Yesterday I was running late for a meeting and saved the file I was working on to a USB drive. Or so I thought. Later, when I went to review my work, I discovered it was gone! All those hours of work – wasted.
Normally we save files to a network storage drive, which is backed up regularly, to avoid these types of hasty mistakes. Those small text and image-based files are usually easy to retrieve, download and organize.
But what about video surveillance files? With one bus, it might not be a big deal to go out to the bus yard and pull the hard drive out of the on-board video recorder to access video footage of an incident. Imagine multiplying the bus count for a larger fleet of 50 or more?
Now imagine forgetting to replace the hard drive in that bus recorder and finding out after a serious accident that the video didn’t record. The cost of missing footage could be huge.
In a small group, any issues or challenges seem small and invisible at first. But as a group grows larger, so do the number of demands. With more challenges comes a higher chance that things can go wrong. Investing in a wireless video management system can prevent those types of issues from happening and ensure bus video is always recording.

The start of the school year is a hectic time for everyone – parents, students, school districts, and transportation departments. During this busy season, student safety is of paramount importance, especially when it comes to safety on school buses. As the bus is a small, enclosed space, it often becomes a ‘bully zone’, where victims have no place to retreat. This year, to increase student security on board and provide parents with peace of mind, many school districts will have video cameras installed on vehicles that transport kids to school.
