IP CCTV and Security

Safety and security are key concerns for any school. Ensuring a safe learning environment and zero tolerance of anti-social behaviours, theft and vandalism are essential.Getting the right equipment, camera coverage, reliability, managing access to recorded footage and ensuring good backups require expert help.

At Trusol, we understand the e-safety parameters regarding any locally recorded footage of school children as well as the minimum security measures the schools will expect and we are experts in getting the most out of CCTV systems.

At Trusol, we understand the e-safety parameters regarding any locally recorded footage of school children as well as the minimum security measures the schools will expect from a CCTV system. As part of our “best value” approach, we are also aware that an ideal IP CCTV network needs to be low cost, reliable and easy to manage.

We are experts in helping schools get the most out of their CCTV solution by implementing reliable, scalable and flexible IP based CCTV solutions. These in turn allow your nominated system administrator(s) access to connect to your CCTV cameras and to review recorded footage at any time from any device within the school network environment.

CCTV TECHNOLOGY

CCTV systems have advanced greatly from the days of grainy images stored on video tape. Implementing an IP CCTV network that meets your schools needs requires careful thought.  Getting the right equipment, camera coverage, reliability, accessibility to recorded footage and ensuring a good backup of all your CCTV data requires some expert help. As part of our “best value” approach, we understand that an ideal IP CCTV network needs to be low cost, reliable and easy to manage too.

We always use IP CCTV systems where signals from cameras, microphones, and sensors are digitally encoded and transmitted along a digital network to PC based recording and playback systems. This means that images are higher quality, usually HD and can be stored easily without degradation. Signals are passed along the school network and cameras are usually powered from the network (PoE) meaning that there is no requirement for dedicated power points or special cabling in inaccessible camera locations.

Images are recorded on a local machine in the school and digital recordings are available for instant replays locally or remotely. On top of that, it’s all backed up over your network too.

To ensure security the part of the network used for IP CCTV is digitally locked and cannot be accessed by other network users. Playback and remote access is subject to strict control.

iSPY

When Trusol installs a system we recommend i-Spy Device. This which holds images locally for 30 days and then backs them up to a remote server if required.The i-SPY Device is also accessible via a secure VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection through a website login or encrypted App. The VPN connection tunnels through the network beyond the school gates in a completely secure way. This means it’s possible to remotely access full recordings or specific incidents as well as remotely monitor the system to ensure that it’s working well. All with complete security.

With our expertise, you can be assured that we will get you the IP CCTV system that is right for your school or college. A system that is reliable, scalable, flexible and fully respects e-safety requirements.  We are experts at getting the most out of the system, in a way that is tailor made to support each educational establishment’s needs.
