MDT/Avanti Keypad alternative?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a wired alarm system based around an Avanti LC panel with a range of sensors and currently 2 keypads. I would like to add a third keypad so I can set the alarm from the garage door but I understand my system is now obsolete. Is there a suitable replacement for the MDT alarm keypad? or is it a case of replacing the panel and the keypads but retaining the sensors I have?

Any help would be much appreciated

The best replacement would be something like a Scantronic 9651, Pyronix Euro Mini, or Texecom Premier type system.

 

The cheapest would be the first 2, but all of them will work with your original wiring, bell and keypads - you will need 3 new keypads though.

 

However, you might like to take the opportunity to add internet 'cloud' type connection to your system, which would be a big and useful upgrade.


So, I've decided to take my work back underground.... to stop it falling into the wrong hands

hi, thanks for the fast reply, if I wanted to add an internet connection to the system what would I need to do, I'm guessing that would be a different panel again?

Not quite, for Scantronic (AKA Eaton) would would need an I-On 40H (not just i-On 40) which is a very similar to the 9561 but much better, the Euro Mini I don't think supports it, the Texecom you need

to add a SmartCom unit (I believe other members - they are not on board now are they?).
