FAQs

Activating a “Panic” Alarm.

Your system may be programmed to allow a Panic alarm to be easily activated from any LCD Terminal without needing to Log on. A Panic Alarm is activated by simply pressing the [HELP] key three times in a row.

When a Panic alarm is activated, the resulting action will depend on how the optional “Panic” System Inputs are programmed for each of the LCD Terminals in the system. e.g. In some sites, Panic may be required to activate local Sirens and send a report to a Computer in a local Control Room. In other sites Panic may be treated as a “Silent” system alarm with a report sent to a remote monitoring station and no local action at all.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Consult your Installer to detemine if the Panic function is enabled and how it will operate in your system.

Press the [HELP] key at any LCD Terminal that has the Panic option enabled.

Help at Term #01
Enter your PIN c

Press the [HELP] key again within 60 seconds,

The display will prompt you to press the [HELP] key again if you want to activate the Panic alarm.

Press HELP
again for panic

Press the [HELP] key again within 10 seconds to activate the Panic alarm, OR Press the [END] key to abort if you pressed the Help key a second time accidentally.

The display may show an alarm message, or may simply return to the normal display depending on how the Panic alarm is processed.

Activating a “Duress” Alarm.

Your system may be programmed to allow a Duress alarm to be activated if you are being forced to perform operations at an LCD Terminal against your will.

Duress is activated by simply entering a special PIN Code instead of your normal PIN Code, when logging on to the LCD Terminal.

The resulting action will depend on how the system is programmed. Typically a “Silent” alarm is activated. (A discreet alarm report is sent to the remote monitoring station)

IMPORTANT NOTE: Consult your Installer:

 

  • To detemine if the Duress Code function is enabled in your system.
  • For details of any Duress Codes that will be used.
  • For details of how the Duress Code function will operate &/or report.

 

You may wish to use the space below to record the details of how your Duress Code system will operate. (NOTE: The Duress PIN Codes should not be recorded here).

 

Acknowledge an Alarm.

Alarm messages must be acknowledged by a User with the appropriate authority. These messages provide precise information of the type of alarm, the Area it has occurred in,and the Zone or System Input that generated the alarm.

NOTES:

  1. Keypad Lockout. If a Valid PIN code is not entered after a number of successive tries (usually 5 or 6), the LCD Terminal will display a “Too many tries” messageand will be totally locked out for a pre-determined period. (Normally 60 seconds)A message “Module Lockout: LCD Term. #??” will be logged in the Review memory and an alarm message “Too Many Tries” may be reported.
  2. Duress. If you are being forced to perform operations at an LCD Terminal against your will, your system may allow a Duress alarm to be activated by using a special PIN Code. See “Activating a Duress Alarm” for details.
  3. PIN discovered. When programming User Codes, if a User attempts to choose aPIN Code that already exists, the message, “This pin not allowed” is displayed. Whenever that PIN Code is now used, the LCD Terminal will display a warning:“Your pin has been discovered by another User. You should change you pin.”If you see this message, you can press [OK] to continue your operation, but make arrangements to have your PIN Code changed as soon as possible.

Turning Area/s OFF.

Once you have Logged on to a Terminal, and have seen the Area status with the “Push Off” or “Push On” message, you may perform the Area OFF or ON operations.

Remember: You have a limited time to turn an Area OFF once you have entered the Area (Usually 30-90 seconds). Ask the Installer for the Entry time used in your system.

By using AREA LISTS, you can turn OFF all the Areas in the List that you are allowed to control, with a single operation.

i.e. You can select any Area List in the system. However, only Areas that are in the Area List selected and are also in the Area List in your “User Type”, or your “Extra Area” will be turned Off.

–AREA / AREA LIST SELECTION.

You may select other Areas or Area Lists by using the [UP] and [DOWN] Arrow keys and/or the [DIGIT] keys to select the 1st letter that the Area name begins with.

e.g. A system has Areas named “Reception”, “R & D” and “Rodneys Office”.

  1. To select any of these Areas, press the [6 PQR] key until an Area starting with “R” is displayed.(You may need to press the key between 1 and 3times depending on other Area names in the system).
  2. If the Area that you require is not displayed, use the [DOWN] Arrow key to scroll through, and select, the other Areas starting with that letter. Note: Areas are sorted numerically after the 1st letter.

-Deferred Arming option.

In some applications the system is programmed so that certain User types may only turn the Area Off for a limited time. e.g. A cleaner or guard working outside normal working hours may only turn the Area Off for 60 minute intervals.(V2 or later only).

When these User types turn the Area Off, the display shows Area is Off with a “Defer timer” running.

At any stage during the defer time, the User can turn the Area Off again, to re-start the timer, (V3 or later only) or turn the Area back On and cancel the timer.

When the timer has only 250 seconds left to run,the LCD Terminal will beep every 2 seconds and display this warning. The User can still perform the Area Off or Area On operations during this warning period, but if no action is taken the Area will automatically turn On when the warning period expires.

Testing:   Menu Option 4

MENU + 4

Your system may be programmed with an option to allow Walk testing of specified Zones in particular Areas. (V3 or later only).

Testing simply involves activating the devices (usually detectors) and then allowing them to return to their normal state. e.g. Walk past movement detectors, open and close doors, press then release panic buttons, etc. The system can perform automatic testing on devices that are regularly activated by movement, etc., such as PIRs and Door Contacts. However, other types of Input devices, such as Glass-break, Smoke & Seismic detectors, Panic buttons, Window Contacts, etc. should also be tested on a regular basis. (e.g. Once every month).

NOTE: The additional Test Menu options shown in the Menu Flow chart at the rear of this manual are only accessible to the Installer. They provide a comprehensive range of Testing to assist with installation, commissioning and service of the system.

The display will prompt you to select an Area to Test.

Area to Test?   ^
Panic buttons

The [UP] and [DOWN] Arrows will search through the Area names alphabetically,

OR

Press the [DIGIT] key that represents the first letter of the name.(You may have to press the key 2 or 3times to obtain the required letter.) If the name you want is not displayed because of other names starting with the same letter, use the [DOWN] Arrow key to locate the name.

When the Area is selected, press the [OK] key to proceed.

If the maximum time allowed for Walk Testing expires, the test will be aborted and the display will return to the “Area to Test?” prompt. The maximum test time is programmed by the Installer for each Area. If the max. test time for an Area is set to zero, the maximum test time will then be 10 minutes.

After an initial test to check that all Zones are Sealed, the Walk Test commences. The display will update with a beep every few seconds to show any Zones that have not been tested. The following key functions are available while this display is shown, and may need to be used if any device fails to operate or cannot be tested:

Zone not Tested
Counter 3 Panic

To abort the Walk Test because a Zone is faulty and cannot be tested, press the [OK] key. A “Test Failed” message will be displayed. Press the [OK] key again to return to the “Area to Test?” prompt.

To abort the Walk Test, press the [END] key. The display will briefly show “Operation Aborted”, then return to the “Area to Test?” prompt.

To manually advance to the next untested Zone, press any other key.

When all the Zones have been tested and there are no faults, the “Test Passed” message is displayed.

Tested Passed
Push OK key

Push [OK] to exit the Walk Test mode and select another Area to Test.

Select another Area to test or Press the [END] key to exit and return to the normal display.

NOTE: For comprehensive testing of the system, including the reporting facilities, a procedure similar to the following is used on appropriate sites:

Arrange with the Central Monitoring Station for testing to be performed periodically in “real-life” conditions. This involves setting aside a period when all Areas in the system are turned ON, then activating all the Input Devices. A report from theCentral Station is then used to check that all devices activated were reported. This method also tests that Input processing and Reporting options have been programmed appropriately, and that the alarm reporting is occuring effectively.

 

Level Messages.

System operation is continuously monitored for problems and special conditions. A “Level Message” is displayed on one or more of the LCD Terminal/s if such a condition exists and will remain on the LCD display until the condition is rectified. * You will probably need the Installer to rectify any of the first 4 conditions.
