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 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.
You can see if there are any faulted points by pressing the [*] key when the system is off.

Text Command Center User Guide
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 6 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 30, “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.
All On
When you turn your system All On, you are turning on all controlled points, both interior (motion detectors) and
perimeter (doors and windows of the building).

When you turn your system Part On, you are turning on only a portion of the controlled points. The particular points
included in this portion are determined by your alarm company. Part points may include only the 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.

Command Center Tones
The Command Center emits several distinct tones and illuminates lights to alert you to system events.
Tone
Description
Fire Alarm
When a fire point activates, the Command Center emits a repeated warble tone (on for one
second, then briefly off).
Burglary Alarm
When a burglary point activates while your system is turned on, your Command Center emits a
continuous warble tone. The sounder remains on for the duration of the time set by your security
company.
Trouble
When a system component is not functioning properly, your Command Center emits a repeated
warble tone (on briefly, followed by a pause, followed by the warble tone). Press the [4] key to
view the trouble. If the problem is point-related, the Command Center display indicates which
point is faulted.
Key Press
Pressing any key on the Command Center sounds a short pip, indicating that the key press is
accepted.
Entry Delay
When you enter the premises through a point programmed for Entry Delay, the Command Center
emits an intermittent beep to remind you to turn your system off. If the system is not turned off
before the Entry Delay expires, an alarm condition will occur and a report may be sent to your
alarm company.
Exit Delay
After you turn your system on, the Command Center emits an intermittent beep and counts down
the Exit Delay time. If you do not exit before the Exit Delay time expires and an Exit Delay point
is faulted, an alarm event begins.
Error
If you press an incorrect key, your Command Center emits an error tone to indicate an invalid
entry. The error tone is the same warble tone as the Trouble Tone, but it is not repeated.
OK
This tone indicates that a Command Center entry is accepted (for example, a correct passcode
is entered). The Command Center emits a single, high-pitched beep for one second.
Watch
The Command Center emits a tone to alert you when any watched point is faulted. The tone
varies in duration depending upon the Watch Tones selected (see page 31, "Select Watch
Tone").

Commands
Commands allow you to carry out various tasks (for example, add or delete passcodes, set the date and time or
test the system, etc.) Each command is detailed throughout this user guide.
Commands will be written as follows: [Cmd] + [6] + [3]. To enter this command, first press the [Cmd] key, followed
by the [6] key and then the [3] key.
System Events
Your system responds to four types of alarm events. If more than one event occurs, your system sorts them into
one of four groups: Fire Alarms (highest priority), Burglary Alarms, Fire Troubles and Non-Fire Troubles (lowest
priority). Events that are grouped as highest priority are always sent to the Central Station first.
Fire Alarms
Fire alarms are the highest priority events. When a fire point activates, your Command Center emits a Fire Alarm
tone. The tone sounds for the length of time programmed by your installing company. Evacuate all occupants and
investigate for smoke or fire. Ensure 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. The tone sounds for the alarm set by your security company. Ensure that all occupants know the
difference between the Burglary Alarm tone and the Fire Alarm tone.
The Command Center scrolls through each point alarm, or press the [*] key to manually advance the list.
Fire Trouble Events
When a fire trouble (such as a loose wire) occurs, your Command Center emits a Trouble tone.
The Command Center displays the SYSTEM TROUBLE message. See page 26, “Check System Troubles,” for
more information on determining the nature of the trouble.
Non-Fire Trouble Events
When a trouble event such as a power failure occurs, your Command Center emits a Trouble tone.
The Command Center displays the SYSTEM TROUBLE message. See page 26, “Check System Troubles,” for
more 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 (check
with your security 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 26, “Check System Troubles,” to determine 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.

Turn the System On with No Exit Tone (Delay Silent)
Use this command to turn the entire system All On, Part On or Part 2 On without any exit tones. Remember that
turning the system on with no exit tone eliminates the tone emitted by the Command Center intended to alert
occupants that the system is about to arm.
This command is useful when you wish to arm the system, but not disturb the occupants while the system counts
down prior to arming.
1.
Make sure that all points are normal (not faulted).

Note:
The display above uses an Exit Delay time of 60 seconds, and only one point is force-armed. Exit Delay time and the
number of points forced-on may vary.
4.
To force arm the system All On or Part On with Exit Delay doubled and no exit tone, press and hold [All On] or

again. Enter your passcode if prompted. The system then scrolls the “Forced on!” message and the doubled
Exit Delay Time countdown. The exit tone is silenced.
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.

a tone to sound whenever a door or window is opened as a way of monitoring the location of the children.
Use this command to turn the watch feature on and off.
Once you have programmed the system with points to watch and the responses (see page 31, “Select Watch
Tone,” and “Select Watch Points”), you need to turn the watch function on and off.

Select Watch Tone (Cmd 62)
I can perform this command.
I cannot perform this command.
The Watch feature gives you the ability to watch points when the system is turned off. The system can be programmed
to alert you to opened doors and windows. For example, parents with small children may want a tone to sound
whenever a door is opened to monitor the children.
Use this command to set the type of response your system produces when a watch point is faulted. If you wish, you
may tell your system to display the identity of the point and sound a short tone whenever certain doors or windows
are opened. See “Select Watch Points,” page 30, to program which points in your system are to be watched.

Select Watch Points (Cmd 63)
I can perform this command.
I cannot perform this command.
Once you decide how your system responds to watched points (see “Select Watch Tone”), you need to decide
which of the points in your system are “watched”.
Use this command to tell your system which points to watch. You cannot watch 24-hour and 24-hour fire points.
Choosing which points to watch depends upon your security objective. If you have small children, you may choose
to watch points of entry and exit. Each time a watch point is faulted (door or window is opened), the Command
Center responds as programmed.
1.
Ensure that your system is off (On indicator is off).

Press [Cmd] + [6] + [3]. Enter your passcode if necessary. The Command Center displays all points that are
currently being watched (Watch On) and those that are not (Watch Off), followed by instructions for changing
the current setting.

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 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 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 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.

Glossary
24-Hour Point:
Points that are always on even when the system is turned off. Two types: Fire Points and Non-Fire
24-Hour Points.
All On:
All controlled points are armed. All On with No Delay (Instant) is an option. No Exit or Entry Delay
is provided with the No Delay option.
Burglary Alarm Tone:
A constant warble tone.
Central Station:
A facility where trained personnel monitor a security system 24 hours a day. The security system
may be programmed to contact the central station during alarm conditions, enabling central station
personnel to dispatch the proper authorities.
Controlled Point:
A point that responds to alarm conditions depending upon whether the system is turned on or off.
Entry Delay:
A programmed delay of the system alarm responses that allows a person to enter the building
through the entry door to turn the system off. An alarm response begins if the area is not disarmed
before Entry Delay expires.
Error Tone:
The same warble tone as the Trouble tone, but not repeated.
Exit Delay:
A programmed delay of the system alarm responses that allows a person to exit the area before
the system turns on. An alarm response begins if a point is faulted after Exit Delay expires.
Faulted Point:
A point that is not normal (for example, an open door or window).
Fire Alarm Tone:
A warble tone that is on for one second, then briefly off (repeatedly).
Force Arming:
A method of overriding the safety feature that prevents arming with a faulted circuit on a control/
communicator.
Instant Alarm:
A point type that initiates an alarm immediately when faulted. This point type does not follow any
Entry/Exit Delay time.
No Delay:
Turning the system on without Entry or Exit Delay.
Non-Fire Point:
Non-fire point is always on and cannot be turned off.
Off:
The controlled points are not armed (system is off).
Off Display:
The display that appears when the system is turned off and no keys have been pressed (normal
display).
On:
System is turned on (armed). Controlled points are armed and will begin an alarm response if
faulted.
Part On:
An installer-defined subset of the controlled points. Part On with No Delay (Instant) is an option. No
Exit or Entry Delay is provided with the No Delay option.
Part 2 On:
A user-defined subset of the controlled points. Part 2 On with No Delay (Instant) is an option. No
Exit or Entry Delay is provided with the No Delay option.
Point:
A detection device or group of devices connected to your security system.
RAM IV:
RAM (Remote Account Manager) IV is a Windows-based account management and panel
programming utility designed to remotely set up and program specific control panels.
Restoral Report:
A signal transmitted upon the removal of a trouble or alarm condition from an alarm circuit.
SDI:
Serial Device Interface.
Sked:
A scheduling parameter that allows a selected event to happen at a specific time.
Trouble:
A service condition that needs to be corrected, such as a broken wire.
Trouble Tone:
A warble tone that is on briefly, followed by a pause, followed by a warble tone (repeatedly).
Warble Tone:
A tone that is on for one second, then briefly off.
