Re: What's the loudest fire alarm that you've heard?

The worst/loudest horn I've ever heard, with only a Vibration 350 and a SpectrAlert Advance coming close, was a Cerberus Pyrotronics MC-S17-F. My middle school has eight of them scattered throughout the office/media building complementing the original three Wheelock 34 horns, and DEAR. LORD. They d...

Re: Home Depot has Gentex Commanders all over the place.

my home depot has the same setting (commander 4s) for their system but its a horn/strobe, then a strobe, then a horn/strobe again and that repeats from wall to wall. try and check the grilles.

Re: Music playing out of a horn/strobe. How is this possible?

I've seen videos of people who've managed to play voice evac messages over TrueAlert horn/strobes (pretty sure it was wheelovefirealarms) alongside other things. i'm not sure how its done but its really cool!

Re: Fire, Lockdown, Severe Weather, Tornado, Shelter-in-Place, and other Emergency Drills for the 2019-2020 Academic Yea

so because of the coronavirus, this might be the end of any system activations i see from my school, since i won't be at school. theres a possibility that we'll open back up in april, but until then, that's a wrap for me until collage.

Re: Fire Alarms in Buildings (2.0)

At Target, the alarms weren't sounding, however their strobes were going off for the whole time we were there. Apparently the system was acting up. I've mentioned this place before but to any confusion I'll reiterate the devices. System Sensor L-Series PC2WLs and SCWL strobes scattered around in the...

Re: Fire Alarms in Buildings (2.0)

There's a [ROADNAME] animal hospital less than a mile away from where I live. Inside, there's a Wheelock 7002T-24 horn/strobe mounted above a Fire-Lite BG-10 pull station, along with an i3 smoke in both the lobby room and the back room plus an unknown heat detector with a grille (possibly installed ...

Re: Fire Alarms in Buildings (2.0)

I've seen a few instances where alarms at my school with extruded backboxes have coke bottles sitting on the top of them. It's really funny tbh

Re: NAs where it can be hard to tell a remote strobe and horn/strobe apart.

With clear grille alarms such as the Genesis series, if there is no shiny spherical shape in the grille AKA the piezo speaker, the alarm is a remote stribe

The mircom/potter alarms with the exception of the LED series are the hardest tbh

Re: Fire Alarms in Buildings (2.0)

The Art institute of Chicago has a MASSIVE Siemens MXL system. From my experience there, a majority of devices are Siemens ZH horn/strobes, red/white AND wall/ceiling. They can also be found in the bathrooms! Some reason, I feel like the installation for the Art Institute and O'Hare airport are rela...

Nite N' Dale has an unknown system with 2 Gentex Commander 3 horn/strobes covering both seating areas respectively. The FIRE lettering for the alarms is mounted upside down while the NA itself is installed rightside up, which is very strange. Bathrooms have a ceiling mount SpectrAlert horn/strobe RI...
