As part of their drive to bring innovation to the K12 Safety and Security industry, the CrisisGo team partnered with Siyata Mobile and their SD7 handset to equip schools with a next-gen panic button. This two-way Push-to-Talk (PTT) device enables staff to send instant, definitive alerts (and their detailed location) not only to their safety teams but also to first responders with an integrated CrisisGo SOS button. With 3 clicks, this device can send a staff assist alert, and a voice message via PTT to safety teams. 7 clicks can initiate lockdowns, evacuations, and other high-level alerts directly to first responders and local 911, along with a voice message and advanced location information. PTT allows first responders to communicate with anyone with an SD7, providing life-saving details when seconds count. In addition, users can send check-in details to the safety team via the rotary knob and LED display, acting as enhanced pager.

When using the SD7 and its CrisisGo integrated SOS button, it opens the door to all of CrisisGo’s alerting functionality, with the added benefits of two-way PTT capabilities across devices.

Problem solved:

The Siyata SD7, with the CrisisGo integrated SOS button, solves the problem of school staff not being able to relay vital information beyond a simple panic alert. A badge or basic panic hardware button is signaling but doesn't provide instant two-way communication. You don't want to dispatch police for day-to-day incidents happening in school. With this next- gen push-to-talk (PTT) device, school staff can accurately relay specific information via two-way communication with the safety team and (when necessary) first responders. Enabling first responders with as much information as possible about the crisis gives schools the best chance at a positive outcome.


Grade/age range:

The Siyata SD7 with CrisisGo can be used for all ages of teachers, staff, administration, safety leaders, district leaders, SROs, and more for K12 education with opportunities for higher education use as well. The SD7 is incredibly easy to use, and with high functionality and benefits, it’s a game changer for anyone looking to improve their school safety.

Professional development:

The SD7 handset paired with CrisisGo increases safety awareness, and develops school staff into active participants of school safety.


The SD7, along with CrisisGo’s Safety iResponse can be mapped and customized to meet the standards and response protocols being used by the organization.

Time needed:

The beauty of the SD7 is that it’s incredibly easy to learn. In fact, it’s much easier to learn than even a smartphone, which most school staff uses already in their personal lives. There’s a push-to-talk button, and an SOS button. With just these two buttons teachers and staff can dramatically enhance safety communication in their school with ease.

Pricing model:

The price of the SD7 depends on what carrier is chosen, and the data plan rates per that carrier. The CrisisGo application on the SD7 is $5 per user per month— less expensive than a Hulu subscription!


What else is needed?

A WiFi connection or a cellular data plan is needed to operate the SD7 handset.

What makes CrisisGo unique?

The ability to have two-way communication and location with safety teams and first responders is revolutionary, and much needed for the k12 industry. The SD7 enhanced with CrisisGo’s alerting and communication platform allows teachers, staff, and SROs to convey vital information during a crisis. Without two-way communication and details on the situation, our first responders are going into a crisis blind. With this product, we’re increasing the chances of schools experiencing a positive and safe outcome no matter what the crisis is.


The SD7 is designed to operate as a simple Push-to-Talk handset. Its sleek, lightweight design and military specs make it the perfect tool for the user to carry on their belt, in their hand, or set on a designated stand on a desk. Each button is contextual so that even when the user is trapped in smoke during a fire, they would be able to know which button they are clicking. Someone could operate the SD7 handset blind and still convey vital information during a crisis.
