In this tech tip, we’ll look at how to adjust the volume on a full message LCD keypad DSC Power Series and Power Series Security Alarm Monitoring Panel.  From time to time, trouble conditions may persist which cause the keypad to beep until the issue is resolved.  While this beeping is necessary to alert you to a potential issue, this can become an annoyance in a business or office with a commercial security alarm system.  All DSC keypads allow you to adjust the volume so that you can no longer hear these alerting beeps.  Please keep in mind that if the volume on the DSC Power Series Security Alarm Monitoring keypad is reduced completely, no sound will come from the keypad, including alarms, button pushes and door chimes.

  • Use the < and > keys to scroll through the various buzzer settings, and adjust to your preference. “0” will silence the DSC keypad.
