Teachers are often the first contact in an on-campus emergency and need to be equipped with the best technology to promote safety and security.
It’s important schools take safety seriously and stay up-to-date with campus safety standards. Implementing security systems can be tricky, which is why TeachLogic® developed a “security alert” feature integrated into its classroom audio systems.
The “security alert” function is activated with our Sapphire™ (IRT-60) or Ovation™ (OM-10) pendant-style wireless microphone. When pushed and held for three seconds, the microphone wirelessly transmits a “security alert” signal to its associated amplifier/receiver. This amplifier/receiver directs that signal to a rear-panel contact closure that acts as a switch—it closes when activated by the amplifier/receiver as part of an emergency response system (ERS).
Our technology allows you to send a “security alert” signal to your main administration office through the intercom.
This is all accomplished very easily with the TeachLogic® system. It’s a simple two-conductor wire connection between the contact closure of the TeachLogic® amplifier and the wall-mounted intercom call button panel. We are simply creating “short” across-the-call button terminals that would then normally send the signal from the call button panel down the intercom lines from the classroom to the main administration office.
Any TeachLogic® system will function well in a classroom setting. More importantly, TeachLogic® is committed to student and faculty safety. For more information on any of our products, visit our website at: https://teachlogic.com/.
Are you seeking compliance with Alyssa’s Law or a similar school safety requirement? If so, you likely have many questions about how to meet the requirements of this critical legislation that addresses the issue of law enforcement response time when a life-threatening emergency occurs.
Because time equals life.
Alyssa’s Law is named after Alyssa Alhadeff, a 14-year-old who was murdered in Parkland, Florida. The tragedy spurred her parents—councilman Ilan Marc Alhadeff and Lori Alhadeff—to advocate for change in gun laws as well as school safety measures. In particular, they wanted to ensure schools had a plan in place to alert law enforcement during an emergency, and they were not required to wait for police response via 911 call centers.
In 2018, Florida Governor Rick Scott signed into law legislation requiring all schools to install silent panic alarms directly linked to law enforcement agencies. These alarms are intended to be used by students who need help but cannot call out due to fear or other factors (e.g., being held against their will).
TeachLogic® security systems will put you in compliance with Alyssa’s Law and keep your students safe.
We offer a customizable, affordable solution that meets all of your school’s needs. Our software is easy to use and takes less than an hour to set up, so you can start using it right away. Keep your campus safe with TeachLogic®.

Our flagship audio system is the ultimate audio system for a classroom.
It comes ready to support both in-person and hybrid learning with two-channel receivers that allow the simultaneous use of two wireless infrared microphones. It also comes with our Sapphire™ pendant.
The Matrix™ is ideal for any room where the amplifier needs to be out of sight and/or in a vault for security. It connects to the same ceiling sensor and speakers as our other user-friendly systems.
The Spectrum™ is our most powerful infrared classroom audio system for use in larger gathering areas or in a room where you need more than four speakers.
The Spectrum™ is ideal for classrooms, auditoriums, and other large spaces where you need to fill the room with sound. It has 20 speakers and can be used with the entire Spectrum™ line of wireless microphones.
The Ovation™ uses special DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) radio
technology to wirelessly receive audio, making it perfect for any size or type of classroom. With four inputs, two outputs, and two
mic channel receivers, the OA-50 can integrate various media devices and simultaneously use two wireless microphones to
supplement your presentation material for added student engagement..
