This is a hardwired keypad meant to work with and control your DSC home security panels. The PK500ENG is virtually the same keypad as the PK5500, except the PK5500 uses symbols to label its function keys. The PK5500ENG, however, uses clear and easy-to-read English words for its function keys, along with a standard enlarged numerical keypad.

The English function key labels read as follows:

  • Stay
  • Away
  • Chime
  • Reset
  • Exit

This keypad will provide you with everything you need to control your system, and comes with a mounting hinge and surface mount for easy installation. The keypad's screen features an adjustable backlight for crystal clear viewing, while the unit itself has capabilities that include global partitioning status, 32-character programmable phrases, and optional intuitive clock programming. Impressively, this keypad is also capable of having its Input/Output terminals programmed to operate as a zone input, programmable output or as a low temperature sensor, making this one of the most versatile and expandable keypads on the market.

I purchased this LCD keypad as an upgrade to my security system at home. First of all, the shipment was received as stated which was two business days. The installation of the keypad was easy, but the programming of the new keypad took some time. The booklet that accompanies the keypad was vague in some of the programming, so luckily, I still had access to my old booklet which helped me complete all the programming. After the shipment was received, I received an email from my sales rep letting me know that if I had any problems at all, to please call their technical support hotline. I didn't have to use it this time, but it is nice to know that they care for their customers and respond aptly. I will definitely give Home Security my business for any future security needs.
