The public schools in Littleton, Colorado, are demonstrating how security principles can be applied to an entire school system, with the state of the electronic art monitored from a single control center.
“Staff,” advises the Security Industry Association, “can watch video feeds displayed on a wall of 16 screens and view access control information for all facilities on desktop monitors. They can call up the view from any of countless cameras across the school district, check on what doors are locked or unlocked, communicate with schools and law enforcement and, if necessary, initiate a lockdown. All this information can also be accessed on mobile devices by first responders and school staff.”
Pretty cool for school protection.
