The sensors and cables still remain, but the original control unit has been removed. Te frame in which it sat is still present and affixed to the wall above the electrical distribution. All cable runs end up, somehow, at this location. The cable runs are all 8 core, though not all cores need be used on a given run.

The section names in this article match the legends written on the cables themselves.
