Security System Components
Your security system is made up of a Control System, various detectors and a number of
optional peripheral devices. This section explains the role of each component in your
system.
Control System
The Control System is the brain of the system. It
communicates with all the devices connected to the
system. For example, in the event of a burglary, a
detector sends a signal to the Control System indicating
that it has sensed motion on the premises. On receiving
this signal, the Control System makes the decision to
report the alarm to your monitoring service and activate
the siren.
Detectors
Detectors are the devices that protect your home, alerting the Control
System when there is a breach in security. Magnetic contacts protect
your doors and windows while motion detectors are able to detect an
intruder moving across its field of view. Vibration and glassbreak
detectors are able to sense low-amplitude vibrations and forced break-in
attempts around vulnerable access points. Additionally, smoke, carbon
monoxide, gas leak and flood detectors can be installed to provide an
early warning in the event of a fire, the presence of dangerous gases or
the potential for flooding.
Keyfobs
Keyfobs are hand-held transmitters that are used to operate the system.
Various keyfobs are available providing a number of functions. For
example, arming/disarming the system and sending panic and medical
assistance alarms.
Keypads
The keypads enable you to communicate with the Control System in
order to perform a number of different functions. The main function you
can perform using a keypad is to arm the system when leaving your
home and to disarm on your return.
Sirens and Strobes
While the Control System includes a built-in internal siren, it is possible
that you also have an external siren and strobes installed. The sirens are
sounded and the strobes are activated during certain alarm conditions
serving to warn you and ward off intruders.

CommPact User Manual
1. Introduction and Overview
1.3.
System Monitoring
When an event occurs within the system, the Control System sends a message to your
monitoring service describing the exact nature of the event. This enables the monitoring
service to take the required action. System monitoring can implement either regular
telephone or cellular communication.
A detector detects. The Control System is alerted. 
An alarm is generated and the
monitoring service is notified.
IMPORTANT: There is a communication delay of 30 seconds in this Control
System for non-fire alarms. This delay can be reduced to 15 seconds or it can be
increased to 45 seconds at the option of the end user in consultation with the
installer. Fire, gas and flood alarms are communicated immediately.
1.4.
Self-Monitoring
15B
In addition to the ability to report to a monitoring service, the system can also send you
and other users notification when an event occurs. This may be in the form of vocal
messages played over the telephone or, if your system supports cellular communication,
you can receive information on system status via SMS. If an alarm occurs on the
premises, you are informed no matter where you are in the world.
1.5.
Telephone Control
16B
DTMF Telecontrol
50B
The CommPact offers a range of “Telecontrol” features that provide remote access via
the telephone (PSTN or Cellular). These features include remote arming/disarming,
PGM output activation/deactivation, siren cancel and Two-Way audio via the Control
System’s built-in microphone and speaker – see p.20, 6 Telecontrol.
The Two-Way Audio features allow you to contact your home directly in the event of an
alarm or simply to check your home while you are away.
SMS Control
51B
Using your cellular phone, you can also send SMS commands to arm/disarm the system,
to turn on/off the PGM output, and get confirmation when the command is received. –
see p.13, 3.5 Arming Tones.

1. Introduction and Overview
1.6.
Vocal Message Annunciation
Vocal message annunciation is an optional feature that, if enabled in programming,
causes the system to play short messages that indicate system status.
1.7.
Web Access
The Web Application provides an interface to your security system from your Internet
browser. Via the Web you can perform a wide range of tasks such as arm/disarm, zone
bypass, and user code management. Additionally, you can set up the contacts whom
you wish to be alerted (by email or text message) when selected events occur.
The application also allows you to check your home at any time either by viewing a
history of recent events that have occurred or by viewing streaming video from
cameras installed on the premises. For further information, see p. 33, Appendix B:

Arming and Disarming
Arming can be defined as activating the system. When the system is armed, it monitors
the zones that are protected by the detector. If a detector senses an intrusion, the system
generates an alarm.
3.1.
Arming Modes
Three arming modes are available: Full, Part and Perimeter. These modes enable you to
arm your system accordingly to suit different circumstances.
You can only disarm all the active arming modes.
Full Arming
Full arming activates the
entire system. This arming
method is used when you
intend to leave your home,
leaving the premises
empty.
Part Arming
This arming method
enables you to arm a
section of your home while
remaining on a different
part of the premises.
Perimeter Arming
Perimeter arming enables
you to activate the
perimeter zones (the
windows and doors of your
home) enabling you to
move freely within the
protected area.
Certain detectors, such as smoke, carbon monoxide, gas and flood detectors, are
always active regardless of system status.
3.2.
Arming the System
Before arming the system, check that all doors and windows are secured so that the
system is ready for arming.
Arming with the Keypad

Telecontrol
The CommPact Control System offers a range of Telecontrol features that provide
remote access via the telephone. These features include Two-Way Audio, remote
arming/disarming and siren cancel.
Two-Way Audio
You may use the Two-Way Audio features to check your home in the event of an alarm
or as an alternative means of communicating with members of your family. For example,
you may wish to call an elderly person who has difficulty reaching the phone. Using its
Two-Way Audio features, the Control System automatically picks up the call and you
can communicate via its built-in microphone and speaker.
6.1.
Calling your Home
You may call your home at any time in order to contact your family, operate your system
or check your home while you are away. This feature is available for both regular
telephone communication and cellular communication.
Making a Call using a Regular Telephone
When your security system shares a telephone line with other devices (e.g. telephone
handsets, an answering machine or fax), it is important that the Control System
distinguish between calls so that it knows when to pick up the relevant call. For this
purpose the CommPact employs a double call method.
To make a call to the Control System using the double call method:
1.
Dial your telephone number.
2.
Wait for two or three rings then hang-up.
3.
Wait at least five seconds and dial the number again; on the second ring, the
Control System picks up and sounds two tones.
Making a Cellular Call to the System
If your system supports cellular communication, it has its own individual telephone
number. Therefore, the double call method is not necessary and you may call the Control
System directly.
Call Procedure
To prevent unauthorized attempts to call your Control System, you must enter a user
code when calling your home – see p. 25, 7.3. User Codes, Code 29.
To call your home:
1.
Call the Control System either using the double call method or directly (see
above); when the Control System picks up, two tones are sounded.
2.
Enter the telecontrol code (Code 29) on your telephone within 15 seconds.
20
CommPact User Manual
6. Telecontrol
3.
Do not enter your user code until you hear the two tones. Any digits entered
before the tones are sounded are disregarded by the system.
A tone is sounded to indicate that the system is ready to receive commands.
The following commands are available:
•
Press “2” for Two-Way Audio.
If the TWA mode is defined as “Simplex” (see p. 22 6.5.
Simplex Mode.), the audio channel opens in Listen mode
(microphone active/speaker mute). To switch to Speak mode,
press “1” on your telephone. To switch back to Listen mode,
press “0” on your telephone.
During the TWA session, you can adjust the speaker
volume using the arrow buttons.
•
•
•
•
•
Press “3" to fully arm the system.
Press "430" to activate PGM output (Unit 30)
Press "530" to deactivate PGM output (Unit 30)
Press “6” to disarm the system.
Press “9” to cancel the siren.
The Arm/Disarm, PGM on/off, and Siren canceling can
also be executed at any time during a Two-Way Audio
session.
Error beeps (three tones) sound in case of a wrong
command.
To clear the last command, press “*” or “#”.
4.
5.
The duration of the call is an option programmed by your installer. Ten
seconds before the end of the call, two short tones are sounded. To extend
the call, press “7” on your telephone.
To disconnect before the end of the call, press “*” then “#” on your
telephone.
Siren Muting
The siren is muted during Two-Way Audio communication. At the end of the call, the
siren is re-activated (if the Siren Cut-Off has not yet expired). You can cancel the reactivation of the siren by pressing “9” on your telephone during the call.

Two-Way Audio after an Alarm
In the event of Burglary, Fire, Gas Detection, Flood and Medical alarms, the Control
System is able to report the events and then stay on the line. This allows the monitoring
service to verify the alarm or provide assistance in the event of an emergency.
6.4.
Two-Way Audio Follow-Me
This feature causes the Control System to call you in the event of an alarm so that you
may check your family and home.
When the Control System calls, you will hear two short tones when you pick up the
phone. Press "2" on your telephone to answer the call.
If you press “9” to answer the call, the Control System simultaneously cancels
the siren when you answer the call.
If using Simplex mode, the call is connected in Listen mode – see p. 22 6.5.
Simplex Mode.
6.5.
Simplex Mode
It is possible that the Two-Way Audio features on your system are programmed to
operate in “Simplex” mode. Simplex mode means that one party may speak while the
other party listens.
If using Simplex mode, the call is connected in Listen mode. In Listen mode, the
microphone on the Control System is turned on so that you can listen in. If you want to
switch to Speak mode, press “1” on your telephone.
In Speak mode, the microphone is turned off and the speaker is turned on so that you
can speak to the person on the other end of the line. If you want to switch back to Listen
mode, press “0” on your telephone.

7.3.
User Codes
The CommPact supports a variety of individual user codes. Each of these codes is four
digits long. Most system functions require you to enter a valid user code.
The ability to perform a function is defined by your user code’s authorization level.
These authorization levels are pre-defined for each code as explained below.
Code 1: Master Code
The master code is the highest user authorization level. With the master code, you can
edit all other user codes. Additionally, the master code grants access to the Event Log,
and the Service menu.
The default master code is 1234. Change this code immediately after the system
has been installed!
Codes 2-19: Controlled Codes
When you use a controlled user code for arming and disarming, the system notifies the
monitoring service.
Codes 20-25: Non-controlled Codes
Non-controlled codes do not cause the system to send Arm/Disarm reports to the
monitoring service. The system sends a Disarm report only if you use this code to
disarm the system after an alarm occurrence.
