    I always have fun trying to identify alarm keypads in the background on TV.

    The other day I was watching a political spot on TV and saw my alarm decal
    on the door of the business the candidate was entering on TV. Just a little
    thing, but I thought it was neat.

    *That* has gotta be the best... Even better... When you can "buy the
    movie" your system's in... :))

    Awhile back, the local TV station did a piece on thieves that were
    patrolling neighbourhoods at night looking for homes where the homeowner had
    left ground floor windows open for air. Towards the end of the news spot,
    they made the comment that alarms can't do what they are supposed to do
    unless the homeowner actually turns them on. Then the camera zoomed into the
    alarm decal on the window.....and ...surprise, surprise.....it was mine !

    I didn't actually see the piece but I was told about it....

    A few years back a son murdered his mother down in Awatukee...of course the
    news had to show my yardsign even though it was in the middle of the day
    when he did the dirty deed and the alarm wasn't on (the pd called me to ask
    for o/c reports..and other junk).

    Remember the OJ trial? He had ADT sign in his yard.

    I was subpoenaed to testify for the defense in a murder trial a few months
    ago. Guy was shot in the front doorway of his home, on the same street as
    one of my accounts. They wanted to know whether my system had been triggered
    during the month the shooting occured. I guess the defendants were claiming
    that the shooting was related to a recent burglary in the neighborhood, The
    infamous "some other dude did it" defense. What a shocker.
    It was interesting though. Two defendants, two juries, and four tables chock
    full o lawyers.

    He was convicted.

    There's a really terrible Shannon Tweed movie that was shot here ( and how
    bad can a movie be with Shannon Tweed?) that shows her and some guy walking
    around to the back of this house and you get to see my signs a couple times;
    if you look close you can see the bell box that also has my sign and then
    you see the decal as they go into the back door. So far so good. Once
    inside you see her close the door and there is some piece of crap dummy
    alarm keypad from Radio Shack. It seemed that the movie company didn't like
    the Radionics keypad because it had red lights that went off and on or
    something so they pulled that an put the dummy keypad in place of it. What
    a zonk!
