Administrators are constantly seeking ways to cost-effectively and adequately increase security and improve efficiency in K-12 schools. While video is not a new tool to schools, the shift from analog to network technology has increased the accessibility and usability in a variety of applications. Properly installed and used, video is a powerful tool for schools that can help advance security, risk management and operations in K-12 schools. This article will explore some of the uses and benefits of video in schools, covering traditional security as well as innovative uses. We will then consider best practices for ensuring the successful implementation of network video in schools including: (1) Invest in network technology, (2) Make it a team effort, (3) Plan in advance, (4) Cover key areas, (5) Select the right equipment, and (6) Leverage video with other systems. By understanding the technology and exploring some of the potential uses for video in an educational setting, administrators can reap benefits from video in security applications and beyond.
