Individual planning for the optimal urban siren system
Sirens have technically developed in the last few years. Accordingly, it is necessary taking into account all important parameters (sound pressure, building development, ambient noise, site conditions, etc.) to select the right locations where to install the electronic sirens. Our specialists therefore plan each siren system individually and thus find both the optimal locations and the appropriate electronic siren models. In addition to location criteria such as hazards, immission, topographical, meteorological and structural conditions, economic aspects are also taken into account.
In urban warning systems, often there is also a kind of dual use, with some electronic sirens being used specifically to alert the fire department. In addition to a central control center, which monitors and manages the entire siren system, the fire department sirens are often triggered by a simple local control unit at the push of a button. Sometimes loudspeakers can also be integrated in buildings to warn the fire department.
In addition to radio, the activation of the sirens via a dedicated line is also a common method. Communication connections such as VPN or GPRS are also possible. Of course, the individual communication media can also be combined to increase the reliability of a system. The experts at HÖRMANN Warnsysteme were not only involved in the development of the siren network in Germany at that time, but can also draw on the experience of a number of installed mass warning systems in cities and municipalities in Germany and abroad.
