8188 SIP Ceiling Speaker

PoE Wideband IP Ceiling Speaker for Voice Paging, Notification Alerting & Playing Background Music

The 8188 is a SIP compliant IP ceiling speaker for voice paging, emergency notification and playing background music. The speaker is PoE and does not require an additional amplifier. The 8188 is UL2043 certified for installation in air handling spaces. Common application environments include a school, hospital, retail store and office spaces. A Hydrophobic Membrane Screen can be attached to the speaker for placement in areas subject to moisture (e.g. shower). Algo 8188 IP Ceiling Speaker for Voice Paging, Notification Alerting and Playing Music

Wideband G.722 codec (HD voice) support in the speaker provides optimum speech clarity and intelligibility. Voice paging and emergency announcements can be easier to understand with wideband, particularly in a noisy environment. The super-wideband frequency response enables music quality far superior to narrowband IP or transformer coupled analog speakers. Wideband audio capability is helpful in meeting OSHA requirements as well as the NEMA SB-40 2010 standard for emergency communication in education. To support the reference to the intelligibility requirements of NFPA 72, the 8188 speaker was measured to have a STI-PA intelligibility score of 0.95 in an office environment at 70 dBA level with ambient noise of 49 dBA.

The 8188 speaker registers as a 3rd party SIP endpoint with most hosted / cloud or premise VoIP telephone systems. For ease and simplicity, the 8188 can announce its static or DHCP IP address so access to an intuitive web interface makes configuring the device straight forward. Additionally, the speaker supports auto-provisioning for minimal touch configuration.

For multiple speaker deployments, additional devices do not require a SIP license. A single registered speaker can be configured to multicast to any number and mix of additional Algo speakers, strobes and/or paging adapters as required, providing cost effective scalability using a minimum of network traffic. For multicast page applications, zoned paging is supported as a SIP extension (50) or as a keypress selectable zone. RTP, Polycom Group Page, InformaCast and SA-Announce multicast types are supported.

Algo 8188 Multicast Paging

Where a IP telephone supports send/receive multicast, these devices may be configured to join the multicast including Algo IP speakers for providing additional coverage in a room/building environment. Audio will be streamed to all endpoints simultaneously. There is no limit to the number and combination of endpoints configured in a multicast.

An integrated microphone in the speaker supports talkback. The microphone can also be enabled to listen for ambient noise, and automatically increase page volume when necessary1. This features ensures a consistent ratio of page to ambient noise level without being unnecessarily loud.

Several audio files are pre-loaded into the 8188 internal memory for loud ringing / night bell applciations, however, users may also record or upload custom audio files, music, sound effects, or voice announcements if desired. Up to 10 Ring extensions are available to register on a single speaker, thereby allowing a single speaker to act as a alerter for several telephones by configuring different ring groups for each registered extension.

For ease and simplicity, the 8188 is PoE and can be installed as a blind-mount quickly into a drop ceiling. For additional stability of the speaker in the event the ceiling tile becomes weakened or damaged over time, two optional mounting accessories are available including the 8188TBR t-bar bracket or the 8188T2x2 ceiling tile panel with pre-cut hole. When using the panel accessory no 8188TBR is required. For indoor surface mount applications the 8188 speaker is available in an enclosure. Please refer to the 8189 SIP Surface Mount Ceiling Speaker.

Emergency Notification Alerting

For notification alerting there are two activation options available - dial an extension or connect a button to the speaker's relay input. Up to 10 Emergency Alert extensions are available to register on a single speaker allowing for different types of alerts to be activated (e.g., lockdown, evacuation, shelter, all clear, etc.). Custom WAV files can be uploaded to device memory (1GB). A Call To Cancel feature is available to allow the emergency alert to play continuously for the duration of the event, if desired. Alternatively, the alert can be configured to play for the duration of the WAV file.

Algo 1202 Call ButtonAny button providing a contact closure, including the Algo 1202 and 1203, can be wired to the speaker as an alternative option for emergency alerting. Three configuration options are available to configure on the relay input:

  • Multicast an alert
  • Call a target extension and play a discrete WAV file
  • Call a target extension and have a two-way call via the speaker's microphone

Any combination and number of Algo IP endpoints can be configured as a multicast for emergency alerting to cover any size room, building, campus or enterprise.
