School Districts from across the country use LENSEC for managing and monitoring thousands of cameras.

Campus video cameras have been an asset to campus security and physical access control for many years and their presence continues to grow. As the awareness and demand for school safety builds, so does the need for an ever-evolving Integrated Security Management System (ISMS). Integrated systems allow for video surveillance, video analytics, and card access or intrusion detection events to be analyzed within a database for fast retrieval. Integrated systems also alert staff when an event or action escalates, providing accurate video verification which facilitates informed decision-making during a crisis.

Schools often serve as community hubs for activities by sharing athletic fields, meeting areas, or auditoriums with the general public. School security is critical to protect against unfortunate events or to limit liability from accidents or vandalism. Athletic fields in particular represent a significant cost to the local tax base, and this valuable resource is usually vulnerable to threats ranging from graffiti to acts of violence and assault.

Now, with Perspective VMS™ from LENSEC, all cameras (old and new) can be made to do more to enhance school safety in a number of significant ways: Create ad hoc neighborhoods of cameras to follow a developing event. Share a camera view with others who need to know. Provide remote viewing capability without having to install client software. Easily locate and retrieve events stored in video archives. These are just some of the everyday features that will make your security and safety staff more efficient.

Installation of IP video surveillance is also in line with technology acquisition standards. Most cameras can now connect using Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) switches that are common-off-the-shelf components for any IT department. Even installation of remote areas, such as a press box or greenhouse, are accessible using wireless nodes.

LENSEC has time and again been recognized as the leading provider of video surveillance solutions to the education market. 2010 was no exception as LENSEC was once again named Axis Communication's Education Partner of the Year.

Along with security concerns, agencies need to ensure that the right solution is found through a competitive bid process. LENSEC has addressed these concerns for agencies by listing solutions on several cooperative schedules including GSA and TCPN.
