Uses of the Yacker Tracker
The Yacker Tracker is used world wide in an assortment of ways, don't let us limit your immagination, and let us know how you use yours!
From K-12 through to study halls of the University library. Lending a simple reminder of noise level goes a long way at any age.
- • In cafeterias to curtail lunch time noise
- • In individual classrooms as a student self-monitoring noise level device (Nursery schools all the way through high school classrooms)
- • In school and public libraries
- • Substitute teachers bring them with them to classrooms as a novel way to keep the students paying attention – giving rewards for the amount of time the class can keep the green light lit
- • Theater teachers have used it in the back of their auditoriums encouraging students to set off the red light to show strong projection of their voices
- • Teachers have used it as a debate facilitator, manually setting off the different colored lights to monitor length of responses
Hospitals around the United States have used the Yacker Tracker to monitor the noise level in various parts of the hospitals (nurseries, waiting rooms, surgery rooms and nurses stations, to name a few)
- • Nurseries
- • Waiting Rooms
- • Surgery Rooms
- • Nurse Stations
- • Many many more...
- • Mines in Australia use Yacker Trackers as a noise monitoring device to keep noise levels under mandated and regulated decibels.
- • City Halls have used Yacker Trackers to help control noise and also manually to monitor length of speakers in City Counsel Chamber meetings.
- • works great to get my barking dog to stop barking. Just set the sensativity and let the siren sound. I found he is learning to recognize the flashing yellow light during his I'm-going-to-bark-any-minute phase and shuts up before the bark. He hates that siren.
- • My eight-year-old son has been crying out in his sleep. We try to wake him from his dream so he can go back to sleep peacefully. The Yacker Tracker works great when it is turned up to a 80dB level and put by his bedside. He shouts out in his sleep; the siren goes off; he wakes enough to stop his dream; and the whole family is happy.
- • Although I thankfully have yet to test it, I think it would work as an intruder alert when left in an unoccupied room at night. The burgler doesn't have to know that the siren is just from the Yacker Tracker and not an expensive home security system.
