At Security Systems of America (SSA), we prioritize the safety and security of educational institutions. As trusted security partners in Pittsburgh and the tri-state area for over 40 years, we understand that schools and universities are not just buildings, but places of learning, growth, and community. With our comprehensive security system solutions tailored specifically for educational properties, we ensure the protection of students, faculty, and staff.
Our security systems include a range of advanced solutions designed to meet the unique needs of educational institutions. These include solutions such as access control systems to regulate who can enter certain areas as well as handle lockdowns, video surveillance systems that provide real-time monitoring and recording capabilities, and emergency response systems that can quickly alert authorities in the event of an incident. Our expertise lies in creating integrated security systems that bring together fire alarms, video surveillance, access control, and more. Some of our solutions include:
In today’s unpredictable world, having an efficient and effective emergency lockdown system in place is not just a necessity, it’s a responsibility. Our advanced lockdown solutions are designed to protect school buildings during any crisis situation, including active shooter scenarios. With just the push of a button, our security system can initiate immediate lockdown procedures, securing all doors and alerting the necessary authorities. We work closely with school administrators to develop a safe and practical plan that can seamlessly integrate into existing lockdown and emergency protocols. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, we ensure that our services not only provide an immediate response to threats but also act as a deterrent, creating safer learning environments.
We provide a comprehensive suite of fire alarm system services specifically designed for educational institutions. This includes installation, maintenance, and monitoring of fire alarm systems. With our expert installation services, we ensure that every corner of your institution is covered. The maintenance service includes regular checks and repairs to guarantee the system’s optimal operation at all times. Our 24/7 monitoring service provides an extra layer of protection, ensuring that any fire alarm is immediately addressed, minimizing the response time and potentially saving lives.
Our video surveillance systems offer a robust security measure for schools and educational institutions. The continuous 24/7 monitoring capability ensures that every moment is captured, providing visual evidence in case of incidents. Our high-quality cameras deliver clear and detailed footage, even in low-light conditions. They can be strategically placed in various locations around the campus, including entrances, hallways, parking lots, and playgrounds, offering a comprehensive view of the entire property.
The systems can be accessed remotely, offering administrators and security teams the ability to monitor the school premises in real-time from anywhere, enhancing the response time in case of emergencies. Moreover, the presence of surveillance cameras often serves as a deterrent for potential intruders or misbehavior, contributing to a safer and more secure learning environment.
Our intrusion detection systems are meticulously designed to identify and alert to any unauthorized access or potential security breaches in your educational institution. Utilizing cutting-edge technology, our systems include door and window sensors, motion detectors, and glass break sensors, all working in synergy to detect any signs of intrusion. The moment an intrusion attempt is detected, an alarm is triggered, and a signal is sent to our dedicated monitoring center. This ensures a swift response, with the relevant authorities alerted immediately, mitigating potential risks and damage.
Our access control solutions at SSA are designed to offer maximum security for educational institutions. These systems are not just about securing the premises but also about managing and controlling the flow of people within the institution. Our state-of-the-art access control solutions provide a seamless, scalable, and fully integrated system that can be customized to suit your unique security requirements.
Our advanced card reader systems provide an additional level of security. Authorized individuals are issued cards that grant access to designated areas. These systems not only restrict unauthorized access but also log each entry and exit, giving you a detailed record of individuals’ movements within your institution. We also offer features such as biometric scanners for enhanced security. These scanners can detect and verify individuals based on unique biological traits such as fingerprints or facial features, making unauthorized access almost impossible.
