School security remains top priority

New cameras and software will help make our schools safer

Safety and security has always been a focus for our district. As one of the first districts in the state to implement locked door camera entry to our schools, we are always looking for ways to improve and innovate when it comes to keeping students and staff safe.

This fall we will begin replacing our current security camera system with a brand new software from ExacqVision. A number of schools have been piloting the new software, and staff are now preparing for the district-wide rollout.

This new software features improved picture quality, interface, and search functionality, as well as support for mobile devices and Mac compatibility.

Senior Systems Engineer Patrick Emerick said the software update will be followed with camera replacements.

“We have plans to replace most of the older style cameras across the district and completely overhaul the cameras at six other sites,” he said.

The district will also be replacing the underlying storage in the data center with something more capable of handling the new system and cameras.

Helping kids learn is the driving force behind all we do in the Bethel School District.
