Upgrade / fix / replace old Gardtec alarm

Gardtec was a UK-based alarm system manufacturer - big in the 80’s and 90’s - who were acquired by the Risco Group in the 2000’s.  With the Risco acquisition, the Gardtec brand was disbanded and products replaced by Risco’s newer / up-to-date product range.

Because of this, Gardtec alarm equipment is now mostly obsolete, and difficult to replace / fix.

How to fix old Gardtec alarm equipment

The good news is that although it is close to impossible to find a replacement Gardtec alarm panel - as they stopped manufacturing so long ago - it is possible to replace wired sensors on a Gardtec alarm system - as most new wired alarm sensors will be compatible with Gardtec systems.

Gardtec replacement alarm sensors

If you needed Gardtec PIR / movement sensors fixing / replacing, AMCO could easily replace these with our standard Texecom PIR sensors.  The same goes for standard door contacts and vibration sensors.

Gardtec 800 alarm replacement / upgrade

As the Gardtec 800 alarm is no longer manufactured, the best option is to completely replace the alarm panel (the main brain) and also the remote keypads.

As the Gardtec 800 is a wired alarm system this is relatively easy to do - as most new wired alarm systems are compatible / easily swapped out.

AMCO would recommend replacing the Gardtec 800 with the Texecom Premier Elite alarm system.  The Premier is one of the most advanced systems on the market, and has the flexibility of being both wired and wireless and also being modular - meaning that you can easily upgrade in the future - for example adding ‘smartphone app’ functionality.

Gardtec alarm monitoring upgrade

If you don’t want to replace your whole alarm system, one option to upgrade your Gardtec alarm system is to add alarm monitoring to it.  AMCO’s recommendation would be to add LiveTalk alarm monitoring to it - giving you the best alarm monitoring on the market.  Read more about LiveTalk here >>
