Scheduled Work Shift Timer, Bell and Synchronized Clock In-A-Box-
Ring up to 255 events in a 7 day week. That's enough for 3 shifts, 24/7/365
Each basic kit includes:

  • One Made-In-USA Pyramid 7000 master clock timer, with variable bell lengths
  • One 24VDC to 110VAC relay, pre-wired and installed for you, inside the 7000
  • You can set it up with three buttons.
  • One  98db LOUD fire bell.
    ----  add up to 9 more on this circuit
  • 50' of twin stranded speaker cable to connect the bells (go out to 500' if you like!)
  • Mounting hardware for the 7000 master clock timer.
  • One 13" easy to read surface or flush-mount 110V synchronized wall clock with sweeping second hand
    ---- add up to 9 more on this circuit. Each synchronized wall clock needs a 110V plug near it.
  • One year product replacement warranty. 
    Call Pyramid, or call Employee Time Clocks.
  • Add more bells and more clocks - round or digital - as needed. 
These numbers are conservative:

This pays for itself IN JUST ONE MONTH:
Example:
  • Each employee costs you $20.00 per hour. Consider matching taxes, as well.
    Start times, breaks, lunches, the next break, and the final starting time are sloppy at best.
  • It's human nature to take a few extra minutes here, a few extra minutes "there," and so-on.
  • Add a bell or buzzer system and you get back lost work time from every employee, every day.
  • If you recover just two minutes on each side of the breaks and lunch, and they worked up until the end of the day, you would typically get back 8 minutes a day, per worker.
  • 15 employees x 8 minutes a day x 5 days a week. 
    600 minutes, or TEN HOURS A WEEK.
  • 10 X $20 per hour =  $200 in recovered work hours, per week. 

    That's a full time employee and a part-timer, EACH AND EVERY WEEK.
Add a digital clock so that they all know exactly what time it is, and it gets even better.
Simple 3 button setup. 

Just press three buttons to program it, and have your schedule written out in front of you.
Button one: Enter and Save  
Button two:   Up (numbers and settings)  
Button three:  Down (and settings)

Example:  Monday through Friday, 1/2 day on Saturday, closed on Sunday:

Yes.

 

This has been going on for years:  People keep asking "How loud are your bells?"

Unfortunately, it's like describing a dinner at a restaurant. It depends on the environment. 
Is it an empty room like a gymnasium?  Does it have lots of rooms, or lots of background noise like a woodworking shop?  Is this a warehouse with lots of rows of shelving and boxes of fabric?

Bells and buzzers all seem to max out at 102db.  102db is very loud.
110db is extremely loud, check out the YouTube video below. 

In our experience, installing 2 to 3 bells or buzzers is much more effective than just one.   Put one by the timer, then run wire out the another, 50 to 100' away.  It won't be louder, it will just be more likely to be heard above all the background noise.

So, yours truly did some research recently (2016), this is interesting,
Using an Android phone decibel app, this is what we found:

**A bedroom at night in the country, windows closed:  28 - 32 db
**A bedroom at night in the city with the windows closed:  42- 46 db
**Office environment, people chattering:  62db

**American Airlines 737 inside. just behind the wing during takeoff:  86db
**Same jet, landing with the reverse thrusters on:  88db  That ROAR you hear..
**Same jet, cruising for 3 hours, it's 82 to 86db.  That's (partially) why flying is so tiring.
Shop buzzer's:  102db (Edwards, the ones we sell) 
                           Other brands "hum" at 82 to 86.
Our bells test out at 98 to 103db depending on voltage


It seems that no one offers anything louder than 103db, unless it goes on a train, ocean liner, or fog horn.  In some cases loudspeakers are used on farms; we don't have them, but our equipment will ring them.  This is 110db, a train horn on an obnoxious person's pickup truck.  In a working environment, this would clearly cause accidents.

More bells or horns does not make it louder, it just makes it more pervasive - easier to hear through the machinery, across the rooms, over conversations and running equipment like compressors, lifts, packing tape, all that.
