That coding is really weird also. I have never heard anything like it. It sounds really nice and unique. And the alarms sort of remind me of a System Sensor MASS241575ADA.

Edwards 792s. If you listen real hard, you can hear a pitch change in them briefly. Also there is a Wheelock NS in there somewhere.

Notice how everyone ignores the alarm... I guess they need to read my signature!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0nqn9fm9h0 - EST voice-evac set on an interesting version of the "Fast whoop" tone, and a custom female message.

Actually, the alarms that you thought were Wheelock AS's were actually SpectrAlert Advances (they did the long pulse before going into Code 3.

Those "9252's" are actually ceiling mount TrueAlert horn/strobes (which was taken from the design of the 4903 rectangular A/V series) -- contrary to what the owner of that video originally said.

Here's another video of this system: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gq5VGnnNR08
Anyone know what type of system this could be? I haven't heard this tone/message anywhere else on YouTube! :?: :?: :?: :?:
I tried googling the message, but nothing turned up.
Now here's something that's VERY interesting/unusual!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9gjHNrc5Sg (skip to 9:05) Simplex 2001/2120 voice-evacuation going off! I wonder how long it'll be until this system gets upgraded...

EST voice-evac (I think, I saw what looks like a SIGA detector) with two odd tones heard.

This is kind of an interesting system and at the same time its also one that uses electromechanical horns so that is definitely a win in my book! And I was so glad to find this! Simplex 4041s in Code-3.

That's at one of my siren enthusiast YouTube friends high school somewhere. He told me it was built in the 1920's. A lot older than my school which is 66 years old lol (built in '51).

Well it does seem to be old but he said that the wing he was in was the last wing not renovated so I am betting that sometime in the coming future it will be renovated and the 4041s will be trashed. I also assume that the newer wings have TrueAlerts since he said all newer wings have newer Simplex piezo horns/strobes.

And just for groans and giggles, I will leave you all with this.

9838s on 2901 strobe plates.
