Wideband IP Voice Paging, Loud Ringing & Emergency Alerting PoE Horn Speaker – Outdoor Rated
The 8186 is a weatherproof SIP compliant IP horn / loudspeaker for voice paging, loud ringing, and emergency / safety / security notification and alerting. The speaker is PoE and does not require an additional amplifier. Common application environments include: warehouse, factory (e.g., OSHA), production floor (e.g. food and beverage processing), utility plant, machine shop, garage, parking lot/outdoor yard, school playground and gymnasium, farm, bus or train terminal, etc.
VIDEO: 8186 SIP Horn Speaker Feature Overview
Wideband G.722 codec (HD voice) support in the speaker provides optimum speech clarity and intelligibility. Voice paging and emergency announcements can be easier to understand with wideband, particularly in a noisy environment. The wideband capability of the horn speaker improves STI-PA intelligibility scores, which is important in meeting NFPA 72 requirements and the NEMA SB-40 2010 standard for emergency communication in education.
The 8186 speaker registers as a third party SIP endpoint with all leading premise or hosted UC providers. For multiple speaker deployments, additional devices do not require a SIP license. A single registered speaker can be configured to multicast to any number and mix of additional Algo speakers, strobes and/or paging adapters as required, providing cost-effective scalability using a minimum of network traffic. For multicast page applications, zoned paging is supported as a SIP extension or as a keypress selectable zone.
In a Polycom VVX environment, the 8186 speakers may be configured to join a Polycom Group Page for coverage in common areas or for sound reinforcement. No SIP registration is necessary.
An integrated microphone in the horn speaker enables talkback. The microphone also has the capability to listen to ambient noise and automatically increase page volume when necessary. This feature enables a consistent ratio of page to ambient noise level without being unnecessarily loud.
The 8186 SIP Horn Speaker is weatherproof and suitable for both indoor and outdoor locations when properly installed. For ease and simplicity, the speaker can announce its static or DHCP IP address so access to an intuitive web interface makes configuring the device straightforward. Additionally, the speaker supports auto-provisioning for minimal touch configuration.
Emergency Notification Alerting
An auxiliary input allows an optional wall button (e.g., 1202 Call Button as shown) or external switch to initiate a SIP call or play a WAV file stored in the speaker’s memory for notification alerting.
A WAV file may also be played by dialling the speaker’s Ring extension, configured for ring/announcement activation only. Up to 10 Ring extensions are available to register on a single speaker (or 8188, 8189, 8301) for applications requiring different types of emergency notification alerting (e.g., lockdown, evacuation, etc.). A Call To Cancel feature can be configured in the 8186 to allow emergency alerting to play continuously for the duration of the event until a designated extension registered to the speaker is called to stop the alert. Any combination and number of Algo IP endpoints can receive a multicast for such emergency alerting.
