Newest Simplex TrueAlert ES Technology Completes Revolutionary Line of Addressable Notification Appliances


Tyco is introducing the fire alarm industry’s first addressable notification appliances with individual on / off audio control – a new innovation in notification technology that promises to enhance protection, reduce costs and simplify building operations.

The new line of intelligent SIMPLEX TrueAlert ES audio speakers takes notification to another level of capability, safety and value for architects and engineers, installing contractors, building owners and facility managers. TrueAlert ES speakers are specially designed to provide high quality audio output, improved aesthetics, and targeted emergency message delivery. At the same time, the speakers offer all the other benefits of the SIMPLEX TrueAlert ES family of fully addressable notification appliances, including easier, more flexible system design, cost-effective installation, and revolutionary device self-testing.

“This new family of wall and ceiling mount speakers expands and strengthens the TrueAlert ES suite of addressable notification appliances” said Peter Ryan, Senior Commercialization Manager for SIMPLEX products, Tyco Fire Protection Products. “This is the first family of fire alarm system speakers where the user can individually select which appliances broadcast each audio message, giving unprecedented flexibility and control over emergency messaging and response. As part of the TrueAlert ES family of notification appliances, they also have revolutionary self-test capability that can help improve safety, reduce business cost and ensure systems stay in top working order.”

SIMPLEX TrueAlert ES speakers are available in red, white and black, and wall or ceiling mounted audio only and audio visual models. They are sold through Tyco’s North America integrated solutions and services businesses – Tyco SimplexGrinnell and Tyco Integrated Fire & Security – and through other authorized Tyco distributors around the world.
