I need help with basic programming of a DSC PowerSeries 1616
« on: February 19, 2010, 02:48:47 PM »
I have purchased a DSC PowerSeries 1616 kit that includes the following:

(1) Power1616Alarm Control Panel
(1) Fixed message LCD keypad with integrated wireless receiver (RFK5501)
(1) Wireless PIR motion detector (WS4904)
(3) Wireless Universal Transmitters (WS4945)
(1) Wireless Keyfob (WS4939)
(1) 16Volt 40VA plug-in transformer
(1) 12V, 4Ah rechargeable backup battery
(1) 15-Watt interior surface mount siren
(1) RJ-31X telephone jack and cord

As you can see, this system will be all wireless for now.

I have been trying to program this system for a couple of days now with no luck. I was going to set it back to defaults, but decided to get help here first. What basic programming is required before this system will work. I need a step by step guide on what to program first, second, third, etc. I have read over the manuals several times, but with no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have a programming worksheet?

If not find it and download one, the 1616/1632/1832 worksheets are all the same.

You'll start in section 001(zone definitions) and just go up from there.  IMO DSC is one of the easier panels to program.

Don't forget to change your devices to wireless in the attributes for each zone(101 for zone 1, 102 for 2, etc) Turning 8 on will make that zone wireless.  Section 804 will get you into your wireless programing for your ESN.  01-32 are your devices, 41-49 are your key ESNs and 61-69 are your key programming(61 = button programming for Key 41)

There's really too much to go through your going to have to look at a worksheet and go from there.

I finally got it working except for the WS4904P motion detector. It appears to be enrolled, but while the system is armed the motion detector will not set the alarm off.

Here is what I have done so far:

My Programming Steps for DSC Power series 1616 with keypad RFK5501

Set time and date    *6 1234 1 HHMM MMDDYY ##

No phone Line connected    *8 5555 015 7 ##  (not using phone line at this time)

Turn off Dialer(Communicator)    *8 5555 380 1

Zone Definitions  *8 5555 001 01 05 03 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ## (1-Delay1 2-Interior stay away 3-Instant)

Zone Attributes   *8 5555 101 8 # 102 8 # 103 8 ## (Turned on Wireless for zones 1, 2, 3)

Added wireless device serial numbers   *8 5555 804 01 WS4945 02 WS4904P 03 WS4945 ##

Added wireless key   *8 5555 804 41 638022 ##

Bell Cutoff Time  *8 5555 005 09 005 ## (5 minutes)

Entry/Exit delay times   *8 5555 005 01 030 030 030  ## (30 sec for delay 1&2 and Exit delay)


Did I miss something. Also, how do I access the event log.

Thanks
Tim

I think you got most of it, don't have a book with me, i'll see if I can find a PDF.

The DSC wireless motions have a battery saving feature.  There has to be no movement for 3 minutes before the MD will send a signal or the red light will show.  If you pull the MD off of the cradle for a few seconds and put it back on it will go into test mode, and the next 7 triggers will send signals.

Remember that if you arm it in away mode, or just use your code, the entry/exit zone must be opened and closed, otherwise interior zones are automatically bypassed.

If you use Contact ID on this panel, the programming manual available here is an outdated one and doesn't show section 382 which is in the new manual.  If an option isn't enabled in there, the three panics on the keypad won't report properly.  The newer DSC panels are better with Contact ID, unlike the older models where the report codes had to be entered manually.

I'm having trouble setting up motion where it is bypass during stay mode. I set up the zone definition this way. I think it's not right from looking at this thread:

zone definition
1) *8 (5555) 001 01 # = delay door entry
2) *8 (5555) 002 03 # = entry w/out delay instant ringing
3) *8 (5555) 003 03 # = entry w/out delay instant ringing
4) *8 (5555) 004 05 # = motion detect bypass w/ stay arming

Do I only do the first one "001" and set it up like Tim had it:
Zone Definitions  *8 5555 001 01 05 03 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ## (1-Delay1 2-Interior stay away 3-Instant)

Then do I set 002 as such: *8 (5555) 002 00## and same for 003 and 004?

Thank you for your  help.

that's exactly how you do it.

I've gotten 99% done but one issue. The delay entry door instantly sounds alarm without delay. I've set up the as follow:
*8 (5555) 101 make sure 8 is turn “on” ##
*8, (Installer's Code), 804, 01 – ESN SERIAL ##
*8 5555 001 01 03 03 05 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ##
*8 (install’s code), 202 ---- 1234 ##
*8 5555 005 01 030 030 030  ## (30 sec for delay 1&2 and Exit delay)
 Is there any further step I might have missed? I have three door and one motion. The first zone is the delay door. Everything else works fine. Just when I enter the delay door, alarm sounds immediately. Thanks for your help.

If this is happening while you are still in the test/experiment stage, you are probably running afoul of the "Audible Exit Fault" feature that DSC so helpfully enables by default.

If you open the entry/exit door within about 5 seconds of the exit delay timing out, it restarts the exit delay, and sounds the siren.

It's option 6 in programming location 013.

Either wait a minute, or turn the feature off.
