Schools, colleges and universities are increasingly taking advantage of wireless technology to streamline their operations and reduce costs. As a larger percentage of budgets are being consumed by IT equipment, the tracking of that equipment, and the safety of the students using it, becomes paramount.
AeroScout solutions for Education leverage the facility’s existing Wi-Fi network and provide a variety of applications across the campus:
Schools, colleges and universities are filled with high-value mobile equipment (such as computer hardware and audiovisual equipment) spread across large campuses. AeroScout helps preserve IT investment by tracking assets, monitoring their movement and use, and preventing theft. The solution enables automated inventory management and maintains accurate accounting records of high-value assets, eliminating periodic manual inventory counts. Real-time Asset Management enables the reduction of write-offs, and increases equipment utilization while avoiding excess capital expenses.
Student and Staff Security
Ensuring the security and peace of mind of students and staff on campus is a top concern. Real-time visitor tracking can help ensure that everyone within school buildings and grounds are monitored. Students as well as staff can use Wi-Fi Tags with distress buttons to alert campus security. The alert is accompanied by the real-time location of the individual requiring assistance.
Labs, food services refrigeration units and network server closets require temperature conditions to be monitored and alerted on when out of range. AeroScout's solution is completely Wi-Fi-based and requires no additional sensor network. It automates the manual processes for temperature monitoring and provides enhanced reporting and alerting when temperature is out of range.
