    ....I know, what is the group coming to?

    Before I just dive in and try this, maybe someone can answer me a quick
    question: would a DSC keypad perchance work with a Paradox panel?

    I've recently "come into" an SP-6000 panel and figure I might as well
    replace the (relatively) ancient DSC PC1500 that came with my place (and
    maybe use it to replace the fried 1550 in my sister's place)... but will
    I need to replace my existing keypad? Do these panels use proprietary
    protocols with their keypads?

    I'm guessing it probably won't work, but it's worth asking...

    RHC: No, it won't work. Only the line of keypads designed for the
    SP6000 will work with that control panel. Even the slightly older
    Spectra 1738 / 1759 keypads are not compatible with the new SP6000

    Alright, that's what I figured. Guess I'll be grabbing a keypad on my
    next stop by Burtek.

    Thanks!

    Why would I care? I have a DSC system already.

    I have no idea. I don't think anyone actually had a "destination" in mind.


    No, it's not (worth asking). Ya cheap prick... go out and get yourself
    a real system. Elk M1Gold. :)

    Yes. A Paradox keypad. For the SP-6000 I now have.

    Go back and read the original message again.

    In fact, let me help you out:
    "I've recently come into an SP-6000 panel and figure I might as well

    And ADI/Burtek sells Paradox? - don't think so.

    Well, that's where I got the panel from in the first place.

    http://burtek.com/products/items/intrusion.htm

    9th line down, right column.

    Any more stupid questions?

    I'm not sure how much longer Burtek/ADI is going to be able to carry the
    Paradox line. I'm sorta waiting for that "shoe" to drop. :)

    Perhaps... however, at this particular time, Burtek (at least here in
    Vancouver) DOES carry Paradox, and I have both the SP-6000 panel and
    Magellan keypad purchased from them to prove it :)

    Apparently it already has dropped at least according to the line card
    listing for US.

    I'm kinda wondering if we shouldn't stock up on my favourite Paradox
    motions before that "other shoe" drops. :)
