We help enhance overall education campus security, while also protecting your school against incidents that can lead to litigation.
Education Campus Security Challenges
Common issues associated with often multi-site educational facilities include vandalism and disruptive behavior, unwanted visitors and the need to manage access levels. Surveillance and access control issues related to the protection of the student population, as well as a means of broad area real-time notification to students and faculty of any immediate danger, are growing campus security needs.
Reductions in school budgets due to decreasing contributions by states in general, the increasing politicization of school safety, and other issues regarding the effectiveness of educational spending and funds allocation have been pushing schools’ safety needs lower on priority lists in many school communities in today’s society. Working with constricting budgets, Koetter Security can help supply schools with a cost-effective, yet flexible security solution for their all of their facilities from preschools and K-12 schools, to private and boarding schools and college campuses of all sizes.

Integrated Access Control and Video Surveillance
Koetter Security’s Access Control and Video products provide complete integrated solutions that allow synchronizing alarm monitoring and video surveillance. Using mobile alarm monitoring stations, officers can respond while viewing a real-time video of an emergency situation. Our access control systems can lock down campus facilities, allowing entry to only authorized personnel in a crisis.
Alarm messages can be broadcast over multiple annunciation technologies such as text messages, graphic displays, reverse 911 systems and even over existing fire alarm voice annunciation panels. Any unauthorized access attempts or movements in predefined fields of view will trigger an alarm that will be captured by video cameras which are then recorded onto the digital video management system.
Even non-door devices such as podiums with electronic equipment inside can be controlled by cards to restrict access and protect assets. Koetter’s security solutions include “Double Swipe” technology that allows faculty members to unlock and disarm classrooms on command without keypads or alarm panels.
Using Student ID credentials to access campus events
Limiting and controlling access through checkpoints and limiting access to restricted areas throughout the campus is the obvious security best practice to implement or improve. Using a wireless mobile card reading solution, student and faculty ID’s can be checked for authorized entry to sporting and other events alike at mobile locations. The card record database can be automatically updated by master campus databases and be screened quickly, effectively, and efficiently.
