nSide Newsletter 2020-Q3
In the 3rd quarter of this year, many schools across the country started back to instruction one way or another. We have been with you every step of the way and will continue to do so. With COVID-19 and the unprecedented nature of schooling this year, we have presented several solutions to help mitigate this transition, keeping the future in mind beyond the pandemic. These tools keep you in one platform, keeping you organized under one umbrella without having to worry about remembering credentials to other applications. These tools also have applicability beyond COVID-19, helping to keep your schools safe, organized, and functioning at its best. Lastly, the State of Alabama has provided emergency funding through the Coronavirus Relief Fund for acquiring these solutions, but ONLY FIFTEEN PERCENT of the funds allotted for Education Health and Wellness and Educational Remote Learning Devices have been expended throughout the State. The deadline for using this funding opportunity is December 15, 2020.
Below is a highlight of what we developed over the summer.
nSide|Fleet + WiFi
- We offer a mobile WiFi solution that gives your students the best opportunity for distance learning. The mobile Wifi solution can be installed on school buses and our team can provide a plan for deployment throughout your community. Our tech solutions ensure a safe learning environment and we provide the best-in-class solutions all together in one platform. As an added bonus, we have implemented our BusSOS™ solution, which is an emergency panic button that connects directly to E-911 call centers to provide a location of the emergency.
nSide|Live + ETS
- Our new nSide|Live + ETS product uses cameras, installed with thermographic imaging, to scan the temperatures of up to 1000 people in an hour. As multiple students are scanned, while maintaining social distance, our system will automatically detect temperatures above 100°F with use of infrared cameras and AI systems. The system locates and scans each person’s eye ducts, providing the core and most accurate body temperature possible. Rather than expose door monitors to face-to-face screening, this solution will immediately send alerts of any raised temperature to the administrators.
- nSide|Fleet + WIFI adds value beyond the purpose of mobile hotspots for remote learning. It adds BusSOS™ technology to be used in all situations, allows for fleet tracking and maintenance management, and the ability to add digital, cloud-based cameras. If nSide|Fleet + WIFI is already implemented in your district, these upgrades can happen at a reduced cost.
- nSide|Live + ETS provides opportunities to fully integrate existing camera systems with the nSide School Safety Platform. The ETS solutions use the same EagleEyeNetworks products that are used to add cameras to the cloud for sharing through the nSide Platform. This solution fits directly with one of the Alabama SAFE Council Report recommendations for physical security: “Surveillance Systems Linked to Law Enforcement”.
All of these current or future upgrades are possible and become easy fixes if a school uses their CARES Act funding. Don’t deprive your district of this opportunity!
