I have an old legacy HW Illumination which may have died. I've discussed the problem in another subform here. My questions are:

If I have to get a new HW system, is there an easy way to upgrade without having to rip out every keypad. Changing the basement hardware seems to be a foregone conclusion.

Also, I've been able to program the system myself with HW Illumination software. Will that be possible with any new system?

Any other suggestions?
