Cameras on school buses raise privacy concerns
Schools and bus companies need to have common policies

A growing number of Canadian school boards are placing surveillance cameras aboard the buses that transport children to and from their facilities, but privacy advocates are urging caution when it comes to filming minors.

Managing the whole project, not just the install
Knowing how to guide an installation from creation to completion is critical

With security system projects becoming increasingly complex, it’s tough to find project managers with the appropriate technical knowledge and management background to ensure everything is delivered on time, on budget and without a hitch. Part of the problem stems from the fact that, unlike other industries such as construction and software development, the security industry has not yet embraced project management as the structured discipline it is known for in other sectors such as information technology.

Applying analytics
Sonitrol rolls out video analytics technology to remote customers

Forty-five years ago Sonitrol was founded by a police officer that felt there had to be a better way to monitor a business and reduce the number of false alarms. He thought motion detection systems were the weak link in the alarm industry and developed the first sound-based alarm system.

Today, Sonitrol’s audio detection technology has become the choice of large retail customers such as Canadian Tire, as well as school boards and manufacturing facilities. But over the years intelligent remote surveillance has remained an area that called for improved technology.
