Okay, it sounds like you have a later model than the only DSC panel I have handy. You _may_ have a PC1616, a PC1832, or a PC1864.

A picture is always helpful, or you could also search pictures...

That's correct: When you have a built-in siren driver, you need only the speaker(s).

The most important rating on a speaker is its resistance, usually 4 to 8 Ohms, and the thing to watch for is...

Good job on doing a reset to factory default values. You were going to have to do that anyway, without the codes to the system.

The next thing you need is to find the model number of your...

Those are two "quad" (quadruple,or 4-wire) cables. It helps to differentiate wires (single conductors) from cables (multiple conductors in the same insulating sheathing).

A 951WG-WH switch is a closed-loop switch: "NC" in alarm jargon.

RickDel has the right switches, as far as "NO/NC" is concerned. I don't think there's a pro on this forum that hasn't used a...

The good news is that it looks like much of it is hardwired. The hardwiring in an alarm system never becomes obsolete and is compatible with all professional-grade systems, old and new. I...

The Tuxedo Touch (or any AUI Touchpad) is something of a power hog. You don't have to add many other devices to overrun your panel's aux power budget. You didn't mention how many _other_ powered...

Don't confuse number of zones with _zone numbers_. With the Honeywell/Ademco panels, zone _numbers_1 through 8 are reserved for the 6 or 8 hardwired on-board zones---even for panels like yours with...

No, an RF Reciever/Transceiver can't cause a power-cycle type malfunction; or at least it's extremely unlikely. Also, an RF failure has its own trouble code, so there's no indication of any RF...

No, an FA209RF is the First Alert version of a 6150RF Keypad, which is the keypad combined with 5883 M transceiver for your RF (wireless) devices. The RF keypad will obviously cost more. And yes,...

It actually sounds like your panel battery is dead and your panel is doing a power cycle every time the AC power hiccups.

I don't know what you mean by "stations". If you mean zones, like a door or window or motion sensor, you'd need to know if any of them are wireless. Do you have any devices, other than the Panel,...

No, you don't "must" use a 4190SN module. That's just an option if you need to put a non-polling loop motion sensor on a V-Plex polling loop. It can adapt any non-polling motion to the polling loop,...
