Edwards 892: The Shakespearean fire alarm. (892-2B or not 2B: the latter being either a 1B or 6B).

Re: BG12L - Remove backbox

My best guess is that you would need a Phillips screwdriver. I'm not 100% sure on that statement as that the only backbox I've mounted my BG-12L on is one for a light switch, and I do not own a proper backbox for that series of pull stations.

Just to clarify: is it a BG-12L or a BG-12LO?

Re: Spectralert classics installed in a building built in 2008

I believe its the same situation as we are having now, with SpectrAlert Advance weatherproof alarms still being installed when the L-Series has been out for two years. That could explain why I (still) haven't seen L-Series notification appliances installed in buildings. Nowadays, I don't ever go to...

Re: The dream that I had last night involving fire alarms

We already have a topic on this subject matter: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=8291, even though it's been dead for almost two years.

Re: Alternatives to System Sensor for Notifier notification

I've seen two Notifier systems with Gentex notification appliances (both being hotels under the same brand from different time periods), so it's probably not too uncommon to find such criteria out in the field.

Re: Devices in Your Collection That You've Never Seen in a Public Building

The Gentex GOS (the multi-tone version of the SHG -- otherwise known as the predecessor of the Commander2/3/4), the Simplex 4903-9102 light plate, and, oddly enough, the Wheelock RSSP strobe plate. Sorry for the bump, but I just acquired a System Sensor L-Series horn/strobe for Christmas (P2RL). Th...

Re: Time is not correct

You probably didn't adjust your time zone preferences when Daylight Savings Time ended back in early November. I would tell you how to do it, but I'm too lazy at the moment.

Re: What is your favorite soda pool

None of these because I have no interest in sodas/soft drinks. On a slightly unrelated note, I also have no interest in any alcoholic drinks either (I am technically old enough to consume alcohol, but I choose not to). I'll take either milk or water any day!

What to do with smoke alarm manuals when moving out

For reasons I do not want to explain at this time, my (immediate) family will be moving out relatively soon.

My question is: what do you do with the manuals when you move out? Do I leave it behind for whoever is going to move into my soon-to-be-former house?

Re: Siemens rebranding EST equipment

I think I remember seeing Siemens rebranded SIGA series detectors somewhere in Chicago O'Hare Airport, but I'm not 100% sure on that (only been there for one trip back in 2011)...

Re: Strange mouse behavior

I would try unplugging the receiver for the mouse and try a generic, run of the mill USB mouse and see if that makes a difference. Try the same with your keyboard if that doesn't work. If none of those work, I will try to think of other things that could be the problem. Actually, I already fixed th...

Re: Strange mouse behavior

I forgot to mention that I've also tested to see if the battery was low. The battery was fine (my multimeter read slightly more than 1.4 volts). Additionally, I had suspected that maybe it was one of the keys on my keyboard. That was not the case. Again, if anyone knows what the problem could be, le...
