About this panel:

The 4010 was introduced in 1998 and remains Simplex's most popular fire alarm panel. This is because it can cover just about any small to mid-size application and can be installed and wired by a contractor prior to being programmed by a Simplex tech. From a design perspective, it's probably my favorite. The build quality of the hardware is surperior to most competitors and the software is very well thought out. It's a nice system for collectors since it's easy to program and the passcodes can always be reset using a simple key combination (for liability reasons, contact me if you're a collector and would like to know how). The 4010 can become part of a 4100ES network with the addition of a card and can also support addressable TrueAlerts when connected to a TrueAlert IDNet controller. Similar competitor panels include the Fire-Lite MS-9200UDLS, Gamewell-FCI 7100, and Siemens FireSeeker.
