SCHOOLS BANKING ON RFID ATTENDANCE SYSTEM WITH SMS FOR STUDENTS’ SAFETY

school1One of the main concerns parents around the world have are the safety of their children. In the past few decades, school shootings and attacks have risen to an all-time high. Since 2003, there have been 233 school shootings with more than half of them taking place at a k-12 school. In addition, there are many occasions where strangers are able to go into a school and check out a child they aren’t the parent to. According to Poynter.org, most children are abducted by someone they know, an estranged parent, or other relative.

 

These alarming statistics can be difficult to digest as parents send their children off to school. But luckily, a new attendance system is looking to make school check-ins and check-outs safer. Here is some information about the School Pixa attendance system, advantages of it, and some additional information about School Pixa:

HOW IT WORKS

School Pixa is introducing an RFID Attendance System for school students that sends in/out text messages to parents. The company is a leading manufacturer of GPRS-based plug and play RFID School Attendance Devices.

 

The RFID Students Attendance System is a wireless RFID-based automatic student attendance system that offers a complete solution to student attendance monitoring. Students would carry their RFID-based ID card to school. When they get to school, they would show the card to the device reader and be logged as “in.” As soon as they are “clocked in,” the parents are immediately sent a text message that says their child has arrived at school.

 

The system is cloud based, so no extra computers, internet, or LAN writing is required to implement it.

 

ADVANTAGES OF THIS SYSTEM

There are a ton of advantages to a system like this. The first is obviously that you will know that your child has arrived safely to school. This is a sc3comfort for those students who are carpooling with a friend or who ride the bus. There is peace of mind in knowing that your child arrived safely.

 

This can also help deter students who skip school. If they know that their parent will be automatically alerted when they get to school and that notification is never sent, the parent will know the child has skipped out on class.

 

Lastly, the system is a great way to make sure students are not taken from a school illegally by someone who doesn’t have permission to contact the child. This could be an estranged relative or close family friend.

 

The system ultimately keeps children safe and accountable.
