    What`s best replacement for gardtec 593 ?

    a power cut has recently blown the system up no power showing on it. after changing the battery as an error was showing it still says power cut as the error and no green light showing.

    It may be best to cut my losses and replace it as it was already in the house no idea when it was installed.

    was hoping to replace it with another wired system as may as well use the wires already there and replace everything else. not looking forward to the bell boxes :LOL: up ladders etc.

    what is best the best replacement for the 593 was hoping i could get alerts on my phone from the system too, but without subscription fees ?

    Best replacement, well thats open to peoples current preferences.

    something simple and hard wired?

    what is the current bellbox ?

    as for charges:-
    Texecom don't charge currently for app notifications
    Orisec don't charge currently for app notifications
    Risco, Pyronix, Scantronic do charge

    Galaxyguy does self mon which is cheap but not free

    yes something simple to install and reliable that can use the same wiring setup.

    a mix of wireless to expand it and wired capability would be nice and app notifications.

    All these extras are going to cost you …. To add wireless to any panel your looking at £100 extra on top of any panel ….any comms option is going to be extra £50-£100 again on top

    these aren’t Micky mouse ebay items
    These are insurance graded products that cost vast amounts to meet these standards…. One thing that people don’t understand !

    Think that is a step backwards ! Either look for a replacement 593 pcb on ebay or if your going to replace the control panel fit a premier 24 …you can set the resistor value for gardtec if your panel Is wired EOL
