PowerSeries 64-Zone LCD Full-Message Keypad PK5500
PowerSeries 64-Zone LCD Full-Message Keypad PK5500 is a full message keypad for DSC Power series alarm systems. In addition to offering more display options compared to the PK5501, the PK5500 also makes installer programming of the alarm system much simpler.
DSC PowerSeries high-quality, slim-profile alarm keypads use advanced plastics technology to achieve a clean, unobtrusive look that homeowners welcome and installers will appreciate their easy programming and installation. The PK5500 keypad features an input/output terminal that can be programmed to operate as a zone input, programmable output or as a low-temperature sensor.
The DSC PowerSeries PK5500 keypad has an integrated temperature sensor that can be programmed to activate when room temperature dips below 43°F (6°C) and restores at 47°F (8°C). Built-in logic prevents the panel from cycling in and out of alarm mode during minor temperature fluctuations, helping to reduce false alarms.
The PowerSeries PK5500 alarm keypad does not provide support for wireless zones. If you want to upgrade your DSC PowerSeries security system with capability for up to 32 wireless zones and 16 wireless keyfobs, you should get the RFK5500 PowerSeries keypad.
