Was informed by Alarmax today that all of the FBI panels have been discontinued.

as usual another lie from a company which said it would keep FBI brand around forever. ha ha.  

The XL2T was a nice little simple to operate panel for seniors and now it and XL31and XL4 etc are history

I used a number of the XL-2 thru XL-2G panels and found them to be very long  
term stable.  I also have a few XL-4s in service still.  Can't really recall  
an major issue with any of them.

I have had a couple issues with XL-31s however.  Several of them worked fine  
with 4x2, but would refuse to recognize the kissoff when using CID causing  
run-a-way reporting.  I also had a number of them start to lose programming  
and have to be re-uploaded periodically.  I do still have a number of them  
in service.

Its been a looooong time though since they were eaten by Ademco.  They  
continued to support the line much longer than I thought they would.

What else is new.  

The XL series have stood the test of time over the decades. Dozens of them still out there. Simple to use, simple to install.

I'll have to order in their siren driver. Been using that for decades when a voice driver isn't needed.

what about the FBI CP-220 Receiver.  I am concerned about the Contact ID  
line cards.

I have roughly 50-75 line cards for the CP-220 in stock. They are all  
used, but all functional.
