“Saturn”, Brighton: heptagonal planet

“Saturn Security Systems” burglar alarm, Brighton • The same heptagonal box as yesterday, but with different strobes – it’s the only one I’ve ever found like this, and I always like a sounder with a planet on it. Google threw up a few Saturn Securities, but none were this firm – I finally tracked them down on an old business directory, but the listed website has disappeared so presumably the company has too. Those screws are a bit rusty, so it certainly can’t have been opened for a while. • Spotted: Bristol Road, Brighton, East Sussex, BN2, England, 2010 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Brighton Kemptown

  1. It’s a CQR Protecta but with the strobe lenses split into two. Must have offered this as a variant rather than the full-width lens.
