System Sensor's ExitPoint, now with voice messaging
System Sensor, a Honeywell company, has improved its ExitPoint directional sounder to include voice messaging. It's being marketed as an "audible exit sign." Trials using ExitPoint have already shown an improvement of up to 75 percent in evacuation times in smoky conditions versus a situation with no directional sounder, and System Sensor believes the addition of a recorded alert message will increase that improvement. In between the voice instructions, ExitPoint's integral audio amplifier produces a pulsating noise consisting of broadband low, mid and high sounds.
