I've had an ADT alarm, and whilst not entirely accessible, setting and
unsetting it wasn't a problem. Further to this, the staff at ADT knew of my
disability, and said that if I encountered any problems, they'd help sort
them out, which indeed, they did.

Best,

David.

Hi,

The Centico (SP) system that Steve used to deal with I believe is no more,
it was quite expensive.

The system we have here doesn't actually have a screen on it, everything is
controlled with lights and beeps, and to access any of the advanced
functions of the unit you need an engineer code which I don't have, and the
turning on and off of the system is very simple.  I do have a feature on it
where you can turn off a specific zone in the house for pets etc. by using a
programme button but this again is very usable without sight.

Not sure of the make/model etc. it was just from a local company.

Andrew.
