Elizabeth Garrett Anderson is a school where the students enjoy their learning, where they are encouraged to take responsibility and where their particular abilities are nurtured to ensure the highest possible achievement. Reflecting the many communities of the area, this is a great strength of the school and it is important for London to have schools like Elizabeth Garrett Anderson where young people can learn and work together.
When a new building was constructed and the school moved to new premises in 2012, a fresh contemporary security system was needed to meet with the demanding requirements of a modern busy school environment - Sensor was able to offer this.
A GuardPoint Pro system was designed to fit the requirements. A GuardPoint Pro system was installed using a combination of IC-2000 and IC-4000 controllers along with Mifare readers. The Mifare cards have also been utilised for the cashless catering within the school meaning students are only required to carry one card. The GuardPoint Pro System has been designed to ensure it can grow and expand as needs change and grow within the school. Running on the schools IT network and existing infrastructure has meant minimal disruption and a cost effective installation for the school.
Using Mifare cards on the system has allowed these cards to be used for other applications including cashless vending, meaning students are only required to carry one card.
Moving to the new premises, GuardPoint Pro has been a great addition to the building - staff time spent on security has been greatly minimised through automation of many of the systems that would have once required staff supervision.
