    First post to the forum so please excuse me if its a frustrating newbie question.

    I'm just about to pull the plug on purchasing a Premier elite 24 system, I've got my eyes on a couple of kits which seem to the cheapest way of purchasing but none of these suit my needs perfectly, is there anywhere I can build a kit to suit? When I put everything together individually the price rockets compared to the kits.

    Many thanks

    Have you considered contacting the companies stating what you want and seeing if they can adapt a kit to suit?

    I suspect they would appreciate the business at the mo and may well help you

    Unfortunately without know what you want to make the system up with its impossible to say.

    Again its the same for installers, a lot of the kits have certain PIR's supplied with them of which I wouldn't use.

    so for example all wireless Texecom panels come with petwise sensors, as do Pyronix kits and various others.

    KIT 5 comes with QD-W and DT-W sensors, which I prefer to use.

    The kits are in the main made up by the manufacturers, some distributors have their own kits made by up the manufacturers but many don't.

    Some companies make up their own kits and whilst that would be cheaper than buying separately it wont be as cheap as the manufacturer made kits due to handling if that makes any sense,

    Brilliant thanks for the help, I'll try giving some a ring tomorrow.

    @secureiam avoiding the pet sensors was one thing I wanted to do as well as skipping out the dummy sounder.

    I'm after 4 DT sensors
    keypad for the hall
    means of disabling the alarm from the garage so maybe a second keypad
    proximity tags
    smartcom
    This will be hardwired but I want the ability to add either wired or wireless additions later on.

    Glad they've been recommended it's actually Alert I've got the kit sat in the basket, they seem to have the most comprehensive stock of Texecom components.

    There are a few different keypads available which can affect the cost.

    if you bought a kit 86 (you have two zones on keypad to use, 4 on the panel, built in wireless), use the micro contact on the door (if wiring a contact to it isn't easy), sell off the PW-W online and get £30plus for each one which would pay for hard wired DT's.

    Then you can add either an SMK, FMK keypad in the hallway, or opt for a cheap LCDP for the garage?

    Need to decide what you want and then work out the best way to buy

    Just been doing some Googling and this is the sort of advice I've been looking for, still trying to work out a whole shopping list but this has given me more options rather than solely focusing on the wired kits.

    Does this all make sense, seems crazy that the kit is £200 but £120 is the value of the 3 pir's

    It’s not completely mad and the logic is you need x things for a basic system.

    don’t use Casil batteries don’t rate them, then again Yuasa cost more like for like.

    As for which sensors, can’t say much as not seen the property, but DT’s are less prone to false alarms.

    Thanks @secureiam, had a guy servicing our works Texecom alarms this morning and cornered him for a chat, he posed a question as to why I wasn't using Texecom smoke and heat alarms integrated into my alarm, I had planned Aico alarms on their own ring but Texecom would come in considerably cheaper and make use of the panel and smartcom, how would this work with the 64w panel?
