Rather you are replacing or installing the WT4911Bat (battery) in the WT4911 outdoor wireless siren, you must follow certain directions. Failure to follow instructions during this installation process may damage your battery and your siren may not work.
When dealing with this certain type of battery, it must go through a depassivation mode. The purpose of this is to pre-condition the battery so that it won’t drop below the minimum voltage of the device once a load has been applied. This is done by advancing the discharge past the point of the voltage dip.
Before connecting your battery in the DSC WT4911, please read and follow theses instructions:
- Hold the tamper switch down and plug in the battery (continue holding tamper)
- Continue to hold the tamper switch down for 10 seconds and then release
- Once the tamper switch is released, the strobe lights on the WT4911/WT8911 will flash different patterns to indicate that it is in depassivation mode.
- When depassivation is complete, the strobe lights will shut off and the siren will begin to beep three (3) times every five (5) seconds. (Note: It can take the unit up to 30 minutes to fully depassivate. If at the end of 30 minutes the unit could not depassivate the battery, the unit will stop trying and begin to beep once every (5) seconds. If this occurs, the battery should be replaced).
- When the system begins to beep 3 times every 5 seconds, then press and release the tamper switch on the unit. At this point, the WT4911/WT8911 should flash the strobe lights and beep six (6) times. The unit is now in the normal power up stage.
- The WT4911/WT8911 is now ready to be enrolled into your DSC Wireless Alarm Panel, or returned to service.
DSC places a depassivation sticker on all new WT4911 wireless siren that are manufactured. A pdf copy of the sticker can be seen Here.
The DSC PC4020NK MAXSYS 16-128 zone control panel with cabinet is DSC’s offering for commercial appliances. The system can handle access control, security, and automation.
This control starts out with 16 on-board hardwire zones and can be expanded up to 128 with zone expansion cards. It can also accommodate 1,500 user codes/cards making it easy for someone who runs an office building or a factory to keep track of the comings and goings of all of their employees.
Not only can the MAXSYS handle a lot of zones and users, but it can also be partitioned into 8 separate partitions giving the owner the capability to make 8 different sections of a building their own separate arming/disarming zones.
Keep track of events that have occurred over a period of time with the MAXSYS’s event log capable of holding up to 3000 log entries. This way you can go back and see who has armed and disarmed the system and what events have occurred while you may have been gone.
With added wireless capability, through a wireless receiver, you can also hit all those areas where running wire is not the best option. And with its full line of add-ons and expansion modules; there’s nothing that this bull of a system can’t do.
This is definitely a must have for anyone who has a large-scale outfit to protect!
The new Honeywell Lynx Touch L5100 is the upgrade to Honeywell’s Lynx Touch L5000 panel and it’s what a lot of people having been waiting for!
The newest upgrade in the Lynx family will let anyone use the absolute latest in security, home automation, and monitoring options.
The display on the L5100 has been upgraded to resemble the display of the Tuxedo keypad. It will display, upon connection to Total Connect, the weather in your local area.
The first feature that the new L5100 will let you have is the ability to add a full Z-Wave controller just like the one that is already built into Honeywell’s TUXEDO keypad by adding the L5100-ZWAVE Z-Wave® Control Communication Module. The L5100-ZWAVE will allow the L5100 to control the following:
- Up to three thermostats
- Four door locks
- 40 devices (lights, switches and lamp modules)
- 20 scenes
- 20 rules (event based actions)
- 20 schedules (time based actions)
One really cool function of the Z-Wave device is that if you have a Z-Wave lock; you can set the panel up to disarm when a user code is typed into the lock’s keypad. The L5100 will let you have the home automation features that you’ve been wanting with a great security system running behind it to protect your home and belongings.
Another one of the newest features of the upgraded Lynx Touch is the ability for the panel to communicate to a central station monitoring service over the 4G network. With the GSMVLP5-4G the panel can send signal over the world’s fastest wireless network so that your alarm condition get noticed quickly.
They are also have an Android device, the MID-7H, that will allow you to connect to the panel to check system status and control it. This all comes with Honeywell’s Total connect service. Unlike the functionality of some self-monitoring remote control and access you got if you bought their TUXEDO keypad; the L5100 is totally reliant on Total Connect for any remote control and access.
This is a very nice upgrade that Honeywell has made to the Lynx series and it’s just another way Honeywell is staying a step ahead of the pack in the alarm industry.
The DSC Impassa Self-contained Wireless Alarm System is DSC’s newest offering and is actually the new and improved version of DSC’s old 9047 model. Just like DSC’s 9047; the Impassa is in all-in-one unit, but that’s pretty much where the comparison ends!

The DSC PC5320 is a module that allows you to combine up to four DSC RF5132 wireless receivers. This comes in handy for big jobs such as a warehouse or a multi floor building.
The PC5320 should be used when the wireless transmitter is too far away from the receiver. Ideally, a PC5320 would be in the center location of a structure and as many as four wireless receiver’s going out from there in all directions.
DSC Power Series have some of the best wireless range at 1000 feet (open air) but, sometimes an area is just too big.
The DSC Alexor is the newest completely wireless system out on the market. The DSC Alexor is the only wireless system on the market today that has the main brain (control panel) separated from the Keypad. This feature makes this system the most secure system out on the market today. Why you ask? Now you don’t have to worry about purchasing a second keypad just so that you can hide your main system.
The DSC Alexor is the only wireless alarm system on the market that has a wireless indoor/outdoor siren with a built in strobe and temperature sensor. This makes things a lot easier for people who want a loud system. On any other wireless alarm system to reach the decibels this outdoor siren reaches you would have to add additional power supply and wire it back to the system or add a low-current draw wired siren.
The DSC Alexor has the capability to support 32 wireless zones. The definition of a zone on an alarm system is a door/window contact, a motion, a glass break, and other components are their own zone. This system also has the capability to use up to 4 additional wireless sirens be it the WT4901 2-Way Indoor wireless siren or the WT4911B indoor/outdoor wireless siren. You can do a combination of the two just not to exceed four total sirens. The DSC Alexor is very easy to program and easy to install. This system works well in homes or businesses.
