David Stapleton and Era’s Tania Tams with Mrs. Grundy and pupils at St Michael’s First School
Vigilance can report that there’re no more parents left waiting out in the cold at St Michael’s First School in Penkridge, thanks to the UK’s home security specialists, ERA.
With no intercom system installed at the school, out-of-school staff found themselves pacing the corridor to open the door every time a parent came to collect their child from the popular after-school club.
Hearing of the staff and parents’ plight, Willenhall-based ERA has donated one of its easy to use miChime Video Door. Intercoms was then expertly installed by David Stapleton of Stapleton’s Lock & Safe Ltd, along with an electronic push-bar panic lock.
Headteacher at St Michael’s First School, Mrs Jayne Grundy said: "Safeguarding our pupils is our top priority and our new video intercom enables us to do this much more effectively. Our staff can now see exactly who is at the door before letting them in, all at the touch of a button and without having to leave the classroom.’ ERA distribution marketing manager, Tania Tams said, ‘The miChime Video Intercom is ideal for this type of application and we are extremely pleased that it has made such a difference to the daily running of the busy out-of-school club.
