The Indispensable Blue Light

Many people agree that the dog is a man’s best friend but for added security to his house the occupant also has another very reliable friend – the strobe light. Some people go even further by saying that the light is a very important part of an effective home security system. At NTC in Melbourne we tend to agree and often suggest their inclusion in any alarm system configuration to our clients. What is it? This light is a high intensity light that emits a blue light that can be visible over a long distance and is placed on the system’s siren outside cover.

An operational wonder when triggered

The strobe light is part and parcel of a complete alarm system that when triggered puts into motion a series of events that will call attention to what is happening. For instance, it will draw attention to a breaking in or the entering of your home by a burglar that has intentions of stealing your valuables. It will also inform you of any other strange activities that take place near or around your house. When triggered, the system instantaneously sets off well-coordinated action between its different features in a well synchronized security system for the protection of you home.

The different components silently go into action

There is nothing more attractive and also eerie to watch than the synchronized and immediate responses of each different component when the power is turned on. The minute the system is triggered on, all the sirens, the internal screamers and external siren go into action sounding the alert to both house occupants and nearby houses.  The blue strobe light likewise automatically goes into action flashing its warning for everyone to see telling them that a clandestine activity is in progress. An automatic dialler also alerts the Back to Base station a control panel at the station or your own mobile phone for security purposes.

The aftermath of the burglary event

The system does not continue to operate non-stop. After about 2 minutes the sirens become silent but the strobe light continues to flicker intermittently on and off until it is manually turned off. The function of the strobe light is unique in that while it is flickering, it means something has triggered the system off. If it is dormant, it alerts the house owner to the fact that no unusual event has taken place around the house or outside. It gives you forewarning if the house is safe to enter or otherwise before you actually enter it. This is the reason why the strobe light should be part of the alarm system.
