Question about DSC Lcd-500 Security Station Compatible Pc2500 3000

Open Question

I recently bought a house with a DSC system in place. The control panel says it's a LCD-500. I don't have the security code or any manuals for it (the house was a probate sale and the previous owner had dementia). Is there a way to reset the entire system? To be honest, I'm pretty paranoid of the system going off on its own... I'd rather just get rid of it. what's the safest way to disconnect & shut it down?

How can I find the code number to reset the anti tamper box so as the alarm will work

The code is specific to your device and would ordinarily be known by the person that installed 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?

I have a DSC PTD1640u and it keeps "chirping" every minute or so. I do not know how to make it stop. It came with the house I bought, so I do not have any codes or the manual for it. Please...

The DSC PTD1640U is a power supply for a DSC alarm system. Is the power supply (wall transformer) actually chirping or is it the alarm panel? If its the wall transformer, jsut replace it. If it's the alarm panel, what you need to do is find the type of alarm panel you have. It's usually on the circuit board or panel cover. Then download a user manual for that panel, just google it. Then follow the instructions to reset it or remove the alarm fault.
