DSC PowerSeries NEO options

I am looking at DSC PowerSeries NEO HS2064NK, reading the manual it appears it's able to support 433mhz sensors as well but only limited to 4? Is it possible to expand that?

TIA

That doesn't sound right. This alarm control supports up to 64 wireless devices.

I talked to alarm company that sells this alarm and they claim it can't support 433mhz. I am very confused now.

The NEO series uses a newer protocol called "Power G". The 433mhz devices are compatible with the older Power Series panels like the PC1616/1832/1864.

It's more confusing because they have both product lines currently available.

To be honest, I lost track (I'm primarily in the fire/life safety world, these days). Their official product sunset was March 2022: https://cms.dsc.com/download.php?t=1&id=26516

A lot of products like this went out of production when the post-pandemic chip shortages were really bad.

So if you need a new alarm control, then you have to use the NEO product line (and associated wireless devices).
