Control Daycare Access

Your employees can see who’s at the door on a video monitor and talk to them before granting entry. An access control system can also help prevent children from opening doors and wandering off. You’ll be able to track and monitor who enters your daycare center and when.


Monitor and Record to Improve Safety and Liability

A child care center security system will help put parents’ minds at ease while ensuring the safety of both staff and children. Video surveillance cameras will also help protect your daycare business from a liability perspective, as you can record hundreds of hours of high-definition video.

Protect Your Daycare Business with a Fire Alarm System

Daycare centers are required by law to have a fire alarm system installed. Security Alarm will design a custom fire alarm system that will put your daycare center in compliance with local, state, and Federal codes. Monitored carbon monoxide detectors provide an advanced warning in case of elevated levels.


Monitor Your Daycare Center Remotely

A remote monitoring system will enable you to view live feeds of surveillance cameras, check alarm status, and perform a wide range of other activities. You can log in from any internet-connected computer or use the user-friendly smartphone app.

Give Your Staff the Ability to Instantly Call for Help

The quickest way to call for help in an emergency is to use a school panic button. It will immediately notify first responders, which can save both time and lives. We can place wireless panic buttons anywhere in your daycare facility.
