Radio communication for Schools and education

A two-way radio is now used in a multitude of different industries with great success. One of these industries is education, with radios for schools becoming commonplace up and down the country as communication is paramount and members of staff are able to contact each other with ease to ensure the safety of pupils. Radios (or walkie talkies) are a tool used by schools, colleges and universities to enhance the security of the premises and ensure it continues to run as smoothly as possible. As such an important aspect of school infrastructure, we have outlined this guide to help schools to decide how they should use radios to continue the smooth running of their infrastructure.

Why do you need radios in your school, college or university?

When commotion occurs and events are in need of urgent attention, you need your radio to be your main tool in assessing the situation and in providing support. Sometimes this means communication beyond the transmitting of voices, much like the traditional walkie-talkie, can be useful. Features such as vibration allow you to know if someone is trying to contact you, even in loud areas. This can be extremely beneficial and aids in communication. Some two-way radios, such as the various analog signaling types available on the Hytera PD705, further enhance the communication available between devices. Another common issue in radio is an oversaturation of the signaling channels. Our advances devices feature both analog and digital modes to reduce this issue. In our experience dual modes have been especially useful in larger schools, as different faculties and sections of the school can switch between themselves and communicating with the entire school with ease.

Other features we would recommend:

  • Digital Voice Clarity
  • Man down function
  • Voice Record
  • Location Tracking

These features can make security much easier in schools and can be the difference you need in your school to enhance security and safety to staff and students alike. For further peace of mind, we also offer additional accessories such as earpieces to allow discrete and clear communication.

Tracking System

Many of our radios include GPS tracking to carry out radio tracking. This allows users to keep track of the location of radios, and therefore those assigned them. This can be extremely beneficial for members of security and allows a faster response in times of emergency.

Applications in Schools and education

Typical applications of our radios in schools:

  • Protection of staff in both classrooms and outside of the classroom
  • Safety of students
  • Security and maintenance
  • Coordination on-campus activities and the management of events and excursions
  • Incident reporting
