SSI's fourth annual Security Solutions Awards demonstrate how industry manufacturers helped their integrators and end users resolve highly specific application needs with standout products and technologies. The Canyons School District serves nearly 34,000 students in 44 schools, covering 192 square miles, and relies on a well-coordinated bus system, transporting 15,000 students daily. The district’s mobile video system is critical to keeping students and drivers safe. For the past year, the district has moved forward with a major upgrade to its system, built with the Milestone open-platform VMS, Axis network cameras, designed and implemented by security integrator Stone Security.
"We developed a new way to deploy the Milestone VMS for transportation," said Andy Schreyer, Stone Security. "We're using XProtect Expert on the buses, with XProtect Corporate in the data center, and XProtect Interconnect joining the systems. With Milestone, we were able to craft a flexible solution that didn't exist previously."
