This Yacker Tracker is not being used as a toy but as a tool in assisting classroom management in a kindergarten classroom. It does everything I had hoped it would. When the red light goes off and the siren sounds because the classroom is too loud, I don't have to say a thing. I would suggest that some kind of consequence be associated with it, however. After keeping it for a week for the children to get used to, I added a consequence for each time the siren went off. If there is no consequence, it can become a toy and the children will intentionally speak loudly to get it to go off (especially when the siren is not on). I've found it a great help and no longer have to have it on all the time.

This is really a great device for monitoring noise in any environment. We are using it in a hospital setting to inform staff and visitors when the noise level is too high. It is big enough to be seen and small enough to move around. There is no argument about what is too loud and it becomes the nagging nanny instead of some concerned person.

In conclusion, if you need to control noise levels and constant reminders don't seem to work, give this thing a try. It doesn't care if you give it a dirty look, it still flashes red and it won't go away.

The class loves the traffic light! They are always asking to have it on. This lets the children monitor their own noise level. It keeps me (the teacher) from saying "I think you are too loud" and worrying that maybe I am in a glunky mood and a little more sensitive that day. Now it is the traffic light that lets the kids know they are too loud. They know that the yellow is a warning. If it goes to red they lose some recess time. We brought this light up to the lunch room and all the teachers couldn't believe how quiet the lunch room was. Both the young eaters and the older grades were much more aware of their own noise. I recommend it to schools!

The reason I gave this a three rather than a five is because I can't find replacement light bulbs ANYWHERE! When I take them out, it says they are 12V3W bulbs, which are not in hardware stores and not in Radio Shack. I then started looking for the bulbs online, and that's a nightmare.

The closest thing I have found is this page: [...], but I have no idea if it's the right bulb or not!

I now teach with a small group of high school students, so I don't need it to monitor noise. I use it for music control. If the green light is on, they can listen to their own music. If the yellow light is on, they can only listen to my music. If the red light is on, no music at all.

It worked really well, and I wish I could just get some new lightbulbs so I could use this thing. Paying for a new one every couple of year will get expensive.

The Yakker Trakker takes the work out of quieting a classroom. I teach high school math. When I first turned the machine on I thought the siren was too soft but the kids absolutely hate it. If you set it to 50 or 60 decibels it does go off with even a slight bit of noise. I use this mode for a penalty. If the kids are being loud I set it to 60 for 2 minutes. The yakker trakker will go off a lot in those two minutes but you will be shocked at how quiet your class becomes after those 2 minutes. Classroom talking is definitely a snowball effect. If you stop the momentum with the yakker trakker it will soon die out. I do wish they made a 65 dB level because I find that 60 is too sensitive and 70 is not sensitive enough. Other than that I must say that I LOVE the yakker trakker. It has really changed my life!!! I no longer find myself yelling at my period 5 class. If they are talking all I have to do is start tracking the yacking. Thanks Yakker Trakker.

I bought this for my husband who is an elementary school teacher. He now incorporates it into activities where the students are expected to stay quiet (quiet reading times, during tests, etc). He's found it's extremely helpful for these moments, but it doesn't work to keep the volume down during instructional time, mostly because he has a loud voice and sets off the alarm if it's left on. It's very helpful to keep kids quiet and make it into a game, however. He has started a system where each time that the alarm goes off, it takes away one minute of free play time at the end of the day, and they have to spend those minutes in complete silence or else the timer starts over again. It has been very effective, as now the kids rarely stay over two minutes into free play time, as opposed to 10-12 minutes when he started using the yacker tracker.

Overall: Helpful for keeping kids quiet for quiet activities, but not so useful for instructional time as the teacher may end up setting off the alarm.

This is a decent product. The kids REALLY engage with it, and enjoy trying to beat the Yacker Tracker by being as quiet as possible. It has made classroom management a bit easier. However, the "warning" that it emits is very soft, even when turned up as high as possible. If the kids are loud enough to set off the tracker, then it isn't loud enough for them to hear the warning, no matter WHAT sensitivity setting I put it at.

However, I HIGHLY recommend this product.
