I moved into an existing house we moved in 18months ago that had a DSC PC580 controller pad with PC5508Z LED Keypad. I was able to plead to previous owners & obtained Master Code to system but don't have an Installer code. Ihave tried basic installer codes like 1234, 1555, 1500, 5555 but to no avail! I need help to get the DSC Installer Code Reset and reprogram the unit after the system default programming is restored.
The system has one wired Motion sensor, 6 external wire door contacts, a keypad, a classic wired Red Panic button in Master bedroom & a fire/bell siren. I don't find any end of line resistors installed on the controller pads. The unit is currently programmed & in working condition with a battery backup & phone connection over VOIP. The system is not serviced by monitoring and faults with trouble.
In order to expand more motion coverage, I decided to add motion sensors for more coverage. Since I don't want to drill & run wires, I chose to go wireless route, with receiver/keypad RF5501-403 and Wireless motion sensor WM/PIR F2-200. I replaced PC5508Z keypad with RF5501-403 keypad for a standard PC5132 receiver and an LCD5501Z keypad. I still need to install wireless PIR motion sensor but have been unable to program the RF5501-403 since I don't have the installer code. I would also like to add the PC5508Z LED keypad with Red Panic button in Master that has a 4strand unused wiring already run.
I read through several forum messages to read up on how to default the DSC controller pad & how to verify if infact unit could be reset. One such message points out:
Note: If a series of 10 clicks are heard from a relay on the printed
circuit board when applying power, it indicates that the board is
locked and cannot be defaulted.
When I power up with battery disconnected I hear about 5-6clicks from relay, not 10. So I would think it could be defaulted but I would need to know how to re-program the system.
I need to know if defaulting the system should be my best option and what steps I would need to re-program the system to current state and add all units including the new Wireless PIR/Wired Motion and add both keypads back. Any help you can provide would go long ways in helping re-program the system back up & get the unit working once I default the PC580.
I have not done programming of Controller pad and I'm not a security professional by no means. However, I have worked with some programming on Ademco 50P in previous house but that seemed much trivial than what DSC requires. I have tried going through Instruction Manual for PC580 but don't think I have sufficient info to reprogram and don't know what complications to expect.
Any help you can offer me in getting the DSC Installer Code & programming reset will be greatly appreciated!
