    Best Walkie Talkies for Schools

    Schools are busy, fast-paced environments. A teacher’s first priority is ensuring students get the best education possible, in a safe and well-organized environment. Walkie talkies provide teachers with that additional support to keep in touch with others ensuring the day runs as smoothly as possible. 

    Should there be an issue in a department, walkie talkies allow for immediate contact. As a result, teachers can respond swiftly and provide support when required. 

    Trying to determine which walkie talkies to buy can be a challenge; it’s difficult to know which ones will best suit a user’s needs.

    Here is a list of the top walkie talkies for schools, to take away that difficult decision for buyers;

    Motorola T82 

    With an IPx4 rating, the Motorola T82 walkie talkie is weatherproof, so it’s built to withstand harsh environments. Ideal for use both indoors and on the playground. The device’s sleek design is completed with a hidden display, which saves battery life. Meaning users will have 18 hours of use before having to recharge. The T82 also includes a LED torch for emergencies.

    Additional accessories, such as belt clips, lanyards, and earpieces are included with the radios. As a result, customers can immediately utilize the gadget with their preferred attachment.  

    Motorola XT180

    A lightweight, easy-to-use design that will last for a long shift. Users can communicate with ease with the XT180 walkie talkie. Because the radio is built for everyday use and lasts all day, it is a popular choice among schools. 

    The walkie talkie comes with twin charging pods, so they may be docked in a staff area to charge at the end of the day. 

    Motorola T92

    The robust T92 from Motorola keeps customers not only connected but also prepared in the event of an emergency. The T92’s emergency alert feature contains an alert function that activates a warning sound. Allowing the user to broadcast this information to other radios to alert them of the danger. 

    IP67 rated, the T92 is waterproof up to one meter and built to endure harsh weather, and will last up to 16 hours with the NiMH rechargeable batteries provided. 

    Motorola XT420 

    With the look of a professional licensed two-way radio, the XT420 is robust and hard-wearing. IP55 rated, the device offers much more than a traditional walkie talkie. The radio is both dust and waterproof, with a battery life of up to 20 hours. 

    Advanced voice activation, which means the radio may be used hands-free, is one of the radio’s many additional features. Users can opt for either drop-in single chargers or multi-unit chargers which allow simultaneous charging of up to six radios at a time. 

    A carry holster and belt clip also come with the XT420, making it easier for users to adjust the radio to their comfort level.

    There will be occasions when the school requiring the walkie talkies is based across a bigger building or campus. This will include some secondary schools, colleges, and universities. In these instances licensed two-way radios will be necessary to meet the communication requirements.
