It is vital that children and staff are able to feel safe in their school or college and electronic security solutions provided by SECOM can help to ensure this is the case, providing a calm, secure environment for students to learn and teachers teach with minimal disruptions.

SECOM designs, installs and monitors CCTV systems for schools, providing continuous on-site monitoring and recording through each camera during school hours. When the institution is closed, operators are able to control the cameras at SECOM’s 24-hour remote video monitoring response centre, spotting any unwelcome intruders and using a loudspeaker system to ward them off and notifying the police where necessary. This provides an excellent deterrent against vandalism or theft of school property.

Tailored Solutions

SECOM is experienced in designing and installing a wide variety of school security systems, including – but not limited to – intruder alarms, door-entry controls, CCTV and even advanced personal attack alarms.

One example of the ways in which a SECOM solution has helped to significantly improve school safety can be seen at the Japanese School in London, where an institution requested a fully-integrated intruder alarm system. This included advanced personal attack technology and CCTV.

In addition, an extensive and well-rehearsed emergency plan was produced, while staff and pupils were also given specially-designed training.

Controlling Access To Schools

Safeguarding students and preventing them coming into contact with those they should not is a vital aspect of a school’s responsibilities. SECOM offers industry-leading visitor management solutions developed by InVentry.
