Voice Paging System

FAQ

Wireless paging system will always be more cost effective when compared with a hard wired system given the costly wiring that could be a major part of the overall system installation cost.  A basic voice paging system that include a VS4500 desktop base station, handset, built-in transmitter and a single VNS2610 wireless PA speaker will cost about $1300. Expanded wireless paging system that include a VS4820 paging base station, handset and a single VNS2610 wireless PA speaker will start at $1600. The actual cost of each wireless paging system configuration is mostly based on the amount of speakers needed to provide full area coverage.

A Visiplex wireless paging system can cover a small school building up to a multi-building large campus with one transmitter! The Visiplex systems uses a FCC approved paging band to send the voice and data information to all of its wirelessly controlled devices and use the needed transmission power, to provide full coverage to any facility size. Visiplex systems are installed in some of the largest commercial sites, universities, medical centers, schools and government facilities in the country utilizing one transmitter to provide full radio transmission coverage.

A wireless paging system coverage is impacted by construction materials, certain shielded areas, antenna positioning, antenna height and overall transmitter power. For example, an small commercial building of up to 10,000 SF, could be covered with a low-power transmitter. A large or multi level building such as high school will need a medium power transmitter. A large area or multi-building site will require a high power transmitter. To get a better idea about your system power needs, please call our sales representatives.

Most of Visiplex wireless systems can be installed without the need of professional installers. Since the entire system is wireless, all of the remote components such as speakers, message boards, intercom stations and visual alert devices, can be installed without any professional assistance – connecting to AC power or POE power source is all that needed. A desktop base station system that use an indoor antenna can be installed with a simple magnetic antenna mounting procedure. If your system is designed to cover a large area, it is recommended to use a professional installer to install the transmitter antenna on the roof, and choose the best location for the transmitter. If you need or choose to install the system by a professional, Visiplex can offer professional installation services by our staff or recommend one of our resellers in your area.

The primary cost difference between a wireless system and a hard wired system relates to the costly wiring of the facility and future related wiring problems. For example, a 100,000 sq. ft. facility with 50 PA speakers, will cost approximate. $15,000 for system parts, and approximate $10,000 to wire the building. This represents a savings of 40% in the total project cost. Another cost saving factor with a wireless system is that there is no need for expensive service calls for wiring problems or product relocation, since it can be done easily by the end-user.

Visiplex offers a built-in power backup option to most of its wireless products to ensure full functionality during power outage situations. It is recommended that all other system components such as the base station and external transmitters will be equipped with a power backup UPS.

One of the most significant advantages of a wireless PA system is the ability to add more wireless devices and expand the system as needed. For example, a basic paging system can later be expanded to provide additional coverage by adding wireless PA speakers, LED message boards can be added for text messaging, wireless beacon lights can be added for public visual alerts, and more.
