How do I get a script to turn on a strobe light via USB Answered


I am really at a loss how to do this so would appreciate any advice. I use Splunk and within it you can set for a script to run when an alert happens, so what I want to do is when an alert happens for a strobe light and a siren to sound.

I haven't got a clue what kit is needed or the spec to do this? I suspect it will be some kind of a USB relay and obviously a strobe light and siren. Not sure how it should be wired up, I guess mains power (240v) to the strobe/siren positive and the negative connections to the USB relay? Then the scripting is there any free/sample scripts anywhere that can be used?

Thanks for reading
