Recommendations for wired alarm with 2 partitions?


Senior Member
Thinking of replacing a wired alarm system with 2 partitions. First partition has 16 zones. Second partition has 8. Have an alula for monitoring the system that would be replaced. Some sort of simple HA interface (reporting events) would be a plus but not required. Would be replacing a Caddx NX8E.

Pretty much any alarm system can do 2 partitions. Regarding HA features, I think ELK M1G and DSC lead the pack. I am a fan of the ELK - very feature rich.

Does ELK still sell the ELK M1EZ8? May be another option if they do. Not as flexible as the M1G, but still did the job really well back when I had one.

I've been looking on and off for years trying to find the right replacement for my UltraSync. Since I have a fairly expensive Loxone for automation I want to avoid Elk. I like what I see in the Bosch B Series. Hoping to get to that project this fall.
