Video surveillance has traditionally been used to verify incidents after the fact. That mindset is rapidly changing as video analytics mature to a point where cameras can proactively alert security professionals who can then intervene in real-time. Having audio as an integrated part of a video surveillance system can also be an invaluable addition to a school’s ability to detect and interpret events and emergency situations. The ability of audio to cover a 360-degree area enables a video surveillance system to extend its coverage beyond a camera’s field of view. 

Today, audio can also be used to provide security professionals with the ability to not only listen in on an area, but also communicate orders or requests to visitors or intruders. Audio-enabled access control — that is, a remote ‘doorman’ at an entrance — is another area of application especially relevant for educational institutions, which need to be secure but available after hours.

This session will share real-world examples of how audio combined with video can help officers respond to security situations on campus and intervene in real-time.
