Power Supply

Battery backup 
There is a rechargeable battery inside the siren that serves as a backup in case of a power failure. During normal operation, AC power is used to power the siren and at the same time recharge its battery.
 
After AC power failure, the battery will provide power to the siren for 12 hours, then transmit a low battery signal to the gateway and send notifications. After AC is restored and battery is fully recharged, the siren will transmit a low battery restored notification to the gateway.
