FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- S2 Security (http://www.s2sys.com/), manufacturer of the S2 NetBox and S2 Enterprise integrated IP-based physical security systems, today announced the addition of 25 new school customers in June and July 2009 to its growing roster of education users.
To date, several hundred primary schools, secondary schools, post-secondary schools and school districts across the United States have chosen to deploy S2's physical security systems to protect students, faculty and staff. Education institutions choose to deploy S2's powerful integrated security management systems because they are a future-proof investment, are cost-effective to install and maintain, and can scale to meet the needs of facilities and campuses of any size.
Schools that have recently selected and/or deployed S2 systems include Plainfield School District in Plainfield, Indiana, a community which is seeing tremendous population growth. According to John Crum, vice principal of Plainfield High School, the decision to deploy an IP-based access control system was community driven.
"With the S2 security system in place, should the unthinkable happen, we are now able to lock down the entire school at a moment's notice," said Crum. "Schools are always looking to increase security. At the same time, we are accountable for how we spend public dollars. S2's system architecture reduces the cost of installation and management of the system. Our growing community now has a manageable access control system that ensures students and staff are safe while they learn, work and play."
S2 Security's S2 NetBox and S2 Enterprise products are advanced network appliances that implement integrated physical security for facilities and campuses of any scale. S2's unique line of open architecture, scalable, IP network-ready products for the physical security industry integrate access control, alarm monitoring, video surveillance, and temperature monitoring.
The S2 solution offers flexibility, scalability, and is easily installed without the need to run hard wire. Common to all S2 products is their 100% web-based user interface. Users require nothing more than a common web browser to use even the largest S2 security system.
