Army and Navy Academy, a college preparatory military boarding school in Carlsbad, California, installed Hanwha security cameras as part of an upgrade to its video surveillance. The school—with more than 140 faculty and staff and more than 300 students—incorporated the upgrades as part of a larger facility renovation.

The academy’s operations, safety, and security department replaced an outdated analog camera system. The new digital cameras are equipped with analytics and integrated with Wisenet WAVE. The customizable IP-based video management system includes line crossing and other analytics along the campus perimeter and low-traffic areas. These features alert security operations center staff to movement, while the cameras help operators determine if a security team or the local police need to be called.
