System Overview
General
Congratulations on your ownership of a First Alert Partitioned Security
System. You've made a wise decision in choosing it, for it represents the
latest in security protection technology today. First Alert is the world's
largest manufacturer of security systems and millions of premises are
protected by First Alert systems.
This system offers you three forms of protection: burglary, fire and
emergency. To realize the system's full potential, it is important that you feel
comfortable in operating it. Your system consists of at least one Keypad
which provides full control of system operation, various sensors which
provide perimeter and interior burglary protection, plus a selected number of
strategically placed smoke or combustion detectors designed to provide early
warning in case of fire.
The system uses microcomputer technology to monitor all protection zones
and system status and provides appropriate information for display on the
Keypad(s) used with the system, and initiates appropriate alarms. Your
system may also have been programmed to automatically transmit alarm or
status messages over the phone lines to a central alarm monitoring station.
NOTE: If you have a Symphony (Advanced User Interface) and/or
TeleSmart connected to your system, refer to the Symphony and
TeleSmart User Guides for operating instructions for those units.
A Partitioned System
Simply stated, a partitioned system shares one physical alarm system among
different users, each with their own requirements. For the most part, you as
a user need not know about other users and their structure in the system,
but from time to time, you may see display messages which indicate the
system is in use by another user. Do not be concerned, this is normal. Refer
to the ACCESSING OTHER PARTITIONS section for additional information.
–5–
System Overview (cont’d)
Panel Linking
Panel Linking networks up to eight FA1660C control panels, enabling a user
to control the features of all control panels from a single location. The Panel
Linking is ideal for multi-building environments (e.g. a shopping mall, college
campus, etc.).
The system provides the following three modes to access other “linked”
control panels:
• Single-Partition, Single-Panel − displays status of a partition on a remote
control panel and allows control of that remote control panel.
• Multi-Partition, Multi-Panel Mode − displays status and allows
arming/disarming of multiple partitions at once on a remote control
panel.
• Multi-Panel View Mode − displays status and allows arming/disarming of
multiple remote control panels at a time.
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 001, sensing devices on windows in the master bedroom to zone 002,
and so on. These numbers will appear on the display, along with an alpha
descriptor for that zone (if programmed), when an alarm or trouble condition
occurs.
Fire Protection
The fire protection portion of your security system (if used) is always on 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 your house.
–6–
System Overview (cont’d)
Burglary Protection
The burglary protection portion of your system must be turned on or "armed"
before it will sense burglary alarm conditions. Your system provides four
modes of burglary protection: STAY, AWAY, INSTANT and MAXIMUM, and
even allows you to BYPASS selected zones of protection while leaving the
rest of the system armed. The system also provides a CHIME mode, for
alerting users to the opening and closing of doors and windows while the
system is disarmed. Refer to the other sections of this manual for procedures
for using these features.
The following table lists the four different arming modes and the results of
each.

ARMING IN THE STAY MODES and ARMING IN THE INSTANT MODES
sections for details on these modes.
Alarms
When an alarm occurs, both the keypad and external sounders will sound,
and the keypad will display the zone(s) causing the alarm. If your system is
connected to a central monitoring station, an alarm message will also be sent.
To stop the alarm sounding, simply disarm the system.
Memory of Alarm
When an alarm condition occurs, the keypad displays the number(s) of the
zone(s) that caused the problem, and displays the type of alarm (ex. FIRE,
ALARM). It remains displayed until it is cleared by disarming the system
(see DISARMING THE SYSTEM section).
–7–
System Overview (cont’d)
Speed Key (Macros)
The system can store a string of up to 32 keystrokes, which can be activated
anytime by simply pressing the “A , B, C, or D” keys. This feature can be
used to make it easy to perform multiple functions at once (such as going to
another partition to bypass a zone), or it can be used to simplify an everyday,
repeated procedure. Refer to the SPEED KEY section for procedures for
using this feature.
Using Schedules
Your system may have been programmed with schedules for automatically
arming, disarming and activating various devices and/or performing other
system functions at predetermined times. Users can modify some of these
schedules by manually delaying a closing time, using temporary schedules, or
by programming special user schedules. Refer to the USING SCHEDULES
section at the end of this manual for scheduling related procedures.
Device Timers
The system provides up to 20 "timers" that can be used to control various
devices, such as lights or appliances. These timers are similar in concept to
the individual appliance timers that might be purchased at a department
store. The devices that can be controlled are programmed into the system by
the installer. Up to 96 of these devices can be programmed. Refer to the
PROGRAMMING DEVICE TIMERS section for procedures.
To Access Another Partition (GOTO Command)
Each keypad is assigned a default partition for display purposes, and will
show only that partition's information. But, if the user is authorized, a
keypad in one partition can be used to perform system functions in another
partition, by using the GOTO command. Note that only those partitions
authorized and programmed by the installer can be accessed in this manner.
To GOTO another partition, enter your security code, then press [✳] followed
by the desired partition number (1-8).
The keypad will remain in the new partition until directed to go to another
partition, or until 120 seconds has elapsed with no keypad activity. Entering
your security code, pressing [✳] followed by [0] will return the keypad to its
original partition.
–8–
System Overview (cont’d)
Master Keypad Operation
A "Master" keypad is one on which the status of all 8 partitions is displayed
simultaneously. A user can get more information about a certain partition by
simply entering [✳] + the desired partition number (1-8). To log on to the
"Master" partition (9) using the GOTO command, and to perform any
functions at a Master keypad, a user must have access to all partitions.
Self-Help Feature
Abbreviated user's instructions are built into the system that can be easily
viewed on the alpha keypad's message display screen. This feature will prove
particularly useful if this manual is not conveniently accessible when you
need to perform a system procedure with which you are not familiar.
To view the abbreviated instructions:
Simply press and hold down the function key of interest until the description
starts to appear (about 5 seconds) and then release it. The system must be
“READY TO ARM” to perform this function.
Refer to the FUNCTIONS OF THE KEYPAD section for descriptions of each
key function.
Phone Access & Voice Response Capability
Your system may include a 4285 or 4286 VIP module that will permit you to
access the system via a Touch-tone phone, either on-premises or by call-in
when away. The phone access feature will enable you to do the following:
• Receive synthesized voice messages over the telephone regarding the
status of the security system.
• Arm and disarm the system and perform most function commands via
the telephone, with voice confirmation provided after each command
entry.
• Control 4204/4204CF relays devices and lights and appliances through
the #70 Manual Relay Activation mode.
Complete information regarding the use of this feature is provided in a
separate manual entitled PHONE ACCESS USER'S GUIDE, which
accompanies the 4285 or 4286 VIP module.

About The Keypads
General
IMPORTANT: If the keypad beeps rapidly upon entering the
premises, it indicates that an alarm has occurred during your
absence. LEAVE IMMEDIATELY and CONTACT THE POLICE
from a safe location nearby.
NOTE: If you have a Symphony (Advanced User Interface) and/or
TeleSmart connected to your system, refer to the Symphony and
TeleSmart User Guides for operating instructions for those units.
Your keypads allow you to control all system functions. The keypads feature
a telephone style (digital) keypad and a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) that
shows the nature and location of all occurrences. Keypad display back
lighting is programmable to always stay on or to light only when a key is
pressed, then turn off a few minutes later.
The keypads also feature a built-in sounder that will sound during alarms
and troubles. It will also "beep" during certain system functions, such as
during entry/exit delay times, during CHIME mode, and when depressing
keys to perform system functions (to acknowledge the key press). These
sounds can be optionally suppressed in some of your keypads (so as not to
disturb other users of the system). Ask your installer if this has been done.
The Alpha Keypad
Alpha keypads feature a 2-line, 32 character alphanumeric Liquid Crystal
Display (LCD) that can display system messages in user-friendly English.
Abbreviated user's instructions can also be displayed (see Self Help
paragraph in the SYSTEM OVERVIEW section). These keypads can also be
programmed with custom zone descriptors.

panic keys. Refer to the SPEEDKEY
(MACROS) and PANIC KEYS sections for
descriptions of these functions.
–13 –
Entry/Exit Delays
General Information
Your system has installer-programmed time delays, known as exit delay and
entry delay. Whenever you arm your system, exit delay gives you time to
leave through the designated exit door without setting off an alarm. Exit
delay begins immediately after entering any arming command, and applies to
all modes of arming protection. If programmed, a slow beeping will sound
throughout the exit delay period.
Entry Delay gives you time to disarm the system when you reenter through
the designated entrance door. But the system must be disarmed before the
entry delay period ends, or an alarm will occur. The keypad will beep during
the entry delay period, reminding you to disarm the system. You can also
arm the system with no entry delay at all by using either INSTANT or
MAXIMUM arming modes. These modes provide greater security while on
the premises or while away for extended periods of time. See your installer
for your delay times.
– 14 –
Security Codes & Authority Levels
General Information
At the time of installation, you were assigned an authority level and a
personal four-digit security code, known only to you and yours. The security
code must be entered when arming and disarming the system. The authority
level defines the system functions that you can perform.
As an additional safety feature, other users that do not have a need to know
your code can be assigned different security codes, and each user can be given
a different authority level. Users are identified by "user numbers", which are
assigned when assigning a user's security code.
All codes can be used interchangeably when performing system functions
within the limits of each code's authority level (a system armed with one
user's code can be disarmed by another user's code), with the exception of the
Operator Level C code. See AUTHORITY LEVELS on the following page for
details regarding authority levels.
Important: Only users assigned for user numbers 001-050 can perform
panel linking functions.
Duress Code
This feature is intended for use if you are forced to disarm or arm the system
under threat. When used, the system will act normally, but can silently
notify the central station of your situation, if that service has been provided.
The duress code is pre-assigned by the installer during installation (authority
level 6).
Important: This code is useful only when the system is connected to a
central station.
Quick Arming
Note that if "Quick Arming" was programmed by the installer, the [#] key
can be pressed in place of the security code when arming the system. The
security code must always be used to disarm the system, however.
– 15 –
Security Codes & Authority Levels (cont’d)
Authority Levels
Authority levels define the system functions a particular user can perform.
Depending on the authority assigned to you, there are certain system
functions you may be prohibited from performing. In summary, there are six
authority levels, each having certain system restrictions as shown below.
Level 1 Master:
Can perform all system functions in assigned
partitions, and can add, delete or change Manager
and Operator level users. Master codes are added
by the Installer.
Level 2 Manager:
Can perform system functions in assigned
partitions, and can add, delete or change Operator
level users.
Level 3 Operator A:
Can perform system functions in assigned
partitions, but cannot add or delete other users.
Level 4 Operator B:
Same as Operator A, except Operator B cannot
bypass zones of protection.
Level 5 Operator C:
Can arm the system in assigned partitions, but
cannot disarm the system unless the system was
armed with this code. This code is typically
assigned to someone who has a need to
arm/disarm the system only at certain times (such
as a baby-sitter).
Level 6 Duress:
Can arm and disarm the system, but also sends a
silent panic alarm to the central station, if that
service is connected.
To view your authority level and system capabilities:
1. Enter your code + [✳] + [✳].
2. The keypad will display the partition(s) that you are authorized to
operate, and your user number and authority level in each partition.
– 16 –
Security Codes & Authority Levels (cont’d)
General Rules on Authority Levels and Changes
A user may not delete or change the user code of the SAME or HIGHER
authority than which he is assigned.
• A user may only ADD users to a LOWER authority level.
• A user may assign access codes only to those partitions to which the user
adding the code has access. (ex. a user with access to only partition 1
cannot assign codes in partition 2.)
• The only way to assign a user's authority level is by using the "Add A
User" procedure. To change a user's authority level, that user must first
be deleted, then added again.
• A user can only be DELETED or CHANGED from within the partition he
is assigned.
• User numbers must be entered as 3-digit entries. Single digit user
numbers must be preceded by a "00" (example, 003, 004, etc.). Security
codes are entered as 4-digit numbers.
• Before assigning a security code, be sure it does not conflict with any
DURESS code.
Note: When adding, changing or deleting users, all other alpha keypads in
that partition will display "User Edit Mode – Please Stand By", and key
depressions (except Panic) at those keypads will be ignored. Panic key
depressions will cause an alarm and terminate user entry.
•
To Exit User Edit Mode
You can exit any of the user edit modes described on the following pages at
any time by doing the following:
1. Press either ✳ or # , or don't press any key for 10 seconds.
2. System returns to normal mode.

partitions to which it was assigned, and all
authorization levels and other information about
that user will be deleted. Note that a user can
only be deleted from the partition in which it was
first assigned, and can only be deleted by a user
with a higher authority level. A User's security
code cannot be deleted by oneself.

Accessing Other Partitions
To Access Another Partition
Each keypad is assigned a default partition for display purposes, and will
show only that partition's information. But, if the user is authorized, a
keypad in one partition can be used to perform system functions in other
partitions by using the GOTO command. Note that only those partitions
authorized and programmed by the installer can be accessed in this manner.
To GOTO another partition:
READY
1. Enter your security code, then press
✳
+ partition number (0-8).
Entering partition number 0 will return the keypad to its original
partition.
The keypad will remain in the new partition
AAAA
2. LOG-ON TO
PART. X COMPLETE until directed to go to another partition, or
until 2 minutes has elapsed with no keypad
activity.
AAAA = alpha descriptor programmed by the
installer
X = partition number
Global Arming
The Global Arming option may be assigned for use by some users. If Global
Arming was enabled for use with your security code, a keypad prompt
(message) shown below appears after pressing one of the arming function
keys (STAY, INSTANT, AWAY, MAXIMUM, OFF).
ARM P 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 The prompt displays all the partitions. The user
HIT 0-8 X X X - - X - - may only arm/disarm the partitions they are
assigned access to.
To select the partition(s) that are to be armed,
enter the desired number 1-8. An "X" will appear
under that partition. Entering a partition's
number again will delete the “X” and that
partition will not arm when this prompt is exited.
Pressing 0 will turn all partitions the user is
assigned access to on/off.
When completed, press ✳ to exit. All the partitions
with the “X” will then arm/disarm.

Accessing Other Partitions (cont’d)
Global Arming Notes:
•
•
When performing a Global Arm, if there are faults in any of the selected
partitions, the system will enter a Summary Mode. Faulted zones in all
the selected partitions will be displayed. These faults must be corrected
or bypassed. This Summary Mode will end in approximately 120 seconds
if no keys are pressed.
When performing a Global Disarm, if any of the selected partitions has a
condition, which would cause the keypad to beep (e.g., alarm memory or a
trouble condition), the system enters a Summary Mode and displays the
condition. This Summary Mode will end in approximately 120 seconds if
no keys are pressed.
Master Keypad Operation
A "Master" keypad is one that reflects the status of the entire system
(Partitions 1-8) on its display. This is useful because it eliminates the need
for a security officer in a building to have to "log-on" to various partitions
from one partition's keypad to find out where an alarm has occurred.
A description of a typical display follows:
SYSTEM
STATUS
12345678
RRNNA T✴B
The status of each partition is directly below the partition number on the
display. Possible status indications include:
A = Armed Away
S = Armed Stay
M = Armed Maximum
I = Armed Instant
R = Ready
N = Not Ready
B = Bypassed/Ready ✴ = Alarm
T = Trouble
F = Fire Alarm
P = AC Power Failure L = Low System Battery
C = Comm Fail
To obtain more information regarding a particular partition, enter [✴] +
[Partition No.] (i.e., ✴4). This will allow viewing only of that partition. In
order to affect that partition, the user must log on with a code that has access
to that partition. Also, in order for a user of any partition to log onto the
"Master" partition (Partition 9) to view the status of all partitions, and to
perform any functions at the Master keypad, that user must have access to
all partitions. Otherwise, access will be denied.
– 23 –
Accessing Other Partitions (cont’d)
The following is an example of what would be displayed for a fault condition
on Zone 002 (Loading Dock Window) on Partition 1 (Warehouse) when
logging on from a keypad on Partition 9:
WHSE DISARMED
HIT ✴ FOR FAULTS
This is the normal display that appears at Partition 1's keypad(s). Pressing ✴
will display:
FAULT 002 LOADING
DOCK WINDOW
Additional zone faults will be displayed one at a time. To display a new
partition's status, press ✴ + [Partition No.]. This will display the status of
the new partition.
The "Armed" LED on a Master keypad will be lit only if all partitions have
been armed successfully. The "Ready" LED will be lit only if all partitions
are "ready to arm."
The sounder on a Master keypad will reflect the sound of the most critical
condition on all of the partitions. The priority of the sounds is as follows:
A. Pulsing fire alarm sounds
B. Steady burglar alarm sounds
C. Trouble sounds
The sounder may be silenced by pressing any key on the Master keypad.

Accessing Other Partitions (cont’d)
Common Lobby Operation
When an installation consists of a partition that is shared by users of other
partitions in a building, that shared partition may be assigned as a “common
lobby” partition for the system. An example of this might be in a medical
building where there are two doctors and a common entrance area.
This option employs logic for automatic arming and disarming of the common
lobby. Partitions may be set to affect and/or attempt to arm the common
lobby. This will affect the way the lobby will react when arming or disarming
activity occurs in another partition.
Partitions that affect the lobby will cause the following to occur:
a. When the first partition that affects the lobby is disarmed, the lobby will
also be disarmed.
b. The common lobby cannot be armed unless every partition selected to
affects the lobby is armed.
c. Arming the last partition that affects the lobby will not automatically
attempt to arm the lobby.
Partitions set to arm the lobby will cause the following to occur:
a. When the first partition that affects the lobby is disarmed, the lobby will
also be disarmed.
b. The common lobby cannot be armed unless every partition selected to
affects the lobby is armed.
c. Arming the last partition programmed to arm the lobby will
automatically attempt to arm the lobby. If any faults exist in the lobby
partition, or another partition that affects the lobby is disarmed, the
lobby cannot be armed, and the message “UNABLE TO ARM LOBBY
PARTITION” will be displayed.
The following chart summarizes how the common lobby partition will

How User Codes Affect the Common Lobby
Codes with “ Global” Arming
If your code is given “global arming” when it is defined, the system displays a
prompt that allows you to pick and choose the partitions to be armed or
disarmed. This eliminates the “automatic” operation of the lobby. Keep in
mind, however, that if attempting to arm all the partitions you have access
to, and another affecting partition is disarmed, (one you do not have access
to) you will not be able to arm the lobby, and the message “UNABLE TO
ARM LOBBY PARTITON” will be displayed.
Codes with “ Non-Global” Arming
If arming with a non-global code, the lobby partition operation will be
automatic, as described in the previous table.
Other Methods of Arming/Disarming
When arming or disarming a partition that affects and/or arms the common
lobby in one of the following manners, lobby logic remains active:
• Quick-Arm
• Keyswitch
• Wireless Button
• Wireless Keypad

(if connected) and will sound a loud, steady alarm at your keypad and at any
external sounders that may be connected (ALARM plus a zone number
would also be displayed).
A personal emergency alarm sends an emergency message to the central
station (if connected) and will sound at Keypads, but not at external bells or
sirens. (ALARM plus a zone number would also be displayed.)
A fire alarm sends a fire alarm message to the central station and will
uniquely sound external bells and sirens (FIRE plus a zone number would
also be displayed).

Speed Key (Macros)
General Information
The “A”, “B”, “C”, and/or “D” keys can be used to activate a string of
commands up to 32 keystrokes each. These commands are known as a macro
and are stored in the system’s memory. Typical Speed Key functions include:
• Arming sequences that involve first bypassing certain zones before
arming.
• Seldom used but repeatable sequences.
• Relay activation sequences.
NOTE: If a speedkey function includes an arming sequence and the user
executing it has global arming, all partitions the user can global arm will
arm.
Defining
To program a macro, enter your user code + [#] + [D]. The following appears:
ENTER SPEED KEY #
01-32
00=QUIT
Enter the 2-digit Speed Key number (01-32) being defined and press [*].
Enter up to 32 keystrokes. A Speed Key sequence can include different
commands. Press the "D" key to separate different commands. For example,
you may want to perform the following sequence.
GOTO partition 2......................Enter *2
Bypass zones 10 & 11 ...............Press bypass [6], then the zone numbers 010
& 011
Arm in maximum mode............Press maximum [4] key
Return to partition 1.................Enter *1
To program that Speed Key sequence, type the following:
*2 D 6010011 D 4 D *1 D D
Note that the "D" key is pressed after each command. Press "D" twice to
complete the entry and exit.
NOTE: When defining Speed Key sequences, do not use the [#] key to
represent Quick Arming. The system uses the code entered in response to
the prompt to initiate commands in a Speed Key sequence, so the quick arm
key is unnecessary. The system interprets the use of the [#] key in a Speed
Key sequence as its designated function only.

Using Schedules
Delaying the Closing Time
Your system's programmed schedules may automatically arm the system at a
predetermined time. In the event a user must stay on the premises later than
usual, users with master or manager authority levels can manually delay the
automatic arming (closing) time up to 2 hours. To delay the closing time:
1. Enter your security code (master or manager authority levels only).
2. Press the # key, followed by 82.
3. A menu prompt will be displayed, asking for the number of hours of delay.
CLOSING DELAY?
KEY 0-2 HOURS
Enter the desired number of hours of delay, 1 or 2.
The system automatically exits this mode after
entry.
Note that the delay is from the scheduled closing time, not from the
time the command is entered.
IMPORTANT: The selected delay cannot be reduced once it is set. A 1
hour delay can be increased to 2 hours, though.
4. The system will automatically send a message to the central station
informing them that the programmed schedule has been changed.
Temporary Open/Close Schedules
Temporary schedules allow you to override the normal schedules
programmed by the installer. Temporary schedules can be in effect for up to
one week, and take effect as soon as they are programmed.
They are comprised of an arming (closing) time window and a disarming
(opening) time window. A time window is simply a defined period of time, at
the end of which arming or disarming will occur.
Before programming, use a worksheet similar to the one below to plan your
schedule. This will make it easier when actually programming the schedule.

Programming Device Timers
General Information
Device timers consist of an ON time & an OFF time, and selected days of the
week in which they are active. There are up to 20 timers that can be used to
control various devices, such as lights or appliances. Your installer will have
programmed the appropriate devices into the system (up to 96 devices can be
programmed).
Each timer controls a single device (designated as an output number) that
you select. For example, timer 1 might be set to turn the porch lights on at
7:00pm and turn them off at 11:00pm. Timer 2 might turn on the air
conditioner Monday-Friday at 4:30pm to cool the premises before you arrive
at 5:00pm, and turn it off at 10:00pm when you are retiring for the night. If
desired, different timers can control the same device. For example, timer 2
could be used Monday-Friday as in the previous example, and timer 3 could
be set to turn the air conditioner on and off at different times Saturday and
Sunday.
To enter the device timer menu mode:
Enter your security code, then press the # key followed by 83.

IMMEDIATELY.
4. The keypad will sound a single beep every 15 seconds as a reminder that the system is
in Test mode. Each time a protection zone is faulted (opened), the keypad should beep
three times. If the sounder does not sound, CALL FOR SERVICE IMMEDIATELY.
Notes:
No alarm reports will be sent to the central monitoring station while the system is in Test
•
mode.
The system will automatically exit the Test mode if there is no activity (no doors or
•
windows are opened and closed, no motion detectors are activated, etc.) for 30 minutes.
The system will beep the keypad(s) twice every 5 seconds during the last 5 minutes as a
warning that it is about to exit the Test mode and return to normal operation.
Testing Your System
1. Open and close each protected door and window in turn and listen for three beeps.
Each faulted protection point should appear on the display.
2. Walk in front of any motion detectors (if used) and listen for three beeps as
movement is detected (wireless motion detectors have a 3-1/2 minute lockout
between trips). Each detector’s should appear on the display when it is activated.
3. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to test all smoke detectors to ensure that all
are functioning properly. Each detector should appear on the display when activated.
4. When all protection points have been checked, there should be no zone identification
numbers displayed. If a problem is experienced with any protection point (no
confirming sounds, no display), CALL FOR SERVICE IMMEDIATELY.
5. Turn off Test mode by entering the security code + the OFF key.
– 62 –
Fire Alarm System
Your fire alarm system (if installed) is on 24 hours a day, providing
continuous protection. In the event of an emergency, the smoke and heat
detectors automatically send signals to your Control, triggering a loud
interrupting sound from the keypad and the optional exterior sounders.
FIRE appears at your keypad and remains on until you silence the alarm.
In Case Of Fire Alarm
1. Should you become aware of a fire emergency before your detectors sense
the problem, go to your nearest keypad and manually initiate an alarm
by pressing the panic key assigned as FIRE emergency (if programmed
by the installer) and hold down for at least 2 seconds.
2. Evacuate all occupants from the premises.
3. If flames and/or smoke are present, leave the premises and notify your
local Fire Department immediately.
4. If no flames or smoke are apparent, investigate the cause of the alarm.
The descriptor of the zone(s) in alarm appears at the keypad.
Silencing A Fire Alarm
1. Silence the alarm by entering your code and pressing the OFF key. To
clear the display, enter your code and press the OFF key again
2. If the keypad does not indicate a READY condition after the second OFF
sequence, press the READY key to display the zone(s) that are faulted.
Be sure to check that smoke detectors are not responding to smoke or
heat producing objects in their vicinity. Should this be the case,
eliminate the source of heat or smoke.
3. If this does not remedy the problem, there may still be smoke in the
detector. Clear it by fanning the detector for about 30 seconds.
4. You can clear the display by entering your code + the OFF key.

Recommendations For Proper Protection
The following recommendations for the location of fire and burglary detection
devices help provide proper coverage for the protected premises.
Recommendations For Smoke And Heat Detectors
With regard to the number and placement of smoke/heat detectors, we subscribe to the
recommendations contained in the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) Standard
#72 noted below.
Early warning fire detection is best achieved by the installation of fire detection
equipment in all rooms and areas of the household as follows: For minimum protection
a smoke detector should be installed outside of each separate sleeping area, and on each
additional floor of a multi-floor family living unit, including basements. The installation
of smoke detectors in kitchens, attics (finished or unfinished), or in garages is not
normally recommended.
For additional protection 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.

Recommendations For Proper Protection (cont’d)
In addition, we recommend the following:
ƒ Install a smoke detector inside every bedroom where a smoker sleeps.
ƒ Install a smoke detector inside bedrooms where electrical appliances (such as portable
heaters, air conditioners or humidifiers) are used.
ƒ Install a smoke detector inside every bedroom where someone sleeps with the door partly
or completely closed. Smoke could be blocked by the closed door. Also, an alarm in the
hallway outside may not wake up the sleeper if the door is closed.
ƒ Install a smoke detector at both ends of a hallway if the hallway is more than 40 feet (12
meters) long.
ƒ Install smoke detectors in any room where an alarm control is located, or in any room
where alarm control connections to an AC source or phone lines are made. If detectors are
not so located, a fire within the room could prevent the control from reporting a fire or an
intrusion.
Recommendations For Proper Intrusion Protection
For proper intrusion coverage, sensors should be located at every possible point of entry to a
home or commercial premises. This would include any skylights that may be present, and
the upper windows in a multi-level building.
In addition, we recommend that radio backup be used in a security system so that alarm
signals can still be sent to the alarm monitoring station in the event that the telephone lines
are out of order (alarm signals are normally sent over the phone lines, if connected to an
alarm monitoring station).
– 67 –
Emergency Evacuation
Establish and regularly practice a plan of escape in the event of fire. The following steps are
recommended by the National Fire Protection Association:
1. 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 may be a window, should your path be impassable. Station an
escape ladder at such windows if there is a long drop to the ground.
3. 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.
4. 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. Where smoke is present, crawl on the ground; do not walk upright.
Smoke rises and may overcome you. Clearer air is near the floor.
7. Escape quickly; don't panic.
8. Establish a common meeting 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.

Maintaining Your System
Taking Care of Your System
The components of your security system are designed to be as free of
maintenance as possible. However, there are some things you can do to make
sure that your system is in reliable working condition.
1. Test your system weekly.
2. Test the system after any alarm occurs (see TESTING THE SYSTEM).
Replacing Batteries in Wireless Sensors
Wireless sensors
may not have
been used in your
security system
Each wireless sensor in your system has a 9-volt or 3-volt battery. The system
detects a low battery in any wireless sensor, including smoke detectors, the
optional personal emergency transmitter, and the optional portable wireless
keypad. (A low battery in a portable wireless keypad is detected as soon as
one of its keys is pressed, and the keypad will display 00.)
Alkaline batteries provide a minimum of 1 year of operation, and in most
units and applications, provide 2–4 years of service. 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 or large swings
in temperature, may all lead to the reduction of actual battery life in an
installation.
If you have a low battery in a wireless sensor, a low battery message
is displayed on the keypad.
In addition, a battery-operated smoke detector with a low battery also emits
a single "chirp" sound once approximately every 20-30 seconds, identifying
itself as the smoke detector with the weak battery. If you do not replace a
smoke detector's low battery, the smoke detector may sound continuously, as
if there were a fire alarm.
Note: The low battery message comes on as a warning that battery
replacement in indicated sensor(s) is due within 30 days. In the meantime,
the sensor(s) causing the low battery indication is still fully operational.
Important: Use only batteries recommended by your installer as
replacement.
– 69 –
Maintaining Your System (cont’d)
Silencing Low Battery Warning Tones at the Keypad
The keypad’s warning tones can be silenced by performing an OFF sequence
(code plus OFF key), but the Keypad's low battery message display will
remain on as a reminder that you have a low battery condition in one or more
of your sensors. When you replace the weak battery with a fresh one, the
sensor will send a "good battery" signal to the control as soon as the sensor is
activated (opening/closing of door, window, etc.), causing the low battery
display to turn off. If the sensor is not activated, the display will
automatically clear within approximately 1 hour.
Routine Care
•
•
•
– 70 –
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.

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.

LIMITED WARRANTY
Pittway Corporation, and its divisions, subsidiaries and affiliates ("Seller"), 165 Eileen Way, Syosset, New
York 11791, warrants its First Alert products to be in conformance with its own plans and specifications and
to be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use and service for 36 months from the
date stamp control on the product or, for products not having a date stamp, for 30 months from date of
original purchase unless the installation instructions or catalog sets forth a shorter period, in which case the
shorter period shall apply. Seller's obligation shall be limited to repairing or replacing, at its option, free of
charge for materials or labor, any product which is proved not in compliance with Seller's specifications or
proves defective in materials or workmanship under normal use and service. Seller shall have no obligation
under this Limited Warranty or otherwise if the product is altered or improperly repaired or serviced by
anyone other than First Alert Professional factory service. For warranty service, return product transportation
prepaid, to:
First Alert Professional Factory Service, 165 Eileen Way, Syosset, New York 11791.
THERE ARE NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF MERCHANTABILITY, OR FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR OTHERWISE, WHICH EXTEND BEYOND THE DESCRIPTION ON THE
FACE HEREOF. IN NO CASE SHALL SELLER BE LIABLE TO ANYONE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL 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.
Seller does not represent that the products it sells may not be compromised or circumvented; that the
products will prevent any personal injury or property loss by burglary, robbery, fire or otherwise; or that the
products will in all cases provide adequate warning or protection. Customer understands that a properly
installed and maintained alarm may only reduce the risk of a burglary, robbery, fire or other events occurring
without providing an alarm, but it is not insurance or a guarantee that such will not occur or that there will be
no personal injury or property loss as a result. CONSEQUENTLY, SELLER SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY
FOR ANY PERSONAL INJURY, PROPERTY DAMAGE OR OTHER LOSS BASED ON A CLAIM THE
PRODUCT FAILED TO GIVE WARNING. HOWEVER, IF SELLER IS HELD LIABLE, WHETHER
DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE ARISING UNDER THIS LIMITED
WARRANTY OR OTHERWISE, REGARDLESS OF CAUSE OR ORIGIN, SELLER'S MAXIMUM LIABILITY
SHALL NOT IN ANY CASE EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT, WHICH SHALL BE
THE COMPLETE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AGAINST SELLER. This warranty replaces any previous
warranties and is the only warranty made by Seller on this product. No increase or alteration, written or
verbal, of the obligations of this Limited Warranty is authorized.
