X10 add-on for alarm
Texecom alarm panel (Good)
Good DIY alarm info
 
The Texecom premier alarm panel seems to be the most flexible with the bonus of X10 capability & also being very expendable if you purchase the right model. The Texecom panels have been recommended on a couple of forums & is well supported. I contacted the company direct & was very pleased with the service & speed of response i got from a Janet Green. I singed up as an installer (which we do the carcass work for alarm company's when on site) & was promptly sent some installation manuals which have been very handy. (Thanks)
The 48 unit would quite likely be enough, but for the extra 20 & some extra wiring, the 88 will leave plenty of expendability. It also log's the last 1000 items where as the 48 is only logs 500. Would be nice with a larger log as i know some people use there panels as clocking in machines.
(
see if this is expandable for staff time table)
There bell boxes & sounders. The detectors have to be looked at yet.
