|LenSec video management software with 700 Axis network cameras secure Deer Park School campus|
Like many public schools across the nation, Deer Park Independent School District has decided to step up school security in order to ensure the safety and security of its more than 12,300 students and nearly 1,800 teachers and other employees. The district, located near an industrial shipping channel some 20 miles southeast of downtown Houston, Texas, was primarily concerned with access control. They wanted to know exactly who was entering and leaving their campuses and auxiliary buildings and whether visitors had authorisation to enter those facilities.
To achieve that level of vigilance, Deer Park turned to Axis partner, LenSec, a nationwide provider of turnkey IPbased video surveillance solutions to educational institutions. The Houston-based software manufacturer and installation source provided the district with a comprehensive security system for monitoring activity at all 14 campuses, administration building and annex, service centre, transportation yard, agricultural science centre and outdoor learning centre. The district-wide solution integrates LenSec video management software with an array of 700 network cameras from Axis Communications to cover the hallways, cafeterias, exterior entrances and athletic grounds of Deer Park's multiple campuses.
"School administrators now have a more sophisticated investigative tool for solving thefts and vandalism. The new surveillance technology also provides school personnel a proactive way to minimise inappropriate behaviour on school grounds and to document incidents for quick resolution," states Alan Morris, LenSec's Vice President of Business Development. "In addition, the exterior network cameras give administrators an important window to the outside environment so they can respond quickly to protect their students and staff in case of an industrial accident in the area."
