SOS (Siren-Operated Sensor) has introduced two new products to ensure emergency vehicles can gain fast access to any gated facility by simply activating the vehicle siren, saving precious response time in an emergency. The SOS-12 Siren-Operated Sensor has been completely redesigned with a sleeker look to blend into surroundings, an up-front microphone to quickly detect the siren "yelp," and updated circuitry. The new SOS-RM Remote Microphone extends the reach of the SOS-12 sensor. It can be placed up to 50 feet away from the SOS-12 unit. This allows the SOS-12 unit to be installed in a cabinet inside a guard shack or any other remote location.
