Hi all.. I am new here.. Looking to learn...I think the more I think I know, the more I realize I know so little... I came upon a very interesting install today.. or whats left of it. Place is in an old building undergoing extensive renovations. There is an old door that resembles something out of a stable.. cobblestone drieway, etc.. has to be 75 years old. Some old time alarm guy looks like he protected this door by using what appears to be very small guage wire in a back and forth criss cross patern on the iside of the door. I imagine if someone kicked the door in, or maybe kicked at it from the outside, the line would stretch, or maybe break?? (not sure on this part) and cause an open or closed condition. Has anyone else seen anything like this? I love goingi into old gun shops or jewelry shops and seeing how the old timers did the foil on windows.. Even new systems.. I enjoy walking into a store and looking around.. wondering why they opted to go a wall mount motion when a 360 ceiling mount would have been better... then trying to figure out the logic behind the decision..
