March is Services for Schools Month at Falcon Direct

Our March 2011 Blogs reflect a major emphasis on school safety.  The reason being that Title IV and eRate funding is available for enhancing student, teacher, and driver safety.  In Alabama, our schools are under proration (that's what you do when you don't have enough money to meet your needs).

Concurrent with a general lack of funding, there is a directive that all buses should be equipped with cameras and communications.  Although off the radar, the need for GPS bus tracking is well known although the cost of infrastructure or utilization of cellular networks is cost prohibitive.

So, the conclusion is that there is a need to combine objectives for the purpose of reducing cost while simultaneously developing system technology that will qualify for grant funding (either Title IV, eRate, or both).  That's why our new AVS (Advanced Video System) may be of considerable interest to our student safety and transportation administrators.

AVS is the ultimate bus camera system offering HD quality providing clarity and definition simply beyond comparison, but that's only part of the story.  AVS eliminates the number one problem with bus cameras - you don't have to deal with removable storage devices - No tapes, no disks, no cards, no sticks - NOTHING! 

And if you think that's something, think about this!  The AVS system can provide voice and data communications plus real time vehicle monitoring.  You read it right - With the AVS system, you don't need 2-way radios or cellular phones and you don't have to settle for a second class vehicle tracking system.  With the AVS system, you can have real time vehicle tracking with simple report generation, emergency alarm reporting, and even the ability to look in on a bus from your office PC!
