When it comes to the safety and security of staff and pupils, the most important consideration is getting the right thing done within budgetary constraints.
There are many benefits to installing electronic security on educational sites, from crime prevention to possible reductions in insurance premiums. Here are our top 5 advantages to securing schools.
1. General safety
A correctly installed and maintained security system gives peace of mind to parents and guardians, knowing that students’ safety is addressed during school hours and at after school activities. Correctly used, our systems can also assist with emergency evacuation procedures. Our LED lighting solutions give an extra level of safety throughout the year, together with considerably reduced running costs compared with standard halogen lamps.
2. Crime deterrent
Perimeter fences and gates, and visible CCTV cameras can help to deter theft, vandalism and other crimes. Recorded footage can be invaluable for identifying intruders and trespassers.
3. Improve student conduct
The right school security system can prevent bullying, discourage smoking on campus and stop vandalism.
4. Data protection
Our Access Control security systems help with data protection, with selected doors allowing right of entry only to authorised personnel. Personal files, exam papers and academic records will be kept safe.
Intruder alarms can be programmed to alert specific keyholders and the police of break-ins, and our range of fire alarms can also alert the authorities in the event of a fire. This could assist in lowering insurance premiums. (Talk to your insurance broker to discuss your policy.)
Data storage and privacy regulations are of utmost importance. Secure Engineering can advise on current legislation to ensure that security systems are used correctly, legally and ethically. All our Engineers are our own employees and are security vetted for total peace of mind.
