Texecom Kit Needed Help

I currently have a very old Texecom Veritas 8 set up and I am looking to upgrade to the Premier Elite but I'm not sure if I need all the same kit.

At the moment we have the panel hidden away and have 2 keypads. One keypad is in the hall that is used for a full set and one keypad is on the upstairs landing used for night time part set. The installer has set it so that we get 30 seconds to leave the house on a full set and an instant arm on the part set. Since we have a PIR also covering hall I presume that is why we have an upstairs keypad otherwide the PIR would cause the part set to go off straight away.

I was wondering if on a new setup I could do away with the landing keypad and have just one keypad in the hall set up so that a part set gives a delay (say 15 seconds) for both arming and disarming so that the hall PIR doesn't set the alarm off before I get upstairs or would I be better just removing the hall PIR and go for an instant part set?
