The CareHawk District Wide communication server provides school or facility staff the means to broadcast lockdown, live pages, emergency pages, or any pre-recorded announcement across a group of facilities or schools in a district. Hospitals and other facilities can broadcast to an entire campus or across a group of facilities.
Alerts software makes it as simple as a few mouse clicks. Pages are broadcast in a store-and-forward process. Receiving schools can confirm the message was broadcast. Activities can be tracked later with the built-in logging functions along with a recording of the page that can be accessed by district personnel at a later date.
The District Wide Server interfaces with a facility’s LAN/WAN to communicate with the CH1000 Life Safety Communication Platform and Symbiont(-1B) installed in schools throughout a district. The District Wide Server supervises all of the CH1000/Symbiont(-1B) systems within the district and alerts users to network failures via email and visual queues. The District Wide Server manages emergency paging priorities in the event a local emergency page is being broadcast at the same time as a non-emergency district-wide page.
The CareHawk Symbiont module is used with the District Wide Server to connect legacy paging/intercom systems by converting IP audio signals into analog audio signals. This provides a school district with mass notification capability without the need to replace existing infrastructure. Each Symbiont module is supervised by the CareHawk District Wide Server to ensure performance.
