Voice Paging, Loud Ringing and Alert Notification

SIP Audio Alerter (part #8180)


The 8180 SIP Audio Alerter is a SIP compliant PoE network audio device for voice paging, loud ringing and alert notification. The 8180 can be registered as two endpoints. When registered with a SIP server, one endpoint will play an audio file from internal memory upon ring detection (e.g. telephone loud ringing, alert notification). The second endpoint will auto-answer for voice paging and offer two-way talkback.

Equipped with a high efficiency integrated amplifier and tuned high quality loud speaker, the 8180 is typically eight times louder than a telephone speaker. If the optional Algo 1185 Horn Speaker (weatherproof) is used, then the 8180 can be twenty times louder. Several audio files are pre-loaded into the 8180 internal memory for ring/alert sounds, however, users may also record or upload custom audio files, music, sound effects, or voice announcements.

Key Features

    • Ambient noise monitoring automatically adjusts speaker volume to cope especially well in variable noise environments
    • High quality speaker for clarity of page and alert notifications
    • Customizable with a selection of pre-loaded ring tones/alerts or upload/record custom WAV files
    • Scalable solution supporting simultaneous multicast for large areas or multi-sites
    • Outputs for external speaker, slave amplifier, and relay (e.g. visual alerter, paging)
    • PoE and supporting common central provisioning protocols

Common Applications

    • Loud ringer in noisy or variable noise environments (e.g. classroom, restaurant, machine shop)
    • Voice paging (e.g. warehouse, workshop, office)
    • Alert notification for security, call center (e.g. threshold), process control, safety/emergency events
    • Outdoor ringing, paging or alerting (e.g. yard, car lot)
    • Multicast wide area mass notification/E911/safety announcements or alerts (e.g. plant, campus)
    • SIP interface with ambient noise compensation for existing speaker(s) or analog input to a paging amplifier
    • Visual notification in quiet or noise sensitive areas (e.g. church, hospital, theater, court room)
