Washington State School District Augments Transportation Security with MobileCamViewer

Large school district adds application from mobile surveillance leader mobiDEOS to increase response times to security incidents

The Transportation Department of the Stanwood-Camano School District in northwestern Washington State transports 2,700 K-12 students to and from eight schools each day.  The sheer volume of the student body requires a large bus fleet for the daily schedule, and protection against theft and vandalism is pertinent to keep everything running on time.

The school district has introduced mobile surveillance into its fixed security system to enable quicker evaluation of potential security incidents, using the MobileCamViewer mobile surveillance application from mobiDEOS to help keep transportation routines intact.

Lee Heinrichs, director of transportation for Stanwood-Camano School District, was looking for an application to expedite the process of incident response.  Heinrichs downloaded MobileCamViewer to his iPad, immediately slicing slice two minutes off the security system login process — a potential difference-maker in critical situations.

“My iPad is instant on, so it is quicker to access my cameras than booting up my home computer and making a connection,” said Heinrichs.  “This offers the potential for quicker analysis of a security breach, and offers a fresh approach from doing it the old way.”

The larger tablet screen allows Heinrichs to access all of his perimeter cameras live from a single screen.  The seven cameras overlook various parking lots, a fuel tank and the central motor pool, giving Heinrichs a clear view of all activity around the perimeter.

Most calls coming from the district’s security company alert Heinrichs of general intrusions or alarms set off by staff — but the peace of mind that comes with an expansive security system incorporating fixed and mobile surveillance is priceless.

“As far as I can envision, there is a big advantage to being able to look at my cameras from a mobile applications, especially if I get a call while out on the road,” said Heinrichs.

MobileCamViewer offers secure, reliable carrier-grade cell phone-based video surveillance and remote monitoring solutions, providing “anytime, anywhere” mobile video surveillance for virtually every situation.  Its compatibility across many smartphones, tablets, cameras, DVRs, NVRs and video servers — as well as simple integration with PC and MAC-based iOS systems — enables MobileCamViewer to comply with both new and existing network infrastructures.  The basic MobileCamViewer application is free, with incremental costs for premium service users.
