Casi-Rusco Systems - What To Do With Them?

A few years ago 'Picture Perfect' and 'Secure Perfect' Casi-Rusco platforms were discontinued. And if I have my story straight, the brand merged into GE Security/Interlogix, UTC bought GE Security, and the Casi-Rusco name disappeared.

A number of 'retrofit solutions' have been offered (ie: Middleware, AMAG/G4S, Lenel - also a UTC brand, and other 'Mercury-based' platforms), but these solutions represent new, additional cost.

The integrator I worked for never carried Casi-Rusco, so that market is cloudy to me. There has to be a large (huge?) number of Casi's legacy installed base who are doing nothing but trying to keep what they have working.

Do you see end users holding onto their Casi systems? What is the reception like to 'upgrade/retrofit' kits?
