    Anyone had any experience or know much about this system ? Came recommended but doesn't appear to be any reviews etc on it.

    I would save your money....

    It doesn’t look graded, and it screams DIY alarm system,which I am not surprised by. Also for the price, you could get Enforcer or Texecom kit for the same amount. Enforcer you can add Wifi cameras and have one app with cameras and alarm.



    Hope that helps

    Thanks for the feedback. I am leaning towards the Pyronix Enforcer for ease of installation and programming rather than Texecom. I've installed a few Accenta G4's previously in a couple of rentals so got a little experience but I know they're a pretty basic system.

    Yes cameras at a later date would be ideal.

    Rather than a Pyronix wireless external sounder is it possible to hook up a wired Texecom Odyssey X3 as I quite like the looks and the way it is lit up at night. Plus there's no messing in replacing batteries.

    You can use a wired bell box but be careful with the power requirements, you will be better off with pyronix bell box delta bell e.

    What's the issue/difference between the Texecom odyssey X3 and say Pyronix Deltabell Plus ? Is the Texecom not compatible or difficult to wire up ? Both will be wired back to the panel. Power requirements ? Suppose the Pyronix is more straight forward as it's own same brand.

    I prefer the illuminated back lit as its a nice deterrent.

    You would have to check the current consumption on the texecom bellbox

    never heared of it till now and they are based a few miles away from me apparently

    there was a product recall for gear made in 2017 on there web site.

    The issue is power without a doubt.

    Me too. Only heard about this brand the other day and when I was in Grax this morning they had a large display on the wall. The sales person said they sell really well apparently.
