Sonitrol’s Safe Schools program helps put the focus back on learning

No one knows better than educators that schools and universities have become increasingly vulnerable to crime and violence.  A school is three times more likely to be burglarized than a business, and vandalism costs schools more than $1 billion a year. Safety concerns take up significant time and attention. Our experts can help you.

Audio Detection Securitysonitrol_school_graphic_7

Vandals, trespassers and thieves can’t hide from Sonitrol New England. Our unique audio detection technology provides comprehensive coverage and detects attempted break-ins through ceilings, walls, doors and windows. The moment questionable sounds are detected, the system will alert a Sonitrol New England Operator in our Rocky Hill, Connecticut Central Station of any suspicious activity. Our highly trained operators will determine the nature of the threat and contact the appropriate authorities.

Fully integrated protection against fire, theft, vandalism and intrusion

Our solutions limit unauthorized access during and after school hours. Controlling and monitoring use of school buildings and highly sensitive areas such as computer rooms, science laboratories, and administrative offices are critical.  Sonitrol’s access control allows you to limit access to designated areas, or throughout your facilities, by time of day, employee, or other criteria. Sonitrol can report all opening and closing activities by individual, allowing you to track building usage outside of regular hours.
