FAQs

After you have turned the system off with your [User code], the keypad will indicate Alarm Memory.

To clear the display of the alarm or trouble conditions and silence the audible alert:

Enter your [User code] again.

You can turn the Burglar portion of your security system on and off. Before you turn the system on, it must be ready. If you have a protected door open or someone is moving near a motion detector, the system is not ready and the READY LED is not lit. The system is ready if the READY LED is lit.

System Turn On:

  • Check to make sure the system is READY – Green READY LED is lit.
  • Enter your [4-digit user code] (or press the [Arm] button on your key-fob).
  • The ARM LED goes on.
  • Exit through a door designated by your installer as an exit/entry door.

System Turn Off:

  • Enter through door designated by your installer as an exit/entry door.
  • Enter your [4-digit user code] (or press the [Disarm] button on your key-fob).
  • The ARM LED goes out.

System Turn On/ Leave

  • Enter your [4-digit user code]. The ARM LED lights.
  • Exit through a door designated by your installer as an exit/entry door.
  • You must leave within the period of time known as the exit time.

If the system is not ready to be armed, the READY LED is off. The zone lights can have the following conditions:

Fast BlinkAlarm
Slow Blink/Low IntensityBypass (Note that you will get a lit READY LED if all faulted zones are bypassed.)
Slow PulseTrouble
Solid OnNot Ready

Example: If the READY LED is not lit and the zone no.1 light is solid on, an alarm sensor on zone no. 1 is not normal. This might mean that a window is open or someone is walking near a motion sensor. Check all sensors on zone no. 1 and resolve the problem. When all sensors are normal, the READY LED goes on and the zone no. 1 light goes out. Determine which zone or zones are not ready, resolve the problem, and turn the system on normally. If the problem cannot be resolved, you may bypass the zone that is not ready. Bypassing should be done only if the problem on the zone cannot be resolved OR if you intentionally wish to leave the zone off. Example: You wish to keep the window open for ventilation. Bypassed zones are not protected when the system is on.

System Turn On/ Stay Inside:

The STAY mode turns the perimeter portion of your burglar alarm on and allows you to move around freely inside the premises.

  • Check to make sure the system is READY.
  • Press: [Stay] followed by your [user code].
  • The ARM LED and the STAY LED should now be lit.
  • You must turn the system off if you want to open the door or leave the premises after the exit time has passed.

System Turn On/ Stay Inside/ Instant Mode:

In INSTANT STAY mode, the perimeter portion of your burglar alarm system is on and the time delays are eliminated from your normal entry/exit door(s). All interior protection is off (if so programmed), so you are free to move around inside.

  • Check to make sure the system is READY; when ready:
  • Press [Instant] then [Stay] followed by your [user code].
  • The ARM LED, INST LED, and STAY LED should now be lit.

System Turn On/ Leave/ Instant Mode:

In INSTANT mode, all alarm sensors, including sensors on doors that normally have a delay to allow you to turn the system off, report an alarm immediately, if activated.

  • Check to make sure the system is READY; when ready.
  • Press: [Instant] followed by your [user code].
  • The ARM LED and the INST LED should now be lit.

Quick On (Quick Arming):

If programmed by your installer, Quick On, or Quick Arming, allows you to turn the system on to the Away mode without entering a user code. To enable Quick On:

  • Press [#] [1]

Quick Forced On:

If programmed by your installer, Quick Forced On allows you to turn the burglar portion of your alarm system on to the Away Mode bypassing all zones that are not ready. To enable Quick Force On:

  • Press [#] [2]

Quick Exit:

If enabled, this feature allows the user to exit without having to disarm then arm the system. It is activated by pressing the [Stay] key while the system is armed and not in entry delay. This starts exit time, causes the keypad to beep once, and allows the user to exit without disarming the system. The system returns to its last armed state after exit time has expired.

System Turn On (Maid Code):

If you choose to have a code that cannot turn the system off, but can turn the system on, have your installer program this feature. If programmed, user code no. 5 has system on capability only, and you can issue this code to a temporary user so they can secure the premises when they leave.

System Turn Off:

When you turn off the system, you turn off only the burglar portion of your system; any smoke or heat detectors and panic keys remain on. You must enter through a designated entry door and turn off the system within the time allowed. You can have different amounts of time for different entry points.

  • Enter your 4-digit [user code].
  • If no alarms have taken place, the ARM LED goes out.

Bypass

Bypass excludes a zone of protection from the security system until it is un-bypassed or until the next time you disarm the system. Bypassing can only be done while the system is turned off.

  • Press the [Bypass] key followed by your [user code] and then the [zone no. (1-8)] to be bypassed.
  • If Quick Bypass is enabled, you need only to press the [Bypass] key and the [zone no].Bypassed zones are not protected when the system is turned on. After the bypass command has been accepted, the keypad sounds one long beep and the zone or zones bypassed slowly blink.

Un-bypass

Un-bypass returns a bypassed zone to normal operation. Un-bypass is a repeat of the Bypass function.

  • Press the [Bypass] key followed by your [user code] and then the [zone no. (1-8)] to be un-bypassed.
  • If Quick Bypass is enabled, you need only to press the [Bypass] key and the [zone no].
  • Fire zones cannot be bypassed.
  • 24-Hour zones can be bypassed: however, they cannot be un-bypassed if they are violated.
  • Subsequent bypasses and un-bypasses without Quick Bypass enabled can be made by pressing the [Bypass] key, and then pressing another [zone no] within a 10-second period. After the 10-second period has expired, the entire command including user code must be entered. After un-bypassing, the zone displays indicate the state of the zones.

Turn Chime On/Off:

Chime is an optional feature that causes the keypad to chime when selected doors are opened when the burglary protection is off or disarmed.

Only your installer can program a zone for the Chime feature, but once it is programmed, you can turn Chime on or off to meet your daily needs.

Your system can be programmed for three separate Send Help Alerts, which send an emergency signal to your central station. These three alerts, along with their keypad combinations, are shown below:

Fire:

[7] & [9]

Panic:

[*] & [#]

Aux/Medical:

[1] & [3]

Duress

Your system can be programmed to send an emergency signal to the central station if you are forced to enter the premises. If you choose to include this feature, user code no. 6 is dedicated to this function and must only be used under a duress circumstance.

Smoke Detector Reset:

Enter your 4-digit [user code].

To set the time and date, press [#] [3]. Enter 2 digits each for hours, minutes, month, day, and year.

  • Hours (00-23) minutes (01-59) month (01-12) day (01-31) year (00-99)
  • A beep sounds after you set each component of the time and date.

System Test:

We recommend that you test your system once a week using the following procedure:

  1. Turn your security system on. Enter your [4-digit user code].
  2. Wait until your exit time is over and then activate the system by opening a protected zone (for example, a window or door).
  3. Confirm that the alarm sounding device (bell or siren) sounds. If your system is connected to a central station, the keypad will sound the ring back tone to confirm that the signal was received.
  4. Turn the security system off. Enter your [4-digit user code].
  5. Call the central station to tell them you are finished testing.

Battery Test:

We recommend that you test your battery once a month. To test your backup/standby battery, follow this procedure.

  1. Unplug the transformer from the AC outlet
  2. Observe that the AC indicator light on the keypad goes off.
  3. Activate your alarm by performing the above SYSTEM TEST.

1) Zone Status LEDS

These LED’s display the current zone status, including alarms, bypasses, troubles, and faults. Each condition causes these LED’s to operate differently, as follows:

  • ALARMS – Fast blink (approx. 150mS on – 150mS off).
  • TROUBLES – Slow pulse (approx. 600mS on – 600mS off).
  • BYPASSES – Wink (100mS on – 900mS off). Zone bypasses are displayed as a very slow wink of the zone LED.
  • FAULTED ZONES – Solid on. Faulted zones are the lowest-priority indication. Faulted burglary zones are displayed with the LED solidly on while the system is disarmed.
  • NORMAL – Off.

2) ARM LED

This LED indicates whether the system is currently armed (on) or disarmed (off). This LED also blinks fast to show that alarms have occurred, or blinks slowly upon failure to communicate with the central station.

3) STAY LED

This LED indicates whether the system has been armed in the STAY mode or the STAY/INSTANT mode. If the INST LED is lit and the STAY LED is lit, then the system is in the STAY/INSTANT mode. If the INST LED is off and the STAY LED is lit, then the system is in the STAY mode only. In either mode, the STAY LED indicates the following:

OnInterior zones are bypassed
OffInterior zones are active armed

4) INST (Instant) LED

This LED indicates whether the system has been armed in the STAY/INSTANT mode. In this mode the system is currently armed, all delay zones are instant, and all interior zones are bypassed.

OnDelay zones are currently instant
OffDelay zones are normal

5) AC/LB (Low Battery) LED

This LED indicates the current power status of the panel as follows:

OnAC is present
OffNo AC, running on battery backup
Slow BlinkLow-battery condition detected

6) READY LED

This LED indicates whether the system is ready for arming. The READY LED is common to all BURGLARY ZONES, and defines the following conditions:

OnSystem ready to be armed
OffSystem not ready to be armed
Slow BlinkInstaller programming mode
Fast BlinkAlarm memory mode

7) Stay Key

The [Stay] key enables arming the system, excluding zones programmed as interior zones. This provides exterior protection of the location while allowing full access throughout the interior.

8) Bypass Key

The [Bypass] key is used to temporarily exclude protection of a specific zone.

9) Instant Key

The [Instant] key enables arming the system, eliminating entry/exit delays. If enabled with the [Stay] key, it enables arming the system in the STAY/INSTANT mode.

10) Code Key

The [Code] key is used to enter the installer programming mode and enter user codes.

11) Keypad Auxiliary Keys

Pressing the two keys (top and bottom) labeled “P” at the same time initiates a CS transmission, if programmed, of PANIC, AUXILIARY, or FIRE, annunciates the keypad sounder, and turns on the bell output. If not programmed to transmit, these keys can only result in a local warning, as follows:

Keypad SounderSteady for PANIC, Pulsing for FIRE and AUXILIARY
Bell OutputSteady for PANIC, Pulsing for FIRE

12) TX LB LED

This LED pulses whenever any RF transmitter has a low battery. The corresponding zone LED for that transmitter also pulses.

13) RF SPVR LED

This LED indicates three different RF supervisory conditions and one bell output supervisory condition, as follows:

OffNo supervision conditions exist (normal)
OnRF transmitter has not checked in for more than 12 hours
Fast BlinkRF transmitter reports a tamper condition
Slow BlinkBell output is in supervision

Add or Change a User Code:

Users can be entered or modified directly through the keypad. Your system can have up to 6 different user codes. User no.1 is the Master User and is the only one allowed to add or delete other users.\

  • Press the [Code] key followed by the 4-digit [Master User code], then the [user no]. And the new 4-digit [user code].
  • The keypad beeps after each digit is pressed.

Your installer will indicate if you have chosen to dedicate a user code to send an emergency signal in the case of ambush or duress. You may also have chosen to reserve one user code that is allowed only to turn the system on; this code will not be able to turn the system off.

Delete a User Code:

To delete user no.

  • Press the [Code] key followed by the 4-digit [Master User Code], then the [user no]. Then [*] to delete.

NOTE: User No. 1, the Master User, cannot be deleted, but it can be changed using the ADD OR CHANGE USER PROCEDURE.

Duress:

Your system can be programmed to send an emergency signal to the central station if you are forced to enter the premises. If you choose to include this feature, user code no. 6 is dedicated to this function and must only be used under a duress circumstance.

Maid Code:

If you choose to have a code that cannot turn the system off, but can turn the system on, have your installer program this feature. If programmed, user code no. 5 has system on capability only, and you can issue this code to a temporary user so they can secure the premises when they leave.
