The DSC Power 1832 Security Kit combines hardwired reliability with wireless simplicity. Thanks to its fully user-friendly installation, you can hardwire this system completely on your own, free from the frustration that plagues most DIY installations. This is the perfect all-in-one solution for anyone who seeks total security at an affordable price, and Home Security Store is offering it at a value you just won't find anywhere else.

In this kit, you'll receive:

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

Wireless Capabilities

Don't be fooled. While the DSC Power 1832 is a hardwired system, it has myriad wireless capabilities. It supports up to 32 wireless zones, and you can even add up to 16 wireless keys without using up your wireless zone slots. In other words, while the keypad itself is wired, it's capable of working with all your wireless sensors, glass break detectors and motion detectors.

Keypad Overview

The DSC RFK5501 LCD Picture Icon Keypad (included) is designed to provide maximum protection while being simple enough for a child to use. It even features five programmable keys, allowing for one-button activation of the system's core functions.

These functions include:

  • Stay arming
  • Away arming
  • Door chime
  • Smoke detector reset
  • Quick exit

Additional Keypad Benefits

Most hardwired alarms require you to endure an often galling process each time you step out of the house. But with this keypad's QUICK-EXIT key, you can slip in and out at the click of a button. Just push the button one time and then open the door to grab the mail or let the dog out. This innovative keypad supports eight languages and global partition status.

  • Modern, slim-line landscape design
  • 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 is a self-contained, surface-mount, un-tampered dual tone interior siren that can alert you not only of potential burglar activity, but also of a potential fire (when used with a fire alarm system). 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 is mounted out of sight, in a basement or utility closet where it won't interfere with your home decor. The metal cabinet houses the electronics, fuses and backup battery, and acts as the central hub of your security system. Best of all, this control panel is extremely expandable, and as your needs become greater, you can easily upgrade your equipment without having to replace your existing kit. The control panel features 8 hardwire input zones and supports up to 8 keypads. You can also program up to 32 user codes and configure up to 4 separate partitions. In other words, you can easily attach additional keypads, motion sensors, glass break detectors, door contacts and even fire detection devices. You're in full control.

Having installed multiple alarm systems, this system is great. My friends have installed this system and have been very happy. To a person all have stated satisfaction have been possible because of the technial help by your staff especially Freedy who is number one on my list. Always friendly and always help full.

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.

This system is great, however, a RFK-5500 would be much better

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!

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.

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.
