Fla. Integrator Donates Access Control Solution to Preschool

WILTON MANORS, Fla. As school security continues to be a strong topic throughout the nation, Sonitrol of Fort Lauderdale has donated access control equipment to the Kids in Distress (KID) Preschool here.

As part of the donation, Sonitrol of Fort Lauderdale linked the access control solution to the five-acre campus’ existing security cameras and intercoms, allowing KID’s main office staff to see and speak with anyone who seeks access at the gates on either side of the property. Additionally, the firm provided more than 100 electronically coded key fobs, which allow pre-approved parents and guardians to enter.

“Taking a fresh look at security as part of our long-term strategic plan, we asked Sonitrol of Fort Lauderdale President John Ray for advice,” says KID CEO Mark Dhooge. “The Sonitrol team evaluated every aspect of campus security to help our planning process, and then stepped forward to upgrade the Preschool’s access control system.”

KID is a licensed, nationally accredited agency working for prevention of child abuse, preservation of the family, and care and treatment of abused and neglected children. In addition to the preschool, the organization also operates 10 treatment and intervention facilities, which enable the organization to serve more than 10,000 children and families annually.

“KID protects and nurtures so many of our community’s most vulnerable children,” says Ray. “This preschool has a unique role in Broward, and we’re pleased to help ensure it’s a safe and happy place.”
