Hikvision, Eagle Eye Networks Solution Complies With Texas Schools Requirements

The Hikvision-Eagle Eye collaboration allows Texas school districts to quickly deploy a Cloud-based video surveillance solution to comply with SB-507.

AUSTIN, Texas — Hikvision and Eagle Eye Networks have partnered to market a Cloud-based solution that enables Texas school districts to comply with video surveillance requirements set forth in Texas Senate Bill 507 (SB-507).

SB 507 requires school districts to install audio/video monitoring equipment in any self-contained classroom in which special education services are being provided to at least 50% of the students for at least one-half of the school day, according to teachthevote.org.

Among other conditions, the bill requires school districts to store the audio and video recordings for not less than six months and to release the footage to persons specified by the bill. If a video clip is requested it must be available for the school district to review within 48 hours.

The SB-507-compliant solution combines Eagle Eye’s Cloud Security Camera VMS and Hikvision IP cameras. Features include:

  • Video and audio storage for 90 days
  • Video-sharing capability from any Internet-connected device
  • Mobile app for access to historic or live footage on-the-go
  • Cyber-secure video highly resistant to being hacked
  • High-definition IP cameras
  • Restricted user permissions on a camera-by-camera basis
  • Customized alerts (motion, intrusion and more.)

“Hikvision is pleased to work with partners like Eagle Eye to provide solutions that make a positive impact for teachers, parents and families,” says Alex Asnovich, head of marketing, Hikvision North America.

The SB-507 video surveillance solution is currently deployed at a major school district in Texas, and several school districts are following suit, according to a joint announcement. The solution can be deployed in less than a day and enables easy search, retrieval and sharing of relevant video clips, according to the announcement.

“We are pleased to be supporting Texas School Districts with this enhanced video surveillance solution,” says Dean Drako, CEO and founder of Eagle Eye Networks. “We look forward to working with more and more school districts to help them meet their security needs while also creating a safer environment for students, parents, and staff.”
