Details

Prepare for launch. The DSC Power 1832 Security Kit is one of the most popular home security systems in the do-it-yourself world because of its simplicity and capability. Everything you need to start building a powerful alarm system is right here, at an extremely affordable price. This kit is similar to the KIT32POWER-5NT, however this kit (KIT32-POWER5) includes a transformer.

This Home Security Kit Includes:

  • (1) Power1832 Alarm Control Panel - Cabinet 11-1/2 x 11 x 3
  • (1) PK5501ENG LCD Keypad
  • (1) LC-100-PI - Digital PIR Detector w/ Pet Immunity
  • (1) 16V40VA plug-in transformer
  • (1) BD4-12 12V, 4Ah backup battery
  • (1) SD-15 15-Watt interior surface mount siren
  • (1) RJ31X telephone jack and cord

The keypad in any home security system is an integral component meant to send commands to the system and to display the current system status. The Power1832 Kit comes with the DSC PK5501ENG Keypad which is characterized by modern slim-line landscaped design and provides an audible indicator and large command keys. The screen itself is LCD and offers an alphanumeric liquid crystal display capable of displaying messages in different languages, ensuring that language will never be a barrier between you and your family's safety. Ideally, the unit should be mounted in a convenient location inside the protected premises near any enter/exit doors.

Additional features include:

  • 5 programmable function keys
  • Input/Output terminal can be programmed to operate as a zone input or a programmable output Wire channel
  • New AC status Icon
  • Dual wall-mount and front cover tamper
  • Easy-to-install mounting hinge
  • Individual FAP keys
  • Multiple door chime per zone
  • Adjustable backlight and keypad buzzer
  • Surface or single-gang box mount

The LC-100-P Motion Sensor that comes with the Power 1832 Kit has one of the more useful features on the market today. Indeed, we'd all like to protect our homes from intruders, but many of us also have family pets that we'd like to leave at home during the day. To eliminate the possibility of your motion sensor mistaking the family pet as an intruder, DSC has integrated the LC-100-P motion sensor with a special Pet-Immunity interface that can distinguish between a burglar and a pet weighing up to 55 lbs! Now you can leave your pets at home and know that the Power1832 Kit will.

Other features:

  • Form A alarm contact and tamper switch
  • Digital signal analysis
  • Pet immunity up to 55 lbs (25 kg)
  • Quad Linear Imaging Technology for sharp analysis of body dimensions and differentiation from backgrounds and pets
  • Advanced ASIC-based electronics
  • Compact design for residential installations
  • Adjustable variable pulse count
  • PIR sensitivity adjustment

The Power1832 Alarm Control Panel itself, which measures at a convenient 11-1/2 x 11 x 3, serves as the hub of the powerful security system. The control panel shares a universal hardware/software design that ensures an equal and rich feature set and easy future expandability, with:

  • 8 hardwire zone inputs
  • Supports up to 8 keypads
  • 32 user codes
  • 4 partitions

What this means is that while the Power 1832 Security Kit is ideal for the first time user, those who gain more experience with time and are looking to expand the system and its capabilities don't have to go out an buy an entirely new system! Instead, you could easily attach additional parts, including keypads, motion sensors, glass break detectors, door contacts and even fire detection devices. All of these products and more are available here at HomeSecurityStore.com.

Features Now Standard Throughout the POWERSERIES Platform

  • SIA CP-01 compliant
  • Partitionable auto-arm timer
  • Zone follower output
  • No activity arming
  • Automatic Contact ID
  • Day zone
  • PGM output timer
  • Cross zoning

Features New to the POWERSERIES Platform

  • 500-event buffer
  • Single architectural design for universal feature set
  • Full module compatibility across POWERSERIES platform
  • Retains backward compatibility with all POWERSERIES modules
  • Hardware/Software architecture easily accommodates
  • future expandability
  • Programmable daylight savings time
  • Night zone
  • Time function key

CP-01 Compliant
All POWERSERIES control panels are compliant with the Security Industry Association (SIA) CP-01 standard. As more and more cities begin to incorporate this standard into their alarm ordinances for new installations, the occurrence of invalid alarm activations will be significantly reduced or eliminated.

Compatibility
POWERSERIES control panels are fully compatible, and backward compatible, with all available keypads and modules across the platform.

My system works great. Had a few bugs at first since I converted over from a hard wired alarm system that was 35 years old. The tech help is very good if you don't mind spending an hour waiting to be picked up. You must also purchase a PK5500ENG keypad. This makes life so much easier. I think that the vendor should increase the price of the package by $40 and include the better keypad instead of the one they now use. JR (Posted on 2/16/12)

Using only the installation manual, owner's manual and programming worksheet, (all included and also found online) sucessfully installed a complete DSC 632, 832 and 1832 system in the past. The programming was the most challenging part but I just sat down and figured it out with no assistance... Now, am also putting this system into an outbuilding. It's good to hear from others on here that capable tech support is available but I'm independent. Like to figure it out myself. It's just a matter of carefully reading and following the instructions. Used only LCD keypads, hardwired systems and loud sirens. Put in a system BEFORE the horse gets out of the barn (you have a break in). You can always get local technical assistance if needed.

I purchased this unit on Wednesday with two day air and received it Friday afternoon. I started the installation on Saturday and completed on Sunday. Installation was a breeze, but when I attempted to program the system with the enclosed instructions, everything came to a screeching halt! I have less than 20/20 vision and the 6 to 8 font didn't help at all. I called tech support on Monday morning and Freddie had my system up and running in less than five minutes. If not for the shabby programming instructions, the Kit32-Power5 receives five stars easily. If you are a former hostage to A**, I highly recommend this unit as a replacement for the Brinks 4000A.

I bought this system along with accessories for use in my second home in Honduras. I figured I could easilly handle the wiring but when it an the parts arrived I was a little bit concerned. I called from the US before heading down to Honduras and they gave me a 5 minute lesson and pep talk and i was calmed. I simply let the tech guys know my zones, equipment and a few other details and they emailed me the series/sequence of numbers to enter once everything was connected, It was so easy but i still let my wife think i had to work my a$$ off to install it. The system seems to work wonderfully and the TECH support is second to none. (Posted on 12/20/09)

The DSC 1832 is an upgraded version of the DSC POWER 832 system.Review by Frank
Rating
The DSC 1832 is an upgraded version of the DSC POWER 832 system. I think that the system itself is just fabulous... especially considering the cost. However, I must protest the replacement of the Programming Manuals that accompanied the 832 System with Huge Sheets of paper.. The Manuals at least had a FLOW which made it easier to follow as compared to the large difficult to navigate Programming Sheets that replaced the Manuals. For the infrequent user (My 8th system over a 3.5 year prriod) I think that the bulky Sheets in multi language format are at best difficult to use in the field. I suppose that a tabletop programing session prior to installing the panel would simplify the final programming. That however seems like an unnecessary and time consuming task. In addition the print size was made painfully small to fit on a 16 by 24 inch sheet. It is so small that for those of us with eyesight of lesser than 10/20 need a magnifying glass further adding to the inconvenience. It should be noted however that The Home Security Store still runs a First Class Tech Service and is still great in helping to overcome the confusion as it is encountered in the field.
I would, and will continue to purchase and install DSC Systems from the Home Security Store! (Posted on 9/20/07)
