School security systems for tracking visitors

Schools & Education

There are countless types of security systems for schools available – some of which you may already be using:

VisiPoint Compatible Security Systems

Which security system do you use?

  • Keycards & Fobs
  • Intercoms
  • Electric Barriers
  • Video Surveillance
  • Intruder Alarms

 

If you currently have Keycards or Fobs for door access, VisiPoint can make use of them and allowing your staff to sign in and out using their current access card/fob in a matter of seconds.

But, have you thought about a school visitor tracking system?
What is that, I hear you say?

Well, you’ll probably have a paper-based solution in place at the moment, which is both out-dated and time consuming.

A visitor arrives at your reception, with or without an appointment, then signs-in using a visitor book or a printed sheet of paper.

The office team then provides the visitor with a badge, which may also need filling-in, before contacting the visitor’s host of their arrival.

All of this comes at a cost in resources and time. The office team has more important duties to complete, and can make better use of their time. As far as resources are concerned – think of the savings on paperwork, ink and stationary alone!

Does this sound familiar?


Now, do you know exactly who is in and out of your premises in “real time”?

VisiPoint does! A quick check of your management dashboard (accessed from any web browser) will show you all live attendance and activities instantly, wherever you are.


What happens if there’s an emergency?

  • Is the information in your visitor book and personnel files fully up to date at all times?
  • Did the visitor sign out before they left?
  • Can you read their handwriting?
  • Do you know what they look like?

During an emergency/evacuation situation, these scenarios can be a major cause for concern.

Having to multi-task – such as handling documents, printing lists, ushering to the exit point, conducting a headcount etc. – in an emergency situation is ineffective and, in some cases, unsafe.
