School Security for Indiana
It is no secret that our schools need to beef up their security more than ever with the recent shootings and mayhem.
Governor Holcomb has called the legislature back for a special session with a request to add $ 5,000,000 for special funding and low-interest loans for school security here in Indiana as WTHR reports.
This is part of the state’s Indiana Secured School Fund, which offers grants to schools for security.
There are many high tech and reasonable cost systems available including hi-def cameras with built-in high noise detection analytics which detect gunshots, glass breaking, and other loud noises. There is a lot of quality free or low-cost software to monitor doors, cameras, and emergencies.
Access control systems can have built-in push notifications or door breaches, unauthorized attempts with immediate lockdown and be triggering alarms and video surveillance feeds to staff, security guards and police.
It's also possible to integrate access control with video cameras on one or more doors for syncing and quick reports. With the internet of things, the systems can door more and more with less and less.
This school is well equipped and has made national media attention. It is great!
With today’s technology, the systems keep getting better and better for less and less. Another example of this is wireless commercial alarms which can cover a large building reliably all kinds of sensors and panic buttons linked to simultaneous notifications to multiple people. 
This site has some handy tips.
There is so much more happening in this space so please contact us for the latest and greatest.

Hanwha Wisenet WAVE software allows easy calibration of fisheye lens cameras with Fisheye Dewarping feature. We can set up the ceiling, wall, floor or table mounted fisheye camera and separate view area into “flat”, easy to see segments for better view and analysis. The Dewarping Calibration can be done automatically or fine-tuned manually. This function is also available for cameras with panamorphic lenses (panamorphic lenses are prism-shaped, projecting video on wide matrices (screens) with HD quality upscale by reordering pixels to make resolution denser without loss of energy to darken unused pixels).
Fisheye IP cameras, deployed by OnGuard Security Solutions, may significantly decrease cost of surveillance with less hardware to purchase and maintain, lower bandwidth consumption, without compromising quality and efficiency.

Video surveillance clients who have been using the Broview app to log into their DVR to remote view cameras need to download SuperLivePro from the Apple app store here and enter the same settings (Port, which is normally 8000, User Name, Password). iOS11 is not currently supported by Broview and the manufacturer has not provided us a time frame when Broview will again be compatible.
The current DVR we use is now running NVMS7000 for remote viewing of video surveillance and security camera systems. If you would like to get quote on upgrading which allows Hi Def 3 mega pixel (10x greater resolution than analog) cameras that will work on the same wire or anything else, contact us for a price and features.

Security Alarms
Fishers has an alarm ordinance that requires homes and businesses with security/fire alarm systems to have an alarm permit application on file with the police department. The purpose of the permit is to accurately track contact information for the owners of these structures and help reduce the number of false fire and security alarms.
The alarm permit has a bi-annual fee of $25 and is non-transferrable. Alarm renewal permit applications are mailed roughly a month in advance of your renewal date. You must make sure to update the police department of any changes in contact information.
The police and fire department respond to every reported alarm. If you accidentally set off the alarm, we ask you to call your alarm company and the non-emergency dispatch at (317) 773-1282 and ask to send a “disregard” message to the officer or fire department.
The ordinance grants three false alarms within a calendar year prior to recording an “offense” false alarm. Beginning with the fourth false alarm, the violation will be considered a first offense and fined accordingly. The fine schedule is progressive in nature. The first offense is $50, second offense is $100, and third and subsequent offenses are $150. You can read the ordinance in its entirety by viewing Title XI, Chapter 111 of the Fishers Code of Ordinances.
The intent of this ordinance is to insure that security/fire alarm systems function properly and that operators are doing their part to minimize false alarms. By reducing our responses to false alarms, duty officers are available to respond to other calls for service.
