School & Higher Education Security Systems in CT & RI
Nationwide Security Corporation takes pride in being a part of the Connecticut school system. We are experts in school safety. We presently secure over two hundred educational institutions across the state, and we are the partner security provider for all of New Haven’s public schools. Additionally, we secure some of the State’s largest colleges and Universities including Yale University West Campus, Southern Connecticut State University, Quinnipiac University, and Polytechnic Institute.
Our school and educational security systems integrate: access control, fire protection, intrusion protection, video surveillance systems, and intercom systems to form one complete system. Buildings that house computers, expensive equipment and important records require special safety, planning and design that include additional security equipment across all doors and entry points.
Today’s school security requires cameras in almost all public corridors, stairwells, and exterior doors, as well as the cafeteria and gymnasium during school hours. Additionally, cameras are an important element to securing playgrounds, school bus drop off areas, parking lots and other school grounds.
On and Off-site Monitoring for Schools
Experts agree that educational institutions should use both in-house security personnel and an offsite monitoring facility. The offsite facility is primarily for backup and after hours monitoring.
Our award-wining UL Central Monitoring Station helps assure your students’ safety.
Our educational security systems include the integration of access cards that are electronically encoded to open doors for designated faulty, staff or students as well as to monitor and track activity. Additional security measures that have become a necessity of late include panic buttons, telephones, and intercoms that keep the classroom connected to the school office, campus security office, and outside security provider.
Nationwide Security Corporation is committed to security for any and all sizes of educational institutions. Our experience is extensive in this field. Download our brochure.
