IOT Monitoring and Alerts

It’s 3 AM, Alerts start going off in your new $20M Physics Technology Building. Sensors for lights, sound, and windows being open start going off. Facial Recognition has identified (10) people in there 20s, and a woman in her 50s, entering one of the secure rooms that was built with a federal funding in the building.

Oh, it’s just Astronomy Class!  

IDentifyED’s Campus solution along with our IOT Monitoring and Alert system has just told you all that you need to know. Your campus is not only safer, but smarter!

Special Note: Kornukopia IDentifyED does not manufacture or sell IOT Devices. We work with the companies that do. Our Incident Response, Incident Management and Emergency Broadcast Systems allow a campus and their secure operations center and facility management to use a single common enterprise solution for all alerts and responses, rather than a solution for each device.

IOT Monitoring and Alerts

Manage campus IOT Monitoring and Alerts

IOT (Internet of Things) is a big category. having a smart and safe campus demands that your campus operations and facility use IOT devices to monitor all types of issues with your campus. Whether it’s a vape detector, a smoke detector, a thermostat, the lights, or even a window shade having a common platform that can receive monitoring updates and alerts is important.

IOT Devices these days have a great deal of processing power, storage and are almost always networked, so the issue is like any other technology the true cost of the technology is not the device but the monitoring, support and managing the alerts.

So, what is being done today, with IOT Monitoring and Alerts on campuses?


Imagine if every door knob on your campus had it’s own key? No Common Keys.

Would that be a nightmare? Would that be unmanageable? Ah.. Yes!

Now imagine deploying IOT devices different kinds throughout your campus.

Now imagine that each device has it’s own monitoring and alert system.

Now imagine getting alerts from all of these devices from separate systems all day long.

If you have been building a “Smart Safe Campus” you don’t have to imagine, it’s gone from imagining to nightmare!

Today, this is the reality. However, All the IOT devices state that they can speak to a monitoring station via APIs. That’s really nice to say and easy to say.

So, now what exactly do you do?

Who can capture these alerts?

IF they are captured what incident response system can you use, if you have one?

How can you have multiple incident response system on campus?

How exactly will that work?

How will anyone know about an alert?

How can you measure anything?

How can you hold people accountable to responding to alerts? Etc, Etc, Etc…

Most of the time, when we ask these questions we start with: “What is your campus incident response system?”

We don’t ask it to be mean, we need to know. Most of the time we hear: “We don’t have one!”.

What if you had IDentifyED, How would you be able to use the IOT Monitoring and Alert System?

1Automate Response to specific alerts.

2Incident Response Alerts can identify the device and it’s specific location.

3Any device that can speak API can send IDentifyED Alerts.

4We are incorporating new IOT devices daily.

5Have a common incident response system for all users and all devices.

6Automate responses by alerts to specific groups of responders, like: Security or Facilities

7Create Triggers for specific alerts that can create both incidents and emergency broadcasts.

8Take Basic IOT Devices using our IDentifyED’s enterprise solution allows you to implement these devices  as if they are enterprise class devices.

IDentifyED’s IOT Monitoring and Alert Platform is AI Driven, so it’s active monitoring and active response! Tie in IDentifyED’s campus awareness and user engagement functions, and alerts are now much more intelligent, manful and your campus is much more secure!

We are NOT a IOT Device provider nor do we manufacture any hardware!

We just do not.

You can use almost any IOT device with our system.

We provide a simple API/message handler to receive the IOT alerts from the device.

We make your IOT Devices smarter, safer, better and more useful.

IOT Alerts need to trigger automated response.

Why don’t my IOT devices already have automated incident response?

5 Reasons

  1. They are mostly built for one or a set of devices from a single manufacturer.
  2. They are not complete campus solutions.
  3. They don’t have a Campus-wide incident response system.
  4. They don’t have campus-wide information, so they lack context to the implications of an alarm, some are not important and others are extremely important, the device only sends an “alarm”.
  5. Since they have little to no data and processes, an automated trigger without intelligence becomes a nuisance rather than a value.

One thing we are focused in on, is helping you create a common incident response and incident management (the documentation part) platform, so even if an IOT device has an incident response system…

How may different manufacturers’ incident response systems can you respond to?

We looked at IOT Devices not as a technology but asked the simple question:

“How would a campus use this technology and why?”

Once we had that we knew what we needed to build, and this is what we built:

  • User and Visitor profiles give context to IOT Alarms.
  • Our system creates a Device Registration
  • Each Device can have a detailed location assignment.
  • Each Device can be associated with a surveillance camera if it is not already one.
  • We provide context, so you know why a room is occupied, or not.
  • Officers and other responders get alerts right to their app.
  • IOT devices can have different sets of responders; like security, facilities, or maintenance.
  • IOT Triggers can be set for time of day, or a specific alert for the device.
  • It’s not uncommon based upon all the data you will have with IDentifyED to see additional value to IOT Devices that you would never have conceived to before. Your campus becomes not only safer but much smarter.

Ok, great, I love it! How do I convince my boss?

1Happy Campus Members: Your IOT devices often control things like temperature, humidity, light, air quality, access, cameras, etc… A smarter campus makes campus members happy!

2On-Line Process: You can configure and monitor all IOT devices via a common on-line interface.

3Focus staff on Safety/Security/Smarter Campus all staff can focus on the priorities: Your IOT devices are supposed to make your campus smarter and safer, IDentifyED creates context for your staff so that they can do their jobs better with the information and alerts from the IOT devices.

4Convert Simple IOT Devices to enterprise-class solutions. Many IOT devices are really just simple sensors. That’s fine, great even, but with IDentifyED those simple sensors now provide their data to a world-class enterprise platform that allows you campus greater safety and smarter solutions.

5Better Security. What would it mean to automate your response to IOT Devices? How much better and quicker would your security be?

624 Hour Monitoring. With time of day triggers and an IOT device can provide insight or simply just log an alert for your staff to look at later.

7Create a Smarter Campus. Our IOT monitoring connects all the alerts to all the user and community interaction, now a simple device provides context for the alert. Think about it… You don’t know that right now.

8Improved Incident Response, Incident Documentation, Accident Documentation, and Fine Documentation. Your team has new tools to do their job better, that’ll make the boss look better!

Leveraging IDentifyEd’s Complete IOT Monitoring and Alerts.

IDentifyED Campus Management API Library

IDentifyEd has a large library of APIs so that 3rd parties with the proper credentials can interact with IDentifyED.  The Auto/Vehicle Management System APIs allow data interaction with 3rd party data sources and applications, the ability to query user-vehicle information and other data points in order to provide a smarter and safer campus.

IDentifyED’s Visitor Management the next evolution in campus security.

Visitor Management is not a new concept, as a matter of fact it may be one of the very first processes that were established 1000s of years ago.

However, the ability to manage and monitor a visitor with a paperless system as they make a visit, the ability to verify whether a visitor has any issues with their criminal record in a way that does not expose the visitor or the enterprise with privacy risks is new.

These significant changes are the difference between allowing a visitor to make a monitored and managed visits with visitor validation on to your campus and allowing a sex offender free range to your students.

What is holding you back from License Plate Recognition Integration at your campus? What excuses will work?

  • You have LPR Camera already but they just create a log that almost never gets checked.
  • You have too many issues managing all the mundane vehicle paperwork to see that all of this basically goes away with IDentifyED
  • The campus members love to wait in line to register their vehicle they see it as a great way to meet people.
  • You don’t want to know who is driving a vehicle on campus, ignorance is bliss.
  • If someone should not be on campus, you should learn the good old fashion way with a scream or panic.
  • No one cares what is going on in your parking lots all hours of the day and night.
