We have added some new products to the Alarm Grid website. These include two (2) additional polycarbonate plastic enclosures for safely storing and protecting alarm system equipment, plus a convenient mini piezo electric sounder for boosting keypad volume. Let's check out these products!
First up we have two (2) new polycarbonate protective enclosures from Mier, including the Mier BW-BWL1086 (10"L x 8"W x 6"D) and the Mier BW-SL14126C (14"L x 12"W x 6"D). You may recall the two (2) similar polycarbonate enclosures from STI that we discussed last week. These new offerings from Mier essentially accomplish the same thing, but we wanted to give our customers even more great options to choose from. Polycarbonate enclosures are great for protecting any wired to wireless converter modules and wireless receivers that may not function properly in a traditional metal enclosure. Polycarbonate enclosures are also safe to use outdoors, and they are a great option if you need to set up equipment in an area where it will need to withstand outside elements. This includes protection against harmful UV rays. Please note that the Mier BW-SL14126C is translucent and see-through for easy monitoring of interior LED lights. But the Mier BW-BWL1086 is opaque and not see-through. Keep that in mind if you decide to purchase.
Alarm Grid also now offers the Amseco PAL-328N. This is a small, but very versatile piezo-electric sounder that can be used with an operating voltage ranging from 3VDC to 28VDC, while only drawing 20mA of current. Applying more voltage will increase the maximum volume of the unit. If you only provide the minimum 3VDC, then the volume will be about 68 dB. But as you increase the voltage up to 28VDC, then the max volume raises to beyond 100 dB. While you probably won't use the Amseco PAL-328N as a siren, you can configure it on many panels to mimic some keypad sounds to increase the volume of those sounds. This can be very helpful for ensuring that you hear any Entry and Exit Delay sounds produced by your system's keypad. This can also be good for increasing the volume of system zone faults and chimes. We have seen the Amseco PAL-328N work great with wired systems, and it can also be used very nicely with many wireless all-in-one alarm panels, including the Honeywell LYNX Touch Systems. If you have been looking for an easy way to increase the sound of certain keypad sounds, then this might be the solution you need.
