Title: AN ACCESSORY FOR PROVIDING A DYNAMICALLY CHANGEABLE ALARM SIGNAL IN AN ALARM INSTALLATION
Abstract:
An accessory (100) for an alarm installation (102) is provided. The alarm installation (102) comprises at least one automatic sensor (107) and an alarm control unit adapted to detect when an automatic sensor has been triggered and provide a first output (109) for activating a first warning signal generated by a first signal emitting device (106). The alarm control unit may be adapted to monitor the trigger event. The accessory (100) receives either a second output from the alarm installation or an output from a manually operable trigger (108) based on personal observation as a second input to the accessory (100) which activates a second warning signal generated by the first (106) or a second signal emitting device (127). The second warning signal is distinguishable from the first signal and is configured to have at least one characteristic that conveys that a situation or location is requiring urgent attention.
