Security & Fire Protection Systems/CCTV cameras installation in exam centres.


Dear Frank

Do you recommend to install CCTV cameras hired from rental basis in exam centres of schools, colleges and institutions?.


Hi Prashant:  this is an extremely difficult question to answer without some more information in respect of your local laws and jurisdiction.  Many examination rooms require you to hand in bags, electronic and mobile devices before starting.  Renting a camera, DVR, and monitor may be an expensive proposition.  You'd need some way of downloading what the system records as a permanent record.  Have you considered putting up a bunch of fake dome cameras?  Perception is everything!  :-)
