General
Congratulations on your ownership of an Ademco Security System. You've made a wise
decision in choosing it, for it represents the latest in security protection technology today,
including microcomputer technology to monitor all system status. Ademco is the world's
largest manufacturer of security systems and millions of premises are protected by
Ademco systems.
Basically, this system offers you three forms of protection: burglary, fire and emergency.
Your system may consist of at least one keypad which provides full control of system
operation, various sensors such as motion detectors and door and window sensing
devices, plus a selected number of strategically placed smoke or combustion detectors
designed to provide early warning in case of fire. Your system may also have been programmed to automatically transmit alarm or status messages over the phone lines to a
central alarm monitoring station.
All system functions are controlled by your keypad(s), which are described in the next
section, ABOUT THE KEYPADS.
Zones
Your system's sensing devices have been assigned to various "zones". For example, the
sensing device on your Entry/Exit door may have been assigned to zone 06, sensing
devices on windows in the master bedroom to zone 10, and so on. These zone numbers
will appear on the display when an alarm or trouble condition occurs.
Burglary Protection
The burglary protection portion of your system must be turned on or "armed" before it will
sense burglary alarm conditions and sound an alarm. Your system can be armed in one of
four modes: STAY, AWAY, INSTANT and MAXIMUM. Refer to the ARMING THE SYSTEM
sections for instructions in using these modes of operation.
Chime Feature
Your system can be set to alert you to the opening of a door or window while it is disarmed
by using the CHIME mode. In this mode, three tones will sound at the Keypad(s)
whenever a door or window is opened.
–3–
WWW.DIYALARMFORUM.COM
SYSTEM OVERVIEW
Alarms
When an alarm occurs, both the keypad and external sounders will sound, and a message
at the keypad will identify the zone(s) causing the alarm. In addition, if your system is
connected to a central monitoring station, an alarm message will be sent. To stop the alarm
sounding, you simply disarm the system.
Fire Protection
When an alarm or trouble condition occurs, the keypad displays the number(s) of the
zone(s) that caused the problem, and displays the type of alarm or trouble (ex. FIRE,
ALARM, CHECK). The display remains until it is cleared by entering the OFF sequence
(security code + OFF key) twice.
Phone Access &
Voice Response
Capability
(Optional)
Paging Feature
Your system may include a phone module that will permit you to access the system via a
Touch-tone phone, either on-premises or by call-in when away. The phone access
feature will enable you to do the following:
• Receive synthesized voice messages over the telephone regarding the status of the
security system.
• Arm and disarm the system and perform most function commands via the telephone,
with voice confirmation provided after each command entry.
If the paging feature has been programmed for your system, your pager will respond to
certain conditions as they occur in your system, and display code numbers indicating the
type of condition that has occurred.
For detailed information, refer to PAGING FEATURE on page 25.

WWW.DIYALARMFORUM.COM
SYSTEM OVERVIEW
General
Your keypads allow you to control all system functions. The keypads feature a telephone
style (digital) keys and a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) which shows the nature and location
of all occurrences.
The keypads feature a built-in sounder which emits alarm sounds during alarm and trouble
conditions, and produces warning tones during entry and exit, delay periods (if soprogrammed). The sounder also provides acknowledgment tones when keys are
pressed, and confirmation tones for successful command entries.
Keypad Styles
There are various styles of keypads, any of which may have been used in your system
(see page 7). Although different in appearance, all styles are functionally the same,
except for their display windows (see “Keypad Types” below). The keys on some keypads
are located behind a flip-down cover which can be removed, if desired.
Keypad Types
There are two basic types of keypads, Alpha and Fixed-Word, either of which may have
been used in your system.
• Alpha Keypads
These feature a 2-line, 32 character alphanumeric Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) which
can display the nature and location of all occurrences in friendly English.
• Fixed-Word Keypads
These are functionally similar to the Alpha Keypads, except that their LCD display uses
pre-designated (fixed) words to identify the nature and location of occurrences. Words
displayed on all Fixed-Word keypads are the same, except that their location in the
display window will vary with different models (see Styles A and B on page 6).
Unless stated otherwise, all commands and procedures described herein apply equally to
all keypads.
Typical displays that would appear on both Alpha and Fixed-Word keypads are depicted
throughout this manual.

General
At the time of installation, your installer programmed a personal four-digit Master code,
known only to you and yours. This code is used to perform most system functions,
including arming and disarming of the system. As an additional safety feature, temporary
User Codes can be assigned for use by those not having a need to know the Master
code. Note that the Master code remains in effect even when other user codes are
assigned.
IMPORTANT! When performing any of the procedures that follow, do not
allow more than 2 seconds to elapse between steps, otherwise the entry
will be aborted, and the procedure must be repeated from its beginning.
To Assign, Change, or
Delete User Codes
The Master security code can be used to assign up to 4 secondary User codes. It can also
be used to change any User code or to remove (delete) any secondary User code from
the system.
To Assign or Change a User Code:
1. Enter your Master code and press the CODE [8] key.
2. Enter the single-digit User Number for whom a code is to be assigned or changed
(User Nos. 3 to 6 may be assigned.)
3. Enter the desired 4-digit code for use by that User Number. The keypad will beep
once when a User code has been successfully entered.
To Delete a User Code:
Perform steps 1 and 2 above and then stop. In a few moments, the keypad will beep
once, indicating that the existing code has been deleted.
It is recommended that
obvious codes such as
1-1-1-1 or 1-2-3-4 not be
assigned.
Temporary users should
not be shown how to use
any system function that
they do not need to know
(e.g., how to bypass protection zones).
Duress Code
This feature is intended for use when you are forced to disarm or arm the system under
threat. When used, the system will act normally, but can silently notify the central station of
your situation, if that service has been provided.
The Duress code may be any 4-digit code assigned to User Number 8.

Enter your Master code and press the CODE [8] key.
Enter “2”.
Enter your new Master code.
Enter your new Master code again. The keypad will beep 3 times, indicating
acceptance.
If your system supports "Quick Arming", the "#" key can be pressed in place of the
security code when arming the system. The security code is always required, however,
when disarming the system.
If your system includes a phone module, your installer will have programmed a 2-digit
phone access code for your system. Be sure to obtain this phone code from your installer.
Complete information regarding the use of this phone access feature is provided in a
separate manual entitled PHONE ACCESS USER'S GUIDE, which accompanies the
phone module.

SECURITY CODES (Continued)
General Information
Your system has preset time delays, known as exit delay and entry delay. When you arm
your system, exit delay gives you time to leave through the entry/exit door without
setting off an alarm. Entry delay gives you time to disarm the system when you re-enter
through the entry/exit door. The system must be disarmed, however, before the entry
delay period ends, or an alarm will occur. The keypad will beep slowly during the entry delay period, reminding you to disarm the system.
You can also arm the system with no entry delay at all by using either INSTANT or
MAXIMUM arming modes. These modes can provide greater security while you are
sleeping or while you are away for extended periods of time.
See your installer for your delay times and record them here:
Exit Delay:
seconds
Entry Delay:

Remember, there will be no entry delay
when arming INSTANT or MAXIMUM.
Exit Delay
Alerting Sound
When arming AWAY (see page 18) or MAXIMUM (see page 19), slow beeps will sound
from the keypad(s) during the exit delay, turning to fast beeps during the final five
seconds of the exit delay time.

Exit Alarm Warning
Displays and Sounds
Ask your installer if "Exit
Alarm Warning" is active
for your system, and if
so, check here:
Your system may support and have been programmed for this feature.
When arming, if an exit or interior zone contains a fault during closing at the time the exit
delay ends, the alarm sounder and keypad sound continuously to alert you that an
unwanted alarm can be prevented if you take action:
• If you disarm the system during the entry delay period that will immediately follow, the
sound stops. The keypad displays "CANCELED ALARM "or "CA" as well as a zone
indication. No message is transmitted to the central station.
• If the system is NOT disarmed during the immediately following entry delay period, the
sounds continue until the system is disarmed (or alarm sounder timeout occurs). The
keypad displays "EXIT ALARM" or "EA" as well as a zone indication. An "exit alarm"
message will be sent to the central station.
N o t e : The latter "EXIT ALARM" conditions also result if an alarm from an exit or interior
zone occurs within two minutes after the end of an exit delay.
In any of the above cases, a second OFF sequence (security code + OFF key) will clear
the keypad display.
CHIME MODE
9
Using the
CHIME Key
This feature can be used
only while the burglary
system is disarmed.
Your system can be set to alert you to the opening of a door or window while it is disarmed
by using CHIME mode. When activated, three tones will sound at the Keypad whenever a
door or window is opened. Pressing the READY key will display the open protection
points.
To turn Chime Mode on, enter the security code and press the CHIME key. The
CHIME message will appear.
To turn Chime Mode off, enter the security code and press the CHIME key again.

PANIC KEYS
Using
Panic Keys
Your system may have been programmed to use special keys or combinations of keys to
manually activate emergency (panic) functions. The functions that might be programmed
are: Silent Emergency, Audible Emergency, Personal Emergency, and Fire.
A silent emergency sends a silent alarm signal to the central station*, but there is no
audible alarm or visual display.
An audible emergency sends a signal to the central station* and sounds a loud,
steady alarm at your keypad(s) and at any external sounders that may be connected
(ALARM plus a zone number is also displayed).
A personal emergency alarm sends an emergency message to the central station*
and sounds at keypad(s), but not at external bells or sirens.
A fire alarm sends a fire alarm message to the central station* and uniquely sounds at
keypad(s) and external bells and sirens (FIRE plus a zone number is also displayed).
* If connected to a central station.
TO INITIATE A PANIC FUNCTION AT ANY TIME OF DAY OR NIGHT:
• Press an active lettered key (A, B or C) for at least two seconds.
or, if lettered keys are not present on the keypad,
• Press both keys of an active pair at the same time.
See next page for panic functions that have been assigned to keys.

7. After all protection points have been checked and restored, there should be no zone
identification numbers displayed. If a problem is experienced with any
protection point (no confirming sounds, no display), CALL FOR
SERVICE IMMEDIATELY.
8. Turn off the Test mode by entering the security code and pressing the OFF key.
PAGING FEATURE
If the paging feature has been programmed for your system, your pager will respond to certain conditions as they
occur in your system by displaying a 10-digit code that will indicate the type of condition that has occurred. The 10digit code will use the following format: SSSS–EEE–NNN
SSSS will be your particular 4-digit subscriber No. (this same number will always appear at the beginning of the
display on your pager).
EEE will be a 3-digit number that describes the event that has occurred in your system (see explanation below).
NNN will be a 3-digit User or zone number, depending on the type of event that has occurred.
The 3-digit Event Codes (EEE) that can be displayed are:
911 = Alarm (NNN that follows this code will be the zone number that has caused the alarm)
001 = Open, System disarmed (NNN that follows this code will be the User number)
002 = Close, System armed (NNN that follows this code will be the User number)
811 = Trouble (NNN that follows this code will be the zone number that has caused the trouble)
Example 1. Pager displays: 123 4 –91 1 –0 04 This indicates that your system (Subscriber No. 1234) is reporting an Alarm (911), due to zone 4 (004) being
faulted.
Example 2. Pager displays: 1 23 4 –00 1 –00 5 This indicates that your system (Subscriber No. 1234) is reporting an open/disarming (001) by User 5 (005).

TROUBLE CONDITIONS (Continued)
General
Your fire alarm system (if installed) is on 24 hours a day, for continuous protection. In the
event of an emergency, the strategically located smoke and heat detectors will automatically send signals to your system, triggering a loud, interrupted pulsed sound* from
the Keypad(s). This sound will also be produced by optional exterior sounders. A FIRE
message will appear at your Keypad and remain on until you silence the alarm (see below
for silencing fire alarms).
* Temporal pulse sounding is produced for Fire alarms, as follows:
3 pulses–pause–3 pulses–pause–3 pulses. . . , repeated.

Early warning fire detection is best achieved by
the installation of fire detection equipment in all
rooms and areas of the household as follows: A
smoke detector installed outside of each
separate sleeping area, in the immediate vicinity
of the bedrooms and on each additional story of
the family living unit, including basements and
excluding crawl spaces and unfinished attics.
In addition, the NFPA recommends that you
install heat or smoke detectors in the living
room, dining room, bedroom(s), kitchen,
hallway(s), attic, furnace room, utility and
storage rooms, basements and attached
garages.

Establish and regularly practice a plan of escape in the event of fire. The following steps
are recommended by the National Fire Protection Association:
1. Plan on your detector or your interior and/or exterior sounders warning all occupants.
2. Determine two means of escape from each room. One path of escape should lead to
the door that permits normal exit from the building. The other may be a window,
should your path be unpassable. Station an escape ladder at such windows if there
is a long drop to the ground.
3. Sketch a floor plan of the building. Show windows, doors, stairs and rooftops that
can be used to escape. Indicate escape routes for each room. Keep these routes
free from obstruction and post copies of the escape routes in every room.
4. Make sure that all bedroom doors are shut while you are asleep. This will prevent
deadly smoke from entering while you escape.
5. Try the door. If the door is hot, check your alternate escape route. If the door is cool,
open it cautiously. Be prepared to slam the door if smoke or heat rushes in.

•
BACK
6. In smoky areas, crawl close to floor, hold your breath, and/or cover mouth and nose
with a wet cloth.
7. Escape quickly; don't panic.

8. Establish a common meeting place outdoors, away from your premises, where

NOTICE
AVIS
The Canadian Department of Communications label identifies
certified equipment. This certification means that the equipment
meets certain telecommunications network protective, operational
and safety requirements. The Department does not guarantee the
equipment will operate to the user's satisfaction.
Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that it is
permissible to be connected to the facilities of the local
telecommunications company. The equipment must also be installed
using an acceptable method of connection. In some cases, the
company's inside wiring associated with a single line individual
service may be extended by means of certified connector assembly
(telephone extension cord). The customer should be aware that
compliance with the above conditions may not prevent degradation of
service in some situations.
Repairs to certified equipment should be made by an authorized
Canadian maintenance facility designated by the supplier. Any
repairs or alterations made by the user to this equipment, or
equipment malfunctions, may give the telecommunications company
cause to request the user to disconnect the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical
ground connections of the power utility, telephone lines and internal
metallic water pipe system, if present, are connected together. This
precaution may be particularly important in rural areas.
Caution: User should not attempt to make such connections
themselves, but should contact the appropriate electric inspection
authority, or electrician, as appropriate.
The Load Number (LN) assigned to each terminal device denotes
the percentage of the total load to be connected to a telephone loop
which is used by the device, to prevent overloading. The termination
on a loop may consist of any combination of devices subject only to
the requirement that the total of the Load Numbers of all the devices
does not exceed 100.
L'étiquette du ministère des Communications du Canada identifie le matériel
homologué. Cette étiquette certifie que le matériel est conforme à certaines normes
de protection, d'exploitation et de sécurité des réseaux de télécommunications. Le
ministère n'assure toutefois pas que le matériel fonctionnera à la satisfaction de
l'utilisateur.
Avant d'installer ce matériel, l'utilisateur doit s'assurer qu'il est permis de le
raccorder aux installations de l'entreprise locale de télécommunications. Le matériel
doit également être installé en suivant une méthode acceptée de raccordement. Dans
certains cas, les fils intérieurs de l'entreprise utilisés pour un service individuel à la
ligne unique peuvent être prolongés au moyen d'un dispositif homologué de
raccordement (cordon prolongateur téléphonique interne). L'abonne ne doit pas
oublier qu'il est possible que la conformité aux conditions énoncées ci-dessus n'empèche pas la dégradation du service dans certaines situations. Actuellement, les
entreprises de télécommunications ne permettent pas que l'on raccorde leur
matériel aux prises d'abonnés, sauf dans les cas precis prévus par les tarifs
particuliers de ces entreprises.
Les réparations du matériel homologué doivent être effectuées pas un centre
d'entretien canadien autorisé désigné par le fournisseur. La compagnie de
télécommunications peut demander à l'utilisateur de débrancher un appareil à la
suite de réparations ou de modifications effectuées par l'utilisateur ou à cause de
mauvais fonctionnement.
Pour sa propre protection, l'utilisateur doit s'assurer que tous les fils de mise en
terre de la source d'énergie électrique, des lignes téléphoniques de réseau de
conduites d'eau, s'il y en a, soient raccordés ensemble. Cette précaution est
particulièrement importante dans les régions rurales.
Avertissement: L'utilisateur ne doit pas tenter de faire ces raccordements luimême; il doit avoir recours à un service d'inspection des installations électriques, ou
à un électricien, selon le cas.
L'indice de charge (IC) assigné à chaque dispositif terminal pour éviter toute
surcharge indique le pourcentage de la charge totale qui peut être raccordé à un
circuit téléphonique fermé utilisé par ce dispositif. La terminaison du circuit fermé
peut être constituée de n'importe quelle combinaison de dispositifs, pourvu que la
somme des indices de charge de l'ensemble des dispositifs ne dépasse pas 100.

WARNING! THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS ALARM SYSTEM
While this system is an advanced design security system, it does not offer guaranteed protection against burglary or fire or other
emergency. Any alarm system, whether commercial or residential, is subject to compromise or failure to warn for a variety of reasons.
For example:
• Intruders may gain access through unprotected openings or have the technical sophistication to bypass an alarm sensor or
disconnect an alarm warning device.
• Intrusion detectors (e.g. passive infrared detectors), smoke detectors, and many other sensing devices will not work without power.
Battery operated devices will not work without batteries, with dead batteries, or if the batteries are not put in properly. Devices
powered solely by AC will not work if their AC power supply is cut off for any reason, however briefly.
• Signals sent by wireless transmitters may be blocked or reflected by metal before they reach the alarm receiver. Even if the signal
path has been recently checked during a weekly test, blockage can occur if a metal object is moved into the path.
• A user may not be able to reach a panic or emergency button quickly enough.
• While smoke detectors have played a key role in reducing residential fire deaths in the United States, they may not activate or
provide early warning for a variety of reasons in as many as 35% of all fires, according to data published by the Federal Emergency
Management Agency. Some of the reasons smoke detectors used in conjunction with this System may not work are as follows.
Smoke detectors may have been improperly installed and positioned. Smoke detectors may not sense fires that start where smoke
cannot reach the detectors, such as in chimneys, in walls, or roofs, or on the other side of closed doors. Smoke detectors also may
not sense a fire on another level of a residence or building. A second floor detector, for example, may not sense a first floor or
basement fire. Moreover, smoke detectors have sensing limitations. No smoke detector can sense every kind of fire every time. In
general, detectors may not always warn about fires caused by carelessness and safety hazards like smoking in bed, violent
explosions, escaping gas, improper storage of flammable materials, overloaded electrical circuits, children playing with matches, or
arson. Depending upon the nature of the fire and/or the locations of the smoke detectors, the detector, even if it operates as
anticipated, may not provide sufficient warning to allow all occupants to escape in time to prevent injury or death.
• Passive Infrared Motion Detectors can only detect intrusion within the designed ranges as diagrammed in their installation manual.
Passive Infrared Detectors do not provide volumetric area protection. They do create multiple beams of protection, and intrusion can
only be detected in unobstructed areas covered by those beams. They cannot detect motion or intrusion that takes place behind
walls, ceilings, floors, closed doors, glass partitions, glass doors, or windows. Mechanical tampering, masking, painting or spraying
of any material on the mirrors, windows or any part of the optical system can reduce their detection ability. Passive Infrared
Detectors sense changes in temperature; however, as the ambient temperature of protected area approaches the temperature range
of 90° to 105°F (32° to 40°C), the detection performance can decrease.
• Alarm warning devices such as sirens, bells or horns may not alert people or wake up sleepers if they are located on the other side of
closed or partly open doors. If warning devices sound on a different level of the residence from the bedrooms, then they are less
likely to waken or alert people inside the bedrooms. Even persons who are awake may not hear the warning if the alarm is muffled
from a stereo, radio, air conditioner or other appliance, or by passing traffic. Finally, alarm warning devices, however loud, may not
warn hearing-impaired people or waken deep sleepers.
• Telephone lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a premises to a central monitoring station may be out of service or temporarily
out of service. Telephone lines are also subject to compromise by sophisticated intruders.
• Even if the system responds to the emergency as intended, however, occupants may have insufficient time to protect themselves
from the situation. In the case of a monitored alarm system, authorities may not respond appropriately.
• This equipment, like other electrical devices, is subject to component failure. Even though this equipment is designed to last as long
as 10 years, the electronic components could fail at any time.
The most common cause of an alarm system not functioning when an intrusion or fire occurs is inadequate maintenance. This alarm
system should be tested weekly to make sure all sensors and transmitters are working properly.
Wireless transmitters (used with some systems) are designed to provide long battery life under normal operating conditions. Longevity
of batteries may be as much as 4 to 7 years, depending on the environment, usage, and the specific wireless device being used.
External factors such as humidity, high or low temperatures, as well as large swings in temperature, may all reduce the actual battery
life in a given installation. This wireless system, however, can identify a true low battery situation, thus allowing time to arrange a
change of battery to maintain protection for that given point within the system.
Installing an alarm system may make one eligible for lower insurance rates, but an alarm system is not a substitute for insurance.
Homeowners, property owners and renters should continue to act prudently in protecting themselves and continue to insure their lives
and property.
We continue to develop new and improved protection devices. Users of alarm systems owe it to themselves and their loved ones to
learn about these developments.
