Anaheim, California (February 7, 2011) - Extron Electronics announces that its VoiceLift® voice amplification system, specifically developed for K-12 classrooms, includes an instant alert option. The instant alert feature on the VoiceLift pendant microphone enables the teacher to request assistance with the push of a button. The feature triggers an integrated relay that may be used with a variety of notification systems. In classrooms equipped with an Extron MediaLink® Controller, the instant alert option can be configured to send an email to school officials and safety authorities. Instant alert can also interface with third party alarm, security camera, mass notification, and other systems.
