This study aimed to develop an automated school bell system that can play a series of prayers and audio files specified the University of the Immaculate Conception (UIC) administration as well as inform the people inside the school premises of the current date, hourly time, time every end of the class schedule, and the 5-minute warning and chime before the bell. The design project employed the descriptive and experimental research methods in assessing the device’s performance. The device was tested and evaluated by 40 respondents which were composed of personas from the school administration and the students. The statistical treatment used were the mean, standard deviation, t-test and the p-value was also determined to know if there was a significant difference between the gathered data and a set value. After a series of tests and evaluations, it was concluded that the device was effective in performing its specified tasks. Nevertheless, minor improvements on the system are needed to fully satisfy the needs of the institution.
