Key Features and Benefits

1. Pick from a solid selection to cater to your security needs.

The powerful lineup gives you excellent options so you can choose the best security solution for you. The system comes in four control panels that range in capacity from 16 to 128 zones and 47 to 94 user codes, accommodating areas of small homes and big businesses alike. These expansion-capable panels easily integrate with an array of PowerG wireless devices so you can add and customize accordingly. Also, its cellular and IP communication methods offer dependable protection even without traditional phone lines.

2. Go for seamless, secure, and energy-saving connection with PowerG technology.

PowerSeries Neo’s breakthrough features are hinged on the use of PowerG 2-way wireless communication to reduce costs for dealers and provide unparalleled reliability for end users, according to DSC. Its Multichannel, Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum technology enables the system to hop to another frequency channel, avoiding jammed lines and ensuring seamless and fast connection between the control panel and devices. Aside from optimized wireless routes that avoid interferences, this system also offers high transmission ranges so devices can communicate within up to 2km or 1.24 miles line-of-sight, sparing you the need to install additional repeaters for larger areas. For top notch security, you can rely on its high-level 128-bit AES encryption to deter digital attacks. The system does all of these plus prolong battery life up to eight years as its energy-efficient Adaptive Transmission Power adjusts accordingly to the system and sets transmission to the minimum working level.

3. Avoid the costs brought by false alarms with its innovative alarm verification.

PowerSeries Neo employs three alarm verification methods to discern real alarms from the false ones and to avoid unnecessary inconveniences caused by the latter. First, its visual verification activates PIR cameras once an alarm is set off. Placed in strategic places, the cameras will assess the concerned location. Second, its two-way audio alarm verification lets security service providers listen in on any sounds through built-in microphones. There is also a built-in speakerphone for the people in the secured area to communicate with security responders. Lastly, sequential verification enables the control panel to determine a real emergency based on criteria that can be personalized. Once a scenario in the secured premises turns out to be more than just a false alarm, the incident is then quickly forwarded to the appropriate authorities.

4. Enjoy utmost convenience with this system’s user-friendly features and applications.

While all of the above specifications may seem intimidating for most non-technical people, the great thing about PowerSeries Neo is it is created with simplicity in mind for its users. Take its WebSA application for instance. Thanks to the application’s user-friendly interface, real-time dashboards, and step-by-step instructions, users can easily manage and upgrade their PowerSeries Neo system.

5. Have a quick and easy DIY installation with its less wiring requirements.

Get the maximum protection from this top-of-the-line security system with minimal installation time. Not only do its less wiring demands make installations way faster, it also enables devices in spots in your home or business area that cannot be reached by wires.
