High School security cameras to feed directly into police department
One of the great advantages of IP surveillance over traditional analog CCTV is remote video monitoring. IP surveillance allows authorized users to access streaming video feeds via the Internet on any PC with a network connection. In the case of Michigan's Carman-Ainsworth High School, this technology will soon provide the local police department with full access to the school's security cameras at all times.
Carman-Ainsworth's video security system currently features 30 digital security cameras situated throughout the building, and along the roof to monitor interior and exterior activity, as well as all entrances and exits. Motion detection activates the cameras, and footage is stored on digital video recorders for 30 days in case a situation requires further investigation. Within the month, the direct feed to the police department should be fully operational, bringing an even greater sense of security to students, faculty, school employees, and parents.
