Latest Innovations and Technologies
Classroom AV Solutions
Today's educators, especially at the university level, often rely on AV solutions like commercial displays and projectors to deliver lectures. Additionally, many schools offer hybrid and remote learning options, where instructors use video conferencing products such as headsets and webcams to teach the class. ADI carries everything you need to accommodate in-person and remote learning alike.
ADI's inventory of access control products gives administrators and security personnel the means to manage their campus on every front. ADI offers entry and exit products for gated parking lots, keypads and readers for secure areas, and solutions like push-to-exit buttons, turnstiles and walk-through metal detectors for pedestrian traffic. Many ADI products can be integrated into centralized access management systems, allowing the educational institution to keep tabs on who is coming and going across the entire school.
Today, safety is a top priority for schools. And in active shooter situations, faster response times help to reduce fatalities. Help your customers respond faster with the help of ADI's suite of intrusion-based products, which are ideal for supporting school safety. With gunshot detectors, motion and perimeter sensors and security sirens and strobes, ADI has what schools need to react faster.
Whether it's a local pre-K or an Ivy League college, fire safety is always of paramount importance. ADI's portfolio of smoke and heat detectors, fire control panels, alarm pull stations, notification and voice evacuation solutions, alarm communicators, accessories and other products features the most trusted brands in the industry, and can accommodate everything from chemistry labs to dorms to cafeteria kitchens.
Elementary, junior high and high schools typically depend on paging and intercom systems to quickly locate students or employees, broadcast announcements and relay emergency information. Similarly, many colleges and universities incorporate emergency paging systems. ADI offers the microphones, loudspeakers, cabling and related products that give the school administration an open line to the rest of the campus.
School security is a central concern for all types of educational institutions, and ADI's suite of video surveillance solutions give administrators the means to safeguard perimeters, hallways, parking lots, stadiums, campus quads and other points of interest. Multiple cameras sold through ADI support video analytics and AI functionality, including gunshot analytics, giving security personnel the power to monitor foot traffic, track vehicle license plates and alert users of suspicious activity as it occurs.
Every school has private areas where surveillance cameras and video recording devices are not an option. Here, cutting-edge sensors can add the requisite layer of security. ADI offers sensors that can detect gunshots and cries for help, as well as environmental sensors that can pick up behaviors like vaping and smoking in restrooms. ADI sensors can also be installed to detect chemical spills and hazardous gas leaks in places like laboratories and maintenance closets.
From school plays to guest speakers to the first game of the season, most schools need AV solutions that can be used to address a crowd. ADI sells essentials such as commercial displays, mixers, amplifiers, stadium speakers and microphones with varying capabilities and price points, giving you the ability to accommodate a wide range of campus events and activities and ensure that the audience is satisfied with their audiovisual experience.
ADI offers a comprehensive selection of hubs, switches, routers, wireless access points, PoE injectors, repeaters and other products to keep IT systems and mobile devices communicating on campus. Whether it's for a professor sharing a YouTube clip from her laptop during a lecture, a security guard who just spotted a crime-in-progress in the parking garage, or high school students posting selfies from this year's homecoming dance, ADI networking products can be trusted to get the job done.
Every school, regardless of size, purpose or student population served, will need wiring infrastructure. ADI's structured wiring product line includes modular connectors, inserts, patch panels and cables, enclosures, workstations, outlets and more. When you shop at ADI, you've got everything you need to get – and keep – campus systems like classrooms, administrative offices, cafeterias, auditoriums and dormitories up and running.
Setting up a large school, multi-building campus or multi-campus college system can be a complex endeavor. ADI's Systems Design team is here to help installers and dealers find the right products at the best possible price, while sharing expert recommendations and best-practice knowledge to make sure the project goes smoothly from start to finish.
Maintaining proper cleanliness and sanitation at schools is a big challenge, and ADI’s selection of central vacuum solutions can be a valuable tool. Central vacuum systems are portable, easy to use and regularly outperform standard vacuums in the removal of dust, dirt and allergens from indoor spaces. ADI offers power units, fittings, pipes, cleaning sets, valves and accessories, everything you need to get custodial teams up and running.
Project registration can give installers an immense advantage on large-scale jobs, such as updating a school's IT infrastructure or outfitting a new student center. When you register your project with ADI, you give our representatives the opportunity to leverage their vendor relationships on your behalf, getting you better pricing on all the essentials. It only takes a few minutes to get started.
While many established school districts and colleges will have their own cybersecurity solutions in place, the Defendify cybersecurity service is perfect for any educational facilities who don't have their own cybersecurity team.

Explore ADI's Defendify Reseller Partner Program to learn more.

Regardless of your trade or specialty in the low-voltage industry, ADI is with you every step of the way.
ADI offers pre-terminated cable assemblies for a range of applications, including fiber optic, audio/video, category copper, and telephone. This gives installers the option to, say, add a fiber-optic backbone to a university-affiliated research institute rather than declining the job if they do not have the means to complete it. Getting started is simple, just fill out a form on the ADI website and a representative will contact you.
While the fundamentals of teaching and learning have not changed much, the types of solutions educational institutions seek out can change considerably. For example, digital technology products give teachers the ability to promote collaboration and enrich the learning experience. Similarly, many schools have found a need to install safeguards against active shooters in recent years. ADI's vendor family includes the biggest names in the low-voltage industry, many of whom directly address the challenges and opportunities that today's schools face.
