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.
