Fire Safety
Residential fire is a leading cause of accidental death. Most fire related deaths
occur at night when the occupants suffocate in their sleep from smoke and deadly
gases, rather than from burns. To help reduce this risk, implement the following
three-step program:
1.
Minimize fire hazards around the home. Smoking in bed,
cleaning with flammable liquids such as gasoline, leaving
children home alone, and unsafe holiday decorations are some of
the more common causes of household fire.
2.
Install a fire warning system. The primary purpose of this system
is to protect lives, not property, by giving the earliest possible
warning of the danger. In the event of a fire, the alarm system
generates a loud intermittent tone distinctly different than a
burglar alarm.
understand exactly what to do.
Possible escape routes through open windows marked with arrows.
Primary and alternate escape routes should be established. Since stairwells and
hallways can be blocked during a fire, exiting through a bedroom window at
night should be an essential part of the escape plan. If the sleeping area is above
the ground floor, provide a means of safe descent outside the building if one does
not already exist.
All family members should plan to meet at a predetermined location away from
the house (such as a neighbor’s), to verify that all are accounted for.
In homes with more than one sleeping area a smoke detector
(indicated by an inverted “s” in a circle) should be provided to
detect smoke in each area.
3.
Plan and practice an escape plan. A fire alarm warning is wasted
unless the family has planned for a quick evacuation. Because
there is very little time between detection of a fire and the time it
becomes deadly, it is important that every member of the family
In Case of Fire
1.
The primary purpose of a fire warning system is to protect lives.
In the event of a fire alarm, quickly leave the building and call
the fire department from a neighbor’s or public telephone.
2.
If it is determined the alarm was accidentally tripped, the bell
should be silenced, the detectors reset, and your alarm company
notified immediately of the situation.

Introduction
AC Power Failure
Your security system helps to secure life, property, and investments against fire,
theft, and bodily harm. The keypad is an arming station that offers a variety of
features. Function, versatility, and ease of operation make the keypad the ideal
system for the home or office.
If your keypad indicates AC power has failed, and you have power in the
remainder of your premises, there could be a problem with the electrical
transformer or circuit breaker supplying power to your security control panel.
First, check to be sure 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.
With custom programming, the keypad is tailored to meet your individual needs.
The Command mode allows you to perform a variety of functions with maximum
simplicity - only the touch of two or three keys is required to control almost
every feature on the keypad. Three function keys allow common commands to be
performed with the touch of just one key.
The keypad puts the control of your security system right at your fingertips.
Transformer location: _________________________________________
If the transformer is plugged in, check the circuit breaker supplying power to the
outlet. If the breaker is tripped, reset it. If it trips again, the overload condition must be
corrected.
Circuit breaker location: _______________________________________
Maintenance and Service
The keypad requires very little maintenance; however, the system should be
tested weekly to detect service needs early. A test schedule and maintenance
program is arranged with your alarm company. If a change in operation is
noticed during normal use or testing, call for service as soon as possible. Do not
attempt to repair the control panel, arming stations, or detectors yourself.

The D720 Series Keypad
The keypad is an illuminated digital arming station that is the keypad for your
entire security system. The keypad does much more than just arm and disarm
your security system; it can initiate several system commands. A system status
display panel keeps you informed of security conditions, as well as storing alarm
information for future reference. It also indicates various security system
conditions such as your system’s armed status, protective point status, power
supply status, and Command mode status. A built-in sounder alerts you of
several different conditions, which requires action. The keypad also includes
three function keys that perform many system commands with the touch of one
key.

Security System Basics
Keypad Features
What is a Point?
Armed Status Indicators
A point is a detection device, or group of devices connected to your security
system. Each area of your property is assigned to a specific point with a number.
A point is a single door (like the entrance door) or an area of your property (like
the second floor). Each point is represented by its point number on the keypad
display panel. There are two basic types of points: Controlled and 24-hour.
Three lights indicate the armed status of your security system. Each is explained
below. During an exit delay period, these lights flash on and off slowly.
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 provide a delay for you
to reach the keypad and disarm the system. There are two types of controlled
points: Perimeter and Interior.
1.
Perimeter Points: All exterior doors and windows of the building,
forming the outside “wall of protection” around your building.
2.
Interior Points: All interior forms of burglary protection such as
carpet mats, motion sensors, inside doors, etc..
Perimeter--When this red indicator is lit, your perimeter points are
armed. When this indicator is not lit, your system is not
armed.
Interior -- When this yellow indicator is lit, your interior points are
armed. When this indicator is not lit, your interior points
are not armed.
Instant-- This red indicator shows how your system is armed; either
instant or delayed. When this indicator is lit, your security
system is armed without entry/exit delay time. When the
system is armed with entry/exit delay, this indicator is not lit.
Point Status Indicators
24-Hour Points
Point status indicators on the keypad show the condition of your system’s
protective points. Each point has its own indicator that shows three different point
conditions (listed in order of priority).
24-hour points are always on, even when the burglary system is disarmed (turned off).
There are two types of 24-hour points: Fire and Non-Fire.
Point Bypass -- When a point is bypassed (not armed with the rest of the system),
its indicator light flashes on and off slowly.
1.
2.
Fire Points: Exclusively monitor fire detection devices. They are
always armed and cannot be disarmed. Fire alarms have a unique
audible warning signal.
Non-Fire Points: Always armed and cannot be disarmed.
Faulted Point -- A faulted point is indicated by a steadily lit point status indicator.
Point Alarm Memory -- When a point is faulted into alarm, its indicator flashes
on and off rapidly.
The Point Status Indicators also show whether the system is ready to arm or not.
If the point status indicators are not lit, the system is armed by entering your
personal passcode or any of the arming commands available to your system. If
any of the point status indicators are lit, the system has a faulted point. Correcting
the faulted point usually means closing a door or window.
5
Power Indicator
The Keypad
When the red PWR indicator LED lights steadily, your security system is
operating from AC voltage and the standby battery is fully charged. When the
PWR indicator is off, AC or battery power is not present. When flashing slowly, a
low battery power condition is indicated. When flashing quickly, battery power is
missing. If the indicator is off or continues to flash, contact your security
company.
The keypad has a lighted digital keypad used to enter passcodes and system
commands into the security system. As you touch the keys to enter a passcode,
the keypad emits a short beep tone to indicate that your entry is accepted.
Command Mode Indicator
When the [COMMAND] bar is pressed, the red Command mode indicator
(CMD) lights steadily to show the system is ready to accept a command. If the
command requires that a passcode be entered, the CMD indicator slowly blinks,
prompting you to enter your passcode. Once a passcode is entered, the
Command mode indicator lights steadily again and remains steadily lit while the
system is in the command mode. The indicator goes off when the command is
completed (or after 15 seconds of inactivity).
Note:
If all of the keypad’s LEDs are blinking in unison, the system requires
service.
COMMAND Bar
The [COMMAND] bar is used to perform one- or two-digit COMMAND
functions.
Note:
Some systems require a security passcode to be entered after the function keys
or [COMMAND] bar are pressed. If a passcode is required, the CMD light
blinks. Enter your passcode when you see this light blinking.
Enter (ENT) Key
When the passcode is completed, press the [ENT] key to activate the passcode. If
you do not press the [ENT] key, the passcode is ignored by the security system.
When entering a passcode or command at the keypad, each key must be pressed
within 5 seconds of the last key entry. After 5 seconds have expired from the last
key entry, the entire entry is cleared and the passcode must be started over.
Exiting the Command Mode
If you decide to exit the Command mode before completing the chosen function,
you can exit the command mode at any time by pressing the [A] key. The CMD
light goes off, confirming that you have left the command mode.

Function Keys
Turning the System Off (Disarming)
The keypad has three function keys (labeled A, B, and C). The function keys are
used to perform system commands with the touch of one key. Your alarm
technician programs the Function Keys.
Your security system is turned off by entering your personal passcode and
pressing [ENT]. When your system is turned on, you must enter the premises
through a designated entry door to prevent an immediate instant alarm
condition. Open the door starts an entry delay time and the keypad emits a
pulsing beep tone to remind you to turn the system off. Enter your personal
passcode and press [ENT] before the delay time expires and the system turns off.

them it is not an emergency situation.
______________________________
______________________________
Note:
The [A], [B], and [C] keys can perform various functions. These functions
require a few seconds before they are completed, because the system is
completing several instructions at once. Therefore, please wait for 5 seconds
after using the [A], [B], or [C] keys to allow the system to “catch up.”
Turning the System On (Arming)
Your security system is turned on (armed) in many different ways, depending on
the arming command used. Arming commands turn the system on. The most
basic arming command is to arm the entire system. The simplest way to arm your
system is to enter your personal passcode and press [ENT] or to use COMMAND
1.
There are several other arming commands to turn the system on. For example:
arm only the perimeter or arm only portions of the perimeter. These arming
functions and their respective commands are described later in this guide.

Silencing an Alarm
Reporting to the Central Station
My system reports to a Central Station.
The audible alarm sounds for a specific period of time before it automatically
shuts off. If an alarm occurs and you want to silence the bell or siren before the
time expires, simply enter your personal passcode and press [ENT].
After silencing the alarm and returning points to normal, you can clear the alarm
memory lights by entering your passcode twice (arm and disarm). On some
systems the alarm memory lights are cleared by entering COMMAND 4.
My system does not report to a Central Station.
Your system is programmed to send a closing report to your security company
when arming.
My system sends a Closing Report.
My system does not send a Closing Report.
To Silence an alarm:
Enter your personal passcode and press [ENT].
Note:
Your system is programmed to send an Opening Report to your security
company when disarming.
My system sends an Opening Report.
Some security systems are programmed so bells or sirens cannot be silenced
until the point is restored to a normal (non-alarm) condition.
My system does not send an Opening Report.
Your system is programmed to report Force Arming to your security company.
Force Arming is reported to my security company.
Force Arming is not reported to my security company.
Your security system automatically disconnects your telephone from its line when
transmitting reports to your security company. This prevents reports from being
interrupted during transmission. Once the report is completed, the telephone line
is restored to normal service.
Note:
If damage occurs to the telephone line and your telephone service is
interrupted, reports are not transmitted to your security company unless an
alternate means of transmitting signals is installed in your system.
8
Exit Delay Tone: After you arm your system, the keypad emits a
repeating beep tone and counts down the exit delay time. If you
don’t exit before the delay time expires, and an exit delay door is
faulted, entry delay begins.
Keypad Tones
Your keypad emits one of several distinct tones to alert you to system events.
Additional bells or sirens can also be connected to your system. Bells or sirens
mounted on the exterior of your premises alert neighbors to emergencies and
provide an audible guide for police and fire fighters. Some of these tones are
optional, and are selected by your alarm technician.
1.
Note:
Fire Alarms: Fire alarms are the highest priority events. When a
fire point activates, your keypad emits a fast, pulsating,
high-pitched tone. Evacuate all occupants and investigate for smoke
or fire. Ensure all occupants know the difference between the
burglary tone and the fire tone. The tone sounds for the time set by
your security company. The keypad point status LEDs show the
fire points in alarm.
5.
Keystroke Checking Tones: Pressing any key on the keypad
sounds a short beep tone. When you press an incorrect key, a flat buzz
tone sounds to indicate an invalid entry.
6.
Faulted Point: When you enter an arming command, and a point is
faulted, the sounder is activated for 2 seconds. The point status
indicator associated with the faulted point is lit.
7.
Watch Tone: When the Watch Mode is activated, the keypad
emits a brief tone to alert you when any watch point is faulted and the
point indicator lights to indicate which point is faulted. The tone
sounds only when the door or window is opened. It does not sound
again for that point until the door or window is closed and then
reopened.
Some points, such as fire points, are programmed so the sounder cannot be
silenced until the point fault is corrected.
2.
3.
4.
Burglary Alarms: Burglary alarms are the second priority. When a
burglary point activates while your system is armed, your keypad
emits a pulsating burglary tone. The tone sounds for the time set
by your security company. The keypad point status LEDs show
the burglary points in alarm.
System Trouble Events: When a system component is not
functioning properly, your keypad is programmed to repeatedly
emit three warble tones, then a pause. If the problem is with a
point, the point status light indicates which point is faulted. To
silence the system trouble tone, enter COMMAND 4 or your
personal passcode followed by [ENT].
Entry Delay Tone: When you enter the premises through a point
programmed for entry delay, the keypad emits a repeating tweedle
tone to remind you to turn off your system.
Some system trouble events produce a trouble tone without producing any status light
indications. These trouble events fall into three categories:
1.
Hardware, software, or wiring problems. For example: a keypad was
unplugged from the control panel or the printer was unplugged.
Call your security company.
2.
Communication or phone failure. For example: you have phone
line trouble. Call your security company.
3.
Late to close reminder tone. If your system is programmed to
send a Closing Report, your keypad sounds the trouble tone to
remind you that it is time to close. Arm your system to silence the
tone.

One by one, activate the detection devices to fault each point. The
audible fire devices sound momentarily and the keypad display
indicates the faulted point, verifying that the detection device is
working properly.
5.
To end the Fire Test, press any numeric key on the keypad. If no
activity occurs on the system for 20 minutes, the fire test ends
automatically.
Use this function to test points and other 24-hour points to be certain they
function properly. You can review untested points at your keypad to help
pinpoint any problems.
When initiated, the Fire Test tests the fire bell pattern on the bell output and rings
the keypad fire bell for 2 seconds. The AC is disabled for 4 minutes to test the
system’s battery power. If the battery cannot maintain the system for the 4-minute
period, the keypad appears to go dead. If this happens, contact your security
company. At the end of the 4-minute period, AC returns to the system and the
control panel restores. A message is be sent to your security company upon
initiation and completion of the Fire Test. During the Fire Test, no 24-hour alarms
are sent to your security company.
If there is no activity on the system for 20 minutes, the system automatically exits
from the Fire Test.

Turning the System On With a Duress Passcode
I have this feature.
I do not have this feature.
This feature requires a passcode.
A duress passcode sends a silent alarm signal to your security company. It arms
or disarms the security system just like your personal passcode; however, as the
system is armed or disarmed, an alarm signal is transmitted. Be sure your security
technician explains how this feature works in your system. There is no alarm tone
or visual indication at the premises that the report is sent.
Passcode + 1, or + 2
The duress passcode is based on your personal passcode. By increasing the last
digit by one or two, the duress feature is activated. For example; If your personal
passcode is 1234, the duress passcode is 1235 (or 1236).
My system uses Passcode + 1 for duress.
My system uses Passcode + 2 for duress.
Note:
If your system has a security passcode that unlocks the [COMMAND] bar,
increasing the last digit of that passcode sends a duress signal to your
security company.
Important!
Be sure to press the [ENT] key after entering the duress passcode.
Application
The duress passcode is used when someone threatens you and demands you
disarm (or arm) your security system. By disarming (or arming) with a duress
passcode, your security company is alerted of an alarm situation.
28
Force Arming the System
To arm with points faulted:
I have this feature.
1.
Enter your personal passcode and press the [ENT] key, or enter
an arming command (COMMANDs 1, 2, or 3). The keypad emits
a buzz tone indicating a point is faulted.
2.
Press the [COMMAND] bar and then the [ENT] key. The system
now arms all points that are normal.
I do not have this feature.
If a protected door or window is open, you can have the option of force arming
with that point faulted. Faulted points (opened doors or windows) that are force
armed are not included in the system. The remaining points arm normally.
Your system might not offer force arming or it is restricted to specific points.
Contact your security company for more information.
Note:
If the fault is restored (returned to normal) while arming, the point is
armed. If the fault is restored after arming, how your system is programmed
determines whether or not the point is armed with the rest of the system.
A faulted point is armed with the rest of the system if restored.
A faulted point is not armed with the rest of the system if restored
and is not be armed until I disarm the security system and re-enter
an arming command.
I am allowed to have a maximum of ______ points faulted when force arming.

Security System Glossary
Passcode - Used to arm or disarm the keypad.
Arm and Disarm - Rendering of an igniter from a safe (no energy) to a ready-tofire condition and vice versa.
Perimeter Arm - Arming command that arms only the perimeter of your building,
Bypass - Deliberately not including certain points of protection when arming the
security system.
Central Station - Facility where trained personnel monitor your security system
24 hours a day. Your system can contact central station personnel to dispatch the
proper authorities.
Point - Detection device, or group of devices, connected to your security system.
A point is a single door or an entire room or area of your building (like the
second floor). Most points are either perimeter, interior, or fire (24-hour) points.
Trouble - Service condition that needs to be corrected, such as a broken wire.
Closing Report - Signal to your security company indicating the system is armed.
Commercial accounts can use this report to indicate the business is now closed.
Keypad - Displays system status, sounds warnings with a sounder, and can also
control many other functions of a security system including Arming and
Disarming.
Entry Delay - Predetermined amount of time provided by the security system to enter
an armed building through a delay door. Once the delay door is opened, the entry
delay begins. If the security system is not disarmed before the delay time expires, the
system goes into alarm.
Exit Delay - Predetermined amount of time provided by the security system to
leave the armed building through a delay door. Once the system is armed, the
exit time begins. You must exit the building before the exit delay time expires.
Faulted Point - Point that is not normal (a door or window is open).
Force Arm - Turning on (arming) the security system even though one or more
points are faulted. Force arming bypasses the faulted points.
Master Arm - Turning on (arming) all detection systems, including interior and
perimeter points.
Opening Report - Signal to your security company indicating the system just was
disarmed. Commercial accounts can use this report to indicate the business is
open.

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.
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 all system components are working properly.
Although having a security system can 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.
• If intruders gain access through unprotected points of entry, the system
does not detect their entrance.
• If intruders have the technical means of bypassing, jamming, or
disconnecting all or part of the system, they are not detected.
• If the AC power supply is off and the backup battery is missing or dead,
sensors do not detect intrusion.
• Smoke detectors cannot detect smoke in chimneys, walls, roofs, or
smoke blocked by a closed door. They can not detect smoke or fire
on a level of the building different from the one on which they are
located. Smoke detectors can’t 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.
