DSC, distributed locally by QSS, has released PowerSeries Neo, a new scalable commercial and residential line of intrusion detection solutions supported by a big range of sensors, including PIR cameras for video verification.

NEO is designed to be a flexible platform that leverages the capabilities of PowerG – the industry’s leading-edge wireless intrusion technology, according to DSC. PowerSeries Neo is a customizable system with a range of control panels supported by PowerG-enabled, easy to install wireless devices. 

At the core of the system are 4 control panels, ranging in capacity from 16 to 128 zones and 2 to 8 partitions. Each panel starts with 6 or 8 hardwired inputs, 2-4 hardwired outputs and PTSN communication onboard, with the capability for expansion, additional features and services. PowerSeries Neo offers a full range of optional cellular and/or IP communication methods in support of the industry’s transition away from traditional phone lines. 

Because it incorporates PowerG 2-way wireless communication, the system is able to hop between wireless frequency channels so that if one is jammed, it will move to a free frequency. This allows for seamless, reliable communication between the control panel and devices. In addition, PowerSeries Neo allows for devices to continuously measure the communication quality and automatically sets transmission power to the minimum required for reliable communication with the panel, thereby saving energy and battery life. Solid encryption technology offers an exceptionally high level of protection by guarding against digital attacks on the system. 

The PowerSeries Neo platform is also primed to reduce the incremental costs of false alarms by employing innovative, regionally-compliant alarm verification solutions such as visual verification, 2-way audio and sequential detection, while also offering additional RMR opportunities to dealers. WebSA, a professional end user application that manages multiple systems, gives the ability to manage, monitor and control the functionality of their PowerSeries Neo security system through the use of user-friendly, intuitive interfaces accessed with real-time dashboards.

Supporting PowerSeries NEO are more than a dozen new PowerG detectors, keys, sirens and related devices. Included in this group are the PG9904P wireless PowerG PIR motion detector, the PG9905 wireless PowerG temperature detector, the PG9916 wireless PowerG smoke and heat detector, the PG9924 wireless PowerG curtain PIR motion detector, the PG9926 wireless PowerG smoke detector, and the PG9934P wireless PowerG motion detector with integrated camera. All these detectors offer 128-bit AES encryption, high transmission ranges for reliable communication within up to a 2000 metres line-of-sight and TDMA synchronized communication technology to prevent message collision.

The camera on the PG9934P Wireless PowerG motion detector with integrated camera is activated upon movement when the detector is armed. Images are sent via the ethernet or cellular signal to a monitoring station where staff can view, verify and respond accordingly. The PG9934P is capable of operating in total darkness, making it the ideal tool for delivering visual alarm verification under any circumstance.

Also part of the PowerG series are the PG9938 wireless PowerG panic key and the PG9939 wireless PowerG 4-button key. The PG9938 is a portable personal protection device, while the 4-button model combines security system management, allowing users to arm and disarm the system or call for help. There are 2 sirens included in the series, the PG9911 wireless PowerG outdoor siren and the PG9901 wireless PowerG indoor siren. Both feature differentiated audible and visual alerts for fire, carbon monoxide, burglary and flood events.

The PG9975 wireless PowerG door/window contact provides perimeter protection when installed on common intrusion points such as doors and windows by reporting opening and closings to the security system. The PG9920 wireless PowerG repeater significantly extends the communication range between the alarm system and other PowerG devices, forwarding messages from these wireless PowerG devices to the control panel.

A robust platform with loads of features, PowerSeries Neo is designed to reduce operational costs for dealers and provide ultimate reliability for end users. PowerSeries Neo offers a variety of control panels, a full suite of compatible PowerG-enabled wireless devices to include a PIR motion detector with integrated camera, repeaters and glass break sensors and a complete line of expansion modules, protecting the investment and ensuring growth in the future.
