Manage site access with ANPR security cameras - gate automation & access control for schools

ANPR cameras are the perfect choice for schools looking to restrict and grant access to their grounds.

Approved number plates are stored in a central database.

Gates and barriers can be programmed to grant access to approved vehicles based on number plate recognition technology.

These systems are often deployed where the threat of drug dealing, anti-social behaviour and other safeguarding issues are key security concerns.

The number plates of suspicious vehicles can also be stored in the database. If they approach a site, the ANPR camera will send an alarm signal to your security team to take the appropriate action.

Further to number plate recognition, key fob, key card, and intercoms can manage site access.


Intercoms for schools - helping to manage visitor access

For schools that need to manage the flow of site visitors, an intercom is an effective security solution.

At Safeguard, we design and install either video or audio intercoms. They can integrate with other school access control and door security systems.

Video intercoms offer reception staff peace of mind knowing only approved visitors can gain access to a site.

Audio intercoms offer an alternative and can be deployed to manage deliveries and internal access to sensitive areas of the site such as server rooms.

    Frequently asked questions

    Is access control important for schools?

    If you are looking to secure your school and unauthorised access, then yes it is very important.

    Furthermore, for schools looking to modernise and track the whereabouts of pupils, staff and visitors a door security or access control system is highly suited to fulfilling this objective.

    There are a few options available to help manage and secure door access for a school.

    Firstly, key fob door entry systems help to manage access to, from and around the school. These systems also provide location data – perfect for health and safety.

    Secondly, Intercoms provide an extra layer of security, particularly for reception staff.

    Lastly, ANPR cameras can be used for gate automation. This is particularly useful for schools set on vast grounds where the main entrance gate is located far from reception.


    The pros are these systems help you manage the flow of people in and around your site.

    Furthermore, they help to keep a track of who is in the building. Additionally, these systems can be set up to lockdown a school in the event of a significant security threat.

    The cons are minimal. Of course, these systems cost money so that can be a factor if budgets are tight. Furthermore, some people may have privacy concerns if they are being tracked however, the safety factors far outweigh this concern.

    This really depends on the budget.

    Paxton offers a fantastic range of door entry and intercom systems. For a school, Paxton is a good choice because they offer quality equipment at an affordable price.

    Videx and Lanel offer quality, premium intercom systems.

    Lastly, Hikvision has a range of intercom systems which we would recommend if budgets are really tight.


    Yes absolutely, our installers are all DBS checked.
