Abstract (en)

A sound-sensitive two-way emergency alert system in a building includes at least one electronic alarm module disposed at a predetermined location in the building. When the system detects an emergency event, the alarm module outputs an acoustic and/or visual alert and listens for sounds indicating the presence of people or animals in the building. If voices are detected, their location is transmitted to a remotely located control module to inform emergency personnel about the location of individuals needing assistance. The alarm module operates dynamically based on the recognised acoustic responses and requests of persons in the vicinity. The system can be applies for example to locate and aid victims trapped in a building during an emergency.
