Chubb, Newquay, 2012

“Chubb a UTC Fire & Security Company” burglar alarm, Newquay • And finally, an Omega. Which is actually the top of an obscured West Country Alarms (I think that’s what they’re called) logo, and probably isn’t meant to be a Greek letter at all. Whatever, it’s the end of the Greek alphabet, and the end of this theme. Tomorrow, I revisit sound. • Spotted: East Street, Newquay, Cornwall, TR7, England, 2012 • Politics: In the Liberal Democrat constituency of St. Austell and Newquay

  1. I just got one of these cqr bell box. Itso a anti-foam bell box. There a pheonex model so 8012 horn siren that faces downwards on the three anti foam skins. There a lynteck clear strobe above the siren just below the final mounting hole. On the left hand side besides the siren is a cqr universal sab with a red led soldered on. On the right hand side there a tamper switch and the way it worked it is there is what looks to be a battery bay but is actually where the siren would be facing for nose and when you brought the bell box it came with a second anti foam skin that would clip on to the siren bay so it became even hard for the foam to get in because the siren was so low down in the bell box, on that second skin there was a peice of plastic that stuck out so when the screw pushes on the second skin, the second anti foam skin pushes in the tamper switch.
