The DSC NEO-2032-PK10-ENC-VZ is a 10-1 system kit for those new to alarm monitoring. It includes a 32-zone DSC HS2032NK PowerSeries NEO, a DSC HS2LCDRF9 N NEO Keypad w/ Integrated Transceiver, a Verizon LTE & IP Dual-Path Communicator, 3 PowerG Contacts, a PowerG Motion, and an LT-Cable.
At the center of this kit is the DSC HS2032NK PowerSeries NEO Panel. Like all PowerSeries NEO Systems, this panel provides some great features like partitioning, programmable outputs, and more. But you need to understand that this is the 32-zone model. If you compare that to other systems, 32 zones is not very many. Additionally, this panel only has eight (8) on-board hardwired zone terminals. If you want to use additional hardwired zones, then you will need one or more DSC HSM2108 Expansion Modules. For that reason, many users will stick to eight or fewer hardwired sensors, and use the rest of the zones with PowerG Sensors.
Normally, a PowerSeries NEO Panel cannot support wireless PowerG Sensors right out of the box. The reason why this kit is able to is becuase of the DSC HS2LCDRF9 N NEO Keypad. This keypad has an integrated PowerG Transceiver, which allows it to send and receive signals with PowerG Sensors. Once you install the keypad and properly address it with the panel, you will then be able to start enrolling PowerG Sensors. Just make sure that you keep the 32-zone limit in mind. Wireless PowerG Sensors and hardwired sensors both count towards this limit. As wireless devices, PowerG Sensors are typically much easier to install than hardwired sensors. Users love PowerG Sensors for their impressive 2km wireless range with direct line of sight. These sensors also use 128-bit AES encryption, which makes them virtually impossible to hack or takeover wirelessly. We have included ten (10) PG9303 Contacts and one (1) PG9914 Motion Sensor for you to use with the panel.
This kit wouldn't be complete without the DSC TL880LTVZ N Communicator. This is an Alarm.com Dual-Path Communicator that works across Verizon LTE and IP. This communicator is what allows the system to obtain fast and reliable monitoring service, as well as continuous connectivity with the Alarm.com Servers. Just keep in mind that you will need a monitoring plan with access to Alarm.com to activate this communicator. Once your system is activated, you will be able to control it remotely using the Alarm.com platform. Alarm.com is great for arming and disarming, checking current system status, controlling Z-Wave devices, viewing ADC Cameras, and more. This communicator also doubles as a Z-Wave Plus Controller. This will allow you to start building a robust Z-Wave smart home network around the system.
We have also bundled a Honeywell LT-Cable with this kit. This cable makes it easy to connect the panel with the included power transformer. However, a backup battery is still needed. The backup battery is what keeps the system running during an electrical outage. It also prevents a continuous low-battery trouble condition from appearing. One of the most common batteries for this system is an UltraTech 1240. But if your system has a particularly large current draw, then you may need a more powerful backup battery, like the UltraTech 1270. Remember that any backup battery will need to be replaced every three (3) to five (5) years.
