I've been very interested in getting this security panel:

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Vintage-Fire-Bur ... 4aec4cc3ec

However, I do have no clue on anything security system panels. I don't know if anyone here could possibly shed some light on if this is really a good buy or not, and if there is too much things wrong/missing for it to actually function. I can tell there are some things missing, but if its simple enough I would like to restore the panel.

Definitely for the experimenter. I found a site that has the manual - all 4 pages. It requires a log in to see the entire thing.

The site does show the first page in miniature. You can make out that a 12 volt transformer is needed.

That looks like an advanced panel for its time (1979 is the copyright date). It would be a cool thing to have but it is very unpractical now. You might possibly need a PROM programmer to program it as well.

For some reason I remember someone saying they could do it with a Raspberry Pi, which might be cheaper than the programmer. Is this true?

I don't think that would be possible. I am really only familiar with the Ademco PROM programming system, which requires a full fledged programmer. Don't know much about FBII.
