DSC iOtega Wireless DIY Security Panel

If you have an existing DSC hardwired or wireless security system you are part of large population of alarm system owners in the US.  There are millions of working DSC panels maintained by authorized security dealers throughout North America and farther.  These are rock solid systems and known to last with few problems for 15+ years.  We began installing DSC hardware in 1987 and still have some customers running their orginal equipment, though many have upgraded to cellular for alarm monitoring.

Whether you own a DSC hardwired system, a fully wireless, or a hybrid of the two SafeHomeCentral can monitor it!  What’s more even older DSC systems can be upgraded to use interactive services for remote arm and disarm and home automation from anywhere using your smartphone, tablet or PC.

RecommendedIf considering a move to cellular we have the new Alarm.com SEM210-PS for DSC PowerSeries and TL880LTVZ for NEO hardwired panels.  This awesome cellular communicator not only provides remote arming and disarming of your DSC system but also home automation control – lights, locks, thermostats all from one convenient app. Alarm.com provides the BEST overall user experience for DSC system owners.

For those with existing cellular communicators we also work with Connect24 (C24), SecureNet, Alula, and Telguard to easily connect your DSC panel to our UL central station.

What DSC Model Alarm System Do You Have?

DSC markets their control panels and systems under various names.  Most dealers (like us) sell the traditional, generic DSC branded versions.  By generic we mean that ANY authorized DSC dealer and central station can monitor the system.  Others are private labeled and may be locked down so a customer move to a competing dealer is difficult or costly.  ADT for example private labels many DSC hardwired and wireless panels and unfortunately uses a proprietary cellular communicator that only ADT can use.  The control panel and sensors are generally generic even if its labeled ADT and can be used by any dealer.  Only the cellular communicator would need to be replaced.

The first step in determing your DSC model is understanding if its a hardwired panel (meaning a hardwired control panel despite any wireless sensors) or a wireless all-in-one unit.  Take a look at the keypad pictures below as a start.  If hardwired there will be a brown metal enclosure located in a closet, basement, or attic which is the brains of the alarm system.  Simply open the door to the metal control panel and check the model number on the inside door where there is always a wiring diagram.

Wireless all-in-one systems have the “brains” integrated into the primary keypad.  You can identify the model by the keypad/controller pics below as well.

If in doubt, give us a call.

Alarm Monitoring Connectivity Options

Cellular Alarm Monitoring
IP Internet Alarm Monitoring
Landline Alarm Monitoring

SafeHomeCentral has all of the connectivity options you need, from POTS/VoIP dial-up, to broadband Internet/WIFI, to tamper-free cellular communication with our six redundant UL central stations.  Keep in mind POTS, VoIP, and IP Internet have the risk of intruder line tampering (cut) and the latter two have the additional issue of home LAN devices going offline during a power failure unless protected with backup battery.  Our cellular options have none of these risks.  Depending on control panel and communicator choice, we have AT&T and Verizon 4G LTE cellular options available. 

3G WarningTake note existing Verizon 3G CDMA and AT&T 3G GSM communicators can no longer be registered with cellular carriers.  If currently activated they will continue to work until the 3G networks begin to be shutdown in 2020 but they can not be reregistered with a new security dealer as of June 2019.  Only 4G LTE cellular communicators can be registered with carriers today.

Land lines in homes are rapidly disappearing because of the high cost to maintain a phone line when frankly everyone in the home has a cell phone in their pocket.  Many alarm owners have kept this obsolete communication medium in their home just for their alarm system.  Eliminating your $40+ POTS line and switching to celluar monitoring actually provides a significant monthly savings.  What’s more going cellular will increase your family’s security because landlines are at risk of being cut by an intruder before they attempt a break-in to your home.

Using a landline via your Internet provider, also know as Voice over IP (VoIP) is not considered a reliable communication path by major alarm panel manufacturers and central stations.  This is because VoIP is designed to work with analog voice communication, not digital signalling which your alarm panel will use to send signals to the central station.  While we have many customers successfully using VoIP it really depends on what provider you use in your area.  We do not recommend its use and will require additional testing to make sure the signals are correctly being received by the central station receivers on a consistent basis.

Some older DSC panels may be able to use current IP Internet or cellular communicators for alarm monitoring service but may not allow remote dealer control panel programming.  Nevertheless we can still remote program all DSC compatible communicators!  Remote programming of control panels is generally not required but offered as a free service if user changes such as entry/exit delays is needed.

Very old but working DSC hardwired panels may not be compatible with DSC cellular communicators at all but can still use a universal cellular communicator such as the Telguard TG-1 Express.  It essentially fools the alarm panel into thinking it is still dialing out via a landline but in reality going through either the Verizon or ATT cell network.  All is not lost to save money!

If you choose to use landline or VoIP for central station alarm monitoring, any hardwired DSC panel is compatible.  Most manufactuers are moving away from dialup alarm signalling and DSC did not include a telephone dialer in their new iOtega wireless system for example.

Please note: Interactive services can only go through IP Internet or cellular connectivity, not landline/VoIP.

5 thoughts on “DSC Security System No Contract Alarm Monitoring From $8-95

    • Tim says:

      Hello James! Both plans are cellular non-interactive plans. You can easily add interactive services for remote contral of your system to any plan. Alarm.com has more features for the money even if non-interactive such as daily supervision of your cellular connection. Once you add interactive services however the differences between say Connect24 and Alarm.com is vast. To use Alarm.com however you will need an Alarm.com compatible communicator. If you don’t have one, we have them!

  1. Gary G. says:

    Replaced my Connect24 modem with an Alarm.com LTE version for my PS1616 and gained full remote control of my alarm system as well as home automation. Worth switching to Alarm.com with all the additional features. Saved $20/month too by switching to Safehomecental!

    • Chris says:

      Hello Keith! We routinely program and activate DSC iOtega panels regardless of where customers had purchased it. Its a shame iOtega does not have local programming capability but we can easily get you up and running with SecureNet when you are ready. We are available for alarm monitoring activations and programming 7 days a week. Great wireless panel with PowerG super range!
