Identify Your Control Panel
Your DSC Security System is made up of a DSC control panel, one or more keypads, and various sensors and detection. The control panel, which is a metal cabinet, will be mounted out of the way in a utility closet or in the basement. The metal cabinet contains the system electronics, and backup battery. There is normally no reason for anyone but the installer or service professional to have access to the control panel. Some alarm systems have two names, the Model Number and the Marketing Name. For example, the PC5010 (Model Number) is also known and the Power 832 (Marketing Name) which can be found on your control panel.
