Simple alarm system

I need a system to monitor 3 outside entrance doors with Amico type magnetic reed switches in door and frame and 1 inside motion sensor all hard wired.
Just a simple mechanical system with on off switch, no delay, or phone dialing needed.
Capable of activating 2 or 3, 12 volt sirens??? Elk brand or what ever Indoor/Outdoor 120dB Siren

What system do I need to purchase and a vendor to purchase from?
Thank you ,Jerry Green

Just go with one if the 4 or 6 zone systems from DSC or any of the major brands. The programming is actually pretty basic, and for what you want, most of the default settings will do what you want.

Are you looking to design and build one yourself?

Shouldn't be too difficult to build a fairly crude system with a switch, some relays and a power supply or two.
