Turning Existing Security Cameras Into Security Guards
Many security cameras installed today are high resolution enough to be utilized with ZeroEyes technology. This capacity to retrofit makes the product much more accessible. With an additional server rack, and the time to install, your facility can begin improving upon your security very quickly. Every educational facility deserves to provide a healthy learning environment for everybody involved.
One of the problems with certain security measures is that they end up causing more anxiety. The sheer visibility of metal detectors in schools can make people feel uncomfortable. While providing an unfortunately necessary protocol to protect people from an unexpected disaster, you can create a toxic environment. It may be required in some places to have high security checks but in schools it is best if the protection can be relatively unnoticed.
The notion of arming teachers makes many people nervous. Without weighing in on whether or not that is a viable strategy for defense, it can be agreed that this could add significant worry & concern for people. Just as in the case of adding metal detectors or other machinery for people to check in with at the entrance, introducing more weapons on the premises does not generally increase a feeling of calm.
Many states have a surplus of funding available to them for school security measures. There are simply not enough solutions to accommodate the current needs. People do not know what to do with their available resources. The typical tactics taken to make improvements have been adding armed security guards or teachers, metal detectors, and increasing the number of cameras. As previously stated, the first two solutions tend to increase anxiety and make people feel less safe. Adding security cameras may be helpful for places that lack coverage. However, it is still infeasible for a human being to monitor hundreds of cameras every day, especially when the likelihood of an incident occurring is (thankfully) fairly low.
Adding support to already existing security cameras is an excellent way to make efficient use of state & federal funding to improve school security.
While horrible, and increasing in frequency, a school shooting is still a very rare occurrence. Hopefully ZeroEyes technology never detects a weapon on any of your security cameras. During normal operations, ZeroEyes can still support school personnel in monitoring the school.
