hi di buyers this is michael from alarm grid and today i'm going to be showing you how to delete a zone from a dsc power series neo security system now the dsc power series neo it's a hardwired panel that um right out of the box it can only do hardwired zones but if you add a powerg transceiver then it will also be able to do wireless zones with wireless power g sensors so depending on the neo system that you have it will support either 16 32 64 or even up to 128 zones and when you need to open up a zone from for use with a different sensor or if you need to re-enroll a sensor then you would want to delete it from programming and then you can have that zone opened up and available for use with a different sensor or even the same sensor depending on what your application is um now the process for deleting a zone differs depending on whether this is a wireless zone or a hardwired zone um for a wireless zone you're actually deleting the sensor's serial number um it's unique serial number from programming so that way the sensor can be used with a different system and that the system knows that the wireless zone is open with a with a wired sensor it's a little bit different as you're not really enrolling a serial number with the system you're just setting the zone definition to that of a null zone so that way the system knows that that hardwired zone is not being used and it's available is open for use with a different system of course each hardwired zone will have an end-of-line resistor so the zones are closed so to speak but you're just changing the zone definition but uh today we have our vsc power series neosystem here with an alphanumeric keypad and i'm going to show you the process for both the deleting the wireless zone and for clearing the zone definition of a hardwired zone now we have a wireless sensor already enrolled with the system so we're going to go through the process of deleting it so we're at the main screen of our neo keypad and we're going to get into programming by pressing star eight and then it's going to ask us for our installer code which ours is at the default of five five five five and then we're going to enter the programming field of eight zero four and then we're going to enter the subfield of 901 and that's the option for deleting zones now we need to enter the three digit zone number of the zone that we want to delete and they're always expressed in three digits in our case the wireless sensor is on zone nine so that's zero zero nine and remember that will differ depending on what zone number you are using you're trying to delete from your neo system but you see in our case it displays the serial number for the sensor on the screen and we can confirm that that's the one that we want to delete so we're going to press the star key to go and delete it just like that it's wiped out the the sensor from programming this system no longer acknowledges that sensor it's been deleted and you'll see if i select this zone again i'll get the error tone and it'll say that it doesn't exist and i'll show that right now by pressing the star button there we go we got that that dsc error tone of that command didn't work because the zone has already been successfully deleted so we're going to exit out of programming now by repeatedly pressing the pound key so we're back at the main menu and that's that's how you would delete a wireless zone from a dsc power series neo system but i also want to show you how to clear the zone definition for a hardwired zone so to do that we're going to enter into programming star 8 star 8 then we're going to enter our default installer code which again ours is default 5 5 5 five and then we're going to enter the programming field zero zero one for zone definitions and we can scroll to any zone that we want whether it's wireless or hardwired but in our case we're working with the wired zones depending on your neo system those would either be zones zero zero one through zero zero six or some have two additional onboard zones so it would be zero zero one through zero zero eight and if you add one or more zone expanders then that will open up the door for more wired zones but in our case we're working with zero zero one through zero zero eight um but let's say we wanted to delete um zone five for instance let's let's just choose that one randomly we actually only have one wired zone set up with our neo system but i can show you the principle anyway so i'm going to press the star key to select this zone and you see that right now the zone definition is sent to 0 0 4 for interior so if we had a wired sensor set up in with that zone with zone five then it would behave as an interior zone but let's say we wanted to clear it out so it didn't have anything we would use the zone definition zero zero zero three zeros for null zone and you see if i go back to zone five um or it's it's changing the numbers here but uh let me let me back out a little bit and then select zone five you'll see that it's a null zone so that zone's not being recognized on the system it's an empty zone we still have the end-of-line resistor on the zone so that the system knows that it's closed but as far as the zone definition is is concerned this is a null and open zone on the neo system and we could set it with whatever we want but we're fine with that for now we'll confirm by pressing star and then we'll just exit out we don't we don't care if six is set to anything we just wanted to set five so we'll it back out to the main screen by repeatedly pressing the pound key and we're at the main screen and that's how you would uh clear the zone definition for a hardwired zone on the dsc power series neo security system so today we've covered the deleting a wireless zone from the neo system and wiping the zone definition for a hardwired zone if you have any questions about the dsc power series neo system or any of its accessories
