Decent siren/light for alarm system
on October 29, 2013
I purchased 2 of these in order to expand the audible alarm siren - one in my master bedroom and one upstairs. My control panel's alarm is loud, but gets drowned out by the time the sound reaches those two areas. I am using these with FrontPoint Security (who I love, by the way). The setup is quick and easy. The siren is quite loud. One major complaint is that these aren't really strobe lights - just a flashing light. There is a huge difference between a strobe light and a blinking light.... but seeing as how I got these mostly for the audible siren, it's not a huge issue to me. One important thing to note (at least with my system), is that if the alarm is triggered, the triggering sensor must be reclosed to stop the siren/light - even if you cancel the alarm, otherwise these keep sounding. This is important to know in case you accidentally trigger the alarm. Another complaint would be losing contact with the panel - one of mine quit communicating with my panel and was therefore useless... however, this was when I added the second siren/strobe, so maybe I messed something up. Once I reconnected the non-functioning siren/strobe it worked again and has since (months).
