From primary schools through to universities, regardless of project size - Mytec are focused on helping schools and education centres determine the security solution for their business needs. In consultation with yourselves, we can determine the solution to achieve your requirements. We offer a variety of services, from specify & supply through to full system designs.
At present Academies and Multi Academies do not need compliance with the surveillance camera code of practice. However, with the growing increase in CCTV in education it may be prudent to gain compliance in advance of any changes. As Multi Academy Trusts grow it is not uncommon for them to have upwards of 10 Academies, it may be considered that all CCTV viewings be conducted remotely at Head Office with software that can support your safeguarding policy.
Having been in the industry for many years, our team have worked with various clients within the education sector, this includes; Sheffield Hallam University, University of Leeds and United Learning (Multi Academy Trust), in both technical and operational roles that have enhanced their education centres.
How We Can Help
We appreciate that not everybody is searching for a complete new system. Mytec can also help with an existing CCTV system. You can use the specify & supply service for sourcing replacement or additional camera(s) for a system.
If you have plans for a new system we can discuss your options and ways to ensure your new system is fit for purpose. A high definition IP digital system on your existing network may be an option. If preferred, a dedicated CCTV network could be installed, consisting of all active equipment to ensure the system can operate independently of the school’s IT network. If you currently have an analogue CCTV system installed, we may be able to upgrade the equipment for high definition whilst reutilising your existing cabling. Hybrid technologies available today allow for high definition images on coaxial cabling, often significantly reducing installation costs.
If your school has a playground that is a problem area we may suggest cameras installed on the school building to provide an overview of the playground. Another solution could be a wireless camera installed at the bottom of the playground, transmitting images back to the school. Analytic technologies may be a solution to see if an out of bounds area or door was entered. Whatever the scenario, we will assist to find a solution.
With the recent progression in CCTV technologies, there are a wide variety of solutions that can be achieved. We can also offer equipment for an evaluation process and have rental and finance packages available. If you have an idea for a project or just require advise on an additional camera, you can contact the Mytec team today.
