    Who is a 'REPUTABLE' online store to buy Ademco products from?

    My best advice... Buy "local". Find a Dealer in your area that's
    willing to sell you the parts. Use the "online prices" as a guide.
    That way you've got someone you can call if you run into trouble.

    The past few months I've been making money by
    design/consulting/supplying/programming competenent DIYers. I've done three
    so far and of course end up with the monitoring as well. The DIY does all
    the wire pulls and hardstuff...I show up and instruct them on how to do this
    or that, then come back periodically as the job progesses. Seems to be
    working pretty good...and keeps one old fart out of dusty attics!

    Crash, how do you handle changing the installer code for the DIY systems ? I
    too have been helping DIY'ers (and even selling to them locally), but most
    don't want monitoring. Most DIY'ers also want to retain the ability to fool
    with their system whenever they feel so inclined (and quite possibly screw
    up the panels ability to call the station...)

    The one customer that did want monitoring, I sent to a $10 monitoring centre
    in Toronto, because he wouldn't allow me to change the installer code while
    I am responsible for the system....

    Same way I always do, if they're monitored by me they are locked and
    controlled by me. Sorry, you can't mess with it. If they're local...they can
    mess with it and then pay me to reprogram it when the screw it up. I've
    never had a problem being up front about this.

    Of the three I'm working on now, two wouldn't have a clue how to program and
    have no desire, the third one is a computer geek and is actually helping me
    and I am showing him some programming stuff (only because he's very
    curious) - he knows he will be locked out of programming once it's online.

    It's kinda fun teaching these guys and letting them do all the hard work!

    The computer geek guy is funny he made up a spreadsheet of everything we've
    done, zones, model number of the window contacts (for cripes
    sakes!)...totally retentive.

    I've had similar experiences. On one "DIY" I got a call just after
    10:00 on the day the guy took off from work to do his install. He told
    me he was "in way over his head" and could I still send a couple of guys
    out to do the install at the price I had quoted. I told him no problem
    but he'd have to wait a week. Attics don't bother me that much in the
    Winter. They can be a major pain in the Summer though! :)
