For Immediate Release

Las Vegas, Nevada, Wednesday, April 2, 2008 – Drivers start your engines! DSC is revving up to showcase our hottest products at ISC WEST 2008. Experience the Speed of the Install with new PowerSeries 9047 Self-Contained Wireless Panel. Meet one of NASCAR’s finest Road Course Racers, Boris Said. Watch a real NASCAR pit crew in action. Try your skills at DSC’s PowerSeries 9047 Quick Install Contest!

NASCAR & DSC – No Rookies Here

Engineering, talent and speed are the perfect ingredients. Mixed together, you have one of the most popular sports of today – NASCAR. It’s the same recipe the folks at DSC have used to create the hottest security product on the market with the fastest installation time – the PowerSeries 9047 Self-Contained Wireless Panel. Even though the driver is the only person in the car on race day, NASCAR is truly a team sport. Engine builders, mechanics and engineers spend countless hours preparing the car before it heads on to the track. The DSC product development team works together in the same way. From product development, to product management to marketing and sales, the DSC team is made up of dedicated professionals, committed to designing and manufacturing products that work, when it matters most.

Boris Said

At speeds of almost 200 miles per hour with sharp corners and bumper to bumper traffic, NASCAR races are an adrenalin rush – for both the drivers and the spectators. And no one brings more excitement to the track than fan favourite Boris Said. With the quick feet and heel/toe technique as his trademark, Boris has conquered some on the most difficult tracks on the circuit. Boris will be at the DSC booth, signing autographs on the first two days of the ISC WEST show at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm.


Just like the quick install times for the PowerSeries 9047, the speed of a NASCAR Pit Crew is blinding.

Experience the speed of the Pit Stop on DSC’s very own NASCAR 9047 Ford Fusion. The pit crew will be performing every hour for the first two days of the show.

Product Showcase at the DSC Speedway, Booth #23001The following new products and solutions being launched at the show include:

The PowerSeries 9047 Self-Contained Wireless Panel – With DSC’s new PowerSeries 9047, installation time is significantly reduced when compared to traditional hybrid systems. Not only is the PowerSeries 9047 COMPATIBLE with all sensors and detectors, the system is fully UPGRADEABLE to 32 wireless zones and 2 hardwired zones. With a wireless range of 1148 feet, it is FLEXIBLE enough for a variety of applications.

The GS3060 Universal Wireless Alarm Communicator -- Powered by DSC’s legendary RELIABILITY and QUALITY, our GSM universal wireless communicator (GS3060) connects the alarm control panel to the GSM network and reports alarm signals directly to a central monitoring station. When used in a backup role, the communicator assesses the connection to the PSTN phone line, and if that has failed, it then connects to the GSM network to send an alarm signal to the monitoring station. In a primary role, the communicator simply sends the alarm transmission over the GSM network immediately. Whether used in its primary or backup role, the GS3060 has the FLEXIBILITY customers require.

PowerSeries 4.2 Software -- The new software release for PowerSeries control panels – v4.2 – makes installation quick with template programming for new users and a programming interface that experts will be familiar with. DSC control panels and PowerSeries v4.2 software is a winning combination that has been designed with commercial applications in mind. PowerSeries control panels have a proven reputation for providing the value and RELIABILITY that security professionals expect.

DSC Structured Cabling -- Today’s new homes and home renovation projects require the integration of audio, video, security, and other low-voltage systems. The backbone of any integrated home is the structured cabling system that makes it both possible and affordable. New DSC Structured Cabling, in partnership with Suttle, provides a fast, FLEXIBLE and clean distribution management solution for voice, data and video connections. DSC control panels with mounting plates have a modular design that provides both VERSATILITY and FLEXIBILITY in any application.

WS4979 Wireless Wall Plate -- The WS4979 features a slim design and is VERSATILE – fitting nicely on homeowners’ inside walls or other convenient locations. The WS4979 has all of the same functions as DSC’s WS4939 4-button wireless key and can be mounted or installed easily, at minimal cost. Users have more control and FLEXIBILITY with their security systems by operating their favorite keypad functions on WS4979 wall plates located at suitable or desired locations.These and other products will be presented at the DSC booth #23001 along with product presentations, seminars and so much more.

DSC designs and manufactures exceptional products that work when it matters most.
