Protecting Schools & Sport Fields: Video Security Intrusion Detection


Football Field at School Yard

The need for reliable, automated intruder detection for schools and sports fields has never been higher. School facilities represent a compelling target for theft and vandalism, and their compromise can be costly. Unprotected fields pose liability risks should unauthorized intruders use equipment without supervision, while damage to running tracks and football fields can run you into millions of dollars to handle repairs.

Other areas of the school, such as rooftops, are vulnerable access points that need 24/7 protection to prevent calamities. And any outdoor area around the school lacking visibility can be utilized for assaults or other illicit activity, like drug deals.

In reality, even a single undetected trespass can cause a school to incur significant costs, expensive litigation, or even casualties.

Industry Challenges

Due to the large areas, poor lighting, and unique characteristics, school and sports field security can be challenging. People responsible for protecting schools and sports field perimeters are often concerned about:

  • Detecting intruders with impeccable reliability, under all conditions
  • Safeguarding students on site during school and practice hours
  • Protecting sporting equipment and fields from vandalism & theft
  • Liability of injury by both authorized and unauthorized persons
  • Ease and cost of monitoring fields, unlit areas, and large perimeters, at all times

Even with these challenges, SightLogix solutions offer an adaptable, flexible and effective school and sport field intrusion solution to reduce the risks.
