A Belk department store at a local mall has a Gentex minihorn horn/strobe located in a three stall restroom on the wall in one of the small stalls. When you walk into that stall the horn/strobe is at ear level with your ear right next to it. Yes, minihorns aren't that loud, but still.

Well... The local Belk has a Wheelock AS in the bathroom.... Yep, cruel. I do not want to be in there when it goes off.
FACT: all walmarts and targets seem to have a radionics/bosch system

So does my school... I don't understand why since there's usually a horn/strobe right outside the restroom!

Did I mention that there's a hallway that has 6 AS's in it? There's an identically-shaped hallway right below that only has 4 AS's.

Reminds me of the time that I went to New York on a bus trip and we stopped at a rest center somewhere in either Connecticut or New Jersey. Anyway the bathroom not only had a Classic SpectrAlert horn/strobe in it but on of the stalls had a SpectrAlert ADVANCED horn/strobe in it almost at ear level.

What were they thinking!?

Uhhhh, That is very strange. All of my schools all just have 2 horn/strobes or 3. Thankfully the mall has Wheelock LSM strobes in the restrooms.

All of my schools had two or three horn/strobes or in the case of my middle school horn/lights in the corridors.

Here's the Belk store I am talking about. Someone made a YouTube video of the elevator in it. In the video you can see one of the Gentex minihorn NAs.
