Conductor

A robust IP-based control and school communications solution that covers your campus.

Making Schools better-informed,
on time, and safer

Whether it’s establishing a schedule for routine commands or managing paging, bells, intercom, or an emergency response,  Conductor empowers you to communicate clearly and to keep the situation under control with a single control platform that lets schools do far more than ever before.

Conductor Admin Station

Complete front office station for Conductor communication. Designed for easy touch access to key functions like school paging and intercom, emergency alerts, and answering calls, the Conductor Admin Station works with the DRS-5000 server and FrontRow audio IP endpoints on the network to provide effortless communication for schools and districts. Conductor allows office managers and administrators to make school announcements, intercom calls, trigger emergency alerts, set bell schedules, stream music, create zones, and more.

Conductor Features

A properly-programmed and -implemented Conductor system lets you control or communicate practically anything across the school.

Zoning

Identify zones in your buildings with a few mouse clicks — say, all 3rd grade classrooms, the second floor hallways in the science building, and so on. Then make pages to any or all of those zones over your network. If you one day need to change zones to reflect a new arrangement of classrooms, Conductor makes it a job of a few seconds — no need to call in a tech to rewire your PA.

Messaging

Pre-record a daily message from the principal to play at a scheduled time, leaving the principal free to be engaging with staff and students elsewhere on campus.

Scheduling

Establish your standard bell schedules with a variety of tones and set them to run automatically. If you need a late start day due to weather, for example, it takes only a few clicks to shift the schedule.

Emergency planning

As part of your emergency planning, program Conductor with a powerful alarm button for the situations you want to be prepared for. For example, hitting the button for a tornado alert can play a distinct audio alarm to all zones, display an evacuation map on all projectors and digital signage, and play clear, pre-recorded instructions over the speakers. For a lock-down, with a single command, you can simultaneously lock all doors against an intruder, issue an automated announcement about what’s happening, send digital alerts off-campus, and more.
