    Hi,
    I am new to alarm system. I am trying to install a FBI xl 2t alarm
    system. Can I install vibration sensor and magnetic sensor in
    series ?
    Can I use a remote sensor to arm/disarm the system ?
    What is the best type of PIR / or type of sensor to be installed in
    the attic ( sometimes there could be rats and causing false alarm ) ?
    Thank you in advance for the help.

    Old system.

    Will the duration of the vibe sensor hold it's relay open at the same time
    the mag switch does? And how can you be sure. So the answer would be maybe
    but I wouldn't count on it.

    Yes..maybe...why? The alarm would arm and disarm everything the pir saw
    movement. Interesting effect. The panel also has to have a momentary arming
    zone...hmmm maybe a latching arming zone.

    Due to temps in an attic I doubt it would be very effective..not to mention
    dust...and critters.

    You probably could. You'd have to test it to make sure the "vibration"
    detector would work with your system. Sometimes they operate to
    quickly for an alarm panel to react.
    It's not clear what you mean by a "remote sensor"
    No motion sensors in the attic. If you have concerns about someone
    gaining entry to your home via the attic, you must protect the living
    areas that they could gain entry to by way of the attic.

    Truthfully, you sound like it would be better for you to contact
    someone in your area to assist you in choosing security. Your
    questions show too much lack understanding about alarm systems. You're
    bound to do something wrong and not realize it until it's too late.
