Peninsula Grammar School Security: Project Brief
The Security Brief provided to Eclipse Security Systems for the upgrade of School Security would be flexible and scalable. Providing, Principal, Teachers, Students and Parents peace of mind that the Education Facility is a safe & secure environment.
The Facility has multiple buildings spread across a large site. The requirements would include Intrusion Detection Alarms covering all buildings which integrates with an Access Control Solution. The Access Control System would have the ability to check doors and set a time to auto-lock all external door when there is no one on site. Emergency Lockdown capability was also an important feature with around 150 internal, external classroom doors and specified areas to be controlled. The integrated School Security Solution would be easy to manage from a central and remote location (Off Site) and provide activity reports when required.
