Abstract

The invention relates generally to security systems and in particular to a low cost security system connected to an outdoor luminaire. The device consists of two basic parts, an adapter which mounts to the ANSI receptacle on a standard outdoor luminaire and a button that mounts to the base of the pole, connected to the adapter. The adapter passes through the alarm signals and these will not impact the normal function of the luminaire. When actuated by a press of the button the system may provide flashing multi-colored lights, or audio noise such as a siren, or both. The system would be low cost as it can be applied to existing luminaires (LED). It would also be out of reach of assailants and the system could not easily be disabled.

FIG. 1 shows an alarm/security beacon installation utilizing an outdoor luminaire.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

The invention discloses a low cost alarm beacon system and device that is affixed to utility light poles as described pictorially in FIG. 1. The device consists of two basic parts. The first part is an adapter which mounts to the ANSI receptacle on a standard outdoor luminaire and the second is a button that mounts to the base of the pole, wired to the adapter. The adapter will pass through signals and will not impact the normal function of the luminaire.

When the system is installed it may be actuated by pressing the button on the pole and provide either flashing multi-colored lights, or audio noise such as a siren or both. The alarm may be actuated by a wired connection, or the connection between the button and the alarm could be wireless. In another option, the button may also trigger communications to cell phones that may be configured, or a security control location such as 911 or may trigger...
