recommendation to replace existing sysetm.

Threaded View
I have a Europlex GS system and the installer has changed personel
enough times since it was installed 7 years ago that they have no one
to support it.  It's been having some problems (like the yellow alert
light is constantly flashing even though there are no alerts), so I'm
thinking about replacing it and doing some of the work myself (moving
the wires, naming the zones, etc).

It's a rather large system as all the windows and doors are on the
system as well as 7 smoke detectors, 5 carbon monoxide detectors, 4
heat detectors, 1 sprinkler flow detector, 4 compustable gas detectors,
4 keypads, 9 motion detectors, and 3 sirens.  Total zones is 94.  And
everything is direct wired, nothing is wireless.

I'm looking for something that is easy to add zones to - I'd like to
add alerts for water sensors a driveway sensor and a few other things.
I want to interface it to a PC running windows xp such that all
activity is logged on the computer AND the computer can trigger alerts
on the security system.  And it needs to have it a "chime" mode, such
that every time a window or door is opened, the panel "beeps".

I've looked at the FBII XL-5 128 zone unit, but I'm not sure if that
has all the features I'm looking for and what it's longterm prospect is
now that honeywell has taken over.

Any help will be appreciated.

Fred.

Yeah, the first batch didn't perform as expected, they (ELK) have probably
worked the bugs out by now...

Mine's been up and running without a hitch for about 4 months now.  I
like the look of the new keypads though...

Actually it's been running for about a month now.  I haven't gotten around
to installing a third keypad, but that's on the agenda this weekend.  You'll
notice I "winked"...

It's been "up and running" for about a month.  We had some friends living in
the suite downstairs (while their own home was being completed) and I've
just installed another keypad at the side entrance to the house.  My older
son and his girlfriend will be living there.  What's up with you and Goofy
Muderator??  Group's too peacful for you I guess...
