    Recordable voice sirens are one of my favorites. The Elk 120 is a little
    pricey, but you can do some neat stuff with it with its 4 voice channels and
    4 inputs. I have one at a school that blasts a message throughout the
    building whenever anybody arms the alarm as a warning. It has a different
    message that plays through out whenever somebody enters the building as
    well. Of course it has the typical "burglary burglary burglary" message
    that plays when the alarm goes off as well.

    Since I set it up they have not had a single entry or exit error.

    "The alarm has been activated. Exit the building immediatley. If you need
    to stay in the building contact somebody with a valid alarm code and disarm
    the alarm" or something like that.

    "The alarm system is active. You must disarm now."

    I have another application where a business has deliveries dropped off in
    lockable containers in their side yard. The carrier puts the delivery in
    the container and then locks the container. This requires them to leave a
    side gate unlocked. We set up an armored contact on the gate. It trips a
    trigger output on their alarm that plays a custom message. "Delivery
    drivers ONLY beyond this point. ALL OTHERS ARE TRESSPASSING. You are being
    video taped. Tresspassers will be prosecuted." Then we set the alarm up to
    page the business owner whenever the gate is opened. It is a great stop
    gap. System. We also use the trigger output to trip a relay which activates
    the alarm input on their digital video recorder to switch that camera to
    real time whenever that gate is opened. Made for an interesting interaction
    when a delivery driver tried to lie about making a delivery.

    "Golly, there is no video of you in that area, and gee... you never opened
    the gate. Maybe you should double check your truck."

    "Self-destruct activated. This building will self-destruct in 20
    seconds. Please evacuate." Repeat ad nauseum.

    internet links, etc.

    Thanks.

  5. "Self-destruct activated. This building will self-destruct
    Napco's RP1-CAe2 keypads have a programmable system ready
    message. Most dealers leave it at the standard "System Ready"
    but you cab change it. After we installed a new P9600 system in
    my church many years ago I was demonstrating the capabilities of
    the system to one of the board members. I set the message to
    something other different.

    Unfortunately, I forgot to change it back. Early the next
    morning a sweet lady from the congregation who volunteered to
    clean the church each week showed up as usual. She disarmed the
    system with the code the pastor gave and saw "Attention Burglar"
    Second line: "Go ahead. Make my day".

    She read, "Attention Burglar", panicked and dialed 911. I'm not
    sure of the details but I think she told them there was an
    intruder in the building. The cops were not amused.
    Fortunately, the pastor shared my sense slightly wicked of humor.

    I install a lot of P1632 and ytou can't display that much text on an RP1CAe2
    keypad. Is there something different about the interaction with a 9600 that
    allows you to display two lines of text?

    How does that work in programming?

    Hmmm ........ that seems to work out to be 17 characters on the first
    line.
    Yes and you've again proved it to be true.

    Seventeen on the first, twenty on the second (if you include the period
    after "Go ahead"). On a 32 character two line display...
    Interesting... Bass must truly be a programming genius. Can we say
    "stupid", people?

    Another Bass fairytale exposed. "Kicks and Giggles" abound. I just
    love this group!!

    I will go along with his admittance of having a wicked sense of humor as
    true, however, I believe he has serious mental lapses when he posts his
    fairytales. Doesn't he know who reads these things. He gets busted everytime
    with his BS. And God help us all when he gets something right. Amazing!
    You know he is going to take that as a compliment.
    Speaking of stupid, has anyone heard of a store or chain of stores, I think
    in California, called "Stupid Prices"? Are they trashy type discount dollar
    stores or more like a Costco or Sam's Club?

    Back to the post at hand.....

  12. I used one of those voice boards to record.

    defenses activated tear Gas release in 20 second,etc.

    Poor Bell telco guy almost had a heart attack when he accidently triggered
    the alarm system at the radio station.
    he really thought he was going to get it.
    since i work for a radio station with a generous sound studio the recording
    really sounded real out of one of those 50's miltary movies.

    Life is fun when you get revenge on the telco's

    I can't seem to figure that out how he got all those letters on one
    keypad either.

    Perhaps he put two keypads side by side.

    I guess we'll just have to wait and let the Napco "expert" tell us how
    he does it.
     
  15. I install a lot of P1632 and ytou can't display that much text on an RP1CAe2
    Look at the entry for "System Ready" message. BTW, I mostly used
    the Gemini P3200 and P9600 models. I've only installed a few of
    the P1632 model.

    Back when I was doing car electronic installs, we got in our first
    "talking" car alarm... when triggered, it would spew out a very whiny,
    pathetic-sounding "I'M BEING TAMPERED WITH!"

    We were pondering if there was any way to reprogram the voice... one
    installer suggested a female voice screaming, "I'M BEING VIOLATED!"

    Heh... And if the female's voice has a very thick uppercrust English
