Example how AR101 works in apartment application

Alarm panels need to be installed in an apartment for monitoring alarm conditions including medical, fire, panic, burglar other security conditions via PBX or telephone line. AR101 is also installed in a manager room via telephone line. When Nancy in Room 200 pushes a panic button on an alarm panel, the alarm panel dials a pre-programmed manager’s telephone number for telephone line that is connected to AR101. The “PANIC” information with the apartment room number is transmitted from the apartment alarm panel to AR101. The “PANIC” LED display on AR101 turns on, the room “200” is displayed and siren sounds inside AR101. The manager or attendant in the manager’s room pushes SIREN RESET button on AR101, hears voice from Room 200 saying “Help-my husband is having heart attack-help”. The manager or attendant calls 911 for calling paramedic and rushes to Room 200 to see John or Nancy. Without 2-way audio option and compatible alarm panels, you do not hear the voice from Nancy in Room 200 nor you can not talk with Nancy.
