I have no collection however I have never seen a bluepoint police alarm or medical alarm installed in a building. I think most people here have never seen such.

Another alarm I've seen online is the GMS but I have never saw it in person.
I'm exclusively on Skype now. Add me at amazee_dayzee. I don't do voice or video chats though.

Another few devices I've never spotted in public buildings:


Luminox STD 65-CES (IP 66 Waterproof version of the Luminox STD 65, for those who don't know what the Luminox STD 65 is, it's technically an exit sign with built-in emergency lights): I've never seen one.
Neutronic MCP (unknown model #): Quite common but in my area most MCPs I've found were eithier Nugelec, AVISS Security/DEF/Fare or Legrand.
Hello from France!
If you see someone with my real name (Alexis Trinquet) without the uppercase A and T commenting on any of your videos please just ignore them.
Devices in my collection: too much to count and still counting..!

The Gentex GOS (the multi-tone version of the SHG -- otherwise known as the predecessor of the Commander2/3/4), the Simplex 4903-9102 light plate, and, oddly enough, the Wheelock RSSP strobe plate.
Sorry for the bump, but I just acquired a System Sensor L-Series horn/strobe for Christmas (P2RL). That's right, I haven't seen an L-Series device of any type, despite being out for a while (not even one replacing an older notification appliance). I just know that there's a good chance the L-Series horn/strobe will be eliminated off the list for me sometime soon.

Thats funny, because I have already seen loads of L-Series appliances EVERYWHERE. Even the speaker/strobe varient, which i found inside Millers Pub in Chicago
