There’s also the Gamewell Zans-400 which looks very similar to the Pyrotronics System 3, only just mirrored.

(I now do all my schoolwork online) I won't name it, (even though we no longer live where it is) but it had Spectralert Classics and I'm ASSUMING a ...

Sometimes Small fire alarm companies make deals with large fire alarm companies to either make, or rebrand products for them.

Also Simplex changed the QuickAlert brand to TrueAlert because another company already trademarked the name QuickAlert . This topic sorta brand bashes (in my opinion), so I would...

That's a pretty good find, you often don't find fire alarms outside a building on Streetview, or do you?
It’s possible to find them, you just need to very observant and you’ll find one!

My simplex SmartSync module stopped working. Can I wire a SmartSync truealert without the module? Its a 2 wire SmartSync only horn/strobe.
How exactly did it stop working? are you sure you didn’t short a wire when you went to wire it up?

Does anyone still see Ford Crown Victorias?

My department no longer uses them, they use dodge chargers now. I want to know if anyone has seen them still used by their city’s Police department.
