when a nearby smoke detector alarm goes off, the LinearStrobe™ goes into action to highlight the outer edges of your doorway. Every few seconds, the LinearStrobe™ takes a sample of the sounds in its area and processes those sounds through its mini-computer. If these sampled sounds include the specific smoke alarm sounds (frequencies) that it is trained to recognize (like that which a typical common smoke alarm broadcasts), the LinearStrobe™ hears it and automatically goes to work to highlight the universally recognized shape of a doorway. It works 24-7-365; constantly searching the airwaves near it for alarms sounds.
The LinearStrobe™ is designed to operate as a voluntary stand-alone home/building accessory consumer product to provide buildings (residential and commercial, alike) with an ever-present inconspicuous bright lighting system to identify and highlight the universally recognized shape of a safe exit door and to communicate where that door is located when other alarms in such building are activated.
