How will an ambulance find your house in an emergency?
We offer a simple solution that installs in seconds: the HomeFinder Flashing
Light Control by AmerTac. Simply screw this simple lighting control into your
existing porch light and insert a standard light bulb. Then, in an emergency,
simply flip your light switch off then on quickly and your standard bulb will
flash continuously for 20 minutes.
Similar products, such as the Home Beacon or 911 Beacon, have the flashing
mechanism imbedded within the light bulb. The Home Beacon or 911 Beacon cost
$19.95 each and last for only 2000 hours (that means the Home Beacon or 911
Beacon must be replaced every 200 days burning 10 hours per night). The Home
Beacon or 911 Beacon will cost you almost $40 per year while the HomeFinder
Flashing Light Control costs just $12.95 and uses standard (cheap) light bulbs.
Other products involve replacing your existing light switch with a new switching
mechanism to control your 911 emergency lighting. The HomeFinder Flashing Light
Control may be installed by anyone who can screw in a light bulb, and will not
require installation by an electrician. Your new 911 emergency lighting can
be installed within seconds of delivery, and you can breath easier right away
knowing that your 911 emergency light will shave valuable seconds off the time
it can take an ambulance to find your house.
Another feature of the HomeFinder Flashing Light Control is a built in dawn-to-dusk
sensor that allows your HomeFinder to act as a standard/automatic porch light.
The HomeFinder Flashing Light Control is an ideal gift for seniors, those with
existing medical conditions, children, and well, just about anyone. Simply,
911 emergency lighting saves lives. Get 911 emergency lighting for yourself
and your loved ones right away.
