Since my home fire alarm system is almost near completion, I wanted to share what devices are in and what's to come! The alarm panel is a Simplex 4005 and so far it's handling all my additions and seems very stable! I would've preferred an addressable system but my I'm having trouble with my fs-250 and the 4010 is still fried. However the 4005 seems complicated enough to my liking, plus thanks to it's card based layout, I have more flexibility than any addressable panel I own! Some parts are hard to find though, which concerns me a little since it's no longer manufactured new.
So we start out in the main (original) portion of my house.
The fire alarm panel is a Simplex 4005!
The batteries are powered by 2 power sonic PS-1250F1. I should've used 7 or 8 amp hours but I ordered these before I knew that and well, the panel is happy, so ... good enough for me!
The Front keypad, and yes I did take this on January 1, 1995!
The security room/office has a Simplex 4903-9220 horn/strobe.
There is a pull station in the panel room which is a Simplex 4251-20 and there's another 4251-20 outside the office, which is at the front door.
There is a smoke detector above the fire panel per code, I forget the model number but it's the older 2098 series smokes.
Outside the office, there is a Simplex 4903-9219 horn/strobe.
So making our way to the rec room extension, we have a Siemens ZH-MC-W horn/strobe at the exit door. A ZR-MC-W strobe will be added later. All indoor Siemens horn/strobes and strobes are synced together and horns silence-able over 2 wire!
Back towards the renovated dining room, we have a Faraday re branded (Siemens U-MCS) strobe. It was the only closest Siemens strobe I had plus it works with the Siemens sync protocol.
Into the garage extension, we have a two Siemens U-MHU-MCS horn/strobe. The coding has been fixed to Temporal, I lost a jumper so it was stuck on Siemens March Time (called pulse on most systems) so I replaced it with another jumper so it's all good!
Ok, heading outside the garage rear exit door, we have a Siemens AS-WP-HMC-W horn/strobe.
And going around the garage to the front of the house, a Siemens U-MHU-S110 non sync weatherproof horn/strobe, the horn is a little lower than the indoor U-MHU horn/strobes. Due to this horn not sync-able, all outdoor horn/strobes are free run. As far as I know, NFPA doesn't mandate outdoor sync strobes if multiple strobes are not in the same human field of view. This is the only horn/strobe out front. The AS is on the other side facing the backyard.
Back in the house, going upstairs we have a 2099-9754 which I replaced the 4251-20 with. This is the newer version with the key lock that turns right!
Lastly, the device that powers the sync strobes is a Siemens DSC-W.
Additional devices to be added to the system, mostly smokes and heats. I'm really fascinated by this system and what are your opinions on this? Does this seem like a real world situation, have you ever come across something similar?
Thanks for viewing!
