So what can you do with IP Network Audio Systems?

IP Network Audio

Stop unwanted activity in its tracks.
A IP network audio system is the perfect addition
to a video-based security installation. Perimeter
protection is a great example of this. Imagine if
a potential intruder climbs a fence. The camera
alerts a security guard to give a warning to the
intruder using the audio system, “We can see you,
you’re trespassing.” More often than not, this type
of warning is sufficient, preventing the need for
additional security measures.

Public Address
Broadcast to single or multiple zones.
A IP network audio system answers the need for different kinds of informative messages and updates in environments such as schools, retail stores, hotels and public buildings. For example, you can use it to make a live announcement calling someone to a specific area, such as a colleague to the clothing department. To make a scheduled announcement about the start of the school day. Or to issue a live or triggered announcement during an emergency.

Background music
Play music how and where you want to.
A IP network audio system can support retail stores
and hotels, for example, in creating the perfect
ambiance background music. You benefit from
pre-set volume and music choices as well as both
central and remote control for easy management.
And you can choose to combine background music
with scheduled and live announcements for the
best possible customer experience.
