Campus Security Systems That Protect Staff and Pupils in Schools and Universities

Establishing and maintaining a secure, safe learning environment in line with changing regulations and the constraints of tight budgets is a challenge across the education system from primary schools through to university campus environments. PACOM offers integrated campus security solutions that meet that challenge.

Security has moved higher and higher up the agenda for educational establishments in recent years as the threat of crime and violence has increased. Schools, colleges and universities – often with limited resources – need cost-effective, reliable and flexible security systems – to help them deliver their duty of care to staff and students.

PACOM’s access control devices and Unison software are used extensively in campus environments to provide a single integrated solution to the protection of people, property and assets across multiple buildings. PACOM enables its customer to restrict unauthorised access to areas with valuable equipment (such as libraries, IT suites and laboratories) and to protect ‘secure’ areas (such as halls of residence, records offices, staff rooms and medical facilities) and to manage student ID credentials to access campus events.


PACOM’s open, integrated security management platform called Unison cleverly acts as a “bridge” between the security system and other subsystems.

Unison integrates signals received across its alarm, access control, fire, intercom and video systems to provide a real-time overview of campus security to support both small and big educational sites.

A user-friendly graphical user interface, easy functionality and efficient bulk programming makes administration easy and saves time.
