Axis Communications - Oconto Unified School District

The Oconto Unified School District is comprised of the city of Oconto and four adjacent Wisconsin townships. It consists of three educational institutions: a high school, an elementary school, and a middle school. In 2008, Oconto’s Board of Education revised its security policy. As a result, the school district’s officials needed to find an integrated surveillance system that would improve the safety of students, visitors, employees, and volunteers. Specifically, they wanted a solution that would allow schools to identify visitors and control door locks remotely.

Solution: The Oconto Unified School District is comprised of the city of Oconto and four adjacent Wisconsin townships. It consists of three educational institutions: a high school, an elementary school, and a middle school. The district covers an area of just over 100 square miles, but the number of individuals served by the school district is less than 5,000.

 

In 2008, Oconto's Board of Education revised its security policy. As a result, the school district's officials needed to find an integrated surveillance system that would improve the safety of students, visitors, employees, and volunteers. Specifically, they wanted a solution that would allow schools to identify visitors and control door locks remotely.

 

Officials of the Oconto Unified School District decided to enlist the services of LaForce Inc., an Axis Communications partner and a top Green Bay distributor of security hardware. This Axis partner recommended Aiphone AX-DV audio/video door entry systems. These entry systems interface with Axis video encoders, allowing the video stream from each door to be viewed by authorized personnel using the school’s Internet connection. They also allow for two-way audio communication with individuals seeking entry into buildings. Once a staff member has identified a visitor, he or she can unlock the door remotely to permit entry. 

 

One of the major benefits of the new security systems is their affordability. The features of these systems are normally associated with those that have a much higher price tag, so the school district’s choice has lessened the burden on tax payers. The new systems also meet the Board of Education’s updated security policy. Most importantly, preventing unauthorized access has enhanced the safety of students and staff at all three schools.
