Viscount Systems announces that Viscount’s Freedom access control system is being installed at a series of K-12 schools in New Mexico. The Freedom systems are being used for physical security and life safety.
“School districts everywhere are looking at creative ways to improve security but are also faced with budgetary limitations,” noted Stephen Pineau, CEO of Viscount. “Since most school security upgrades are at existing facilities the cost of running proprietary wire networks and control panels is very daunting. Simply finding an available room to mount panels is problematic. However, most school are heavily wired for IT so installing Freedom represents substantial savings since each Freedom Encryption bridge can use the existing network and the cost of dedicated control panels is eliminated.”
