Ideal school solutions to prevent active shooter incidents

Ideal school solutions to prevent active shooter incidents
With active shooter incidents at an all-time high in US schools, the need for protection and prevention of gun violence against students and faculty has never been so critical.
With active shooter incidents at an all-time high in US schools, the need for protection and prevention of gun violence against students and faculty has never been so critical. A complete security and surveillance solution is necessary to deter, monitor, report, and prevent these situations to protect students and faculty from gun violence.

For quite some time now, security solution providers across the globe have been trying different ways to minimize threats in this vertical. But not all of them have been successful, given the complex nature of schools, which need to ensure they create a comfortable environment for students without compromising on security.

This is where 3S Pocketnet Technology, one of the pioneers of surveillance solutions based in Taiwan, offers some of the most effective solutions to customers.

What 3S offers schools

According to Kevin Cheng, Senior Manager of Sales and Marketing at 3S Pocketnet Technology, a range of top-end solutions are critical to ensuring security in today’s schools. This involves the use of AI-enabled security cameras placed in entry/exit areas, common areas, hallways, parking lots, and school perimeters, which offer schools the ability to monitor the perimeter and campus for potential threats of gun violence.

“3S AI video security cameras placed at perimeter locations, entry/exit points, and parking lots enable school security officials to identify gunmen before they reach the campus,” Cheng said. “Placement of security cameras in common areas, hallways, and bathroom entry/exit points allow school officials to identify suspicious activities, bullying, and a person’s demeanor. 3S access control using facial recognition or card access installed at school entry/exit points and classrooms equips school officials with the ability to limit access to campus and classrooms to authorized personnel.”

A properly managed access control system allows school authorities to lock down campus and classrooms immediately if a gunman manages to enter the school campus. Installing 3S AI cameras at perimeter locations and 3S command center at the central monitoring facility offers schools the ability to connect cameras to perimeter fence intrusion detection systems, reed switches, or use crossline detection feature of the camera.

This provides schools with the ability to monitor and get alerts for school perimeter breaches or identify school entry access points that have been left open. Using 3S command center video analytics’ smart search installed in the central monitoring center allows school security to track movements of a gunman throughout the school campus.

How 3S makes it special

3S develops and manufactures its products in Taiwan, in an environment that nurtures creativity and innovation while maintaining a clear perspective of the market requirements. While this itself ensures that the company’s products are superior quality, the relatively low manufacturing costs in Taiwan allows 3S to offer the products at a competitive price range.

“3S offers a broad range of products including analog, IP cameras, transportation solutions that are easy to integrate and customize,” Cheng explained. “For more than 30 years, Taiwan’s ICT sector has been renowned for its ability to compete with the best in the world. With high workforce quality, infrastructure, and an innovative approach, 3S is able to offer solutions that are cost-effective but high quality.”

Solutions to meet compliance requirements

Besides offering state-of-the-art solutions, 3S helps you make sure your customers are able to meet regulatory requirements in the US market.

“3S is manufactured in Taiwan, which is one of the countries designated on the TAA (Trade Agreement Act) compliance list,” Cheng said. “TAA requires that end products from designated countries be treated the same as US-made products for government procurement purposes.”
3S’s main product portfolio is NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) compliant. 3S does not use banned components listed in the NDAA section 889. NDAA, specifically section 889, prohibits federal agencies, their contractors and grant/loan recipients from procuring or using “covered telecommunications equipment or services” from specific Chinese companies - more specifically, equipment or services as a “substantial or essential component of any system, or as critical technology as part of any system.”

To top it all, the 3S factory has obtained  ISO 9001, ISO 140001 certifications, guaranteeing the quality of products that are manufactured there. In short, with 3S, your end customers in the education sector would have complete peace of mind, knowing their students and assets are protected at the best price possible.
