    Sigma Alarm Siren

    Probably one for Andy but all help is good help.

    today when going to work i went thru a BIG puddle, didnt think anything of it at 1st but when i went to lock my car i didnt hear the siren chirp.

    had a quick play with it when i got home and i guess i have gotten water in it somehow as when you shake it, you get wet hands and the siren gets to normal power (but then back down to low volume when u let go)

    question is....

    are cat 1 alarms indefinate of warrenty for things like this?

    and / or

    can you buy new sirens on their own? plus as its a Sigma S32 does the Toad A606i siren fit (as i think they are practically the same alarm, but traded under a different name??)

    Warranty answer is no it's not covered, can you get a siren on it's own yes for the same sorts of reason you have described, are they the same i don't think so Clifford, Avital and the other Directed range are from the same manufacture but the sirens are not interchangeable between make due to the way the alarm brain and the siren interpret the signal sent, where as some alarms with the same make but different model are.

    Give it a couple of days to dry out, it will probably be ok.
    Because of the design of the horn enclosure the sound can't get out past the water.
    They are usually quite waterproof, so it should be OK.

    I'd go with give it a few days to dry out, maybe remove it for the time being (when the alarms disarmed of course) so it can be in a warm enviorment

    To add the S30, S32 and S34 share the same siren. The Toad ai606 is a completly different alarm but I believe the very latest share the same siren aswell because not only do they look the same but they have the same wiring plug

    I'm fairly certain that the Cavalier I have that i'm scraping has a battery back up "S" series siren on it anyway if you do need a new one

    oki doki, cheers for the replies.

    ill whip off the siren in the morning and try dry it out.
    funnily enough after shaking it around when i went out later on tonight i heard the chirp alot clearer so hopefully the water is dropping out slowly.

    if i do need a new one ill contact u Andy
