These school-zone beacons help increase the safety of school zones, playground zones, and other risky areas. They remind drivers to slow down, and keep drivers alert as they pass through the zones. Operators create an activation schedule via Web to wirelessly transmit the schedule to the beacons. A primary beacon stores and runs the schedule, while the secondary beacons are set up to flash according to scheduled activation. Beacons can be installed anywhere with cell reception, or wired directly.
