Man in uniform with white cap, sitting, reading a print-out sheet and holding a mike. Showing is his back and his face is not visible but he is wearing dark rim glasses. On the lower left, a model of a two-story house and on the roof is a number key board. Verso: a typed half page paper with the caption: "Two Nova 1210 mincomputers, made by Data General Corportation, monitor doors and windows and fire and smoke detectors in Sugar Creek, a $200 million planned community near Houston. The system is activated by punching a code in a keyboard pad, like the one mounted in the roof of the model house, above. A message typed out in the computer control center tells a security officer the location of the disturbance. In the event of an intrusion or fire, the computer automatically turns on all the lights in the house and sounds audible alarms."
