School Building PA, Intercom, and Security Systems
Schools should be a place where students can grow, learn, and most importantly – feel safe. Thompson Electronics Company in Peoria and Naperville provide mission-critical educational ecosystems that combine school sound systems, intercom and security systems. Those along with software, video surveillance and service help schools manage both everyday and critical emergencies. TEC provides these custom solutions for all parts of the school including theaters and auditoriums, gyms, athletic and football fields, stadiums and entire school integrations. When technologies communicate and learn from each other, safety and performance improves across the entire school. Intelligence advances outwards, giving you eyes and ears where you’ve never had them before. Information flows where it’s needed, from surveillance cameras and emergency notification systems to intercom and PA systems. These systems make what you need to know clear.
