Optima Alarm Upgrade

Recommended Posts

I have an existing (old school) Optima alarm panel with 2 zones (wired PIR's + contact points).

 

I am looking to replace the panel with a simple alarm panel (no smart/wireless PIR inputs needed). I am looking for it to have the ability to arm/disarm using a remote control or a key fob.

(The alarm will be used by elderly people, so the key fob/remote should be much easier than entering the code each time).

 

Any thoughts on a suitable simple systems are welcome.

You could use a Pyronix enforcer, it has two wired zone inputs (if you don't need to wire the external bell box) - note if you use the two wired inputs and want an external bell this would have to be wireless

It has wireless fobs / and or prox tokens & is fairly simple to use

 

Or another suggestion would be a texecom 12W (or similar) , fairly similar to the enforcer (probably better IMHO) it has at least 4 wired zones, it is wireless capable for expansion, has wireless fobs / prox tokens

 

Hope the above helps
