Axis 216 FD network cameras provide school surveillance in the UK
Excelsior Academy, based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, is using Axis 216 FD fixed dome network cameras to increase security in each of its five schools and colleges. The academy was facing a serious problem with vandalism, and hopes that the new IP cameras will help to deter such activity, while also creating a safer environment overall.
The Axis 216 FD is a compact network camera that's perfect for unobtrusive surveillance. It also offers effective protection against tampering and vandalism, which is key in exposed settings such as schools. The cameras have been installed in public areas throughout Excelsior Academy schools in an effort to prevent disruptive behavior.
One benefit of installing security cameras is their ability to act as a deterrent to such unwelcome activity. In many instances, schools see a drop in vandalism and other unruly behavior simply because of the mere presence of surveillance cameras. And for the Excelsior Academy, the cameras have already provided valuable visual evidence of reported incidents. The clear footage provided by the Axis 216 fixed dome cameras helps for detailed analysis and identification purposes. The flexibility of the IP-based surveillance system also allows staff to login and access the cameras from the office, or remotely, and makes it easy for important footage to be shared anywhere across the Academy's network.
