HourGlass is a dual-function classroom management system that can be used as a Timer and as a Noise Detector. The giant display of lights is a dynamic measuring tool that can be seen by everyone in a classroom or even an auditorium.
One year unconditional warranty. Requires 4 "C" batteries or optional AC adaptor. Battery life in a typical classroom operation is 6 months- 2 years, but varies according to usage. 15" x 8" x 4.5".
TIMER MODE adds structure and focus to tests, games and other timed events. Everyone can see the lights fall from the upper part of the "sand timer" to the lower part. As "time's up" approaches the lights turn red, and a one-minute warning tone sounds. When the time is up, sound plays and lights flash to clearly signal the end.
NOISE MODE helps control classroom noise. Everyone can see the rows of "sound meter" lights rise and fall, indicating the noise level in the room. At the "trigger point" set by the teacher, a warning sound plays and lights flash, signaling the room to quiet down!

“The best aspect of this product was the kids asked to use it! I would tell them they had 10 minutes and forget to use it and one of the kids would turn it on. It was a great visual reminder for them. I loved the fact that it was a 2 in 1 product-- both a noise level monitor and a timer. I really liked that it had lights so the students can easily see how much time they have left, or how loud they are getting.” -2017 Teachers' Choice Award for the Classroom Evaluator Comment
