    Hello

    I've already got a hardwired scantronic alarm system but it's not smart in the sense app controllable, also I would like to set the alarm whilst we are indoors but I have no contacts on the window entry points so it's not really possible.

    Any suggestions as to what I can do? Re-running new cables to the windows is not possible now as the plastering has already been done.

    Is there a smart alarm maybe I could use just for window / door indoors?

    Thanks!

    well the first question is which panel do you actually have, ie model.

    How many hardwired zones do you have?

    It's a scantronic 9751 with a separate expander and speech dialer.
    9 sensors
    3 panic alarms
    1 internal sounder
    1 external sounder
    1 door contact

    Currently the alarm it not active due to to refurbishment but the same one will be going back with new sensors and a new keypad as they got damaged during the gut out.

    Thanks

    Add radio expander and extra shock / contacts ....to be honest now that I’ve read the point about new keypad you would be better changing the panel to a hybrid with app control

    Thanks for your reply.

    So you are suggesting that I go all new with a new hybrid system which will be part hardwired and part radio?

    Can you please send me a link to one of these?
    Thanks
