Answer: iZonus ® comes from the words “EyesOnUs”
We create better safety tools to help distracted drivers be more aware of Officers, First Responders, those working on our roadways, AND those of us who unfortunately experience breakdowns from time to time. We want everyone to have the best chance possible of returning home safely to their families.
Question: How much cost savings over Fusees (combustible flares)
Answer: We will use freeway fatality accidents as a case scenario
What is the problem with this calculation? The problem is, most agencies do not keep the lane closure lighted up when the flares burn out, and then they have cars encroach on their accident scene, putting the First Responders and the Public in danger. To properly keep the lane closure lit up with burning flares during the entirety of the accident would be astronomically more expensive than most agencies can afford.
Answer: Each of the Pro Series lights operates with 3 AA batteries.
Very simple to change and inexpensive to operate. You can use AA rechargeable batteries if you prefer.
WHY NOT rechargeable systems? We thought of that and evaluated it in great depth and what we discovered from those using rechargeable systems is that they were discouraged with them because the lights were notorious for not being charged when they needed them (for a number of reasons; forget to plug in, jiggle loose, bad connection, not enough recharge time between uses, etc.). The runtime is limited compared to alkaline or lithium batteries and the eventual replacement of the rechargeable batteries can be costly. We recently sold several of our lights to a Sheriff that has been using a rechargeable system (considerably more expensive than ours) and he said that when fully charged, some of them run for 3 minutes and some for maybe 5 minutes before they die.
Answer: The magnet strength is one of the unique features of the Pro Series light. The magnet strength is rated at 90 lbs and is very strong as demonstrated in some of the videos in our video section. We believe the magnet used in the production of the Pro Series light makes it the strongest magnetically attaching mobile safety device in its class.
IF you are using our traffic cones with the CTA installed, or your own cones with our CTA or your own "cone top" solution, these lights will not blow off of the cones. We made them this way for that reason.
Answer: Approximate runtime of the Pro Series light (3x AA BATTERIES) is between 70-100 hours +- depending on color combinations and flashing patterns.
Light brightness diminishes with runtime. Certain colors of lights require more power to generate the same amount of light output. Recommend considering battery change 36-48 hours for optimum brightness. Battery quality and temperature can make a difference in runtime.
A life lost or injured isn't worth a few 20 cent batteries. Safety has a price and it's worth every penny, just ask your own family.
Answer: Water Resistant, but not Waterproof.
The lights are designed to withstand water in a heavy rainstorm but are not designed to be submerged in water for any length of time. However, if you have a water-tight Ziploc style bag they would be fine underwater. The lights have actually been used in this manner, up to 33 feet for 20 minutes, and worked very well for two divers to locate each other and the scene.
Answer: Yes. The lights are made with Polycarbonate material.
One of our videos shows the lights being run over. However, the lights are not designed to be tank proof and we don’t recommend running over them. Being run over is not a normal operating condition as described in the warranty. This video was submitted to us, unsolicited, by some officers that were testing out the lights. https://vimeo.com/692067278
Answer: The lights are quite bright although not blindingly bright as other competitive products claim. The lights can be seen from over a mile away under normal night-time conditions and they can be seen from 10 miles away at night-time under night vision goggles from the air.
The lights are bright because of the high number of LED's. Certain competitor lights have 16 LED's that rotate in different patterns around the entire light, the Pro Series lights have 16 LED's in the front, to face oncoming traffic, plus 8 LED's in the rear.
For the safety of the First Responders when they are on an accident sce, and for the safety of the public when they are broken down, we developed this highly visible light to help protect them and to give advanced notice to oncoming traffic.
Answer: The white light is a unique feature of the Pro Series and has many purposes:
Answer: Yes. However, the use of different color lights is a different thing.
The law does not prohibit the purchase of police-style or police-colored lights (primarily blue) but using any type or color of light to impersonate law enforcement is illegal. We recommend that if you intend to use blue colored lights, especially if attached to your vehicle, outside your private residence or private property, that you confirm your states’ policy regarding the use of blue flashing lights or any color of flashing light. You might try calling your State Highway Patrol if you are concerned.
