Westec 760/Keypad problem?

    Any recommendations where I can get a new Keypad for Westec security
    system 760 (circa 1975). I'm having a problem with the Emergency/
    Panic alarm going off spontaneously and it's been suggested the pad is
    the culprit (but it is no longer being made). Any suggestions as to
    the cause and the solution?

    Thanks!

    An Antique store perhaps?

    Thanks for the tip. I'm sure you're right. Just trying to delay the
    inevitable as long as I can.

    I don't see how an "old system" would be any "more secure" than a new
    one given components of equal type and quality. There are still plenty
    of panels out there that are still goin' strong. If it ain't broke,
    don't fix it. This guy needs a new keypad. If he can source one
    without having to replace the entire system, then good on him.

    Down time is less secure. More frequent failures is less secure. The
    fact that you know it's demise is close and inevitable is not
    achieving the peace of mind one would have with a newer system.

    I think that... all sumed up .... equals .......... less secure.

    Hmmm... can't argue with you on any of these points when you sum the
    all up like that, however, you have to keep in mind that keypads are one
    of the "weak links" in any system (considering some of the abuse they
    take). Replacing a whole system because a keypad is on the fritz isn't
    the criteria I would normally use to justify upgrading a customer to a
    "newer system". We usually try to source a replacement (at a reasonable
    price) and only when that's not possible is it time to change the control.
