Can anyone recommend a control to use for a 24 unit office/warehouse
units?  

They have to be able to be armed/disarmed independently of each other. In
each unit there is one man door and one overhead, plus the office will
have 4 points/zones.  I'm looking at 52 points max, or 28 if I put the
overheads/man doors on single zones.  Preferably something addressable
(and available via regular distribution channels).  Hopefully I can just
run a data cable through the building instead of many cables and zone
expanders.

I thought about using a Vista 128 with V-Plex, but that does not solve
the independent arm/disarm problem.  I could always manually shunt the
sensors with mechanical keypads at each unit, but that may be problematic
too for several reasons.  

I know they make something specifically for this scenario, I just have
never had to do one.  Thanks.

3 Honeywell 128BPT panels will give you 24 partitions. Stay away from  
the Vplex stuff. You should be able to do it all wireless with a few  
well placed repeaters. Ademco also makes fully wireless keypads that can  
also be powered by a small transformer.

I just talked to the salesman, he's going to get 25 V-10's and monitoring
for each!

That's great. So do you still plan to hardwire it all?

Yep.  Each unit will have a separate panel, in the unit.  Everything is
treated like a stand-alone, I found out they are not for lease - but for
sale.  I'm getting $60 a pop to install the control and 2 contacts.
Programming and the dialer wire is not my problem!

The alarmco owner is getting 25 monitored accounts.  He can afford to pay
me to do 6 a day.  $1400 a week, I'll take.

I'll probably work 12 hours/day and get it done in 3.

BTW...  I want to avoid wireless in a steel building.
