A school bell system can improve classroom teaching! Systems are important for any type of organization. Systems allow us to achieve success from our operations with a minimal amount of time and money spent. A School Day needs to have a bell system that allows the educational day to be completed in the most efficient manner so that every minute of teaching time is used in the most efficient manner.

In today’s world, there is truly no reason for not to have a bell tone or physical bell to signal the start and end of each class period. When teachers can relay and audible sound to get a class started and to end a class they will be able to use their available time for teaching wisely.

Technology has made bells systems easy to install and to use. There are mainly two ways to initiate a bell sound. One way is a physical bell and the second is playing a bell tone at a scheduled time over a school speaker system. The result of both methods is the same. A bell schedule for the school day.

If you have a speaker system you could use a network tone generator to play a tone over the PA system. The network tone generator has scheduling software that is easy to use. All that is required is a windows-based pc to operate the software.

The software only requires you to enter your school bell class changes and to save the file. The tone generator is wired to your line in on your PA speaker system. The device has several trusted internet time sources pre-loaded into the software. You can use those sites as an accurate source or time or if you have an internal NTP server you can put the IP address of your server into the software.

A second way to have a reliable school bell system. The physical bells are wired to a controller’s relays. The relays turn the bells on and off at the scheduled time. Innovation Wireless offers two way to ring physical bells.

One way is a network relay controller. This is a LAN based product that is connected to your Ethernet. The scheduling software that is included with the device is where you would input your school bell schedule. The schedule is then downloaded to your controller. You will wire you bell or bells to the controller. The controller then turns on or off the bells the appropriate time. It is a quick and easy way to have a reliable and accurate bell system in your school.

The second method is a wireless bell system. A wireless bell system still requires the bells to be wired to a controller but the controller receives accurate and reliable time from a transmitter. The transmitter broadcast accurate GPS or NTP time. Accurate and reliable time assured you that the bell system will ring at the correct time.

The advantage of having the transmitter is that you can easily combine wireless school clocks to the system. The transmitter’s broadcast will keep the clocks and bell system accurate 24 hours a day seven days a week.

In summary, today’s school bell technology offers you many different methods to affordability have a bell system to improve the operational efficiency at a K-12 school.

Hospital, Schools and Businesses are now able to have synchronized clocks using their existing Ethernet networks without the cost to install electrical outlets.

InnovationWireless.com announced the launch of their Power over Ethernet, (POE) clock line.  Innovation Wireless’ POE product line is focused on helping organizations manage and operate their entities. Now no matter what the size of the organization they can enjoy the benefits of a synchronized clock system in their facility.  The advantages of clocks displaying the same time all the time and automatically adjusting for daylight saving time has just become easier.

InnovationWireless.com a synchronized timing and communication company based in Culver City, CA, has over forty years experience in the manufacturing of wireless clocks and clock parts.   As an innovator in synchronized timing, their clocks have had a positive impact on organizations throughout the world.  In the United States you will find their products in hundreds of school districts and many well known names such as University of Texas, Good Samaritan Hospital and Amazon to name a few.  Outside the USA, Innovation Wireless has distributors in United Kingdom, Australia, Middle East, Singapore and Hong Kong.

When focusing on saving money and time products need to be engineered to provide the most value for the dollar.  Engineers do their best to find that balance between the cost of manufacturing and affordability.  This is where the years of experience becomes a factor.  Experience is the catalyst in manufacturing a product that is built for longevity but at an affordable cost.

There is no need to put a synchronized clock system in place just to have trouble with it three or four years later.  The objective is to install a clock system and have it work day in and day out without any maintenance for many years.

A POE clock system allows for years of synchronized timing throughout a facility.  Additionally, by using an Existing Ethernet network a company does not need to run electrical power.  All they need is an Ethernet connection.  The Ethernet provides complete control of the clock and the power to operate the clock.

The POE clock software residing on the computer network is able to control every clock on the system.  You can group clocks for specific applications.  For example, in a hospital, patient rooms can be scheduled to have their POE LED Digital Clocks dimmed at a certain time for the comfort of the patients.  Then in the morning the clocks would be scheduled to resume the clock’s normal brightness.  POE clocks provide you this type of control.

POE is an IEEE standard.  The standards written by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers are established to ensure interoperability between different manufacturers.  The POE clock specifications should state that the clock is in compliance with IEEE.  .
