K-12 Schools

Delivering a high-quality educational experience in a safe and secure environment, while also managing efficient operations, is a priority for many educational leaders. The ability to locate equipment in real-time allows schools to:

  • safeguard assets from loss
  • ensure proper preventative maintenance
  • create a stronger operational structure, and
  • support quality teaching

For example, asset management technology can be useful for managing mobile classroom air purifiers, ensuring timely HVAC maintenance with automated alerting, or locating interactive smart boards and laptops.

Higher education

Many institutions of higher education serve as beacons of research and inquiry. Sensitive data, lab equipment, and research specimens are natural byproducts of the research many universities oversee. Many of these operations require manual intervention, such as checking lab temperatures to ensure proper testing environments, to avoid costly electrical failures or human error.

School security solutions, such as 24/7 environmental monitoring, offer colleges and universities a way to proactively manage and monitor individual lab environments. If temperatures go above or below a predetermined threshold, alerts are escalated to ensure timely response and early correction. Humidity and voltage can also be tracked and analyzed as well.
