Wireless Mailbox Alert with Talking Receiver
Tired of trudging out in the rain or snow to check if the mail was delivered? The STI Wireless Mailbox Alert with Voice Receiver immediately lets you know when the mail has arrived, eliminating repeat trips out to an empty mailbox. When the mail is delivered, the sensor sends a wireless radio signal to the included 4-Channel Voice Receiver. The programmable receiver identifies the mail has arrived (i.e. ding-dong, mailbox alert, mailbox open, etc.). Supervised for low battery and signal reception. The voice receiver offers ten tones/tunes and speaks 53 selectable words (English or Spanish).

  • Marketing is a key differentiator for some security vendors
  • End users generally rely more on integrators/dealers to make recommendations, so marketing is just background
  • Security manufacturers still need to work a lot harder on communicating effectively with end users
