The classic image of the oversized “alarm bell” ringing in a bank after a robbery appears time and time again in old movies. By today’s standards, the alarm systems of the 1930’s and 1940’s seem almost ridiculous. At the time, these alarm systems were cutting edge. As the years progressed, variations of alarm systems intended for home use came into being. Video cameras capable of recording images on time-lapse tape emerged.
