“AM Security Group”, Brighton: swelling sides

“AM Security Group” burglar alarm, Brighton • Not a super-rare case style, but unusual and striking nevertheless with its swelling sides. You see these mounted horizontally too, and with the right design and colourway such boxes can look stylish – though this isn’t one of them. The busy logo manages to cram in references to time, a bit of a key at the end of the ‘M’, and radiating from the ‘A’ is a spiky circle that suggests a bandsaw or a gun sight, but is probably meant to be soundwaves. • Spotted: Old Steine, Brighton, East Sussex, BN1, England, 2004 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Brighton Kemptown

    • Yeah I remember the Prima being in Wickes as part of a kit – funny you mention it as I’m certain it was sold as an external but not a sab – just a dummy with backplate and a tiny siren bolted to the back. I got asked to fit one as a weekend cash job – having looked at it I persuaded him to go with my contractors choice of all-GardTec (based on an 816 LCD) on the books and he gave me the non-returnable Wickes kit as a bizarre, but well meant, tip!

  1. Elmdene Starlight (full fat version) or Sounda (‘democratic’ model) – I wonder if these were meant to replace the Prima, but it lives on nearly 20 years later…
