Adding Wireless DSC CO via RF5132-433 receiver

My vendor's site says DSC's wireless CO detector (WS4913) requires DSC's wireless TR5164 2-way device. Are they possibly just promoting the newer, more capable wireless receiver for the 1832, or will the WS4913 CO detector works fine when enrolled via a RF5132-433 receiver?

The CO detector was originally made for he PC9155 Alexor system, which was a two-way transceiver. So, I suspect that you need the TR5164-433 for it to work correctly.

I didn't realise the CO detector didn't show up till Alexor. Very interesting. Also maybe explains why there isn't a wired version.

With the legal requirement in many jurisdictions now to have CO monitoring in residential premises, its sad that DSC didn't bring out a CO detector that integrates easily with all of the DSC legacy stuff out there. Whether its 632/832s or 1832s, my guess is many of those systems will have RF5132-433s attached (or RFK55xx keypads) if wireless functionality has been added vs TR5164-433s.

If DSC reads happens to read these forums -- don't forget folks... there's a lot of functioning DSC systems in use than won't be rip-and-replaced with Neo. Providing backwardly compatible products will ensure lots of continued sales!

Yes, it's compatible with the correct wireless receiver model.

Agreed - a deep dive in the documentation has the wireless 4913 CO detector showing up as a device that can communicate with the 2way TR5164 receiver. My (limited) observation is that 2 way 433Mhz receiver got added to the product line to allow wireless keypads to be used with PowerSeries panels. (??)

The interesting question is whether the WS4913 CO requires 2 way communication or whether it is one way like a smoke (and thus could be enrolled via a PC5132.) And maybe the wireless CO detector isn't listed in the PC5132 documentation because the PC5132-433 pre-dates the release of the 4913 CO detector and the TR5164 receiver?

I feel an experiment coming along!
