Curiousity about Fire Alarms

Not open for further replies.

Hey, the other day while lounging in my dorm and the fire alarm went off and that annoying flashing light starting going off. It then hit me, I wonder if there is a way to hook up some sort of device that strobe lights use to go with the music. I don't know a whole lot about that kind of stuff and was also wondering if the alarm would even go off if just the light was tampered with...

If anyone can answer these questions that would be awesome and would surely change dorm parties everywhere. Hahaha.

I would expect there's a significant legal penality for messing with a fire alarm. So unless you don't mind a felony on your record I would suggest you leave it alone.
