The installation will begin in early January 2023, and we could not be more excited that this world-class institute has selected TS&L to be an integral part of their safety program. Every tower we sell is equipped with our self-monitoring software that reports back daily; the University's new emergency blue light towers will be fully equipped with our industry-leading mass notification speaker systems atop each tower additionally as well as an integrated HD camera that only Knightscope can bring you from a wireless solution. Additionally, the towers on the University of Tennessee’s campus will proudly showcase their recognizable, bold orange school color. President of TS&L Dr. Cecile Nguyen comments, “Having University of Tennessee join our family is an honor and we are prepared to serve them with the best lifeline safety solutions to making their University a safe place.”

Founded in 1794, two years before Tennessee became the 16th state, it is the flagship campus of the University of Tennessee system, with ten undergraduate colleges and eleven graduate colleges. It hosts more than 30,000 students from all 50 states and more than 100 foreign countries on it’s 910 acres historical property.

A message on safety from UT President Randy Boyd

“The safety of our students, faculty and staff is our number one priority. There is no greater responsibility. As such, we must do our part to ensure a safe and secure environment at each of our campuses and institutes. This means we have a tremendous responsibility to be up-to-date on the newest safety protocols and to be vigilant is identifying potential hazards. We are committed to doing just that.”

At TS&L we believe that campus safety is not just about being well-lit; it's about having the right lighting solutions in place. Emergency Blue Light Towers offer more than illumination; they are part of a comprehensive safety strategy. Our K-1 Blue light towers are equipped with advanced technology that allows for remote monitoring and control. This means that campus security personnel can respond more effectively to emergency calls and even provide assistance remotely when needed. These towers can be seamlessly integrated into your campus security system. They can serve as emergency communication points that connect directly to campus security or local law enforcement, ensuring a swift response in critical situations.
