13 Seriously Spooky Fire Alarm and Security Installations That Will Give You Nightmares

A good craftsman takes great pride in his/her work. Unfortunately, we live in a world where price matters, which leads to a “race to the bottom.” Unsurprisingly, this can lead to rushed jobs and less than qualified workers being hired.

The solutions installed by professionals in the security/life-safety industry can come into play in actual life-or-death scenarios, which means it is integral they are properly installed.

As you will see in this slideshow, that is not always the case. In fact, you can find plenty of examples across the Internet (including these additional fail slideshows that can be found here and here).

To source these images, we’ve dug through posts from the Alarm Tech Memes, Burglar Alarms Online and Crappy Fire Alarm Facebook groups to find the best of the worst installations.
