Educational Institutions are made up of teaching facilities, research labs, libraries, sports complexes, resident halls, restaurants, retail stores, and parking lots. These units can be spread over a few city blocks or several miles. As such, developing the proper infrastructure to assure safe and secure environments is a challenge.

Most well-designed systems will include detection, alarms, intercoms, security video, access control, Security Guards, Police Officers, visitor management, designated parking with barriers, and more. After careful planning, installation, and testing of an appropriate security system, Security Teams must develop processes to mitigate risk and respond to incidents when they occur. This can be a mighty challenge in such a complex environment.

Most Educational Institutions do not have fully integrated security devices and applications. In fact, multiple technologies often operating in silos, make it difficult to understand the complete picture. What’s more, most systems are not set up to monitor the operating status of each device or application. This makes it impossible to detect when something is down, malfunctioning, or compromised. Security Teams requires tools that offer detection as well as 24/7 remote and instant access along with speedy dissemination of good and productive information.

This is why Educational Institutions rely on the Vunetrix SMART Dashboard. The Sensor Monitoring, Alerting, and Reporting Technology continuously scans the status, activity, and performance of every IP security device and application throughout the entire city. Having a single-view SMART Dashboard allows Security Teams to see system health and status through a single-pane-of-glass. What’s more, when there is a problem or anomaly detected, Security Teams are alerted in real-time via email.
By automating device and application health checks and providing visibility through a central location, Educational Institutions can redeploy the guard force to other matters while maintaining a proactive approach to security management. In addition, risk mitigation and speedy time to resolution are achieved with unprecedented efficiency.
Undoubtedly, the Vunetrix SMART Dashboard gives Educational Institutions peace of mind as they can count on proactive detection to security system issues and real-time alerts long before an incident occurs.
