I have the installer code. It's a default one for DSC panels. Can I use this to arm/disarm system? Can I change it?

I've never tried arming/disarming using the installer code. It may be possible on the DSC systems. I know it can be done on the Ademco Vista panels. Why would you want to do that anyway? If you don't have the master user code then I think you can reset it with the installer code.

lilrags,

did you NOT see the previous pages?
He already got into programming using *8 + installer code and exited.

Also, * 8 + master code will not do anything.

Finally, the forum thread you linked was for a PC 505 which is a completely different system. Field 7 of the programming is NOT the same on the PC 1616. Please make sure when you google stuff for people that you have the right part number...

If you don't know exactly what you are talking about, please don't help.
This is how panels get blown up, people get hurt, or money gets lost. We don't want that to happen, right?
Thank you.
