Security and Safety Systems
SCHOOL SECURITY AND SAFETY
The area of school security is of prime importance to ACES. However, we believe it must go beyond setting off an alarm when an intrusion occurs in the night. Our vision is to be preventive in two ways. First involves notifying people attempting to invade the school that the facility is secure, they are being monitored and need to leave the property immediately. If they no not depart private security and the police immediately respond. The second is through effective employee training to successfully handle situations threatening situations when school is in session and+ if necessary, to provide external resources on site during school hours. ACES has many pieces in place and is waiting for action on proposed legislation to finalize the model. If you have interest in learning or sharing more to increase the security of the school staff, students and facilities please contact Dr. Max Luft or Dr. Jaime Tamez.

Smart buildings have intelligent systems that are designed to communicate with each other and work seamlessly together every minute of every day: 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Smart buildings have systems and devices designed to allow them to communicate with other systems, monitor themselves and associated systems, and make adjustments as conditions dictate. Building systems can range from fire detection, suppression, and reporting devices to complex climate and lighting controls or perimeter intrusion devices that can monitor all activity from points of egress and ingress, such as windows, doors, fences, and loading docks. Buildings, like people, have different needs and need different degrees of intelligence. Whatever your needs, we can engineer, install, and service everything you need to make your building as smart as it needs to be.
Are complex facilities with large fluctuations in occupancy: reception areas, restaurants & cafeterias, class rooms, dorms, offices, areas of assembly, parking lots and structures all have different requirements. Today, Universities and Schools are under increased scrutiny to save money, protect their students, teachers and staff, and improve function in this fast changing technical environment.
IntraWorks takes a proactive approach to these issues by studying new trends in education and applying electronic building system technology to help save money, reduce risk, and improve function. Additionally, IntraWorks uses a comprehensive approach to the Educational Facility itself by considering ALL the electronic building systems when planning the next upgrade, move, add or change. Lastly, IntraWorks offers constant commissioning and predictive maintenance in order to save building and campus life cycle costs.

Helping Private and Public Schools
IntraWorks currently has a buying agreements with the Association of Charter Schools Education Services (ACES) through which we are able to provide both private and government schools in New Mexico with professional, high-quality safety, security, and services at a lower cost. We’re excited at the opportunity to be able to help educational facilities create a safer environment for students who should be able to focus on learning without concerns of personal safety.
Create a safe learning environment
Universities and Schools are targets to both insider and outsider threats to include asset, data and computer theft, workplace violence, assaults, terrorism, active shooter and vandalism. School administrators and teachers are charged with the protection and safety of large groups of people (stadiums, events) to include the public along with students. By use of advanced and integrated CCTV, access control, perimeter, and intrusion systems, IntraWorks can help to reduce the likelihood of injury to the students and staff and provide valuable investigative information if an incident takes place. Video and Audio analytics can detect crowd violence (fights), workplace violence, bombs, intruders, and even the sound of a gun being fired immediately so that authorities can be notified quickly saving lives and reputations. Special purpose radios or communicators can also add security and function by keeping staff and teachers informed up to the minute of any emergencies, requests, or special needs. Other communication and security systems integrate to smartphone applications so that mass broadcasts can be implemented to students, teachers, staff, authorities and parents. IntraWorks also sells reception or visitor management systems to ID, verify, and record the presence guests or workers on the campus. These systems are very effective in reducing workplace violence, kidnapping, and sexual assault incidence. IntraWorks has combined several technologies to include: CCTV, shot detection, bullet resistant glass, mass notification systems, and special communication devices to help diminish losses from the incidence of an active shooter on campus. This comprehensive safe school solution also includes vulnerability assessment and emergency response plans.
Universities and Schools are held to tight safety standards for the protection of its students, teachers, and staff. IntraWorks can provide systems that avoid injury and save lives in an emergency. By use of advance fire detection and evacuation, critical systems monitoring, mass communication, paging, mass texting, and CCTV systems, emergencies are detected early and occupants are evacuated rapidly. In the case of a shooter, weather event or outside threat, the building itself can become a safe haven for protection. Our integrated lockdown systems and bullet resistant barriers help further protect the occupants in any facility.
