ELGIN, Texas - To help enhance the safety and security of staff and students at Elgin High School, ADT Security Services donated a digital video surveillance and recording system to the 950-student public campus.

The donated equipment will include 22 high-resolution day/night cameras installed throughout the school and a digital video management system that will provide video-based motion detection, object search and digital video enhancement. An observation video monitor placed in the front office will display a tour of selected camera views. A second video monitor will allow school administrators to independently assess activities in real time and to investigate incidents.

ADT’s sales and service office in Austin, Texas, will provide installation services. Joining ADT in this project are technology companies San Diego-based American Dynamics, a Tyco Safety Products company, and Integral Technologies of Indianapolis. Work on the installation of the surveillance system was scheduled for completion in late February.
