    Just trying to sort out which alarm panel to buy, and its down to the Texecom premier 24 or 48, the main difference being the 48 supports several areas, the 24 only one.

    I want to be able to alarm the house, the garage and the workshop, each area will have its own RKP, and i'd like to have the garage and workshop alarmed all the time no one is in there, do i need to set them up as seperate areas to achieve this?

    Thanks

    The 24 will allow you to have 'part sets' which set only certain areas, with you setting and unsetting from any keypad.

    The 48 will allow you to do the same, but also create 'areas' instead. Areas can be assigned their own keypad and zones. You then kind of effectively have three seperate systems.

    For the difference in price, I would go for the 48. What price have you seen?

    I operate my system in areas three in all

    House Garage and Shed

    Each has its own code so I can set or unset each one individually I use

    one lcd

    keypad in the house to control all three although i could if i wished have

    separate keypads.

    I use a Gardtec 595 panel which i prefer to the ones you are talking about

    It will give you what you ask for plus it has a built in dialer so in the event

    of an alarm in will ring you and tell you which zone has gone off


    In just making a general point if your garage and workshop are not

    100% insect proof i would not use movement detectors either duel tech or

    pir because you will get false alarms in summer
