How to Use Event Memory – LED Keypad

Your system records important events, such as alarms, in Event Memory. You can review Event Memory to monitor the status of your system. As many as 500 events may be recorded, depending upon your system’s configuration.

Within Event Memory, your keypad’s zone LEDs light in patterns to identify different events. The table on the next pages shows the various patterns the keypad uses.

To Review Event Memory:

1. Press and hold the 5 [walk test] key for 2 seconds until you hear two beeps. Enter the master user code.

2. Press the BYPASS key until you see the following pattern of lit zone LEDs:

1  2 3 4 5 6 7 8

3. Press the HOME Key.

4. To view the oldest events first, press 1. To view the latest events first, press 4. The keypad beeps twice. For the next 15 seconds, the zone LEDs display the earliest or latest event.

5.Press 1 to view the next event, or 4 to view the previous event.

6. To exit, press the CANCEL key .

What Areas Do

The S5832 control panel allows you to divide (or “partition”) a building into as many as eight areas, regions that can be armed and disarmed individually. Designed primarily for commercial settings, areas can limit an individual’s access to portions of a building.

A building that is divided into areas may include a common area, an area most system users can arm and disarm. The first diagram shows how a building could be divided to include a common area.

Buildings may also be partitioned without a common area. As the second diagram shows, this setup works well for structures with tenant spaces, but no lobby or shared hallway.

Each system user is assigned rights to certain areas. Users can arm and disarm only those areas to which they have rights.

When a building is divided into areas, portions of the building can be independently armed and disarmed. In the case of the first building illustrated, an employee can work in the repair shop while the showroom, offices, and warehouse are armed. Similarly, in the case of the second illustration, the restaurant can remain open after the other shops are closed and armed.

Dividing a building into areas changes the following system functions:

1. Users have restricted access to system functions. A user with access to only one area cannot issue commands affecting other areas.

2. Keypads may respond differently, depending upon where they are located and how they are programmed. Your LED keypad is limited to handling information about its assigned area only.

How Areas Affect User Codes

As described below, some of the user code types function differently in a partitioned system.

Grand Master User Code. The grand master user can assign and change user codes, and may be able to arm and disarm the entire system. Only the grand master user and your installer can view and change the grand master user code.

Area Master User Code. Each area has its own master user. The area master user can make any user-controlled changes within a given area.

Area Basic User Code. Area basic users can disarm and may be able to arm, bypass, or make other changes within an area. Users can have rights to more than one area.

If your building is divided into areas, your system may also recognize one or more of these optional user code types:

Area Maid Code. Maid Days are assigned to each area, so if you need to change the Maid Days, you must make the changes for each area individually.

Kidwatch Code. Your system recognizes only one Kidwatch Code, regardless of how many areas are present. The Kidwatch Code is assigned to area 1.

Area Duress Code. One duress code can be assigned to each area.

Area Relay Code. One relay code can be assigned to each area.

Pre-Assigned Area User Numbers

As the table below shows, some user numbers are reserved for specific user types. For example, User 11 is the pre-assigned Kidwatch user number. If programmed, your system automatically restricts User 11 to the limited Kidwatch privileges.

When your system does not recognize a given user type, the user number functions like other non-reserved user numbers. If your building is not divided into areas, user codes reserved for areas do not apply. Also, if your building is divided into only two or three areas, codes reserved for the remaining areas do not apply.

Changing Area User Codes

In a system with multiple areas, an Area Master User can only change the codes of the users assigned to that area. If you attempt to change the code of a user when you do not have the right to do so, you hear an error tone.

How Areas Affect the System

If your building is divided into areas, your LED keypad is assigned to one area only. From the LED keypad, you can only make changes that affect that area alone. This is described in more detail below.

Arming and disarming. Your LED keypad can be used to arm and disarm its assigned area only. You cannot disarm other areas from the LED keypad.

Bypassing. You can use the LED keypad to bypass only those zones within the assigned area.

Obtaining other system information. From the LED keypad, you can get information about the zones within the assigned area only.

Canceling alarms. You can only cancel alarms occurring within the assigned area.

How the Arming Modes Differ

Your security system can be armed in a number of ways, to suit different situations. These modes are summarized below.

Full Arming: You cannot be inside the building when it is armed with full-arming. If sensors detect movement within a building, or at the building’s perimeter, an alarm sounds.

Home Arming (optional): You can be inside the building when it is armed with home-arming. If someone enters the building through a protected door, you must enter a user code, or an alarm sounds.

Instant Home-Arming (optional): You can be inside the building when it is armed with instant home-arming. If someone enters the building through a protected door, an alarm sounds instantly.

Automatic Arming (optional): Your system can be pre-programmed to arm and disarm at preset times and days. You cannot be inside the building when it is automatically armed.

Quick Arming Modes

If your system is programmed for quick arming, you do not need to enter your user code before arming begins.

Quick arming does not affect how your system behaves once it is armed. For example, there is no difference in the way a system armed with home-arming or quick home-arming protects you.

Exit Delay

An exit delay is the amount of time you have to exit and secure the building, once your security system begins to arm. These delays last from 20 to 255 seconds, depending upon how your system was programmed.

During the exit delay, the Arm LED blinks. The keypad may beep; if so, it beeps faster during the last ten seconds. If any zones are faulted (not ready to be armed), the corresponding zone LED lights and the Ready LED is off.

Full

No entry allowed ___

When your system is armed with full arming, both the perimeter and interior zones are armed. You are allowed a specific time to enter or exit the building before an alarm sounds. See Section 8 for the entry and exit delay settings programmed into your system.

Quick Full-Arming
If your system is programmed for quick fullarming, you do not need to enter a user code.

To Arm the System with Full Arming:

1. Make sure the Ready LED is lit. Enter your user code. Exit and secure the building.

To Arm the System with Quick Full Arming:

1. Press and hold the HOME [quick exit] key for 2 seconds until you hear two beeps. Exit the building.

To Home Arm the System:

1. Make sure the Ready LED is lit.

2. Press the HOME key and enter your user code. If your system is programmed with an exit delay, you can now leave. While the system is home-armed, the Arm LED is lit, and the interior LEDs blink.

To Arm the System with Quick Home-Arming:

1. Make sure the Ready LED is lit.

2. Press the HOME key. If your system is programmed with an exit delay, you can now leave.

Instant
Home-Arming     
Interior armed ___
Perimeter armed _X_
Exit allowed ___

No entry allowed _X_

With instant home-arming, an alarm sounds the instant a sensor on the building’s perimeter detects a problem. The interior sensors are not armed.

Before anyone can open a door or window, the system must first be disarmed.

To prevent false alarms, use instant home-arming only when you are sure no system user will open a protected door or window.

Quick Instant Home-Arming.
If your system is programmed for quick instant home-arming, you do not need to enter a user code.

To Arm the System with Instant Home-Arming

1. Make sure the Ready LED is lit.

2. Enter your user code, and press and hold the 9 [instant] key for 2 seconds until you hear two beeps. The keypad beeps twice. The Arm LED and the interior zone LEDs blink. Your system is immediately instant home-armed.

To Arm the System with Quick Instant Home-Arming

1. Press and hold the 9 [instant] key for 2 seconds until you hear two beeps. Your system is immediately instant home-armed.

Automatic (Timed)
Arming

No entry allowed ___

Your system can automatically arm itself at preset times of the day.

At two minutes and again at one minute before the Automatic Arming sequence begins, the siren sounds. Then, the exit delay begins. You must leave the building during the exit delay, or an alarm sounds.

You can postpone the Automatic Arming sequence by one hour. When the siren sounds two minutes before arming occurs, press the key CANCEL, then enter your user code.

You can change the days that Automatic Arming occurs by following the procedure to the right. To stop Automatic Arming, turn off all of the Automatic Arming days. To change the times that arming occurs, contact your installer.

To Change Automatic Arming Days:

1. Press and hold the 5 [walk test] key for 2 seconds until you hear two beeps. Enter the master user code.

2. Press the Bypass key six times until you see the following:

1  2 3 4 5 6 7 8

3. Press the HOME key. The zone LEDs light to indicate the days when Automatic Arming occurs. The zone 1 LED represents Sunday, etc. A lit LED means arming occurs on that day.

4. Press the number of the day(s) you wish to switch on or off. To exit, press the CANCEL key.

Arming With Not-Ready Zones

The zones in your system are not always ready to arm. For example, a zone would not be ready to arm if one of its sensors has been vandalized, needs service, or detects a potential alarm condition. Zones which are not ready to arm are referred to as not-ready zones.

Your system has been programmed to automatically handle notready zones in one of three ways described below.

Force Arming. With Force Arming, your system arms, even if some not-ready zones exist. All not-ready zones are ignored (bypassed), and therefore, not protected. Exception: Not-ready Day Buzzer or Day Bell zones must be manually bypassed before arming can occur. These are zones that cause a buzzer or bell to sound if they are faulted while the system is disarmed.

Chirp-Alert Arming. With Chirp Alert Arming, your system does not arm if a not-ready zone exists. At the end of the exit delay, your system’s sounders chirp. You must re-enter the building and enter a user code, or an alarm sounds. Then, you must either correct or manually bypass these zones before the system can be armed.

Goof-Proof Arming. With Goof-Proof Arming, the system does not arm if there are any not-ready exit zones (doors). Instead, an alarm sounds at the end of the exit delay. You must re-enter the building and correct the not-ready zones before arming can occur.

Optional Arming Features

Your system offers several optional arming features if installed, described below.

Extended Exit Delay.

This feature automatically resets the exit delay if you re-enter the building while the system is being armed. You may re-enter up to four times; each time, the exit delay is reset to its full value.

Keypad Lockout. Designed to prevent an intruder from guessing a user code, this option causes the system to slow down if a series of invalid user codes are entered. Before a new code can be entered, the user must wait through a delay. The delay lengthens as more invalid codes are entered. Depending upon your system’s programming, the keypad lockout may not affect arming.

Keyswitch Arming. This accessory (Sierra S5051 or equivalent) allows you to arm and/or disarm the system with a key. Follow the instructions provided with the switch.

Quick Exit. This option allows you to exit a home-armed building without disarming and re-arming. To start the exit delay, press and hold the Home [quick exit] key for 2 seconds until you hear two beeps. Then, enter your user code, and exit. (Depending upon your system’s programming, you may not need to enter your user code.)

Exit Termination. This option allows you to shorten the exit delay to the last five seconds by pressing a button connected to your keypad.

Automatic Home-Arming. Automatic Home-Arming allows you to remain inside a building while its perimeter sensors (such as doors and windows) are armed. Arming begins by entering your user code. If you exit the building during the exit delay, the system arms both the interior and perimeter zones (full arming). However, if you do not exit the building, the system automatically arms the perimeter zones only (home arming).

Canceling an Arming Sequence

Any arming command with an exit delay may be canceled before the system is armed. To cancel an arming sequence, enter your user code during the exit delay.

To Cancel an Arming Sequence:

1. Enter your user code.

Entry Delays

Similar to an exit delay, an entry delay is the time you are allowed to enter the building, walk to the keypad, and enter a user code before an alarm sounds. This delay lasts from 10 to 255 seconds, depending upon your system’s programming. The length of the delay may differ, depending on which door you use.

During the entry delay, the Arm LED blinks. The keypad may beep during the delay. If so, it buzzes during the last ten seconds.

How to Set the Calendar and Clock

If your system’s calendar or clock is incorrect, it could result in false alarms. Since many system functions are time-dependent, it is important to regularly adjust your system’s calendar and clock.

NOTE: Your LED keypad does not display the current date and time. Therefore, when you set the date and time, be sure to enter the numbers carefully.

Reset the calendar and clock after seasonal time changes, such as Daylight Savings Time. Also, even if your system has a backup battery, it is best to check the calendar and clock following a power failure.

NOTE: your system’s clock uses a 24-hour, or militarystyle, format. For example, in a 24-hour format, 1:00 p.m. is expressed as 13:00. When you enter the hours of the day, be sure to use this format. (In 24-hour time, midnight is 00:00 and noon is 12:00.)

To convert from 24-hour time to 12-hour time, subtract 12 hours from all times greater than 12:00; these are p.m. times.

To Set the Calendar and Clock:

1. Press and hold the 2 [clock] key for 2 seconds until you hear two beeps. Enter the master user code.

2. The zone 1 LED lights. (Some of the LEDs in the second row of Zone LEDs may also light; you do not need to pay attention to these lights.) Enter the day of the month, using two numbers. When done, press the HOME key.

3. The zone 2 LED lights. Enter the number of the month, using two numbers. (Enter “01” for January, etc.) When done, press the HOME key.

4. The zone 3 LED lights. Enter the number of the year, using two numbers. (Enter “98” for 1998, etc.) When done, press the HOME key.

5. The Zone 4 LED lights. Enter the hour of the day, using two numbers. Be sure to use a 24-hour format (see the note. When done, press the HOME key.

6. The zone 5 LED lights. Enter the minutes past the hour, using two numbers. When done, press the HOME key.

The system returns to its normal mode.

Understanding the Icon Messages

Your icon keypad communicates information by lighting the words and phrases in the icon display. The words that make up a message may be on different lines, or separated by other words.

For example, you may see the following message in your display:

004
NOT READYZONE #

This message indicates that Zone 4 is not ready to arm.

In this manual, you will see messages such as these presented on one line, such as this:

ZONE # NOT READY

Number symbols (“#”) substitute for the specific numeric information your system displays.

System Status Messages

The display of your icon keypad gives you information about the status of your system. If there is more than one condition to report, your display switches between the messages.

Below is a list of the types of messages you might see. On your display, the # symbol is replaced with the number of the zone (or zones) in question.

READY BYPASS ZONE #.The system is ready to be armed; however, the zone listed is bypassed, and therefore, not protected. If more than one zone is bypassed, the numbers of the zones are sequentially displayed.
NOT READY ZONE #.The system is not ready to be armed. The zone number listed is faulted. (The zone may be faulted if, for example, a door is ajar or a window is open.) If more than one zone is faulted, the numbers of the zones are sequentially displayed.
NOT READY TAMPER ZONE #.The system is not ready to be armed. The zone listed has been tampered with. If more than one zone has been tampered with, the numbers of the zones are sequentially displayed.
NOT READY TROUBLE ZONE #.A sensor in the zone number listed may need service.

Understanding the Lights (LEDs)

Your keypad has a number of LEDs that summarize the status of your security system. Each LED can convey several different messages by being on, off, or blinking. The illustration shows what messages the lights communicate.

LED Blink Rates
Slow: light blinks twice every three seconds
Fast: light blinks three times every two seconds
Uneven: light blinks for three seconds, then pauses for two seconds
Zone LEDsIf off,the zone is normal.
If on,a sensor in the zone detects a problem. (The zone is said to be faulted.)
If blinking fast,a sensor in the zone is signaling an alarm, or the zone’s sensor has been tampered with.
If blinking slowly,the zone is bypassed.
If blinking unevenly,a sensor in the zone may need service. (This is called a trouble zone.)
Power LEDIf on,the system’s power supply is normal.
If off,the keypad is drawing power from the battery.
If blinking slowly,the battery is low (call for service).
Ready LEDIf on,the system can be armed.
If off,a problem exists which may prevent arming.
Arm LEDIf on,the system is armed.
If off,the system is disarmed.
If blinking fast,the system is about to arm; leave the building.
If blinking slowly,you have time to cancel an alarm, before it sounds.
If blinking unevenly, system is armed with instant arming.
Service LEDIf on,a system component is malfunctioning and may need service.
If off,all system components are normal.
If all of the LEDs are blinking, enter your user code.

How to Walk-Test the System

A walk-test allows you to test your system’s functions without causing an alarm. You should conduct a walk-test once a week.

The first step of a walk-test is to place your system in walktest mode. Then, walk in front of motion sensors, and open protected doors and windows. Each time a sensor detects your presence, the keypad beeps, and lights the LED of the most recently faulted zone in its display.

If your system fails to detect a sensor, exit the walk-test mode and make sure the sensor’s zone is not bypassed. (The LED of a bypassed zone blinks slowly.) If the zone is bypassed, remove the bypass and repeat the walk-test. If your system still fails to detect the sensor, contact your service representative.

IMPORTANT: during a walktest, your building is not protected against actual alarms.

To Conduct a Walk-Test:

1. Press and hold the 5 [walk test] key for 2 seconds until you hear two beeps. Enter the master user code. You see the following pattern of lit zone LEDs:

1  2 3 4 5 6 7 8

2. Press the HOME key.

3. Test your sensors by opening protected doors and windows, and by walking in front of motion sensors. The keypad beeps twice each time you open and close a protected door or window, or a motion detector senses your presence. The affected zone LED lights.

4. When done, press the CANCEL key.

How to Test the Bells and Sirens

1. Press and hold the 5 [walk test] key for 2 seconds until you hear two beeps. Enter the master user code.

2. Press the BYPASS key twice until you see the following pattern of lit zone LEDs:
1  2 3 4 5 6 7 8

3. Press the HOMEkey. Your system’s bells or sirens ring for 4 seconds.

To exit, press the CANCEL key

How to Test the Battery

Your system may include a backup battery. If it does, the system will continue to function during a power failure, because it will draw power from the battery.

About User Codes and User Numbers

You can assign a different user code and user number to each person who operates the system. Your security system supports up to 60 users.

If you prefer, you can assign only one user code and user number to a group of users. This is not recommended, since it will then be impossible to determine which individual gave a specific command.

user code is a secret four-digit number, used to arm and disarm the system, and possibly to make other changes. You cannot assign the same user code to more than one user number. It is important to remember your user code, and to keep it secret.

Every individual who has a user code is also assigned a two-digit user number. When you change or delete a user code, you are asked for the user number.

How to Enter a User Code

To enter a user code, simply press the four numbers in succession. Do not pause for more than five seconds between numbers.

How to Assign or Change User Codes

User codes can be created or changed as often as you like. Any code you select must be four digits long. You cannot use 0000, or assign the same code to more than one user number. Avoid codes that are easy to guess, like 1234. The default master user code (user number 1) is 5832. For security reasons, be sure to change this code to a different number. Do not assign the code 5832 to another user.

Your LED keypad does not display the user code assigned to a user number. However, if your system has an alphanumeric or icon keypad, you can use these keypads to view the user codes which have been assigned to the system’s users.

If you make a mistake while assigning a user code, you may correct it by repeating the procedure.

Be sure to record the user codes, and keep these records in a safe place.

To Assign or Change a User Code:

1. Press and hold the 8 [user prg] key for 2 seconds until you hear two beeps.

2. Enter the master user code. Next, enter the 2-digit user number you wish to change. To determine the next available user number, press the HOME key.

The zone LEDs light to identify the next available user number. Compare the pattern of lit zone LEDs to the chart on the next page to determine the user number.

3. Enter the new 4-digit user code. The display changes to indicate the next available user number.

4. To exit, press and hold the CANCEL key for 2 seconds.

When you are changing a user code, the zone LEDs light to identify which two-digit user number you have selected. Match your keypad’s LED pattern to the charts below to identify the user number.

Optional Code _X_
Active Certain Days/Times _X_

Designed for parents whose children come home first, this option allows you to be notified if your child is not home by a certain time. You can be notified by pager, by an automated telephone call, or by your monitoring station. (Not all monitoring stations offer this service.)

The Kidwatch Code is a four digit code that you can change or delete like any other user code. The code is assigned to user number 11. It allows your children to disarm the system, and can be programmed to allow them to arm or bypass zones.

How it works. After arriving home on a day when Kidwatch is active, your children disarm the system by entering the Kidwatch Code. If they do not enter the code by a given time, you are notified.

Changing Kidwatch Days. You have the option of changing which days Kidwatch is in effect. To do so, follow the procedure on the previous page.

Reviewing Kidwatch Use. You can review the times that Kidwatch Codes were used to arm and disarm your system by viewing Event Memory. See Section 6 for more information.

Turning Kidwatch On and Off. Kidwatch can be turned on and off. When Kidwatch is turned off, you are no longer notified of the use of the Kidwatch Code. Otherwise, the Kidwatch Code works as before. If you turn Kidwatch on or off, it remains that way until you change it back.

Kidwatch Setup. See Section 8 for the specifics of how the Kidwatch Code was set up on your system.

To Change Kidwatch Days :

1. Press and hold the BYPASS [kidwatch] key for 2 seconds until you hear two beeps. All of the zone LEDs blink.

2. Enter the master user code. The zone LEDs of your keypad light to show which days of the week Kidwatch is active. The zone 1 LED stands for Sunday; zone 2, for Monday, and so on. If the LED is lit, the use of the Kidwatch Code is monitored on that day.

3. Press the corresponding number of the day you wish to switch on or off. The appropriate LED turns on or off, to reflect the change.

4. To exit, press the CANCEL key.

To Turn Kidwatch On/Off:

Active Certain Days/Times _X_

Unlike other user codes, which work any day of the week, the Maid Code works only on certain days of the week.

The Maid Code is a four-digit user code that you can change or delete like any other user code. Your installer must have programmed your system to accept a Maid Code. For systems without multiple areas (as described in Section 7), the code is assigned to user number 13. It allows an individual to arm and disarm the system on specific days.

How it works. Arriving at the building during a day when the Maid Code is active, the maid can disarm the system by entering the Maid Code. Upon leaving the building, the maid can arm the system by entering the same code.

To Change Maid Days:

1. Press and hold 6 – the [maid] key for 2 seconds until you hear two beeps. All of the zone LEDs blink.

2. Enter the master user code. The zone LEDs of your keypad light to show which days of the week the Maid Code is active. The zone 1 LED stands for Sunday; zone 2, for Monday, and so on. If the LED is lit, the code works that day.

3. Press the corresponding number of the day(s) you wish to switch on or off. The appropriate LED turns on or off, to reflect the change.

4. To exit, press the CANCEL key.

Temporary
Maid Code
Standard Code ___
Optional Code _X_
Active Certain Days/Times _X_

As the preceding section shows, the Maid Code can be programmed to work on certain days of the week only. If you prefer, however, you can set the Maid Code to work for the next few hours, regardless of the day of the week. The number of hours the Maid Code works depends upon your system’s programming.

The Temporary Maid Code, like the Maid Code, is assigned to user number 13.

To Start the Maid Code Timer:

1. Press and hold 6.– the [maid] key for 2 seconds until you hear two beeps. All of the zone LEDs blink.

2. Enter the master user code.

3. Press the 8 key until the Zone 8 LED lights.

4. To exit, press the CANCEL key. The Maid Code will now work for the next few hours.

Duress
Code
Standard Code ___
Optional Code _X_
Active Certain Days/Times _X_

If an intruder forces you to disarm your system, this optional code sends a silent signal to alert monitoring station personnel that you are in danger.

For systems without multiple areas, the duress code is assigned to user number 15. You can change or delete this code like any other user code.

To Use the Duress Code:

1. Enter the four-digit code.

Your system appears to disarm normally. However, a message is sent to your monitoring station that you are in danger.

Relay
Code
Standard Code ___
Optional Code _X_
Active Certain Days/Times ___

A relay code acts like a switch. When you enter this code, a device that is connected to the control panel is turned on or off. For example, your system can be programmed to switch the exterior lights of your building on or off when you enter a relay code. Relay codes must be programmed into your system by the installer.

The relay code is a four-digit code that you can change or delete like any other user code. If you delete the relay code, you will no longer be able to use this feature. For systems without multiple areas the relay code is assigned to user number 14.

Selecting the Right User Number

At installation, each user number is assigned rights and privileges. For example, user number 18 may have the right to arm, disarm, and bypass zones. This is true even if, in this example, there is no user 18 using the system. Thus, when you assign a user code to a new user, be sure that you select a user number with the privileges you want that user to have. Your installer should have provided you with specific information about how your system was configured. Refer to this information to select the proper user number.
