Free Software Program from Vicon Encourages School Security Surveillance

Vicon Industries Inc., a designer and producer of network video management systems, today introduced a program that actively supports school safety by encouraging schools to share access to their surveillance systems with local law enforcement. Effective immediately, Vicon will provide free ViconNet video management software licenses to the local police or law enforcement agency responsible for securing any K-12 district or preschool facility that purchases a new ViconNet video management system. Schools that take advantage of this offer will benefit from law enforcement’s ability to view live and recorded video instantly as emergencies unfold, being able to plan smarter interventions when necessary.

ViconNet offers flexible viewing options for stations and squad cars, including the ability to view surveillance video and control cameras using the Vicon Mobile app (available April 2013). School administrators have the ability to set law enforcement’s permissions and access levels to the system, as deemed appropriate. Hundreds of districts across the U.S. and Canada already rely on ViconNet video management systems to protect their facilities.

“There is a clear, security benefit to school districts when the local police are able to keep an extra eye on what’s happening whether it’s in real time, during an emergency or in viewing recorded video after an event that requires forensic investigation. Vicon is pleased to help make this ‘best practice’ possible for more of our K-12 and preschool customers by underwriting the cost for law enforcement to obtain the necessary software,” explained Bret McGowan, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Vicon.
