    Default Sound meter?

    Any suggestions on an affordable and reliable sound meter or device used to measure the db. of alarm bells on an alarm system?
    Thanks

    Also if you are in a bigger city building or police department may have one to borrow

    Thanks but This will be for enforcement and don't want to rely on an app. I have the budget to purchase one, but these meters are outside my area of expertise.

    You might see if another city county dept in your area has one and see what brand they use

    Also if you are doing fire alarm acceptance test, you can require the fire alarm company yo provide one at time of test

    Most have one
