Howdy. I was recently thinking about getting a Midland weather radio for both here and when I move to Stillwater, OK. I know that you can program what SAME frequencies they detect, but aside from weather alerts, can they pick up other EAS messages and EANs? (If need be)

Thanks.
I wonder when FA companies will integrate weather radio and/or EAS features in their mass notification solutions. It certainly would be handy alerting everyone in the building to a weather emergency automatically, without having to manually activate the mass notification system.

it's already possible. most evac systems can take an audio input in, you just have to have the right eas system to output the message to the FA system. there's a lot of mass notification systems out there now that integrate with fire alarm systems.

that being said, i've never seen a weather radio integrated directly into the FA/MASS system. i've seen it done with other systems though.

Didn't Simplex introduce an ENDEC that could be built into the voice evacuation system?

Yes, the 4907-9101 NEWS Receiver integrates with a 4100U or 4100ES audio system. There is a special audio chipset file that contains messages that mesh with the radio messages. Programming can be fully automatic operation or be controlled by on site security personnel.

From the datasheet>
Allows information from the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) “All Hazards”
Radio Network to be available at the host control panel
for Emergency Communication System (ECS) or Mass
Notification System (MNS) broadcasts

Notice of select NOAA Emergency Alert System (EAS)
message receipt are sent to the host panel allowing it to
automatically request the full warning message for
broadcast over the Emergency Voice Alarm
Communications system (manual operation is selectable
if preferred)
