DSC PC1832 PowerSeries Hybrid Security System DIY Installation Notes:
To complete your DIY home security installation, plug in the PC1832 transformer into a standard wall outlet and connect the PC1832 to a phone jack with live service.

When designing your system, keep in mind that the DSC PC1832 PowerSeries hybrid security system supports up to (32) total zones with expansion modules but only supports (8) hardwired zones and (32) wireless zones without expansion. You should add DSC wired 8-zone expansion modules if you want to add more than (8) hardwired zones to your DSC PC1832 hybrid security system.

PowerSeries PC1832 VoIP or Phone Line Alarm Monitoring:

The DSC PC1832 PowerSeries hybrid security system comes equipped to send its alarm signals over a traditional phone line. The DSC PowerSeries hybrid security systems have also been proven to work reliably with certain VoIP providers. The recommended VoIP providers are:

  • Comcast Digital Voice
  • AT&T U-verse
  • Verizon FiOS
  • Time Warner Cable
  • Cablevision
  • Charter
  • Cox
  • Bright House Networks


All of these VoIP providers use an independent IP network which makes their service much more reliable than other popular VoIP providers such as Vonage, Ooma or Magic Jack. If you are going to use VoIP alarm monitoring, make sure your VoIP provider is on the above list.

If you have never had a monitored security system installed at your property, you will need to run a phone connection from a live phone jack to the alarm control panel. You also need to make sure your phone service has long distance turned on. If you have VoIP service, you need to make sure that the VoIP service is live at the jack you are plugging the alarm control panel into.

With the rise in cell phone use, more and more people are looking to save money by eliminating their traditional phone service. The PC1832 hybrid security system allows you to eliminate your monthly phone bill and still get low-cost professional alarm monitoring. You can upgrade the system with a Connect 24 cellular alarm communicator (GS2060) which would make the installation of the system easier as you wouldn't have to run a wire from your phone block to the PC1832 PowerSeries hybrid security system. The cellular alarm communicator sends your alarm signals over the cellular GSM network and you would no longer need traditional phone service to monitor your security system. Isn't it time you got connected? Save money and take control of your home security with GeoArm.
