K-12 School Security Solutions


K-12 institutions have specific security needs that are unique to their environment. To that end, Medeco manufactures products that meet these special needs such as audits, scheduling, large master key systems, one-key convenience, easy retrofit, and much more. 

For those areas of the facility that need 24/7 access but will not require information about who has entered, Medeco offers several high security mechanical key-control solutions that are ideal.

However, other areas of the campus will need to track access information. For instance, FERPA requires schools to closely control access to records including medical and academic files. Government mandated testing materials must also be stored in a secure area.  These items are often located in areas that are not always easily secured. Audit information can be helpful to eliminate liability should information loss occur. 

Being able to secure computer lab equipment has never been more critical for schools, both during and after hours. Mechanically rekeying such facilities to account for student and faculty turnover can be time consuming, cumbersome and expensive. With Medeco eCylinder, key access can be electronically changed in a matter of minutes, saving time and money! It’s a system that cuts risks without sacrificing access to important learning tools.

Medeco offers the perfect combination of high security mechanical and Intelligent Key solutions to meet the multi-faceted needs of education campuses of all sizes.
