The DSC NEO-2032-PK-ENC-VZ is a 3-1 security system starter kit that includes a 32-zone DSC HS2032NK PowerSeries NEO System, a DSC HS2LCDRF9 N NEO Keypad w/ Integrated Wireless Transceiver, a Verizon LTE & IP Dual-Path Communicator, 3 PowerG Contacts, a PowerG Motion, and an LT-Cable.
The main highlight of this kit is the DSC HS2032NK PowerSeries NEO Panel. This is a powerful hardwired system that offers some great features. It is important to consider that this is the 32-zone model. When compared with other alarm systems, 32 zones is rather small. As a result, you will only want to use this system in smaller homes and businesses. You should also consider the fact that his panel only has eight (8) on-board terminals for hardwired zones. To use additional hardwired zones, you need one or more DSC HSM2108 Expansion Modules. Another strategy is to stick to eight or fewer hardwired zones, and use the rest with wireless PowerG Sensors.
PowerG Sensor support is a main reason why people get a complete DSC PowerSeries NEO System Kit. The support is made possible thanks to the DSC HS2LCDRF9 N NEO Keypad. This keypad has a built-in PowerG Wireless Transceiver that is used for communicating with PowerG Sensors. After you install the keypad and address it with the panel, you can start enrolling PowerG Sensors with the system. You will want to keep the 32 zone limit in mind when enrolling sensors with the system. Both hardwired sensors and PowerG Wireless Sensors count towards that limit. Many users prefer PowerG Sensors over hardwired sensors, as they are much easier to install. These wireless sensors also offer an impressive range of 2km away from the keypad with direct line of sight, as well as 128-bit AES encryption for enhanced wireless security. Bundled with this kit are three (3) PowerG PG9303 Conctacts and one (1) PowerG PG9914 Motion Sensor for to enroll and use.
Another important accessory is the DSC TL880LTVZ N Communicator. This is an Alarm.com Dual-Path Communicator that sends and receives signals across the Verizon LTE Network and through a hardwired ethernet connection. This communicator is what allows the system to work with Alarm.com. If you are not familiar with Alarm.com, it is an interactive monitoring and automation platform that enhances many security systems. You can use Alarm.com to arm/disarm your system, check current system status, control Z-Wave devices, and much more. All of this can be done from pretty much anywhere by using the Alarm.com Mobile App for Android and iOS devices. To get started, you will need a monitoring plan that includes access to the Alarm.com service.
Also included with this kit is the Honeywell LT-Cable. This makes it easy to provide power to the system with a compatible transformer (not included). You will still need to purchase a separate backup battery for the system. This is what keeps it running during electrical outages. It also prevents a continuous low-battery trouble condition from being displayed. Many users will use an UltraTech 1240 Battery for this purpose. If your system has a high power calculation, then a more powerful battery like the UltraTech 1270 might be needed instead. Keep in mind that the backup battery must be replaced every three (3) to five (5) years.
Note: No transformer is included with this system. We recommend purchasing the Honeywell 1361-GT Transformer separately, which will work fine with the DSC PowerSeries NEO Security System.
