Industry note · Education EDUCATION_IN1EN Centralized multi-site monitoring Monitor all your schools from one location using the Security Center Federation™ feature. You can view reports and manage door events across all your schools to streamline district security from one central head-end. Effective threat management Using threat level management, you can react to changing security conditions at a moment's notice. With a press of a button, you're able to quickly lockdown or unlock zones or entire buildings. The behavior of your system will adapt in response to the threat level, providing only the tools and procedures you need to handle the situation. Easy cardholder maintenance Save time and eliminate errors by integrating Synergis with Microsoft Active Directory. This allows you to synchronize your Windows user accounts with your user and cardholder accounts. Should staff leave or retire, one click will de-activate their building access rights and system privileges. Capabilities that help you reach your security goals To learn more about how Genetec solutions help keep K-12 schools safe, visit genetec.com/solutions/industries/education Efficient door schedules Program your system to lock and unlock specific doors according to school schedules. This allows staff and students to freely enter and exit the building during regular school opening and closing hours, while doors stay locked during the day. It also frees up busy hall monitors and administrative staff for other tasks since they no longer have to manually secure all school doors. Convenient teacher privileges During the school day, teachers, can initiate 'Supervisor Mode' by double tapping their card to a reader. This will unlock the door so students can enter or exit an area or room. They can then double tap the card again to lock the door. Streamlined visitor management Use a built-in visitor management module to easily assign credentials to guests or contractors. You can also use Synergis to extend the visitor management functionality to scan driver's licenses for quick checks against national databases. © 2024 Genetec, Inc. All rights reserved.
