Get to Know all the Buttons and Sensors of Your DSC PC 2550 Alarm

When an American Alarm technician installs a DSC PC2550 alarm, you know that your home and everyone inside is going to be safe. One of the first things that you will notice about the system is that it is composed of a control panel, one of more keypads (depending on which model you have) and multiple detectors and sensors. Although everything may look a bit overwhelming, one of the many things that the DSC residential burglar alarm is known for is how user-friendly it is.

The control panel, which is a metal cabinet, is home to the system electronics, fuses and back-up battery. Keep in mind that the only person that typically has access to the control panel is the person who installed the system in your home. The keypad’s purpose is to relay commands to the system and show you what the current status is. According to the manual, keypads are usually mounted near exit-entry doors (think near the front door of your house).

Because DSC alarm monitoring systems, you’ll be glad to know that your system has up to eight zones of protection. Each of these zones have different sensors linked to them, such as motion detectors, glass break detectors and even vibration shock sensors. When any of these sensors are activated, a light on your keypad will illuminate.
