    I have a smoke alarm that you can buy a relay expansion board for. I can't remember the part number but did get it from TLC.

    depends how many you need but, if it's more than a few, having simple sensors & a central control box could be a good / economical way to go - with an optional relay-out board fitted in the box to provide info' via digital inputs to Cortex ...

    that's what we've done, anyway - so Cortex knows where the problem is, and can assist accordingly ...

    Mind if I ask how much your system cost? I was looking at doing this and couldn't seem to get a figure below 4 figures, which for my size of house seemed excessive.

    these don't seem that expensive :

    our first choice was these :

    but it's no longer clear how they would be used with a panel ...

    in the end, we went with some of this ...

    Ah! I should have known to check TLC.....used them for so many other of my supplies.

    That second link contains relay bases the same as mine which brings us back on topic nicely!
