Do You Carry/Use A Decibel Meter?

In upcoming intrusion and other testing, we plan to measure sound pressure levels (SPL) of various devices, such as alarm sirens/annunciators, intercoms, and more.

Do you or your techs carry one? What model(s) do you use? What do you use them for?

There are solidly recommended models on Amazon for less than $20.
