Schools To Launch Buzz-In System

Coeur d’Alene School District has taken another step in strengthening building security with the installation of a video intercom buzz-in system at the main entrance doors of school buildings.  Three schools will go live with the system January 8th during an initial pilot testing stage.  The system will be activated at all schools in February. The three pilot test schools are:  Ramsey Magnet School of Science (Elementary), Woodland Middle School and Coeur d’Alene High School. Once the school day begins, schools will be able to control visitor access by locking the front entrance doors.  All visitors will be required to stand in front of the camera and press the intercom button to activate the system and speak to a staff member prior to gaining entry into the school building/Laura Rumpler, Coeur d'Alene School District. More here.

Question: Sounds like a reasonable upgrade to me. What do you think?
