VUANCE Inc. recently announced that it has been awarded a $1.4 million contract from the Racine (Wisc.) Unified School District to install its MASC (Managed Automated Security Controls) security solution into 31 schools and two administrative buildings in the district. The school district is contemplating additional buildings with the potential to expand the initial project.

VUANCE’s MASC solution offers scalable, integrated solutions for commercial enterprises for controlling access, detecting intrusions and providing alarm monitoring, intercom, video surveillance, DVR system, photo ID badges, Programmable Logic Controllers, with touch-screen convenience in a single seamless software package. The system provides for remote video viewing of alarm events via PDAs, and enables local authorities to view alarm video from police vehicles. This system integrates and augments security technology already in place within the school district. MASC is capable of incorporating smart cards which meet NIMS/ICS specifications.

Under terms of the contract, VUANCE will install security systems that provide card access to the Racine Unified Schools for staff as well as cameras to monitor school entrances and card readers on doors normally used by staff and students during the day. Cards will also function as staff IDs. The plan also calls for installing video phones at the main entrance to enable visitors to gain access to the school during the day while maintaining security and protecting students.
