Weird exception: A really strange Siemens system with Edwards Genesi, installed around 2010.
I have heard of EST3 systems rebranded by Siemens.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eC-t8hfJFTY - Voice evac system with the same two-step whoop as the alarms in the old World Trade Center.

Re: Fire Alarms in Buildings (2.0)

The last system from my trip... and it's VERY unusual in multiple ways. Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport - Baltimore, MD Pull stations: Honeywell S464A's (I think they're addressable) with dual-action covers in older areas. https://instagram.fbos1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/vp/54eef...
