This is true. I didn't completely read the original I guess. There is a suppossed recall on the 70.5 however, they still haven't asked us to send the units back to the MFG. I can get ANY of the remotes however, so please get me the model number of your alarm and I can atleast give you the compatibility of other remotes. In this class of alarm, in most cases there are not many different pads available that will work other than the exact specified transmitter that is required. With some of the older, less expensive alarms, there tend to be 2 or more you can sometime program.
