Jumping Into The IP Campus
Largest Texas school district converting to latest security technology. Houston Independent School District (HISD) is the largest school district in Texas and is the seventh largest school district in the United States. The latest technology is about to make its debut in every school.
Imagine a campus security installation so big that it will take years to complete all the work, and it also means installing solutions with the latest technology and significant impact on school security.
This illustration is the kind of job an integrator can really sink their teeth into. It is the kind of solution that a manufacturer wants to keep on their to-do list.
Houston Independent School District (HISD) is the largest school district in Texas and is the seventh-largest school district in the United States. The latest technology is about to make its debut in every one of HISD’s campuses. HISD has built ten new schools within the district in 2018 and is expected to add another 10 to 12 this year, all of which will be brought on board with new cabling and IP cameras. In all, there are 280 schools in the district.
“At HISD, the safety of students and staff is always the top priority,” district officials said. All new campuses include HISD district-standard safety and security features. These features include designated main entrances, electronic access control systems at security vestibules for visitors’ entry, and frequently used exterior doors. To control visitor movement, features such as building compartmentalization, comprehensive intrusion detection systems with high-definition closed-circuit television cameras, door sensors, motion detectors, alarms, and 24-hour central monitoring were put in place”.
