A newly released guide from IDIS explores the role of video security in reducing risks in the education sector and creating safer, more welcoming learning environments. This latest sector-focused eBook from the South Korean video manufacturer – Optimal Use of Video Systems for K-12 School Security – is written to provide in-depth insights for school administrators and senior teams, education sector security planners and systems integrators.

The guide examines issues of cost and affordability and explores strategies for building multi-layered protection from perimeters and sports grounds to classrooms, to better protect staff and students through earlier detection of risks and faster interventions.

When it comes to school safety, there’s no question that video systems have an important part to play – if they are designed, deployed and operated effectively. IDIS highlights key factors that will contribute to the successful deployment and use of surveillance solutions. Used well, video can act as a force-multiplier and increase operational efficiency by making other measures more effective. This eBook serves as a practical starting point and reference source and can be downloaded with no requirement to provide personal details. It covers key planning considerations and requirements for implementing effective school security surveillance solutions, including: challenges in perspective; layered approaches to security; district-wide resilience; camera siting and uses, including parking lots, playgrounds and internal locations; compliance and federal funding; cybersecurity; and ensuring value for stakeholders.

The IDIS Education eBook can be downloaded here as well as accessed on the IDIS website which now hosts several informative eBooks to support security technology decision makers. For more information on IDIS solutions, please visit
