Getting Started
Your Responder LC remote is powered by an internal rechargeable
battery that can only be serviced by an authorized Directed dealer.
Due to transit and storage time prior to your purchase, the battery
charge may have depleted. To ensure proper operation, check the
battery level and connect the battery charger if not fully charged.
See “Battery Information (Responder LC)” on page 48 and “Status
Screen Icons” on page 8 for more information about the battery.
Charging the remote control:
1.
2.
3.
Plug the AC adapter into a 110V AC outlet. Insert the mini-USB
connector into the mini-USB port located on the side of the
remote control (see diagram under Responder LC 2-way). The
text field will display CHARGE to indicate the remote control is
charging (The remote remains operational while charging and
can command the system).
Once fully charged the text field will display FULL .
The remote control is then ready for use. Disconnect the miniUSB end from the remote control first and then the AC adapter
from the AC outlet.
Note
4
If the battery is excessively depleted when the charger is
connected, functionality may be delayed while it charges to
the minimum voltage required to operate the display, after
which normal charging resumes.

Sensor triggers: The shock sensor can distinguish minor impacts from
major impacts to the vehicle exterior. Minor impacts causes the system
to emit a Warn-away output by chirping the siren and flashing the
parking lights for 3 seconds. Major impacts caused for example by a
forcible entry attempt, results in a Full Trigger output. The siren sounds
and the parking lights flash for 30 seconds or longer. Both Warnaway and Full Triggers send a message to the remote control.
Point of entry triggers: Opening the hood or trunk causes a Full Trigger output, while opening a Door or turning on the Ignition causes the
the siren to chirp 3 seconds before beginning the Full Trigger output.
This 3 second delay allows time to disarm and silence the siren in
case of accidental trigger. The Full Trigger message is still sent to the
remote.
Sensor Silent Arm protection
Sensor Warn-away and Sensor Full Trigger activations only send messages to the remote, while the parking light flash and siren outputs are
defeated. Point of entry triggers will activate the parking light flash,
siren, and send messages normally.

© 2012 Directed. All rights reserved.
Full Silent Arm Protection
Sensor Warn-away, Sensor Full Trigger and Point of Entry activations
will only send messages to the remote, with parking light flash and
siren outputs defeated.
Sensor Warn-away Messages
When the remote receives a Sensor Warn-away message it emits
10 beeps (if on) and displays a sensor zone specific SENSOR WARN
text for 30 seconds. Warn-away messages cannot be reviewed or
displayed in reports.
Full Trigger Messages
A Full Trigger message generates a Full Trigger output of siren tones
and zone specific TRIGGER text followed by an alert that consists of
1 long beep per minute for 10 minutes.
To stop the output and alert, press a command button to perform a
command, or Press the
button.
The following procedure disarms the system when a programmed remote is not available. Number of presses__________

Emergency Override
Trigger Zone Fault Report
When armed by remote command the system runs a status check
of the alarm trigger zones. Faulty zones (usually caused by dome
light delay or open trunk) are bypassed and reported via the control
center LED and remote, while all other trigger zones remain active
and are monitored to protect the vehicle. Should a faulty zone self
correct (dome light turns off) it becomes active and is then monitored
normally.
The siren chirps once again a few seconds following the arming
chirps as an audible alert, the control center LED flashes in groups to
indicate the zone number. The remote will emit a single fault tone and
play zone specific text that identifies the faulty zones.
Alarm Report when disarming
The most recent alarm triggers (if any) are reported when the alarm is
disarmed via the remote control, siren chirps, parking light and control
center LED flashes. The siren chirps 4 times (or 5 times if NPC On*),
the parking lights flash 3 times, and the control center LED flashes in
groups to indicate the last two zones that were triggered (see Table
of Zones). The DISARM text is replaced by ALARM REPORT and text
identifying the triggers.

Alarm Report when requested
The Alarm Report displays the two most recent alarm triggers depending on the system state when requested. When disarmed, the report
will display text to identify the two most recent triggers since the vehicle was last driven. When armed, the report will display text to
identify the two most recent triggers since the system was armed.
The Alarm Report clears when ignition is turned on.
Nuisance Prevention (NPC)
NPC monitors all alarm zones and, if any are triggered excessively,
bypasses them until corrected. If a point of entry (trunk, hood, door)
is left open following a forced entry, it is bypassed. It becomes active
again only after being closed.
Bypassed sensors automatically reset after one hour and after the
vehicle is driven. Disarming then re-arming the alarm does not reset
bypassed sensors.

Remote and System Operations
Passive Arming*
Park and exit the vehicle, after the doors are closed the Passive arming countdown begins. The led flashes quickly and upon reaching 20
seconds the siren then chirps once. At 30 seconds the system arms
itself.
Anytime before the system arms you can re-enter the vehicle or
open the trunk to load or unload items and, after closing passive arming resumes.
To stay secure in case of accidental disarming the system, if a
door is not opened within 30 seconds the system re-arms itself and
locks the doors.
Auto Re-arming*
Auto re-arm ensures the vehicle stays protected if it is not entered after
disarming by remote control. After disarming by remote, the alarm
automatically re-arms itself (and locks the doors if programmed on) in
30 seconds. Open any point of entry to stop the re-arm until the next
disarm by remote.
Onetime Bypass*
Turn the ignition On for one to three seconds and then Off. The siren
chirps once to confirm one-time bypass is enabled.
One-time bypass can be used to temporarily bypass the Passive arming operation for one cycle. It also bypasses the comfort closure and
auxiliary channel outputs programmed to activate when arming. After
the next disarm all operations return to normal.
* These features must be turned on by an authorized Directed dealer.

exiting.
Power Save
Rapid Resume
If power is ever disconnected by a mechanic or thief, the system will
resume the state it was in at the time of disconnection, when power
is reconnected.
Automatic Remote Updates
The system sends a silent message to all remote controls after any
major action has occurred. When the remote receives this message it
updates the status screen icons. This way all users are able to quickly
review the system status just by accessing the status screen.
© 2012 Directed. All rights reserved.
41
Feature Details
To reduce power consumption the control center status LED modifies
its output if the vehicle is parked for an extended period. If Armed the
flashing is reduced after 24 hours. When Valet mode is On the LED
will turn off 1 hour and will reset each time the ignition is turned off.
Out of Range
Each time a command is performed the remote will expect a command confirmation from the system. If a command confirmation is not
received the out-of-range icon ( ) and a fault tone will play as an
alert.
No Remote Output
Occasionally when a command is performed the remote may not
generate a command confirmation output or Out of Range output.
This indicates that the system received the command but it was an
incomplete command (e.g. AUX button pressed too short to activate
the trunk release) or it was an illegal message (e.g. the command
was corrupted due to local RF interference). These are temporary normal functions of the system and remote, perform the command again
within 10 seconds to return to normal operation.

Repeating the previous steps incrementally bypasses sensor operations and is confirmed as follows:
s Warn-away bypass: the parking lights flash two times as confirmation. The sensors respond to full trigger levels of impact only.
s Warn-away and full trigger bypass: The parking lights flash
three times as confirmation. The sensors do not respond to any
level of impact.
s Sensor bypass OFF: The Parking lights flash once as confirmation. The sensors are fully operational.

Battery Information (Responder LC )
The Responder LC remote control is powered by an internal rechargeable battery that can be serviced only through an authorized Directed
Electronics dealer. The information and precautions in this section can
help maximize your battery’s life and usage in providing your Responder LC remote control with many years of trouble free operation.
The battery information for the 1way companion remote control can
be found in the 1-way Companion Remote Control section of this
manual.
Warnings! NEVER connect the supplied AC adapter
to products other than the Responder LC remote control. It is a high current device designed specifically for
rapid charging of the Responder LC battery and may
cause severe damage or explosion when connected to
any other products.
Charging the battery when the temperature is below
32°F (0°C) or above 113°F (45°C) may cause severe
battery damage and/or reduce battery life. Avoid
placing the remote control in areas exposed to extreme cold or heat (direct sunlight) when charging the
battery.
Low Battery
After a command is performed the Responder LC and 1way companion remote controls check their battery level and, when the level
requires attention, will begin generating alerts. Once the alerts begin
they will continue to command the system for several days but should
48

be charged at the earliest opportunity or failure to control the system
may occur.
Low Battery Alerts
When disarming the system using a remote with a low battery the
siren will emit one additional chirp as an alert. If confirmation chirps
are programmed off, the system will still emit one chirp as an alert
when disarming. After performing a command, LOWBAT and several
beeps play on the Responder LC remote to indicate the battery needs
to be charged.
Important
To preserve power at critically low battery levels the
Responder LC turns the pager off and stops receiving
messages from the system. It will continue to command
the system until the battery can be charged.

Warning! Safety First
Please read the safety warnings below before proceeding. Improper
use of the product may be dangerous or illegal.
Installation
Due to the complexity of this system, installation of this product must only be
performed by an authorized Directed dealer. If you have any questions, ask
your retailer or contact Directed directly at 1-800-753-0600.
Remote Start Capable
When properly installed, this system can start the vehicle via a command
signal from the remote control transmitter. Therefore, never operate the system
in an enclosed area or partially enclosed area without ventilation (such as a
garage). When parking in an enclosed or partially enclosed area or when
having the vehicle serviced, the remote start system must be disabled using the
installed menu wheel. It is the user’s sole responsibility to properly handle and
keep out of reach from children all remote control transmitters to assure that the
system does not unintentionally remote start the vehicle. THE USER MUST INSTALL A CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR IN OR ABOUT THE LIVING AREA
ADJACENT TO THE VEHICLE. ALL DOORS LEADING FROM ADJACENT LIVING AREAS TO THE ENCLOSED OR PARTIALLY ENCLOSED VEHICLE STORAGE AREA MUST AT ALL TIMES REMAIN CLOSED. These precautions are the
sole responsibility of the user.
Manual Transmission Vehicles
Remote starters on manual transmission vehicles operate differently than those
with automatic transmission because you must leave your car in neutral. You
must read this Owner’s Guide to familiarize yourself with the proper procedures
regarding manual transmission remote starters. If you have any questions, ask
your authorized Directed dealer or contact Directed at 1-800-753-0600.

WARNING! It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure the parking/emergency brake properly functions. Failure to do so can result in personal injury or
property damage. We recommend the owner have the parking / emergency
brake system inspected and adjusted by a qualified automotive shop biannually.
Use of this product in a manner contrary to its intended mode of operation may
result in property damage, personal injury, or death. (1) Never remotely start
the vehicle with the vehicle in gear, and (2) Never remotely start the vehicle

of the vehicle periodically checked, wherein the vehicle must not remotely start
while the car is in gear. This testing should be performed by an authorized
Directed dealer in accordance with the Safety Check outlined in the product
installation guide. If the vehicle starts in gear, cease remote start operation immediately and consult with the authorized Directed dealer to fix the problem.
