BOSTON, May 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CIMCON Lighting, the leading global provider of Intelligent Lighting and Smart City technologies, announced today the launch of its Blue Light Emergency Mobile App for university and college campuses.
Student safety is a primary concern across campuses today along with rapid communication with campus security to provide assistance during an emergency. CIMCON's Blue Light Emergency Mobile App is an easy-to-use application designed to improve campus safety by letting students connect with security personnel at the touch of a button on their iPhone® or Android™ devices. When a student, faculty or staff member activates the app, nearby street lights equipped with CIMCON's intelligent street light controls will come up to full brightness if dimmed and then blink rapidly. An audio alert and GPS route information to the student will also appear on campus security mobile phones. When campus security staff acknowledge receipt of a student's request, a notification is sent back to the student letting them know that help is on its way.
"For colleges and universities, the Blue Light app is a key step in improving student safety," said Anil Agrawal, CIMCON's CEO. "Our Blue Light app allows colleges to remove antiquated and often non-functioning campus Blue Light systems and replace it with a robust system that provides greater student access, immediate emergency location information, and comprehensive reports showing areas of possible security concern. CIMCON's intelligent street light controls provide many other benefits including management and health monitoring of campus lighting assets and adaptive dimming schedules to conserve energy and reduce operational costs."
