These seem like an easy solution to my racoon problem if they do.
I am not sure, but it is something I have wondered as well
What is it?
A coon doesnt care about red blinking lights. It doesnt care about a motion light. A dog, an electric fence or a coop like fort knox is the only real deterents.
It is called a NITE GUARD
I've had four Nite Guards up on all four sides of my run since last summer. I put them up after the coop was built and before I even got my chickens. I haven't seen a coon or any other type of predator in my yard since I put them up. I'm not saying it's because of them, I don't know for sure, I'm just saying. . . .
We have a scare crow. It bothers the coons, but I wouldnt rely on it as a defense.
Okay, racoon in our chimney! Any experience with this? He is in the unused one that drops to our basement (no fireplace at the bottom). He has found a hole into the basement ceiling.

No flashing light is going to run a coon off
As to the coon in the chimney, GREAT! It limits his exit route to a one way and gives you options.
Shove the muzzel of the pistol into the bottom of the chimney and do some cleaning.
When he's in the chimney, set up a snare or conibear trap over the opening. He may hesitant but has to come out to hunt and has to pass thru the trap / snare
Or if you know, one night, that he's out hunting, put a cement block on the top and lock him out
