Points
3.1
What is a point?
The term point refers to a detection device, or group of
devices connected to your security system. Points show
individually at the keypad with name. The point name
can describe a single door, motion sensor, smoke
detector, or an area such as Upstairs or Garage. There
are two basic types of points, controlled and 24-hour.
3.2
Controlled points
Controlled points respond to alarm conditions
depending upon whether the system is turned on
(armed) or turned off (disarmed). Controlled points are
programmed to respond instantly to alarm conditions or
to provide a delay for you to reach the keypad and turn
your system off. There are two types of controlled
points, part points and interior points.
3.2.1
Part points
Part points often include the exterior doors and
windows of the building (the perimeter of the building).
When you turn your system Part On, you only turn on
(arm) the part points.

Control Panels
3.2.2
Points | en
15
Interior points
These points often include interior forms of burglary
detection devices, such as motion sensors or interior
doors, for example. When you turn your system All On,
you turn on (arm) both part points and interior points.
3.3
24-hour points
24-hour points are always on (armed), even when your
security system is turned off (disarmed). There are two
types of 24-hour points, fire points and non-fire points.
3.3.1
Fire points
Fire points exclusively monitor fire detection devices.
They are always on (armed) and cannot be turned off
(disarmed). You can clearly distinguish fire points from
other non-fire points at the keypad.
3.3.2
Non-Fire points
Non-fire 24-hour points are always on (armed) and you
cannot turn them off (disarm). Panic buttons, hold up
buttons, low temperature sensors, and water sensors
are examples of devices that are typically monitored by
non-fire 24-hour points.

Areas
4.1
What is an area?
An area is a number of points that are grouped together
so that you can control them together as one unit. For
example, if a security system protected a building with
three sections – an office, a laboratory, and a cafeteria –
the points in each of those sections could be grouped
together as an area. With each section being its own
area in your security system, you can turn them on
(arm) and off (disarm) individually, in groups (office and
laboratory, for example), or all together.

Warning displays and tones
The keypads emit several distinct tones and shows text
to alert you to system events. Additional bells or sirens
may also be connected to your system. Bells or sirens
mounted on the exterior of the premises alert neighbors
to emergencies and provide an audible guide for police
and fire fighters.
The keypads have five status LEDs that indicate the
status of the system and some alarms. For more
information, refer to the status LED overview section for
your keypad.
5.1
Keypad quiets for keystrokes
Pressing any key on the keypad lights the keys and
quiets any warning tones. If you do not press another
key within 20 seconds, the keypad lights go out and the
warning tones resume.
5.2
Silence the alarm tone
The audible alarm sounds for a specific period of time
before it automatically shuts off. To silence the siren
before the time expires, simply enter your personal
passcode and press [Enter] or [ENTER].

Entry delay tone and display
When you enter a system that is on (armed) through a
point programmed for entry delay, the keypad emits the
entry delay tone as a reminder to turn off the security
system.
Failure to turn off your security system before the entry
delay time expires might sound the burglary tone and
could result in an alarm report being sent to your
security company.
Your security company programmed the entry delay
times for you:
My entry delay time is: _______________________________
5.4
Exit delay tone and display
When you first turn on (arm) your system (using your
keypad or keyfob), the keypad emits the exit delay tone,
shows Exit Now!, and counts down the exit delay time.
The tone pulsing rate increases during the last 10 sec of
exit time.
If you exit and re-enter before exit time expires, the exit
delay timer restarts the countdown. The restart only
applies once.

How the system reports
events
Your security system makes repeated attempts to send
reports to your security company. In the event your
security system fails to communicate, the keypad
sounds the trouble tone and the keypad shows a
communication failed message. Notify your security
company of the communications failure.
If your telephone, internet, or cellular service is
interrupted, your security system cannot send reports
to the security company unless an alternate means of
transmitting the reports exists.
For telephone communication, your security company
can program your security system to automatically
disconnect the telephones when sending reports to the
security company. Once the report finishes, the security
system returns the telephones to normal operation
(check with your security company).
Consult with your installer to determine if your security
system is configured with a communicator delay. A
communicator delay aborts reports to the central

station if the control panel is disarmed within 30 to 45
seconds after an burglary alarm is triggered. Note that
fire-type alarms are normally reported without a delay.
Consult with your installer to determine if your security
system is configured with a cancel feature. If you silence
a non-fire alarm before the alarm sound timer expires,
your security systems sends a cancel report to your
security company.
Consult with your installer to determine if your security
system is configured with a swinger shutdown feature
for non-fire alarms and trouble events. After a
programmable number of alarm or trouble events your
security system will automatically bypass points.
If your telephone service includes the call waiting
feature, your security company can configure your
security system so that call waiting does not interfere
with alarm reporting. Be sure to notify your security
company if you enable call waiting. A system that is
configured for call waiting cannot report alarms
correctly when call waiting is disabled. If you disable
call waiting after your system has been configured for it,
be sure to notify your security company.

Alarm events
The system produces several types of events.
7.1
Priority of events
If more than one event occurs, the system sorts them
into one of six groups. The groups are (highest priority
first): Fire Alarms, Gas Alarms, User Alarms, Burglary
Alarms, Fire Troubles, and Non-Fire Troubles. The group
with the highest priority scrolls first. The descriptions
and instructions that follow describe the tones and
displays for each group, and explain how to silence the
tones.
7.2
Fire alarms
Fire alarms are the highest priority events. When a fire
point activates, the keypad emits a unique pulsating fire
tone (━━━ ━━━ ━━━).
Evacuate all occupants and investigate for smoke or fire.
Ensure that all occupants know the difference between
the steady burglary tone (━━━━━━━━━━━), the pulsating
gas tone (━ ━ ━ ━
━━━━
━ ━ ━ ━), and the pulsating
fire tone (━━━ ━━━ ━━━). The tone sounds for the
duration set by your security company.

Your security company can program your system so that
users cannot silence some fire alarms until the fire
event clears. Your security company can program the
system so that users cannot silence some fire alarms
until the fire point has restored to normal. The Alarm
Silenced message continues to scroll as a reminder that
you can still view the points in alarm by using the View
Event Memory menu option.
If the fire point is still in alarm (faulted) then the point
goes to trouble after silencing. Some fire points need to
be reset. You cannot clear fire troubles from the display.
When fire points return to normal (trouble conditions
are corrected), the security system automatically clears
the fire troubles from the display.

initiated alarms that include hold-up, panic, and medical
alarms, for example. Medical alarms are not available on
UL listed systems. A steady tone (━━━━━━━━━━━) sounds
for the time set by your security company.
Burglary alarms are the forth priority. When a burglary
point activates while the system is on (armed), the

points
To turn on (arm) the system, all the doors and windows
in the system must be in the normal (not faulted)
condition. Viewing the faulted points helps you find
faulted points and correct them so arming is possible.
The keypad offers two ways of displaying faulted and
bypassed point information. The first causes the faulted
or bypassed point information to scroll automatically
through the display. The second allows you to manually
scroll through each individual point description.

Use the Extend Close Time option when you need to
stay later than the scheduled close time. If you do not
extend the Close Time and do not turn the system on
before the scheduled time, the system creates a Late to
Close event.
At the beginning of the closing window, the keypad
beeps and shows Please Close Now to remind you to
turn on (arm) your system. It remains in the display until
you turn on the system, the close window ends, or you
extend closing. Alarm or trouble messages replace this
message in the event of an alarm or trouble condition. If
the alarm or trouble condition clears before the end of
the close window Please Close Now returns to the

15.3 Test
Use the Test menu to walk test your system, send test
reports, or to review system revision information on the
keypad display.
15.3.1 Walk Test
A walk test allows you to test the sensors, keypads,
sounders, and other devices in your system without
creating alarm events. You can review untested points
at the keypad to help pinpoint any problems.
You cannot turn on the security system while in the walk
test mode. Also, the security system does not create
alarm events for points included in the walk test. Points
not included create alarm events. For example, faulting
a fire point during an intrusion walk test creates a fire
alarm event.
Beginning the walk test activates the burglary tone for 2
seconds. A battery test also begins. A successful battery
test ends in four minutes (the walk test continues). If
the security system determines there is a low battery, it
generates a low battery event and continues the test. If
the battery is determined to be very low, the system
creates a missing battery event and ends the battery
test immediately.

Use the Add User function to add a passcode to your

know which user numbers are available, the authority
level you want to assign to the new passcode, and the
areas in which it will be valid.
The two-digit user numbers identify users in reports
transmitted from your security system. The authority
level determines what system functions the passcode
can access. The area number identifies which parts of
your security system the passcode can access. Contact
your security company if you don’t know what user
numbers, authority levels, or areas are available.

Before you begin:
–
Do not try to add passcodes without knowing the
available user numbers. These are two-digit
numbers, not to be confused with passcodes, that

Choose a new passcode three to six digits long. If
you choose a passcode with the same digit in

take care when entering it.
–

provides entry and exit delay. For example, you can turn
on the area and leave through a door (within exit delay
time) without creating an alarm event. When you turn

22.4 Extend Closing
Your security company might program your system to
expect you to turn on (arm) within a closing window. A
closing window is a duration of time programmed by
your security company. Your security company sets a
fixed length of time for the closing window. Additionally,
your security company might program your system to
automatically turn on (arm) at the end of the window.
Use the Extend Close Time option when you need to
stay later than the scheduled close time. If you do not
extend the Close Time and do not turn the system on
before the scheduled time, the system creates a Late to
Close event.
At the beginning of the closing window, the keypad
beeps and shows Please Close Now to remind you to
turn on (arm) your system. It remains in the display until
you turn on the system, the close window ends, or you
extend closing. Alarm or trouble messages replace this
message in the event of an alarm or trouble condition. If
the alarm or trouble condition clears before the end of
the close window Please Close Now returns to the
keypad display.

24.3 Test
Use the Test menu to walk test your system, send test
reports, or to review system revision information on the
keypad display.
24.3.1 Walk Test
A walk test allows you to test the sensors, keypads,
sounders, and other devices in your system without
creating alarm events. You can review untested points
at the keypad to help pinpoint any problems.
You cannot turn on the security system while in the walk
test mode. Also, the security system does not create
alarm events for points included in the walk test. Points
not included create alarm events. For example, faulting
a fire point during an intrusion walk test creates a fire
alarm event.
Beginning the walk test activates the burglary tone for 2
seconds. A battery test also begins. A successful battery
test ends in four minutes (the walk test continues). If
the security system determines there is a low battery, it
generates a low battery event and continues the test. If
the battery is determined to be very low, the system
creates a missing battery event and ends the battery
test immediately.

29.3 Security system limitations
Not even the most advanced security system can
guarantee protection against burglary, fire, or
environmental threats. All security systems are subject
to possible compromise or failure-to-warn for a variety
of reasons including, but not limited to, the following:
–
Sirens or horns placed outside the hearing range of
people in remote areas of the building or in areas
that are frequently closed off do not provide the
intended protection.
–
If intruders gain access through unprotected points
of entry, the security system does not detect the
intruders.
–
If intruders have the technical means of bypassing,
jamming, or disconnecting all or part of the security
system, the security system cannot detect the
intruders.
–
If the AC power supply is OFF and the back-up
battery is either missing or dead, the security
system does not detect intrusion.
–
Smoke detectors cannot detect smoke in chimneys,
walls, or roofs, or smoke blocked by a closed door.
They might not detect smoke or fire on a level of the
building different from the one on which they are
located. Smoke detectors might not be able to warn

in time about fires started by explosions, improper
storage of flammables, overloaded electrical circuits,
or other types of hazardous conditions.
–
If your security system’s method of communication
is down (phone line, cellular, or internet problems),
reports from the security system to the security
company cannot send. Communication methods are
vulnerable to compromise by several means.
Inadequate maintenance and failure to test are the most
common causes of alarm failure. Testing the system
once a week is strongly recommended to ensure all
system components are working properly.
Although having a security system might make you
eligible for reduced insurance premiums, the security
system is no substitute for insurance. Warning devices
cannot compensate you for loss of life or property.

29.4 Cross points
Points can be assigned to cross point groups. When a
point in a cross point group detects an alarm, the
control panel starts the cross point timer. If a second
point in the same cross point group detects an alarm
while the cross point timer is active, the control panel
sends alarm reports for both points.
If a single cross point detects an alarm and stays in
alarm throughout the cross point timer, the control
panel sends an alarm report only for that point. If a
single point in a cross point group detects an alarm and
restores while the timer is still active, the system sends
an unverified event for that point. A second alarm on the
first point does not create an alarm event, but rather an
unverified event.
Cross points are:

29.5 Fire safety and evacuation
Residential fire is a leading cause of accidental death.
Most fire related deaths occur at night when occupants
suffocate in their sleep from smoke and toxic gases,
rather than from burns. To help reduce this risk,
implement the following program:
–
Make a home escape plan. Draw a map of your home
showing all doors and windows. Discuss the plan
with everyone in your home.
–
Know at least two ways out of every room, if
possible. Make sure all foors and windows leading
outside open easily.
–
Have an outside meeting place (like a tree, light pole
or mailbox), a safe distance from the home where
everyone should meet.
–
Practice your home fire drill at night and during the

29.6 Multiple area systems
29.6.1 Keypad scope
Your security company can configure your security
system so that keypads allow you view the status of and
control only one area, a group of areas, or all of the
areas in your system. The areas you can view and the
area functions (actions) you can use at a keypad
constitute the keypad’s scope.
29.6.2 Authority levels
Each of your security system users is assigned an
authority level. An authority level determines how much
control the user has for any function that requires a
passcode (turning an area on, for example). The
authority level is set for each area in a multiple area
system so that a user can have different levels in each
area, if desired.
29.6.3 Scope and authority levels combined
The functions you can use at a keypad (turning All On,
for example) are limited to the areas you have authority
in, and the areas that are within a keypad’s scope.
Example
Your security system protects a business configured for
three areas (the office, the warehouse, and shipping),
and three users (1, 2, and 3).
