A: When the Americans with Disabilities Act was written, certain photometric requirements were established for visual fire alarm signals. Those requirements were very hard to meet with incandescent lights, but relatively easy with xenon strobes (LEDs have now also become an option for meeting those requirements).

Technically it is the Simplex 2901-9833 horn but I guess not a lot of people would know that.
