    Default Minitor 5 Pager Amplifier

    Can anyone tell me what amplifiers do? Do they simply make the tone louder, or do they get better range?

    Thanks

    Are you talking about the Pager charger with remote antenna capabilities? Would just extend the RX range if so. Does nothing for tone loudness.

    The amplifier chargers have a built in audio amplifier with a speaker. It makes the audio MUCH MUCH louder. Like blow your out of bed loud if you aren't careful. They also have a jack for an option external antenna which can help in fringe areas. And they also have a port on the back for external devices to be controlled by the alert.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Suppose the output port could be used to operate a relay for a warning siren? New $2000 siren controller with page receive is not in the cards so looking for a less expensive option.

    Someone on ebay is selling a setup where they sell a box that plugs into the back of the Amp/Charger and it rings a bell for an adjustable amount of time. I have not seen it in use, but if it can ring the bell you would think it could maybe control a relay for your siren.
