Formerly "HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013!!! Midnight Fire Alarm Sounding." 2013 is no more (and has been).

I DID IT AGAIN FOR 2014!!! IT'S BIGGER AND BETTER THAN THIS ONE!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTGfG-7OFU0

Remember that lame video I made of setting off a single fire alarm last year? Well, here's something a bit more epic that I have been wanting to do ever since then; setting off a bunch of fire alarms right at midnight to ring in the new year.

It went well, despite me forgetting to wire up 1/2 of the alarms (and I ran out of time). I think the mechanical horns I used pretty much stole the show.

All of the alarms here are alarms I have tested within the year 2012. It's my "year in review" in a way (I do have one I would like to do, but not sure if I would really go through with that plan).

(As of 1/1/15, this is now formerly "HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014!!! Midnight Fire Alarm Sounding," 2014 is now overwith). Oh, I did it again for 2015!!! Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgzRQ8OD8TE

THIS VIDEO CONTAINS FLASHING STROBES, DO NOT WATCH IF YOU ARE SENSITIVE TO FLASHING LIGHTS!!!

Due to the success of last year's video (THANK YOU for making it a success), I figured I would pull it off again, but put a little more effort into it. That's right, this year, ALL of the alarms shown here (but one alarm inentionally not wired up) went off without a hitch, even though I had some minor technical difficulties at the beginning. Other than that, it was a SUCCESS!!!

UPDATE 12/28/17; PLEASE DO NOT BUG ME TO DO IT FOR 2018 OR FOR ANY YEAR AFTER. I still enjoy fire alarms and elevators, but I feel like I am starting to get sick of the same thing over and over (aka, THIS THING). If i do happen to get back into the spirit to do one more of these GREAT, if not, OH WELL, don't moan and whine to me about it. I'm simply going to delete comments of people bugging me to do it/complain about it. Don't even bother.***

***I did it again for 2016. Click the link here to see that video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMNbKYex3j4***
***Title has been changed to "what I did for new years..." 2015 is now over.****

By extremely popular demand, I pulled it off again for 2015! Well, here it is. In this video, I have 30 alarms hooked up, most of which were electronic horns, and a few mechanical horns. While they seemed to dominate the audio of the video, you may be able to hear some of the electronic horns as well (piezo/sounder based alarms).

I blast the alarms for one minute or so, just so I don't annoy the neighbors too much; there is a FINE LINE between having fun with fire alarms and having so much fun that a bunch of angry neighbors come to your door (and possibly blowing out my camera's mic if it was louder). After all, this IS still the middle of the night. Luckily, I haven't had trouble with neighbors yet.

Also, there is a special tribute to all my viewers at the end of the video. This may take up a good portion of the video, but this whole thing wouldn't be possible without YOUR support and interest. Thank YOU to all my viewers in showing interest in some of the content I produce, whether or not it's elevator related, fire alarm related, or some random thing I may produce. Hope to see you all during the year.

1: It is a FELONY to pull a fire alarm or tamper with them in public, unless there is actually a fire, other emergency, or you have the authorization to do so in some fashion. However, this is being activated in a private, controlled, and legal environment. No fire departments were called when activating the alarm.

2: This video contains flashing lights from a strobe. Those prone to seizures from flashing lights SHOULD NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO.

I AM NOT responsible for any legal damages done for pulling a false alarm, or for any seizures. These are your decisions, not mine.

By even more popular demand, I pulled it off again for 2016! This time around, I managed to break a new record by wiring up 36 alarms, and of course, activating them at midnight! Like previous years, most of them were mechanical horns, with quite a bit of sounders in there as well. I also take this opportunity to thank all my viewers like you.

I blast the alarms for a little longer, but still enough where I don't annoy the neighbors too much; there is a FINE LINE between having fun with fire alarms and having so much fun that a bunch of angry neighbors come to your door (and possibly blowing out my camera's mic if it was louder). After all, this IS still the middle of the night. I still haven't had trouble with neighbors yet...

UPDATE 12/23/17; PLEASE DO NOT BUG ME TO DO IT FOR 2018 OR FOR ANY YEAR AFTER.

If i do happen to get back into the spirit to do one more of these GREAT, if not, OH WELL, don't moan and whine to me about it. Additionally, this is going to be my last video for a while, don't bug me or complain for me to make more videos in general. I am too busy in life. You may find out more in my pinned comment.***

THIS VIDEO CONTAINS MANY FLASHING STROBES AND LOUD NOISES, DO NOT WATCH IF YOU ARE SENSITIVE TO FLASHING LIGHTS AND LOUD NOISES!!! (Also, read the ENTIRE DESCRIPTION, there's a few important things).

The year of 2016, was an exciting one for me personally. I produced a few cool videos, hit 1,000,000+ views and counting, and I even had several new experiences, both elevator and alarm related, and even gained a few new interests. At the same time, it was quite a crazy year. As such, it can probably explain why it’s been a while since I made a video for this channel. First and foremost, I’m not dead, I’m alive and well, and quite obviously, and still have my collection (don't even ask if I'm giving anything away). However, to keep things simple, I have been extremely busy with a few other things and priorities that required much more of my attention and time. In addition, I needed a break from making videos to focus on these things, and a few other reasons which I won't get into.

However, to bring in 2017, I’m back in action! I know I said I wasn't sure if I was doing a special this year, but I'm out of my mini-hiatus for now for one of my seemingly highly anticipated videos of the season, and to continue a fun tradition to top that (I know some of you are already wondering if I will do this for 2018. While I appreciate the enthusiasm, as usual, the answer for that is POSSIBLY. I don't want make any promises that I can't fulfill, though).

I have 40 or so devices hooked up this time around, my largest yet. This will probably be the largest setup I will ever set up. It’s somewhat overwhelming for my power supplies to handle this many devices. It’s so much that I wired THREE DIFFERENT circuits to handle all the devices, which is explained at the end of the video. Two of which are powered by my Wheelock RPS-2440 power supply, which has two 2A 24VDC circuits, and another Reyed one, which also has a 2A 24VDC circuit. Both of these supply filtered DC, and have been used in numerous of my videos. My Monaco Vulcan 1, as much of a cool panel as it is, would not be able to handle this many devices, either coming from the NAC, or from the relay (plus, it’s FWR as well). In addition, I'm trying out a slightly new camera angle. It's a bit different, but I hope it's a fresh change. If I decide to continue these midnight fire alarm soundings, there may be a few new changes out there.

Some of you have been wondering how loud these particular setups are. I took a quick decibel reading while testing the setup, and it was approx. 86db, with a peak of 96db! It would not surprise me if setups in years past have had a similar decibel rating.

I don’t know for sure what 2017 will bring in terms of videos and adventures, whether they're related to elevators, fire alarms, or maybe a completely new topic or two I'm considering making a few videos on (they will be a surprise if I do roll them out, no promises on that, though), but we’ll see. In addition, I don’t know how frequent uploads will be, considering other priorities in my life; you’re just going to have to be patient with me. Don’t unsubscribe, I still hope to come out with something every once in a while. No matter what happens, good and/or bad, here’s to a happy, healthy, and safe 2017!

DISCLAIMER:

1: LOUD NOISE WHEN I SET OFF ALL THE ALARMS!!! Turn down your volume at the countdown!

2: It is a FELONY to falsely pull a fire alarm or tamper with them in public (i.e, “just for fun”), unless there is actually a fire, other emergency, or you have the authorization to do so in some fashion. However, this is being activated in a private, controlled, and legal environment. No fire departments were called when activating the alarm.

3: This video contains flashing lights from various strobes within this setup. Those prone to seizures from flashing lights SHOULD NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO.

4: I SUGGEST THAT YOU DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. Though, I have many devices hooked up, I have multiple circuits to power the entire array, and the power supplies I have use built in protection for overload. If you do so happen to try this at home, make sure your circuits are suitable for your power supply, and the power supplies that you use have some kind of protection.

I AM NOT responsible for any legal, physical, property, and/or medical related damages done for pulling a false alarm, blown eardrums/speakers, or for any seizures. These are your decisions, not mine.
