    Hi so i have been advised to go hardwired for my alarm, so i would need 3 pir's remote keypad panel, sounder, battery and cable and somehow to alert me on smart phone if activated if not too expensive otherwise drop this function, can anyone help with where to look and what ones are recommended and what to avoid ?
    Thanks

    Depends on budget and preference.
    I’d always go Texecom premier elite for hardwired

    No door contact then.

    lots of options depends on your budget and where you want to go next with it I guess

    So you could go Texecom Kit 86, flog off the wireless Pirs on ebay, buy some hard wired ones and a bell box

    Then you need cable and a battery 7Ah is the max the 64W would take, plus you could use the micro wireless contact for the front door and you could expand wirelessly later if you wish by buying wireless devices.

    You should have a front door contact whether hard wired or wireless, don't know the rest of the layout so can't comment on what sensors you should have.

    however a quick guide:-

    PIR for every room down stairs and in the hallway would be the norm, with the landing omitted when set at night
    Door contact on the entry door

    However seen some very crazy layouts of homes, along with system design that makes the alarm effectively useless

    The issue with kits is price and what you need, I have no idea of the property and its layout.

    That kit is a hard wired keypad, panel and wireless detectors, but you could get money back selling the bits and it may work out more cost effective.

    You need to do the maths the places I buy from don't sell to the public at all.

    The hardwired keypad in that kit can take two zones so with the on built panel; zones you have 6 available and you only want 4 currently.

    Kit 86 and sell off the bits you don't need
    Odyssey X back plate and the odyx 1 or 3 cover
    as for PIR's Premier Elite QD is a fair starting point (but don't know what you need as don't know where they are for)
    Yuasa 7Ah battery

    Only you can decide if the device meets the requirements of the environment its to be used in.
