I know selective zone chiming is available with some systems, but how about the L7000 or a hybridized Vista 20P? I want the keypad to announce only when someone is on our porch or in our patio.

That's good to know. If I use a DOR relay for the hard wired bells in the hybrid panel, they would continue to wake the dead if the panel is ripped off the wall. Our front door would have to be...
