The use of CCTV in schools and business can be broken down into several broad categories:

  • Personal safety of students, teachers, and other stakeholders

  • Occupational health and safety

  • Behaviour monitoring

  • Litigation reduction

  • Protection of building infrastructure assets and learning tools (e.g. laptops)

Security Benefits

Issues such as burglary, vandalism, anti-social behaviour, and unwanted visitors need to be addressed by all education establishments. With the ever-increasing cost of new technologies in schools, the risk of burglary and vandalism need to be given the appropriate consideration. Having surveillance solutions can be a great tool to decrease the risk of such issues.

Behavioural Benefits

CCTV is now being used to reduce bullying by placing cameras at strategic locations. When an incident occurs, a teacher can review the footage and identify the culprit or culprits. Some schools are using CCTV footage as an evidence to show the parents of misbehaved students that their child has a problem.

Providing a safe and convenient environment for pupils, students and staff: 

  • Differentiate easily who has access and when to such different places as offices, residences, laboratories, libraries, athletic and cultural facilities, common areas, etc.

  • Distinguish access not just by physical location but also by duration, easily managing access for short-term guests (i.e., conference attendees), contract and temporary workers, as well as staff and students.

  • Integrate access control along with other campus services (i.e., cashless vending, canteens, library systems, transportation) all on one credential.

  • System flexibility permits the easy change of access plans thereby facilitating the individual programming of certain installations for conferences, sport and cultural events, etc.

  • In emergency situations, the local lockdown feature allows authorized users to put SALTO electronic locks into stand-alone lockdown mode.
