Good communications are paramount in helping school administrators, teachers and support staff deliver on the teaching, safety, and welfare experience to pupils. A reliable communications investment can give staff the freedom to focus on giving students the attention they need in their environment – learning and development.
Staff can be immediately reached anytime, anywhere on the school premises to ensure students and visitors are directed, monitored, or assisted with little disruption.
Private radio systems provide much more reliable mobile coverage than cellular networks with high levels of availability. PoC broadband communications can be used to extend the network.
Two-way radio systems can ensure reliable coverage in case of any threats or unpredictable situations that would usually disrupt other forms of communications such as PA systems or mobile phones due to adverse weather conditions or power cuts. Older school buildings with thick concrete walls, and old infrastructure sometimes make it difficult for the signals of weaker radios to penetrate. Hytera has the best-fit solution no matter the environment.
Hytera offers two-way radios with alarm features to safeguard students and staff across the school campus or site. Security can be alerted to attend to any dangers from intruders, visitor disputes or even at times of student altercations. Radio systems can also connect directly to emergency services when situations escalate, via a variety of safety features that can be added, so in addition to emergency calling, staff can also send automatic safety alerts to other staff.
A variety of safety features can be added to radios, so in addition to emergency calling they can send automatic safety alerts meaning university staff are better protected.
Radios come with an emergency ‘panic’ button, which can be programmed to send an alarm to the command centre and to other radios, along with the person’s ID.
The Man Down alarm is triggered if a user has fallen over and the radio is horizontal. The Lone Worker alarm is sent if the radio is inactive beyond a set time.
