  1. We, Westec Security used to buy equipment from them in the late 90s. We brought their very simple card access system but more important I’m sure we used to buy the Italian Elkron sounder from them, it was very loud so only used on a few installations (I have picture of one Vici if you are interested).
    Although they are in Oxfordshire now they were down in Sussex and the Director was called Tom Baker perhaps that’s where the name Tcom comes from.
