Security & Fire Protection Systems/DSC intercom station replacement

Question
Hi Dave,
We've got the DSC Power 832 system with intercom expansion.  I'd like to add another intercom station (5901 A 1 )in an additional room but I cannot locate a unit to buy anywhere.  Is there a replacement station for the old 5901 and if so, where can I get one?  Thanks, Kevin.

Answer
Hello Kevin and thanks for writing.

I seem to recall that DSC discontinued these intercom modules, but I may be wrong. I checked one of the larger alarm parts dealers here:

http://alarmsuperstore.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=316_328

...but don't see that module listed. They might be worth a call though on their toll-free number.

An online search shows two other possible sources that you can try (Tri-Ed and Harris Security):

http://www.harrissecurity.com/power832modules.html


If in fact you find that these are no longer available, the next option is to search eBay for a used one.

I hope that helps!

Best Regards,

Dave
