1) No, but you can use the Quik Bridge Receiver and the wireless CO detector to connect to a hardwire zone. The QB Rec is only about $20 anyway.

Absolutely - you just need to replace the panel, the keypad and the siren (which is not really a siren, it's a speaker and won't work with a system that doesn't have a built-in driver.)

Good luck!

There's not really an easy way to do it - the Brinks systems require a handheld programmer to do any installer programming. So, with the equipment you have available, you can't do anything to the...

Only dealers have access to the DLS software. Plus, it's extremely difficult to get working - it's very touchy to the type of modem used and the baud rates, etc. You can purchase DSC's modem for...
