How Do I Add a DSC HS2TCHP Touchscreen Keypad to a DSC PowerSeries NEO?

You can add a DSC HS2TCHP Touchscreen Keypad to a DSC PowerSeries NEO by connecting it to the panel and then enrolling it using an existing keypad. The main menu will appear on the DSC HS2TCHP Keypad upon successful enrollment. The HS2TCHP can be auto-enrolled using an existing keypad.

Note: Up to eight (8) total keypads can be used on the DSC HS2016NK, DSC HS2032NK, and DSC HS2064NK PowerSeries NEO Systems. The 128-zone DSC HS2128NK can support up to 16. Remember to observe any power requirements and add an additional power supply if needed!

The first thing you will need to do with the DSC HS2TCHP is wire it to the DSC PowerSeries NEO Panel. The keypad can connect to the same four (4) wired terminals as any other hardwired keypad for the system. You will want to power down the panel before making the connections. You can power the panel back on after the connections are made. When the keypad powers on, it will load to the screen shown below if it hasn't yet been enrolled. You will need to enroll the keypad using an existing push-button keypad that has already been set up.

Complete the following steps to add a DSC HS2TCHP Keypad to a DSC PowerSeries NEO System:

1. Power down the panel. Make sure you power down the panel before beginning. Disconnect the backup battery, and unplug the transformer.

2. Open the keypad. Open the keypad by inserting a flat head screwdriver into the two (2) slots at the keypad's bottom one at a time. You should be able to separate the back plate. Also remove the set screw if necessary.

3. Wire the keypad. The DSC HS2TCHP uses a 4-wire connection. We recommend using 18-4 wire. But if you have wire of a similar gauge, then it should still work just fine. Remember that you can use 2-conductor wire and double it up if you don't have any 4-conductor wire on hand. Just make sure to keep track of the colored-coded cables!

On the back of the DSC HS2TCHP, you will see terminals labeled R, B, Y, G. These are the terminals where you connect the wires. R is for red, B is for Black, Y is for Yellow, and G is for Green. You will need a flat head screw driver to make the connections. You will then need to connect the other ends of the wires to the panel. They go to the terminals marked RED, BLK, YEL, and GRN. Match the colors. Make sure the connections are nice and secure!

Note: Remember to run the wire through the keypad backplate before completing the connections!

4. Power on the panel. Power the panel back on by plugging the transformer back in and then reconnecting the backup battery.

5. Enroll the keypad. If the keypad has not yet been enrolled, then you will need to enroll it using an existing keypad. We will assume that you are using a push-button keypad for this task. Press [*] + [8] + [Installer Code] + [902] to access the appropriate menu. Remember that the default Installer Code is 5555. Then enter [000] to have any connected keypads auto-enrolled. If you wired the keypad successfully, then it should auto-enroll. The main system screen will then be displayed on the DSC HS2TCHP. You can exit programming on the push-button keypad by repeatedly pressing the [#] key.
