Intrusion Alarm Systems | B4512 Control Panels
B4512 Control Panels
The B4512 Control Panel integrates intrusion and
residential fire, providing one simple user interface for
both systems. The B4512 provides up to 28
individually identified points that can be split into 2
areas. The control panel includes a built-in Ethernet
port for IP network communications, and is
compatible with modules that send events to selected
public switched telephone network (PSTN), IP
network, or cellular network destinations through four
programmable route groups.
With the B4512, you can monitor doors, windows,
inventory and showrooms as well as security devices.
Each user can have a personalized passcode to turn
the system on and off or silence alarms. Users can also
have a wireless keyfob to turn on the system from a
parking area or to turn off the system when carrying
Supports a combination of up to 28 hardwired or
wireless points for installation flexibility and 2 areas

Use programmable authority levels with restricted
privileges to provide service, security, and cleaning
personnel with full or limited access. Use the three
programmable outputs (expandable up to 27) to turn
on lights or open and lock doors. You can:
• Turn on the system to secure the stock room while
you conduct daily business.
• Perform tests to ensure your system is working
• Set your system to alarm immediately if a door opens.
• Activate the Watch feature so a tone sounds
whenever a customer enters.
• Set a schedule for your system to automatically turn
on at closing time.
• Use wireless security options to customize your
Central monitoring stations provide 24-hour system
monitoring with access to vital services. Professional
security personnel can test the system, monitor
system activity, and alert the police, fire department,
or other emergency response teams if necessary.

• Dangerous gas indicator includes carbon monoxide
(NFPA 720)
• Watch mode
• Scheduled events (SKEDs) perform several functions,
such as turn on (arm) the system, turn off (disarm)
the system, bypass and unbypass points, and control
User interface
• Supervision of up to 8 keypads
• Custom keypad text is fully programmable through
• Full function command menu including custom
• Authority by area and 32 character name for each
• 14 custom authority levels control user’s authority to
change, add, or delete passcodes to disarm or bypass
points; and to start system tests
Area configurations
Area programming offers a wide selection of different
system configurations. The control panel assigns an
account number to each area to define annunciation,
control, and reporting functions. Make area arming
conditional on other areas (master or associate), if
desired. You can configure any area for perimeter and
interior arming, not requiring a separate area for this
Custom functions
For added convenience, the installer can program
custom functions that allow customers to complete
complex tasks with fewer keystrokes. For example, a
custom function can bypass a group of points and arm
the system, allowing the user to perform this function
with one easy command. Installers can use custom
functions to control a particular room. Customers
activate custom functions with a keypad, with a key
fob, by faulting a point, or automatically as a
scheduled event (SKED).
Passcode security
• Two-Man Rule - Requires two people with two unique
passcodes to be present at the time of opening.
• Early Ambush - Allows users to verify that the facility
is safe by requiring two passcode entries at the same
keypad, sending a duress event if the user does not
enter the passcode a second time after inspecting the
Easy exit control
The control panel changes from one On (armed) state
to another On (armed) state without turning of
(disarming) the system. For example, if you change the
state from Part On (Perimeter Arm) to All On (Master
Arm), the control panel complies and reports the
change. Easy Exit Control reduces the number of
keystrokes, simplifying system operation.
Programmable passcode-controlled menu list
Passcode-controlled shortcuts provide users only with
the options and information pertinent to them,
simplifying system operation.
Flexible control
The system provides the flexibility to choose added
convenience or high security. For example, you can
restrict to a keypad's immediate local area turning on
(arming) and turning off (disarming) the system with a
passcode, even if the user has access to other areas.
This is particularly useful for high security areas,
where a user may have access to the area, but would
prefer to only turn off (disarm) the area individually
rather than with the rest of the system. Another option
is to program the system to turn off all areas the user
can access from any keypad.
Invisible walk test
A menu item allows the user to test invisible 24-hour
points within the scope of the keypad without sending
a report to the central station.
System users
The system supports up to 32 users, each can have a
passcode and a wireless key fob. User passcodes
contain three to six digits. You can assign passcodes
to one of 14 customized authority levels in each area
and can be restricted to operate only during certain
Communication formats
The control panel prioritizes and sends reports to four
route groups. Network communication uses the
Modem4 communication format, whereas phone
communication uses Contact ID or Modem4
communications formats. Each group has a
programmable primary and backup destination.
The control panel provides flexible communications for
most central stations with reporting capabilities such

IP communication
The control panel uses the on-board Ethernet
connector, B440 Conettix Plug-in Cellular
Communicator, or B426 Conettix Ethernet
Communication Module to communicate with Conettix
D6600 and Conettix D6100IPv6 Communications
Receiver/Gateways. Using Conettix IP communication
offers a secure path that includes anti-replay/antisubstitution features and provides enhanced security
with encryption*. You can use the Ethernet connection
for remote programming.
The control panel supports Domain Name System
(DNS) for both remote programming and central
station communication. DNS provides ease of use,
eliminating the need to use static IP addresses as your
reporting destination, and accommodates a simple
solution for central station disaster recovery. IP Setup
is available via the keypad Installer menu and the
remote programming software, eliminating the need to
use complicated internet programming tools such as
ARP and Telnet. The control panel supports both IPv6
and IPv4 networks.
For more information on the enhanced
communications capabilities, refer to RPS Help or the
Control Panels (B5512/B4512) Program Entry Guide
(P/N: F01U265465).
Communication paths
The control panel accommodates up to four separate
phone and four separate network paths to the central
station receiver. When resetting alarms or turning a
system on and off, the user is identified by name and
Personal notification
The control panel can send and receive SMS messages
for personal notification or system configuration when
using a cellular plug-in communicator. You can
configure up to 16 cellular phone numbers to receive
SMS messages from the control panel.
Firmware updates
Remote firmware updates through Remote
Programming Software (RPS) using the RPS Firmware
Update Wizard through the IP connection (on-board
Ethernet connection, B426 Conettix Ethernet
Communication Module, or B440 Conettix Plug-in
Cellular Communicator), provides for easy feature
enhancements without replacing ROM chips.
A wide variety of input options
Each point:
• Accommodates normally‑open (NO) and
normally‑closed (NC) devices with end‑of‑line (EOL)
resistor supervision.
• Accepts programming for fire, gas, fire supervisory, or
intrusion applications.
• Supports hard-wired or wireless devices.
Security and fire detection
The control panel provides eight on-board points, and
up to 20 additional off-board points (depending on
model and expansion interfaces). You can program
individual points to monitor some types of burglar
alarms, fire alarms, and supervision devices.
Event log
The event log stores up to 127 local and transmitted
events. The event log includes time, date, event, area,
point, and user number. View the event log from a
keypad or use RPS to remotely retrieve event
information. RPS operators can retrieve events
periodically using one phone call, rather than receiving
several calls each day. When the event log reaches a
programmed threshold of stored events, it can send an
optional report to a receiver.
Scheduled events (SKEDs)
The internal clock and calendar start individually
scheduled events (SKEDs). SKEDs perform functions
such as turn on or off, relay control, or point
The control panel offers:
• Five scheduled events with up to 25 different
• Two opening windows and two closing windows
• Two user windows
• Day-of-week, date-of-month, or holiday only schedules
• One holiday schedule of 366 days (leap year)
Installers can perform limited programming on-site
with a keypad (critical parameters; such as account
IDs, central station and RPS IP addresses and phone
numbers, reporting formats, and more).They can also
do full programming on-site or remotely (attended or
unattended) with RPS. A programmable system
passcode prevents unauthorized remote programming.
Keypads and RPS offer diagnostic help for monitoring
and troubleshooting. The Diagnostic features allow
you to view the status of the on-board Ethernet
connection, plug-in communicators, and SDI2 devices,
including inputs, outputs, and RF. The features provide
the status of the control panel and its connected
devices, such as firmware version, power, and missing
conditions. View the status of each area. Diagnostics
also include connection data for connected wireless
and Ethernet devices.
