Power up performance

April 2011 Products

One of the most feature-rich entry level alarm systems on the market today, the DSC PC1808, has powered up its performance. As a result of a recent software upgrade, installers can now, by adding the PC5108 expander module to the keybus, upgrade the control panel to support 16 zones as opposed to the original eight.

The DSC PC1808 supports both wired and wireless applications. For the latter, all that is required is the installation of the RF5132-433 wireless receiver module, adding up to 32 wireless zones to the system.

Designed to give property owners maximum flexibility, the system boasts eight partitions. With 47 assignable user codes, up to eight keypads, 500 event logs, panic keys and an auto arm feature, the alarm system is not only ideal for homes but also larger environments such as the workplace. The control panel, with its four programmable outputs, can be used to activate other devices, such as video verification equipment that allows for the recording of events the moment a zone is triggered. GSM technology is ideal for use as a backup to a traditional PSTN phone line as it guarantees reliable, real-time communication.
