A buzzer or beeper is an audio signaling device, which may be mechanical, electromechanical, or piezoelectric [piezo for short ranged]. Typical uses of buzzers and beepers include alarm devices, timers, and confirmation of user input such as a mouse click or keystroke. It’s easy for employees to worry about not hearing a buzzer when that guy is out the front. So with this in mind, it has always struck me as odd that builders rarely ever put wired doorbells in their facility when building out a commercial space. I assume that there may be situations when businesses, clients and customers may not need a loud doorbell or alarm, but more often than not. You would surely want to know when someone comes to the front or back of the facility. It’s one of those situations when it’s better to have a door buzzer installed than not.
BUZZER PANEL SECURITY
If a visitor notification system is not installed at your facility, but you want one. Running the bell wire and installing a complete system isn’t as feasible as you may think. A wireless system may be the answer for many businesses, clients and customers. Loud, industrial wireless doorbells can be installed and you can have a functional buzzer panel system in your facility in a matter of seconds.
