  • Controlling Emergency Lights from CarPC

    I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on this. How could I go about controlling emergency blue strobe light from my carpc? Just a matter of turning it on and off, want to have one less box in the car. Thanks in advance!

      If you want to control it from the CarPC, the Fusion Brain will work.

      But you do know that it is illegal to have blue flashing lights on your car in both the US and Canada because police use that colour.

        In New Jersey, EMS and Fire Fighters (volunteers) are allowed to have blue emergency flashing lights on personal vehicles as long as you have a permit. Thanks guys!

          The legality of flashing lights varies from state to state.
          In Texas, you cannot have a red flashing light. In other states it's blue flashing lights.
          Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
          How about the Wiki?



          Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

            Wasn't aware of that, but just trying to cover our butts. Dont want to tell someone to use the product for something illegal.

            I thought that blue was the default emergency light? Never seen red before, but I am red/green colour blind anyways!
