DSC IMPASSA Self-Contained 2-Way Wireless Security System

Product Profile

IMPASSA is the newest, next generation wireless security system from DSC. IMPASSA comes with the defense and offense needed to protect the ‘king’ – the home and homeowner - including:

  • An integrated HSPA (3G) cellular communicator.
  • The flexibility of a distributed wireless system.
  • 2-way audio communication.

Defensive Strategy - Integrated Cellular Communicator

As any good chess player knows, looking many moves ahead is critical for a checkmate. As more homeowners transition away from traditional phone lines towards VoIP (Voice over IP) or mobile wireless phones for communication, IMPASSA delivers alternate communication configurations including:

  • HSPA (3G) Cellular communicator using the cellular network.
  • Label library.

In addition, IMPASSA includes a more traditional phone line communicator using the Plain Old Telephone Systems (POTS).

The Flexibility of a Distributed Wireless System

Because IMPASSA is a distributed wireless system, installers have the flexibility of positioning the panel away from the premise’s entry point. A WT5500 Wireless wire-free keypad can be installed near the entry point so that even if the premise is compromised, the main unit (the IMPASSA panel) cannot be located by the intruder and tampered with.

For additional protection, 2-way wireless sirens can be installed away from the IMPASSA alarm system to further camouflage and protect its location.

2-Way Audio Communication for Ultimate Peace of Mind

Sometimes even the ‘king’ needs advice, help or reassurance. IMPASSA delivers 2-way audio (VOX only or VOX and push-to-talk) alarm communication with the central monitoring station during alarm events for the homeowner’s peace of mind. With high-quality speakers and microphones, homeowners can easily talk directly to the central monitoring station as needed.
