hi diy-ers this is michael from alarm grid and today i'm going to be showing you how to add a wireless zone to a dsc power series neo security system and when i say wireless zone i basically mean a power ge sensor a wireless power g sensor because those are the only wireless sensors that the dsc power series neo is capable of supporting but in order to use wireless power g sensors with your dsc power series neo security system you will need to add a power g transceiver now you have a couple of options options available in our case we have a dsc hs2 lcd rf9n keypad which is a great initial alphanumeric keypad for the system it includes a built-in powerg transceiver since it's an alphanumeric keypad you'll be able to use it for programming your system and the fact that it has that power g transceiver it will open up a bunch of possibilities for you to add wireless sensors instead of just restricting you to hardwired sensors that you would wire in with the system or an expansion module the other option is to use a dsc hsm 2 host 9 standalone transceiver module which can be a good option if you already have an alphanumeric keypad set up with the system and i also just want to briefly mention on powerg sensors in general they have a fantastic range with the neo it's actually two kilometers away from the power g transceiver in an open air environment now keep in mind that thick walls or large metal objects can reduce range so if you're having range issues there is a dse pg9920 powerg repeater which can effectively double the range so that's pretty useful um but when you're adding a wireless zone to your neo system you'll be using power g sensors so i'm going to go on to our keypad here and show you the process for enrolling a new wireless zone with your system we're going to start by entering um start 8 to get into programming and then we need to provide our installer code to gain access which ours is at the default five five five five and now we're asked to choose a programming field we're gonna choose programming field eight zero four and it gives us the option for auto enrollment we can confirm that by pressing the star key and now we need to auto enroll our sensors so we have our pg9914 motion detector here and just to remi just as a reminder different power g sensors use different methods for auto enrollment um so be sure to look up the installation manual for your power g sensor to see how it auto enrolls a lot of them just require you to insert a battery in this case we actually have to do an enrollment button which is there i'm going to turn it over here so you might be able to see it a bit easier and so we're going to insert our battery to power on the sensor and then we're going to press and hold the enrollment button until we get an orange led light and i inserted the battery backwards [Laughter] um yeah this was the proper way it goes um because i turned it around i wasn't paying attention there so uh we're gonna press and hold the enrollment button now and get the orange led light and there um it did recognize the serial number on the screen and so we're good to go we're going to confirm it by pressing the star key and now we're going to going to choose a zone number for the system it's going to automatically give you the first wireless zone available on the system in our case that's zone zero zero nine uh we're fine with that but if you wanted to enter in a different three digit zone number you could certainly do that but we're just going to confirm by pressing the star key and now we're choosing our zone definition since this is we'll call it an interior motion sensor we're fine with interior if we want to scroll between different options you can see them here if you aren't sure about zone definitions then refer to the dsc power series neo security system manual which will have a complete list of zone definitions remember this is how the system will respond when the sensor is faulted so it's very important that you get the proper zone definition and we're fine with zero zero four for an interior sensor so we'll press uh start to continue and now we're choosing partitions the neo is a multi-partition system you can scroll between different partitions using the arrow keys and you can toggle y for yes and n for no we want ours to be on yes for partition one and we want the others to be all no so we'll go with that and then in this case we press pound to continue not star because star is to toggle so we'll press pound to go to the next one and now we're programming um our zone label which is the name for the for the sensor that you're enrolling um in our case we have it set to better motion um you can use the arrow keys to move the cursor at the bottom to different options uh we're going to go and clear these out i want to briefly show you how to do that um so you get it under the letter that you want to clear and you press zero to delete it and see we're deleting the letters one by one uh we're getting rid of motion and we're gonna go back to bedroom here we're just gonna wipe it out completely so we can start with a fresh zone label and so to get started with your with a fresh zone label once once you have it completely cleared you can press the star key and then it will give you the option for word entry and you press star again now options uh 191 through 193 are actual words and options 194 through 238 are letters and symbols so i just recommend finding um the actual words that are close enough to what you you are looking for that meet your definition and then uh just setting it the way you want so uh how about we aim for uh kitchen motion let's let's go with that um so i'm gonna just ballpark it here and these are expressed in three digits so let's try 0 90 and see where that gets us that got us to heat um not not quite kitchen so let's try 110. lights so that's a little bit further than we want so let's let's backtrack a little bit and there i saw kitchen right there 104 so we have kitchen displayed it's option 104 we'll press star to confirm that and then we have kitchen here and we want to make it known that it's a motion sensor so we'll do another one and luckily i happen to remember the one for motion it's 125 and there so we have motion displayed there we press the star key to confirm and now we have kitchen motion it's exactly the way that we want it so once you have the zone label perfectly configured you can press the pound key to finish and then it'll have you enroll the next zone which we don't need to do that we're just going to press pound repeatedly to get back to the main screen and now our pg9914 is enrolled with our dsc power series neo security system so that's how you add a wireless zone to a dsc power series neo if you have any questions about the the neo system or about power g sensors or about alarm monitoring in general please send an email to support alarmgrid.com if you found this video
