Safety Critical Systems
HiQ Sound maintains several large site that employ voice alarm systems, these are usually found on industrial sites where there is a significant danger to life from the failure of normal operations however rare. Such systems are fully monitored and feature automatic change over of audio equipment to a spare in the event of a detected failure, and work in conjunction with the fire alarm system. The monitoring extends to each microphone and speaker on the system.
