ALGO Introduction

IP Strobe Light for Telephone, Security, Safety & Emergency Alerting

The 8128 is a SIP compliant IP strobe light. This endpoint is PoE, using LED’s designed for alerting and notification of telephone, emergency, safety and security events (e.g., OSHA, ADA). The strobe features 16 configurable flash patterns/intensities and four colour options to suit any application, particularly in noisy or noise-sensitive environments.

The high-intensity LEDs of the 8128 provide extended life over Xenon type strobes and more luminance with less energy. The strobe supports multicasting and can be deployed in any number for mass notification applications (e.g. weather evacuation, workplace safety or security notification, etc.). The 8128 can be combined with a variety of Algo IP endpoint speakers and paging adapters to provide a comprehensive audible and visual alerting solution, whether for small or large enterprise/campus applications.

360 x 180 visibility and flash pattern options make these strobes suitable to mount on a wall or ceiling. When properly installed, the 8128 can also be used outdoors.


  • Network managed and supervised SIP and multicast endpoint
  • Match the aggressiveness of the flash pattern to the application requirements (i.e., low, medium and high-intensity options)
  • Multicast to scale from one to many synchronized strobes
  • Notification without audible noise
  • Notification in noisy environments or for the hearing impaired
  • Compatible with all varieties of Algo speakers and paging adapters for more comprehensive alerting solution requirements
  • Long-range visibility from any angle
  • Life expectancy 200 times longer than Xenon strobe, with zero light degradation for at least 34 years of continuous use
  • PoE (802.3af) eliminates the need for local power supply


  • SIP compatibility with all leading UC vendors including Avaya, Broadsoft, Cisco, Digium/Asterisk, Mitel, Metaswitch, NEC, and Polycom to name a few
  • Multicast receive or broadcast capability
  • Mix with any number and model of Algo speakers and/or paging adapters using multicast (e.g. 8128, 8180, 8186, 8188, 8301, 8373) for a comprehensive mass notification alerting system
  • Selectable, preloaded flash patterns and intensities
  • Available coloured lens in amber, blue, clear & red
  • Light splashes onto wall or ceiling for enhanced visibility
  • Mounts to double gang box or any flat surface (i.e. ceiling or wall mount)
  • Up to 198-candela luminous intensity
  • Configurable through a web interface
  • Auto-provisioning (i.e., TFTP, FTP, HTTP)
  • SNMP supervision
  • Programmable relay (dry contact) input and output


  • Visual ring notification in noisy environments or where employees are wearing hearing protection/hearing impaired (e.g., manufacturing or utility plant, machine shop, etc.)
  • Visual ring notification for a call centre, warehouse, restaurant or kitchen, etc.
  • Alerting in noise-sensitive environments (e.g., maternity ward, courtroom, studio, library, etc.)
  • Mass notification for security, safety and emergency alerting (e.g., school lockdown or evacuation, workplace safety or weather warning, etc.)
  • ADA and OSHA compliance
