Eagle Eye Networks announces $1m Drako School Grant for cloud video surveillance in 2020

Eagle Eye Networks has announced funding up to $1m for its 2020 Drako School Grant, which supports the implementation and operation of security equipment and cloud recording services in US school buildings and/or campuses.

Eligible schools, or school districts, include accredited private and public schools, including elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and colleges.

“By increasing access to high-quality cloud video surveillance we’re cultivating a safer environment for our students, parents, and staff,” said Dean Drako, CEO of Eagle Eye Networks. “We believe that the future of video surveillance is in the cloud, and our schools deserve a flexible, secure, low-cost solution that only migrating to a Cloud VMS can guarantee.”

Eagle Eye Networks has already provided cloud-managed video surveillance solutions to schools across 15 US states. “We love Eagle Eye Networks. Compared to our slow, outdated surveillance system, we now have full confidence that the video is recording reliably in the cloud,” said former Drako School Grant winner Timothy Lee, principal at Oakwood High School in Oakwood, Illinois.

Why more schools are moving video surveillance to the cloud

  1. Flexible permission-based accessibility: Administrators can see what is happening in any location from any device running the Cloud VMS mobile app or a modern browser.
  2. First Responders access: School VMS administrators have the option to designate first responders to receive real-time and historical video access during emergency situations.
  3. Access control: Integrations with world-class companies like Brivo, DMP and Salto provide customers with comprehensive solutions that combine cloud video surveillance with key access control functions.
  4. IT efficiencies: Reduce the amount of equipment and human resources needed onsite by eliminating the need for maintaining outdated on-site storage systems.
  5. Centralized management: The Eagle Eye Cloud VMS provides central management tools that enable administrators to track user activity and delegate or revoke user access, all from a mobile or web browser.
  6. Unlimited scalability: Eagle Eye Cloud VMS allows customers to expand storage capacity on demand, minimizing capital expenditures and eliminating the need to decide how many servers will be needed in the future.
  7. Cybersecurity: All Eagle Eye Networks video is encrypted on site and remains encrypted at rest, in flight, and in our Cloud. This means your campus is not subject to unauthorized viewing or recording of school video.

School grant recipients are responsible for the cost of installation if necessary.

The Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS will work with a broad array of IP, analog, or HD over coax.
