DSC PK5516 8-ZONE LCD Keypad

Product Profile

Security at your Fingertips

PowerSeries high-quality, slim-profile keypads achieve a clean, unobtrusive look that homeowners welcome and installers will appreciate for their easy programming and installation. The keypads feature an input/output terminal that can be programmed to operate as a zone input, programmable output or as a low temperature sensor. The keypads also include adjustable backlit keys that address low-light situations and five programmable keys for simple one button activation of system functions. 

Easy To Use

To simplify usage, the keypads feature five programmable keys for easy one-button activation of system functions. The default tasks assigned to the five function keys are stay arming, away arming, door chime, smoke detector reset and quick exit. With the quick exit function there’s no need to disarm and rearm the system every time an occupant leaves the house or lets the dog out, for example.


The keypads’ integrated temperature sensor can be programmed to activate when room temperature dips below 43° F (6° C) and restores at 47° F (8° C). Built-in logic prevents the panel from cycling in and out of alarm mode during minor temperature fluctuations, helping to reduce false alarms.)

Wireless Convenience

RF versions of the keypads are available. They include all of the same features as their hardwired equivalents and are able to support 32 wireless zones and 16 wireless keys without taking up a wireless zone slot.
