Westbrook School Department recently completed renovations at Saccarappa Elementary School in Westbrook, Maine.
Connectivity Point (CPDI) worked as a partner in completion of the renovations in areas of network cabling, audio/visual systems, paging, and security systems for classrooms, administrative offices and break rooms throughout the school.
CPDI designed and installed a Kantech access control system, Axis IP Cameras, and an Aiphone security system. Each camera is programmed to Westbrook School Department’s requirements for recording time, frame rate, motion detection and image quality.
Included in the project was the design and installation of a Telecor T2 paging/public address system throughout the building. Telecor paging systems are used as mass notification systems in the event of emergency.
CPDI’s audio/visual group designed and installed equipment in the school’s café and gymnasium. CPDI installed one projector with projector screen, as well as two audio systems equipped with microphone and music playing capabilities.
“We felt the difference immediately. In the cafeteria, the voice amplification has been amazing, said Principal Dr. Brian Mazjanis. “It allows the staff to be heard using a quiet calm voice. Not having to raise our voices to be heard, has allowed the tone of lunch to be more in line with how we want to teach children. We don’t want them to think we are yelling at them.”
“Having a high-tech school is very important,” continues Mazjanis. “We need to be able to connect with our children in a variety of sensory-catching ways when they are in school. The A/V stuff is really incredible. We are able to do some powerful multi-media presentations for school functions, like parent meetings and student recognition ceremonies.”
These integral cabling, security, paging, and audio/visual solutions provide a safer and more enjoyable school environment for Westbrook’s elementary students and faculty.
