ControlKom IP Paging
ControlKom from Atlas Sound is an exciting new IP based paging technology solution that provides nearly unlimited flexibility for paging and notification systems in K-12 education, collegiate, health care, manufacturing and corporate applications.
With ControlKom, live, prerecorded or ad hoc messages along with control data may be sent over existing or new multicast enabled local area networks to Atlas Sound IP Speaker and zone controller end points powered by AF compliant POE switches (or local DC power). This software / hardware combination provides a true “one wire” network audio solution reducing the initial cost and eliminating long term maintenance of separate paging / intercom systems. ControlKom employs standard TCP/IP network protocols and DHCP for speaker IP address assignment making it the industry’s first true IP based paging solution.
ControlKom is easily interfaced with any VoIP or analog PBX phone systems (analog extension output or ATA required). Configuration of the server based ControlKom software is accomplished via an intuitive web interface. This interface allows the administrator to easily define user privledges, loudspeaker zones, pre recorded messages and other system. ControlKom then provides the user with voice prompt instructions for message type (live or ad hoc) and desired broadcast zone destination.

- Get your message out quickly and reliably – whether recorded or live, it can be broadcast in less than 20 seconds to an unlimited number of IP speakers, computer screens, and overhead paging systems
- Network time server synchronized clocks – Require no maintenance or budget for additional hardware; perfect for daylight savings and schedule changes
- Power over Ethernet (PoE) – Speakers can be placed anywhere network access is available
System Control & Security
- Programming, configuration and system supervision can be administered from multiple locations via the Graphical User Interface (GUI) from any secure LAN location or outside the network through VPN
- Multi-user management, configurable security access level for bell scheduling, notifications, changing zone assignments, etc…
- Facilitates communication with campus personnel – in K-12 applications, district personnel can broadcast to the entire district, campus, building, zone, classroom, even an individual IP speaker
- Multiple, simultaneous schedules can be broadcast within the same facility – have one bell schedule for kindergarten and other schedules for other grade, each schedule can have different tones and played only in the designated classrooms
- Flexible bell tones – broadcast recorded tones, music, or audio clips as part of your schedule
Additional Communication & Control Options
- Desktop Agent – audible messages can generate simultaneous computer screen text messages, alerts can be sent audibly or silently to individual computer screens or user groups
- Integrate building control and communications – software plug-in DORA (Direct Observation Real-time Alerting) can be integrated with existing safety and security systems providing additional notification and messaging
- Use with ControkKom® or InformaCast® software to send live, prerecorded or ad hoc messages along with control data to Atlas Sound IP Speakers and zone controller end points over new or existing multicast enabled local area networks. Loudspeakers are also compatible with SIP (session initiation protocol) VoIP systems. Contact Atlas Sound for SIP configuration info.
