DSC Power832 Security System PC5016 System information

• Each person should know of a predetermined assembly point where everyone can be accounted
for i.e.: across the street or at a neighbour's house. Once everyone is out of the building, call the
Fire Department.
• A good plan emphasizes quick escape. Do not investigate or attempt to fight the fire, and do not
gather belongings or pets as this wastes valuable time. Once outside, do not re-enter the house.
Wait for the fire department.
• Write the fire escape plan down and rehearse it frequently so that should an emergency arise,
everyone will know what to do. Revise the plan as conditions change, such as the number of
people in the home, or if there are changes to the building's construction.
• Make sure your fire warning system is operational by conducting weekly tests (see “Fire Alarm
Operation” on page 14). If you are unsure about system operation, contact your installing dealer.
• We recommend that you contact your local fire department and request further information on fire
safety and escape planning. If available, have your local fire prevention officer conduct an inhouse fire safety inspection.
Maintenance
With normal use, the system requires minimum maintenance. The following points should be observed.
1. Do not wash the security station with a wet cloth. Light dusting with a slightly moistened cloth should
remove normal accumulations of dust.
2. The battery/ bell test is designed to determine battery condition. We recommended, however, that
the stand-by batteries be replaced every three years.
3. For other system devices such as smoke detectors, passive infrared, ultrasonic or microwave motion
detectors or glassbreak detectors, consult the respective manufacturer’s literature for testing and
maintenance.
About Your Security System
Your DSC Power832 Security System has been designed to provide you with the greatest possible
flexibility and convenience. Read this manual carefully and have your installer instruct you on your
system's operation and on which features have been implemented in your system. All users of this
system should be equally instructed in its use. Fill out the “System Information” page with all of you
zone information and access codes and store this manual in a safe place for future reference.
Fire Detection
This equipment is capable of monitoring fire detection devices such as smoke detectors and providing
a warning if a fire condition is detected. Good fire detection depends on having adequate number of
detectors placed in appropriate locations. Carefully review the Family Escape Planning guidelines in
this manual.
NOTE: Your installer must enable the fire detection portion of this equipment before it becomes
functional.
Testing
To insure that your system continues to function as intended, you must test your system weekly.
Please refer to “Testing Your System” on page 13 of this manual. If your system does not function
properly, call your installing company for service.
Monitoring
This system is capable of transmitting alarms, troubles and emergency information over telephone
lines to a monitoring station. If you inadvertently initiate an alarm, immediately call the monitoring
station to prevent an unnecessary response.
NOTE: The monitoring function must be enabled by the installer before it becomes functional.
General System Operation
Your security system is made up of a DSC Power832 control panel, one or more Power832 keypads
and various sensors and detectors. The control panel will be mounted out of the way in a utility closet
or in a basement. The metal cabinet contains the system electronics, fuses and stand-by battery.
There is normally no reason for anyone but the installer or service professional to have access to the
control panel.
All the keypads have an audible indicator and command entry keys. The LED keypads have a group
of zone and system status lights. The LCD keypad has an alphanumeric liquid crystal display (LCD).
The keypad is used to send commands to the system and to display the current system status. The
keypad(s) will be mounted in a convenient location inside the protected premises close to the entry/
exit door(s).
The security system has several zones of area protection and each of these zones will be connected
to one or more sensors (motion detectors, glassbreak detectors, door contacts, etc.). A sensor in
alarm will be indicated by the corresponding zone lights flashing on a LED keypad or by written
messages on the LCD keypad.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
16
A security system cannot prevent emergencies. It is only intended to alert you and – if included –
your monitoring station of an emergency situation. Security systems are generally very reliable
but they may not work under all conditions and they are not a substitute for prudent security
practices or life and property insurance. Your security system should be installed and serviced by
qualified security professionals who should instruct you on the level of protection that has been
provided and on system operations.

Household Fire Safety Audit
Most fires occur in the home. To minimize this danger, we recommend that a household fire safety
audit be conducted and a fire escape plan be developed.
1. Are all electrical appliances and outlets in a safe condition? Check for frayed cords, overloaded
lighting circuits, etc. If you are uncertain about the condition of your electrical appliances or
household service, have a professional evaluate these units.

Fire Escape Planning
There is often very little time between the detection of a fire and the time it becomes deadly. It is thus
very important that a family escape plan be developed and rehearsed.
1. Every family member should participate in developing the escape plan.
2. Study the possible escape routes from each location within the house. Since many fires occur at
night, special attention should be given to the escape routes from sleeping quarters.
3. Escape from a bedroom must be possible without opening the interior door.
Consider the following when making your escape plans:
• Make sure that all perimeter doors and windows are easily opened. Ensure that they are not
painted shut, and that their locking mechanisms operate smoothly.
• If opening or using the exit is too difficult for children, the elderly or handicapped, plans for
rescue should be developed. This includes making sure that those who are to perform the rescue
can promptly hear the fire warning signal.
15
Door Chime Feature
The door chime feature is used, while the panel is disarmed, to provide a tone from the keypad each
time a door or window is opened or closed. The doors and windows which will provide this indication
are programmed by your installer.
To activate the door chime from an LED Keypad:

Alternate Arming Methods
Away Arming
Arming the system in the Away mode will have all interior zones and perimeter zones active. If motion
is detected in the interior zones, or if one of the perimeter zones is violated, the alarm sequence will
begin. To arm in the Away mode, enter your access code and exit the premises through a designated
Exit/Entry door. The system will recognize that occupants have left the premises. Once the exit delay
expires, the system will be fully armed.
Audible Exit Fault
In an attempt to reduce false alarms, the Audible Exit Fault is designed to notify you of an improper
exit when arming the system in the Away mode. In the event that you fail to exit the premises during
the allotted exit delay period, or if you do not securely close the Exit/Entry door, the system will notify
you that it was improperly armed in two ways: the keypad will emit one continuous beep and the bell or
siren will sound. If this occurs, you must re-enter the premises, enter your access code to disarm the
system, and then follow the arming procedure again, making sure to exit the premises in the proper
fashion.
Stay Arming
This feature, if enabled by your installer, will allow you to arm the perimeter zones while leaving the
interior zones inactive so that you can remain on the premises while the system is armed. When you
enter your security code to arm the system and do not exit the premises through a designated Exit/
Entry door, the system will arm in the Stay mode, automatically bypassing the interior zones.
The interior zones can be reactivated at any time by entering [✱][1] at any keypad. If you reactivate
the interior zones, be sure to only inhabit areas not covered by motion detectors. To access areas
protected by motion sensors, you must enter your security code and disarm the system.
Arming Without Entry Delay
If you wish to arm your system without the entry delay, enter [✱][9] then your access code. The Armed
light will flash as a reminder that the system is armed and has no entry delay. An entry through any
zone programmed as a delay zone will create an instant alarm.
Quick Arm
When the Quick Arm feature is enabled, the system may be armed by simply pressing [✱][0] instead of
your access code. Please note that pressing [✱][0] will only allow you to arm the system; to disarm,
you must enter a valid access code. Your installer will inform you if the Quick Arm feature has been
enabled on your system.
To view troubles from an LCD Keypad:

Disarming the System
Disarming from an LED Keypad:
Enter the premises through a designated Exit/Entry door; entering by any other door will sound an
immediate alarm. As soon as the Exit/Entry door is opened, the keypad will beep to indicate that the
system should be disarmed. Go to the keypad and enter your access code. If an error is made
entering the code, press the [#] key and enter your code again. As soon as the correct code is
entered, the Armed light will go out and the keypad will stop beeping.
The correct access code must be entered before the entry delay period expires. If a valid access
code is not entered during this time, the system will go into alarm. The entry delay time may be
changed by your installer.
If an alarm occurred while the system was armed, the Memory light and the zone light corresponding
to the zone which caused the alarm will flash for 30 seconds. After the 30 second period, the Memory
light and zone light will stop flashing and the panel will return to the Ready state. Pressing the [#] key
during the 30 second period will cancel the alarm memory display. To view other alarms, press [✱][3].
If a trouble was detected when the panel is disarmed, the Trouble light will turn ON (See “Viewing
Trouble Conditions” on page 12 to determine the source of the trouble.) Please note that troubles will
not display while the system is in the Alarm Memory Display mode.
Disarming from an LCD Keypad:
Upon entering through a designated Exit/Entry door, the keypad will beep and the entry delay will
commence, reminding you to disarm the system. The keypad will display the following message...
Enter your access code. If an error is made in entering the code, press the [#]

Zone Bypassing
The zone bypassing function is used when access is needed to part of the protected area while the
system is armed. Zones which are temporarily out of service due to damaged wiring or contacts may
be bypassed to allow system arming until repairs can be made.
Bypassed zones will not cause an alarm. Zones cannot be bypassed once the system is armed.
Bypassed zones are automatically cancelled each time the system is disarmed and must be reapplied
before the next arming.
NOTE: For security reasons, your installer may program the system to prevent you from
bypassing certain zones.
Bypassing zones reduces your security protection. If you are bypassing a zone due to damaged
wiring or contacts, please call a service technician immediately so that the problem can be
resolved and your system returned to proper working order.
Do not unintentionally bypass zones when you arm your system.
To bypass zones from an LED keypad:
Start with the system in the Ready state. Enter [✱][1][Zone number(s) to be bypassed].
Enter the zone number(s) as a double digit from 01 to 32. As each zone is bypassed, the corresponding
zone light will turn ON. If a zone is bypassed by mistake, press that zone number again and the zone
light will turn OFF, indicating that the zone is not bypassed. Press [#] to return to the Ready state.
