Are you planning on adding conduit or wiremold?

Nope. I'm not going to invest anymore into this system as I have future plans and once I move out, the whole thing has to come down.

Here it is! The test of March 2018!

This test was specifically for Bell Testing and all pulls and smokes will be tested every April and October.

Both indoor and outdoor horns were tested unlike last month which was just the indoor horns. The outdoor horns had to be done quick since I don't want my neighbors calling the fire department! That would be bad.

All in all, the system is getting a small facelift which will fix some of the wiring kinks in the system (no conduit, system is already in place, I know it'll make it more professional but this is not considered a *Professional* system), also some pulls are getting back boxes, all indoor Siemens strobes will be synced, and possibly a R.A.F addition? No guarantees but it's likely.

The system tests are being moved to the first Monday of every month but if that changes, just hit the subscribe button and click the bell icon and you'll be the first to know.

Looks very nice so far! Great job! I do wanna know why one of the U-MMT's was on what looked like a 9219 cover plate though.

Because a 9219 was there. I took it down in favor of the u-mmt but didn't remove the back box as it's screwed in to wall anchors and didn't want the mess to show from taking it down.

Awwwwwww. Why did you take it down? Electromechanical horns are AWESOME.

I took it down because it was on the side of the house where an older disabled neighbor lives and it was clearly audible on that side. It sounded like the house was vibrating. So I put up the u-mmt and on low volume and it helps enough. Plus it was done at a time of testing almost everyday due to little by little being added to the system since I had to order parts one at a time because it's expensive. Everywhere other device not by my bedroom is on high volume.

The test for April 2018.



This is the last recorded system test of this system as I will soon not have the time or resources available to continue the series even though it was EXTREMELY short lived. I will probably do mini system tests sometime in the future.

Because of this, I went all out the best I could to demonstrate this massive piece of work that took me months to put together as well as over $3k spent from my personal paychecks over the last 6 months to make this possible. Around 2000 ft of wire was used on such a small building. The system consists on new and used parts.

Not a bad system test! It sucks you won't be able to do any more large tests like this but at least this system was a very great system!
