I think the 9800 was kind of a dumb design using 2 7 segment displays like the 9100 from the late 80s.

 

Compared to the 9600 and 9500 that uses a lcd screen 

 

Still want a 9500 lol

The 9800 was cheaper, a lot of people think an alarm is an alarm ie all the same so buy the cheapest

Optima plus.   Those Had the keypad as a part of the sticker. The sticker used to crack after a while.  The Optima plus also had a "engineer" light i believe

I did have the heating linked to the alarm years ago but this overrides the frost protection so I dissed it and just use the nest jobby. 

 

We have that now using Nest, Fibaro, and IFFT, bit of a kludge but it works and is a one way path, there is no interaction with the alarm other than Norm style physical 'alarm is set' relay telling Fibaro home centre.

 

I'm not big on the blinds thing but for the main lounge (which also will suffer from too much sunlight in the summer anyway) I will have auto curtains on the french windows and auto roller blind the opposite end where the sun is worst.


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