The PC1832 panel features template programming for new users and a programming interface that experts will be familiar with. With a library of over 250 commonly used names in English, French and Spanish, label programming is now a snap with the PowerSeries PC1832 v4.6 panel. DIYer's can now assign a unique 3-digit code to display a full descriptive label (e.g., code 190 displays "Window"), avoiding time and mistakes with more conventional keypad entry. For additional customization, other pertinent details can also be added, such as the zone or floor to make it easy for the owner to identify faults (e.g., "Bedroom Window"). The PowerSeries PC1832 also features an independent end-of-line (EOL) configuration that makes installation faster than ever before. Each hardwired zone can be independently matched to the devices EOL configuration, reducing the time required to get a common EOL configuration across all security devices. Likewise, wireless device enrollment can be enrolled quick and easily. With the wireless device enrollment process, DIYer's are not required to manually program serial numbers or wireless attributes. Instead, enrollment is completed by confirming the confirm Electronic Serial Numbers (ESN), zone numbers and zone type through a series of user friendly screens.
This PowerSeries PC1832 hybrid TELCO phone/voip security system kit includes; hardwired control panel (PC1832NK), control panel battery (UB1250), power transformer (UB1640W), hybrid picture-icon keypad with 32-zone wireless receiver (RFK5501) and a TELCO telephone cord connector (TJ-8DUAL).
The PC1832 panel is equipped to send alarm signals over the TELCO traditional telephone network. Addionally, the DSC PowerSeries has 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 allow for acceptable alarm signal data communications. Unfortunatley, VoIP providers such as Vonage, Ooma or Magic Jack are not compatible for alarm monitoring. If you are going to use VoIP alarm monitoring, please make sure your VoIP provider is approved for transmitting alarm signals. 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 PC1832 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.
You may also choose to add an alternative internet (DSC Connect24 TL260R, Alula BAT-WIFI) or dual-path ethernet/cellular (Alarm.com ADC-SEM210-PS-AT, Alarm.com ADC-SEM210-PS-VZ, Alula BAT-LTE) alarm communicator to your PC1616 panel to eliminate your need of a phone line and achieve Alarm.com, Alula or Connect24 alarm monitoring services. With interactive alarm monitoring services (using the Alarm.com or Alula communicators) you can arm or disarm your system remotely, receive email/text message alerts, and set rules for monitoring your property.
