Choose your own painting or photo canvas of your loved one. You will also need flat hinges you can get in a hardware store for cheap and follow these steps:

Hiding your alarm panel may offer additional security by keeping the intruders unable to find the alarm until the authorities are notified. This trick could work with many eyesores on your wall – anything that can be concealed but will still function properly such as phone plugs, fuse box, or even a safe.  Although, when it’s time for me to sell your house – we’ll come up with a plan so people can FIND the alarm!
