Surveillance Systems in Schools
After all of the school violence in the past 10-15 years, parents and communities have requested more and more security for their schools. Recently we are hearing of schools installing not only access control but also surveillance systems to be sure that no one goes in or out of the building undetected. They are installing cameras and duress buttons so that in the case of another violent act they will be able to communicate with the outside world without risking the lives of any of the students or personnel in the building. As parents, the most important job we have is to keep our kids healthy and safe and when they are out of our sight this becomes the job of those we trust our kids to. Children as young as 2nd and 3rd grade have been reported bringing weapons to school and then you hear about outside threats like what happened in Sandy Hook where a family member of one of the teachers came in and killed 20 children and 6 adults. As a result of this, the schools need to be protected better. With surveillance systems in place the evidence to put these criminals away will be right in front of their eyes and could very easily deter the criminals from acting on their intentions in the first place. Crime is going to happen no matter what because we have a society that has in so many ways devolved and the best way to respond is to protect the people and things we love the best we know how. At least with a surveillance camera the perfect crime is becoming a thing of the past.
Cameras, however, do not only need to be in our schools to protect our kids. With our economy the way it is and the cost of living going up more and more parents are both working and even more of them are single parents. We have no choice but to work full time to support our family and maintain a comfortable lifestyle. So more children are home alone after school and in that case a bigger target for thieves and criminals. What better way to ensure that your kids are safe and secure then to be able to watch over them from your phone, tablet or computer at work? With a remote access surveillance system you can log in from anywhere and check on your home and your children anytime and be sure that they are free from harm and even make sure they are behaving the way you expect hem to when you are not home.
