Thanks! I've put a lot of work into it :D

The system is going to remain as it is indefinitely. I have no intention of ever expanding it into my house, and if I were to decide to expand it at some point, I would most likely add another board off to one of the sides.

For anybody interested, I wrote an article on the System Tests page of my website about the construction of my system over the years. If you enjoy my videos, it should be a pretty interesting read. Enjoy!

Here's a special edition System Test, 24.1, that I filmed today. This details the cause of the equipment failure from System Test 24 and outlines the steps I took to correct it.

Here's System Test 25, featuring my Wheelock MT and System Sensor MA both set on slow whoop. This is actually the second time I filmed this, since I accidentally deleted the first one. Oops :oops: .

Happy Holidays, everyone!

System Test 26 has arrived! Thanks again to firealarmgeek/msj191961 for the PE11T Detectors, allowing me to install a complete Siemens/Cerberus Pyrotronics/Faraday system for this test.

Thanks for taking a look!

My newest System Test video is now available! In this one, I use both the conventional waterflow switch and the pneumatic pressure switch on the Halon system to activate the panels.

Check it out below!

Ooooh! Really lovely! I love the sound effect that both of those horns produce together.

Still a very nice video! Even if the horns are a bit too common!
