    Hi

    I would like to install a new system but there are so many Texecom options, I really don't know which to choose.

    I would like for a small semi detached:-

    -use of phone app feature
    -wireless but option to use wired if needed
    - 3 x IR detectors
    -3 vibration detectors

    Anyone recommend which kit? I understand I will need to purchase a bell box too

    Any help much appreciated

    Thanks

    Hard wired is best way to go if you can.
    If your struggling to pick then you may struggle with programming too.

    Kit1002 has all you need except

    1 x 12V 7Ah back up battery
    3 x Shock Sensors (micro shocks)
    1 x Odyssey X cover (1 or 3 and which ever colour combo you want)
    1 x Smart com (4G CEL-0007 needs a subscription for data, the standard CEL-0001 uses ethernet or wifi connection only)

    if you were going wireless that is, if you were going hardwired then you would be looking at something else.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I may use a hardwired bell solution to minimize wireless points in the system. I wonder if all the control panels except a mix of wired, none wired

    Thanks again

    WRT to Texecom the 64-W has a built in wireless expander, other panels would need a wireless expander to accept wireless zones.

    The 64-W only has 4 hard wired zones available in the panel, but an 8XP could be added at address 5 to give you 8 more hard wired zones available.

    Thanks, all food for thought with so many options out there but at least you've helped me narrow down the control panel a bit (the main part i guess)
    and that 64-W looks nearer the part.

    Does this look okay to you?


    1 x Texecom the 64-W
    1 x 12V 7Ah back up battery
    4 x Shock Sensors (micro shocks)
    1 x Odyssey X cover (1 or 3 and which ever colour combo you want)
    1 x Smart com CEL-0001

    Just need a wired bell box and keypad too I think?

    Thank you

    If you are going wireless

    Kit1002
    64w panel
    Has wireless keypad and bell included
    3 wireless Capture P15
    1 door contact
    5 Prox tags

    Kit1086
    Has 64w panel
    3 wireless Capture P15
    1 door contact
    5 Prox tags
    Hard wired keypad

    Kits will save you money so write your list of what you want and get the best kit to reflect that and then add the bits your short.

    Buying it all individually could work out more expensive
