SYSTEM OVE
OVERVIEW
RVIEW
Features
General Information
This system offers you three forms of protection: burglary, fire, and emergency, depending on the
configuration of your system. The system consists of a master keypad for controlling system operation,
various wireless sensors that provide perimeter and interior burglary protection, and optional smoke or
combustion detectors to provide early fire warning. In addition, optional wireless keypads may have
been installed to allow you to control the system away from the master keypad. The system may also be
controlled from a remote telephone and can be used as a speaker phone.
The system uses microcomputer technology to monitor all protection zones and system status, display
appropriate information on the keypad display, and initiate appropriate alarms. Your system may also
have been programmed to automatically send alarm or status messages over the phone lines to a
central alarm monitoring station, and may also be capable of two-way voice communication with the
central station.
The user features of this security system are listed below. Ask your installer which features
have been programmed for your system.
• STAY and AWAY arming modes: By using these modes you can protect either the perimeter only,
or the entire premises.
• 3 panic key functions: Designated keys allow you to manually activate fire, personal emergency, or
silent alarms. Refer to the PANIC KEYS section for detailed information.
• Paging feature: If programmed by your installer this feature alerts you to certain system conditions
by displaying code numbers that indicate the type of condition that has occurred. In addition,
pressing the AUX key can send a predefined message to your pager, if programmed to do so (see AUX
key function below). Refer to the PAGING FEATURE section for detailed information.
• Follow me system announcements: Allows the LYNXR-EN to dial a number, programmed by
your installer, and deliver system announcements.
• Follow me reminder announcements: Allows the LYNXR-EN to dial a number, that you have
specified, at a programmed time and day and deliver a message programmed by your installer.
• Real-time clock: Keypad displays current time. Refer to the CLOCK/CALENDAR section for
procedures for setting the time.
• Voice announcement of system status: The master keypad’s built-in speaker announces system
status at the press of a key. Refer to the CHECKING SYSTEM STATUS section for detailed
information.
• Message center: The system allows recording and play back of brief messages. Refer to the
RECORDING/PLAYBACK MESSAGES section for procedures.
• Device activation: Designated keys allow you to turn lights and/or other devices on and off. In
addition, some devices (e.g., a light) may be programmed to activate automatically as a result of a
system event such as an alarm or trouble condition. Refer to the USING POWERLINE CARRIER
DEVICE COMMANDS section for detailed information.
–5–
SYSTEM OVERVIEW
Features
• AUX key function: Designated key lets you activate a predefined series of keystrokes with a single
press of the AUX key plus user code, or manually send a pager message. It will also allow you to
manually send a voice message to phone number that has been programmed by your installer. Ask
your installer which of these features has been assigned to the AUX key in your LYNXR-EN. Refer
to the AUX FUNCTION section for detailed information.
• Scheduling feature: Allows you to schedule the automatic activation or deactivation of X-10 devices
or program events (e.g. alarm clock, reminder, and latch key).
• Two-way voice: Allows the central station to listen, talk to or conduct two-way conversations with
individuals on the premises Refer to the TWO-WAY VOICE section for detailed information.
• Phone Control: Provides a remote interactive phone capability that permits access to the security
system from any off-site touch-tone telephone.
• Speaker Phone Operation: The system is capable of operating as a speaker phone allowing hands
free telephone conversation.
• Security Codes: The system is capable of supporting an Installer code, Master user code and six
additional User codes. Refer to the SECURITY CODES section for detailed information.

SYSTEM OVERVIEW
General Operation
Zones
Your system's sensing devices have been assigned to various "zones." For example, the sensing device
on your entry/exit door may have been assigned to zone 01, sensing devices on windows in the master
bedroom to zone 02, and so on. These numbers appear on the display when an alarm or trouble
condition occurs.
UL
LYNXR-EN is not intended for UL985 Household Fire applications unless a 24-hour
backup battery (P/N LYNXRCHKIT-HC) is installed.
Fire Protection
The fire protection portion of your security system (if used) is always active and will sound an alarm if
a fire condition is detected. Refer to the FIRE ALARM SYSTEM section for important information
concerning fire protection, smoke detectors and planning emergency exit routes from the premises.
Burglary Protection
Your system provides two modes of burglary protection: STAY and AWAY. STAY mode protects the
perimeter only, allowing you to freely move within inside the premises. AWAY mode protects the entire
system. Both modes provide an entry delay time that allows you to reenter the premises without setting
off an alarm. For additional security, you can turn the entry delay off when arming the system by using
the NO DELAY key in combination with the desired arming key. The system also allows you to bypass
selected zones before arming the system, if desired. Refer to the BYPASSING PROTECTION ZONES
section. The system also provides a CHIME mode, for alerting users to the opening of protected doors
and windows while the system is disarmed.
You must turn on ("arm") the burglary protection portion of your system before it will sense burglary
alarms. To arm the system, enter your user code then press the desired arming key (AWAY or STAY).
Refer to the ARMING THE SYSTEM section for detailed procedures and information.
Security Codes
At the time of installation, you were assigned a personal 4-digit security or “master user” code. You
must enter the user code when arming and disarming the system, and when performing other system
functions. As an additional security feature, other users who do not need to know your code can be
assigned up to 6 different security codes. Refer to the SECURITY CODES section for procedures on
adding security codes to the system.
Alarms
When an alarm occurs, the keypad and external sounders will sound for about 15-seconds, and the
keypad will display the zone(s) causing the alarm. After 15-seconds, the siren stops temporarily and
voice announcements of the zones in alarm begins. When these zones have been announced, the siren
sounds again and the cycle repeats itself, until the system is disarmed (code + OFF) or
–7–
SYSTEM OVERVIEW
General Operation
until alarm bell timeout occurs. If your system is connected to a central monitoring station, an alarm
message will be sent. To stop the alarm sounding, simply disarm the system. The zone(s) causing the
alarm remain displayed indicating memory of alarm. Refer to the DISARMING THE SYSTEM section
for information about clearing the memory of alarm display
Two-Way Voice Feature
The LYNXR-EN supports voice dialog between an operator at the central station and an individual at
the premises. This feature allows the central station to listen, talk to or conduct a two-way conversation
with an individual(s) at the premises and allows the operator to gather information about the nature
and location of the alarm that may be helpful in responding to fire, police or rescue departments. If the
Two-way Voice Feature has been programmed and an alarm condition is detected the system sends an
alarm message to the central station. After acknowledgement is received, a “listen in to follow” message
is sent to the central station. By responding to this message the central station operator can enter
commands that allow him to initiate a 5-minute voice session. The options allow the operator to enter
the following modes:
• Talk: Allows the operator to speak to individuals at the premises through the system speaker.
• VOX (2-way voice): Allows the operator to hold a two-way (speak and listen) conversation with
individuals at the premises.
• Listen: Allows the operator to listen to any activity at the premises through the system microphone.
If a subsequent zone is violated during a voice session, the system will terminate the session and
process the alarm. During the voice session, the ARMED (red) and READY (green) LEDs will
alternately blink in the Talk and VOX Modes but not during Listen Mode.

SECURING THE PREMISES
Arming the System
Arming in Stay Mode
Use this mode when you are staying home, but expect someone to use the entrance door later. Close all
protected perimeter windows and doors before arming. The green READY indicator on the keypad
should be lit if the system is ready to be armed.
+ STAY
To arm in STAY mode:
or press and hold STAY **
Your User code**
** See Quick Arming paragraph.
The keypad beeps three times and displays the armed STAY message. The red ARMED indicator lights
and the system announces “armed STAY–exit now.”
When armed in STAY mode, the system will sound an alarm if a protected door or window is opened,
but you may otherwise move freely throughout the premises. Late arrivals can enter through the
entrance door without causing an alarm, but they must disarm the system within the entry delay
period or an alarm will occur.
Restarting Exit Delay While System Armed
Ask your installer if this feature is active for your system. If active, you can restart the exit delay at
any time after arming in STAY mode. This is useful if you wish to open the entry/exit door to let
someone in after arming the system, and avoids having to disarm the system and then re-arm it again.
To restart exit delay while system is armed in STAY mode: Press STAY key
Arming In Away Mode
Use this mode when no one will be staying on the premises. Close all protected perimeter windows and
doors before arming. The green READY indicator on the keypad should be lit if the system is ready to
be armed.
+ AWAY
To arm in AWAY mode:
or press and hold AWAY **
Your User code **
** See Quick Arming paragraph.
The keypad beeps twice, or beeps continuously if exit warning has been programmed for your system,
and displays the armed AWAY message. The red ARMED indicator lights and the system announces
“armed AWAY–exit now.”
When armed in AWAY mode, the system will sound an alarm if a protected door or window is opened,
or if any movement is detected inside the premises. You may leave through the entrance door during
the exit delay period without causing an alarm. You may also re-enter through the entrance door, but
you must disarm the system within the entry delay period or an alarm will occur.

SECURING THE PREMISES
Arming the System
Arming the System With No Delay
Use NO DELAY with STAY mode when you are staying home and do not expect anyone to use the
entrance door.
Use NO DELAY with AWAY mode when the premises will be vacant for extended periods of time such
as vacations, etc.
When armed with NO DELAY, the system will sound an alarm if a protected door or window is opened,
including the entrance door. You may leave through the entrance door during the exit delay period
without causing an alarm, but an alarm will sound as soon as someone reenters.

SECURING THE PREMISES
Entry/Exit Delays
Exit Delay
Exit delay begins immediately after arming the system, and gives you time to leave through the
designated exit door without setting off an alarm. A slow beeping will sound throughout the exit delay
period, if programmed.
Exit Alarms
Exit Alarm Active
To minimize false alarms sent to the alarm monitoring company, your system may have been
programmed for this feature. Ask your installer if Exit Alarm is active for your system.
Whenever you arm the system, the exit delay begins. If an entry/exit door or interior zone is faulted
when the exit delay ends (e.g., exit door left open), the system sounds an alarm and starts the entry
delay timer. If you disarm the system before the entry delay ends, the alarm sound stops and the
message "CA" is displayed on the keypad, along with a zone number indicating the faulted zone. No
message is sent to the alarm monitoring company. To clear the exit alarm condition, the open zone
must be made re-secured; to clear the display, enter your code plus OFF.
If you do not disarm the system before the entry delay ends, and an entry/exit door or interior zone is
still open, the alarm sound continues and an "exit alarm" message is sent to the alarm monitoring
company. The message "EA" is displayed on the keypad, along with a zone number indicating the
faulted zone. To stop the alarm, the system must be disarmed (your code plus OFF); to clear the
display, enter your code plus OFF a second time. An exit alarm also results if an entry/exit door or
interior zone is faulted within two minutes after the end of the exit delay.
Entry Delay
Entry Delays give you time to disarm the system when you re-enter through the designated entrance
door. You must disarm the system before the entry delay period ends, or an alarm will occur. The
keypad beeps during the entry delay period, reminding you to disarm the system. There are two entry
delays (if programmed). The first is for your primary entrance and the second can be used for a
secondary entrance, where a longer delay is required to walk to the keypad to disarm the system.
You can also arm the system with no entry delay at all by using the NO DELAY key when arming. This
can provide greater security while on the premises or while away for extended periods of time. See
ARMING THE SYSTEM section for procedure.
See your installer for delay times programmed for your system.

SECURING THE PREMISES
Disarming the System
Use the OFF key to disarm the system and to silence alarm and trouble sounds. See the SUMMARY
OF AUDIBLE NOTIFICATION section for information, which will help you to distinguish between fire
and burglary alarm sounds.
IMPORTANT: If you return and the main burglary sounder is on, DO NOT enter the premises, but
call the police from a nearby safe location. If you return after an alarm has occurred and the main
sounder has shut itself off, the keypad will beep rapidly upon entering. This indicates that an alarm
has occurred during your absence and an intruder may still be on the premises. LEAVE
IMMEDIATELY and CONTACT THE POLICE from a nearby safe location.
+ OFF
To disarm the system and silence burglary alarms:
Your user code
The READY indicator will light (if no alarms have occurred while armed) and the keypad will beep once
to confirm that the system is disarmed.
Memory of Alarm
If an alarm occurs, the keypad displays the zone number (s) that caused the alarm and the type of
alarm (e.g., “FIRE ALARM”). These messages remain displayed until cleared by a user.
To clear the display, note the zone number displayed and enter an OFF sequence (enter your security
code and press the OFF key).
If the READY indicator is blinking, go to the displayed zone and correct the fault (close windows, etc.).
If the fault cannot be corrected, notify your alarm company.

Bypassing Protection Zones
Bypassing Individual Zones
Use the BYPASS key when you want to arm your system with one or more zones intentionally
unprotected. Bypassed zones are unprotected and will not cause an alarm when violated while your
system is armed. All bypasses are removed when an OFF sequence (security code plus OFF) is
performed. Bypasses are also removed if the arming procedure that follows the bypass command is
not successful.
The system will not allow fire zones to be bypassed.
The system must be disarmed first.
+ BYPASS
To bypass a zone(s):
+ 2-digit zone number(s) for zone(s) to be

bypassed (e.g., 01, 02, 03, etc.)
Important! All single-digit numbers must be preceded by a zero (for example, enter 01 for zone 1).
The keypad will provide a confirmation beep and display the word “BYPASS” along with each bypassed
zone number. Wait for these zones to be displayed, to be sure that intended zones are bypassed.
Arm the system as usual when the keypad displays the READY LED on steady.
Forced Bypass
Your system may allow you to easily bypass all open (faulted) zones without having to enter zone
numbers individually. Ask your installer if this feature is active.

Arm the system as usual when the keypad displays the READY LED on steady.
Displaying Bypassed Zones
The system allows you to determine what zones have been previously bypassed. Bypassed zones can be
displayed only when the system is disarmed, and when the “BYPASS” message described above is
displayed.

Types of Panic Alarms
A silent emergency/silent alarm sends an alarm signal to the alarm monitoring company,† but
there will be no audible alarms or visual displays.
An audible emergency/audible alarm sends an emergency message to the alarm monitoring
company† and sounds a loud, steady alarm at your keypad and at any external sounders that may be
connected (“ALARM” plus a zone number are also displayed).
A personal emergency/aux alarm sends an emergency message to the alarm monitoring company†
and sounds at keypads, but not at external sounders. (“ALARM” plus a zone number are also
displayed).
A supervised fire alarm sends a fire alarm message to the alarm monitoring company† and uniquely
activates keypad and any external sounders (“FIRE ALARM” plus a zone number are also displayed).
† If your system is connected to an alarm monitoring company
Chime Mode
Your system can be set to alert you to the opening of a door or window, while it is disarmed, by using
CHIME mode. When activated, three beeps will sound at the keypad whenever a protected perimeter
door is opened and the zone voice descriptor will be announced. Pressing the STATUS key will display
the open protection points.
Note that the Chime mode can be turned on only when the system is disarmed.

USER FUNCTIONS
Paging Feature
Automatic Paging
If the Paging feature has been programmed for your system, your pager will respond to certain
conditions as they occur in your system by displaying a message that indicates the type of condition
that has occurred. The message appears in a 7-digit format explained below. The system can also be
programmed to send up to 16 additional digits that will appear in front of the 7-digit message. These 16
digits may consist of a PIN number or special digits needed by the pager, account number, pauses, or
any other special characters you may choose (for example, you may want to use a special character code
to distinguish between security system messages and usual pager messages). See your installer if these
additional characters are desired.
Code Format
The Pager Code takes the following form: (AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA) EEE-00NN
AAA… = Optional 16 digits, programmed by your installer.
EEE = 3-digit number describing the event that has occurred, as follows:
911 = Alarm (00NN following indicates the zone that caused the alarm)
101 = Open, system disarmed (00NN following indicates user number)
102 = Close, system armed (00NN following indicates user number)
811 = Trouble (00NN following indicates the zone that caused the trouble)
00NN = First two digits are always 00, followed by 2-digit user or zone number, depending
on the type of event that occurred. If NN = 00, it can mean an AC loss has occurred,
the system battery is low, or a 5827 wireless keypad battery is low. The Master
Keypad will indicate the specific condition.
Examples:
Pager displays: 911–0004
This indicates your system is reporting an alarm (911) due to a fault on zone 4 (0004).
Pager displays: 101–0005
This indicates that your system is reporting an open/disarm (101) by user 5 (0005).
Manual Paging
In addition, your system may have been programmed to send a unique pager message when the AUX
key is pressed (see AUX FUNCTION section for alternate function of this key). The actual message sent
is 999-9999 (the hyphen may not appear, depending on your pager service). This code can be used to
alert the person with the pager to whatever meaning you pre-arrange (e.g., “call home”). Ask your
installer if this has been done for your system.
To manually send the pager message, if programmed: AUX (hold until 4 beeps sound)

USER FUNCTIONS
“Follow Me” Announcement Feature
“Follow Me” Reminder and System Announcements
If the “Follow Me” Announcement feature has been programmed your system will automatically dial a
telephone number and deliver a voice message. The two different types of “Follow Me” messages include
system and reminder announcements.
System Announcements
LYNX can be programmed to trigger “Follow Me” system announcements by one or a combination of
the following events:
•
Alarm
•
Trouble
•
Arming/Disarming (by a keyfob or users 5-8*)
*see Security Codes section for user code descriptions.
Ask your installer about the events that trigger “Follow Me” system announcements.
“Follow me” system announcements are delivered to a phone number that has been programmed by
your installer. The voice message is a repeatable system status message (i.e. “Disarm Ready to Arm”
when system was disarmed; “Armed Away” when system was armed; “Alarm Front Door” when an
alarm occurred, etc). In addition, a special repeatable voice message (“System, System…”) can be
triggered manually by pressing the AUX key on the keypad and holding it down for 4 seconds.
NOTE: This is similar to the manual paging feature (see Paging Feature for details).
Reminder Announcements
The “Follow me” reminder announcement is triggered by the scheduler if Reminder Announcements
has been chosen as Event Identifier (see Scheduling User interface for details).
NOTE: The “Follow me” reminder can only be used if the “Follow me” or Pager feature has been
programmed by your installer.
The “Follow me” reminder voice message is the same reminder that is played through a local speaker.
The reminder should be recorded by your installer. The “Follow me” reminder message will be delivered
to a phone number that your installer has programmed or that you can program by yourself. If the
“Follow me” reminder phone number has not been programmed, or has been deleted, the reminder is
announced through a local speaker only.
After the “Follow me” system or reminder announcement is delivered you can terminate it by pressing
any key on the telephone keypad. If the message is not acknowleged/terminated LYNXR-EN will
attempt to deliver the message and will redial the “Follow Me” telephone number a maximum of eight
times.

Speaker Phone Feature
If this feature has been programmed the LYNXR-EN is capable of operating as a speaker phone.
During speaker phone operation the system will provide the following functions:
•
All function/event processing will continue to operate, but there will be no announcements.
•
The ARMED (red) and READY (green) LEDs will alternately blink.
•
“PH” will be displayed.
NOTE: The system will enter the Speaker phone mode even if an alarm or trouble is stored in the system memory.
Although “PH” may not appear, the LEDs will alternately blink indicating you are currently in the
Speaker Phone mode.
!

speaker phone is not functional.
The system will not enter speaker phone mode and LYNXR-EN will not ring if:
•
The feature has not been programmed.
•
A report is being sent.
•
An audible alarm is present.
•
An announcement is being made or a recorded message is being played back.
•
A message is being recorded.
•
If the system is in test or sniffer mode.
•
AC power is not present
The speaker phone will be aborted if:
•
A report must be sent.
•
An audible alarm or trouble has ocurred.
•
AC power is lost.
Using the Speaker Phone Feature
When the LYNXR-EN is operating in the speaker phone mode the system keypad functions as a
telephone keypad and the only security keypad functions that will remain enabled are the panic keys
and the speaker volume control. (refer to Volume Adjustment section) You may adjust the volume
before entering speaker phone mode or after dialing the desired number. In the speaker phone mode, if
a zone is violated and has triggered an entry/exit delay, the system will automatically change the
keypad from telephone to security mode. This allows the user to disarm the system or take other
appropriate actions in the security mode without interrupting the telephone session. To regain
telephone keypad control (i.e.: to enter an account number or menu selection) you will need to
reactivate the telephone keypad.

FIRE ALARM SYSTEM
SYSTEM (If Installed)
General Information
UL
LYNXR-EN is not intended for UL985 Household Fire applications unless a 24-hour backup battery
(P/N LYNXRCHKIT-HC) is installed.
General
Your fire alarm system (if installed) is active 24 hours a day, providing continuous protection. In the
event of an emergency, the installed smoke and heat detectors will automatically activate your security
system, triggering a loud, intermittent sound from the keypad. An intermittent sound will also be
produced by optional exterior sounders, and interlaced with the voice descriptor, sounding every 15
seconds. A “FIRE” message will appear at your keypad and remain on until you silence and clear the
alarm display.

National Fire Protection Association’s
Smoke Detector Recommendations
UL
LYNXR-EN is not intended for UL985 Household Fire applications unless a 24-hour backup battery
(P/N LYNXRCHKIT-HC) is installed.
With regard to the number and placement of smoke and heat detectors, we subscribe to the
recommendations contained in the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) Standard #74 noted
below.
Early warning fire detection is best achieved by the installation of fire detection equipment in all rooms
and areas of the household. The equipment should be installed as follows: A smoke detector installed
outside of each separate sleeping area, in the immediate vicinity of the bedrooms and on each
additional story of the family living unit, including basements and excluding crawl spaces and
unfinished attics.
In addition, the NFPA recommends that you install heat or smoke detectors in the living room, dining
room, bedroom(s), kitchen, hallway(s), attic, furnace room, utility and storage rooms, basements and
attached garages.

FIRE ALARM SYSTEM
Emergency Evacuation
UL
LYNXR-EN is not intended for UL985 Household Fire applications unless a 24-hour backup battery
(P/N LYNXRCHKIT-HC) is installed.
Establish and regularly practice a plan of escape in the event of fire. The following steps are
recommended by the National Fire Protection Association:
Position your detector or your interior and/or exterior sounders
so that they can be heard by all occupants.
2.
Determine two means of escape from each room. One path of
escape should lead to the door that permits normal exit from
the building. The other should be an alternative escape, such
as a window, should your path to that door be unpassable.
Station an escape ladder at such windows if there is a long
drop to the ground.
3.
4.
Sketch a floor plan of the building. Show windows, doors, stairs
and rooftops that can be used to escape. Indicate escape routes
for each room. Keep these routes free from obstruction and post
copies of the escape routes in every room.
Assure that all bedroom doors are shut while you are asleep.
This will prevent deadly smoke from entering while you escape.
5.
Try the door. If the door is hot, check your alternate escape
route. If the door is cool, open it cautiously. Be prepared to
slam the door if smoke or heat rushes in.
6.
When smoke is present, crawl on the ground. Do not walk
upright, since smoke rises and may overcome you. Clearer air
is near the floor.
7.
Escape quickly; don't panic.
8.
Establish a place outdoors, away from your house, where
everyone can meet and then take steps to contact the
authorities and account for those missing. Choose someone to
assure that nobody returns to the house — many die going
back.

SYSTEM FUNCTIONS
Security Codes
General Information
For additional security you (the Master User Code) can assign secondary user codes to individual users
enabling them to perform specific system functions. These secondary users are identified by "user
numbers" when their codes are assigned. You can assign up to 6 user codes (2-digit user numbers 0308). Note that the master user is the only one who can assign codes to secondary users, and is
designated user no. 02; user no. 01 is the Installer’s code.
All codes can be used interchangeably when performing system functions (a system armed with one
user's code can be disarmed by another user's code), with the exception of the Babysitter Code described
below.
Babysitter Code (User 07): This code can be used to arm the system, but cannot disarm the system
unless the system was armed with this code. This code is typically assigned to someone (such as a
babysitter) who needs to arm/disarm the system only at certain times. The Babysitter Code is assigned
to User 07.
Duress Code (User 08): This feature is intended for use when you are forced to disarm or arm the
system under threat. When used, the system will act normally, but can silently notify the alarm
monitoring company of your situation, if that service has been provided. Duress Code is assigned to
User 08.
The Duress Code is useful only when the system is connected to an alarm monitoring
company.
To Add/Delete a User or Change a User's Code
Changing the Master User Code
Follow the procedure for changing a user's code, but enter User No. 02 and enter the new code twice.
IMPORTANT: Temporary users of the system (e.g., babysitters, cleaning staff) should not be shown
how to use any system function they do not need to know, such as bypassing protection zones for
example.
Sequential key depressions for all steps in a procedure must be made within 2 seconds of one another,
or else the entire entry is aborted and must be repeated from its beginning.
+ CODE Key + user number (03-08) + user’s code
Add a user code:
Master user code
+ CODE Key + user number (03-08)
Delete a user code:
Master user code
Wait (about 3 seconds) until the keypad beeps once before pressing any other key. The code is
automatically deleted.

SYSTEM FUNCTIONS
Testing the System (to be conducted weekly)
Entering Test Mode
The TEST key puts your system into the Test mode, which allows each protection point to be checked
for proper operation. The keypad sounds a single beep every 45 seconds as a reminder that the system
is in the Test mode.
NOTE: An alarm message will not be sent to your alarm monitoring company during the following tests.
Disarm the system and close all protected windows, doors, etc. The “READY” indicator should be lit.
+ TEST key
Enter:
Your user code
WATCH. All LCD segments will light for 3 seconds.
LISTEN. The external sounder should sound for 2 seconds and then turn off. If the sounder does not
sound, notify your service company.
FAULT ZONES. Open each protected door and window in turn and listen for three beeps from the
keypad, followed by the zone’s Voice Descriptor, if it is programmed. Identification of each faulted
protection point should appear on the display. The display will clear when the door or window is closed.
Walk in front of any interior motion detectors (if used) and listen for three beeps and/or voice
descriptors, if programmed. The identification of the detector should appear on the display when it is
activated, and its voice descriptor will be announced (if programmed). The display will clear when no
motion is detected. Note that if wireless motion detectors are used, there is a 3-minute delay between
activations. This is to conserve battery life.
To test all smoke detectors, follow the manufacturer's instructions. The identification of each detector
should appear on the display when each is activated.
If a problem is experienced with any protection point (no confirming sounds, no display), notify your
service company.
When all protection points have been checked and are intact (closed), there should be no zone
identification numbers displayed on the keypad.

LOW BAT
Accompanied by a once-per-45 seconds beeping at the keypad, indicates a low battery
(with zone no.) condition exists in the wireless transmitter displayed.†
(no zone no.)
LOW BAT
Accompanied by a once-per-45 seconds beeping at the keypad, indicates a low battery
(with zone 00) condition exists in a wireless keypad.†
† Notify your service company.
Routine Care
• Treat the components of your security system as you would any other electrical equipment. Do not
slam sensor-protected doors or windows.
• Keep dust from accumulating on the keypad and all protective sensors, particularly on motion
sensors and smoke detectors.
• The keypad and sensors should be cleaned carefully with a dry soft cloth. Do not spray water or
any other fluid on the units.

SYSTEM FUNCTIONS
Maintaining your system
The components of your security system are designed to be as maintenance-free as possible. To make
sure that your system is in working condition, do the following:
1. Test your system weekly.
2. Test your system after any alarm occurs (see the TESTING THE SYSTEM section).
Low Battery Conditions in Wireless Sensors
Each wireless sensor in your system has a 9-volt or 3-volt battery. The system detects low battery
conditions in wireless sensors, including smoke detectors, personal emergency transmitter, and the
portable wireless keypad, and displays a “LOW BAT” message on the master keypad, which also beeps.
A low battery in a wireless keypad is detected as soon as one of its keys is pressed, and the master
keypad (e.g. Ademco 5827) will display “00”. In addition, a wireless smoke detector with a low battery
also emits a "chirp" sound approximately once every 20–30 seconds, identifying itself as the smoke
detector with the weak battery.
NOTE:
A low battery message means that battery replacement in the indicated sensor(s) is due within 30 days.
In the meantime, a sensor with a low battery is still operational.
To silence Low Battery Warning Tones at the Keypad: Press the OFF key.
The low battery message display will remain on as a reminder. When you replace the weak battery
with a fresh one, the sensor will send a "good battery" signal to the control when the sensor is activated
(opening/closing of door, window, etc.).
+ OFF key.
To clear the “LOW BAT” message enter:
Your user code
When replacing batteries, use only those recommended by your installer.
Alkaline batteries provide a minimum of 1 year of operation, and in most units and applications, provide 2–4 years of
service. 3-volt lithium batteries may provide from 4-7 years of operation. Actual battery life will depend on the
environment in which the sensor is used, the number of signals that the transmitter in the sensor has had to send, and
the specific type of sensor. Factors such as humidity, high or low temperatures, and large swings in temperature may all
lead to the reduction of actual battery life in an installation.
Changing the LYNXR-EN System Battery
In the event of an AC power loss, the LYNXR-EN is powered by a rechargeable, nickel-metal hydride
battery pack. The battery pack should be replaced when a “LOW BAT” message with no zone number is
displayed.
NOTE:
The battery pack (P/N LYNXRCHKIT-SC or LYNXRCHKIT-HC) should be changed every four
years and must be replaced by a qualified service technician.
Following battery pack replacement, rechargeable batteries may take up to 48 hours to charge. The
“LOW BAT” message may be displayed after one minute, however it should clear within 4 hours or by
entering Test Mode.

IN THE EVENT OF TELEPHONE OPERATIONAL PROBLEMS
In the event of telephone operational problems, disconnect the control by removing the plug from the
RJ31X (CA38A in Canada) telephone wall jack. We recommend that your certified installer
demonstrate disconnecting the phones on installation of the system. Do not disconnect the phone
connection inside the control/communicator. Doing so will result in the loss of your phone lines. If the
regular phone works correctly after the control/communicator has been disconnected from the phone
lines, the control/communicator has a problem and should be returned for repair. If upon disconnection
of the control/communicator, there is still a problem on the line, notify the telephone company that they
have a problem and request prompt repair service. The user may not under any circumstances (in or
out of warranty) attempt any service or repairs to the system. It must be returned to the factory or an
authorized service agency for all repairs.

WARNING!
THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS ALARM SYSTEM
While this system is an advanced design security system, it does not offer guaranteed protection against burglary or fire or other
emergency. Any alarm system, whether commercial or residential, is subject to compromise or failure to warn for a variety of
reasons. For example:
• Intruders may gain access through unprotected openings or have the technical sophistication to bypass an alarm sensor or
disconnect an alarm warning device.
• Intrusion detectors (e.g. passive infrared detectors), smoke detectors, and many other sensing devices will not work without
power. Battery operated devices will not work without batteries, with dead batteries, or if the batteries are not put in properly.
Devices powered solely by AC will not work if their AC power supply is cut off for any reason, however briefly.
• Signals sent by wireless transmitters may be blocked or reflected by metal before they reach the alarm receiver. Even if the
signal path has been recently checked during a weekly test, blockage can occur if a metal object is moved into the path.
• A user may not be able to reach a panic or emergency button quickly enough.
• While smoke detectors have played a key role in reducing residential fire deaths in the United States, they may not activate or
provide early warning for a variety of reasons in as many as 35% of all fires, according to data published by the Federal
Emergency Management Agency. Some of the reasons smoke detectors used in conjunction with this System may not work are
as follows. Smoke detectors may have been improperly installed and positioned. Smoke detectors may not sense fires that start
where smoke cannot reach the detectors, such as in chimneys, in walls, or roofs, or on the other side of closed doors. Smoke
detectors also may not sense a fire on another level of a residence or building. A second floor detector, for example, may not
sense a first floor or basement fire. Moreover, smoke detectors have sensing limitations. No smoke detector can sense every kind
of fire every time. In general, detectors may not always warn about fires caused by carelessness and safety hazards like smoking
in bed, violent explosions, escaping gas, improper storage of flammable materials, overloaded electrical circuits, children playing
with matches, or arson. Depending upon the nature of the fire and/or the locations of the smoke detectors, the detector, even if it
operates as anticipated, may not provide sufficient warning to allow all occupants to escape in time to prevent injury or death.
• Passive Infrared Motion Detectors can only detect intrusion within the designed ranges as diagrammed in their installation
manual. Passive Infrared Detectors do not provide volumetric area protection. They do create multiple beams of protection, and
intrusion can only be detected in unobstructed areas covered by those beams. They cannot detect motion or intrusion that takes
place behind walls, ceilings, floors, closed doors, glass partitions, glass doors, or windows. Mechanical tampering, masking,
painting or spraying of any material on the mirrors, windows or any part of the optical system can reduce their detection ability.
Passive Infrared Detectors sense changes in temperature; however, as the ambient temperature of protected area approaches
the temperature range of 90° to 105°F, the detection performance can decrease.
• Alarm warning devices such as sirens, bells or horns may not alert people or wake up sleepers if they are located on the other
side of closed or partly open doors. If warning devices sound on a different level of the residence from the bedrooms, then they
are less likely to waken or alert people inside the bedrooms. Even persons who are awake may not hear the warning if the alarm
is muffled from a stereo, radio, air conditioner or other appliance, or by passing traffic. Finally, alarm warning devices, however
loud, may not warn hearing-impaired people or waken deep sleepers.
• Telephone lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a premises to a central monitoring station may be out of service or
temporarily out of service. Telephone lines are also subject to compromise by sophisticated intruders.
• Even if the system responds to the emergency as intended, however, occupants may have insufficient time to protect themselves
from the emergency situation. In the case of a monitored alarm system, authorities may not respond appropriately.
• This equipment, like other electrical devices, is subject to component failure. Even though this equipment is designed to last as
long as 10 years, the electronic components could fail at any time.
The most common cause of an alarm system not functioning when an intrusion or fire occurs is inadequate maintenance. This
alarm system should be tested weekly to make sure all sensors and transmitters are working properly.
Installing an alarm system may make one eligible for lower insurance rates, but an alarm system is not a substitute for insurance.
Homeowners, property owners and renters should continue to act prudently in protecting themselves and continue to insure their
lives and property.
We continue to develop new and improved protection devices. Users of alarm systems owe it to themselves and their loved ones to
learn about these developments.

OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES FOR BREACH OF THIS OR ANY OTHER WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED, OR UPON ANY OTHER BASIS OF LIABILITY WHATSOEVER, EVEN IF THE LOSS OR
DAMAGE IS CAUSED BY THE SELLER'S OWN NEGLIGENCE OR FAULT. Some states do not allow
limitation on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or
consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
Seller does not represent that the product may not be compromised or circumvented; that the product
will prevent any personal injury or property loss by burglary, robbery, fire or otherwise; or that the
product will in all cases provide adequate warning or protection. Buyer understands that a properly
