New ActionAlert for schools enhances school safety!

One of the more useful solutions for improving school safety is integrating a low cost wireless call button as a part of a school intercom system. Linear Corporation is a leader in wireless personal protection devices.  These systems are efficient, flexible, and affordable. That is why many schools are interfacing Linear control receivers for access to the classroom PA system.  The principal and front office staff can use a wireless call button, such as the one shown at the right, to alert the entire school at the push of a button. When activated, a distinct tone is sounded in call class rooms to signal the need to go into a lock down condition.

These systems can be easily connected to most school intercom systems at very reasonable cost but they are limited in capability. That's where our new ActionAlert system for schools comes into the picture!  With the same pendant transmitter, a school official can send the lock down code, PLUS sending a voice message to School Resource officers and/or local law enforcement officers PLUS sending a text message to PC's, cell phones, or Tablets at dispatch, adjoining schools, neighboring law enforcement agencies, even members of the local fire department!
