You can download the installation manual here:

You'll just need to register, then on the page above scroll down to PK-55XX/RFK-55XX-433 Installation Manual and save it to your computer. It will save as a PDF file, so you'll need Adobe Reader or another PDF reader to view it.

I have a dsc power 832, and have replaced the battery, but i can not get it returned to the ready state as it shows " secure system before arming, and memory says -lid tamper", I have checked the plun

Hello Frank,

Great systems... Updatable, configurable...
even repairable... 832 is a "mature" system...
and the codes you get are not particularly helpful
if you don't have the ALARMS mapped.

There should be a map... (don't worry)
"-Lid" most likely is NOT the device you
are working on... Your ALARM condition
is FIRST on the warning list...

If you were given INSTALL notes with your system
you can use those... (instruction at bottom).

A simple area motion detector might also need a battery...
GLASS BREAK, SMOKE, HEAT, WATER... hard wired window devices...

(I'm guessing)... but FOR A FACT any device could
be mounted several ways... but control boxes
(at least in MY DAY had door & panel "TAMPERS")).

You obviously have a control panel
(you are getting system status "remarks)

It has been a long time since I have been around a DSC 832.
They are quite an excellent... and versatile security platform.

Lots of options and opportunities.

FIRST thing you will want to do is to inventory the system
to determine how many and what you are "monitoring..."

DSC PC5010 V2 0 Important Notice Page 4

Do look at this PDF ... (notice).
There are several manuals available
but before anyone can SERIOUSLY help you...
you need to walk the system and find all your devices.

Hope this helps

Could you maybe look for a brand and model on the system? Either on the keypad or on the system box (metal panel somewhere in the house)?

Then maybe Google the brand and model, looking for a manual?

How do i get the dsc pk5501 to call my phone when an alarm is activated? Is it even possible? also how do i change the exit delay time and delay time upon entry? thanks

The alarm panel will only transmit data over a phone line. It is intended to call a central station. You could put your phone number in the panel, but all you would hear when you answered would be sounds similar to a fax machine. There are external voice dialers available that you could trigger from your panel that would call you with a recording.

The link below has many installation manuals for different DSC panels including programming information for your entry/exit delays. The link will take you to the DSC page. You'll need to look for the model of your panel, not the PK5501 keypad.

Hope this helps.

Ac/lb light keeps flashing and home alarm beeps every 5 minutes or so and i cant get the light to go off

What model is your alarm system? The maker (Honeywell, Ademco, DSC, Napco, Caddx, ITI, GE, Moose, Morse, etc etc etc) and model number is usually inside the door of the control panel cabinet on a diagram. Numbers printed at the top of the control panel (NOT the keypad) circuit board is also helpful.

How do I add a code to my honeywell keypad 6160 for my pet sitter to use

Codes are programmed into your control panel, not your keypad(s). The 6160 keypad can be used on many different control panels, and how to program codes is different for each. First find your control panel in a beige metal cabinet and look at the model number. Then use your favorite search engine with the phrase "Ademco [control panel model number] user manual".
