A Smart Campus follows the same principles of a smart city on a smaller scale. Campus administrators have similar concerns and challenges in managing a large area of physical assets and people. In the last few years, safety and security of students and faculty have been a major concern. Good lighting and regular patrols are no longer enough to deliver the protection students and faculty want and need.
Internet-connected security services provide students and families peace of mind. Smart campus solutions help reduce crime while increasing awareness and helps ensure the safety of students and faculty. With reliable connected systems, universities can deploy intelligent technologies to protect assets and people.
Secure smart campuses use network-connected tools, such as:
< Location intelligence supports the safety of students and staff walking alone to evening classes.
< Wireless sensors monitor asset location and use to protect high-dollar investments.
< Smart locks, geofencing, and smart ID cards provide convenient and safe access control.
< Digital signage and kiosks alert people and help evacuate areas quickly.
< Smart IP video cameras send data and alerts so administrators can secure locations.
Security is just one aspect of a smart campus. With AIM’s micropostioning, the use of IoT sensors and devices can improve mobility throughout the campus for people and vehicles.
Asset Tracking: locating a missing vehicle, bicycle, or other asset using a smart tracking sensor.
Traffic Congestion: Quickly finding vacant parking spaces using a smart sensor.
Energy Efficiency: Smart lighting systems, automated temperature control, smart HVAC systems.
Enhanced Connectivity: Connectivity across the entire campus enabling seamless access to online resources and educational materials.
Campus Efficiencies: Data provides insight into campus operations, resource utilization, and student behavior allowing the implementation of strategies to improve campus efficiencies and student experiences.
