It will not be the same as the orginal....it is a clone. Won't be supported by the manufactor of the device.

I don't think I would have near the expectations as the orginal.

By the looks of it, it IS the original. Labor is always the BIG price in these things. And knowledge in knowing what wires to cut and splice into the "key".

My understanding is that they are authentic but old stock and an older design. They were bought when a old supplier went out of business.

I think I remember Revelco saying that they may have been in a flood but they haven't prooved it.

I may buy one also since I can't find a supplier close to my home in Ontario Canada.

I'll just be careful with my original keys because revelco will NOT sell me new keys if I lose them.

I'll also keep the wiring diagram and all wiring choices in my safe, in case I need to remove it some day.

If Revelco wants to come to my home in Hamilton Ontario to install their official one, I'll be happy to let them do it.
