Hikvision, world’s provider of security solutions partnered with the Sanjivani Group of Institutes to offer latest Surveillance, Broadcasting and Security Solutions. For the first time Hikvision has offered Artificial Intelligence enabled Face Recognition Terminals – a revolutionary product, in India’s education sector.
Sanjivani Group of Institutes situated at Kopargaon, Ahmednagar is a premier institute for Engineering, Pharmacy, Nursing and Diploma in Ahmednagar District. Sanjivani took its names and inspiration from the famous Epic of Ramayana where ‘Sanjivani buty’ was brought for revival of life. The Sanjivani Rural Education Society (SRES), was established by Honourable Shri. Shankarrao Genuji Kolhe in 1983, at Kopargaon, rural domain in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra, India.
As the educational scenario changed with time, SRES understood the need and added a number of courses under the umbrella of the Sanjivani Rural Education Society (SRES) and consequently it gave birth of the Sanjivani College of Pharmaceutical Education and Research, Sanjivani Senior and Junior College, Sanjivani Academy, a CBSE school and Sanjivani International school.
The entire campus of the Sanjivani Group of Institutes is spread out in more than 100 acres land. There are different departments in various buildings, playgrounds, Hostels and staff quarters. Due to vast area and having no. of approx. 8000-1000 students, it’s very difficult for management to identify unauthorized person inside the campus. In the past, many instances of bullying, robbery, theft, ragging and pick-pocketing were reported.
Securing the Campus
With the expansion of the Sanjivani Group, there were many challenges faced by students and staff in terms of safety and security. “Consequently, we took our first step towards it by installing Hikvision IP CCTV surveillance in all our campus areas for monitoring. We were using it for the last three to four years and till date we have never faced major issues regarding the same, there might have been some minor issues, but with the assistance of Hikvision’s Technical Support Team & System Integrator, we were able to resolve it within span of a day. The clarity and the quality of the camera is undoubtedly appreciable, and we are very much satisfied with it,” said Amit N Kolhe, Managing Trustee, Sanjivani Rural Education Society (SRES).
He further added, “Presently the security technology has changed a lot. While understanding the need of safety and security of the students, we decided to go for a perfect security, broadcasting and surveillance solution. We contacted Hikvision team and their System integration partner Om Agency for an advanced solution. After understanding our requirements, they introduced some of the latest technologies related to security, broadcasting and surveillance.”
He further elaborated, “After this we finalized the key areas by conducting the security survey in the campus. We got many advanced solutions implemented with help of SI partner and Hikvision team. The solutions included, ANPR cameras for number plate recognition of cars and bikes at entry and exit gates, Facial Recognition Devices for Time Attendance & Access Control of Students & Staff Members and Facial Recognition Camera at the entrance of Campus to avoid any blacklisted person from entering the campus.”
The advantage of Hikvision security and surveillance products is that everything can be monitored through a single software platform, i.e. IVMS 5200E, which comes as all in one software. The same software can be used by seamless integration for Time Attendance, Access Control and Surveillance,” concluded Amit N. Kolhe.
