How do I add a new wireless device?

The GUI of the DSC Touch makes it very straightforward to program. Follow these simple steps and you should have no problems getting new devices added:

  1. Touch Settings and enter the installer code.
  2. Tap on the installation icon.
  3. From the Installation menu, touch Security Sensors.
  4. Then touch the Auto-learn Icon.
  5. Trip or tamper the device that you are adding to the system. The panel will chime and display the serial number of the device. Confirm that the number is correct and then touch OK.
  6. Next, you will select the sensor type, assign a name, choose a chime sound, select the sensor group, and turn voice prompts on or off. For a full list and definitions of sensor types and groups, see the manual starting on page 31. The name can be custom typed or chosen from a preset list. Voice annunciation is available for both options.
  7. Press ‘Save’ when finished. You will be back on the beginning screen for auto-learning sensors. You can either continue on to the next device or touch the Back key when finished. - Back To Top

 

 

 

How do I change the delay times?

The DSC Touch allows you to assign two sets of entry and exit delays: Normal and Long. Use the following steps to customize one or both sets of delays:>

  1. From the home screen, tap the Settings button and enter the installer code.
  2. Then go to Installation.
  3. From the Installation menu, touch the Timer icon.
  4. On the next screen you will see the two timers with the name, entry delay, and exit delay listed. Touch the pencil icon next to one of the names to edit that timer.
  5. Touch the entry delay time to change that delay to your desired length. Then touch ‘Next’ to bring up the exit delay. After entering in your exit delay touch ‘Done.’ Press the save icon to finish editing that delay.
  6. Repeat for the other timer or push Back to exit. - Back To Top

  2. Then go to Installation.
  3. In the Installation menu you will go to Upgrade Software.

Can I manually set the date and time?

As of version 1.6.2 you have to use the dealer code to access date and time under the system settings. So if you do not see it when using the installer code, try using the dealer code instead (2222).

  1. Go to Settings with the installer code (or dealer code).
  2. Then tap on System Settings.
  3. From there you should see Date & Time. Go there.
  4. You can then select Set Date and/or Set Time and change them as needed. - Back To Top
