IP Paging for Public Address (PA) & Emergency Notification – Door / Gate Entry Intercom & Access Control

K12 schools, colleges and universities require open standard network-based technology for building and campus communications to integrate with hosted / cloud or premise-based VoIP telephone systems. Leveraging the UC environment allows maximum flexibility for any telephone or device to efficiently meet common application requirements.

  • Public address (PA)
  • Bell scheduling
  • Safety / security / emergency notification alerting
  • Playing music
  • Entrance communication at secure entrance doors, gates and other access points


Algo IP endpoints are 3rd party SIP compliant. These devices eliminate the limitations of an ATA or FXS port, and provide convenient web-based network management and supervision. All the endpoints are multicast scalable, and can be deployed to cover any size building or campus. Common central provisioning protocols are supported, as well as TLS and SRTP.

The Algo paging portfolio includes a variety of Wideband HD Voice talkback speakers (wall / ceiling / horn), speaker-clock endpoints, paging adapters, strobe lights and push buttons. These endpoints support applications for voice paging and emergency alerting, as well as bell scheduling for automating tones and announcements. Algo doorphone / intercoms are audio and video capable for visitor communication and secure entry using any telephone or device.

Algo products are UL/CSA, FCC and CE certified. They also meet the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standard, ANSI/NEMA SB 40-2015 Communications Systems for Life Safety in Schools. This standard covers the application, installation, location, performance, and maintenance of school emergency communications systems and their components.
