Gonna try my luck at posting videos under the new video guidelines. Would these count as being different from other videos?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWIME_wfOSM - Here is a recent video from twoplyboy (not sure if he has an account here); a 270-SPO pull station sets off ceiling-mount speakers–signal coding is the Notifier slow whoop. More info in the video.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygFJu_OldWA - Another one of twoplyboy’s latest videos; a panel is being tested, and in the background, a high-pitched slow whoop can be heard. More info in the video. Note the disconnected wires; what are those for?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GI0fbs1gPwM - (EXPLICIT LANGUAGE) White Select-A-strobes above piezos in code-3. These are located throughout a house, which is very unusual for a fire alarm system. There are other piezos (MA/SS sounding) that can be heard in the background.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qh_-_cC_c4 - VA4 horn/strobes in continuous–notice the one at the beginning that is over a backplate–it replaced an older alarm. Pull stations appear to be of the “Lift and Pull” type (Potter/Radionics).
I hope these videos count as being unusual/interesting…and I’m sorry if they’re not. But then again, videos like the weird slow whoop in video 4 could be considered unusual…
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEP4LJlTDys - An EST panel (presumably) w/ an Integrity horn/strobe + EST photoelectric detector–the strange thing is that (unseen) there is a coded pull station used in the system! It sends a code to the system in a 3-1-5 pattern.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SosaLzbtqhQ - A musical montage of several different fire/emergency call point stations (some behind Stopper II models; one has a panel) at this one school. No actual alarms are shown, though.
