The DSC PowerG Wireless Arming Station is a nice addition for compatible security systems. It operates as a functional secondary keypad for the DSC Iotega and Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus Systems. The touchpad keypad is small and compact, making it very unobtrusive when installed on the wall.
Users who only need a secondary keypad for basic system functions will be satisfied with the DSC PowerG Wireless Arming Station. It has a 2x16 message display screen, automatic clock programming, multiple door chime sounds, temperature display, multi-language support (English, French, Spanish), five (5) preset function keys, arm/disarm capabilities, system and zone status displays, and the ability to bypass zones. The keypad measures 168mm x 122mm x 25mm. It uses four (4) AA batteries for power.
For communication with the panel, the DSC PowerG Wireless Arming Station Keypad uses 128-bit AES encryption protection. This ensures that all signals are extremely secure and unable to be hacked or taken over wirelessly. This is important for keeping your system safe and protected at all times. Like most other PowerG devices, the keypad has a signal range of up to 2,000 feet when used with the IQ Panel 2 Plus in open air with a direct line of sight.
Note: This keypad is not for a DSC PowerSeries Neo w/ added PowerG Transceiver. That keypad is called the DSC HS2LCDWF9. It can be found here.
Note: If you prefer a touchscreen keypad, there are other options available. The Iotega has the DSC Iotega Touchscreen Keypad. The IQ Panel 2 Plus has the Qolsys IQ Remote.
