Title
(EN) ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITION DETECTOR WITH AUDIBLE ALARM AND VOICE IDENTIFIER
(FR) DETECTEUR AMBIANT AVEC ALARME SONORE ET IDENTIFICATEUR VOCAL
Abstract
(EN)
Due to the presence of various environment condition detectors in the home and businesses such as smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, natural gas detectors, etc., each having individual but similar sounding alarm patterns, it can be difficult for occupants of such dwellings to immediately determine the specific type of environmental condition that exists during an alarm condition. The present invention comprises an environmental condition detector (10) using both tonal pattern alarms (85, 95, 105) and pre-recorded voice messages (90, 100, 110) to indicate information about the environmental condition being sensed. Single-station battery-powered and 120 VAC detectors are described as are multiple-station interconnected 120 VAC powered detectors. The pre-recorded voice messages describe the type of environmental condition detected or the location (50, 115) of the environmental condition detector sensing the condition, or both, in addition to the tonal pattern alarm. Provisions are made for multi-lingual pre-recorded voice messages (60).

Compte tenu de la présence de divers détecteurs d'ambiance dans les locaux résidentiels et professionnels détecteurs de fumée, de monoxyde de carbone, de gaz naturel, etc - assortis chacun de systèmes d'alarme analogues, les occupants des lieux peuvent avoir des difficultés à déterminer d'emblée la nature précise de l'incident en cas de déclenchement de l'alerte. Cette invention concerne un détecteur ambiant (10) associé à la fois à une alarme sonore (85, 95, 105) et à des messages vocaux pré-enregistrés (90, 100, 110) renseignant sur la nature de l'incident qui a déclenché l'alerte. L'invention concerne aussi bien des détecteurs seuls, à batterie et alimentés en 120 V continu que des détecteurs multi-station interconnectés fonctionnant sous 120 V continu. Parallèlement à l'alarme sonore, les messages vocaux pré-enregistrés renseignent sur le type d'anomalie détectée ou sur l'emplacement (50, 115) du détecteur qui s'est déclenché, voire sur les deux à la fois. Possibilité de diffuser des messages vocaux en plusieurs langues (60).
