Hundreds of schools and districts use FrontRow Conductor to keep their campuses running efficiently and securely. When used with ezRoom or Juno Connect, schools save money by leveraging the classroom audio systems for paging and intercom. Juno Connect even allows teachers to call the office just by saying "Intercom"!

And, Conductor allows schools to meet modern building requirements by providing different instructions and control actions for different emergency scenarios.
