Security Education

Effective security systems are key to your safeguarding responsibilities. At ECS, we have a dedicated education team with many years’ experience of working with schools, colleges and universities. We offer effective, integrated systems that can be installed across multiple sites. If an alarm is triggered when your site is unoccupied, our systems can alert your keyholders and the police via our responsive monitoring station.

Our Process

Education Security Specialists

When you work with ECS to provide your security solutions, you will be allocated a dedicated education account manager and a single number to call in case of problems. Our DBS-checked engineers are experts in installing security systems during the holidays to minimise disruption. They are also equipped to solve most technical problems during a single visit. Increasingly, schools are becoming part of multi-organisation trusts – and we can help them save money with integrated contracts that offer a bespoke premises security service across multiple sites.

Smart Locks

Prevent unauthorised visitors from gaining access to your site and your systems with smartphone door locks that add an extra layer of security to your premises. Fast, convenient, and easy to operate, smart locks are ideal for managing entry without manual intervention. We can also supply and install wireless lockers for use in staffrooms and student communal areas.

Access Control

Every school and college has high-security areas that should only be accessed by certain people. Our access control systems can ensure that only approved people can access different areas. Ideal for managing access for staff, visitors and contractors, our systems can be operated using swipe cards or even biometric readers.

Intruder Alarms

Many buildings on education sites or campuses are left empty overnight, putting valuable contents at risk. Our intruder alarms can secure multiple buildings, entrances and exits. Specialist sensors can detect motion, vibration and breaking glass, sending instant alerts in the event of suspicious activity. Automatic loudspeaker warnings can also be deployed to deter intruders or vandals.


Effective CCTV systems can detect and deter intruders, as well as capture high-quality footage that can be used as evidence. Exterior and interior CCTV is also an important tool for school managers, allowing them to obtain and review footage of bullying, bad behaviour or other incidents. We can work with you to design and install CCTV systems that meet your precise needs.


You need to the ability to check the identity of every visitor to a school or campus building. Our intercom systems allow operators such as receptionists to see exactly who is calling, and to challenge them if necessary.

Gates & Barriers

Gates and barriers are key to your site’s security. They not only help to keep intruders out, but also allow you to control who can access a site or building – whether on foot or in a vehicle. Our smart gates can be programmed to limit access to authorised personnel, while our perimeter fencing solutions are low-maintenance and vandal resistant.

Lockdown Alarms

If an incident occurs at your site, you need the ability to lock down the premises as quickly as possible. We can help you choose a lockdown alarm system that allows staff to sound the alarm in an emergency situation, alerting staff and students to follow safety protocols. These systems are simple to install and allow you to make routine announcements, as with a traditional tannoy.
