Schools, Colleges and Universities

Panther Security has been trading for over 30 years and has gained considerable experience in the design, installation and maintenance of security systems for schools, private schools, colleges and universities. Our areas of expertise include Intruder Alarms, CCTV, Access Control and Audio/Video Intercoms.

We are currently maintaining security systems for over 100 separate educational establishments across East Anglia, North and East London. Our largest school project to date is based in London.  We have installed and continue to maintain over 200 Cameras, in excess of 60 Access Control points as well as Intruder Alarms.

Whilst schools continue to be amongst the safest places to be, no school can afford to ignore the risk and impact of having to deal with a range of security related issues. School security is unique in several ways and serves not only to keep unwanted visitors out, but to also ensure the personal safety of staff, pupils and visitors. Different schools will experience different security needs but overall their requirements will be similar as common issues affect all education establishments.

CCTV Systems

High definition CCTV provides a visible deterrent, reducing the likelihood of criminal activity and safeguarding the health and safety of pupils, staff and visitors. The main areas for coverage are the boundaries, entrances, IT suites, offices, locations with little natural surveillance and circulation areas, both inside and out. It is essential to have clear images across your school to protect the children, staff, buildings and contents. We will install software enabling you to monitor your CCTV system via any smartphone, tablet or workstation.

Intruder Alarms with Full App Control

Our intruder alarm systems come with full App control allowing the estates team / site manager to know what is going on within the school at any time, from anywhere. The App will receive notifications from the alarm when it’s turned on or off and when the system goes into alert or full alarm, identifying the device that has been triggered.

Monitored Alarm – A monitored alarm is essential for school buildings, especially those that are remote from residential areas. It is advisable that any alarm is monitored by an NSI approved alarm receiving centre with the ability to initiate a response to any security breach by informing the Police.

Access Control and Intercoms

access control

Access control offers a secure, convenient, flexible and cost-effective way of controlling who has access to your building and when that access is allowed. Whilst protecting your assets, staff and pupils, the flexibility of access control allows people to move freely and safely in the areas that they need to. Visitors to the school should not be allowed to wander about unaccompanied. Good access control is essential in keeping unwanted visitors out and safeguarding pupils and staff inside the building(s) during the school day.

There are various types of Access Control to consider including access via a fob controlled handle or a fob reader. We are able to offer a basic fob system to a PC based system utilising the employees Mifare cards, allowing access to key rooms around the school.

Audio and Video Intercoms – We offer a range of intercom systems for use in different environments. All types of schools can benefit from the privacy and security they offer as well as the flexibility of being able to control access remotely.
