WARNING Please Read Carefully
Note
to
Installers
This warning contains vital information. As the only individual in contact
with system users, it is your responsibility to bring each item in this warning to the attention of the users of this system.
System
Failures
This system has been carefully designed to be as effective as possible. There
are circumstances, however, involving fire, burglary, or other types of emergencies where it may not provide protection. Any alarm system of any type
may be compromised deliberately or may fail to operate as expected for a
variety of reasons. Some but not all of these reasons may be:
Inadequate Installation
A security system must be installed properly in order to provide adequate
protection. Every installation should be evaluated by a security professional to ensure that all access points and areas are covered. Locks and
latches on windows and doors must be secure and operate as intended.
Windows, doors, walls, ceilings and other building materials must be of
sufficient strength and construction to provide the level of protection expected. A reevaluation must be done during and after any construction activity. An evaluation by the fire and/or police department is highly recommended if this service is available.
Criminal Knowledge
This system contains security features which were known to be effective at
the time of manufacture. It is possible for persons with criminal intent to
develop techniques which reduce the effectiveness of these features. It is
important that a security system be reviewed periodically to ensure that its
features remain effective and that it be updated or replaced if it is found that
it does not provide the protection expected.
Access by Intruders
Intruders may enter through an unprotected access point, circumvent a
sensing device, evade detection by moving through an area of insufficient coverage, disconnect a warning device, or interfere with or prevent the proper operation of the system.
Power Failure
Control units, intrusion detectors, smoke detectors and many other security
devices require an adequate power supply for proper operation. If a device
operates from batteries, it is possible for the batteries to fail. Even if the
batteries have not failed, they must be charged, in good condition and installed correctly. If a device operates only by AC power, any interruption,
however brief, will render that device inoperative while it does not have
power. Power interruptions of any length are often accompanied by voltage
fluctuations which may damage electronic equipment such as a security system. After a power interruption has occurred, immediately conduct a complete system test to ensure that the system operates as intended.
Failure of Replaceable Batteries
This system’s wireless transmitters have been designed to provide several
years of battery life under normal conditions. The expected battery life is a
function of the device environment, usage and type. Ambient conditions
such as high humidity, high or low temperatures, or large temperature fluctuations may reduce the expected battery life. While each transmitting device has a low battery monitor which identifies when the batteries need to
be replaced, this monitor may fail to operate as expected. Regular testing and
maintenance will keep the system in good operating condition.
Compromise of Radio Frequency (Wireless) Devices
Signals may not reach the receiver under all circumstances which could
include metal objects placed on or near the radio path or deliberate
jamming or other inadvertent radio signal interference.
System Users
A user may not be able to operate a panic or emergency switch possibly due
to permanent or temporary physical disability, inability to reach the device
in time, or unfamiliarity with the correct operation. It is important that all
system users be trained in the correct operation of the alarm system and that
they know how to respond when the system indicates an alarm.
Smoke Detectors
Smoke detectors that are a part of this system may not properly alert occupants
of a fire for a number of reasons, some of which follow. The smoke detectors may
have been improperly installed or positioned. Smoke may not be able to reach
the smoke detectors, such as when the fire is in a chimney, walls or roofs, or on
the other side of closed doors. Smoke detectors may not detect smoke from fires
on another level of the residence or building.
Every fire is different in the amount of smoke produced and the rate of burning. Smoke detectors cannot sense all types of fires equally well. Smoke
detectors may not provide timely warning of fires caused by carelessness or
safety hazards such as smoking in bed, violent explosions, escaping gas,
improper storage of flammable materials, overloaded electrical circuits, children playing with matches or arson.
Even if the smoke detector operates as intended, there may be circumstances
when there is insufficient warning to allow all occupants to escape in time to
avoid injury or death.
Motion Detectors
Motion detectors can only detect motion within the designated areas as
shown in their respective installation instructions. They cannot discriminate between intruders and intended occupants. Motion detectors do not
provide volumetric area protection. They have multiple beams of detection and motion can only be detected in unobstructed areas covered by
these beams. They cannot detect motion which occurs behind walls, ceilings, floor, closed doors, glass partitions, glass doors or windows. Any
type of tampering whether intentional or unintentional such as masking,
painting, or spraying of any material on the lenses, mirrors, windows or
any other part of the detection system will impair its proper operation.
Passive infrared motion detectors operate by sensing changes in temperature. However their effectiveness can be reduced when the ambient temperature rises near or above body temperature or if there are intentional or unintentional sources of heat in or near the detection area. Some of these heat
sources could be heaters, radiators, stoves, barbeques, fireplaces, sunlight,
steam vents, lighting and so on.
Warning Devices
Warning devices such as sirens, bells, horns, or strobes may not warn
people or waken someone sleeping if there is an intervening wall or door.
If warning devices are located on a different level of the residence or premise,
then it is less likely that the occupants will be alerted or awakened. Audible warning devices may be interfered with by other noise sources such
as stereos, radios, televisions, air conditioners or other appliances, or
passing traffic. Audible warning devices, however loud, may not be heard
by a hearing-impaired person.
Telephone Lines
If telephone lines are used to transmit alarms, they may be out of service or busy
for certain periods of time. Also an intruder may cut the telephone line or defeat
its operation by more sophisticated means which may be difficult to detect.
Insufficient Time
There may be circumstances when the system will operate as intended, yet the
occupants will not be protected from the emergency due to their inability to
respond to the warnings in a timely manner. If the system is monitored, the
response may not occur in time to protect the occupants or their belongings.
Component Failure
Although every effort has been made to make this system as reliable as possible,
the system may fail to function as intended due to the failure of a component.
Inadequate Testing
Most problems that would prevent an alarm system from operating as intended can be found by regular testing and maintenance. The complete system should be tested weekly and immediately after a break-in, an attempted
break-in, a fire, a storm, an earthquake, an accident, or any kind of construction activity inside or outside the premises. The testing should include all
sensing devices, keypads, consoles, alarm indicating devices and any other
operational devices that are part of the system.
Security and Insurance
Regardless of its capabilities, an alarm system is not a substitute for property or life insurance. An alarm system also is not a substitute for property
owners, renters, or other occupants to act prudently to prevent or minimize the harmful effects of an emergency situation.

Maintenance
With normal use, your system requires a minimum of maintenance. The following points should be observed:
1 Do not wash the keypad with a wet cloth, and do not use household cleaners, such as glass cleaners,
on the keypad. Light dusting with a cloth slightly dampened with plain water should remove normal
accumulations of dust.
2 The Bell Test is designed to test the condition of the back-up battery installed with your system. Even
with frequent testing, it is recommended that the back-up battery be replaced every three years.
Contact your installing company for information on replacing the battery.
3 For other system devices such as passive infrared, ultrasonic or microwave motion detectors,
glassbreak detectors and other detection devices, consult the manufacturer’s literature for testing,
cleaning and maintenance instructions.
Read this manual carefully before operating your security system. Have your installer instruct you on
system operation, and have your installer inform you of the features that have been enabled on your
system. All users of the system should be instructed in its use. Complete the System Information page and
store this manual in a safe place for future reference.
Test Your System Regularly
To ensure that your system continues to function as intended, it is important that you test your system
weekly. Refer to the “Testing Your System” section of this manual, and read and follow the instructions
carefully. If your system does not function properly or if you have any questions about testing your system,
call your installing company for service or assistance.
Important Notice
A security system cannot prevent emergencies. It is only intended to alert you and, if included,
a 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 inform you of the level of protection
that has been provided, and instruct you on system operations.
Glossary
Your DSC PC550 Security System has been designed to offer advanced security feature and simple,
straight-forward operation. Described here are some terms that are used throughout this manual to explain
the operation of your system.
Keypad: Your system features one or more PC500RK Keypads. The keypad is used to enter commands to
operate the system, and to view operating information about the system. Information about the system is
displayed on the Zone Lights, labelled 1 through 4. The keypad also features three System Status lights:
“Ready”, “Armed” and “System”. Commands are entered on the keypad by pressing one key at a time.
Master Code: The Master Code is a 4-digit code used to arm and disarm the system, to program Access Codes
and to bypass zones. Normally only one person should know the Master Code.
Access Codes: Three Access Codes are available to allow users to arm and disarm the system and to
bypass zones. Each person should keep their 4-digit Access Code secret to ensure system security.
Entry Delay: The Entry Delay is the period of time allowed for someone to enter the premises and disarm
the system.
Exit Delay: The Exit Delay is the period of time allowed for someone to leave the premises after they have
entered an Access Code to arm the system.
Entry-Exit Door or Zone: The Entry-Exit Door or Zone is the door or zone designated by your installer to
be used for entering and leaving the premises when the system is armed.
Zone: A Zone is an area that is protected by a security device. For example, a room protected by a motion
detector may be “Zone 1”, while a window protected by a magnetic contact may be “Zone 2”. Your
installer will inform you of where zones have been set up on your system.

BASIC OPERATION
CHANGING SYSTEM FEATURES
Arming Your System
Before arming the system, close all protected doors and windows, and stop movement in areas protected
by motion detectors. When all zones are closed, all of the Zone Lights on the keypad will be OFF, and the
“Ready” light will be ON.
Changing Access Codes
The PC550 features 4 programmable Access Codes. The first code is the Master Code, and the remaining
three codes are normal Access Codes.
To arm the system, enter a 4-digit Access Code. As each digit is entered, the keypad sounder will beep.
When the Access Code has been entered, the “Armed” light will come ON and the keypad will beep 6
times. If an incorrect Access Code is entered, the keypad will sound a single long tone. To correct a
mistake when entering a code, press the [#] Key and enter the Access Code again.
When the “Armed” light comes ON, leave the premises through the designated Entry-Exit door before the
Exit Delay expires. At the end of the Exit Delay, all lights on the keypad will be shut OFF except for the
“Armed” light - your system is now armed.
The factory setting for the Exit Delay is 120 seconds; your installer may change this time to suit your needs.
Refer to the “Arming Options” section of this manual for information on other arming functions.
Disarming Your System
Enter the premises through the designated Entry-Exit door. The keypad will sound a constant tone to
indicate that the system must be disarmed.
Go to the keypad and enter an Access Code. If an error is made entering the code, press the [#] Key and
enter the code again.
When a correct Access Code is entered, the “Armed” light will be shut OFF, and the sounder will be
silenced - your system is now disarmed.
An Access Code must be entered before the Entry Delay expires or an alarm will sound. The factory
setting for the Entry Delay is 30 seconds; your installer may change this time to suit your needs.
If an alarm occurred while the system was armed, the “System” light and the Zone Lights of the zones
that went into alarm will FLASH for two minutes. Press the [#] Key to cancel the flashing display and
return the keypad to the “Ready” mode. Refer to “Display Alarm Memory” for instructions on displaying
the zones that went into alarm.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you return to the premises and find that an alarm is in progress or that there
are alarms in memory, do not enter the premises as an intruder may be present. Go to a neighbour
and contact the local authorities from there.

Bypassing Zones
A “bypassed” zone will not cause an alarm. Zones may be bypassed to allow access to part of the
protected area while other zones are armed. For example, you could bypass the zone protecting your
living room. This would allow you to remain in the room, while the other zones on your system are armed.
∗
With the system disarmed, enter [ ][1][Access Code] to display bypassed zones. The Zone Lights
representing bypassed zones will come ON. Ensure that any zone displayed as being bypassed is
intentionally bypassed. Zone bypasses are automatically cancelled when the panel is disarmed.
To Bypass Zones:
Enter [ ][1][Access Code]; the “System” light will FLASH.
∗
Enter the number of the zone to be bypassed; the corresponding Zone Light will come ON to indicate that
the zone is bypassed. To remove a bypass, enter the zone number to shut its Zone Light OFF. When all
desired zones are bypassed, press the [#] Key to return to “Ready”.
When you arm your system, the zones you have indicated will now be bypassed. When arming the system
with bypassed zones, it is always a good idea to enter the [ ][1][Access Code] command to review the list
of bypassed zones before entering an Access Code to arm the system. After ensuring that the desired
zones are bypassed, press the [#] Key, and then enter an Access Code to arm the system.
∗
NOTE: Do not bypass fire zones.
Keypad Alarms
One type of alarm may be activated by pressing and holding a single key on the keypad. Your installer
will inform you of how the [P] key will operate on your system.
———–
Call for service if trouble
does not correct itself
Note that the keypad sounder will not beep if only the AC Failure trouble is present.
[P]
Press and hold the [P] Key for 2 seconds to generate a [P] Key alarm. The alarm may be
programmed as either silent or audible; your installer will inform you of how this alarm will
operate. If your installer has programmed this alarm to be audible, the keypad will sound a
series of short beeps once the system has accepted the alarm, and the siren will sound a
steady tone.
Utility Output Command
A special keypad command may be used to operate various devices connected to your security system.
To operate the Utility Output, enter [ ][7] on the keypad. When the command is entered, the keypad will
sound a single tone for 5 seconds, and the Utility Output will be activated for 5 seconds.

ARMING OPTIONS
PC500RK KEYPAD
At-Home Arming
At-Home Arming automatically bypasses the zones on your system programmed as Home-Away with
Delay, and also removes the Entry Delay from the Entry-Exit Zones. This feature allows you to arm the
system and remain on the premises. In addition, if any of the Entry-Exit doors are opened, an alarm will
sound instantly.
The “Ready” light will come ON when the
system is ready to be armed. When the
“Ready” light is OFF, there is an open zone
on the system. The zone must be closed or
bypassed before the system can be armed.
∗
To use At-Home Arming, enter [ ][9][Access Code] on the keypad. The “Armed” light will FLASH to
remind you that there is no Entry Delay on the Entry-Exit doors.
Home-Away Arming
Home-Away arming automatically bypasses the zones on your system programmed as Home Away with
Delay, and applies the Entry Delay to the Entry-Exit zones. For example, you could use this feature to arm
the system and remain on the premises. Another household member would still be able to enter the
premises through the Entry-Exit door without causing an alarm. When the Entry-Exit door is opened, an
Access Code would have to be entered to disarm the system.
To arm the system with Home-Away Arming, enter an Access Code and do not open the Entry-Exit door.
When the Exit Delay expires, the system will be armed with the Home-Away with Delay zones automatically
bypassed. Your Installer will inform you of which zones on your system have been defined as “HomeAway with Delay” zones.
Quick-Arm
The Quick-Arm feature allows you to enter [ ][0] to arm the system. This command is designed to allow
someone to arm the system without that person having to be provided with an Access Code. When [ ][0]
is entered, the Exit Delay will begin and the user may leave the premises through the Entry-Exit door. At the
end of the Exit Delay, the “Armed” light will come ON and the system will be fully armed.

WARNING Please Read Carefully
Note
to
Installers
This warning contains vital information. As the only individual in contact
with system users, it is your responsibility to bring each item in this warning to the attention of the users of this system.
System
Failures
This system has been carefully designed to be as effective as possible. There
are circumstances, however, involving fire, burglary, or other types of emergencies where it may not provide protection. Any alarm system of any type
may be compromised deliberately or may fail to operate as expected for a
variety of reasons. Some but not all of these reasons may be:
Inadequate Installation
A security system must be installed properly in order to provide adequate
protection. Every installation should be evaluated by a security professional to ensure that all access points and areas are covered. Locks and
latches on windows and doors must be secure and operate as intended.
Windows, doors, walls, ceilings and other building materials must be of
sufficient strength and construction to provide the level of protection expected. A reevaluation must be done during and after any construction activity. An evaluation by the fire and/or police department is highly recommended if this service is available.
Criminal Knowledge
This system contains security features which were known to be effective at
the time of manufacture. It is possible for persons with criminal intent to
develop techniques which reduce the effectiveness of these features. It is
important that a security system be reviewed periodically to ensure that its
features remain effective and that it be updated or replaced if it is found that
it does not provide the protection expected.
Access by Intruders
Intruders may enter through an unprotected access point, circumvent a
sensing device, evade detection by moving through an area of insufficient coverage, disconnect a warning device, or interfere with or prevent the proper operation of the system.
Power Failure
Control units, intrusion detectors, smoke detectors and many other security
devices require an adequate power supply for proper operation. If a device
operates from batteries, it is possible for the batteries to fail. Even if the
batteries have not failed, they must be charged, in good condition and installed correctly. If a device operates only by AC power, any interruption,
however brief, will render that device inoperative while it does not have
power. Power interruptions of any length are often accompanied by voltage
fluctuations which may damage electronic equipment such as a security system. After a power interruption has occurred, immediately conduct a complete system test to ensure that the system operates as intended.
Failure of Replaceable Batteries
This system’s wireless transmitters have been designed to provide several
years of battery life under normal conditions. The expected battery life is a
function of the device environment, usage and type. Ambient conditions
such as high humidity, high or low temperatures, or large temperature fluctuations may reduce the expected battery life. While each transmitting device has a low battery monitor which identifies when the batteries need to
be replaced, this monitor may fail to operate as expected. Regular testing and
maintenance will keep the system in good operating condition.
Compromise of Radio Frequency (Wireless) Devices
Signals may not reach the receiver under all circumstances which could
include metal objects placed on or near the radio path or deliberate
jamming or other inadvertent radio signal interference.
System Users
A user may not be able to operate a panic or emergency switch possibly due
to permanent or temporary physical disability, inability to reach the device
in time, or unfamiliarity with the correct operation. It is important that all
system users be trained in the correct operation of the alarm system and that
they know how to respond when the system indicates an alarm.
Smoke Detectors
Smoke detectors that are a part of this system may not properly alert occupants
of a fire for a number of reasons, some of which follow. The smoke detectors may
have been improperly installed or positioned. Smoke may not be able to reach
the smoke detectors, such as when the fire is in a chimney, walls or roofs, or on
the other side of closed doors. Smoke detectors may not detect smoke from fires
on another level of the residence or building.
Every fire is different in the amount of smoke produced and the rate of burning. Smoke detectors cannot sense all types of fires equally well. Smoke
detectors may not provide timely warning of fires caused by carelessness or
safety hazards such as smoking in bed, violent explosions, escaping gas,
improper storage of flammable materials, overloaded electrical circuits, children playing with matches or arson.
Even if the smoke detector operates as intended, there may be circumstances
when there is insufficient warning to allow all occupants to escape in time to
avoid injury or death.
Motion Detectors
Motion detectors can only detect motion within the designated areas as
shown in their respective installation instructions. They cannot discriminate between intruders and intended occupants. Motion detectors do not
provide volumetric area protection. They have multiple beams of detection and motion can only be detected in unobstructed areas covered by
these beams. They cannot detect motion which occurs behind walls, ceilings, floor, closed doors, glass partitions, glass doors or windows. Any
type of tampering whether intentional or unintentional such as masking,
painting, or spraying of any material on the lenses, mirrors, windows or
any other part of the detection system will impair its proper operation.
Passive infrared motion detectors operate by sensing changes in temperature. However their effectiveness can be reduced when the ambient temperature rises near or above body temperature or if there are intentional or unintentional sources of heat in or near the detection area. Some of these heat
sources could be heaters, radiators, stoves, barbeques, fireplaces, sunlight,
steam vents, lighting and so on.
Warning Devices
Warning devices such as sirens, bells, horns, or strobes may not warn
people or waken someone sleeping if there is an intervening wall or door.
If warning devices are located on a different level of the residence or premise,
then it is less likely that the occupants will be alerted or awakened. Audible warning devices may be interfered with by other noise sources such
as stereos, radios, televisions, air conditioners or other appliances, or
passing traffic. Audible warning devices, however loud, may not be heard
by a hearing-impaired person.
Telephone Lines
If telephone lines are used to transmit alarms, they may be out of service or busy
for certain periods of time. Also an intruder may cut the telephone line or defeat
its operation by more sophisticated means which may be difficult to detect.
Insufficient Time
There may be circumstances when the system will operate as intended, yet the
occupants will not be protected from the emergency due to their inability to
respond to the warnings in a timely manner. If the system is monitored, the
response may not occur in time to protect the occupants or their belongings.
Component Failure
Although every effort has been made to make this system as reliable as possible,
the system may fail to function as intended due to the failure of a component.
Inadequate Testing
Most problems that would prevent an alarm system from operating as intended can be found by regular testing and maintenance. The complete system should be tested weekly and immediately after a break-in, an attempted
break-in, a fire, a storm, an earthquake, an accident, or any kind of construction activity inside or outside the premises. The testing should include all
sensing devices, keypads, consoles, alarm indicating devices and any other
operational devices that are part of the system.
Security and Insurance
Regardless of its capabilities, an alarm system is not a substitute for property or life insurance. An alarm system also is not a substitute for property
owners, renters, or other occupants to act prudently to prevent or minimize the harmful effects of an emergency situation.
