AMITYVILLE, N.Y., Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- NAPCO Security Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: NSSC), one of the world's leading solutions providers and manufacturers of high tech electronic intrusion security, IoT connected home, video and fire systems, as well as enterprise-class access control and door locking products, today announces it has been chosen by the Houston Independent School District (HISD), to supply "cutting edge" technology security motion detection in all its schools.
NAPCO's unique adaptive motion detection equipment automatically selects the appropriate mode in order to optimize intruder catch and reduce false alarms. The adaptive technology updates minute by minute which will improve the detection ability by adjusting for environmental noise such as air conditioners blowing on the blinds causing movement.
HISD, the 7th largest K-12 school district in the U.S., encompassing over 300 campuses/facilities, has secured a bond that would fund considerable spending on upgrading its security needs. In the next two years, HISD will be completing the installation in all of its schools advanced enterprise-wide access control systems, supplied by Continental Access Control, a division of NAPCO.
Continental Access enterprise class access control systems offer a scalable interoperable platform. The system allows for lockdown capabilities and has real time event linking, mapping and scheduling. The system can be deployed using a wired, wireless or hybrid solution.
Richard Soloway CEO commented "The Houston ISD project is a great opportunity for NAPCO and is an example of the needs for school security upgrades and new installations across the United States. Our products are used in hundreds of schools already and the number continues to grow as highlighted by today's news of the Houston ISD project. It is a big market with 100,000 K-12 schools and 10,000 Colleges and Universities."
