The sad truth is that educators today must be as mindful of threats to the physical safety of students as they are of their learning needs. Fortunately, advances in digital technology can help you fulfill these missional safety requirements.
When it comes to protecting students and staff from violence, for example, digital access controls combined with full-coverage ultra-high definition audio/video surveillance are indispensable. Complement that surveillance with advanced A/V analytics, and you’ll be able to automatically detect anomalous activity that could quickly indicate a potential threat or an event in progress.
Add the necessary capabilities for emergency communications with local first responders, and you can build a complete state-of-the-art real-time threat response system that dramatically improves safety everywhere for everyone across your environment.
Thermal imaging can also be extraordinarily useful for detecting and stopping individuals with communicable illnesses from entering your facility. When combined with video imaging, thermal imaging can also help with the contact tracing that is so important for protecting your entire community.
