Replace Paragon plus with new version

Recommended Posts

I am looking to replace a Paragon plus alarm with a newer model, currently looking at the Pyronix Euro 46, or Texecom Veritas excel

 

In regards to the Pyronix, is this simple enough to do for DIY installer as there are limited instructions online, can you still use the home control app? or do you need to be a registered installer? On one of the sites there is a product recall, (*currently stock delays due to a software issue recall), therefore should you steer clear from these

Which sites for which panel?


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

Well, I would probably rather steer clear of a manufacturer who doesn't recall stuff and pretends it's all fine, than one who does.

A vertias with an LCD is very different from Euro 46

Do you use the remote keypad the most or the panel keypad the most

If you go Texecom then use a Premier 24 Poly not an Excel

We will be using the keypad the most as the panel is hidden

The excel is probably a better panel for a DIYer as it doesn't use EOL. 

 

A premiere is probably too much for a DIYer  the premier even confuses me and i worked on tons of panels even ones from the 1980s

Does any one know if there should be any issues with using the paragon wiring and external siren with the Pyronix Euro 46 (Note i do not want to use EOL for ease of fitting) . And when you purchase the Pyronix does it come with full instructions as there are limited downloads on the internet

I want to use the same PIR's as well.

Yes the 46 includes the install, programming and user guide 

 

Your bell box should be compatable  (you can attach a picture if you want so i can verify that it is compatable)

 

I believe the recall was for communication to ARC (alarm receiving centre)

Thanks for the info, I will get a picture tomorrow. 

 

I assume the recall was just a firmware update in the end?

 

Do you believe the PIR's should be OK?

Pirs should be fine if you don't plan to use EOL
