Note that the S-Com factory still supports all of the 5K, 6K and 7K controllers, including spare parts stock.
The S-Com corporate web site has a wealth of information on the Resources page at http://www.scomcontrollers.com/resource.shtml.
One trick that has been done to confuse folks that want to play with your system is to use a courtesy tone that is commonly used by another brand of controller. The ACC page at this web site has a PDF that describes the factory shipped courtesy beeps. They are included in the courtesy tones collection page (trust me - the "Nextel Beep" is cute, but becomes real annoying after a while).
The 2.04x version of the firmware for the 7K was developed by Vyex (from the S-Com 7K 2.03x firmware) to fully integrate the new Digital Audio board with the 7K controller. A number of very useful features were added at the same time (like an IF-THEN-ELSE construct). Support for all 2.04x issues is provided by Vyex, with contact information on their web page.
