Education Institutions can use cost effective IP CCTV over detectors and sensors to increase security & safety. In times of government and council funding cut backs educational premises can use security to preserve their assets without increasing their capital expenditure.

London, UK: Schools, Universities and College security and safety are of paramount importance as we know. It is particularly unique due to the premise attendees and the learning cycle that the individuals are at. The universities have security issues based around a large group of the individuals being from out of town and hence they are targets for local criminals. Bikal has charted the individual risks and threats of the different levels of education premises and the management issues that they face.

Fire systems and other alert systems are driven towards real time alerts and detection for when the buildings are empty. Systems are rarely, if ever, used for detecting or monitoring the pupil behaviour. Retailers are a good example of how they utilise cctv for customer services when the retail premises are analysed for how the consumer moves and goods are positioned in a store. Education institutions can do the same thing to reduce their overall costs of operations and protect their assets. A simple application of BiKal Eyesoft can bring the video analytics required to lower the TCO. A sensor or detector is usually designed for one thing, with IP products and specifically IP CCTV there is an integration possibility to combine functions and features.

Education premises IT professionals are encompassing new IT for learning for the pupils, as highlighted by BETT 2013 at London’s Exel. For the operational efficiency there needs to be collaboration with the caretaker, facilities manager and the head teachers and other staff to make things like fire warnings through to truancy alerts available to all staff. This technology is available but it is the application that needs thought before it is implemented and on some occasions the ICT managers within schools are not the right people to design and future proof the non educational IT requirements.
