  1. Mostly your all wrong my dad Andrew Cavalot owned “Active Alarms” in the early 80’s. It was based in Birmingham thou, he later went on to form “Law security systems” which is still going strong today and then later owned “Securatec” which was bought out by an american company in the late 90’s. Sadly my father passed away in 2001. I still see “Active alarms” on old buildings from time to time.

  2. Active Alarms also had a branch in Chapel Ash, Wolverhampton until around 1984ish, when they got bought out by Britannia.

  3. I see there’s a active alarms ltd in Birmingham not sure if it’s the same company. There web site is down so couldn’t get any info of that.
