10 things to know to get started with Classroom If you’re a teacher testing various digital tools for your distance learning program, this is a good time to try Google Classroom


As students spend the majority of the day in schools, campus security is of paramount importance to every school administrator and every parent. In order to develop an effective security system, all the possible risks – including suspects breaking into campus, stealing, and threatening student safety – must be fully considered.

A school security and protection solution utilizing Hikvision’s most advanced network, audio, video, and intelligent recognition technologies, ensures students, parents, and staff can enjoy a secured and serene learning environment.


Perimeter Protection

It is equally important to secure and check on campus perimeter no matter it is a closed or open campus. Hikvision offers different solutions to suit different installation and situation requirements.

For schools that wish to adapt a more traditional non-visual security system, we offer our alarm solution with abundant sensors to choose from. If later on you wish to extend the system to a visual one, you may add to it the PIR system, which helps accurately identify and react to and only to intruders – a cat wandering into campus is obviously considered cute! Similarly, you may also choose the IP-based DeepinView camera and DeepinMind NVR for false alarm reduction purpose. Thermal alarm system can also be used in areas that requires excellent environmental suitability and ultra detection. Choose any of our perimeter solution to build a reliable and agile security system.


Public Area Protection

To better protect the safety of students and staff and prevent property loss, it is necessary to watch what’s happening in common areas especially key public areas in educational environments. With our PanoVu series cameras, you can get a comprehensive view of the real-time image of school gates, dormitory gates, school roads, buildings, checkpoints and more. In public areas like canteens, libraries and buildings, our intelligent video surveillance solution helps detect non-staff and suspects in the blacklist, and is a powerful tool to search people under urgent circumstances. It is also a good idea to apply the solution in stairways, where there might be large flow of students occasionally.


Access Control Management

For open campuses, a lot of external people will enter the campus, which brings bigger security risks. An added face recognition function on the conventional video surveillance system helps to raise security level, which supports real-time alarm of unwanted people. For students and staff, their information will be registered in the system and access control permissions will be assigned accordingly. For visitors, Hikvision’s visitor management system will help make reservation and registration very convenient.


Vehicle Management

Vehicle management is also of top priority for keeping a safe campus in today’s society. Different strategies should be adopted while dealing with internal vehicles like school buses and temporary vehicles like parents’ vehicles and other vehicles. At the school gates, our parking lot management system and radar-triggered capture camera can be installed for license plates recognition. To enhance security, vehicle checkpoints can be deployed at arterial roads to detect and record the speed of passing vehicles, and give out alarm on unregistered vehicles.


Attendance Check

Intelligent attendance check tools play an important role in keeping students’ safety. With our school bus attendance solution, students' attendance will be recorded when they hop on and off the bus, and SMS notifications will be automatically sent to their parents. You can also choose to deploy access control terminals to check students’ and staff’s attendance at school gates and dormitory gates, which on the one hand will greatly enhance management efficiency and on the other hand easily spot problems at the very beginning.Hikvision logo colour
