Currently have a very old wired paradox alarm system installed with 3 sensors that doesn't work so good, and was looking to put in a new alarm, while trying to utilize the existing wiring.

 

Every time I search for an alarm system all I can find is wireless systems, which is nice but I would prefer to have a wired system.

 

 

 

Does anyone know where I can look for wired alarm systems that don't cost a bank?

I had a arrowhead alarm put in just under a year ago fully wired and I am very pleased with it

Surely a quick search in your area would turn up multiple options for alarm installers?  You may find a label of the installers of your current system somewhere on the main control box (or inside)...possibly a good place to start.

If you're looking to DIY, most electrical wholesalers will sell you a basic system kit for a few hundred bucks.

Probably the path I will take, they just don't advertise any prices.
Will have to go old school and talk to people about it.

is there actually anything wrong with your current one in terms of performance / reliability or were you just after more smarts? 

 

if its more smarts you can use https://konnected.io/ to make a dumb alarm smart

Yeah, it's like getting blood from a stone.

 

 

 

They usually have a stack of specials books on the desk and there's often an alarm system in there, though. Or if you know a sparky.
