It is necessary to warn the hearing impaired in case of an emergency, however, each strobe light requires immense power and current. By maximizing the efficiency of the power input, it will be possible to connect more strobe lights to the fire protection system. To do this there is a need to find a working ray tracing program for testing, specify requirements for the new design, create a method of statistical analysis, and finally make a 3D model. According to the simulation results, about 40% of the power supplied to the fire alarm can be saved along with a 5% efficiency increase.
