Different type of optics all together. You would need dust or moisture in the air to make it more visible. Smoke, if you were working an actual fire scene. Not to mention the lookieloos would follow the light. :no:I had a 1500 lumen flashlight I used on tracks so perimeter units knew where we were going when they needed too
uhhh that was my suggestion.....What about a clear domed beacon with color rotating, but the ability to be turned white and controlled like a go light. Either by dial or by step buttons.
Lasers pointing up into the sky? If yes, that is illegal in the US...if it hit aircraft it is a federal felony...for example a medical helicopter arriving on scene.Well, not to toot my own horn but, I did suggest laser pointers... Thats pretty badass and innovative B)
Laser pointers pointed outwards just like the beam of light would be from a rotator. What would the point be of them aimed up at nothing?Lasers pointing up into the sky?

Thanks for the input all! We had about 6 good points so we put those names in a jar and pulled out Storm4200.-Battery operated
-Rechargeable via USB to cigg plug
-Dual color option
-2 modes or patterns
-120lb pull magnet
-On-off-on and momentary push buttons mounted on the light itself
-Advanced programming options or initial configuration done from phone App.
-joggable or directable scene function
-sub $250 price point
I think it has to do with the cost since all the big name brands in the states use different diodes for each color for their "duo" & "trio" technologies (more diodes hence more $), since the true duo color diodes used by foreign products (axixtech, SNM, etc), while plenty bright and reliable for many ppl, don't meet their standards & outputWith led rgb technology. Why not make a light that has all colours built in and would be field selectable by the end user
A rotabeam style LED colored beacon that looks just like a rotator. For this example let's use Amber as a primary color... Okay, So you have a nice bright rotating led beacon. The thing that makes this beacon special is it has a wireless remote control with left and a right arrow buttons and a spot button. When you press the spot button and enter spot mode, the amber immediately stops flashing and turns into a white LED spot light which the beam can be turned left or right with the wireless remote. Think of it as a visi-beam Spotlight beacon and traditional warning beacon all rolled into one. Perfect for those who need warning but once in a while need a spotlight function like a utility vehicle, snowplow, security car, even a POV firefighter who needs the white spot function while responding to light up a sign or mailbox. I personally love beacons and now that LEDs are so capable, this would be the perfect time to blow all the other manufacturers out of the water with this dual use beacon.All great points but the other big guys have already done similar things. Anything more "revolutionary"?
