Now, don't get us wrong, we love a good sign here at Armsign - after all, they keep us in business! However, in recent times there has definitely been a feeling that some places are installing them just for the sake of it, or putting too many too close together.
In a world where technology and information is now available instantly, there is a desire for the visitor to be quickly entertained. Indoor settings solve this problem with digital screens, projections and even augmented reality, but this isn't possible in the open air of National Parks, walking trails and coastal attractions etc.
This is where Armsign comes in, with our exclusive range of audio units. Designed to be easy to set up, even easier to use and 100% power-free, they are the perfect solution for the varied Australian landscape.
Available with solar-power or wind-up kinetic technology, our units allow interpretive stories to be told like never before. Standing in the environment, hearing the natural sounds all around and then taking in stories from the past, it's as close to time travel as you are likely to get.
Here we look at the key features and benefits of our best selling product:
These audio units are power-free, which means they don't rely on electricity or batteries. The solar-powered unit utilises renewable energy from the sun, while the winding mechanism on the U-Turn unit allows users to generate power manually. This eco-friendly approach aligns well with sustainability initiatives and minimises the environmental impact.
The power-free audio units are highly versatile and adaptable. They can be installed in multiple outdoor environments, including parks, wetlands, botanic gardens, and town centres. Their flexibility makes them suitable for a wide range of applications. They are most often used to play animal sounds, tell historic stories or act as a 24/7 Visitor Information Centre.
These units are designed for ease of use. Users can simply wind up the dial on the front panel of the power-free unit or rely on the solar-powered unit to operate without any user intervention. This simplicity encourages engagement and interaction with the audio content, is suitable for all ages and promotes inclusivity within the community.
One of the standout features of these audio units is the ability to update content easily. End users can update the information or audio content as needed, making these units a future-proof solution that can evolve with changing circumstances, events, or seasons.
Educational & Interactive
Armsign's audio units can serve as powerful educational tools. They can share information about local events, provide details about the environment, and even play animal sounds. This educational aspect enhances visitors' experiences and contributes to a deeper understanding of the surroundings, without the need for tour guides or operators to be available at all times. The interactive nature of these audio units, especially the U-Turn, encourages user engagement. Visitors can actively participate in accessing information or entertainment, enhancing their overall experience.
With no need for traditional power sources or complex maintenance routines, these units are cost-effective and require minimal upkeep. This makes them an attractive choice for organizations and entities with limited resources. Each unit can be unpacked, loaded, installed and be fully operational within an hour!
