As of 2015, Digital Security Controls offers a wide variety of wired and wireless security systems for residential and commercial purposes. These systems can be fully customized to match the user's requirements using any of DSC's security system components, such as keypads, window and door sensors, motion detectors, monitoring stations and glass break detectors.
Although DSC manufactures security systems, these systems can also include life and property protection devices, such as smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, wireless flood detectors and low temperature sensors.
DSC breaks down their security systems into five different categories: Keypads and Control Devices, Perimeter Protection, Interior Protection, Life and Property Protection, and Communication and Monitoring. The keypad or control device is normally located near a well-used entrance and allows the user to arm and disarm the security system. Perimeter protection is the building's first line of defense, while the interior protection is the second line of defense, which includes items like glassbreak detectors and motion detectors. Most of DSC's motion detectors cannot be set off by animals weighing less than 60 pounds, allowing pets to move freely indoors while the security system is activated.
Found in 1979, DSC is a subsidiary of Tyco International. The company's equipment is manufactured at its two facilities in Italy and Canada.
