Welcome to the Ultimate Alarm Project

Posted: 16th November 2010

The Ultimate Alarm Project is a community project for bedroom (and pro) geeks to design the ULTIMATE / best burglar alarm system for home or business.  It doesn't matter where you are, send in your ideas of how to mod / pimp up the AMCO monitored burglar alarm system and we'll spend up to £1000 on the best (and craziest) ideas to turn them into reality. It's geeks vs burglars - and there's only gonna be one winner ; - ) N.B. for information on the background to the project, and for photos and links to video downloads visit our project  background page here.

Vuvutech 5000

The VuVutech 5000 is our first Ultimate Burglar Alarm idea to be turned into reality.  The thinking behind this one was "how would we make the most annoying burglar alarm in the world???"  Make an alarm out of VuVuzellas of course!  See photos of the VuVutech 5000 in action on Flickr here!

Wall of Sound

The Wall of Sound was sent in by AlarmBoy and is the world's first "meme alarm" pumping out over 130db of sonic burglar-beating awesomeness from internet superstars like Antoine Dodson, Best Cry Ever, Jeremy Kyle and Double Rainbow man.  Enjoy!

Christmas alarm!

Following on from our Wall of Sound alarm idea, the team thought it would be fun to create a Christmas version - combining the most annoying Christmas songs together to create the world's most annoying (and loud) Christmas burglar alarm!
