School Intercom Systems

Serving Safer Schools Everyday And In Times Of Crisis

The CareHawk® suite of communication products keeps schools running smoothly and safely, so staff and students can focus on what’s important – learning.

Student and staff safety is the top prioity at any educational facility. It’s a fundamental requirement for a healthy and effective learning environment. That’s why we’re dedicated to developing life safety communication technologies that alert, inform and instruct staff and students through everyday activities and during emergency situations.

The CareHawk® CH1000(LT) ensures staff and students receive timely, clear, concise, and accessible emergency alerts and instructions with automated pre-recorded local security alerts, district wide alerts, visual display messaging, email alerts, classroom intercom, and paging. The CH1000(LT) also integrates with low voltage fire, video security, and access control systems.

The CH2000 Life Safety Communication Platform, in conjunction with MapAssist™, takes Orchard View Elementary from a slow and aging communication process into the future of schoolwide and districtwide communication.

Orchard View Elementary renovated their entire building. In this process, it was apparent that the aging Bogen MultiCom needed to be updated. One of our distributors, SVT, described CareHawk’s history and effectiveness in the K-12 market to the school; this included a demonstration from Technical Director Bill Kapp and Sales Engineer Kevin Patrick. With effectiveness and, most importantly, safety at the forefront of the school’s decision making process, CareHawk systems were chosen.

The school needed modern IP-based systems for everyday and emergency communication. In today’s climate, this cannot be put on the back burner or be given discounted importance.

“ It is absolutely paramount that classrooms are able to communicate with the front office. During emergencies, the front office needs to be able to send messages quickly. CareHawk® systems achieve and exceed these expectations. CareHawk® has become the standard of what school safety communication must be.”

– Tom Weissert
SVT Sales Representative

You’re in contorl with a PC based admin phone with graphical interface.

CareHawk Assistant™ is a graphic based admin phone interface for the CH1000 Saftey Communications Platform. Assitant™ runs on any Windows® based PC and is associated with a telephone connected to the CH1000. This associated telephone can be as simple as a single line set or a extension off of a local PBX/IPBX.

Initiate functions with a click of the mouse and pick up the phone to speak. Call-ins are graphically annunciated along with the caller ID information. Routine functions can be saved as a favorite onto the main screen to simplify access for individual users.

Zones on the fly can be created using Assitant™. Users can create a page zone on the fly and save it as a favorite thus extending the available 64 zones to unlimited zones. No need to remember room numbers. Using the graphical room icons allows for users to find locations with complicated hard to remember room numbers easily.


Increased safety in the classroom.

A network of CareHawk® Virtual Call Point software (VCall™) is part of the CH1000 Platform and provides school staff the ability to place a normal or emergency call using a PC. The VCall™ software resides on the computer desktop as a tool bar that is unobtrusive to the user but is easily and quickly accessible using a mouse.

Security in the classroom is increased with VCall™ simply due to the covert nature of a PC based call point. When an intruder enters a classroom the telephone is the obvious device to disable, followed by preventing anyone from going near the call switch on the wall. VCall™ becomes the hidden alarm button giving the teacher another means of communication.
