WBOX 0E-OUTDSIREN - 120 dB Wired, Outdoor Siren Reviews
Submitted on 08/12/2019 Alarm Grid
The WBOX 0E-OUTDSIREN is one of the loudest sirens that we carry. This is a 120 dB siren that is suitable for use in virtually any environment. With a 120 decibel rating, this siren is capable of producing sounds that are about as loud as a jet plane at takeoff. This siren is so loud that anyone standing in its proximity will feel very uncomfortable and want to get away from it as soon as possible. Our technicians have confirmed that the siren is one of the loudest things they have ever heard. Testing this product was not enjoyable.
There are a few things we want to say about the WBOX 0E-OUTDSIREN. The first is that most users will not need a siren this loud. The average residential user will be happy with the internal sounder that comes built into their panel. If they need something a little louder, then they might consider a wireless Z-Wave siren like the Qolsys IQ Siren. Only users who really need something absurdly loud will want to consider the WBOX 0E-OUTDSIREN. This could include an industrial location that needs a loud siren that can be heard over heavy machinery.
The other thing to keep in mind is that the WBOX 0E-OUTDSIREN is a hardwired siren. This means that you will likely need extra equipment to use it, especially if you have a wireless panel. To use a wired siren, you often need an external power supply, backup battery, relay, and transformer. This is a lot of extra equipment just to add a single feature. Of course, it might be your only option if you absolutely need a very loud siren. You will also need to connect everything together, which can be difficult for a DIY user.
Bottom line, we understand that some users absolutely need the loudest sound option available. The WBOX 0E-OUTDSIREN meets that criteria. We do not think this is the best siren for the majority of end users. But if you are in a situation where only the loudest siren will do, then this is the one to go with. That is why we give it 5 Stars.
