Hybrid intrusion: an intuitive and powerful solution with PowerSeries Neo

PowerSeries Neo from DSC is the next generation in alarm intrusion systems. By capturing the flexibility of a modular, hardwired system with the simplicity of a wide range of wireless devices and peripherals, PowerSeries Neo is a comprehensive and versatile hybrid intrusion alarm system suited for residential and small business structures through to scalable commercial applications.

The PowerSeries Neo line comes complete with four control panel options, ranging in capacity from 16 to 128 zones, to cater to a wide range of security system installations. Each panel fully integrates with the extensive selection of PowerG- enabled devices that have been created with simplicity of installation and user-friendliness in mind.

This wide range of devices leverage the most innovative technologies to capitalize on the convenience, versatility and superior capabilities offered by the 2-way wireless PowerG technology. This includes frequency hopping, adaptive path technology and 128-bit encryption.

Frequency hopping is an advanced technology that allows an intrusion device, such as a motion detector, to hop around channels within the specified frequency at a constant pace to find the clearest signal, making it difficult to disrupt because it's constantly moving. It takes a large frequency band, such as the 912-918 MHz band, and divides that into 50 channels, meaning less interference and increased robustness.

Adaptive path technology then finds the most efficient path to the intrusion panel so that, together with frequency hopping, devices always communicate optimally. With adaptive path technology, if the repeater or path in which the device is talking to the panel becomes blocked or disrupted, the device will automatically find the easiest and best path to speak with the panel without third-party troubleshooting. With a high transmission range, reliable wireless communication, transmission of images and audio clips can be achieved within / up to 2km / 2187 yards-line-of-sight. These technologies work together to ensure alarm events are not missed or misread, while extending the range of the signal, and the life of the battery in the system.

In addition, PowerSeries Neo's 128-bit encryption and frequency hopping adds another line of defense when it comes to privacy, particularly for commercial applications. 128-bit encryption is the same frequency technology used in Bluetooth technology and is part of 4G, the fourth generation of mobile telecommunications technology used in mobile devices.

All PowerSeries Neo devices require minimal installation time due to less wiring requirements, thereby allowing for installation of devices in even the most challenging areas. The broad selection of devices includes PowerG-enabled motion detectors, contacts, wireless keys and various life- safety devices such as smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. PowerSeries Neo LCD keypads features a simplified user interface that makes management of multiple partitions easy. With the global keypad menu, the keypad can be used to operate and check on the status of multiple partitions at the same time.

Designed with a scalable approach to cater to future needs, PowerSeries Neo also seamlessly integrates with a comprehensive remote service software suite to support innovative leading-edge features such as real-time dashboard and remote diagnostics.

A quick enroll process for devices displays a placement test directly on each device during installation. An LED light on each device provides indication to the installer the signal quality. Routine System Management Software (RSM) provides remote diagnostics on devices and systems to identify low-battery signals or other issues before rolling a truck. DLS5 downloading software enables the PowerSeries Neo control panel to upgrade firmware remotely.

In addition, two-way synchronous communication, or TDMA, is an ideal commercial solution because there is less noise and each device can communicate with the other without talking at the same time. This is particularly useful for applications with a significant number of devices. Ordered time slots for each device minimizes collisions between signals and allow for more devices in an application.

PowerSeries Neo provides users with the most comprehensive, hybrid intrusion alarm systems on the market today, meeting the needs of the most challenging security projects.
