I worked for Aritech in the early 1980's. They made a six zone panel, for restricted distribution. But discovered that the CPU chip (they had custom masked 250,000 of them) had a program failure that made it go into an endless loop if more than one zone was tripped. Panels were sent back to factory and new chips put in for FOCUS 6 and ADT $100 home alarm panels. Small world.
