“ASG Vision”, Bristol: flamboyant tail

“ASG Vision” (over “OS Resolution”) burglar alarm, Bristol • Aha – I love a sticker, and especially a violent yellow one. Bristol seems to have a particularly thriving burglar alarm ecosystem, and here, ASG Vision have effected a brutal takeover of a hapless OS Resolution box (both  firms I have come across this one time only). It’s included due to the “vision” reference; what the acronym ASG refers to remains opaque, but I reckon its flamboyant tail is a very abstract eye. • Spotted: Broad Street, Bristol, Avon, BS1, England, 2011 • Politics: In the Liberal Democrat constituency of Bristol West

  1. OCS Resolution – part of the OCS FM company empire. It’s been re-branded long since as part of OCS Security. Resolution was the name of the company initially purchased to “cement” the move into electronic security by OCS.

    I won’t repeat what those of us who have worked there claimed the OCS stood for :)

    • I have never found an OCS box of any type, except this one that was stickered over. Surprising as you make it sound like they were quite a big firm.
