Courtesy: Siemens.Siemens' Intelligent Voice Communication systems, once reserved only for high-end facilities, now deliver to small and mid-sized buildings. The Intelligent Voice Communication systems are networkable fire panels that leverage fire and voice networking (VoIP) technology to deliver multiple unique messages simultaneously via clear digital voice. The voice communication systems allow customized messages to reach specific area at the same time. The VoIP networking is integrated into the same copper or fiber connection for clearer audio distribution. The Intelligent Voice Communication systems meet requirements as both fire alarm system and emergency communication system (UL 864 and UL 2572).
