http://www.smarthome.com/79465/GE-Security-GEC-60-511-02-95-Crystal-PIR-Wireless-Motion-Sensor-Pet-Immune/p.aspx

I'm trying to decide which wireless reciever I will need. Do I need this one...

or this one...

Thanks for your help!

The Elk unit is for an M1 Gold. The Caddx unit looks to be designed for a different brand and line of security panel, an NX panel with a 3-wire interface.

Well the Elk M1 Gold book mentions using the GE NX548E so I think both can be used.

You may want to read this thread seems Caddx updates and support for the ELK is at end of life.
