About This User’s Guide
This user’s guide shows you how to use and maintain your security system.
It covers basic functions, such as turning the system on and off.
The functions described in this guide are programmed by your security
company. Some of them may not be enabled in your system. Certain
functions covered may require you to enter your personal passcode.
Introduction
Your system helps to secure life, property, and investments against fire,
theft and bodily harm. It consists of one or more Command Centers, motion
sensors (for example, detectors or devices located on doors and windows)
and sensing devices designed to detect the presence of smoke or
combustion. Each of these devices is connected to a sophisticated control
panel with microprocessor, which processes all events registered by the
system.
Control of your security system is achieved through the Command Center,
which offers a variety of basic and advanced features. Its function,
versatility, and ease of operation make it ideal for home or office use. The
Command Center is tailored to meet your individual needs. Moreover, it
has been designed with you, the user, in mind.

Security System Basics
What is a Point?
A Point is a detection device or group of devices connected to your security
system. Points are identified by the area they monitor, such as a front
door, bedroom window or hallway.
What is a Faulted Point?
When a point (such as a door or window) is closed, it is said to be normal.
When the door or window is open, the point is said to be faulted or not
normal. When you turn your system on, you will usually want all of the
points in your system to be normal. However, you can turn your system on
with faulted points by using the Bypass Points command.
If a point indicator on the Command Center is on, the point is said to be
faulted. When the faulted point has returned to normal, the point indicator
on the Command Center turns off.
Are All Points the Same ?
Not all points are the same. In fact, there are two basic types of points,
Controlled and 24-hour.
Controlled Points
Controlled points respond to alarm conditions depending upon whether
the system is turned on or off. They are programmed to either respond
instantly to alarm conditions or to provide a delay for you to reach the
Command Center and turn the system off. Various controlled points may
be located throughout your house.
When you turn your system on, you have the option of turning on all
controlled points (All On), or just some of the controlled points (Part On).
See page 7 for more information on “All On” and “Part On.”
24-hour Points
24-hour points are always on, even when the system is turned off. There
are two types of 24-hour points, fire points and non-fire points. See page
35, “Reset the System,” for more information.
• Fire Points: Fire points only monitor fire detection devices such as
smoke detectors. They are always on and cannot be turned off.
• Non-fire 24-hour Points: Non-fire 24-hour points are always on and
cannot be turned off.

perimeter (doors and windows) of your system, or the points on the first
floor of a two story house. Check with your security company to learn
which points are Part points.

Security System User’s Guide
Fire Alarms
Fire alarms are the highest priority events. When a fire point activates,
your Command Center emits a Fire Alarm tone (repeated warble tone - on
for two seconds, then briefly off). Evacuate all occupants and investigate
for smoke or fire. Make sure that all occupants know the difference between
the Burglary Alarm tone and the Fire Alarm tone.
Burglary Alarms
Burglary alarms are the second priority. When a burglary point activates,
your Command Center emits a Burglary Alarm tone. Ensure that all
occupants know the difference between the Burglary Alarm tone and the
Fire Alarm tone.
The Command Center display shows each burglary point that went into
alarm by flashing the point number (up to Point 16).
Fire Trouble Events
When a fire trouble (such as a loose wire) occurs, your Command Center
emits a Trouble tone.
The Command Center’s Status indicator is on steady. See page 29, “Check
System Troubles,” for more information on determining the nature of the
trouble.
Non-Fire Trouble Events
When a trouble event such as a low battery condition occurs, your
Command Center emits a Trouble tone.
The Command Center’s Status indicator is on steady. See page 29, “Check
System Troubles,” for information on determining the nature of the trouble.

How Your System Reports Alarms
Your security system may be programmed to automatically disconnect
your telephone when sending reports to your security company. Once the
report is complete, the system returns the telephone to normal operation
(verify with your installing company).
Your system makes repeated attempts to send reports to your security
company. If your system fails to report, the Command Center signals a
system trouble. See page 29, “Check System Troubles,” for more information
on determining the nature of the trouble.
If your telephone service is interrupted, your security system
cannot send reports to your security company unless it has an
alternate means of transmitting them.
Silence Alarms
When there is an alarm, the alarm tone sounds and the point(s) in alarm
illuminate on the display (up to Point 16). If you enter your passcode before
the system dials your security company, the alarm report is aborted.

Enter your passcode to silence the alarm and turn the system off (if it
was turned on). An alarm report will be sent if it is not acknowledged
in time.
2.
Press and hold the [Cmd] key to remove the alarms (flashing point
numbers) from the Command Center display. See “View Alarm

To force arm the system All On or Part On with doubled Exit Delay
time and no exit tone, press and hold [All On] or [Part On] until the
Cmd LED lights (after one second approximately). The faulted point’s
LED indicator remains on. Press [All On] or [Part On] again. If the

force-armed. Once the panel is armed, the Cmd indicator turns off.
The system ‘forces’ the faulted points on. As long as they remain
faulted they do not provide protection. If they return to normal before
the system is turned off they provide protection and are capable of
starting alarm events. If a point becomes faulted after the exit delay
begins, the Command Center displays the faulted point. If the point
remains faulted at the end of exit delay, it will start an alarm event.

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:
• If sirens or horns are placed outside the hearing range of people in
remote areas of the building or in areas which are frequently closed off,
they do not provide the intended protection.
• If intruders gain access through unprotected points of entry, the system
will not detect their entrance.
• If intruders have the technical means of bypassing, jamming, or
disconnecting all or part of the system, they will not be detected.
• If the AC power supply is OFF and the back up battery is either missing
or dead, sensors will not detect intrusion.
• Smoke detectors cannot detect smoke in chimneys, walls, or roofs, or
smoke blocked by a closed door. They may not detect smoke or fire on
a level of the building different from the one on which they are located.
Smoke detectors may 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 phone lines are out of service, reports from the security system to the
security company cannot be sent. Telephone lines are vulnerable to
compromise by several means. Inadequate maintenance and failure to
test are the most common causes of alarm failure. It is strongly
recommended that you test your system once a week to be sure that all
system components are working properly. Although having a security
system may make you eligible for reduced insurance premiums, the
system is no substitute for insurance. Warning devices cannot
compensate you for loss of life or property.

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, the
following program should be implemented.
1.
Minimize fire hazards. Smoking in bed, cleaning with flammable liquids
such as gasoline, leaving children home alone, and using unsafe
holiday decorations are some of the common causes of household
fire.
2.
Install a fire alarm system. The primary purpose of this system is to
protect lives by giving the earliest possible warning of danger.
3.
A smoke detector should be provided to protect each sleeping area
in a home.
4.
Practice an escape plan. Because there may be very little time
between detection of a fire and the time it becomes deadly, it is
important that every member of the family understand how to quickly
evacuate according to the plan.
5.
Plan both primary and alternate escape routes. Since stairwells and
hallways may be blocked during a fire, exiting through a bedroom
window must be a part of the escape plan. If the sleeping area is
above the ground floor, install a means of safely descending outside
the building if one does not already exist.
6.
As a part of this plan, all family members should arrange to meet at a
location away from the house (such as a neighbor’s house) so you
will know that everyone is accounted for.
7.
If it is determined that the alarm was accidentally sounded, the bell
should be silenced, the detectors reset, and your security company
notified immediately that there is no emergency situation.

Maintenance and Service
This security system requires very little maintenance, however, you should
test the system weekly to ensure it is working properly. A test schedule
and maintenance program can be arranged. If you notice a change in
operation during normal use or testing, call for service as soon as possible.
Do not attempt to repair the control panel, Command Centers, or detectors
yourself.
See the information box on page 2 for security company, contact and
installation information.
Power Failure
If the Command Center indicates a power failure, and you have power in
the rest of your premises, there may be a problem with the electrical
transformer or circuit breaker supplying power to your security control
panel. First, check to be sure that the transformer is securely plugged
into the electrical outlet. If it appears to be damaged in any way, do not
attempt to repair it. Call your security company for service.
See the information box on page 2 for transformer information.
If the transformer is plugged in, check the circuit breaker supplying power
to the outlet. If the breaker is tripped, check the appliances on the circuit
for signs of electrical problems. Make sure someone has not intentionally
turned the breaker off. When all is clear, reset the breaker.
See the information box on page 2 for the circuit breaker number.
How to Clean the Command Center
If your Command Center gets dirty, apply a household glass cleaner to a
clean cloth or paper towel and wipe the surface. Do not spray any liquid
directly onto the Command Center. It could run inside the case and damage
electrical circuits.
