hi diy-ers this is michael from alarm grid and today i'm going to be showing you how to add a dsc hs2 tc hp touch screen keypad to a dsc power series neo security system now the hs2 tc hp uh like i said it's a touchscreen keypad um so it adds full color menus as opposed to a touchpad keypad where you have a numeric keypad a touchscreen keypad can be more inviting for users who aren't necessarily familiar with security systems the full color display can be more inviting so a lot of people prefer to add these to their systems if they don't have a wireless all in one panel for so for a wired panel like the neo a touchscreen keypad can be a great way to make your system a bit more user friendly uh the one thing you do want to keep in mind with this keypad though it shouldn't be used as an initial keypad for programming your system you are going to want to have at least one wired alphanumeric keypad which we already have set up on our neo we're just simply adding a new keypad today so let's get right into it i have the keypad here and we've already done the wiring but i do want to show you uh just uh quickly um how to open up the keypad because you will have to do the wiring both at the keypad and at the panel um so the keypad has these two little notches here for getting into it but what i like to do i i just like kind of get in the middle and just kind of get it out on both sides right there well that didn't go too well but we'll get that in there just kind of pry it out like that and then it opens uh pretty easily and we have um these color coded connections here uh green yellow black and red um our wire has white instead of yellow so we're using white in place of yellow but otherwise just match the the letters so red black yellow or white and green and remember to run your wire through the back plate because otherwise you won't be able to close the keypad so we did that on ours our connection is already complete at the keypad so we're just going to be wiring at the panel and remember to always have your neo system powered down before you're doing any uh hardware changes so disconnect the backup battery and uh unplug the transformer uh we already did that so we have our wires here and we have an existing keypad um already in in the terminals but um we have our terminals loosened so we can just go and add this in so now we're going to begin uh adding the wires to the neo panel all right so we have our four wires uh that we're ready to go in here and we're just matching the colors here so we got red in the red terminal uh so we did our four wire connection same location as our previous keypad uh just a reminder we used a 22 gauge four conductor wire 22 ag if you have 18 ag wire 18 gauge wire that should work fine as well really whatever you have lying around should work fine um just remember to get the colors matching at the keypad and the panel um the colors aren't necessarily important themselves just as long as everything's matching but it is a good idea to just stay organized red black yellow or white and green that's how we have our setup so now we're going to go and power on our neo system we're going to connect the transformer and we're just going to plug in the backup battery okay uh so we have our neo system powered back on you can see our keypad's lit up move our hardwired motion sensor out of the way so hopefully it's not giving us trouble conditions um but uh we'll take a brief moment for this uh hardwired keypad to the touchscreen keypad to boot up so we're just gonna wait for it to load its screen okay so our keypad has um booted up you see that it's currently not enrolled with our system uh we're going to be doing our work on the the numeric keypad the alphanumeric keypad um for setting up the the new keypad um you will get some trouble conditions when you first power on the neo um we can take care of those later and we'll show them in a different video but um for now we're just going to show you how to get the keypad enrolled with the system um okay so uh the first thing you want to do you want to get into programming um so that's star 8 and then you enter the installer code and ours is at the default of five five five five and then we're gonna go to programming field nine zero two um for auto enrollment of new devices and you can confirm zero zero zero that is the one that is automatically displayed or you could press star in our case we entered zero zero zero but um you see that if you if you look at our touchscreen keypad now it is successfully enrolled within neo system and we can use it however we want if we wanted to arm or disarm from there i'll just show you a quick example if i wanted to do a stay arm then we we would just do our i believe the masterpiece it's one two three four actually get these mixed up lots of different systems here um so the master code is one two three four failed to arm because our zone isn't um our zones still faulted um but that's how you would arm but our keypad is enrolled with the system uh we can do other options here if i wanted to show the keypad mode we can actually use this um as a sort of console mode for controlling system i'll just show you getting into programming real quick uh star eight i guess the function's not available oh it's because i'm still in programming on this keypad that's why we have to exit out on the original keypad we have to we have to repeatedly press the pound key to get out of programming now it's ready to arm sorry about that so if you wanted to do a stay arm for your system arms day uh then you can click this button and you can enter in your your master code ours is at the default one two three four and then disarm one two three four um click up here to arm away same thing two three four and remember we have our uh master code at the default um if you change your master code which it's recommended that you do then you'll enter in whatever your master code is for valid user code um we can also show you some options here uh there is a keypad mode which is kind of like a console mode where you can do various settings um so that's how you can have it act as an alphanumeric keypad if you did want to do some programming remember for initial setup you do want to have an actual alphanumeric keypad so keep that in mind and that's how you add a hardwired touchscreen keypad to your dsc powerseries neo security system if you have any questions about the dsc power series neo or the hs2 tc hp touch screen keypad send an email to support alarmgrid.com you can also ask us about
