If you could get more Adaptahorn videos I would really like it since I do find that they are nice and like to listen to them.
Hopefully I can deliver! I'm not sure if we service any more buildings with adaptahorns, but I haven't even been to half of them yet so I wouldn't be surprised.

Well if you can't, its OK. I realize that Adaptahorns are going out of style.

I just thought because of twoplyboy there would be a bit more. Since Edwards seems to be to Canada what Simplex is to the US, I'm sure most older systems are being replaced.

Hello! Haven't done a ton of annuals recently, been working on a piping job for a mag lock system. But here are a few vids:


-Just posted this in another topic, this is a monthly test of a Mircom FX-2000 speaker system. Speakers are set to the wrong coding (should be temporal).


-Battery load test & subsequent on a Mircom FX-2000 (on second thought may be a Potter panel). Bells are Edwards 439-10AWCs, pulls are Edwards 275-C111s.


-Testing a Standard 200179 in an annual of an apartment building. This is one of the few buildings we have that still use these pulls.

Cool videos! You don't have to apologize for not posting videos in a while as we all know that you are busy! But the videos you did upload are really nice!

Some more videos!


-Doing a bell test in a 3 story walk up. They had a water leak in a room we had our booster panel in, so we were making sure all the horns worked.


-Just doing an annual on a Mircom FX-2000, I was at the panel ringing the horns while my partner was checking out units.


-Follow up to the previous video, testing the horns in the parking garage. Idk why but the video does freeze near the end, but there is still audio.


-We just installed a EST Fireshield Plus, and I was doing a load test and making sure the horns were coded right.


-I've posted this system before in my video 'bell test #6', this is me testing out the new system. The old system was an Edwards 6500, which was replaced with a Kidde VS4.


-I've also made a video of this system before. This is a monthly test at one of my regular monthly buildings.


-Doing an annual bell test on a Mirtone 8000 panel.


-& this is a video of said Mirtone 8000 panel.

Those videos are really nice! I like the one with the Mircom horns that sound like SHGs!

-Bell test in a 4 story building with penthouse. The system is an Edwards 6500, original to the building, circa 1979. Most pulls and Bells are original too. Pulls are Edwards 270-SPOs, and bells are Edwards 6100-Ds. This system has no smoke detectors on it whatsoever.


-Test of a small pool system. This is in between a set of buildings, which are beside another set of newer buildings. The old buildings both have EST ESA 2000s, but somehow forgot to give the pool any sort of alarm system. It must have been added on when the newer buildings were built, those have A Mircom FA-1000 & FX-2000, with one of those panels controlling their pool. Alarm is an Edwards 439-6AWC, pulls 270-SPO. Panel is a little rusty, as it is in a boiler room inside a pool, it was well over 100 degrees in there.
