Environmental sensors are a powerful tool for educational institutions to monitor air quality, temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, and light levels in classrooms, detect potential health and safety risks, track metrics for building-wide changes, and monitor the environment outside the school. These sensors provide numerous benefits for schools in terms of creating a comfortable and safe learning environment, informing classroom management decisions, and allowing for the optimal arrangement of classrooms and other learning spaces. As technological advances continue, environmental sensors will become an increasingly important part of educational settings.
Teachers and the other faculty can leverage the vape and smoke detection sensor in bathrooms and locker rooms to help identify vape events on campus. When paired with a camera outside of the bathroom or locker room, school leaders can capture additional evidence to help address, prevent and deter on–campus vaping.
Air Quality Monitoring
Indoor school environments often contain unnoticed indoor pollutants, which are present in most buildings at 2-5 times the levels found outdoors and can cause a variety of health problems, including: headaches, fatigue, sore throat, dizziness and more. By monitoring CO2, PM2.5 and other indoor air quality essentials, schools can improve the health and safety of their indoor school environments.
IT Room protection
Schools today depend on high–speed internet connectivity and 100% uptime for key IT resources. To protect valuable IT infrastructure and avoid costly downtime, schools can use the SV20 series to proactively monitor temperature and humidity in IDF closets. By monitoring these conditions and receiving alerts in real–time as conditions deviate from pre–set levels, school IT professionals can ensure server and device uptime even when they’re not on site.
Schools often have on–campus dining options and associated food service assets such as refrigerators and freezers. If a door is left open or if one of these assets experiences unexpected downtime, school facilities can strain to meet the needs of students. As
such, schools can use our sensors to monitor refrigerators and freezers in cafeterias to minimize food spoilage and maximize freshness.
