Dallmeier CCTV / IP video surveillance solutions for schools
The propensity of young people to use violence has increased alarmingly in recent years. Besides damages to property resulting from break-ins, vandalism and theft, fights and violent disputes are on the increase at schools. Meanwhile, modern video surveillance solutions are increasingly used in schools and universities. They are supplied, for example, by Dallmeier.
A feeling of security
Just the physical presence of a surveillance camera reduces theft, vandalism and violence to a minimum. In conversations with school officials it was found that teachers as well as caretakers, cleaning staff and pupils and students respectively felt considerably safer once a video surveillance system had been installed.
Innovative and easy to use technology
Dallmeier offers different recorders, servers and appliances depending on the particular needs of any school. All devices are high-resolution digital security recording systems. Any of those can be integrated with external data sources and/or connected into overriding management systems. Motion detection is integrated for all camera inputs. Thus, recording only takes places when there is an activity, which ensures that the existing storage is used effectively.
Comprehensive surveillance mechanisms (e.g. dynamic fan control, monitoring of exterior and interior temperature, diagnosis of assembly groups, voltage control, etc.) guarantee highest operational stability and a long life cycle of the recording devices.
Furthermore, Dallmeier offers vandal-resistant dome cameras, which even enable the video surveillance of the most sensitive areas. The high-resolution IP cameras provide clear and high-contrast images without any blooming or smearing effects.
The management software SMAVIA Viewing Client offers the perfect interface for the comfortable processing of live pictures and recorded pictures.
Data protection requirements always met
Data protection requirements are not breached by monitoring schools. Usually, only the school exterior is monitored (playgrounds, sports grounds etc.) and in any case the cameras can be turned off during the school day. Some cameras located in areas that are particularly prone to theft such as bicycle stands are set to record continuously. If no theft is reported, the data are automatically overwritten after a specified period of time (e.g. two days if that is what the customer chooses).
Rights for viewing the pictures are allocated according to the pre-determined user profile. For example, the on-site operator, perhaps the teacher responsible for security, has the right to view the recordings and, if necessary, copy footage to a DVD. It is usual that this access authorisation is set up to require adhering to the four-eye-principle. This ensures that recordings can only be viewed together with the headmaster or a member of the student representation. The actual criminal prosecution is then carried out by the police.
