Re: My [small] collection

Here comes the Chubb BZ1L, in a nutshell it's just a buzzer and a LED, nothing fancy here, but wait! There's a jumper to disable the buzzer.

Re: My [small] collection

The new devices have not yet arrived... Figured I'd make pictures of what I've got, sorry if the pictures are terribly blurry, my "sub-par quality" Chinese GoPro Clone (aka backup camera) certainly does NOT take good pictures/videos at all! Don't mind the timestamp on the images, it's completely wro...

Re: Strange fire alarm upgrade at the local Aldi storr

I'm unsure... Either it's a grandfathered system (that would be unlikely, but that would **PROBABLY** explain why there aren't any strobes) or it's a temporary system.

So the videos that are private you can only view if you are friends with him or something like that?
Nope. When a video is set to private no one except the owner of said video can see it.

Are they all gonna be the same rare devices or multiple rare devices?


I have no idea... All I know that these are very rare devices but how many or are they the same or not? I can't really answer that.

Re: Has anyone here ever danced to a fire alarm?

I tried, during a fire drill when we were outside the building... Yeah know that I gave up because it's hard to be synchro with the speed of the Nfs32001 afnor tone.. I know of a guy who did but for the life of me I can't remember where I saw that (I have no idea when it comes down to the fire alarm...

Re: My [small] collection

Got a lot of devices but right now I don't feel like posting pics of 'em right now (still recovering from a painful betrayal from someone I deeply trusted). New sounder : Merlin Gerin SR (two tones : Afnor nfs32001 and Continuous) -> Uncommon. Dated from the late 90's New sounder : Chubb BZ1L (the o...

Re: My [small] collection

Well at least you have the panel for your collection so that is really good. Nah I'm keeping the case, I've already removed the transformer inside (outputs around 45V, the power step-down for the signals was all done on the main board which went kaput) it's going to be a part donor. And this time I...

Re: My [small] collection

That is a very cool panel that you got! Awesome job in getting it! Rather was a very cool panel... ... It died as soon I powered it up, one of the capacitors in the power supply stage decided to blow up (yes, I fool you not). It was from 2013... Pity. But in the end I'm getting another panel that i...

Re: Strange Screen on sign factory

I had to laugh at the fortune cookie one! That is very humorous! I had seen even worse (my memory is fuzzy on the matter + back then I had a very "cheapo" [note from author: "cheapo" is an euphemism here] phone) : An entire game store (that coincidently still used CRT screens to play demos on them....
