Orange Public Schools Enhances Safety With Video Surveillance



Orange Public Schools in Orange, NJ partnered with Arctiq (formerly DynTek) to enhance safety with video surveillance. With Cisco Meraki's cloud-based technology, they achieved real-time monitoring, remote access, and intelligent analytics. The strategically placed cameras improved security coverage, and staff training empowered effective system management. The cost-effective solution fostered trust within the community, ensuring a safe learning environment for over 5000 students.

Arctiq’s dedicated team successfully executed a comprehensive surveillance project for Orange Public Schools in Orange, NJ. Driven by the district’s commitment to ensuring a safe and secure learning environment, the project involved the installation of more than 820 cameras. Through meticulous coordination, strategic camera placement, staff training, and system optimization, Arctiq delivered a robust surveillance solution that enhances security and monitoring capabilities within the school district.

Orange Public Schools operates 12 schools servicing over 5000 students in Orange, NJ. The school district’s top priority was to create a safe and secure environment for students, teachers, and staff members. The district lacked a centralized surveillance system, leading to blind spots and inadequate coverage in critical areas. The district engaged their trusted technology partner, Arctiq, to architect a comprehensive video surveillance solution that would provide real-time monitoring, intelligent features, remote access, and streamlined management capabilities.

Advanced Cloud-Based Video Surveillance Solutions for Enhanced Campus Security

After careful evaluation, Orange Public Schools opted for Cisco Meraki’s video surveillance solutions, known for their advanced technology, cloud-based architecture, and user-friendly interface. Meraki cameras are advanced cloud managed surveillance solutions that offer high-definition video quality, wide coverage, remote monitoring, and intelligent analytics. In addition, Meraki’s cloud-based architecture allowed for centralized management and remote access to live and recorded video footage. Administrators and security personnel could monitor the campus from any device with an Internet connection, ensuring real-time situational awareness.

Comprehensive Camera Installation and Integration for Enhanced Security Coverage and Incident Management

Arctiq’s experienced team meticulously managed the installation process, overseeing cabling contractors and strategically orienting the more than 820 cameras to ensure comprehensive coverage. The placement of cameras considered critical areas such as entrances, hallways, parking lots, and other high-traffic locations. This strategic approach provided enhanced monitoring capabilities, minimizing blind spots, and ensuring maximum security coverage within the school district.

The video surveillance system utilized motion detection capabilities to identify and trigger alerts for suspicious activities. This enabled swift response and effective incident management, reducing potential security threats.

Arctiq’s expertise extended to optimizing the configuration of the Meraki camera system, ensuring seamless integration with the district’s existing infrastructure and network. This integration provided a comprehensive security framework and facilitated efficient collaboration between different systems. Additionally, Arctiq conducted thorough staff training sessions, equipping school administrators and security personnel with the necessary skills to utilize and manage the camera system effectively. The training emphasized proper monitoring techniques, incident response protocols, and video retrieval procedures, empowering staff members to leverage the surveillance system to its fullest potential.

Streamlined Operations, Cost-Effectiveness, and Transparent Security Measures

The surveillance system empowers administrators, security personnel, and law enforcement agencies to promptly identify, investigate, and resolve security incidents. This proactive approach contributes to a more secure educational environment. In addition, the presence of visible surveillance cameras acts as a deterrent, discouraging acts of bullying, vandalism, and other disruptive behaviors.

The user-friendly interface and cloud-based management simplified day-to-day operations. School administrators can easily configure camera settings, access live footage, and review recordings from a single, centralized platform.

By eliminating the need for on-site servers and complex infrastructure, Meraki’s cloud-based solution reduced both upfront and ongoing maintenance costs, providing a cost-effective security solution for the school district.

By investing in advanced surveillance technology, Orange Public Schools is instilling confidence in parents, guardians, and the wider community. Transparent and effective security measures demonstrate the district’s commitment to the well-being of students and staff, fostering trust and support.
