Before attempting to import DLS 2002 accounts, please note the following:

  • A) DLS 5 will only import accounts with compatible panel types: PC1616, 1832 and 1864 V4.1 and up and SCW9047.
  • B) DLS 5 will not import any accounts with the same account name as an existing account in DLS 5.
  • C) DLS 5 will not import any account that DLS 2002 is not currently seeing (due to the accounts not added to DLS 2002 by using the “connect to folder” option, or if the DLS 2002 cannot open an account due to the security stamp being incorrect).
