Will it have flashing lights? Elderly cannot hear well. Mo beddah get an expensive one hooked up to the home's electric supply so never need to change batteries. Elder too weak to change batteries or lift hands above their heads. Powerful strobe lights need lots of electricity, and I'd like to see a system where all the lights flash even if there's a fire in only one room.

This is HFD's way of justifying their budget. Not many fires anymore.
