FAQs

ARMING SYSTEM IN “ON” MODE:

ON is used when the user is away from the premise and wants the interior protected. Listed below are the steps to arm in the ON Mode:

Step 1      Close all protected doors and windows.

Ready light will be on or flashing when all protected zones and sensors are secure. NOTE: If any zones are bypassed, a sensor in that zone can be violated without affecting the ready light. The security system will not arm if the ready light is not on or flashing. If the power light is off, you have no AC power. Restore power if possible.

Step 2      Enter your 4 or 6 digit user code to arm the system.

The armed and exit lights will illuminate. You may now leave the building. NOTE: The exit light will flash rapidly for the last 10 seconds of the exit delay as a warning to the user that the exit time is about to expire. The user may wish to press the [Exit] key to start the exit delay again or disarm and rearm the system if more time is needed.

ARMING SYSTEM IN “PARTIAL” MODE:

PARTIAL is used when the user is inside the premise and wants protection around the perimeter. Listed below are the steps to arm in the PARTIAL Mode:

Step 1      Close all protected doors and windows.

Ready light must be on or flashing when all protected zones and sensors are secure. NOTE: If any zones are bypassed, a sensor in that zone can be violated without affecting the ready light. The security system will not arm if the ready light is not on or flashing. If the power light is off, you have no AC power. Restore power if possible.

Step 2      Press the [Partial] key.

The bypass light will illuminate if any zone(s) is bypassed. The light(s) corresponding to the bypassed zone(s) will illuminate, alerting the user that a zone(s) may be unprotected and can be faulted without an alarm.

USING THE QUICK ARM: (Optional, if programmed)

The Quick Arm feature may be used if it is enabled. Quick Arm will allow the user to arm the security system in the ON mode by pressing the [ON] key. The system can be quick armed in the PARTIAL mode by pressing the [PARTIAL] key. This feature is used for ARMING ONLY, and should not be enabled to disarm the security system. This is ideal for a maid or baby sitter code, etc.

DISARMING THE SYSTEM:

When you enter the protected area through one of the designated Entry/Exit doors, the code pad control will sound a solid continuous tone for the duration of the entry delay time, or until you enter a valid user code. After entering a valid code the red armed light will go off and the tone will stop. The security system is now DISARMED. If a valid code is not entered before the end of the entry delay, an alarm will occur.

BYPASSING ZONES:

If you wish to bypass one or more zones, this must be done while the system is in the disarmed state. The following steps are used for bypassing zones:

Step 1      Press the [BYPASS] key.

Step 2      If required (optional), enter [User code].

Step 3      The bypass light flashes.

Step 4      Enter a 2 digit zone indicating the zone you wish to bypass. (Example: Press the [0] – [1] key for zone 1, press [1] – [2] for zone 12.)

Step 5      Press the [BYPASS] key again.

Step 6      The corresponding zone light will illuminate indicating the zone has been bypassed. Repeat 4 for any other zone(s) that need to be bypassed.

Step 7      Press the [BYPASS] key again or press the [#] key to exit the Bypass Mode. The Bypass light will stop flashing upon exiting the Bypass Mode.

UN-BYPASSING:

To manually un-bypass zones, perform the bypassing procedure on a zone that is already bypassed. The corresponding light for that zone will go off when un-bypassed.

NOTE: All zones will automatically be un-bypassed each time the system is disarmed.

GROUP BYPASS:

By pressing the [BYPASS] key, followed by the [0][0] key, then the [BYPASS] key again, all zones that are designated as group bypass zones will be bypassed.

Now you can arm your system in either the [ON] or [PARTIAL] mode.

Once armed (and the bypass toggle feature is enabled) press the [BYPASS] key again to exit group bypassing.

VIEW ALARM MEMORY:

Step 1      Press the [*].

Step 2      Press the [3] key.

Step 3      The ALARM MEMORY feature will flash those zones that created alarms and will light steady those zones that were bypassed during the last alarm.

Step 4      Press the [#] key to exit Alarm Memory.

TURNING THE DOOR CHIME ON AND OFF:

The door chime is turned on or off by pressing the [CHIME] key while the system is in the disarmed state.

If the chime is on, the chime light will be illuminated. If the chime is off, the chime light will be off.

Each press of the [CHIME] key will toggle the chime feature on/off and produce a momentary ding-dong sound.

This function is used to reset Smoke Detectors, Zone Troubles, and Zone Tampers.

Step 1      Disarm the system if not disarmed.

Step 2      Press the [*] key.

Step 3      Press the [7] key.

Reset has now been performed.

Step 4      If the code pad begins beeping, the reset did not execute properly. Enter your [USER CODE] to silence the code pad. Wait a few minutes and repeat step 2 to attempt another reset. If the code pad still beeps after repeated attempts, please contact your installer.

NOTE: You must hold these keys for 2 seconds to activate these functions.

Your system may not be programmed for these activation keys (see page 1). You should press these keys only in an emergency situation that requires response by emergency personnel.

If your system is programmed for these functions, the following reports can be sent.

Fire Key: This key can activate the fire alarm when pressed for two seconds. If your system is connected to a monitoring center, an emergency report could be sent to that center

Auxiliary Emergency Key: This key can activate the auxiliary alarm when pressed for two seconds. If your system is connected to a monitoring center, an emergency report could be sent to that center.

Police (Panic/Hold-Up) Key: This key can sound a local audible alarm when pressed for two seconds. If your system is connected to a monitoring center, an emergency report could be transmitted to that center.

NOTE: Some Panic/Hold-Up alarms are programmed to be silent at the protected site while reporting an alarm to the monitoring center. Check with your installation company to determine how your security system will respond to the Panic/Hold-Up activation.

Understanding the Lights:

Armed Light

The armed light is “on” when the system is armed. The armed light is “off” when it is disarmed. The armed light will flash when there has been an alarm during the previous arm cycle.

Bypass Light

The bypass light is “on” when any zone is bypassed. The zone(s) that is bypassed will also be illuminated. If the bypass light is “off”, no zones are bypassed.

Chime Light

The chime light is “on” when the chime feature is “on”; “off” otherwise.

Exit Light

The exit light is “on” during the exit delay. Please note that the light will flash during the last 10 seconds of the exit delay as a warning that the time is running out. (The user may want to restart the exit delay if the exit light is flashing in order to prevent an alarm. The user may then press the [Exit] key to restart the exit delay before the delay expires.)

Fire Light

A steady fire light means a fire zone has been faulted. A rapidly flashing fire light means that a fire zone is in a trouble condition.

On Light

The on light is “on” when the system is armed. The on light is “off” when it is disarmed.

Partial Light

The partial light is “on” when the system is armed in the Partial Mode. All non bypassed zones will be delayed and follow the Partial delay time. When armed in Partial Mode, the Arm, On, and Bypass light will also be “on”.

Power Light

The power light is on if the primary power is on. The power light will flash if the system has a low battery condition.

Ready Light

The ready light is “on” when the system is ready to arm and “flashes” if ready to force arm. The ready light is “off” when the system is not ready to arm because of a zone(s) being faulted.

Zone Light

The zone lights are “off” when everything is normal. A zone light will be “on” if the zone has been bypassed. If a zone light is “flashing”, that zone is in alarm or has been faulted. If a zone light is “flashing” rapidly, it means that the zone is in a trouble condition. Trouble conditions are:

Tamper

Hardware

Wireless Sensor Low Battery

Wireless Sensor Loss of Supervision

(A combination of Alarm/Fault and Tamper/Trouble will produce a rapid “flashing” light for a short period of time, followed by a slow flashing” light.)
