hey Di wires Dylan here with alarm grid today we're going to review the IQ uh panel 4 and how loud the internal siren is so the IQ panel 4 has about four speakers located at the bottom here it has an internal siren that is about 85 DB that's equivalent to a food blender or propellar plane about 1,000 ft up uh it's plenty allowed to deter any criminals or Intruders from entering the pre uh premises and it is quite loud and quite disturbing uh so we will play this in the video if you are wearing headphones you might want to turn the volume down once we get to that part and let's go ahead and test this out okay so we have the IQ panel 4 here uh and now to trigger the siren what I'm going to do is I'm simply just going to trigger a panic option uh so we have the Panic options in the bottom right hand corner here this will give us police fire and auxiliary uh this is going to sound for any of these as long as you do not press these silent alarm options so I'm going to go ahead and press the police option here and again for headphone users you might want to turn the volume down as this going to be quite loud all right so we're going to go ahead and disarm okay so that was the internal siren uh for the IQ panel 4 quite loud but you do also have other options if you wanted uh sirens in different locations of the home or just louder Desales uh one of the easiest options to hook up is the IQ siren that has a decibal rating of about 105 uh so again the internal siren here is 85 so if you add that zwave s and it's a simple plug-in module that's going to be 105 uh you can also hook up external wired Sirens you're going to need a wired to wireless converter such as the pg9 wlsh W8 which is the power G converter or if you have the uh 39.5 megaherz version of this system you can hook up the hardwire 16f device uh so both those will allow wired Sirens to be hooked up and again give you more uh Sirens across the home across the location we're going to have another video reviewing how to hook those up so be sure to stay tuned for that all right so that was the siren um hopefully it wasn't as loud in the video as it was for me uh so yeah so whenever you're system sets off the alarm be either by the Panic option that we tested or just by a regular intrusion zone or Life Safety device triggering the actual alarm uh that siren is going to sound and toer off any Intruders uh if you did like the video please like the video subscribe to our Channel and hit the Bell icon to be notified about any future videos we release if you had any questions for us we have a few ways to get in contact uh we have a phone number the phone number is and thank you for watching
