The comprehensive communication solution for schools

For everyday communications and emergencies

Stryker’s Vocera communication solutions equip staff to communicate quickly and broadly every day – and to take fast, appropriate action to help protect students and each other in an emergency.


Equip teachers, administrators, security personnel 

and others to communicate quickly and broadly

Communicate intuitively with individuals or groups

Go beyond walkie-talkies and panic button point solutions to stay connected from the classroom and elsewhere

Stryker’s lightweight, wearable Vocera Smartbadge brings together hands-free voice calling, secure messaging, notifications and a panic button in one device.

  • Say, “Okay Vocera” to wake up the device and initiate a conversation without needing to know names or numbers.
  • Enable administrators, teachers and school resource officers to stay connected from the classroom or elsewhere.
  • Get a near-real time directory view of teachers, administrative staff and resource officers, even across multiple campuses.

Create a communication hub for school security and safety

Reach help quickly

Our solutions integrate with campus security technologies to help speed law enforcement and EMT response and allow broad communication in the event of a threat.

  • Press the Smartbadge’s panic button to quickly and discreetly reach security personnel.
  • Broadcast to a group or everyone in a facility to follow a protocol such as lockdown or shelter in place.
  • Teachers and staff can make a straight call to 911, and security supervisors can contact school resource officers directly.

Create a quieter environment for teaching and learning

Fast, reliable communication for teachers and administrators

Help reduce classroom disruptions from overhead paging, intercoms, and/or walkie-talkies and give teachers more control over communication.

  • Users can call each other directly.
  • Set the Smartbadge to Do Not Disturb (DND) to allow focus on an activity.
  • Communications can be designed to automatically escalate, and DND mode can be overridden in an emergency.
