    hi
    I have installed in my house a 7 zone wired alarm, external bell box and 3 key pads
    Its all 15 years old now and I would like to replace it as I have had a couple of false alarms

    I'm quite handy with electrics and would self-install

    I would like to reuse the wiring and replace all the hardware and incorporate an auto-dailer

    Questions,
    Who makes the best kit nowadays [ we have scantronic at the moment]
    Which type of movement detector is best [seen dual microwave and pir?]
    what type of auto dailer
    Which supplier would you recommended

    thx in advance

    hi andy
    sort of frightened of all those battery's going flat, the wired one has been fine but is showing its age
    looking to come in to the 21st century

    Batteries last a long time and any that are low are indicated by the panel.
