Davis School District is the second largest in Utah and ranks 52nd in the U.S. Given its large student population spread across 299 square miles, the school district has placed a high value on maintaining the safety and security of its schools, each of which is equipped with a video surveillance system.
Until recently, those systems were analogue across the district – but given the performance and quality of video those systems generate, Davis School District changed that.
Dome camera with built-in-motion detectionThe SND-6084R is a fixed-dome type with built-in motion detection, which is ideal for covering areas where nobody should be at night
The choice to go with Samsung IP cameras district-wide was based primarily on the quality of the cameras. Samsung’s recorders and Samsung Security Manager (SSM) video management system solidified the decision. Along with other models, the system employs the SND -6084R, a fixed – dome with built-in-motion detection, as well as the SNP -6200RH, PTZ camera.
Samsung Techwin offers more than one camera with infrared illumination to support day/night use in outdoor areas, but they have different capabilities. The SND-6084R is a fixed-dome type with a wide field-of-view. With built-in motion detection, it’s ideal for covering areas where nobody should be at night.
Integrating video surveillance with intrusion detection
In contrast, the SNP-6200RH is a PTZ-type camera, which might be better for an active parking lot, for example, where a security officer can use the PTZ function to have a closer look at something if necessary.
Following each installation, the Samsung cameras have demonstrated their value several times over. As the number of Samsung cameras continues to grow, the Davis School District will be integrating video surveillance with intrusion detection systems to further enhance the ability to identify the cause of and respond to burglar alarms. Upgrades will continue for the foreseeable future as funding becomes available and technology continues to advance.
