Submitted on 09/21/2020 Alarm Grid
The WBOX 0E-1GANGSIRN is a single-gang flush mount piezo siren that produces sounds of up to 105 dB. It can conveniently fit into a single-gang electrical box, making it nice and compact for regular use. The device conveniently connects to the bell terminals on the panel, and it operates as a siren for the system. This helps to ensure that building occupants are alerted when an intrusion or fire alarm occurs on the system. Overall, the WBOX 0E-1GANGSIRN is a nice smaller siren option for a wired alarm system. We give the WBOX 0E-1GANGSIRN a 5-Star rating.
There are many positive aspects to consider for the WBOX 0E-1GANGSIRN. The siren has a very compact design, as it measures in at just 4.5"L x 2.75"W x 1.0"D. As mentioned earlier, it fits neatly into a single-gang electrical box for a clean installation. The siren is quite loud for its size, as it can produce sounds of up to 105 dB. While this isn't the loudest siren on the market, it will still work quite well in a medium to large home or a small business. We also really appreciate the fact that the WBOX 0E-1GANGSIRN doesn't need much power, as it will only draw 20 mA of current at 24VDC. It will draw 65 mA of current at 12VDC.
There are not many downsides regarding the WBOX 0E-1GANGSIRN. Since this is a wired siren, you will need to physically connect it with the panel or the power supply that it is being used with. If you aren't used to wiring, then this may be a difficult task. There is also the consideration that this siren isn't the most powerful option available. The maximum sound output rating of 105 dB is fine for most homes and small businesses, but most commercial users will want something more powerful. All things considered, these downsides are very minor. We can easily award the WBOX 0E-1GANGSIRN a 5-Star score.
Good: Compact, Single-Gang Installation, Loud for its Size, Low Current Draw
Bad: Must be Wired, More Powerful Sirens Available
