Wireless Video Surveillance: A Capital Idea

Wireless Video Surveillance: A Capital Idea
by Art Gissendaner

While the consensus in the student transportation industry is that wireless is the future of school bus video surveillance, experts say the interest in wireless systems is increasing faster than the capital school districts need to buy them. They also caution transportation officials to be sure of their needs before shopping for a surveillance system, and to never leave home without their information technology (IT) specialist.

Commenting on this article in Student Transportation News, 247Security’s Robert Scott, V.P. Sales and Marketing stated,

"This is a great article in STN bringing the reality of wireless video management in school busing to the forefront. As our customers in Sumpter, FL and Washoe, NV confirm, 247Security wireless solution TouchDown™ is the next level of video management bringing video and GPS together right at your office desk. It is a time and money saver, the next generation of video management. If we take exception with anything in the article it is that we believe wireless fits in all school bus operations, regardless of size. It is an obvious benefit in large operations, but my experience is that managers and their staffs, in small operations, are very busy people wearing many hats! Anything that saves time and money fits!

If we can offer any advice when looking at wireless options, it’s ask a lot of questions. Can the system talk with many vehicles at once? Can it actually download video files, how long does that take? Can the system operate, downloading data long after the buses are shut down for the night. Best approach is to get a live demonstration!

TouchDown™ is in operation in many districts across the country and we will be happy to describe, in detail, all that it can do for you."
