Paging and Intercoms

The intercom and paging system is a significant factor in the daily communications of your school, so it’s important to ensure that school is equipped with a system that guarantees smooth and clear communication for your faculty, staff, and students.


Bell Schedule

Create and arrange the bell schedule according to the needs of your schools. Our team deploys a bell controller that gives you complete and total control over the school day, improving the ease-of-use over the complicated traditional analog bell systems.

Common Challenges Districts Face When It Comes To Their Paging, Bell, And Clock Systems

When Bells And Clocks Are Out Of Sync, It Creates Confusion

A special schedule or assembly period shouldn’t lead to students and staff wondering when the bells will ring. But it’s actually all too common that this is exactly what happens when bells and clocks aren’t all synced properly. 

This is all the more vital in schools and districts where multiple buildings are involved or where specialty buildings like gyms, libraries, or technical education areas are in the mix. 

In addition, if all areas throughout the campus aren’t completely aligned with the current date, time, and schedule, this can also disrupt early departures for students with out-of-school appointments and medication timing for students who need to visit the nurse at a particular time each day. 

Eastern DataComm helps you get everyone on the same page. With our solutions, keep your clocks in sync with modern, efficient solutions that help you maintain accurate time and make adjustments with ease.


Aging Paging And Intercom Systems Make It Hard To Hear You Loud And Clear

Muffled words or amplified background noise can lead to confusing announcements and pages. When every message matters, especially in the event of an emergency, you simply cannot settle for unintelligible, unstable communications technologies that are outdated or inconsistent in their performance.

The sound quality of your school’s intercom exchanges and paging messages needs to be crystal clear so nothing gets lost in translation.

From the typical, “Mrs. Smith to Room 215…” to the more vital emergency messages related to fire drills, evacuations, and active shooter events or lockdowns, you need to know your systems are working consistently and efficiently to relay messages and keep your school day moving along without issue. 

Our paging and intercom systems provide crystal clear audio for effortless communication.

Outdated Systems Cost More And Take More Effort To Repair

If your current system requires manual adjustment for things like special schedules, assemblies, or daylight savings, you and your staff are wasting valuable time. And, if your current bell system is not up to date with the latest technology, repairs may grow even more difficult and costly as time goes on.

Aging Bells, Clocks, Intercom, And Paging Systems Impact School Safety And Security

Another key consideration when it comes to your paging, intercom, bells, and clocks is the issue of school safety. Older or outdated paging systems, intercoms, and clocks may not be able to deliver messages clearly, synchronize with other systems, or offer proper guidance to those in the building.

This can lead to slow, inefficient, and even non-existent response times when it comes to emergencies: These situations could range from severe weather warnings that may require evacuation, to addressing potential intruder alerts like active shooter or lockdown events, to alerting students and teachers regarding urgent parent pickups that need to happen as soon as possible.

Even routine drills can become more challenging if your bells, clocks, and paging systems are not aligned or are too outdated to communicate with one another properly.

At Eastern DataComm, we can integrate our lockdown and emergency notification system and continuous monitoring service (LENS + OPTICS) with paging, video surveillance, and access control systems. This comprehensive approach ensures that your technology is always working to protect your students, staff, faculty, and visitors.
