Great basic kit for my shopReview by Richard
Installation was a breeze. Setup took some time to learn the programming part, but after that. No problem. (Posted on 10/2/14)

Excellent product. Easy too install, but hard to program. Do your reading of the manual before starting programming. (Posted on 9/11/14)
This is the 2nd DSC system I have installed within the past 5 ...Review by Pat M
This is the 2nd DSC system I have installed within the past 5 months. The first for my home and then just recently for my brother's home as a Christmas gift. Please note that HSS had a great return policy when purchasing for Christmas gifts, with a no restocking fee on returns. I just utilized that service for a few of the accessories I ordered to go with this base system. As many have said, it is worth the extra dollars to seek a kit that includes the alpha keypad (RFK5500). This not only is helpful for the end user, with clearly stated details (Zone Names, Instructions/System Status), but makes programming possible.

I cannot say enough about the Tech Support provided by HSS, especially on my first system. They immediately got my system up and running in very little telephone time. The 2nd system I was totally able to program myself based on what I learned on the first system. Once you understand the concept, the manual is very complete, but don't get frustrated. Hook the system up and give them a call! These systems are solid performers. No false alarms to date. No hiccups.... Everything works fine every time. Buy DSC with confidence but only from someone like HSS who has Tech support available. (Posted on 1/22/14)
This system was perfect for our needs. When our house was built, ...Review by Peter Harrison
This system was perfect for our needs. When our house was built, it came pre-wired for a security system, and had wires running from a blank cover plate at the back of our hallway closet to six sensor/zone locations (front door, back door, house-garage door, the back door from the garage to the garden, and two motion sensor locations at the Southwest and Northwest corners of our first-floor, allowing these two motion sensor locations to "see" almost our entire first floor), and two keypad locations (front/garage entry area and master bedroom), and for an external siren.

DSC's "1616" based Kit16 supports six wired zone/sensor locations (expandable to 16 locations), which perfectly matches the number of pre-wired zones in our home, and comes with both a keypad and interior siren. I paired this basic system with four BR-1012 Press Fit Contact sensors for our doors and two LC-100-PI motion sensors, which gives us almost complete coverage of the most likely areas through which a burglar or other nair-do-well might enter our home. I also installed an Envisalink EVL-3 Internet module to allow us to self-monitor our system through text messages and a web page and connect our alarm to an affordable alarm monitoring service.

The hardest part of the physical installation of our system was locating the hidden wires for our motion sensors. Finding the wires for our door sensors was easy; all I had to do was look for the tell-tale plastic button wire covers located on the top edge inside our door jams. The wires for our keypad locations were easy to locate, too. The keypad wiring was tucked behind blank electrical plates in the main entry area and master bedroom. The siren wire (which I didn't use because our neighbourhood CRCs don't allow alarm sirens) was sticking out from the roof eaves at the back of the house. These wires I could locate, then identify and tag at the control panel location using a multi-tester. The motion sensor wires, however, were hidden somewhere in the walls.

To locate the motion sensor wiring I use (Posted on 9/7/13)
