Bell system for school

Bell system for school

Bell system for school

Is it possible to interface a bell system (software based system for changing classes) in a school with the BCM.

They are already using the paging port on the BCM for regular external paing speakers (Bogen) so this would have to work in conjuction with that.

Has anyone done this kind of set up in a school system??


RE: Bell system for school

I have never done a software interface if that is what you are looking for.
I do it this way:
External paging amp usually has more than one input. Buy a bell tone generator and connect to the amp. Bell system (computer)needs contact to activate bell tone generator which "pages" bell tone.
The funniest one is the school where the alarm clock rings; the secretary uses the telephone to do a normal page and rings a bell near the mouthpiece!
Good luck
