Currently most hard-wired systems utilise a P.A. System, these systems have a range of inherent risks i.e. if mains power fails or the P.A. cabling is damaged by fire etc., you no longer have a working emergency alert system. The deployment of AARC-EVAC™ Controllers mitigates these risks, even if one unit is damaged by a fire or other causes the rest of the units will still work.

Our standard AARC-EVAC Controllers receive emergency alert messages that have been triggered by AARC-EVAC remotes. From there, we can build you a tailored emergency alert solution by adding one, any two or all of the following options: audio speakers, visual alert beacons and repeaters.

The unit is designed to operate as a single unit or as part of a network of self-contained AARC-EVAC™ Wireless Linked Evac Controllers. They incorporate an in-built UPS and are fully self-contained.

When operating the controllers as part of a network, different evacuation instructions can be broadcast in different locations.

External Horn and Box Speakers

AARC-EVAC™ Controllers can be supplied with between two, three or four external horn and/or box speakers. These speakers are wired to the Evac Controller. When triggered the controller’s Wireless Receiver activates standard emergency alert sirens and customisable audio messages. Speakers can be used in conjunction with Visual Alert Beacons.

Indoor/Outdoor horn speaker 8Ω 10W with mounting bracket. Size: (W)200 x (H)136 x (D) 206mm.
Indoor wall mount box speaker 8Ω 15W with mounting bracket. Size: (W)150 x (H)198 x (D) 128mm.

Visual Alert Beacons

Visual Alert Beacons provide a visual representation of the message the controller has received, to convey the alert to hearing impaired persons or in areas where noise pollution may prevent audio notification. Emergency Alert Beacons consist of three vertical beacons ( Red, Amber and Blue ) attached to the front of the Repeater Unit. When an “Evacuation” alert is triggered, the red beacon will flash, for an “Alert” message the amber beacon will flash (clear when not flashing) and for “S.O.S.” the beacons will flash blue. For systems with optional Lockdown, when a “Lock Down” is triggered the blue beacon will flash.


Repeaters are used to re-transmit the message to any Controller outside of the range of the remote which originally triggered the message.
