“Securite”, Westminster: secure right

“Securite” burglar alarm, City of Westminster • At first I thought this was some fancy French firm called Securité. However their website reveals it’s a 20-year-old UK firm, so the name is probably a play on the less exotic-sounding Secure-right, with the tick accidentally looking like an acute accent, but actually relating to the concept of “right”. Whatever, it’s the last burglar alarm tick for now, bringing the grand total of this not-very-popular category up to five ticks – pathe-tick! (Groan.) • Spotted: Rathbone Street, City of Westminster, London, W1, England, 2012 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Cities of London and Westminster
