    Protect your staff and pupils

    When working in an environment with children it is critical that the highest levels of security are maintained at all times. Whether an aggravated parent or unwelcome visitor is trespassing on the premises, or an unruly and aggressive child is endangering themselves and others, our robust solutions ensure that everyone is protected from potential harm.

    SECOM’s Smart Guarding range allows you to remove staff and students from escalating encounters. By replacing manned security with intelligent alternatives, your institution can engage and deal with hostile situations without staff ever needing to be directly involved. From disruptive behaviour to violent conduct, our smart solutions monitor events in real-time and enable teachers to discreetly alert SECOM experts and authorities that they require support.

    Protect your property

    With SECOM's Smart Guarding solution you can protect your premises from vandalism and unwanted visitors even outside of operating hours. Our advanced CCTV Cameras use HDR and night vision lenses so they are capable of capturing images and footage in dim lighting.

    Utilising powerful video analytics software we can also detect the moment someone crosses over the perimeter of your building. Our Virtual Guard system intuitively reports the culprits and will relay the suspicious activity back to you instantly. SECOM investigators continuously profile any repeat offenders and if necessary can liaise directly with local police to take action and prevent further incidents.
