Security Monitoring Solution: Prioritizing Safety and Nipping Threats in the Bud

Posted on May 26, 2023


Located in a remote area with limited educational resources, the school occupies a large area and boasts a pleasant environment and abundant natural resources, providing students with ample space for learning and exploration.

"We have been searching for a reliable security solution to ensure the safety of all our staff and students in the school. FS's solution is comprehensive, meeting all our security needs including surveillance, access control, and emergency response. Their equipment and technology are state-of-the-art, providing high-quality monitoring and protection services."

Customer Needs & Challenges

In recent years, there have been frequent reports of teaching incidents, violence, and accidents in primary and secondary schools on the news, making school safety a hot topic and drawing attention from various sectors of society, parents, and school leaders.

Due to the school's large area, wide perimeter wall coverage, and complex surrounding environment, traditional manual patrols are no longer sufficient to meet the needs of school security management. Therefore, the implementation of a school network video monitoring system is necessary to build a safe school.

The Solution

The implementation of a school network video surveillance system aims to comprehensively cover all areas of the school using advanced video monitoring technology and intelligent analysis algorithms, achieving 24/7 monitoring and ensuring school safety through real-time alerts and remote management.

Digital Access Management Enhances School Security

FS installed dual-lens PTZ dome camera IPC204-2M-PD at the school entrances and exits. The camera supports dual-lens stitching, with a fixed lens covering the panoramic view and a PTZ lens focusing on details, achieving both global and detailed coverage. It captures 2MP full HD video, providing detailed facial information, digitally recording student entry and exit, and ensuring reliable and easy-to-analyze data.

In addition, facial recognition terminals IPC507ET-2M-W and OFG8501 series gate products are installed at the entrances and exits, quickly identifying the identities of teachers, students, and staff, preventing unidentified individuals from entering and effectively preventing unauthorized individuals from entering the school and posing a threat to the safety of teachers and students. The facial recognition terminal takes facial photos of students through the camera, performs facial recognition and comparison, and then stores records of successful detections. When students arrive at the access gates, the facial recognition terminal can send corresponding I/O signals to control the gate's opening and closing, thus managing student entry and exit. This approach improves the school's supervision and control over student entry and exit of school, while also improving school management efficiency and safety.

Digital Access Management

The school entrances and exits are not only passageways, but also a critical focus for school security. Mr. Chen mentioned that their school currently lacks electronic access control systems or other automated devices to track student entry and exit. Relying solely on gatekeepers and teachers manually recording student entries and exits is often inaccurate and prone to omissions or errors.

School Security Upgraded with High-definition Intelligent Monitoring

According to Director Chen, the newly built school is large and has a broad perimeter wall, covering students from elementary, middle, and high school levels. Due to the scattered student activity areas, occasional unauthorized individuals climb over the wall, posing a threat to the safety of students and teachers. However, the limited number of security personnel makes it challenging to prevent potential criminals in a timely manner, further exacerbating safety risks.

To ensure the safety of students and teachers, FS installed a high-definition sound and light alarm turret camera IPC204-5M-P around the perimeter of the school. The camera supports the detection of intruders climbing over the wall, automatically tracking and recording their whereabouts, and actively deterring illegal entry personnel. Its intelligent behavior detection technology focuses on the human body, reducing the possibility of false alarms. Moreover, when an intrusion target is detected, it promptly notifies school security, thus ensuring school safety.

In addition, the camera's 120dB wide dynamic range (WDR) technology captures a broader range of brightness. Even in environments with strong backlighting during the day, it minimizes the shadow effect and produces vivid images, making it difficult for potential criminals to escape justice.

High-definition Intelligent Monitoring

Furthermore, the camera uses LightHunter technology to ensure the highest quality images in low-light environments, even capturing human portraits in sandy weather. These advanced technologies and features provide strong support for school security, reducing school safety risks.

Building a Secure School with Smart Video Surveillance

School violence and emergencies are not only a hot topic of concern in society, but also a key hurdle to overcome in building a safe school. A secure and safe learning environment is the top factor for parents when choosing a school. Director Chen stated, "The surveillance equipment on the old school is quite outdated, with unclear images and a lack of sound recording function, making it difficult for us to fully restore sudden events and difficult to discern the truth of violent incidents. Sometimes, surveillance even fails to record, posing potential risks to the safety of teachers and students."

Therefore, in this school security monitoring solution, FS has equipped different types of cameras and monitoring devices according to different functional areas to achieve 24/7 high-definition intelligent video monitoring without blind spots. Multiple lens cameras IPC501-2x4M-B and indoor zoom cameras IPC305-5M-D, and IPC304-8M-D are installed in different buildings and indoor areas, with built-in microphones and professional noise reduction technology to filter background noise and obtain clear sound. When any accidents occur in the classroom, audio and video can be played back synchronously, effectively retracing the original situation of the event and avoiding the problem of difficulty restoring the truth of accidents due to human intervention. The zoom camera IPC305-5M-D in the corridor area supports the 9:16 corridor mode, adjusting the focus to obtain a wide-angle image covering the entire corridor without the need to move the camera, reducing the occurrence of school violence or malicious injury incidents.

Building a Secure School
