FAQs

ARMING YOUR SYSTEM IN THE “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 1Close 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. If not,contact your installation company listed on page 1 of this booklet for service.
Step 2Enter 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 1Close 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. If not,contact your installation company listed on page 1 of this booklet for service.
Step 2Press 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 maidor baby sitter code, etc.

DISARMING THE SYSTEM
When you enter the protected area through one of the designated Entry/Exit doors, the codepad control will sound a solid continuous tone for the duration of the entry delay time, or until you enter a valid 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. (NOTE: If the red armed light is flashing during the entry delay, the alarm system has been activated in your absence.Leave the building immediately and call your alarm company and/or the police from a safe location.)

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 1Press the [BYPASS] key.
Step 2If required (optional), enter user code, if required (optional).
Step 3The bypass light flashes.
Step 4Enter 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 5Press the [BYPASS] key again.
Step 6The corresponding zone light will illuminate indicating the zone has been bypassed. Repeat 4 for any other zone(s) that need to be bypassed.
Step 7Press 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.

Whenever an alarm activation occurs on your system, all zones that were in alarm during that activation will be held in memory. The last alarm activation can be reviewed via the function listed below. i.e. You can see which area has activated the alarm.

  1. Press [s] [3].
  2. The ALARM MEMORY feature will flash those zones that created alarms and will light steady those zones that were bypassed during the last alarm.
  3. Press [#] to exit.

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.

VIEW ALARM MEMORY

Step 1   Press the [p] key.

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.

RESET SMOKE DETECTORS

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 [p] 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 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 centre, an emergency report could be sent to that centre.

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

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