American International University-Bangladesh (AIUB) sought to improve the safety and security of its campus for students, faculty, and staff. To achieve this, AIUB collaborated with Beyond Innovations & Technologies, a leading provider of advanced technology solutions, to deploy 1000 IP cameras and an integrated security system across the campus. This case study examines the critical components of the security solution and its impact on overall campus safety.
Deployment Year: 2017
Location: Dhaka, Bangladesh
Beyond Innovations & Technologies worked closely with AIUB to develop a comprehensive security solution tailored to the university’s needs. This included the installation of 1000 high-resolution IP cameras, integrated access control systems, and intrusion detection systems. The objective was to create a secure environment to deter unauthorized access, prevent theft, and enhance overall campus safety.
- High-Resolution IP Cameras: Strategically placed throughout the campus, the IP cameras provide coverage of critical areas, including entrances, exits, classrooms, labs, libraries, and shared spaces. The high-resolution cameras ensured clear images for easy identification of individuals and activities and remote monitoring capabilities for campus security personnel.
- Integrated Access Control System: The access control system helped regulate entry to restricted areas, such as labs and administrative offices. Using card readers, biometric scanners, and user credentials, the system effectively controlled access to sensitive areas, reducing the risk of unauthorized entry and enhancing overall security.
- Intrusion Detection System: This system detected unauthorized access attempts and triggered alarms to alert security personnel. The intrusion detection system is integrated with the IP cameras and access control system, enabling rapid response to potential security threats.
- Centralized Monitoring and Control: A centralized monitoring and control system allowed campus security to remotely view live feeds from the IP cameras, manage access control, and monitor intrusion detection systems. This comprehensive solution provided a seamless, integrated approach to campus security, streamlining management and ensuring a swift response to incidents.
The deployment of the advanced IP cameras and integrated security solutions by Beyond Innovations & Technologies significantly improved the overall safety and security at AIUB:
- Enhanced Surveillance: High-resolution IP cameras provided a comprehensive view of the campus, facilitating swift identification and response to incidents and deterring potential criminal activity.
- Improved Access Control: The integrated access control system ensured that only authorized personnel could access sensitive areas, reducing the risk of unauthorized entry and potential security breaches.
- Faster Incident Response: The intrusion detection system, combined with centralized monitoring and control, allowed for rapid response to potential security threats, minimizing the risk of damage or theft.
- Data-Driven Insights: The integrated security solution provided valuable data on campus activity patterns, enabling AIUB to optimize resource allocation, improve facility management, and plan for future security enhancements.
The successful implementation of the advanced IP cameras and integrated security solutions at AIUB demonstrates the transformative potential of modern security technology in creating a safe and secure environment for students, faculty, and staff. By prioritizing security and investing in cutting-edge solutions, educational institutions can effectively deter criminal activity and promote safety on campus.
