Click here to see the answer.

This photo is a result of an improperly installed commercial burglar alarm system. There are many faults with the installation, obvious and not so obvious in the photo. You will notice that the enclosure is a residential enclosure, and not the stronger, thicker and more secured commercial enclosure. The installer also failed to protect the control panel with either tamper switches, motion detection or other devices. It was easy to simply pull this off the wall and defeat the system. Refer back to question 14.
