Greetings All,

I'm replacing an old DSC PC3000 panel with a DSC 1832 v4.6 panel.  Obviousl
y, I noticed some programming differences and am hoping to get some clarifi
cation from the group.  I originally installed the PC3000 and programmed it
 myself back in 1996 so I'm a little rusty here and looking for some help.  
 Here's my questions:

1. Do I have to use DSC's line of Smoke Detectors?  I currently have (2) Sy
stem Sensor 4 wire latching smokes model 2412's with a RM-1 end-of-line sup
ervision relay.  If I can still use the System Sensor smokes, any gotcha's  
with the programming for the smokes?

2. I will be using (2) PK5500ENG Keypads.  Do I have to assign each one to  
a specific Keypad Partition/Slot or can both be in slot8?

3. How many zone label characters can I use to describe the zones on the PK
5500?  I thought I read somewhere I could only have 14 characters.  However
, the marketing brochures tell me 32 characters.

4. Finally, has anyone used the EnvisaLink module to allow remote Internet  
access to Arm/Disarm/Check Status etc?  Is this hard to program or install  
as an add-on product?

Thanks in advance for your replies and assistance for this 2nd time DIY'er.

Regards

Jim,
Thank you for providing the link to the DIY forum. I have since registered  
and posted my questions there.  I started with this newsgroup first as it w
as what I had used back in 1996 to obtain info when setting up the PC3000.  
 Thanks again and best regards.

RHC: No, just decide if you need a delay versus instant transmission to the
 station

RHC: Yes, I have installed about 50 of them for both monitoring purposes as
 well as to give clients the smart phone features they wish. It's a superb  
unit. You will have to pay an unlock fee in order to change the address IP  
from their monitoring station to yours if you wish to use it for monitoring
 as well. Or you can use their monitoring services for about $9 a month. Th
ese folks at EyesOn are great to deal with and this is a superb product (oo
ps said that already...)
There is a fair learning curve with this equipment, but this is to be expec
ted.
