We Can Help

No one knows better than educators that schools and universities have become increasingly vulnerable to crime and violence. A school is three times more likely to be burglarized than a business, and vandalism costs schools more than $1 billion a year. Safety concerns take up significant time and attention. Our experts can help you.

Access Control

Controlling and monitoring traffic into buildings and sensitive areas is critical to school security. Sonitrol Pacific's Access Control systems allow educators and administrators to limit access to designated areas or throughout facilities by time of day, employee, or other criteria and can report all activity in protected areas by individual to deliver a vital management tool.

Audio Detection Security

Vandals, trespassers and thieves can't hide from Sonitrol Pacific. Our unique audio detection approach provides comprehensive coverage and detects attempted break-ins through ceilings, walls, doors and windows. The moment questionable sounds are detected, the system will alert a Sonitrol Pacific Operator in our Everett, Verification Center®. Our highly trained sound analysts determine the nature of the threat and contact the appropriate authorities.

**By Shawn Benefiel, School & Government Agency Security Specialist**

In today’s educational environment, it is imperative for schools to know who is in their building and why. Having multiple open doors at a school facility with no recourse in the event of an incident is a risky proposition for students, staff, and parents. It is critical to have a comprehensive school security system that funnels all entering traffic through check points where a person is present and sign-in required. While signage is great, it will simply not deter someone from taking an incorrect path if a door is unlocked, whether their intent is good or bad.

Sonitrol Pacific’s managed entry systems can be a great asset in making this type of plan a reality with electronically controlled doors that make hard-key or accidentally unlocked doors a thing of the past. Access controlled doors also offer a way to track and monitor all entries into the building during off hours, as well as schedule times for doors to lock or unlock automatically for scheduled events. What this means to our clients is no more paying over-time for someone to manually lock and unlock doors, who may ultimately leave your building unsecured in the end. 

Another important benefit of access controlled doors for schools is the “lock down.” If a reported criminal or criminal event is in your area, Sonitrol Pacific can offer you the ability to lock your school down instantly and keep the bad guys or bad happenings away from your most precious assets…the children!
