Rugged Cameras for Elementary School security

The campus security has raised higher awareness from parents and education authorization around the world. As one of the targets implemented cases, Surrey School Dist. required a more proactive approach to protect students and staff. Adopted AcuVision Intelligent Virtual Fence along with Push Event Notification on mobile devices, school security can effectively verify the incidents and take appropriate measures in a very short time.

On-campus security, the fence intrusion is always the major risk. Due to increased security, based on AcuVision DVR surveillance system with Virtual Fence, the school installed 19 high-resolution IP cameras at the fence surrounding the campus. The IP cameras set up in cascade with birds’ eye view to easily specify detection line and with no blind spot. Once a stranger loiters around or attempts to climb across the fence, the system will send the alerts to the security and trigger the alarm to scare him off at the same time. In addition, the school further deployed its own fiber broadband infrastructure to ensure real-time surveillance video streaming and data retrieval for high reliability.

In order to better adapt to the applied scenarios, the security can specify and set what sizes of moving objects to ignore and exclude from Virtual Fence detection, such as the ball was thrown out of the fence or brandishing the umbrella aside the fence. That is, it can reduce the false alarm problems.

The instant event notification is without compromise. With iOS/Andriod smart devices, Acura Remote iViewer/viewer with Push Event Notification can keep you stay alert and take corresponding actions anytime. When an event happened, the security will receive the Push Event Notification messages to instantly verify the situation and view the event playback video with one click on his/her smart-phone or tablet for effective crisis management.

On the other hand, fence detection is a part of essential surveillance applications on the campus. The school also applied AcuVision Secure Zone Detection, Loitering Detection, and Missing and Left Object Detection to ensure full security objectives entries and fields
