Alarm Siren 5" 115 dB 12 VDC is rated 3.75 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Siren for the moneyBought this to add to my security systems last month. Hooked it up to a 12VDC power supply and it nearly broke my eardrums. Not sure why other folks find it doesn't sound loud but I can vouch for the noise it makes. You will hear it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and LoudI installed two of these sirens to my in-home intrusion alarm. The previous alarm had such a high pitch that I had problems hearing it because of my tone-deafness. These 5" sirens are loud and have an audible range that I can hear perfectly. They were easy to install too.

Could staff or someone please post audio samples of both modes? I am confused as to what the sound of the non yelp mode is. Is it a hi-lo euro or a steady buzz like police car horns?

Asked by: Annonymous
Please see video above for a demonstration of hookup and sound samples of this product.

I don't understand your current measurements. You say 200ma at 12VDC. That's 12*0.2=2.4 watts. However you say this is a 15 watt unit. Which is it?

Asked by: zimm0who0net
That peak wattages which just mean maximum surge power for short period.

What method is use to connect this sirien to an alarm system?

Asked by: Curtman
There are contact on some of the older alarm boxes that allow you to do this but if it's the newer models then you out of luck unless they have some form of relay contact point.
