Network Audio Devices - Connect small devices in each classroom to play school bells and pages or connect network devices to amplifiers to provide audio for larger areas.
Analog Phone System Paging - Schedule audio pages and bells over a phone system using an analog port on the phone system.
SIP Phone System Paging - Schedule audio pages and bells over IP phone systems that support SIP endpoints.
Public Address Systems - Connect an audio cable from the PC to your school's PA system and play school bells over the existing public address system. Low cost and easy-to-program alternative to mechanical and electronic school bell timers.
Network and USB Relay Controllers - Control existing school and factory bell systems and devices such as as sirens, strobe lights, signal lights, and more. Perfect as a replacement for hard to program and manage mechanical and electric timers.
Stand-Alone PCs - Play audio files locally on a PC. Great for simple reminders or for setting bells for a specific classroom. This configuration is often used in schools which have each classroom on a specific schedule.
