Impressive cars, gadgets and guns owned by the world's most famous fictional secret agent are being protected by equally sophisticated alarm systems and cameras from Chubb Security. Chubb is part of UTC Fire & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

The props are housed in the world's first museum dedicated to the films of James Bond, opened on the 100th anniversary of Bond producer Albert Broccoli's birth. Museum founder and curator Peter Nelson has spent many hundreds of thousands of pounds on his collection, and needed a company he could trust to keep them secure:

"James Bond is a household name, and in selecting a security provider I looked to an equally big name. The fact that Chubb clearly understands the importance that such exhibits have in the British Public's affection, was another deciding factor."

Chubb installed an integrated CCTV and intruder alarm system, with both cameras and the alarm monitored off-site. Should an incident occur, the alarm receiving centre is notified and determines the appropriate response, if necessary alerting the police. Images are also digitally recorded and stored to provide a visual record of any attempted break in, theft or act of vandalism.

The James Bond museum, in Keswick, Cumbria, includes various Aston Martins and Lotus cars driven by the different actors who played 007 including Sean Connery, Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan. Among other highlights are the original gun from The Man with the Golden Gun, and a Russian T55 battle tank from GoldenEye.

The collection was sourced through auctions and donations from Bond filmmakers EON, actors and crew from the movies. Peter has also travelled the world to acquire the cars. "The museum features the Lotus Esprit S1 submarine from The Spy Who Loved Me, which was found in a Bahamian scrap yard," Peter says, "and the original Ford Mustang, that did an incredible two wheel stunt in Diamonds are Forever, was found in New York.

"Bond is synonymous with quality," Peter concludes, "and Chubb offers the museum the standard of security it deserves, to help bring the glamour and luxury of 007 to Bond fans across the world.
