As above maybe some examples would be nice, I am sure people here have seen plenty of tat or have it lying about.

Eurosec for me today, (which reminded me of the car radio anecdote) but might be turfing it out soon.

 

Amazed that it's a 'modern' panel but has no way of sparing out the zones other than a staple!

 

Took out a DS last week, LCD in the hallway, LED rkp for the bedroom #nice

 

OP I might have a BNIB Scanny Eurobell (and it actually is a bell) with Newey & Eyre 'Protector' branding, I'll be on a here a bit more

hopefully so will see if you've got any scanny swops for me...

So, I've decided to take my work back underground.... to stop it falling into the wrong hands

I've got a BNIB Modern Dummy at home. Managed to get the original (white spray painted!) strobe module for it a while back.

 

Then I chanced across some brand new Newey+Eyre ('Protector') branded Eurobells being sold for peanuts and bought the lot, they are the original mechanical bell type,

and I guess the exact same original back plate to the Modern alarms version.

 

Funny how long mechanical bells carried on for really, I remember the supermarket I worked in briefly whislt at collage was a new build in 1990

and still had a Securicor bell from scratch. I found this out when I deliberately set the alarm off using the dodgy fire door. What had

happened was this, I'd done some staff discount shopping but there was a wierd rule that you had to leave it at the tills in charge of

big bertha the supervisor even when you went out back to get changed.

 

Then I got chatting to someone as back then even large supermarkets (where I lived anyway!) really did shut at 1830 and they wanted

everyone out to shut the doors and put the alarm on. The keypad was actually in the office, miles from the door so they started the setting

before they even swept us lot up. As I got outside I realised I'd left all the stuff for the BBQ on the till! 'Just going back to grab my bag'

I said, 'No you're not' said the manager. So I quietly went round the corner and the second it had set, gently pushed the fire exit and set it off.

Nice mechanical bell sound and the whole square Securicor box flashing away :)

 

I came back round and found the door flapping open and the manager disappearing into the back to presumably ring someone.

 

Long before we got CCTV, (this place must have been a goldmine for tealeaves) I quietly walked up to the till, got my stuff, and walked off again.

 

It was a great night :)
