Telit Wireless Solutions, a provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions, announced that its xE910 family of unified form factor modules will be used in future versions of the Campus Eye reporting as MessageQube devices that currently utilize the CC864 module.
Combining a dedicated mobile app and M2M communications technology from Telit, Campus Eye helps address the safety concerns in schools and campuses. It allows staff and students to make real-time reports on suspicious activities and when necessary engage with campus police quickly.
Telit modules are embedded in one or more MessageQubes, which are cellular printers that power the system. They print report information, plus tips and leads in the form of text messages, and send the information to a secure, online dashboard for viewing and action.
Reports are also printed out in order to alert personnel that information has been filed. Authorized individuals are then able to take prompt action having received accurate and timely reports.
The M2M solution also features a unique 10-digit phone number that is used to report suspicious activities as well as safety concerns and facilities issues. In addition location information and photos add to message content to enhance the information.
“Communities are safer when crimes and unsafe conditions are reported to the police”, said Kim Vansell, former chief of Police at the University of Central Missouri and now executive director of the Center for Campus Safety. “Campus Eye provides a very convenient way of communicating to public safety authorities. This technology improves communication and is very practical for today’s students.”
Mike Ueland, president of Telit Americas, said, “It is hard to overstate the importance of ensuring that our schools and colleges are safe environments and we’re pleased that our communications technology is playing a pivotal role.”
