INTRODUCTION
The GEM-RP1CAe2 is a “smart”
user-friendly, interactive menu-driven
keypad designed for your Napco control
panel. Its alphanumeric screen will not
only display the status of your system,
but will also give you step-by-step
instructions to guide you through all
operations.
This booklet contains important
information about the operation of your
system with this GEM-RP1CAe2
Keypad. Read it carefully and keep it
handy for future reference. Check the
Glossary for an explanation of terms
that may be unfamiliar to you.
You'll probably find subjects
mentioned in this booklet that do not
apply to your system. Napco control
panels have such a wide variety of
features that few security systems, if
any, will ever need them all. Your alarm
professional has chosen appropriate
features for your particular needs.
Regardless of how your system has
been configured, rest assured that it has
been carefully designed and engineered
to the highest industry standards. To
assure optimum safety and security,
familiarize yourself with this equipment.
Periodically check its condition and
state of readiness by testing it at least
once a week in both the ac/battery and
battery-only modes (ask your alarm
professional how to make these tests).
IMPORTANT - TEST YOUR SYSTEM WEEKLY

FIRE PROTECTION
Preparing a Fire Escape Plan
Even with the most advanced fire alarm
system, adequate protection requires an
escape plan.
To prepare your plan, draw floor plans of
your building. (Space is provided on the
next page). Show two exits - a front or
back door and a window from each room.
(Make sure the window works. You may
need a special fire-escape ladder if the
window is high up). Write down your
outside meeting place.
Family Rehearsal.
Rehearse each of the following activities:
1. Everyone in his room with the doors
closed.
2. One person sounds the alarm.
3. Each person tests his door.
4. Pretend the door is hot and use the
alternate escape exit.
5. Everyone meets outdoors at the
assigned spot.
Important! - Read Carefully
Discuss these escape procedures with all
those who use the building:
1. In a residence, sleep with the bedroom
door closed. A closed door will hold
back deadly smoke while you escape.
2. When the fire alarm signals, escape
quickly. Do not stop to pack.
3. Test the door. If it is hot, use your
alternate route through the window. If
the door is cool, brace your shoulder
against it and open it cautiously. Be
ready to slam the door if smoke or
heat rushes in. Crawl through smoke,
holding your breath. Close the doors
again on leaving to help prevent the
fire from spreading.
4. Go to your specific outdoor meeting
place so you can see that everyone is
safe.
5. Assign someone to make sure nobody
returns to the burning building.
6. Call the Fire Department from a
neighbor's telephone.

FIRE PROTECTION
LIMITATIONS OF FIRE ALARM WARNING SYSTEM
Although a fire alarm system may be of a
reliable and state-of- the-art design, neither it
nor its peripheral detection devices can offer
guaranteed protection against fire. Any such
equipment may fail to warn for a variety of
reasons:
Control panels, communicators, dialers,
smoke detectors, and many other sensing
devices will not work without power. Batteryoperated devices will not work without
batteries, with dead batteries, or with
improperly-installed batteries. Devices
powered solely by AC will not work if their
power source is cut off for any reason.
Fires often cause a failure of electrical
power. If the system does not contain a
working battery backup power supply, and if
the electrical circuit feeding the devices is cut
or is not providing power for any reason, the
system will not detect heat or smoke or
provide any warning of a possible fire.
Telephone lines needed to transmit
alarm signals to a central monitoring station
may be out of service.
Smoke detectors, though highly effective
in reducing fire deaths, may not activate or
provide early-enough warning for a variety of
14
reasons: (a) they may not sense fires that
start where smoke cannot reach them, such
as in chimneys, walls, roofs, behind closed
doors, etc.; (b) they may not sense a fire on a
different level of the residence or building; (c)
they have sensing limitations; no smoke
detector can sense every kind of fire every
time.
Thermostatic heat detectors do not
always detect fires because the fire may be a
slow smoldering low-heat type (producing
smoke); because they may not be near the
fire; or because the heat of the fire may
bypass them. These detectors will not detect
oxygen levels, smoke, toxic gases, or flames.
Therefore, they may only be used as part of
a comprehensive fire-detection system in
conjunction with other devices. Under no
circumstances should thermostatic heat
detectors be relied upon as the sole measure
to ensure fire safety.
Alarm warning devices such as sirens,
bells, or horns may not alert someone behind
a closed or partially-opened door. Warning
devices located on one level are less likely to
alert those on a different level. Even those
who are awake may not hear the warning if
the alarm is obscured by noise from a stereo,
radio, air conditioner, or other appliance, or
by passing traffic, etc. Alarm warning
devices, however loud, may fail to warn the
hearing impaired.
Alarm products, as all electrical devices,
are subject to component failure. Even
though the equipment is designed for many
years of trouble-free performance, electronic
components could fail at any time.
Above are some of the reasons that fire
alarm equipment could fail. The most
common cause of an alarm system not
functioning when a fire occurs is inadequate
testing and maintenance. The system should
be tested at least weekly to ensure that all
the equipment is working properly.
While an alarm system may make one
eligible for lower insurance rates, it is not a
substitute for insurance. Homeowners,
property owners, and renters are therefore
urged to maintain adequate insurance
coverage of life and property.

Your alarm specialist may have
programmed your system to be
monitored by a central station. The builtin digital communicator can transmit
emergency signals and status reports to
the central station 24 hours a day.
Communicator Features
Abort Delay. Ask your installer which
of your zones have Abort Delay, a
delay that enables you to reset the
system before it communicates to
the central station. Your system
has a SIA CP-01 required Abort
Delay of 30 seconds. It may be removed or increased up to 45 seconds (at your option) by consulting
with your installer.
Regular Burglary (Non-24-Hour) Zone
reports are aborted by disarming
within the delay period. 24-Hour
Zones and zones programmed to
report restores must be restored
first, then the panel armed and
disarmed, all within the delay
period.
20
Opening and/or Closing Reporting.
Your system can notify the central
station every time it is disarmed or
armed. Any or all of up to 96
different users can each be
identified. If your system reports on
arming (Closing Report), the central
station will acknowledge arming.
This will signal at the keypad as a
“ringback” beep. Note: If the
ringback signal is not heard, call for
service.
A D V AN C E D F E AT U R E S
Security Bypass/Unbypass
(Security Bypass programmed? !YES !NO).
In high-security applications, zones may be bypassed (or unbypassed) only if a valid code is entered first, as follows:
1. Enter a User Code valid for bypass, then press B.
2.
Press B then the zone number (or vice versa) to deactivate that zone.
Similarly, a bypassed zone may be unbypassed using the same procedure. (This feature available for GEM-P3200/9600 panels only).
Start Exit Time After Ringback (for Commercial Burglary Systems only)
(Optional - Start Exit Time programmed? !YES !NO).
If your system reports to a central station, your panel may have been programmed to start exit delay after the central-station
ringback (verification) signal. Then, after arming, your system will communicate to the central station. After the central station
acknowledges receipt (ringback), exit delay will start. If ringback is not heard within about 30 seconds, a communication
problem may exist; call for service. Function 11 (Start Exit Time) may then be used to manually start the exit delay, however
reporting capability may be sacrificed. (If your system does not report or the ringback feature was not programmed, exit delay
will start as soon as your code is entered. Also note that if an exception window is programmed, and the closing is within that
window, no ringback is provided. Ask your alarm professional if this feature is enabled). (This feature available for GEMP3200/9600 panels only).
Exit-Delay Restart
(Exit-Delay Restart programmed? !YES !NO).
On arming, the programmed exit delay will start. After the exit/entry door has been opened and then closed, exit delay will restart if the door is opened again. The Exit-Delay Restart feature will occur one time only in any arming period. (This feature
available for GEM-P3200/9600 panels only).
