Schools Adopting Real Time Location Systems To Improve School Safety

The Ekahau school safety solution, allows teachers to easily utilize a wearable Ekahau Wi-Fi badge in the event of a security or health emergency and the Ekahau badge sends a request for assistance within seconds, including event details and the teacher’s location, to the school’s Resource Officer and local dispatchers. Ekahau’s 2-way RTLS messaging solution eliminates the need for manual dialing and map look-ups; pulling down on a badge places a school into lock-down. During emergencies, dispatchers may also use Ekahau messaging software to send mass communication texts to badge-holders, directing teachers and classes away from danger without dependence on cellular networks.  In addition, the Ekahau Forensics Replay™ software feature allows administrators to test emergency plan effectiveness by reviewing second-by-second event replays.
