This might be a good fit - check out a new safety technology called SituCon (www.situcon.com) that schools around the country are deploying which also protects student and teacher privacy. It’s the best of both worlds – safety and privacy. This technology places “eyelids” over the cameras, so that they are only opened when needed. It also gives teachers wireless emergency buttons - If danger arises, with the push of one of these buttons emergency notifications are sent to school administrators and first responders, which detail who pressed the button and where they are in the building. At the same time, as the camera's eyelids open, live video of the situation can be viewed at dispatch centers and on smart phones.
