PA & Paging Over IP – Go Cable Free

An exciting development in Public Address Systems is PA/Paging over IP. To establish a PA over IP Paging System you can utilise and integrate with your existing VoIP network or create a standalone Ethernet set up just for your Paging System.

With PA over IP, the need for cables is removed, and with good planning, you can have PA anywhere. Speakers can be deployed wherever the network extends and enabled, allowing staff to put a call out over the public address system speakers via the telephone. They can be moved, added to or removed with ease. Speakers can be set up anywhere along the network, and deployed wirelessly, allowing speakers at remote building/s or site/s to be on the PA system.

Client Testimonials

Clients we have helped

“We’ve been able to zone the speakers so that we can either broadcast to every single speaker in the building or to a defined number of devices or zones.”

Stephen Witnall- University of Notre Dame

“From my point of view, ensuring the security of almost 700 pupils while on Channing premises is a huge responsibility. I’m delighted that we now have a lockdown system in place that allows me to discharge that obligation efficiently and safely.”

Our Most Asked Questions

Our building is within a quiet, safe area, why do we need a Lockdown System?

Ensuring the safety of pupils, staff and workers are of utmost importance, particularly given the current threat level in the UK, which is classified as ‘severe’. It’s important to remember that incidents are not always associated with criminal activity. A local community incident or civil disturbance can potentially jeopardise the safety of your school or workspace, and it is not limited to individuals who may pose a risk. It’s not unheard of incidents like dangerous dogs roaming loose or even an escaped bull running through an institution’s grounds. These two examples resulted in Lockdowns until local authorities could control the situation. There are also incidents like email hoaxes which recently, hundreds of schools across the country, including those in rural and semi-rural areas, have experienced. There are also potentially harmful environmental issues that should be considered. Events like nearby fires can result in smoke plumes or gas clouds, posing risks of air pollution due to chemical, biological, or radiological contaminants.

We have a lockdown procedure already in place, but we're now being told we need a system. What's the difference?

It’s important to know the difference between a Lockdown Procedure and a Lockdown System, and why it’s crucial to bring them together. A Lockdown Procedure is all about following specific actions, while a Lockdown System uses different tools and tech to improve communication and access control. The key components of a Lockdown System fall into two main categories: Communication and Access Control.

How do we decide what is needed in our Lockdown System?.

Every building has unique needs and requirements for its systems. The size of your building and your specific Lockdown Procedure will shape what you need, but there are a few common components in communication and access controls that you should have in place. We recommend that institutions consider any additional risk factors and let us conduct a site survey, with no obligation. This will give you a complete understanding of your current communication and security systems, as well as any resources that can be used as part of the system. Some assume that their fire alarm can be used to notify everyone in case of an emergency, but a fire alarm is meant for evacuation. With Lockdown Systems, you need to plan for the opposite – keeping students and staff inside. How you choose to communicate with your staff is up to you. You might prefer to email or send a text message, silently alerting only them so they can calmly communicate with the students or other employees and initiate the Lockdown Procedure. Ultimately, our Lockdown System is designed to fit your building or campus by taking into account your existing communication, security systems, and available resources. We’ll make sure to utilise everything already in place to create an effective system

Do these Lockdown Systems have the ability to adapt and be updated in the future once they are installed?

Absolutely, you can start with a basic Public-Address System that allows communication across the premises. These systems are scalable, so you can gradually move towards a fully integrated communication, access control, and surveillance system. It’s important to figure out what system would work best for your premises and your plan. This way, you’ll know the maximum protection for your students, staff or employees. As communication and technology continue to advance in the future, you can review your needs and make any necessary adjustments.

The Run, Hide, Tell guidance has brought safety advice into UK classrooms. But is it the right time to introduce additional potentially alarming information to our staff and students?

Definitely. It’s important to plan ahead and communicate with staff, students and employees rather than being caught off guard in a potentially dangerous situation. The police are now teaming up with experts to develop animated videos and lesson plans that will teach about terrorism safety for the first time. When students and employees watch these videos and have these lessons, one of their initial concerns will be the environment they’re in – their own building and grounds. In schools, teachers should be ready to have conversations with children about how they should act if there’s a potentially dangerous incident at school.
