Cygnus wireless alarms are suitable for sites big and small, as they are capable of operating up to 480 devices in 15 zones. Within each zone, you can have up to 32 devices connected via the wireless mesh network. Full control over the zones can be gained using a control panel. When the alarm is sounded, the control panel will receive a notification of the exact location. The notification can be received on site staff phones or site radios.
