What is the 911 Alert?
The 911 Alert lets police and ambulance services find you in
case of an emergency when seconds count. You can mount
on your window, door, and/or mailbox.
You can activate the 911 guiding strobe by:

The 911 Alert plugs into your telephone and senses when you
dial 911 or any emergency number from any extension.
Dialing 911 (or any other emergency number) triggers a radio
frequency (RF) signal that begins flashing the Strobe. You can
see the strobe from up to one mile away at night and up to 1/8
mile away during the day.
You can also use the 911 Alert as a convenience device
(delivery service, guests and so on) by pressing the
non-emergency button on the transmitter.
Each 911 model has its own user-specified signaling code.
This allows your unit to operate totally independently of any
other units in the neighborhood.
