DSC IMPASSA self-contained 2-way wireless security system

Product Profile

The IMPASSA strategy: Detect. Defend. Defeat.

IMPASSA is the newest, next generation wireless security system from DSC. IMPASSA comes with the defense and offense needed to protect the ‘king’ – the home and homeowner - including:

  • An integrated HSPA (3G) cellular communicator for high speed, reliable and secure alarm communications.
  • The flexibility of a distributed approach that allows wireless devices to be located wherever needed for optimal protection. As easy as setting up a chessboard, installers can now deliver a full featured home security solution in minutes by easily enrolling a range of compatible wireless devices into the IMPASSA security system.

Defensive strategy - Integrated 3G cellular communicator

As any good chess player knows, looking many moves ahead is critical for a checkmate. As more
homeowners transition away from traditional phone lines towards VoIP (Voice over IP) or mobile wireless phones for communication, IMPASSA delivers an alternate communication path using the cellular network. In addition, IMPASSA includes a more traditional phone line communicator using the Plain Old Telephone Systems (POTS).

The IMPASSA integrated communicator uses proven 3G technology. This not only allows for faster data-transmission speeds, but provides a longer lifecycle as cellular providers begin to phase out their GSM (2G) networks. Just like a mobile phone, IMPASSA displays the cellular signal strength to help determine the optimal mounting position within the home. For the homeowner’s convenience, the real time clock updates the time and date via the cellular communicator.
