ANPR CCTV for schools

ANPR Camera Systems for schools are a fantastic way to provide secure access to your school car park and premises.

These camera systems are set up to capture an image of a car registration as it nears your school. If the registration number is in the system,  access will be authorised. If it isn’t the driver will have to wait at the entrance to your school gates and call through, usually via an intercom system.

Where security is a key concern, particularly in managing the flow of traffic around your school we would highly recommend looking at an ANPR system.

For a school, an ANPR camera system can be used in the following ways.

  • Allowing access to registered vehicles owned by parents and staff
  • Providing ad-hoc access to the premises for deliveries and those coming in for meetings
  • Spotting vehicles that violate speeding rules or drive in an anti-social manner and taken appropriate action
  • Permanently remove access to vehicles that flout site rules or where the owners behave inappropriately on site

I've partnerred with Safeguard on several projects before and I wouldn't go anywhere else for a quality security system installation. Our client, a high-end hair salon required a full studio design and fit-out along with a highly effective CCTV system to help protect and watch over their premises.

Safeguard Systems fitted a complete camera and intruder beam system for my storage compound, started the job very quickly and explained what was possible clearly. Really happy with the system, the remoter viewing capabilities and I've had no reliability issues either.

    Frequently asked questions

    Looking for a little more information before getting in touch? Have a read our our school security FAQs today.

    What are the different types of school security system?

    The different types of school security systems are CCTV, access control, perimeter surveillance and alarms. Each system serves to address different security aims and objectives.

    CCTV cameras help to protect pupils and staff, and deter break ins and vandalism.

    Door access systems secure schools against unauthorised access and help to manage the flow of staff, pupils and visitors around the site.

    The cost of a school security system varies deepening on the requirements and the equipment that is installed.

    For CCTV and perimeter security systems the cost is a multiple of the volume of cameras deployed, wiring, the system and labour time.

    Door access systems are costed on a per door basis covering door contacts, card readers and installation time.

    When looking for a school security company we recommend asking if their installers and engineers are DBS checked.

    Safety is paramount to a school and a company with DBS-checked engineers is likely to be professional and worth dealing with.

    Also, ask if they are SSAIB approved. SSAIB is a security body that audits companies on their register to ensure they are following strict security protocols.

    Schools have to deal with a range of security risk and threats.
