    There is lots of choice out there, has been covered many times.

    how many sensors do you have that are currently hard wired?
    You doing the installation yourself?

    Check to see which Honeywell panel you have by looking at the label on the main control panel, which will be a metal box normally in a cupboard with the electric meter / consumer unit. If it's a Galaxy G2-12/20, there are options to add Ethernet, or swap the controls for a Galaxy Flex control panel with Ethernet module while using all the existing wiring/sensors/sounders.
