Upgrade options for alarm system

I have a PC1555 system currently, but the previous owners did not leave a code and I tried reseting the system but they have the lockout enabled. I looked at getting a new system, but I would prefer to use all of the old sensors since every window and door in the house has sensors already on them and it is already all wired up. I was hoping to be able to find a new control panel and keypad that maybe even had wifi for use with an app or something. Is there anything out there like this? All I have been able to find is the wireless systems and would prefer not to have to buy all new sensors. Any help would be appreciated.

Get a DSC PC1864 or PC1616. It's the current generation replacement for what you already have. Hardwired Door/Window contacts are just dumb switches, and will work on any hardwired alarm system. If you get the DSC, even the end of line resistors (if they used them) will be the same value.
