When parents drop their children off at school each day, they do so with the expectation that their child will remain safe from outside intrusion. Unfortunately, what we have learned over the last decade, is that the average school is highly vulnerable—and that school security systems andemergency plans are severely lacking. This is why AE Systems is proud to offer advanced technology-based school security systems, that provide the safety and security features below.
Campus Wide Communication
In the event of any type of school emergency that requires evacuation or a school-wide lockdown, timely communication is imperative. This includes both school wide-communication, as well as communication with emergency responders. Schools can work with AE Systems to custom create a communication system that allows administration to deliver necessary messages to the entire campus within a matter of seconds, as well as allow all staff members—in any location on campus to communicate an emergency or crisis.
When an emergency or crisis occurs in one area of campus, it may not reach areas of the school—or could quickly and easily spread throughout the campus. When AE Systems emergency technology is activated, it will signal an automated chain of emergency actions to lockdown or evacuate the school, and alert officials.
A crisis can happen anywhere on campus, not just in the main office, which is why it is essential for every teacher and school staff member to have access to advanced technology, with built-in automated features. This includes features such as a hands-free intercom, phone-free activation, automated announcements, automated emergency tone systems, and discrete emergency buttons placed in each classroom—and strategically throughout the school.
Remote Surveillance and Communication
Each school can work with AE Systems to upgrade their current emergency response plan, in a manner that best suits their needs. Some schools will opt to further complement their automated emergency response system, and advanced communication technology—with remote surveillance and communication. Remote surveillance allows emergency responders to see what is happening within the school—so that they can best address emergency needs. To further improve crisis resolution, remote surveillance can have remote communication features built-in—both to communicate with the staff, or to communicate with an intruder.
Our children are priceless, and main office, intercom-only emergency communication is no longer sufficient. If your school has yet to upgrade your emergency response plan, reach out to AE systems to inquire about the advanced technology and communication tools we have to offer.
