Electrical Engineering/Alarm Bell with different ringtones.


Dear Prof Cleggsan

Is it possible to customise alarm Bell product with different ringtones?.

This could be possible by designing a remote control which will have push buttons Triggered for setting different ringtones for the wired Alarm Bell product?.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

It depends on the construction of the alarm bell.  If it is an electromechanical device with clanger that strikes the metal bell housing you could not program it for ringtones.

If it is an electronically generated sounds it would be possible to provide various ringtones and push button actuation as you proposed.  It would require the services of an electronic engineer to do the design work.

Their also, smartphone apps for bringing fire alarm ringtones to the phone which could be patched to an external amp/speaker for large area acoustic coverage.
