Flashing light set or not, beep occurring intermittently (6)


I believe the answer is:


'flashing light' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'set or not beep occurring intermittently' is the wordplay.
'occurring intermittently' indicates alternate letters.
The alternating letters of 'setornotbeep' are 'STROBE'.

(Other definitions for strobe that I've seen before include "Flashing disco light" , "High-intensity flashing beam of light" , "Flash on and off" , "Sister to Hansel" , "Flashing lamp" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
