I have a job working in the front desk at the local high school.
I entirely graduated from here various years ago & it is kind of fun to be back in a different type of capacity.
A huge number of things have changed since I was a student- obviously! – 1 of them being the school’s security system. The principal was explaining to myself and others that this high school is protected by IoT security & the access control unit replacement that was added just last year. That all sounds Greek to me, and later on I asked the principal what he meant by all of that. He explained that IoT (internet of things) technology gives the school to have integrated building automation- such as a building access control system- that makes it easier to keep the building secure. These types of building automation solutions became super popular after the rise in the horrendous school shootings across the country became genuinely prevalent. This IoT security will allow us to keep the doors shut tight if someone approaches & rings the smart doorbell and we truly do not know them; The two of us also have the ability to lock down any door in the building all through the automatic logic associated with the building access control system. What is really neat is that both of us do not even need to be at the front desk to take advantage of any aspect of the building access control system. Through my smartphones, both of us are able to access the IoT building controls. Having our school’s services retrofitted to become a smart building has truly made working here think much safer & i know that the parents & students think the exact same way!
