Paging horns, while simple in their construction and installation, serve many different important uses throughout various industries. While the usual motive is to deliver information to a specific area, person or entire building, there are further, more complex uses that have allowed many different businesses to adopt this cost-effective type of technology.
Schools are generally the first thing that comes to mind when speaking about the functionality of these devices. Typically installed on the ceiling for greater sound output, the units generally consist of a one-way transmitter, a switchboard and several output speakers or devices. The operator simply uses the transmitter to either deliver a message to an individual classroom, or to the entire building.
Offices are also veering towards this efficient and cost-effective way of delivering information throughout the various floors and departments of a single building. Technology today allows even the smallest of offices and even cubicles to be equipped with receivers that can handle messages delivered by paging horns. This gives the owner and operator the freedom on how to deliver information, either discreetly or publicly.
Grocery stores are another popular business that utilizes these types of devices. Front-end offices inside that field calls will typically make routine announcements throughout the day that are either directed at a particular employee on the floor or the various shoppers in the building all at once. Other departments such as the meat market and bakery can also be alerted through this method without the need for close proximity. Additionally, music has become a very popular use among these devices throughout a wide variety of sectors such as department stores and casinos. Both utilize the customization of creating a playlist of music that allows shoppers and clients a better experience in a cost-effective method.
