fully legit. completely real. not fake.

That last one is actually ul listed, and isn’t really a knockoff

:joy: It’s trash, I feel like I would see one of these in China. Parts of the tabs broke off mine because It was so cheap.

Plus It has red LED’s

This post has been moved to flea market

Well, I’m not so sure. Seemed like he was just sharing pictures of alarms and not actually selling them. I went ahead and moved it back to Fire Alarm Media. I think that more closely fits the general nature of this thread.

Well I posted my knockoff alarms post in the flea market section

How dare labeling it as a SIREN? This could not even be classified as a horn/strobe… It’s neither as loud as a real horn nor as bright as a decent strobe. Maybe that’s just a sounder/light.

Interesting how the wiring diagram is on the back instead of in a manual

I meant I think @66cccfff is Chinese

I saw knockoff BG-12s and SpectrAlerts at a cruise port in Mexico a few years ago:

Ironically, these devices replaced real BG-12s and SpectrAlerts:

I unfortunately don’t have a picture of one of the original horn/strobes, but the real BG-12 pictured above is mounted at the same location as the knockoff version shown in the first photo. I took the picture of the knockoff BG-12 one year after the one showing the real BG-12.


How did this happen? Lmao :joy:

The alarm company cheaped out obviously

Yep you’re right (^U^)

Where we have the goofy people that use Chinese alarms
