Submitted on 09/17/2019 Alarm Grid
The WBOX 0E-PIEZOSIRN is a small sounder that you can mount on the metal enclosure for your hardwired alarm panel. It is great for residential use if you just need a small and simple device that will allow your panel to produce some sounds. Our technicians have found that it is easy to use, and it is not a demanding device in any sense. That is why we give it a Five Star Rating.
Most hardwired alarm systems do not come with any sounder or noisemaker. That is why you will typically see users adding hardwired sirens to their hardwired systems. If you need a sounder for large home or for a commercial or industrial location, then the WBOX 0E-PIEZOSIRN is probably not for you. It is too quiet, and it just isn't going to give you the result of a more powerful siren. But if you just need something small and simple, then the WBOX 0E-PIEZOSIRN should be perfectly adequate for your needs.
There are many things to like about the WBOX 0E-PIEZOSIRN. For one, this device has a very low current draw. It's just 20mA @ 28VDC. This is great for users who don't want to exceed the maximum possible current draw for their panel. You probably won't have to add an external power supply or second battery to use this device. And it can be easily connected with your panel at the appropriate trigger output terminals. Another benefit is its wide operating range, which spans from 3VDC to 28VDC. You can even conveniently mount it right on your panel's metal enclosure.
At 90 dB, the WBOX 0E-PIEZOSIRN is surprisingly loud. It won't bother your neighbors, but it will alert everyone in a small home. And for many users, that's all they really need. This is a simple, straightforward device that we can definitely recommend in the right situation. For that reason, we give it a Five Star Rating.
