Default Remote Printer Notification Devices

I am trying to come up with a solution for a remote printer notification. What I will have, ideally, is a remote printer in a warehouse for printing pick tickets. While the printer is printing the ticket, I need to flash a strobe or sound a buzzer to let the warehouse personnel know there is a ticket waiting. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Clearly this is not run of the mill stuff. You will need to have some very good software + hardware communicating for this to work.
Your best bet is to search google for a similar existing solution and try to mod it to fit your needs.
