Note: You need to have Administrator Authority or select 'Run as Administrator' to install
Remote Link software.
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
You also need the following items:
800 x 600 or higher resolution monitor
CD-ROM drive
One available COM port if connecting to an SCS-1 or SCS-1R, SCS-105, or direct connecting to a
panel. Two available Com ports if using the pass-through feature.
Note: If using Remote Link on Windows 7 or Windows Vista under Standard Operator
authority, see Installing Link on Windows Vista or Windows 7.
Using a Virtual Environment:
Remote Link may be installed and used in a virtualized environment, provided that the virtual machine
is running an operating system listed in the Supported Operating Systems table. When running in a
virtualized environment, additional configuration of the virtual machine’s TCP and serial ports may be
required.
This section outlines specific steps to install and use Link on Windows Vista or Windows 7.
Operating System Privileges
The two types of Operating System user accounts referenced in this section are: administrator and
standard user accounts. These types of accounts have different privileges that allow or restrict the
functions a user can perform.
From the Windows 7 documentation: “Standard account users can use most software and change
system settings that do not affect other users or the security of the computer. Administrators have
complete access to the computer and can make any desired changes. Based on notification settings,
administrators may be asked to provide their password or confirmation before making changes that
affect other users.”
Link Operator Privileges
A Link operator is an individual that interacts with Link to perform a task. Operators may use Link
daily, or on an as-needed basis. However, all operators must log in to Link before most tasks can be
performed. Link allows privileges to be granted and/or removed to operator accounts. The privileges
are managed in the System > Operator Configuration screen. For the purposes of this document, it will
be assumed there are only two types of Link operators: administrators and standard operators. A Link
administrator has Administrator special permissions, a standard operator does not. See the Operator
Configuration section of the Link help for more information on operator privileges.
Roles
There are three roles discussed in this section. Note that an individual may serve more than one role
for an organization.
Workstation Administrator – has administrator access to the workstation operating system.
Link Administrator – has limited operating system privileges and administrator operator privileges
within the Link application. This also applies to Link Server administrators.
Link Operator – has limited operating system privileges and may also have limited Link operator
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
privileges.
The remainder of this document will assume a ‘typical’ organizational structure and Link
configuration. This is defined as:
There are one or more Workstation Administrators who perform maintenance of the
workstations. Workstation Administrators only interact with Link for installation, maintenance
and decommission.
There is at least one Link Administrator who performs operator management tasks within Link.
The Link Administrator interacts with Link on an as-needed basis.
There are one or more Link Operators who use Link on a daily basis. Link Operators cannot
perform Link installation, maintenance or management tasks.
Installing
A Workstation Administrator must perform installation of Remote Link, System Link or Link Server. A
Workstation Administrator must also perform any version upgrades to Remote Link and Link
Server. Any Link modules (e.g. Account Groups) should be activated at the time of installation by the
Workstation Administrator. See Registering and Activating Modules section of Link Help.
Registry Keys
Once Remote Link and all modules are installed, the Workstation Administrator should give Link
Administrators Full Control access to modify the DMP key shown and its sub-keys.
A Link Operator does not require any additional registry privileges.
The primary registry key that Link uses to store application data is:
\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Digital Monitoring Products\
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
Registry Editor showing Link Registry Key
Database
This section discusses Database setup for Remote Link and System Link. For information on
configuring a Link Server database, refer to the Link Server section of this document.
If a Link Administrator is not a Workstation Administrator, then the Link database should not be
located in a system drive, such as C:\ or C:\Program Files. Locating the Link database in a non-system
directory will allow the Link Administrator to manage and move the database without requiring the
assistance of the Workstation Administrator.
The Workstation Administrator should grant Link Administrators and Link Operators full access to the
database folder (and subfolders) and the Link installation folder (and subfolders). This should be done
irrespective of the database location.
Link Server
This section discusses information specific to Link Server. Link Server allows multiple Remote Link
client workstations to use a single database. After Link Server is installed by a Workstation
Administrator, it may be used in day-to-day operation by a Link Operator.
DBISAM Database Server
The primary component that differentiates Link Server from other Link installations is the DBISAM
Database Server, a SQL database service. Once Link Server is installed, the DBISAM Database Server
should start automatically when the workstation is started. A Workstation Administrator can start and
stop the service using the Services tool. A Link Operator should not be able to stop the service. All
Link Operator workstations that run Remote Link must be able to establish a TCP/IP connection to the
DBISAM Database Server address and port.

Link Server Database Service
Remote Link offers an updated interface that is simple to navigate, and provides easy access to the
information you are most likely to need.
The Window menu allows you to switch between the windows you have open in Remote Link, or to
organize the way you view them. You may also switch between windows within Remote Link by holding
down the Ctrl and Tab buttons at the same time.
File > Close Panel will close the account file and all windows you currently have open.
File > Exit will close all windows you have open, disconnect you from a panel if you are connected, and
exit from Remote Link.
Clicking Apply applies all changes you have made in that window.
Clicking OK saves any changes you have made in that window and closes the window.
Your Remote Link database contains your subscriber account information, your password information,
and other valuable data. It is important to protect this information by performing regular backups of
the database.
Please backup your Remote Link database!
You can find the location of the Remote Link database by selecting System > Configure > Remote
Link to open the Remote Link Configuration window. Click on the Database tab near the top of the
window. The Database Location field will display the path to your database.
If you would like to store your Remote Link database in a different location than the default folder,
enter the location that you prefer for your Remote Link database in the Database Location field
before setting up any accounts.
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
Note: Do not attempt to move an existing database by changing the location listed in the
Database Location field. See instructions about creating a new database location.
If you change the location listed in the Database Location field without first moving the database
manually, you will receive a message asking, "Do you wish to create a new database?" If you click OK,
Remote Link creates a new database at the location that you just assigned and ignores the previous
database. This means you will not have access to any previous account information and
configurations settings from the previously existing Remote Link database.
Note: If you are using Remote Link on a computer connected to a network, run the Remote
Link program from your local hard drive, not from a network drive. Remote Link accesses the
database more quickly if the database is located on the local computer than if it is located on
a network drive. Only one computer at a time may use a Remote Link database.
S ystem > L o g O N / O FF

The settings in the Database tab allow you to change the location where Remote Link stores data on
your computer's hard drive. It also allows you to backup and purge your Remote Link database, as well
as merge another Remote Link database into the existing or import your Remote Access database into
Remote Link.
Note: Before performing any database maintenance function, it is recommended that you
backup the Remote Link database folder to prevent the possible loss of valuable data.
You may move your Remote Link database to a folder on your computer hard drive, or to any
connected network drive.
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
S ystem > Co n fig u re > Rem o te L in k > D atab ase Tab
General Options
Database Location
Computer Hard Drive: Enter the path to the Remote Link database location on the computer or
network hard drive. If you would like to store your Remote Link database in a different location than
the default folder, type the location in the Database Location field. You may also browse for the folder
where you would like to place your Remote Link database by clicking on the button just to the right of
the Database Location field with three small dots.
The database may also be stored on a remote network server. This option allows more than three
Remote Link computers to perform extensive database operations at the same time. Refer to the Link
Server Installation Sheet (LT-0837).
Network Server: To use Remote Link with Link Server, enter the network server IP address and port
number to the Remote Link database location. The default port number is 12005. Check with your Link
Server administrator for the correct IP address and port number and enter the information using the
following format:
server: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:ppppp
x = IP Address
p = Port Number
Note: Standard Remote Link operation supports database access for up to three computers as
long as only one computer at a time performs extensive database access operations such as
uploading or downloading information from a panel. If more computers or more extensive
simultaneous database access is required, it is recommended the Link Server software be
installed on a network server.
Database Relocation: To manually move your Remote Link database, use Windows Explorer and copy
the complete database folder (usually "C:\Link\Db") and paste to the desired location. Go to the
Database Location field and either type the new location of the database into the field or click the
browse button to locate where you have relocated the database.
If you change the location listed in the Database Location field without first moving the database
manually, Remote Link displays a message asking, "Do you wish to create a new database?" If you click
on OK, Remote Link creates a new database at the location that you just assigned and ignores the
previous database. This means that Remote Link does not have access to any previous account
information and configurations settings from the previously existing Remote Access database.
Note: If you are using Windows 2000 or XP, only users with administrative privileges in
Windows can relocate the database. If a user without administrative privileges attempts to
move the database, Remote Link does not save the attempted relocation.
If Remote Link does not start up correctly, one cause could be an invalid database location. Use the
command line option "/dblocation" to set the path to the database. Go to Start > Run and type c:\Link
\Link.exe /dblocation LOCATION.

\Backup tells Remote Link to place the Backup database in the Backup folder on the C drive of your
computer.
You may also browse for the folder where you would like to place your Remote Link Backup Database.
To browse for the location where you wish to place the database, click on the button with three small
dots just to the right of the Database Location field.
When the database resides on a network server, check with your System Administrator. The backup
function cannot be performed for a database that resides on a server.
You may choose to have Remote Link remind you when it is time to backup your database. Click the
"Remind me to backup after" checkbox. Then enter the number of days you would like between
backup reminders.
Click OK when finished entering in all of the fields. You may also click Backup to run the backup
immediately or at any time to run a non-scheduled backup.
When it is time for a scheduled backup, a pop-up window will appear when it is time to backup the
database. If you select Yes the pop-up window closes and opens the Backup Options dialog box. Click
the Backup button to perform the scheduled Backup.
If you select No, another pop-up window will appear the next time you log on to Remote Link.

A SOCKS proxy server is a server-based computer application used to transfer data between client
computers using a set of filtering rules for enhanced security. SOCKS is an abbreviation for "sockets,"
which are connection points on the Internet. The SOCKS Internet protocol serves to keep client
machines safe and anonymous for security purposes and to help speed up the access of routinely
accessed data, especially when used in conjunction with a firewall.
How SOCKS works
SOCKS works as a client/server. A users’ workstation must have a SOCKS client installed, either in the
application (such as putty, Firefox), or in the TCP/IP where the client software redirects packets into
a SOCKS tunnel.
The SOCKS client will initiate a connection to a SOCKS server. The SOCKS protocol allows
authentication and logging of the connection requests.
The SOCKS server then acts as the IP Client for the connection request. This means that the external
server is only aware of the SOCKS Server (the proxy).
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
SOCKS has the following key features:
provides authentication for protocols that cannot be authenticated
by passes default routing in the internal network
SOCKS requirements:
the client program must have a SOCKS client capability
the client operating system must have SOCKS client capability
you must run and maintain a SOCKS server
Version: Select the SOCKS Proxy version from the pull down menu.
Host: Enter the IP address of the SCS-101, SCS-104, iCOM or iCOM-E installed in the SCS-1 or SCS-1R
receiver.
Port: Enter the port through which you will connect to the panel. number 1 to 65535.

S16 & S17 Always: When disabled, the S16 Panel Not Responding message is sent to the
automation computer for each supervised account that has stopped sending check-in messages unless
50 S16 messages have been generated for different accounts within one minute. This could occur
because the network has failed. Once this occurs, S72 Network Trouble is sent and the receiver stops
sending S16 messages to the automation computer. The receiver sends S73 Network Restored and will
begin sending S16 messages after the receiver starts receiving check-in messages again.
When enabled, the S16 Panel Not Responding message is always sent to the automation computer for
each supervised account that has stopped sending check-in messages without regard to the number of
accounts generating S16 messages.
When enabled, the S17 Panel Response Restored message is sent to the automation computer each
time a supervised account checks in for the first time after installation. This also occurs at an
account’s first check-in after the receiver or SCS-104 is powered-up. Default is disabled.
Acknowledge Panel Substitution Message: When selected, the SCS-104 replies with an
acknowledgment to messages sent by substituted panels. See the Substitution Code section of the
panel programming guide for the definition of a substituted panel. The SCS-104 generates only one
S58 Alarm: Panel Substitution message to the host automation computer and receiver printer for each
substituted panel. Subsequent messages from substituted panels do not generate additional S58
messages.
When not selected, substituted panels are not sent acknowledgments for their messages. For each
message received from a substituted panel, an S58 Alarm: Panel Substitution message is sent to the
host automation computer and receiver printer.
Note: Select this option for all receiver installations except for Canadian receiver installations

Note: When a panel trap is set for a panel that uses Network communication type, Remote
Link sends a panel trap message with the panel account number to the SCS-1 or SCS-1R, iCOM
or iCOM-E IP address entered in the TCP Trap tab in Remote Link configuration. The trap
message contains the IP address for the panel iCOM or iCOM-E to use to contact Remote Link
using TCP protocol. The trap message is stored in the receiver iCOM or iCOM-E for up to four
hours. If the trap message is not sent to the panel within the four-hour window, the trap will
be discarded and a new panel trap message must be sent from Remote Link.
When a panel trap message is sent from the receiver iCOM or iCOM-E to a panel, the panel
iCOM or iCOM-E initiates a programming session with Remote Link using the address
specified in the original trap message. Once the programming session starts, the panel iCOM
or iCOM-E sends an S51 Warning: Remote Programming message to the Central Station
indicating a successful connection and that a remote programming session is in progress. This
allows the central station to be aware that a supervised account is being remote programmed.

D2: D2 displays on the Backup Type menu if Host/Net is selected under Communication Type.
Select D2 to supervise a second telephone line using an optional Model 893 or 893A Dual Phone
Line Module.
RS-232: On XR500 Series version 118 or higher, RS-232 displays on Backup Type menu if Network
is selected under Communication Type.
Messages are sent using RS-232 after they have failed to communicate with the programmed
Primary NET IP and Backup IP. Select RS-232 when using DB-9 backup communications by directly
connecting to the RS-232 port on the panel. Set the panel J23 jumper to R and briefly reset the
panel using the J16 jumper to activate RS-232 operation. Refer to the XR500 Series Installation
Guide.
When Net Backup is YES and a Modem String is programmed, an Automatic Recall Test is sent
using the RS-232 line based on the normal programming selections in Test Frequency, Net Fail
Time, Defer Test Time, and Test Time options just as they do for DD. When the RS-232
Automatic Recall Test fails to communicate, a Warning: Panel Backup Communications Fail (S12)
report is sent using the Primary NET IP. The next time the panel successfully sends a report over
the 2ND LINE, a Backup Communication Line Restore (S04) report is sent.
None: When you select None, the panel does not send signals on the second (backup)
communication line.
Digital Dialer (DD): Select Digital Dialer when you are using DMP SDLC format for communication
over standard telephone lines to an SCS-1, SCS-1R or SCS-105 receiver.

Second Line Test: Allows you to test your backup communication line.
The options in the Second Line Test menu are the following four items:
None: When you select None, the panel does not send a test signal on the second (backup)
communication line.
Regular: When you select Regular, the second line will test each time that your main
communications line is programmed for a test.
Weekly: When you select Weekly, the second line sends a test once per week. When Second Line
Test is set to Weekly, the panel disregards test time deferrals (see Defer Test below).
Monthly (30 days): When you select Monthly, a test of the second line will be sent every 30
days. When you select this option the panel disregards test time deferrals (see Defer Test below).
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
Note: On XT Series panels, the backup communication is tested at the same frequency as the
main communication.
Test Time: Enter the time of day that the panel transmits an automatic recall test for the main
communication line. This test signal will verify that communication is working properly between the
panel and the central station.
Test Day: Select the day of the week from the drop-down menu that the panel will send a test signal
on the main communications line to the central station. This will send the test signal once a week.
Selecting All from the Recall Day menu will send the test signal every 24 hours.
Test Time (XR150/XR350/XR550 Series/XR500 Series/
XR2500F/XR100 Series): Select the day of the week or the
number of hours from the drop-down menu. This tells the panel
how often to send a test signal using the main communication
path to the central station. Selecting a day of the week sends a
test signal once a week on that day. Selecting All from the Test
Time menu sends the test signal every 24 hours. If more
frequent testing is required, select 2 hours, 4 hours, 8 hours,
or 12 hours instead of making one of the day selections. When
programmed, the test occurs at the programmed minutes indicated in the Automatic Recall Test
Time.
Test Days (XT Series): Select how often the panel sends a test signal using the main and backup
communication paths to the central station. Only the communication paths that are programmed are
available.
Net Test Days (XTLN, XTLN-WiFi): Select how often the panel sends a test signal using network
communication to the central station.
Cell Test Day (XTL): Select how often the panel sends a test signal using cellular communication to
the central station.
Defer Test: Select Yes to allow the panel to defer the programmed automatic recall test. Select No to
send the test report as programmed, regardless of the previous panel communication. Test Frequency
must also be programmed when Defer Test is set to Yes. Not Available on XT Series or XTL panels.
Test Frequency: This allows you to specify, from 1 to 60 days, the maximum length of time between
automatic recall tests. Not Available on XT Series panels.
Example: Two panels, A and B, are programmed the same: Defer Test is set to Yes and Test
Frequency is set to 7.
Panel A: Panel A sends no signals to the receiver during the seven day Test Frequency cycle. On
the seventh day Panel A sends the automatic recall test to the receiver.
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
Panel B: On the third day of the seven day Test Frequency cycle, Panel B sends a signal to the
receiver. The automatic recall test is not sent to the receiver because Panel B has communicated
with the receiver during the programmed Test Frequency cycle. The seven day cycle is restarted
at the time the signal is received.
Note: These two fields, Defer Test and Test Frequency, should have the same value as the
Auto Recall Frequency and Allow Test Deferrals fields in File > Panel Information > Extended

The fields explained below are available for the XR200 (version 110 and below) and the XR200485 (version 203 and below).
Host Check-in Time: Enter the time (00 to 60 minutes) that you want the panel to wait
between sending check-in reports to the receiver.
Since Host/Net mode is not a polled communication method, the check-in reports allow an SCS-1
or SCS-1R Receiver to confirm the communication link with the panel.
Enter AA in the Host Check-in Time field to program the panel to send the check-in report at
random times. While all areas are disarmed, the panel sends the report at random times, but
always within 60 minutes. When any area is armed, the panel sends the report every six
minutes. The SCS-1 or SCS-1R Receiver will verify that it receives each check-in report at the
appropriate time.
If the Host check-in on the main communication line fails, the panel sends a "Warning: Network
Trouble" report to the central station on the backup communication line. The next time the
panel sends a report, the panel sends a "Network Restored" report over the backup
communication line.
To program the panel to not send any check-in reports, enter 0 (zero) in the Host Check-in Time
field.
Host Setup String: Enter a dial string up to 32 characters long for the panel to send to the

Receiver IP: Enter the IP address of the receiver programmed in the Receiver 1 Tab. This address is
used to communicate messages over the network.
Receiver Port: Enter the port of the receiver. The default port is 2001.
Net Setup String: Enter a dial string up to 32 characters long for the panel to send to the on-board
Ethernet J1 connector or a network device connected to a 462N Network Interface Card. You may also
enter an IP Address with a setup string. If you are using a non-DMP network device such as a CDPD
Modem, refer to the device literature for the setup string. If your backup network device is an iCOM/
iCOM-E, enter the following setup string: AT#UCXXX.XXX.XXX.XXX#PPPPP. The Xs represent the
IP Address, and the Ps represent the port number. The default port number is 2001.
If Net Backup is not enabled and the device connected to the 462N card is a DMP network device, do
not enter the Net Setup String in this field. If the device is not a DMP network device, enter the
device Net Setup String in this field.
If Net Backup is enabled and you are using the on-board Ethernet J1 connector and one 462N Card,
enter the Net Setup String for the second network device. The Net Setup String is sent to the
second network device, such as a cellular modem, which sends the messages to the receiver. If the
backup network device is a second iCOM/iCOM-E, you do not need to enter the Net Setup String.
If Net Backup is enabled and you are using one 462N Card or the Ethernet connector of an XR500N,
XR500E or XR2500F, enter the Net Setup String (backup IP address) address to send the messages to
a backup receiver. The panel attempts to send messages to the receiver using the Remote IP Address
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
programmed in the iCOM/iCOM-E. If the first attempt fails, the panel uses the Net Setup String to
send the messages to the backup receiver.
Note: If NET Backup and UL AA are enabled, the panel only sends the S72 (WARNING:
NETWORK TROUBLE) message after the first series of network message attempts fails.
Note: If you are using a non-DMP network device and an iCOM/iCOM-E, use the non-DMP
device as the backup device. If not, the Net Setup String overrides the IP Address of the
iCOM/iCOM-E and is not used for the non-DMP network device.
Retry Time: Enter the number of seconds (3 to 15 seconds) the panel should wait before retrying to
send a message to the receiver if an acknowledgment was not received. The panel retries as many
times as possible for a period of one minute before sending a network trouble message. For example,
if Retry Time is set to 15, the panel retries four times. The default Retry Time is 5 seconds.
Net Backup Enable: Check the Net Backup Enable checkbox to enable Net Backup and require panel
messages to be sent to a backup IP Address if the messages fail to communicate to the remote
(primary) IP address. Leave the box empty to disable Net Backup. For more information about the
Net Backup feature, refer to Host/Net Backup Examples in the help file.
When Net Backup is enabled and the J23 jumper on the XR500 panel is set to R, panel messages are
sent through the RS-232 serial port. Refer to the XR500 Series Installation Guide (LT-0681), or the
XR2500F Installation Guide (LT-0759).
Note: Second line programming is available for dialer communication types such as CELL or DD
to backup network communications.
Supervised Backup Enable: Check the Supervise Backup Enable checkbox to enable supervised
communication and send checkins to the network Central Station receiver for the Network Backup.
Leave the box empty to disable supervised communication.
Programming options for supervision of Network Backup is provided by the same options used by the
Communications Type programming for UL AA, Check In Time, and Fail Time. If Substitution Code is
enabled, then it is automatically enabled for Network Backup. When Supervise Backup is enabled, Net
Trouble only displays on the keypad if both primary and backup IP address communications fail.
UL AA Enable: Select the box to enable UL AA Mode. UL AA involves check-in reports. Check-in
reports are a method of supervising the panel communication with the receiver. To be UL AA
compliant, panels must check-in with the receiver every 6 minutes when armed. By default, UL AA is
not enabled.
The SCS-1 or SCS-1R Receiver verifies that the next Check-in report is received at the appropriate
time. SCS-1 version 805 or higher firmware is required in the SCS-1 Receiver. When UL AA is
enabled and the check-in fails after one minute, the panel sends a WARNING: NETWORK TROUBLE
(S72) report on the 2ND LINE. The next time the NET report is successfully sent, the panel sends a
NETWORK RESTORED (S73) report over the 2ND LINE.
Note: Network Trouble, Network Fail Notification, is automatically enabled when UL AA is
enabled. Network Trouble allows the panel to detect a failure of the primary network and send
an S72, Network Trouble message, through the DD if it is programmed as the second line.
When the primary network restores the panel sends an S73, Network Restored, message.
Disarm Check-in: If you enable UL AA, this field displays. Enter the number of minutes, from 1 to 6
or R, between disarmed check-in reports. If any area is armed, the report is automatically sent every
6 minutes.
Enter R in the Disarm Check-in field to program the panel to send the check-in report at random
times, but always between 5 to 60 minutes.
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
Substitution Code Enable: If UL AA is disabled, the Substitution Code Enable field is enabled. Check
the box if the panel sends a Panel Substitution Code when communicating with the receiver. The
Panel Substitution Code increases the level of security by helping to ensure that the panel sending the
message to the receiver has not been substituted by another panel. By default, the Substitution Code
is not enabled. When UL AA is enabled, the substitution code is always sent.
Check-in Time: If you disable UL AA, enter the number of minutes, from 0 to 240, between check-in
reports. This occurs when the panel is armed or disarmed. Check-in reports are a method of
supervising the panel for communication with the receiver. When 0 (Zero) is entered, the check-in
feature is disabled. By default, the Check-in Time is 6 minute.
Fail Time: Allows the receiver to miss multiple check-ins before logging that the panel is missing. For
example, if Check-in Time is set to 10 and Fail Time is set to 30, the receiver only indicates a Panel
Not Responding after 30 minutes. The panel attempts to send the message every 10 minutes.
The Fail Time must be equal to or greater than the Check-in Time. For example, if the Check-in Time
is 10 minutes, the Fail Time should be 10 minutes or more. The maximum Fail Time is 240 minutes.
By default, the Fail Time is 6 minute.
Notify Network Trouble: Sends a notification when there is trouble with the network. When UL AA is
enabled, this feature is automatically enabled. When Notify Network Trouble is enabled and the panel
detects a failure of the primary network, the panel sends an S72, Network Trouble message, through
the digital dialer (DD) if it is programmed as the second line. Also, the trouble keypads sound a
continuous tone and display "NETWORK -TRBL." Press any key to silence the tone.
When the primary network restores the panel sends an S73, Network Restored message, through the
digital dialer (DD) if it is programmed as the second line. The "NETWORK -TRBL" display is removed
from the keypad and the tone automatically silences.
Net Test Enable: Check this box to send an S97 network communication test message to the Central
Station receiver over the network based on the Test Time and frequency programmed in
Communications.
Note: The S97 test message is specific to network operation. The S88 and S07 messages are
specific to and only sent using the digital dialer. Having separate test messages for network
and digital dialer operation allows the Central Station to identify the communication path used
to send the message.
Net Fail Test: The time programmed in Net Fail Test increases the dialer test frequency programmed
in Test Time during a network failure. Select a 2, 4, or 8-hour interval between digital dialer contact
attempts. The digital dialer sends an S88, Automatic Recall Unrestored System message or an S07,
Automatic Recall Test message at the programmed minutes indicated in the Automatic Recall Test
Time. Select 0 (zero) to disable more frequent digital dialer testing when NET communications fail.
Default is 0 (zero).

if Retry Time is set to 15, the panel will retry 4 times. The default Retry Time is 5 seconds.
Check-in Time: Enter the number of minutes (between 0 to 240 minutes) between check-in reports.
This occurs when the panel is armed or disarmed. Check-in reports are a method of supervising the
panel for communication with the receiver. When 0 (Zero) is entered the check-in feature is disabled.
Because host mode is not a polled communication method, the check-in reports allow an SCS-1 or
SCS-1R Receiver to confirm the communication link with the panel. The default Check-in Time is 1
(one) minute.
Fail Time: Entering a Fail Time allows the receiver to miss multiple check-ins before logging that the
panel is missing. For example, if Check-in Time is set to 10 and is Fail Time set to 30, the receiver
will only indicate a Panel Not Responding after 30 minutes. The panel will attempt to send the
message every 10 minutes.
The Fail Time must be equal to or greater than the Check-in Time. For example, if the Check-in Time
is 10 minutes, the Fail Time should be 10 minutes or more. The maximum Fail Time is 240 minutes.
The default Fail Time is 1 (one) minute.
Note: Host communication requires your SCS-1 Receiver to have firmware version 805 or
higher.
Notify Network Trouble: Select Notify Network Trouble to send a notification of network trouble.
When Notify Network Trouble is enabled and the panel detects a failure of the primary host, the
panel will send an S72, Network Trouble message, through the digital dialer (DD) if it is
programmed as the second line. Also, the trouble keypads will sound a continuous tone and
display "NETWORK -TRBL." Press any key to silence the tone.

When using an XR200 (version 110 or above)or XR200-485 (version 204 or above), additional options
are available when Host/Net is selected as the main communication type. Several examples follow to
explain scenarios in which you would use Host Backup and how to program the panel for Host Backup.
When using Host Backup and Host Log Reports, also refer to Network Interface Card Examples.
Exam p le 1 : Tw o 4 6 2 N Card s
This example describes the configuration and programming needed when you are using two 462N
Cards and two iCOM units to enable the Host Backup.
Hardware:
XR200 version 110 or above
Two 462N Network Interface Cards
One 460 Network Interface Adaptor Card
Two iCOM/iCOM-E Internet Alarm Routers
One SCS-1 or SCS-1R Receiver
Installation:
Install the primary 462N Card into slot 1 of the 460 Card. Connect the primary iCOM/iCOM-E to the
462N card in slot 1.
Install the backup 462N Card into slot 2 of the 460 Card. Connect the backup iCOM/iCOM-E to the
462N card in slot 2.
Programming with Remote Link:
Go to Program > Communications > Method Tab. Select Host/Net for Communication type. Open
the Host/Net Tab. Because the second network device is an iCOM/iCOM-E, you do not need to enter a
setup string in the Host Setup String field.
Check the box beside Host Backup Enable. Enter the retry and check-in times.
Explanation:
Messages will be sent through the 462N card in slot 1 to the iCOM/iCOM-E then to the SCS-1 or SCS-1R
Receiver. If the messages cannot be sent that route, the panel will send them using the backup. The
messages will be sent through the 462N Card in slot 2 to the iCOM/iCOM-E to the SCS-1 or SCS-1R
Receiver. If the panel cannot send the messages through the backup 462N Card, the panel will then
use the communication type entered under 2nd Line of Method Tab.
Exam p le 2 : O n e 4 6 2 N Card
This example describes the configuration and programming needed when using one 462N and one
iCOM/iCOM-E to enable the Host Backup.
Hardware:
XR200 version 110
One 462N Network Interface Card
One iCOM/iCOM-E Internet Alarm Router
Two SCS-1 or SCS-1R Receivers
Programming with Remote Link:
Go to Program > Communications > Method Tab. Select Host/Net for Communication type. Open
the Host/Net Tab. Enter AT#UCXXX.XXX.XXX.XXX#PPPPP in the Host Setup String field.
Note: Enter the Remote IP Address for the iCOM/iCOM-E in place of XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX. Enter the port
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
number in place of PPPPP. The default port number is 2001.
Check the box beside Host Backup Enable. Enter the retry and check-in times.
Explanation:
Messages will be sent through the 462N card to the iCOM/iCOM-E, then to the Main SCS-1 or SCS-1R
Receiver. If the messages cannot be sent using that route, the panel will use the Host Setup String to
direct the messages to the backup receiver. If the panel cannot send the messages to the backup
receiver, the panel will then use the communication type entered under 2nd Line of Method Tab.
Exam p le 3 : O th er N etw o rk D evices
It is also possible to use other network devices for the backup. You may use a cellular radio to route
messages to the receiver. If you are using a network device other than an iCOM/iCOM-E, you will
need to obtain the Host (Modem) Setup String for the network device. Generally the Setup String can
be found in the literature provided with the device.
You may use the examples above as a guide when programming you network device. The major
difference between programming an iCOM/iCOM-E for backup and another network device is the Host
Setup String is needed with non-DMP network devices.

position to cancel Call Waiting. For example, program NET with a backup path DD and phone
number *70P555-1212, and you have NET with Call Waiting canceled on the backup path.
Caution: A call waiting cancel programmed on a non-call waiting telephone line would prevent
communication to the central station.
Second Telephone Number: The panel dials the second number when two successive tries using the
first number fail. If the panel cannot reach the receiver after two attempts using the second number,
it returns to the first number and makes two additional attempts. A total of ten dialing attempts are
made using the first and second phone numbers. See Alarm Switch describing an exception for Alarm
messages.
Should all ten attempts fail, the panel continues to attempt sending the message using the next
programmed path. If all programmed communication paths fail, the panel clears the communication
buffer and makes one communication attempt each hour to send a TRANSMIT FAILED (S87) report to
the receiver. Access the User Menu Display Events feature to view the report information not sent to

Zone 2 Options
Activate Zone 2 Bypass: Select to enable the Bypass option. Disabling allows standard zone
operation on Zone 2. Default setting is disabled.
If the door being released by the 734/734N/734N-WiFi module is protected (contact installed), you can
provide a programmable Bypass entry/exit timer by connecting its contact wiring to the
734/734N/734N-WiFi module Zone 2. When the on-board Form C relay activates and the user opens
the door connected to Zone 2, the zone is bypassed for the number of seconds programmed in Zone 2
Bypass Time allowing the user to enter/exit.
If Zone 2 does not restore (door closed) within the programmed bypass time, the 734 piezo pulses
during the last ten seconds. If Zone 2 restores prior to the end of the programmed time, the piezo
silences. If the zone does not restore before the programmed time, the 734/734N/734N-WiFi ends the
bypass and indicates the open or short zone condition to the panel.
Relock on Zone 2 Change: Select to turn the 734 door relay off and relock the door when Zone 2
changes state. Disabling this option leaves the relay on for the door access time when Zone 2 restores.
The default is disabled.
Zone 2 Bypass Time: Enter the number of Bypass seconds to elapse before the Bypass timer
expires. Range is from 20 to 250 seconds. If the door remains open when the timer expires a zone
open/short is sent to the panel for Zone 2. The default is 40 seconds.
Zone 3 Options
Activate Zone 3 Request to Exit: Selecting enables the Zone 3 Request to Exit (REX) option.
Disabling allows standard zone operation on Zone 3. Default setting is disabled.
Optionally connect a PIR (or other motion sensing device) or a mechanical switch to Zone 3 to provide
REX capability to the system. When Zone 3 shorts, the on-board Form C relay activates for the
programmed number of seconds. During this time, the user can open the protected door to start the
programmed Bypass entry/exit timer. After the programmed number of seconds, the relay restores
the door to its locked state.
The 734/734N/734N-WiFi module provides a bypass-only option for REX on Zone 3. When Zone 3 opens
from a normal state, only a bypass occurs: the on-board relay does not activate. This bypass-only
option uses two methods of REX. The first REX device provides the programmed Bypass entry/exit
timer. The second REX device, or manual device such as a door knob, unlocks the door.
An example of the shunt-only configuration is a door to an office that is locked 24 hours a day. Users
pass a REX motion detector positioned by the door to begin the programmed exit timer. Within the
programmed number of seconds the user must then manually activate a second device, such as a REX
device or manual door knob, to unlock the door. If the door is opened after the programmed number
of seconds, the zone goes into alarm.

Zone 3 Request to Exit Strike Time: Enter the number of Request to Exit seconds to elapse. Range
is from 5 to 250 seconds. The default is 5 seconds.
Activate Onboard Speaker: Select to enable the on-board piezo speaker for local annunciation.
Disable to turn the piezo off for all operations. This does not affect remote annunciator open collector
(RA) operation. The default is disabled.
Card Options
Card Options: Select DMP to indicate the reader sends a 26-bit DMP data string. Select CUSTOM if
using a non-DMP credential or user code length of 6 to 12 digits. Select ANY to activate the door relay
for the programmed Zone 3 Rex Strike Time when any Wiegand string is received. Default is DMP.
Note: When set to DMP, the 734/734N/734N-WiFi converts 17 bits of the 26-bit data string
into a 5-digit number.
Wiegand Code Length: When using a custom product, enter the total number of bits to be received
in Wiegand code including parity bits. Select a number between 1-255 to equal the number of bits.
Default is 26 bits.
Typically, an access card contains data bits for a site code, a user code, and start/stop/parity bits.
The starting position location and code length must be determined and programmed into the

The Remote Options window allows you to enter the information needed for connecting to the panel
using Remote Link software.
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
General Options
Remote Key: Enter an alphanumeric code up to 16 characters long that the panel will use as a
password to verify its identity with Remote Link. The panel must give the correct key to Remote Link
before any programming may take place. All panels are shipped from the factory with the remote key
preset as blank.
For security reasons, the Remote Key cannot be viewed from a keypad connected to the panel.
Remote Disarm: Checking the Remote Disarm box allows the panel to be disarmed remotely. Default
is disabled for XR100/XR500 panels. Default is enabled for XR150/XR350/XR550 Series and XT Series
panels.
Dialer Options
Allow Dialer Remote (XR500/XR100 Version 206 only): Enable to allow remote programming over
the phone line. Default is enabled.
Receiver Key Operation:
When enabled, the panel requests the receiver’s key during its first message to the SCS-1R Receiver
and this becomes the alarm receiver key. A receiver key is an alphanumeric code programmed into the
receiver and identifies it to alarm panels. The panel retains this alarm receiver key in memory and
allows remote commands to be accepted over the dialer from the alarm receiver. If an alarm occurs
during a remote connect, the alarm report is immediately sent to the alarm receiver and does not
appear at the remote programming software.
Enabling this option also enables remote commands and programming to be accepted from a secondary
receiver other than the alarm SCS-1R Receiver. The panel requests the service receiver key the first
time it is contacted by another receiver and this becomes the service receiver key. The panel retains
this service receiver key in memory and accepts remote commands from the service receiver. If an
alarm occurs during a remote connect, the panel disconnects from the service receiver and calls the
alarm receiver. Alarm reports are only sent to the alarm receiver.
It is important that the alarm receiver key and the service receiver key programmed into the receiver
at the central station are NOT the same so the panel can determine the difference between receivers.
When disabled, remote commands and programming are not accepted from the SCS-1R Receiver using
digital dialer and all memory of receiver keys is cleared.
Armed Answer Rings: Enter the number of times you wish for the panel to allow the phone line to
ring before it answers while all areas of the system are armed. Any number from 0 to 15 can be

has been sent to the receiver during transmit delay and before the bell cutoff time expires
even if the alarm was silenced, an Abort Signal (S45) message is sent.
If the area where the alarm occurred is disarmed after the alarm message was sent and before the bell
cutoff time expired, a Cancel Signal (S49) message is sent. The Cancel Signal message cannot be
disabled.
Bypass Reports: Checking the Bypass Reports box sends all zone bypasses, resets, and force arm
reports to the receiver. The bypass report includes the zone number, zone name, and the user name
and number of the individual operating the system.
Schedule Change Reports: Checking the Schedule Change Reports box sends all schedule changes to
the receiver. The report includes the day, opening time, and closing time. In addition, the Schedule
Change feature will send the user name and number of the individual making these changes. Schedule
changes made through Remote Link are not sent to the printer or the event buffer.
Code Change Reports: Checking the Code Change Reports box sends all code additions, changes,
and deletions to the receiver. The code change report includes the user name and number added or
deleted and the user name and number of the individual making the change. Code changes made
through Remote Link are not sent to the printer or the event buffer.
Ambush: Checking this box sends an ambush report to the central station whenever user code number
one is entered at a keypad. If you leave this box empty, the panel does not send ambush reports, and
user number one becomes a standard user code instead of an ambush code.
Late To Open (XT30/XT50, XTL, XTLN, and XTLN-WiFi only): Enter 1-240 as the number of minutes
to elapse that the system may remain armed after the opening time of a schedule without sending a
Late To Open message. If the system continues to be armed after the Late to Open minutes expire, a
Late To Open message is sent to the central station. Default is 0, which disables the Late To Open
option.
Early To Close (XT30/XT50, XTL, XTLN, XTLN-WiFi only): Enter 1-240 as the number of minutes

and XR100 Series): When selected, the two-button panic key operation programmed at the keypad
sends Panic, Emergency, or Fire messages to the central station receiver. When not selected the twobutton panic operation is disabled.
Enhanced Zone Test: Select this option to enable Enhanced Zone Test operations. The default is
unchecked.
Enhanced operation allows:
Panic Test and Walk Test functions can be restricted to operate only during an Area 32, Shift 4
schedule if programmed.
A Verify message is sent each time a zone is tested. If a zone is tripped multiple times, a Verify
message is sent for each trip. This allows the Central Station to record the number of devices
per zone.
The Verify message for each zone test is sent at the time the trip occurs instead of at the end
of Walk Test. The System Test Begin and System Test End Central Station messages indicate
the type of zone being tested. The System Test Begin message also includes the user name and
number.
Send 16 Char Names: This option allows the central stations to select being sent either the first 16
characters of the name field or the entire programmed name, up to 32 characters, for user name, user
profile, zone name, area name, output name, and group name.

Panic Supervision (XR150/XR350/XR550 Series and XR500 V210 or higher)
Select to enable a 30 day supervision of the Model 1145-1-B-PSV Wireless Key Fob. Default is disabled.
This option allows an 1145-1-B-PSV key fob that is lost or has a dead battery to be identified at the
Central Station host automation system as a missing transmitter, without the need to apply a
supervision time in zone information programming. SCS-VR Version 1.3.5 or higher is required to
receive 1145-1-B-PSV supervision messages through the XR500 panel.
The 1145-1-B-PSV key fob supervision message is communicated to SCS-VR using all XR500
communication paths where Panic Test is YES within Advanced Communication programming. A
supervision message is automatically sent from the key fob to SVS-VR every four hours, resetting the
30 day countdown timer for that key fob serial number. If the 30 day timer expires for a key fob serial
number, SCS-VR will generate a zone missing message to the host automation system. For the
application where an 1145-1-B-PSV key fob is programmed into several XR500 Version 210 or higher
panels, a supervision message sent through any XR500 into which the key fob is programmed will
satisfy the 30 day timer. The SCS-VR zone missing message to host automation will be for the last
panel account number where the key fob successfully communicated a supervision message to SCS-VR.
The 1145-1-B-PSV key fob MISSING is not displayed or recorded at the XR500 control panel.
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
In addition, this option allows for manual testing of 1145-1-B-PSV key fobs during Walk Test (8144) or
Panic Test from the user menu. A key fob that is successfully activated during these test modes will
cause an increment to the keypad display TRIPS counter and a Verify message is sent to SCS-VR for
that zone. For those 1145-1-B-PSV key fobs that are programmed into the panel but not manually
tested, a Fail message is NOT displayed at the keypad and is not sent to SCS-VR.
Inactive User Code Audit (XR150/XR350/XR550 Series and XR500 V210 or higher)

Several options are available when configuring the panel for Host/Net communication, Host backup
communication, and Host Log Reports. All options require a 462N card and an iCOM/iCOM-E Internet
Alarm Router (an iCOM/iCOM-E is not required for the Host Log Reports when a direct connection is
used).
The chart below outlines the different ways you can configure the panel for these three options. As
shown in the chart below, it is possible to use only one 462N card to meet all three of these needs. The
chart also explains when a Modem Setup String is required.
When using a direct connection to a Advanced Reporting Module computer for the Host Log Reports,
the 462N card can only be used for logging: A separate card will be needed for Host/Net
Communication and Host Backup. Also, a Modem Setup String is not required when using a direct
connection for the logger.
Refer to Communication and Host Log Reports for more information. Also refer to Host Backup
Examples.

The following Zone Types can be programmed. Select the desired type from the drop-down menu. Only
those that apply to the panel and mode are shown in the drop-down menu.
Blank (--): Selecting Blank will program the zone to send all alarm data to the central station, but
will suppress the name of the zone from displaying at the central station.
Night (NT): A controlled instant zone used for perimeter doors and windows and interior devices
such as motion detectors and glass break detectors.
Day (DY): Used for emergency doors or fire doors to sound the keypad buzzer and display the
zone name when the zone is faulted. Day zones will send alarm reports to the receiver during the
system's armed periods.
Exit (EX): Initiates the entry delay timer when its assigned area is armed. It also initiates an exit
delay timer to allow a user to exit an area after the arming process has started.
Panic (PN): Used for connecting to devices that allow a user to signal an emergency alarm. Panic
zones can provide either a silent or audible alarm with or without reporting to a central station
receiver.
Emergency (EM): Used for reporting medical or other non-panic emergencies to the central
station receiver.
Auxiliary 1 (A1) and Auxiliary 2 (A2): These zones are similar to a Night zone and are typically
used to protect restricted areas within a protected premise.
In the XR200 and XR2400F version 112 and higher, and the XR200-485 version 206 and higher, A2
zones can be used with light sensors. The Zone Retard Delay time (in minutes) for A2 and Arming
zones keeps momentary blockages or shadows from tripping the zone.
Supervisory (SV): Used to provide 24-hour zone supervision to devices associated with fire
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
systems. Typical applications are tamper switches on Post Indicator Valves (PIVs), gate valves,
and low and high temperature gauges.
Fire (FI): Used for any type of powered or mechanical fire detection device. Typical applications
are for smoke detectors, sprinkler flowswitches, manual pull stations, and beam detectors.
Retard, cross zoning, and pre-signal options are available for the Fire zone type.
Fire Verify (FV): Used primarily for smoke detector circuits to verify the existence of an actual
fire condition. When a Fire Verify zone initiates an alarm, the panel performs a Sensor Reset. If
any Fire Verify zone initiates an alarm within 120 seconds after the reset, an alarm is indicated. If
an alarm is initiated after another 120 seconds, the cycle is repeated.
Open / Close (OC): This iCOMsl zone type allows the iCOMsl to send a Closing message to the
central station when the zone shorts. When an Open / Close zone returns to a normal state, the
iCOMsl reports an Opening message to the central station. Open /Close zones do not trigger alarm
outputs, nor do they arm or disarm zones: They simply send an Open / Close message to the
central station receiver.
Enable (EN): Enable zones allow the iCOMsl to activate specified zones as desired. When an
Enable zone is programmed, the Enable zone must be tripped (open or shorted) before zones with
a higher number can transmit a message. Enable zones only activate or deactivate higher zones:
They do not report messages to the central station or trigger alarm output.
Burglary / Fire combination (BF): Burglary / Fire zones allow the iCOMsl to communicate a
message as a burglary or a fire zone. In a Burglary / Fire zone, any steady 12 to 24 VDC input or a
short longer than three seconds is reported as a burglary alarm. If the input voltage oscillates to
create a Fire Pulse input, the iCOMsl reports a fire alarm to the central station. The iCOMsl
reports burglary alarms on zone 6 and fire alarm messages as zone 7.
Note: Burglary / Fire zones must be connected to zone 6 of the iCOMsl. Burglary / Fire zones
must be attached to the bell output of a panel.
Arming Zone (AR): This zone allows you to connect a keyswitch on a zone and use it to arm and
disarm one or more areas within a partition. In the XR200 and XR2400F version 112 and higher, and
the XR200-485 version 206 and higher, when connecting to a light sensor, using Maintain with Retard
Delay will allow arming at dusk and disarming at dawn, ignoring momentary changes in light intensity,
such as shadows or headlights.
AR Style: When programming an Arming zone, some panels allow you to select an Arming Style. This
allows for different actions of the arming zones.
The options in the AR Style menu are:
Toggle: When the zone changes from normal to shorted, the programmed areas toggle between
the armed or disarmed condition. When restored to normal, no action occurs. When the zone is
opened from a normal (disarmed) state, a trouble is reported. When opened from a shorted
(armed) state, an alarm is reported and the zone is disabled until you disarm the area(s) from
either a keypad or Remote Link computer.
Arm: When the zone is shorted, the programmed areas are armed. When restored to normal, no
action occurs. When the zone is opened from a normal (disarmed) state, a trouble is reported.
When opened from a shorted (armed) state, an alarm is reported.
Disarm: When programmed as an Area system, a short will disarm the programmed areas. When
programmed as an All/Perimeter or Home/Away system, a short will disarm all areas. When
restored to normal, no action occurs. When the zone is opened from a normal (disarmed) state, a
trouble is reported.
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
Step: When programmed as an Area system, a short will arm the areas and beep the keypads
once. When programmed as All/Perimeter or Home/Away, on the first short Home (Perimeter) will
arm and beep the keypads once. On the second short, Sleep will arm for Home/Away systems and
beep the keypads twice. When programmed as All/Perimeter, the interior will arm and beep the
keypads twice. On the third short, Away will arm and beep the keypads three times. A normal
condition will cause no action. An open condition will disarm the programmed areas and beep the
keypads for one second.
Note: This arming style is designed for wireless arming pendants. When using an arming/
disarming keyswitch locate the keyswitch within the protected area.
Maintain: When the zone is shorted, the programmed areas are armed. When restored to normal,
the programmed areas are disarmed and any alarm bells are silenced. When the zone is opened
from a normal (disarmed) state, a trouble is reported. If opened from a shorted (armed) state, an
alarm is reported and the zone is disabled until you disarm the area(s) from either a keypad or
Remote Link computer.

XR500 Profile Screen
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
XR150/XR350/XR550 Profile Screen
The Profiles window allows you to add, delete, or change user profiles. A profile defines the authority
of each user code in the system. Up to 4 profiles can be assigned to each user code. See User Codes.
Use the Profile Record to assist you when programming Profiles.
Profile: Enter a number to assign to the profile. Each profile may be assigned a number from 1 to 99.
Note: On XR100/XR500 and XR150/XR350/XR550 Series panels, Profiles cannot be changed at
the keypad for All/Perimeter or Home/Sleep/Away operation. Use the default Profiles 1 to 10.
Name: Enter a name to assign to the profile you are programming. Each profile may be assigned a 16character name.
Arm / Disarm Areas: Enter the number for the areas that you want to authorize this profile to arm
and disarm. Beginning with XR150/XR350/XR550 Series, XR500/XR100 Series, and XR2500F version
110, you can specify separate arm and disarm authority for a profile.
Each profile may be assigned specific areas of the burglary part of the system for arming and
disarming. When profiles 1 to 98 are created, no areas are assigned by default. By default, profile 99
is assigned authority to all areas.
Access Areas: Enter the number for the areas you want to authorize access for this profile.
Areas 1 to 32 for XR550 Series, XR500 Series or XR2500F
Areas 1 to 16 for XR350 Series
Areas 1 to 8 for XR150 or XR100 Series
Each profile may be assigned door access to specific areas. When profiles 1 to 98 are created, no
areas are assigned by default. By default, profile 99 is assigned authority to all areas.
Note: On XR500 or XR100 Series panels set to All/Perimeter or Home/Sleep/Away operation,
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
Access Areas should be left at factory default settings.
Output Group: You may assign each profile to an output group number from 1 to 20. See Output
Groups for more information.
Profile Options:
Each user profile may be assigned any of the profile options. Select each box for the options you wish
to assign to the profile.
Note: Always be sure that at least one administrator code in your system has a profile with all
authorities and all areas.
Shifts (1 - 4) (XR100/XR500 Series and XR2500F panels): Check the box for each shift where
you want to authorize access for this profile.
Schedules (XR150/XR350/XR550 Series panels): Enter each Schedule number you want to
authorize access for this profile, up to 8 Schedules per profile. Profiles with no assigned Schedules will
have 24-hour access. See Schedules.
Easy Arm/Disarm: When entering a code that has Easy Arm/Disarm enabled, the system will
automatically arm or disarm all areas that are assigned to the code. The ALL NO YES? Option does not
display when this option is enabled in the user profile.
Anytime: Check this box if you would like this profile to operate without regard to schedules.
Note: You may select multiple shifts for each profile. For example, a profile may be allowed
Shift 1 and Shift 2. You may not select individual shifts if you select Anytime.
Re Arm Delay: Allows the entry of 0 to 720 minutes to be used to delay automatic rearming when the
user disarms an area outside of schedule. If zero is selected, the rearming occurs based on Late/Arm
Delay programming in the panel Area Information.
Re Arm Delay is also used to delay a late to close message to the central station when the panel does
not use automatic arming.
If the user has Extend Schedule authority, 2HR 4HR 6HR 8HR displays at disarming. If the user does
not make a choice, the Re Arm Delay is used to extend the schedule.
Applications example: An exit door near the trash is scheduled to be armed at all times. When the
custodian needs to remove trash, program 10 minutes for the activity. Or, an overhead door only
requires access when a delivery is made. Program up to 250 minutes to allow the loading dock
supervisor to load or unload a semi-truck.
Use Secondary Language: Allows the programmed secondary user language to display when the Easy
Arm/Disarm option is enabled and the user presents their credentials or enters their user code at the
Status List.
Card Plus PIN (XR150/XR350/XR550): When checked, all existing user codes assigned to that
profile will need a PIN number assigned. Program the PIN number in Program>User Codes. For door
access, arm/disarm, or User Menu access, the first code must be entered from a proximity patch,
credential card, fob, etc., on a reader from a DMP Keypad (Models 7063, 7163, 7073, 7173, 7872,
7873) or an external reader. The second code is a PIN number keyed in at the keypad or can be a
second credential.
For users with multiple profiles, when Card Plus PIN is checked, a PIN is only required for the Arm/
Disarm or Access areas assigned to that profile.
Note: The Card Plus PIN option is only available on Area Systems.

Message: Lists all of the pertinent information for the incoming signal. The Message field can hold
up to three lines of text. The information listed in the Message field is as follows:
Zone Number: The zone number that is in alarm is listed here. If the signal does not include a zone
number, a Report Identifier is displayed here. Common Report Identifiers are warning, alert, and
abort.
Zone Name: The zone name that is in alarm is displayed here. The zone name can be up to 16
characters long.
Report Type: The type of signal displays, such as Alarm, Panic, or Trouble.

No Account Record: If a signal has been received from an account that is not in the database, "No
account record" will display in the second line of the Message field.
Restoral Status: If a signal has been received, but a restoral signal was not received "Not Restored"
will display in the second line of the Message field. When the restoral signal is received, "Not
Restored" will no longer display in this field.
Rpt. (Repeat Count): Lists the number of times repeat signals have been received. If a signal has
been received one time, a 0 (zero) displays here. If the exact same message is received from the
same account, the Repeat Count increases to 1 (one). The message returns to the violet color,
indicating its unacknowledged state. The alert tone also sounds until the message is acknowledged.
The repeat count increases by increments of one each time repeat signals are received.
Time (Time Received): Lists the time and date the alarm signal was received. In the case that a
signal has been received multiple times, also called a Repeat Count message, the Time column
displays the date and time of the first signal received. To view the other dates and times a Repeat
Count signal occurred, print a report by pressing the Print button.
Note: Remote Link receives the time and date from the Windows Operating System. If a site
is in a different time zone than the central station receiver, alarm signal's date and time
would be based upon the central station's date and time.
Ackn. (Acknowledge Time): Displays the time and date the signal was acknowledged by the
operator. In the case that a signal has been received multiple times, also called a Repeat Count
message, the Ackn. column displays the date and time of the last time the signal was acknowledged.
System > Alarm List
When alarm and trouble messages are received, Remote Link displays them in the Alarm List. The last
signal to be received is displayed on the top row of the Alarm List. Incoming signals are displayed on a
violet background until you acknowledge them.
Messages are sorted by priority. First, they are sorted by acknowledged and unacknowledged, with the
unacknowledged signals above the acknowledged signals. Within these two categories, signals are
then sorted by event type and time received. Messages with the highest priority and those that were
received the most recently display at the top of the Alarm List.
Example: If a fire alarm was received at the same time a zone trouble was received, the fire alarm
would appear above the zone trouble signal. This is to ensure that proper and timely action is taken on
each incoming signal.
If more than one unacknowledged message is displayed in the Alarm List, the messages are prioritized
in the following order:
1. Fire Alarms
2. Panic Alarms
3. Burglary Alarms
4. All Supervisory
5. All Emergency
6. Auxiliary 1 and Auxiliary 2 Alarms
7. Fire Troubles
8. Other Fire (CleanMe™, zone fault, etc.)

monitoring network connection.
The Command Center enables you to visually monitor alarm activity on subscriber accounts using an
SCS-1 or SCS-1R Receiver, SCS-105 Receiver, or an Ethernet host monitoring network connection.
The Command Center is composed of two different windows: The Alarm Grid window is a segmented
grid and the Alarm List contains alarm information for each account. The Alarm Grid window organizes
your subscriber accounts by account number in the grid. Each account is assigned one square, or
segment, in the Alarm Grid window. Each account also has its own Alarm List: When you click on the
account's segment in the Alarm Grid window, the Alarm List opens displaying the account's alarm and
account information.
Once in the Alarm List window, acknowledge alarm signals by pressing the F6 key or by clicking on the
Ack button. You may view account information while in the Alarm List window and open hyperlink files.
If more than one unacknowledged alarm signal is pending, the warning tone will continue until you
acknowledge all alarm signals. In addition, the Command Center displays the message
"Unacknowledged Alarms: X" in red text at the bottom of the screen. "X" represents the number of
unacknowledged alarms.
You can open the Alarm Grid window by selecting System > Alarm Grid from the menu. Pressing F3 also
opens the Alarm Grid window.

The Alarm Grid window enables you to view all account alarm activity by simply watching a grid. Each
segment of the grid represents one subscriber account. When the mouse moves over each segment of
the grid, the account information is displayed in a small pop-up window. Click once to open the
account's Alarm List that displays information about the account and the alarm signals.
Arranging the Alarm Grid Window
The accounts in the Alarm Grid window are arranged in numerical order, according to receiver number
and account number. The segments are filled from left to right and top to bottom: The lowest account
number will be listed before higher account numbers. For example, account 1-12 appears before
account 1-22.
Also, all accounts reporting to receiver 1 are listed before those reporting to receiver 2 and above. For
example, account 1-12345 appears before account 2-12345.
Use the scrollbar on the right of the grid to move up and down in the grid. When an alarm occurs on an
account that is not in the screen, the Command Center automatically scrolls to the necessary segment.
Prioritizing Alarm Signals in the Alarm Grid Window
Messages are sorted by priority according to event type and time received. The Command Center will
display the segments with messages that have the highest priority and those that are received more
recently before scrolling to others.
If two alarms occur at the same time but cannot fit on the screen together, the Command Center first
displays the account segment with the higher priority alarm. After the highest priority alarm is
acknowledged, the Command Center then brings the next highest priority account segment to view.
For example, if a fire alarm is received at the same time a zone trouble is received, the Command
Center scrolls to the segment with the fire alarm and then the segment with the zone trouble. This is
to ensure that proper and timely action is taken on each incoming signal. Messages are prioritized in
the following order:
1. Fire Alarms
2. Panic Alarms
3. Burglary Alarms
4. All Supervisory
5. All Emergency
6. Auxiliary 1 and Auxiliary 2 Alarms
7. Fire Troubles
8. Other Fire (CleanMe™, zone fault, etc.)
9. Other Burglary (zone trouble, zone fault, etc.)
10. All Other Messages (AC fail, low battery, etc.)

As you move the mouse over each segment of the grid, pop-up windows appear containing general
information about each account. The pop-up window includes the account number, name, and location.
This information is that entered in the Panel Information window.
The pop-up windows allow you to easily identify each account without the need to open the Alarm List
to determine account information. Once the mouse is removed from the segment, the pop-up window
disappears.

windows open in Remote Link.
The account's segment turns a designated color to indicate that an alarm has been received for
this account.
The Command Center automatically scrolls so the proper account segment is visible when an
alarm is received.
Acknowledging Alarm Signals.
After Command Center has received the alarm signal, click once in the account's segment where
the alarm has occurred. This opens that account's Alarm List. From the Alarm List, you can view

The System segment is located in the top left-hand corner of the grid. The System segment contains
information about system messages and signals received form accounts with no information on file.
When a system message is received that is not associated with an account, such as receiver
messages, the System segment will turn light yellow. The name field will display the receiver number
followed by the account number of zero (0). For example, the name field will display 1-0.
When a system message is received for an account that is not in the Command Center's database, the
System segment will change to the color of the type of signal received. The Alarm List will display "No
account record" on the second line of the message.
When a system message is received that is associated with an account, the account's segment will
change to light yellow. You must then process the system message as any other alarm message.

The DMP SQL Module allows larger corporate users to take advantage of existing Microsoft SQL Server
installations they already have in place. This module allows an administrator to configure an ODBC
connection to an existing Microsoft SQL Server installation, on which it will then create the database
structure necessary to store all of the DMP panel programming information.
The module also allows the administrator to export all existing DMP panel programming information
from the standard DBISAM database, and then import that information into a newly created Microsoft
SQL database. The SQL Module is an add-on module to your Remote Link and System Link software
programs.
Remote Link is designed to use Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2. All editions of Microsoft SQL Server
2008 R2 are supported, including the SQL Server 2008 Express edition.
Both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of SQL Server are supported by Link. Install the version that
corresponds to the operating system version of the machine which the Server will operate. For
example, if running the server on Windows 7 64-bit, install the 64-bit version of SQL Server.
Note: Remote Link and SQL Server do not have to be installed on the same machine. Using
Remote Link on a 32-bit machine with SQL Server on a 64-bit machine (or vice-versus) is
supported.
Installing SQL Server 2008 R2 Express also installs the database and management tools including SQL
Server Management Studio (SSMS). This tool can be used to connect and examine the database used
by Remote Link.
If Remote Link is configured to use SQL Server via a DSN and is not able to log in at startup, a login
screen will appear:
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
The user should contact the database administrator to find the correct options. If SQL Server
Authentication is chosen, a User Name and Password must be provided. This is the SQL username and
password, not the Remote Link username and password.
The login screen will appear the first time the user runs Remote Link with SQL Server or anytime the
SQL username or password is changed by the administrator. After a successful login the user will not
be prompted again unless something changes on the database side.
For users of Remote Link in mission-critical applications (such as central station monitoring), it is
recommended that an experienced SQL Server administrator performs setup and administrative
duties. This includes initial setup, firewall configuration, database replication, backup, repair, and
other site specific configuration.
When using Link with SQL Server, all backup and repair operations must be performed by the database
administrator, using SQL Server management tools. Remote Link does not perform these operations.
When using Link with the built-in database engine, or with Link Server, Link can still be used to
perform database backup and repair operations.
The database administrator should create an empty database.
Any user created to be used for SQL Server authentication must have permission to read, write,
modify and delete all tables.
An ODBC Data Source will need to be created to allow Link to connect to the new Link database. For
more information, go to Setting up ODBC Data Source.
To use Remote Link with Microsoft SQL Server, a ODBC Data Source must be set up on the user's
machine.
Add a System DSN for SQL Server.
1. For Windows XP: Start > Settings->Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Data Sources
(ODBC) to open ODBC Data Source Administrator.
For Windows 7: Start >Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Data Sources (ODBC) to open
ODBC Data Source Administrator.
2. Select System DSN tab.
3. Press Add...
4. In Create New Data Source window, select 'SQL Server', then press Finish
5. In Create a New Data Source to SQL Server window
a. Give the data source a Name and Description. Make note of the name you assign.
b. Select the server from the dropdown.
IMPORTANT: If you are running SQL Server Express, add \SQLEXPRESS to the end of the
server name. It may also be necessary to add the port 1433 at the end of the name. For
example 'MY_SERVER_NAME_OR_IP_ADDRESS\SQLEXPRESS,1433'
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
c. Press Next
d. Consult with your database administrator to determine whether to use Windows NT
Authentication or SQL Server Authentication. If using SQL Server Authentication, use
the Login ID and Password priovided by the administrator.
e. Press Next
f. Change default database to the Link database.
g. Press Next
h. Press Finish
6. Test Data Source
NOTE: If setting up the DSN on a Windows 7 64 bit system you need to use a 32 bit version of the
ODBC configuration utility. The executable is odbcad32.exe and can be found within C:\Windows
The SQL Server Module allows the administrator to export all existing DMP panel programming
information from the standard DBISAM database, and then import that information into a newly
created Microsoft SQL database.
1. Backup database. While using the SQL Server Module, Remote Link does not automatically
backup the database.
2. Make sure Remote Link has been upgraded to 1.60 including updating the database.
3. Export database accounts. Go to File> Import and Export> Export Accounts. For more
information on Exporting Accounts, see Export Account Information.
4. Go to System> Configure> Remote Link> Database Tab. Within the Database Tab, type in
the name you gave the ODBC data source you created in the previous section "Setting up ODBC
Data Source". The location must start with "dsn:"
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
5. Click OK to exit configuration.
6. Restart Remote Link.
7. When Remote Link restarts, select Yes to initialize database.
8. Import database accounts. Go to File> Import and export> Import Accounts. For more
information on Importing Accounts, see Import Account Information.

The Account Groups module provides the ability to update, change, or delete profiles, schedules,
output schedules, holidays and user codes on multiple panels at the same time. Using the Account
Groups module, you can group panels together under one name and associate the groups by location,
business, or other logical grouping. Once grouped, you can update all the panels within the group in
one operation. There is no limit on the number of groups you can create.
Basic Requirements
Complete Account Group module updates using the following guidelines:
The same user number has the same profile number in all accounts.
The panels need to have account numbers established before they are listed for selection.
Remote Link is not available to perform other operations while batch updates are in

before returning to the Operator Sign On screen.
The SCS-105 receiver is a single line receiver that is essentially an external modem that allows you to
communicate with a single alarm panel over a standard telephone line.
Complete instructions for the SCS-105 Receiver are packaged with the SCS-105 Receiver. The SCS-105
Installation/User Guide (LT-0153) and the SCS-1 Product Specification (LT-0124) can be found in the
document library at the DMP IQ Web site at http://buy.dmp.com.
To be compatible with Remote Link, the SCS-105 Receiver must contain firmware revision level 204 or
higher. If your SCS-105 firmware level is less than 204, contact DMP Customer Service for an SCS-105
Firmware Update kit.
If you are not sure which revision level your SCS-105 is currently running, follow the steps below:
1. Remove power from the SCS-105 and disconnect all cables.
2. Open the front of the SCS-105 by removing the two machine screws.
3. Gently tilt the SCS-105 face down and hold the processor board as it slides out.
The SCS-105 firmware chip is located about two inches above the internal speaker. The firmware
revision number is on a label on top of the chip.
Q. How do I make the SCS-105 receiver dial DTMF?
A. In the System > Configure > Remote Link window, click on the Receiver tab. In the section titled
Communications Options, check the box labeled Tone Dial. This will cause the SCS-105 receiver to
tone dial. The SCS-1 or SCS-1R receiver will always pulse dial.
Q. Can I set a schedule that disarms in the evening and arms in the morning?
A. Yes. For the panel to recognize a schedule as being valid, it must see an opening time before the
closing time. This still applies to set a schedule that runs through midnight. Program the schedule as
follows: In the Monday Opening field enter 8:00 PM. In the Monday Closing field enter 7:00 AM TUE.
With this schedule, the system will disarm at 8:00 PM Monday and arm Tuesday at 7:00 AM. Repeat
for each day of the week that you wish to schedule. This keeps the opening time before the closing
time.
Q. Is Remote Link compatible with Windows 3.1?
A. No. Remote Link is designed to work with Windows 95, 98, 2000, NT, and XP.
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
Q. I just installed Remote Link. Now what do I do?
A. You first need to log in and configure the Remote Link program. See Remote Link Configuration for
more information.
Q. What do I need to do for normal maintenance on my Remote Link computer?
A. As with any computer running Windows and Windows applications, you should have a program of
regular maintenance to keep the system optimized. The Microsoft® Windows™ User's Guide has a
chapter titled Maintaining Windows with Setup that you should refer to for information. Set a regular
schedule to backup your database files. There are also utilities available on your system such as
SCANDISK and DEFRAG that should be used regularly.
Q. What happens to my user codes when I change the account number on a panel or when I change the
number of partitions in a 1912XR, XR200, XR200-485 or a XR2400F panel?
A. When you change the number of partitions in a panel, all of the user codes are deleted and the
factory default code 99 is loaded for each partition. This is to prevent user codes from being assigned
to the wrong partition. It is recommended that you print a copy of your user codes before changing
partition numbers.
Q. What is the Receiver Timeout Message? Why do I get an hourglass mouse cursor before I get this
message?
A. The receiver and computer are not communicating correctly. Check the connections between your
computer and receiver.
Q. In some places I see my account number listed as 12345, while in other places it is listed as 112345. Which is it?
A. The account number is the number that displays after the dash, while the first digit is the receiver
number. In this example, 1-12345 is the receiver number (1) followed by the 5 digit account number
(12345). When programming the panel, enter 12345 for the account number.
Q. What is the default Log on user name and password?
A. New
Q. Where do I enter Closing Code, Area Schedules, and other Area Information options?
A. From the Area Information window, click on the Partition Info button on the lower left side of the
screen. This is where you program items that affect the entire partition.

Q. I've logged on to Remote Link but several of the options are not available.
A. Go to System > Operator Configuration to confirm the options for the operator. Make sure that the
boxes are checked for each option you want assigned to the operator. Also keep in mind that not all
options are available for each panel type.
Q. A new panel will not stay on-line with Remote Link. The panel will seize the line then immediately
hang up.
A. The account number in the file you have open while trying to connect with a panel must match the
account number programmed into the panel. If you are trying to connect to a panel with the default
account number (12345) and send an existing file, this can be done. However you must first connect
to the panel with the panel's account number. Once connected, this account number can be changed to
a unique account number. See the note in the Connect section of this help file for detailed
instructions.
4-2 Communication definition - A hexadecimal communication format that allows the DMP panel to
send alarm and system reports to non-DMP receivers. The 4-2 format consists of a 4-digit account
number, a 2-digit event code, and a 1-digit checksum.
"A" Zone (Style D) - a circuit extending from and returning to a fire alarm control device or
transmitter to which normally open contacts of alarm actuating devices are connected for the
initiation of alarm signals. Routinely referred to as four-wire zone supervised. See "B' zone.

sequence of bits used to identify devices on a network. Each network device must have a unique
address. Addresses fall in two categories: physical hardware addresses and logical protocol addresses.
addressable device - an alarm system component with discrete identification that can have its status
individually identified or that is used to individually control other functions.
adverse condition - any condition occurring in a communications or transmission channel that
interferes with the proper transmission or interpretation, or both, of status change signals at the
supervising station.
alarm - a condition in which one or more armed zones in the system have been faulted. Almost all
alarms sound some form of audible device locally except in the cases of silent panic or ambush alarms.
alarm bell - a bell or siren installed on the protected premises that gives indication of an alarm
condition to persons inside or nearby.
alarm control - a device that permits an alarm system to be turned on and off and provides electrical

alarm signal - an alarm signal lets people know the alarm system has activated. The alarm signal may
be a bell, siren, or visual device (local alarm), or it may be a message transmitted to a central station
alarm company on leased telephone lines or the switched network. Every alarm system must have an
alarm signal.
alarm silence - a keypad menu function that allows authorized users to silence alarm bells or sirens
during an alarm condition on the system. Users can also enter their user code and press the command
key directly from the status list. This is an exclusive function of DMP panels that allows silence of
alarm bells without disarming the system.
alarm system - a combination of compatible initiating devices, control panels, and notification
appliances designed and installed to produce an alarm signal in the event of emergencies.
all/perimeter - a panel mode of operation that provides for the system to be configured into just two
areas: a perimeter and an interior. Exterior doors and windows are assigned to the perimeter while
inside PIRs, doors, or pressure mats are assigned to the interior area.
alphanumeric - term used to describe letters and numbers together.
ambush - a silent, invisible alarm signal sent to the central station that indicates a user is being
forced to disarm the system. The ambush code is sent when ambushed is programmed as YES in the
panel and a code for user number one is entered at the keypad. DMP panels use a unique ambush code
number to prevent false alarms.
ambush code - a special code entered into a digital keypad to indicate a duress condition that directly
threatens the user. This code does not activate signaling devices at the premises.
ambush output - a panel output that is programmed to activate any time an ambush code is entered
at a keypad. The output is turned off using the sensor reset option from the user menu. This output
is used to lock down areas or activate strobes, etc.
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) - a federation of trade, technical, professional
organizations, government agencies, and consumer groups that coordinates standards development,
publishes standards, and operates a voluntary certification program.
American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) - a commonly used coding scheme that
uses eight bits of data to encode alphanumeric and special control characters. Common to most
computer platforms.
analog - a method of data transmission where the data is continually modulated to represent
transmitted information.
annunciator - a keypad or other lighted or audible display at the protected premise that indicates the
condition of the system, zones, and armed status.
anti-passback - a programming option that requires a user to properly exit (egress) an area they have
previously accessed. If they fail to exit through the proper card reader location they will not be
granted access on their next attempt. Also, see egress.
any bypass - a panel programming feature that allows low level users to bypass zones during the
arming sequence without having to enter a higher level user code.
area - part of a protected premise that is programmed to operate separately from the other areas.
Areas can have their own keypads, zones, account numbers, and arming and disarming schedules.
area arming - a panel mode of operation that provides for one or more areas to be individually armed
and disarmed.
area schedules - a programming option that allows you to automatically arm and disarm areas within
a system. This is done by entering schedules in the panel programming.
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
arm - to turn on the burglary or other non-24-hour hour protection in a protected premises.
armed - a condition in which a zone or system can be placed. When a zone is armed, a change in its
normal state causes the panel to activate an alarm. Fire, panic, and other 24-hour zones are
considered always armed.
armed output - a programming option that allows an output to be controlled by the arming cycle of an
area.
armed rings - the number of rings the panel counts before answering the phone line when all areas of
the system are armed.
arming zone - a DMP zone type that allows you to use keyswitches to arm and disarm areas within a
system. This is done by entering the area number(s) to be controlled into the area section of the
arming zone programming.
asynchronous communication - a technique of data transmission that sends one character at a time
without waiting for an acknowledgement.
authority level - a level of access to the system and its functions that is assigned to each user code.
Each area must have at least one user with a master authority in order to be able to add, change, or
delete other users.
auto arm - to automatically turn on the burglary protection in one or more areas through the use of
schedules. These schedules allow you to set the time of day for the arming to occur. If using the
automatic arming feature along with the closing check (see closing check), the arming does not take
place until the expiration of a ten-minute closing check delay. If the area has been disarmed outside
of any schedule, the closing check sequence occurs one hour after the area is disarmed. At arming,
bad zones are handled according to the bypass option selected. If a closing report is sent to the central
station, the user number is indicated as SCH (for schedule) on the receiver.
auto disarm - to automatically turn off the burglary protection in one or more areas through the use
of schedules. These schedules allow you to set the time of day for the disarming to occur. If an
opening report is sent to the central station at disarming, the user number is indicated as SCH (for
schedule) on the receiver.
automatic recall test - a signal generated by the panel that is sent to the central station. This signal
indicates that the panel communicator is working properly and is able to send signals to the central
station receiver.
automation software - central station software that receives signals from an alarm receiver and
displays alarms on a display screen to allow dispatching of the proper authorities.
away - a panel arming mode in which all areas of the system are armed. This option is for when the
user is leaving the premises and no person is left inside.
"B" Zone (Style A) - a circuit extending from a fire alarm control device or transmitter to which
initiating or notification devices are connected. The zone is terminated with an end-of-line
supervision resistor.
backup - as used in programming for receiver one and receiver two reporting, choosing YES for this
option means that the receiver will be contacted by the panel in the event the primary receiver cannot
be reached.
Bank, Safe, and Vault - an area operating characteristic that prevents disarming, schedule changes,
and time/date changes during armed periods. This feature is typically used on bank vaults, but can
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
also be used for restricted access storage, gun rooms, or other areas for which the user wants an
extra level of protection.
bell - alarm bell - a bell or siren installed on the protected premises that gives indication of an alarm
condition to persons inside or nearby.
bell action - a zone programming option that defines the action of the alarm bell output for alarms on
that zone.
none: no bell action for an alarm condition on the zone.
pulsed: a repeating one second on, one second off bell output for the duration of the programmed bell
cutoff time.
steady: a steady, uninterrupted bell output for the duration of the programmed bell cutoff time.
temporal code: a repeating 0.5 second on, 0.5 second off (three times) followed by 2.5 seconds off.
This lasts for the duration of the programmed bell cutoff time.
bell cutoff - the length of time the alarm bell or siren is programmed to ring after an alarm. DMP
panels allow a programmable length of time in one-minute increments. Entering a zero allows the bell
output to run continuously. AHJ requirements for bell cutoff can vary but it is typically between five
and 15 minutes.
bits per second (bps) - a unit that measures the message carrying ability of a medium. A kilobit per
second (Kbps) is one thousand bits per second. A megabit per second (Mbps) is one million bits per
second.

burglary output - a panel output that is activated any time a specified burglary type zone is placed
into alarm. The output is turned off when the user disarms the area in which the alarm occurred.
bypass - a manual shunting of a zone by a user that allows the panel to ignore any activity on the zone
until it is reset back into the system. A user can bypass a zone at any time from the user menu or
while arming the system if they cannot restore it to normal. Used when a user wants to keep a door or
window open or when a device is in need of service. See also swinger bypass.
bypass reports - a programming option that allows zone bypasses, resets, and force arm reports to be
sent to a receiver.
cancel - see abort and abort report.
cellular - a communication programming option that enables cellular transmissions with Cell-Miser™
call restrictions.
Cell-Miser™ - when Cell-Miser™ is selected in programming the panel restricts its cellular calls to zone
alarms, ambush, line one trouble, abort, and recall test reports. Additionally, delayed event reports
can also be sent but only if the original cellular call was made to transmit one of the previously listed
reports. Line 1 trouble is sent only once during each armed period.
central station - a supervising station that is listed for central station service.
certification - a systematic program using randomly selected follow-up inspections of the certificated
systems installed under the program, which allows the listing organization to verify that a fire alarm
system complies with all requirements of this code. A system installed under such a program is
identified by the issuance of a certificated system.

client/server - the interaction of software processes that function in a cooperative manner. Clients
make requests of servers.
closed circuit system - a switch or other detector used in closed circuit alarm systems that is closed
prior to alarm and opens on alarm.
closing check - this programming option enables the panel to verify that all areas in a partition that
has been armed after primary/secondary or permanent/temporary schedules have expired. If the
closing check finds any areas disarmed past the scheduled time, the keypad selected to display system
trouble status emits a steady beep and displays CLOSING TIME! If you also select area schedules, the
appropriate area name is displayed followed by - LATE. The keypad's steady beep is silenced by
pressing any top row select key. If the system is not armed or a temporary schedule not extended
within ten minutes, a no closing report is sent to the central station receiver. If the area has been
disarmed outside of any schedule, the closing check sequence occurs one hour after the area was
disarmed.
closing code - this programming option provides for a user code to be required for system arming.
closing wait - a programming option that provides for the panel to display a message on the keypad
and delay arming the system until the closing report has been acknowledged by the central station
receiver.
code change reports - a programming option that allows code additions, changes, and deletions to be
sent to a receiver.
coded - an audible or visible signal conveying several discrete bits or units of information.
Notification signal examples are numbered strokes of an impact-type appliance and numbered flashes
of a visible appliance.
collision - the condition that results when two network devices transmit at nearly the same time. The
transmissions collide, making the data unusable.
command key - the command key is used to step ahead through options in the panel's programmer or
user menu. Pressing the command key allows you to go forward and through each step of a menu
section. As you go through the options, the keypad displays any current selections already stored in
the panel's memory. The command key is also used to enter information into the panel's memory,
such as phone numbers or zone names, by pressing the key after entering the information and it is
being displayed correctly on the keypad.
Command Processor™ - the trademarked name for DMP control/communicator alarm panels.
common area - a unique DMP programming option that allows specification of one or more areas
within a partition to arm automatically when all other areas are armed. Alternately, common areas
disarm when any area in the same partition is disarmed. Common areas are ideal for lobbies, storage
rooms, or other areas shared by multiple users.

cross zone time - the amount of time programmed into the panel during which armed cross zoned
zones must trip before an alarm report is sent to the central station. Cross zone time can be from
four to 250 seconds.
cross zoning - a zone characteristic that requires the zone to trip twice, or a second cross zoned zone
to trip, within a programmed amount of time before an alarm report is sent to the central station. An
example of cross zoning would be two interior PIRs. One PIR might trip due to an environmental
occurrence but an alarm report would not be sent until the other PIR is also tripped or the first PIR
restores and then trips again. If neither zone trips before the programmed cross zone time expires,
only a zone fault report is sent to the central station. Cross zoning reduces false alarms by requiring
two zone trips to send an alarm report. See also the DMP cross zoning application note LT-2000.
cutoff output - a panel programming option that allows you to specify individual on-board outputs to
turn off after a programmed time period. See cutoff time.
cutoff time - a programming option used with cutoff outputs that specifies how long a selected output
remains activated. The programmable range is in one-minute increments.
data - information represented in digital form, including voice, text, facsimile, and video.
day zone - a zone type that buzzes the keypad and provides a trouble report to the central station if
the zone is tripped while its area is disarmed and an alarm if the zone is tripped while the area is
armed. This is typically used with window foil, emergency zones, or other types of protection that
needs constant supervision but not always an alarm. The keypad buzzer initiated by a day zone can be
silenced by pressing any top row select key.
DD (digital dialer) - a programming option for the panel to use standard digital dialer communication
to a DMP receiver. DD is a DMP proprietary format using SDLC protocol.
DDMX - a communication option in the 1912XR Command Processor panel that can allow the panel to
communicate to the central station as a digital dialer during disarmed periods but then switch
automatically to multiplex communication when the last area in the system is armed.
defer test time - a programming option that allows the panel to defer sending in a scheduled test
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
report if it has already communicated with the central station receiver within the time period entered
into the test frequency option. See test frequency.
delay reports - a programming option under Events Manager that provides for all non-alarm reports to
be held in the panel's memory until the event buffer is nearly full or until the panel's next
communication with the receiver.
delay zone - see exit zone.
detector - a unit that is installed as a satellite component in a security system designed to detect an
intruder within a protected area.
device - any keypad, expander, or point addressable module that requires an address on the keypad or
LX-Bus.
detector - a device used for detecting an intruder.
device fail output - this programming option provides for the specified output to turn on any time an
addressed device fails to respond to polling from the panel. The output is turned off when all
programmed devices respond to polling.
digital communicator - a means of transmitting alarm signals and other information to a central
station using the customer's existing phone line. To transmit an alarm, the communicator seizes the
customer's phone line and electronically dials the central station receiver. When the receiver answers,
the communicator sends a message in the form of a sequence of tones. A mini-computer in the
receiver accepts and acknowledges the message. It then prints out the information for display to the
operator.
direct wire - a dedicated leased telephone line from subscriber's premises directly to a central station
monitoring point. Line used for alarms only.
disarm - to turn off the burglary protection in an area using a keypad, keyswitch, or remote
programmer.
disarmed rings - the number of rings the panel counts before answering the phone line when any
areas of the system are disarmed.
display events - a user menu option that allows authorized users to view a record of events that
occurred on the system. The panel stores in memory all alarms, troubles, and restorals as well as
other options.
door access - a feature of DMP Security Command keypads or 733 Wiegand Interface Modules that
allow a user to enter their code number and cause an internal Form C relay to activate and release an
electric door strike or magnet. A door access report containing the keypad address and user number
can also be sent to the central station.
dual reporting - a method of sending the same signals to two separate receivers. An example would
be to send alarms and openings/closings to receiver 1 as well as receiver 2.
DTMF (Dual-Tone Multiple-Frequency) - this feature enables touch-tone dialing.
duress - see ambush.
egress - a programming option that allows individual access doors to be assigned to detect antipassback violations. See also anti-passback.
entry delay - the length of time programmed into the system during which the user can enter the
© 2015 Digital Monitoring Products
premises through an exit zone (usually a front door) and disarm the system.
entry output - a specified output on a panel that is turned on at the start of the entry delay time.
The output is turned off when the area is disarmed or the entry delay time expires.
entry zone - a zone type usually assigned to a perimeter door that allows the user a short amount of
time to enter and exit while the system is armed without setting off an alarm.
Ethernet - a LAN cabling system originally developed by Xerox, Intel, and Digital. Ethernet has a
bandwidth of 10 Mbps and uses the CSMA/CD access method.
events - system activity that generates messages to the reporting device.
events manager - a programming option that specifies when non-alarm reports are sent to the
receiver. Selecting this option does not affect zone alarm, zone trouble, zone restoral, supervisory, or
serviceman reports. Closing reports are not delayed if the closing wait option is enabled.
exit alarm - an alarm that occurs when a zone is still bad at the end of the exit delay time. This
usually occurs when the door through which the user exited does not close all the way before the
programmed exit time expired.
exit delay time - the length of time programmed into the system during which the user can exit the
premises through an exit zone (usually a front door) and disarm the system.
exit output - a specified output on a panel that is turned on any time an exit delay time starts in any
area of the system. The output is turned off when the exit delay time expires or when the arming has
been stopped.

of time to enter and exit while the system is armed without setting off an alarm.
factory defaults - this function of the panel's programmer allows you to quickly turn programming
parameters back to their factory default setting.
false alarm - an alarm signal initiated without the presence of an emergency. This term is generally
used to describe an unwanted alarm condition. A false alarm report is sent by the panel due to a user
error, environmental activation, or malfunction of a security device installed in the system. False
alarms can be controlled by thoroughly training all users and ensuring that equipment is installed
according to the manufacturer's recommendations.
fault - a report that is sent to the central station receiver whenever a fire verify or cross zoned zone
is tripped once but does not trip a second time to cause an alarm.
fire alarm output - a specified output on a panel that is turned on any time a fire type zone is placed
into an alarm condition. The output is turned off using the sensor reset option in the user menu while
no additional fire type zones are in alarm.
fire trouble output - a specified output on a panel that is turned on any time a fire type zone is
placed into a trouble condition or when a supervisory type zone is placed into an alarm or trouble
condition. The output is turned off when all fire and supervisory type zones are restored to normal.
fire verification - typically used on smoke detector zones to provide a reset of the panel's switched
auxiliary power or power supply (from where the smoke detectors are powered) and a delayed length of
time during which the detector must trip again before an alarm is initiated.
fire verify - a zone type typically used with smoke detectors that provides a reset, after a fire alarm,
of the panel's switched auxiliary power and 2-wire smoke detector zones and a delayed length of time

during which the detector must trip again before an alarm is initiated.
flow control - the process of adjusting the flow of data from one device to another to ensure that the
receiving device can handle all of the incoming data. This is particularly important where the sending
device is capable of sending data much faster than the receiving device can receive it.
force arm - this arming option allows the panel to force arm the system and ignore all bad zones.
Zones force armed in a bad condition are capable of restoring and reporting an alarm if tripped. A
report of the force armed zones is sent to the central station receiver if the bypass reports option has
been programmed as YES.
