Details

While the DSC Power 1832 Security Kit is a hardwired alarm system, its user-friendly installation makes it so that stress won't be a part of the setup process! The DSC Power 1832 Security Kit is the perfect all-in-one solution for those wanting to protect their homes at a reasonable price without the hassle of finding compatible parts.

Among the kit's parts are:

  • An impressive RF keypad with wireless capabilities
  • A reliable interior surface mount siren
  • A powerful PC1832 control panel

The keypad itself is the DSC RFK5501 LCD Picture Icon Keypad. Its user-friendly interface is designed to provide the best protection without a lot of detailed work on the homeowner's part, and features FIVE programmable keys allowing one-button activation of the system's functions.

These keys' default functions include:

  • stay arming
  • away arming
  • door chime
  • smoke detector reset
  • quick exit

Most hardwired alarm systems make you go through a sometimes galling arm/disarm process when leaving or entering your home. But with the keypad's QUICK-EXIT key that is now a thing of the past! Simply push the button once and you'll be able to easily let your dog out, or grab the mail!

Additionally, the RFK5501 keypad supports eight different languages and global partition status. And because the unit also comes with a built-in wireless receiver, it's able to support 32 wireless zones and 16 wireless keys without taking up a wireless zone slot. What this means is that while the keypad itself is wired, it's capable of working with any wireless sensors, motion detectors and glass breaking devices you'd like to put around your home.

Other features:

  • Modern, slim-line landscape keypad
  • Enlarged keypad buttons
  • 5 programmable function keys
  • Input/Output terminal can be programmed to operate as a zone input, programmable output or as a low temperature sensor
  • Individual FAP keys
  • Multiple door chime per zone
  • Adjustable backlight and keypad buzzer
  • Wire channel
  • Dual wall-mount and front cover tamper
  • Easy-to-install mounting hinge
  • Surface or single-gang box mount
  • New AC status ICON
  • RFK5501 includes all of the same features and supports 32 wireless zones and 16 wireless keys

Siren Overview

The SD 15W-ULF Siren that comes with this system is a self-contained, surface-mount, un-tampered dual tone interior siren that is designed as a household burglar alarm system accessory, but could also function as an audible signal appliance for fire alarm systems. When power is applied to this device, the siren produces an audible steady or yelp tone according to the wiring.

Control Panel

The PC1832 control panel, which is a metal cabinet, will be mounted out of the way in a utility closet or in the basement. The metal cabinet contains the system electronics, fuses and back up battery, and acts as the security system's hub. What sets this control panel apart from others on the market, however, is how impressively it lends itself to upgradability. The Kit as it is works as a powerful and effective home security device, but as the you become more familiar with home security and burglar alarms you might eventually want to upgrade your equipment. This control panel lets you do just that as it features 8 hardwire zone inputs, can support up to 8 keypads, allows 32 user codes, and features 4 partitions! What this means it that you could easily attach additional parts, including keypads, motion sensors, glass break detectors, door contacts and even fire detection devices, all without having to buy an entirely new system! All of these products and more are available here at HomeSecurityStore.com.

You're in for a bit of a shock when it comes to programming, it's not simple. But there is lots of resources on the web to help, Plus HSS Tech Supports is good. (Posted on 10/2/14)

Please note that DSC packages and sells their system and devices with the intent for them to be installed by trained installers and not end users.
The simplicity of their manuals are on par with other systems which are also written with the expectations a trained installer will be reading them. As mentioned already, their panels are difficult to program with a standard LCD numerical display keypad. Installers such as myself carry LCD Text display keypads on their vehicle just for programming / troubleshooting systems.
There are systems out there which are designed as DIY kits. They lack many of the advanced features to simplify programming by the end user. Other more feature rich DIY kits are designed to have the manufacturer remotely program the system for the customer via downloading the system programming over the phone. (Posted on 10/6/12)

From a feature and reliability, this prodcut works well. I actually bought two of them at once. I setup the 1st system 2 years ago, and just added the second system to another house this week.

From a programming and software setup perspective, it is horrible. Manuals are provided for each component and you have to skip around to try to figure it out. For example, you have to turn on the wireless feature on for each zone that you use a wireless sensor for and you have to figure out if that zone is partitioned fist. It shows that as the 8th column on a table on page 32 of the manual for the circuit board, yet you can do nothing without it. Again, the instructions are horrible, not intuative in any way, and ulmost unusable. I did call the tech support at Home Security Store (HSS)though, and they were helpful but not enough so to overcome the bad instuctions from DSC. If HSS would simply write a 1 page summary instruction sheet to get you started with the components of the "system" they sold, it could prevent hours and hours of frustration! (Posted on 9/10/11)

Great system. Very easy to install this and the vanishing wireless contacts are a tenth of the size of the older wireless contacts. Tech support here is great, you are not on your own. (Posted on 6/23/11)

Overall a good kit with numerous feature advantages. But, an Alpha keypad should be included because it helps tremendously when programming. The included RFK-5501 keypad is great for adding wireless capabilities, but lacks feedback when used to program the system. This makes it harder to effectively navigate through the programming structure easily, think of flying blind. However, this is not a big problem if you purchase a PK-5500 along with this system. You still can not see the user defined descriptions on the RFK-5501 such as "Living Room", it just shows the zone number. This is my reason for not giving this great DSC system a 5 star rating.

I also verified that the Home Security Store will not allow you to upgrade this keypad by paying the difference because it is considered part of a "kit". I guess that when I purchase the upgrade to the RFK-5500 Alpha keypad, I will have to resell the RFK-5501 myself (eBay). I think that the upgrade option, even to kits, should be made available. This is a great disservice to your customers. (Posted on 8/2/10)
