Door bell with a LED (or others) instead of sound?

Now, this is might sound stupid, but i listen to a lot of music with the volume cranked up(!) with my headphones and door locked. So whenever anyone knocks on the door i can't hear it.

However if i had a light source of some source that would light up for a few seconds whenever a button is pressed from the outside.

My question is as follows:

#1; Does this have a particular name?

#2; If it exist pre-manufactured, where could i get it?

Tyvm! :)

    they are present but. you can call an electrician and you just have to do is to tell him to put a light bulb parallel to the Door bell.

    In this case whenever your bell rings you would be able to see a great lighting effect cuming and you would be over this problem by just using:

    1. An electrician( hardly cost u anything)

    2. A lighting bulb.

    They are called phone strobes. It shouldn't be too hard to make them work for a door bell.

    They're called "strobe" lights, and you'll need one if you keep on listening to music with your headphones.
