Infant Protection Systems Explained

When a family has just welcomed a child into the world, this dream for many can become a nightmare if the infant goes missing. While abduction is a critical concern, accidental mix-ups are possible even in the most qualified birthing facilities. The benefits of an infant protection system cannot be understated. 

The use of real-time locating systems (RTLS) for infant protection has become increasingly popular as hospitals and birthing centers discover the benefits of having an RTLS system that allows them to locate even their smallest, most precious patients quickly. Perhaps the most challenging decision comes down to what infant protection system to choose to meet your needs best. Critical factors include cost, hardware and installation, tag requirements, staff training, future scalability, and many other factors. Here is what you need to know about infant protection systems.

K-12 Schools Should Upgrade to HD Video Surveillance

SSP April Education

Video surveillance in school communities has and will continue to be a critical aspect of K-12 school security. As school security needs have increased over the last two decades, security cameras have been used to document incidents of bullying, vandalism, and monitoring entrances. While these uses will continue to stay the same, if your school or district is still operating an analog or digital video surveillance system that isn’t high definition (HD), it might be time for you to upgrade.

What You Need to Know About Deployable Video Surveillance in Temporary Hospitals

SSP-Healthcare2-Jan2021As we’ve entered the second wave of COVID-19,  patients are now filling up hospital beds at record rates. After just the first week of December, the nation saw over 100,000 patients hospitalized with COVID-19, surpassing the number of hospitalizations during the first wave of cases. With many hospitals running the risk of maxing out their capacities, pop-up hospitals are likely to re-emerge in COVID-hotspots. Due to the high cost and complexity of traditional surveillance solutions, many of these pop-up structures could have critical shortfalls in security, potentially leading to theft, noncompliance, and unnecessary patient contact. Deployable video surveillance and audio solutions can help to mitigate these security risks. They’re relatively simple to deploy, cost-effective, and a high-quality alternative to more costly and complicated solutions.
