Has anyone ever seen foreign fire alarm devices on American systems?

At the vista house near Multnomah Falls and the Columbia river gorge in Oregon, there is a FA system with Spectralert classics and Callpoints installed as the initiating devices, rather than pull stations. I want to know if anyone has ever seen foreign fire alarm devices on American systems.

You can't. That panel won't work with the ANN-80.
It’s not an ANN-80, it’s an LCD-80. IIRC, the LCD-80 only works with the AFP-200 and the AM-2020/AFP-1010.

Re: Difference between Notifier AM-2020 and AFP-1010

Does anyone know the difference between the Notifier AM-2020 and the AFP-1010? I commonly here these two model numbers being used interchangeably, and the fact that they both look the same. Amount of capable addressable loops, and by extension, amount of devices capable. Can you please be more spec...

Re: have you ever set off a fire alarm in public?

Nope, never (without permission). It’s never okay to pull a fire alarm when there is no real fire, that’s tampering with equipment, which can get you in big trouble. Pulling the fire alarm can get you either suspended, expelled, or get you arrested and fined.

Re: Horn/strobes in restrooms

You’ll mostly find audio/visual devices in older systems (80’s and 90’s), Newer systems would probably not do that.

Re: Real fire alarm stories

I know this is a major bump, but since I’m the Original Poster, there are exceptions. In 5th grade, the local library was hosting a science demonstration in the schools library using a fog machine. They brought over Air vortex cannons and homemade ones using a trash bags and brute trash cans. It was...

If you say yes to fire, you better correct yourself and say Notifier (No-To-Fire)

Re: EST3 unprogrammed device datacard trouble

Does anyone know what the EST3 “unprogrammed device datacard” trouble is? It pops up sometimes on the annunciator at my high school and I want to know what it means, if anyone knows. Sounds like the system has a device/module that it's reading, but the location/address wasn't put in. Does it have t...

Most of the Lowes/Home Depot stores in my area also sell emergency lights and exit signs, it may be pretty common throughout the US.
That’s right, and most electrical supply stores sell them such a Grainger Industries and ADI Global.

I've brought a few to art class, so that I could re-paint/restore them.
What were they?
