The Cloister Bell was an alarm bell located in the Cloister Room inside TARDISes. The Cloister Bell was used in the most serious emergencies, emergencies so grave that even the TARDIS itself and its inhabitants were in danger. Its distinctive, sonorous, ringing sound resembled that of a large church bell. It could be answered by anyone inside the TARDIS. The Fourth Doctor told Adric that if he needed him, Adric could sound the Cloister Bell, indicating it could be manually activated. (TV: Logopolis)
