|Schneider Electric will demonstrate how to monitor and control aspects of security and access control in schools|
At BSEC 2010
experts from global energy management specialist Schneider Electric
will run a series of unique on-stand "A Day in the Life of a School" demonstrations. These will show visitors how its integrated school security, energy management and building control solutions enhance the financial, operational and environmental performance of schools - and help boost pupils' performance levels by up to 30 percent.
The special "A Day in the Life of a School" mini ‘lessons' will give conference delegates and exhibition attendees a snapshot of the new and exciting possibilities available to schools using the latest energy management and building automation systems. The lessons will also demonstrate how easy it is to monitor and cost-effectively control vital aspects of a school - from enhanced energy management and carbon reduction measures, through to security, safety and access control.
Visitors to Schneider Electric's stand (508) will also discover how school authorities can take significant steps to meeting their carbon reduction commitments by following Schneider Electric's four steps to energy efficiency.
Schneider Electric draws upon the findings of reports that show that integrated security systems make pupils feel safe
From the start of the school day through to when the lights are switched off and throughout the night, Schneider Electric's building automation solutions are focused on delivering the optimal learning and operational environment within schools. Sophisticated but intuitive energy management systems continuously and cost-effectively control heating, lighting and ventilation according to the changing needs of staff and children, while security and access control solutions integrate pupil access and registration with automated absence alerts and cashless school meal payment options that take account of individual pupil's special dietary needs.
Schneider Electric's leadership in intelligent and highly energy-efficient, integrated building management and security solutions for the education sector is built on a unique, research-based understanding of the needs, concerns and behaviours of school users - especially children and their teachers.
As well as drawing upon the findings of two ‘Safety and Security in Schools' research reports 1 & 2 commissioned by Schneider Electric's buildings business (formerly known as TAC UK), the company's solutions also take account of numerous studies that show that the combination of fresh air, natural light, the right temperature and integrated security systems make pupils comfortable, feel safe and perform. One study by the International Centre for Indoor Environment and Energy, Technical University of Denmark (DTU), showed that pupils' performance went up by an average of 15 percent, and up to 30 percent, with improved climate control."Education authority representatives, school managers and building contractors who visit our stand at BSEC 2010 will see what a huge, positive impact an integrated security, energy management and building automation solution can have on financial, operational, environmental and pupil performance,"
