Nowadays of course, we have moved on Non-flickering tubelights and it is highly unlikely that we might be able to detect the peculiar peaks that you see on this. But to be sure we are currently working on this and we will keep you guys posted on the results.

Also if we could incorporate this into a IoT network, things will go crazy!!!
