CareHawk, a foremost authority in Life Safety Communication solutions, proudly presents its latest innovation, Spotlight. This software suite is set to redefine the landscape of mass notifications and emergency responses within educational settings.

Enhancing the CH2000IP and CH1000 platforms, Spotlight is engineered to refine emergency communication procedures across school districts, facilitating seamless daily interactions between individual schools and their district offices. The introduction of Spotlight aims to bolster the safety and operational efficiency of educational environments for both staff and students.

Rami Michael, CEO of CareHawk, remarked: “With Spotlight, we address the growing need to automate and connect school emergency response, at the local school level, between schools in proximity to each other, as well as district offices and first responders. We understand that seconds count and lives can be saved when emergency response is immediate, automated, and reaches all the right people at the right time. That’s the challenge we have addressed with Spotlight.”

Spotlight heralds a suite of innovative functionalities that are set to revolutionise school safety protocols and communication systems. Among its standout features is the integration of multisystem capabilities within the CH2000IP and CH1000 Platforms. This enables the execution of immediate priority announcements across various zones within a district from any linked site. It also grants school administrators the ability to conduct intercom calls to any connected endpoint or administrative telephone, significantly improving communication within and across school boundaries.

A pivotal aspect of Spotlight’s life safety innovation is its automation of lockdown procedures. What once necessitated a series of urgent phone calls and manual coordination is now streamlined into a single-button operation. This automation extends to neighbouring schools, district offices, and emergency services, ensuring a swift response in critical moments.

Furthermore, Spotlight introduces a centralized system for managing calendars and bell schedules, greatly enhancing administrative efficiency by allowing updates to be made remotely from a central district office, thus negating the need for direct on-site intervention.

Schools that have previously invested in the CH1000 system can leverage Spotlight’s benefits by incorporating a CH2000IP module, gaining access to advanced features such as live communication and centralized schedule management.

Rami Michael added: “Enabling thousands of our CH1000 school customers to enhance their existing investment, while offering a clear migration path to the future of true IP-based technology, was a top priority for us. Our customer-centric innovation roadmap and industry-leading engineering capabilities set us apart in the marketplace. Our holistic approach to emergency response and everyday communications empowers our schools to navigate the increasingly complex future of life safety communications.

“By significantly expanding the communication choices accessible to educational institutions, this integration will improve their capacity to respond successfully to various events.”
