I'm not sure if this is sarchasm or not... (really, I don't know)
I'm not scrapping the whole project, just my display method.
I did reduce the number of Zone inputs too. rather than 32 total zones (just because I could), to just 8 analog zones. Why analog, some may ask? because I found an interesting little circuit that uses resistors to detect the difference between a tripped sensor, and a cut/shorted line.

As I woke up with some serious heart-burn, I won't get into to the math, but it looks like it will work.
No, that wasn't sarcasm haha. I do wish you luck and if you need help ever just give me a shout!
