Thanks to all who replied.
I think I'm going to report to the powers that be that this is a bad idea. What we're after (for work) is a sign which shows either something like "All Systems Go" or lists the server(s) down.
I guess we could "sacrifice" a display and leave it on 24/7/365 but a sign would seem to be a better (greener) solution. Can anyone suggest any other possibilities?

I don't have any experience with the device you linked to, but the following links suggest that it is possible with at least some similar devices.
