The topic of unwanted intruders entering campus buildings is a top priority for security administrators, especially given the recent active shooter incidents in the news.
Convergint Technologies can implement an Aiphone Door Intercom solution that has the ability to see and speak with visitors before letting them into your school buildings. This can include classroom communication, bell scheduling, and paging for an entire campus, while also providing complete access control to multiple schools at the district level.
This intercom system can integrate with a card access control system and replace traditional door keys with programmable key cards. Use card reader door stations inside your school to allow authorized personnel with access cards into restricted areas.
Control access with Aiphone master stations. Identify visitors and determine their reason for entering before unlocking the door. Give faculty an efficient way to communicate with classrooms and other offices. Use an existing PA system to page, make general announcements, or broadcast emergencies throughout the building. Maintain a secure school or campus by monitoring any location where door or call stations are installed.
Reduce the risk of harm to students and staff by alerting of potential threats. Instantly reach the main office with room stations if a situation occurs. Answer a page using hands-free or handset room stations. Choose hands-free stations for open-voice conversations or handset stations for both open-voice and private conversations. Use new or existing speaker systems so all pages, bells, announcements, and emergency notifications can be heard throughout the entire school or district.
Utilize Aiphone call stations in areas prone to vandalism, theft, or violence. These provide your students and staff a means to immediately call for help when a problem or emergency occurs. Place speakers in cafeterias, hallways, playgrounds, or other noisy environments where louder amplification is needed. Integrate with bell schedules to be sure everyone is alerted during routine class changes or during emergency notifications.
Deter prowlers by installing emergency towers with dual‑call stations around your campus. Students and staff can call for urgent help or for general assistance. Place emergency wall boxes with dual‑call stations in parking garages, stairwells, or other remote areas where trouble might be lurking. Install dual-call stations independent from the emergency wall boxes or towers if emergency calling is needed in areas where the wall boxes or towers will not fit.
