Educational centers (schools, universities, campuses) are like small cities: every day, hundreds of teachers, lecturers, pupils, students, and visitors use buildings located within educational institutions and the surrounding infrastructure.
In order to be able to increase the safety and effectiveness of educational facilities, C&C Partners, on the basis of many years of experience, has adapted its solutions to their specificity, taking into account the applicable regulations. The offered systems support the work and increase the safety in the teaching environment for staff, pupils, and students. It provides protection and functionality of educational facilities while optimizing the costs associated with their management.
We can implement them as a single solution or as an integrated security and communication management system in educational facilities, guaranteeing possible modular expansion and open interfaces to other devices operating on the campus. This approach guarantees investment security and the possibility for its expansion over time.
We offer a wide range of technological solutions that allow meeting the challenges such as:
- Integration of the university database with the database of security systems
- Electronic class attendance list Integration of employee cards with a keys depository
- Booking classrooms by teachers
- Minimizing the movement of unauthorized people on the premises
- Management of parking spaces for staff and students (booking parking spaces using the application)
The safety of educational facilities is accomplished by:
- Access control system
- Intercom communication system
- Monitoring and video management system
- Intrusion detection system
- Parking management system
Monitoring and managing these systems, as well as the fire detection system installed in buildings, is extremely easy and accomplished by using the PSIM + physical security management software. That saves costs and reduces the workload.
Security in educational facilities includes control of people admitted to the facility or its separate parts. Limited access to buildings, administrative rooms, laboratories, and lecture halls ensures constant monitoring of the flow of people within the university, and organization of the access to physical keys. The advantages of the access control system for education include such functionalities as an integration of a student ID card as a proximity access card and flexible expansion of the access control system with additional rooms or buildings. A perfect complement to the access control system is the option of complex guest service by the function of pre-preparation of access cards to conference or training participants, booking an appropriate number of parking spaces, and monitoring the movement of guests around the facility.
A large number of people in the building requires efficient communication and providing safety and comfort of work. C&C Partners has developed an intercom and radio communication system that ensures reliable transmission of information in sensitive university locations, such as campus entrances, buildings, selected rooms, and car parks. Another advantage of the system is the ability to broadcast group and individual messages, playing music, or other audio content. The option of communication with help and information points on the campus was also developed, along with a call system in toilets for disabled people. Both wall-mounted and desktop intercom stations can be adjusted to individual needs.
The system that is responsible for the security of a given facility is the intrusion detection system. It enables the signaling of unauthorized entry to the university's facilities. Another functionality is the automatic arming and disarming of security zones based on the planned schedule. Information about the alarm is sent to the security services of the university or an external company. The entire system is managed from the level of visualization, keypads, or access control readers. As a result, the detectors and designated zones' status, along with their changes, are visualized in the supervision center.
Advanced building systems for the education sector offered by C&C Partners also include monitoring of environmental conditions in special rooms, such as laboratories and server rooms. The solution supports a wide range of gauges, including temperature, humidity, or flooding. The system also allows you to generate alarms in the case of critical conditions, e. g. too high temperature. The system allows automatic control of elements of other systems (e. g. switching on of fans). Moreover, the offer of C&C Partners includes solutions that allow reading and visualizing of weather conditions such as the temperature outside the university buildings, reading the thickness of snow cover on the roof, etc. There is also an option to control building elements (e. g.: windows and doors).
The comprehensive offer of C&C Partners includes a solution in the area of parking management. It provides control over access to the university car park for individual groups (lecturers, students, etc.) and provides an appropriate number of places for disabled people. Access control in the car park is based on long-range readers or license plate analysis. Finally, communication with the concierge/reception desk is possible via the intercom system.
Comprehensive facility management also includes automation control. In this area, C&C Partners solutions enable management over power and automation in classrooms, from the level of access control readers. By using the implemented system, it is possible to control entrance barriers, gates, and elevators. Everything is done from the level of visualization or proximity card readers.
As part of the integration with third-party systems, C&C Partners provides integration with elevator systems, fire alarm systems, key-management systems, and environmental conditions monitoring systems. Thanks to the wide integration possibilities of C&C Partners solutions, it is possible to effectively record and supervise the working time of employees. Wide integration possibilities allow keeping working time records. The record of working time of employees, divided into specific groups, supports organizing special activities, such as private visits, medical appointments, etc. The C&C Partners solution also has an advanced reporting system and the option of integration with HR and payroll systems used by universities.
The WinGuard X4 system is a PSIM + class software used to manage security processes in educational facilities. It allows you to control all university security systems from one supervision center. Thanks to technological openness, it has the ability to integrate with the security systems used so far, as well as with industrial systems, building automation, communication, or with the university database.
Thanks to system integration, e. g. a person removed from the list of students or a former employee automatically lose access to all resources and sensitive places within the facility. Extensive tools provide the appropriate reporting of events, relevant information about the resources, and performance of individual systems. Adequate management of the accumulated knowledge translates into the possibility of optimal management of many facilities and ordering the procedures applicable in a given facility, which results in cost optimization.
A perfect complement to the above solution is external facility management (SecASS), which allows you to manage the security of scattered university facilities (including out-of-town departments) from one place. The solution enables receiving alarm information from various locations and optimizes the procedures of alarm actions. Meanwhile, the full security of the transmitted data is maintained by advanced encryption protocols.
