Safeguarding the future with Valerus as the district-wide VMS solution
District officials, including Chris Wynn, the Director of Security for the district, recognized the need to upgrade their previous video surveillance system to better protect staff and students. They were looking for a solution that was simple and intuitive for a wide variety of users. Upgrades to their surveillance system were needed to allow centralized and better remote monitoring throughout the district. Centrally securing 28 buildings over 750 square miles was no easy feat, but it was of utmost importance to the district’s security department.
"Since we’ve installed the system, TSA violations through unsecured doors have gone to zero. Our use of video analytics for back flow prevention is really an incredible use of technology.”
- Mike Supkis, Police and Fire Chief
"Vicon gives us peace of mind that Teddy Roosevelt’s treasures will be protected and preserved for future generations.”
- Susan Sarna, Museum Curator and Director of Security
"The networkability of the Vicon system has put us in total control of what we want to do.”
- Steven Cox, Head of Security
"Dow Jones was impressed with the product and the quality, but the key for them was Vicon’s history of international support. No one else could match it.”

"Among the 15 different IP camera models, our committee felt the IQeye was the best camera for the cost, but it also had the best image quality overall.”

All 28 schools are now monitored through Vicon’s Valerus VMS, a centralized system that effectively and reliably ensures a safe learning environment for everyone. The Valerus solution allows the district to centrally manage surveillance from any location while giving administrators at each building visibility into all school activity. After implementing Valerus, the feature Chris finds most useful is the ability to export video with preview markers, as it is a big part of what he does.
