This model has been replaced with the newest model. Click here for the new SOS-IX siren-operated sensor.
The SOS-YDT version stands for YELP/DECIBEL/TIME. It's programmed to respond to emergency vehicle sirens' "YELP" and open the gate in 2.5 seconds. If the emergency responder is not using the "YELP", yet the decibel level remains high for an additional 2 seconds, the YDT will trigger the gate to open. This version will therefore respond to the "wail" or any consistent sound producing 4.5 seconds of high decibel. The SOS-YDT is proximity adjustable, and has switch able safety options built into the circuit board.
The SOS will open gates to emergency vehicles with the yelp signal. It has a convenient sensitivity feature that allows you to change the sensitivity based on the distance on the gate to the road. So that a emergency vehicle driving down the road doesn't accidentally open the gate. This emergency gate access sytem allows you to sleep safe wit
Fire/Police/EMS/911 responders, open gates with Siren's "Yelp" in 2.5 seconds (all sirens in 4.5), hands free…No codes to remember or keys to lose. A reminder decal on the gate tells responder to hold siren on for swift entry.

Siren Operated Sensor is used at any gate to allow for emergency response vehicles (Police, EMS, Fire) to enter without having to damage the gate. An emergency vehicle needs to approach the gate and use the “squalk” siren feature used on all emergency vehicle horns. This allows the gate to open, and the emergency vehicle can gain immediate entry.
