Campus safety professionals continue to struggle with funding key technologies required to simultaneously deliver student safety, support emergency preparedness and comply with government standards. The security budget can however be maximized by implementing strategies that enable integration of systems that can provide the ability to view more of the campus while utilizing fewer cameras. This means less investment and greater utility of existing infrastructure.
