Sounder for Security Systems

Cartell announces the release of the AA-1 Annunciator. The Alarm Alert One is a universal sounder that has a piezo-type Mallory Sonalert audible signal device. Suitable for any security alarm panel, home automation panel, etc., the AA-1 requires just two wires: power positive and power negative.


Designed with the security professional in mind, the AA-1 has filled a niche where an inexpensive, intuitive and easy-to-install audible device is needed. Sleek in design, it can be flush mounted in any single-gang electric box. Requiring just 10-20 VDC, the AA-1 offers a maximum 70 dB. It has a manual volume control knob and may be muted.

“The AA-1 fills a need for many security professionals when adding a keypad or key chime is not an option,” says Jonathan Bohannon, President/CEO of Cartell. “Its sleek, white appearance allows it to blend in with any décor without being intrusive or gaudy.”

Of course, it is one of three sounders available for use with the Cartell line of vehicle detection systems. Coupled with their professional systems, the AA-1, CT-A1 indoor sounders and CT-11 outdoor, weather-proof sounder allow the home owner to be alerted as soon as a vehicle enters the driveway, taking away the element of surprise from drive-up visitors.
