How do I change the DSC 1616, 1832, and 1864 master code?


The master code is used to make day to day changes such as managing access codes or changing the time and date. It can also be used to arm and disarm any partition. Many people will only use the master code on their system. To change it you must have access to programming mode.

  1. Enter *8-installer code.
  2. Enter 007 to change the master code.
  3. Enter a unique 4 digit code. The system should beep 3 times and exit back out.
  4. Press # to exit programming mode.
