Whether your school has yet to re-open, or you’re thinking about how you can keep your campus secure during the summer months, this blog post will explore how cloud surveillance offers school districts the ability to easily and securely protect their campuses all year long.

Cloud Surveillance Benefit #1: Uninterrupted 24/7 Recording


School violence and vandalism can occur at any time – and when school isn’t in session, it poses an even higher risk.

When an intruder comes onto their property, get alerted in real-time, download the footage from your smartphone, and send it onto authorities within minutes.

Cloud cameras offer triple-redundant, high-resolution video surveillance stored in a T4 data center, so your video footage is always there when you need it.

Cloud Surveillance Benefit #2: Easy Multi-User Management

From small to large school districts, Cloud video surveillance lets their entire security team create an unlimited number users for viewing live and recorded video.

New user setup takes just a few minutes each – with the additional flexibility of adding or deleting users as staff members change. While a traditional system requires you to install a recorder at each individual school, Cloud surveillance allows you to have full control of your footage from a centralized location.

While retrieving data from a traditional system can be a tedious process with multiple users, Cloud video surveillance makes finding, viewing, and downloading footage instantaneous. 

Log in from a centralized interface, click on the footage by time and or event, and download your video footage within minutes. 

Cloud Surveillance Benefit #3: Unlimited Viewing with No Bandwidth Issues

One of the most significant limitations of traditional systems is its capability to provide streaming power for multiple users. School districts are a prime example of these accessibility restrictions.

For example, a district which may have over a dozen schools with over 50 users are all being pulled for one recorder simultaneously.

Accessing video footage from the Cloud allows you to have unlimited viewing sessions at any given time. The robust, T4 data center handles bandwidth seamlessly – removing typical bandwidth limitations present with traditional, on-premise systems.

Unlike a traditional security system with limited bandwidth and streaming, a cloud solution provides unlimited users and concurrent streaming from a centralized location. Cloud video security removes the burden and complexity of accessibility challenges, with a more secure solution.  

Cloud Surveillance Benefit #4: Complement your On-Premise System

With a simple plug-and-play deployment, add Cloud cameras to complement your school’s existing on-premise system for redundant footage.

Cloud cameras are maintained remotely and automatically – no additional hardware and associated fees required.   If you have a traditional system, there’s no need to overhaul your existing system and replace each one with cloud cameras.

Simply add one, two, or twenty cloud cameras to each entrance, or high-risk area. As the needs of your school or district grows, so can your cloud camera count – making the hybrid cloud model an affordable and ultra-simple strategy for securing your business.
