“Response Alarms”, Camden: ladies’ shaver


“Response Alarms” burglar alarm, Camden • This style of Response is much more common than yesterday’s tricorder, and often has other firms’ branding (the Response-branded version being a DIY alarm, I think). In its wavy curvaceousness, the case reminds me of nothing so much as a ladies’ shaver. • Spotted: Tottenham Mews, Camden, London, W1, England, 2005 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Holborn and St Pancras

  1. there are loads of these shape boxes around, most are response branded, but lots of others are blank or have other D.I.Y alarm names on the front.
    Here is a video of one of these being set up, if you’re interested.
