way, " says LaBenne, who keeps a close pulse on
new technologies that help provide safer, more
productive, learning environments. " When I
looked at a replacement paging system with
additional IP-enabled clocks, it got expensive
quickly. The alternative, IP endpoints with
speakers from AtlasIED, that could also display
the time, plus play audio for both paging and
bell schedules, turned out to be a more affordable
option. "
Another benefit: the IPX family of IP endpoints
could utilize the school building's existing
Ethernet network to derive power and distribute
audio and video.
" Because we wouldn't need to get power to
every IP speaker location, placement would be
easier and more flexible, " LaBenne explains.
" Speakers that required new cabling would
have made the project much more costly and
laborious - plus we'd be missing out on some
of the useful features bundled into AtlasIED's
IPX Series endpoints. "
LaBenne spent a few days outlining the
school's
communications needs,
identified
complementary software from Singlewire to
manage the messaging, and plotted positions
for a variety of IPX Series endpoints in classrooms,
hallways, gymnasiums, auditoriums,
and more. AtlasIED weather-resistant, vandal-proof
IP speakers were selected for exterior
spaces, ensuring that critical announcements
are heard during recess, football games and
other outdoor activities.
The IPX family of IP endpoints integrates
with existing Singlewire communications software
running on a Cisco server, so all it took for
the school district was some further licensing to
introduce additional security and communications
features to the new IP network.
Built-in flashers and display enhance school
communications further. For example, flashers
on each endpoint can illuminate in red
to convey an emergency situation - with or
without audible messaging. To simplify emergency
communications for staff, LaBenne
programmed one-button activation of prerecorded
messages for situations like shelter-inplace,
lockdown, lockout and all clear.
The AtlasIED/Singlewire pairing also allows
delivering routine, nonemergency announcements,
including bells throughout the school
day. The Singlewire software allowed LaBenne
to group-specific speakers and IP endpoints
together and create a bell schedule for each

zone. The schedule can be modified and audio
zones altered to reflect events like an early, campus-wide
dismissal due to inclement weather.
The solution's colored-coded visual messaging
enables the school to more effectively communicate
events - red for emergencies, green
for routine announcements, for example. At a
glance, students and staff understand the nature
of the message, enhancing safety protocols and
procedures dramatically for the school district.
In all, more than 200 IP speakers were deployed
throughout the 230,500-square-foot
building and several outdoor locations. In hallways,
dual-sided IP-DDS endpoints were selected
to allow students to see and hear messages
no matter which direction they were walking.
Surface-mounted IP-SDMF endpoints with
integrated flashers, meanwhile, went into most
classrooms, offices and gymnasiums. To deliver
audible messages to restrooms and stairwells,
LaBenne used IP-SM speakers, and for outdoor
areas, some existing analog speakers were
replaced with IP-HVP speakers.
For the few existing outdoor analog speakemployed

gateway that converts digital audio signals
to analog so they can relay the same audible
notifications as the IPX endpoints. From
