You can't go wrong with Simplex so that is what I voted for.
I'm exclusively on Skype now. Add me at amazee_dayzee. I don't do voice or video chats though.
Unless you buy a TrueAlert with the intent of running it off three 9 volt batteries. Not criticizing them, just saying you can make mistakes while buying anything.Simplex 4051 wrote:You can't go wrong with Simplex

Simplex uses a sync protocol called smartsync and if the horn/strobe uses smartsync, it can ONLY be run on a smartsync circuit. Otherwise the strobe will only flash one time when power is removed. This is different from other manufacturers because usually if you don't use a sync protocol, the horn/strobe would just free run. But Simplex smartsync horns and strobes will do nothing without smartsync.Rodj1 wrote:What's wrong with running it off 3 9-volt batteries?MayerFire wrote:Unless you buy a TrueAlert with the intent of running it off three 9 volt batteries.
