Wired Alarm Sirens
Alarm sirens are some of the most important devices that can be added to a security system. These devices are great for scaring off any intruders who decide to conduct a break-in. By using a siren, intruders are less likely to stick around to steal property and cause further destruction. In some cases, a siren will be so loud that it will be physically uncomfortable to remain on the premises. Alarm sirens are also very useful for alerting others about a break-in or a serious emergency. Most alarm sirens are loud enough that the occurrence will be heard both by any people inside the building, as well any people who are nearby. This way, a trusty neighbor or a bypasser can alert the authorities even if the user is not around. Alarm sirens can even save lives in the event of a fire or an outbreak of deadly carbon monoxide gas.
Most wireless alarm systems come already included with a built-in siren. However many users choose to add hardwired external alarm sirens to their wireless security systems. This is because wired sirens are typically louder than internal sirens. The standard maximum sound output for an internal siren is typically 85 dB. However, external hardwired sirens can provide a staggering output of up to 120 dB. This is about as loud as a rock concert. At volumes this loud, it will be physically uncomfortable to remain in the area. This will help prevent any unwanted intruders from sticking around and causing serious damage. Additionally, many external sirens can be used in an outdoor setting. One important thing to remember is that an external siren kit is typically required to use a wired siren with a wireless alarm system. This is because Such kits are available for purchase on the Alarm Grid website.
On the other hand, wired alarm sirens can readily connect with wired alarm systems. No external kit is required to do this. Since wired alarm systems do not come pre-included with any sort of siren, adding an external sounder to a wired alarm system is very important. Otherwise, a user will be fully dependent on the sounder of their keypad for receiving any sort of audible alerts. Wired sirens are incredibly easy to set up with wired alarm systems. The siren can simply be hardwired directly into the bell output on the alarm system for a very easy installation.
Some alarm sirens also include strobe lights. A strobe consists of bright, rapidly flashing lights that activate at the same time as an alarm siren. These can be very helpful for visually identify an alarm in the event of an emergency situation. They are particularly useful for people who suffer from hearing loss. It is also possible to use a strobe and a siren as two separate devices. That said, people without hearing issues should have absolutely no problem identifying when their alarm siren has been activated. These devices are very loud, and they will surely attract the attention of anyone who is in the area.
