The Informer15 Speaker is a 15-watt, IP-enabled indoor and outdoor speaker. The Informer15 can be used as a warning and alert device with both audible and visual indicators in hazardous locations. The audible capabilities include locally stored high-quality, high-powered tones and voice messages. The visual indicators include the use of external devices* such as: message board/scrolling display sign support, strobes, lights, and beacons. The Informer15 can be equipped with up to four local initiation devices (external switches*) to activate the unit locally and to the Commander® controller for mass notification communications.  
The Informer15 Speaker has an internal 15-watt amplifier/driver to deliver tone warnings and intelligible voice messages from Informer15 stored memory. The Informer15 also has several unique capabilities when working with the Federal Signal Commander software. Using Commander software, the Informer15 can play text-to-speech, stream WAV files or can broadcast live PA. In addition, Commander software can perform a talk/listen to individual Informer15’s to allow call box type communications. The Informer15 also has remote volume control for optimizing sound levels across your alerting area. The remote volume control also includes an ambient-noise-monitoring capability to automatically adjust the volume depending on external noise levels. 
The Informer15 allows connection of up to four external switches to activate predefined alert events. The Informer15 can be programmed and configured as a standalone device to only use the inputs to activate the Informer15. This may be useful if the location has no network connectivity, but where voice and tone alerts from locally activated inputs is required. The Informer15 can be networked later and the activations can be brought into the Commander system for full system capability. When the Informer15 is networked using the Commander software, alerts initiated at the Informer15 can be used to activate other devices. The Commander software system can also alert emergency personnel via email, SMS, and hand-held radios using optional messaging software.
