This is precisely the type of system I have at present. It is usable
providing nothing goes wrong. However, with wear the numbers do not always
register. We have sorted the problem temporarily by changing the code to new
numbers but it is still not reliable enough.

Kiran,

The DT system is definitely workable. There is a keypad set up like a
telephone keypad, and you have to enter a four digit code to set the alarm,
and the same four digit code to switch it off when you come in. There is no
accessible output from the screen, but I had few problems in the time I had
the alarm.

Best,

David.

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.
