Department of Communications Notice
NOTICE: 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.
User 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: Users 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.
The Load Number of this unit is 2.
AVIS:
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 télécommunication. 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 ligne unique peuvent être prolongés au moyen d’un dispositif homologué de raccordement
(cordon prolongateur téléphonique interne). L’abonné 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 à des
jacks d’abonné, sauf dans les cas précis prévus par les tarrifs particuliers de ces entreprises.
Les réparations de matériel homologué doivent être effectuées par 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 à la terre de la source
d’énergie électrique, des lignes téléphoniques et des canalisations d’eau métalliques, s’il y en a, sont
raccordés ensemble. Cette précaution est particulièrement importante dans les régions rurales.
AVERTISSEMENT: L’utilisateur ne doit pas tenter de faire ces raccordements lui-même; 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 indique, pour éviter toute surcharge, le
pourcentage de la charge totale qui peut être raccordée à un circuit téléphonique bouclé utilisé par ce
dispositif. La terminaison du circuit bouclé 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.
L’Indice de charge de ce produit est 2.
• If the exit is above the ground level, an approved fire ladder or rope
should be provided as well as training in its use.
• Exits on the ground level should be kept clear. Be sure to remove snow from
exterior patio doors in winter; outdoor furniture or equipment should not block
exits.
• The family should have a predetermined assembly point where everyone can
be accounted for; for example, across the street or at a neighbour’s house.
• Once everyone is out of the house, call the Fire Department.
• A good plan emphasizes quick escape. Do not investigate first or attempt to
fight the fire, and do not attempt to rescue belongings or pets as this takes
up valuable time. Once outside, do not re-enter the house. Wait for the fire
department.
• Write the plan down and rehearse frequently, so that should an emergency
arise, everyone will know what they are to do. Revise the plan as conditions
change; for example, when there are more or fewer family members in the
home, or if there are changes to the house.
• Make sure your fire warning system is operational by conducting weekly tests
as noted elsewhere in this manual. If you are unsure about system operation,
contact your installing dealer.
• It is recommended that you contact your local fire department and request
further information on home fire safety and escape planning. If available, have
your local fire prevention officer conduct an in-house fire safety inspection.

ABOUT YOUR SECURITY SYSTEM
Your DSC security equipment has been designed to give the greatest possible
flexibility and convenience. Read this manual carefully and have your installer
instruct you on system operation and on which features have been implemented
in your system. All users of this system should be equally instructed in its use.
Fill out the System Information page and store this manual in a safe place for
future reference.
8. When testing is complete, call and advise the monitoring station.
MAINTENANCE
With normal use, the system requires minimum maintenance. The following
points should be observed.
1. Do not wash the keypad with a wet cloth. Light dusting with a barely damp
cloth should remove normal accumulations of dust.
Fire Detection
This equipment is capable of monitoring fire detection devices such as smoke
detectors and providing a warning if a fire condition is detected. Good fire
detection depends on having adequate number of detectors placed in appropriate
locations. This equipment should be installed in accordance with applicable
standards and codes. Carefully review the Family Escape Planning guidelines in
this manual.
2. The battery/bell test is designed to determine battery condition, however it is
recommended that the standby battery be replaced every three years.
NOTE: Your installer must enable the fire detection portion of this
equipment before it becomes functional.
Most fires occur in the home and to minimize this danger it is recommended
that a household fire safety audit be conducted and a family escape plan be
developed.
Testing
To insure that your system continues to function as intended, it is important that you
test your system weekly. See the testing procedure elsewhere in this manual. If
your system does not function properly, call your installing company for service.
GENERAL SYSTEM OPERATION
Your security system is made up of a DSC PC1500 or PC1550 control panel, one
or more LED615 keypads and various sensors and detectors. The control panel
will be mounted out of the way in a utility closet or in a basement. The metal cabinet
contains the system electronics, fuses and stand-by battery. There is normally no
reason for anyone but the installer or serviceman to have access to the control
panel. The LED615 keypads have an audible indicator (buzzer), a group of zone
and system status lights and command entry keys. The keypad is used to send
commands to the system and to display the current system status. The security
station(s) will be mounted in a convenient location inside the protected premises
close to the entry/exit door(s).
The security system has several zones of area protection and each of these zones
will have one or more sensors connected to it (motion detectors, glassbreak
detectors, door contacts, etc.). When a sensor is in alarm, the zone of alarm will
be indicated on the LED615 (zone lights 1 through 6).
Important Notice
A security system cannot prevent emergencies. It is only
intended to alert you and, if included, a monitoring station, of
an emergency situation. Security systems are generally very
reliable but they may not work under all conditions and they
are not a substitute for prudent security practices or life and
property insurance. Your security system should be installed
and serviced by qualified security professionals who should
instruct you on the level of protection that has been provided
and on system operations.
3. For other system devices such as passive infrared, ultrasonic or microwave
motion detectors, glassbreak detectors or smoke detectors, consult the
respective manufacturer’s literature for testing and maintenance.
FIRE SAFETY IN THE HOME
HOUSEHOLD FIRE SAFETY AUDIT
1. Are all electrical appliances and outlets in a safe condition? Check for frayed
cords, over-loaded lighting circuits, etc. If you are uncertain about the
condition of your electrical appliances or household service, have a
professional evaluation.
2. Are all flammable liquids stored safely in closed containers in a well ventilated
cool area? Cleaning with flammable liquids should be avoided.
3. Are fire hazardous materials (matches) well out of reach of children?
4. Are furnaces and wood burning appliances properly installed, clean and in
good working order? Have a professional evaluation.
FAMILY ESCAPE PLANNING
There is often very little time between the detection of a fire and the time it
becomes deadly. It is thus very important that a family escape plan be
developed and rehearsed.
1. Every family member should participate in developing the escape plan.
2. Study the possible escape routes from each location within the house and
since many fires occur at night, special attention should be given to the
escape routes from sleeping quarters.
3. It is essential that escape from a bedroom be possible without opening the
interior door. Consider the following when making your escape plans:
• Make sure that doors and windows that open to the outside are easily
opened. Ensure that they are not painted shut, and that their locking
mechanisms operate smoothly.
• If opening the exit or using the exit is too difficult for children, the elderly or
handicapped, plans for rescue should be developed. This includes making
sure that those who are to perform the rescue can promptly hear the fire
warning signal.

[P] Panic
Holding this key down for two seconds causes a steady tone on your siren or
bell if your installer has programmed this key for audible operation. An auxiliary
warning device is also activated if your installer has connected it to your
system. Enter a valid access code to silence the alarm.
The 4 digit Master Code is used to arm and disarm the security system, to
program additional security codes and to change other system features. The
Master Code will be supplied to you by your installer. All keypad entries are
made by pressing one key at a time. (See Additional Codes section)
FIRE ALARM OPERATIONS
ARMING THE SYSTEM
MASTER CODE
Alarm
On a fire alarm, the bell/siren will sound pulsing. The digital communicator
transmission is delayed for 30 seconds. If the alarm is not acknowledged
within the 30 second delay, the communicator will transmit the fire alarm to the
monitoring station.
Bypass light
If the “Bypass” light is ON, insure that zones are intentionally bypassed before
arming the system (See Zone Bypassing section).
Silence
To silence the bell/siren, press the [#] key. If the alarm is silenced and the
smoke detector is not reset, the alarm will resound after 90 seconds.
Trouble light
If the “ Trouble” light is ON, check to see what the trouble condition is and call
for service. (See Viewing Trouble Conditions section).
Reset
To restore the smoke detector(s) to normal, press [ ][7]. If the detector still
has smoke in it, the alarm will resound and the sequence described above will
repeat. If the detector is clear of smoke, the system will return to normal.
NOTE: If you suspect that the communicator has transmitted and there is
no fire condition, call the monitoring station to avoid an
unnecessary response. If a fire condition is apparent, follow your
evacuation plan immediately. If the alarm sounds at night,
evacuate immediately.
Ready light
If the “Ready” light is NOT ON, check to see that all doors and windows are
closed and that motion is stopped in areas covered by motion detectors. The
system cannot be armed unless the “Ready” light is ON indicating that all
zones are closed.
∗
TESTING YOUR SYSTEM
It is recommended that you test your system weekly. Perform system
tests in the off-peak hours, such as early morning or late evening.
1. Inform the monitoring station that you are testing your system.
2. Disarm the system (“Ready” light ON).
3. Perform a bell/battery test by pressing [ ][6][Master Code]. The signal will
sound for about 2 seconds. If a trouble occurs after the test, press [ ][2] to
view the trouble condition.
4. Activate each sensor in turn (e.g. open a door/window or walk in motion
detector areas). Observe the zone light come ON when the zone is
activated. The zone light will go OFF when the system restores to normal
(i.e. door or window closed).
5. If they are programmed for operation, press the [F], [A], and [P] keys in
turn. The [F] key will sound the bell/siren in a pulsed mode. Enter the access
code to silence the alarm. The [A] key is silent. The [P] key may be
programmed as silent or audible. If the alarm sounds, enter the access
code to silence.
6. If the panel has a zone programmed for fire, activation will cause the alarm
signal to sound in a pulsed mode. CAUTION: Do not use an open flame
or burn materials to test a smoke detector. Contact your alarm installer
for information on safe methods to activate a smoke detector.
7. Should the system fail to operate properly, call your alarm dealer for service.
∗
10
∗
Check the following items before arming the system:
NOTE: The system may be armed with a zone bypassed or a trouble present
but your security protection will be reduced.
To Arm
Enter your 4 digit access code. As each digit is entered, the keypad sounder will
beep. If the correct access code is entered, the keypad sounder will beep
quickly and the “Armed” light will come ON.
If the access code was entered incorrectly or the “Ready” light comes ON, the
keypad buzzer will sound steadily for 2 seconds. If this occurs, press the [#] key
and re-enter your access code.
When the correct access code is entered and the “Armed” light comes ON, exit
the premises through the door indicated by your installer as the Exit-Entry door.
At the end of the exit delay period, all lights, except the “Armed” light, will go out
and the system will be armed. The exit time delay can be changed by your
installer.
AUTO-BYPASS OPTION - HOME-AWAY ARMING
This feature, if selected by your installer, will allow you to arm your system with any
valid access code and the system will automatically bypass the interior zones. The
“Bypass” light will come on. If you exit within the allowed exit time, the system will
automatically activate the interior zones and the “Bypass” light will go out. This
feature is designed to save the customer from having to manually bypass interior
zones each time they wish to arm the system and remain at home.
In residential applications where the system has been armed and the interior
zones are automatically bypassed, the interior zones can be reactivated from a
keypad that is outside the interior zone's protection area. To reactivate the interior
zones, press [ ] then [1] and the “Bypass” light will go out.
∗
3
ENTRY DELAY OFF ARMING
∗
ZONE BYPASSING (Continued)
If you wish to arm your system and eliminate the entry delay, enter [ ][9]
before your access code. The “Armed” light will flash as a reminder that the
system is armed and has no entry delay. An entry through any zone
programmed as a delay zone will create an instant alarm.
For security reasons, your installer may prevent the bypass command from
working on certain zones. The “Bypass” light is ON as long as ONE or more
zones are bypassed. Do not unintentionally arm the system with zones
bypassed.
e.g. To arm without entry delay, press [ ][9][access code]
Zone bypasses are automatically cancelled each time the system is disarmed
and must be re-applied before the next arming.
∗
DISARMING THE SYSTEM
Enter the premises only through the door(s) designated by your installer as the
entry door. Entering by any other door will sound an immediate alarm. As soon
as the entry door is opened, the keypad sounder will come on to indicate that
the system should be disarmed. Go to the keypad and enter your four digit
access code. If an error is made entering the code, press the [#] key and enter
your code again. As soon as the correct code is entered, the “Armed” light will
go out and the keypad sounder will silence.
The correct access code must be entered before the entry time expires. The
entry time delay may be changed by your installer. If an alarm occurred during
the period the system was armed, the “Memory” light and the zone light of the
zone that caused the alarm will flash for two minutes. After the two minute
period, the “Memory” light and zone light will stop flashing and the panel will
return to the ready state. Pressing the [#] key during the two minute period will
cancel the alarm memory display.
If a trouble is present when the panel is disarmed, the “Trouble” light will come
ON (See Viewing Trouble Conditions section to determine the source of the
trouble.) Note that troubles will not display while the system is in the Alarm
Memory Display Mode.
If you return home and find that an alarm has occurred while you were away, it
is possible that an intruder may still be on the premises. Go to a neighbour's
house and call the local police to investigate.
VIEWING TROUBLE CONDITIONS
The PC1500/PC1550 continuously monitors a number of possible trouble
conditions. If one of these trouble conditions occur, the keypad will beep twice
every 10 seconds and the keypad “Trouble” indicator will light. Pressing any key
on the keypad will silence the sounder but the “Trouble” light will remain ON until
the trouble condition is cleared. If you cannot determine the cause of the trouble
condition, contact your installer for assistance.
To View Type of Trouble:
Press [ ][2] to display the type of trouble. A zone light will come on to indicate
which type of trouble exists.
∗
Press [#] to return to Ready.

1 ........... Low or disconnected standby battery.
2 ........... Loss of AC power (Loss of AC power will turn on the
trouble light but keypad sounder will not sound).
3 ........... Fuse open (bell/siren).
4 ........... Failure to communicate with monitoring station.
5 ........... Tamper trouble.
6 ........... Loss of time on the system clock.
QUICK ARM FEATURE
When the Quick-Arm feature is enabled, the system may be armed simply by
pressing [ ][0] instead of the 4 digit access code. This feature allows a person
to arm but not disarm the system.
Enter [ ][6][Master Code][4] to turn the Quick-Arm feature ON and OFF. When
the command is entered, the keypad buzzer will beep 3 times if Quick-Arm is
being enabled and will sound one long beep if it is being disabled.
Press [#] to return to Ready.
∗
∗
DOOR CHIME FEATURE
The door chime feature is used, while the panel is disarmed, to provide a tone
from the keypad each time a door or window is opened or closed. The doors
and windows which will provide this indication are programmed by your installer.
Enter [ ][6][Master Code][6] to turn the door chime feature ON and OFF. When
the command is entered, the keypad buzzer will beep 3 times if the door chime
feature is being enabled, and will sound one long beep if it is being disabled.
Press [#] to return to Ready.
∗
4
KEYPAD ZONES
There are three keys on the keypad labelled [F] Fire, [A] Auxiliary and [P] Panic.
These keys are only functional if they have been programmed by your installer.
The installer should indicate which of these keys are functional by placing a
coloured label next to the key symbol on the keypad door label.
[F] Fire
Holding this key down for two seconds will sound a Fire Alarm. The alarm will
sound pulsing. The keypad will sound three beeps once the panel has accepted
the alarm. An auxiliary warning device is also activated if your installer has
connected it to your system. To silence the alarm, enter a valid access code.
[A] Auxiliary
Holding this key down for two seconds activates this function if your installer has
programmed it. There is no audible alarm and no lights on the keypad will come
on. When the panel has accepted the alarm, the keypad will sound a series of
beeps. An auxiliary warning device is activated ONLY IF connected to your
system by your installer.

If your system has been installed with fire detectors and the alarm sounds in a
pulsing mode, follow your Emergency Evacuation Plan immediately. See the
guide for family escape planning elsewhere in this manual.
Intrusion Alarm
If an intrusion alarm sounds (continuous Bell/Siren), the alarm may be silenced
by entering your access code. If the alarm was unintentional, call local
authorities immediately to avoid an unnecessary response.
Additional Codes
Up to 5 additional access codes (2 through 6) may be programmed. The 6th
access code may be established by your installer as a One-Time use code.
To program a new code:
Enter [ ][5][Master Code][code number][new 4 digit code]
∗
The [code number] is a single digit either 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6.
Press [#] to return to Ready.
If an access code already exists, it will be replaced by the new code.
You can determine the source of the alarm by following the instructions in the
Alarm Viewing section of this manual. Once the source of the alarm has been
corrected, the panel can be restored to its original armed state.
Record your new code(s) on the System Information page in this book.
ZONE BYPASSING
The [code number] is a single digit either 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6.
Use zone bypassing when access is needed to part of the protected area while
the system is armed. Bypassed zones will not cause an alarm. Zones that are
temporarily out of service due to damaged wiring or contacts may be
bypassed to allow system arming (partial protection) until repairs can be made.
Zones cannot be bypassed after the system is armed.
Press [#] to return to Ready.
Do not erase the Master Code (code number 1).
To bypass zones:
Enter [ ][1][Zone number(s) to be bypassed]
∗
Enter zone number(s) as single digits (1-6).
As each zone is bypassed, the zone light will come ON. If a zone is bypassed
in error, press that zone number again and the zone light will go OFF indicating
that the zone is not bypassed.
Press [#] to return to Ready.
To recall last group of zones bypassed:
Enter [ ][1][9]
∗
Zone lights for the last group of zones bypassed will come ON to show which
zones are bypassed. If you wish to add or delete a zone from the group, press
[#] to exit then go to zone bypass as described above.
Press [#] to return to Ready.

To remove a code:
Enter [ ][5][Master Code][code number][
∗
∗∗∗∗]
NOTE: It is recommended that the factory default Master Code [1234] not
be used.
ONE-TIME USE CODE
The One-Time Use code is designed for entry and exit of the premises for one
occasion only. The panel must be programmed by the installer for this option to
be enabled. The 6th access code is the One-Time code.
To use this code, enter your One-Time code as the 6th access code using the
previously described commands. When you leave the premises, arm your
system with any access code except the newly entered One-Time Use code.
This one-time code is given to a person (e.g. a maid) who will enter the premises
while the system is armed and you are away.
The One-Time code user enters the premises and disarms the system using the
one-time access code. Upon leaving, the same code is used to arm the system.
As soon as the system is armed, the one-time code is erased and can not be
used to re-enter the premises. A different code can be provided each time for
the one-time user.

ENTRY DELAY OFF ARMING
∗
ZONE BYPASSING (Continued)
If you wish to arm your system and eliminate the entry delay, enter [ ][9]
before your access code. The “Armed” light will flash as a reminder that the
system is armed and has no entry delay. An entry through any zone
programmed as a delay zone will create an instant alarm.
For security reasons, your installer may prevent the bypass command from
working on certain zones. The “Bypass” light is ON as long as ONE or more
zones are bypassed. Do not unintentionally arm the system with zones
bypassed.
e.g. To arm without entry delay, press [ ][9][access code]
Zone bypasses are automatically cancelled each time the system is disarmed
and must be re-applied before the next arming.
∗
DISARMING THE SYSTEM
Enter the premises only through the door(s) designated by your installer as the
entry door. Entering by any other door will sound an immediate alarm. As soon
as the entry door is opened, the keypad sounder will come on to indicate that
the system should be disarmed. Go to the keypad and enter your four digit
access code. If an error is made entering the code, press the [#] key and enter
your code again. As soon as the correct code is entered, the “Armed” light will
go out and the keypad sounder will silence.
The correct access code must be entered before the entry time expires. The
entry time delay may be changed by your installer. If an alarm occurred during
the period the system was armed, the “Memory” light and the zone light of the
zone that caused the alarm will flash for two minutes. After the two minute
period, the “Memory” light and zone light will stop flashing and the panel will
return to the ready state. Pressing the [#] key during the two minute period will
cancel the alarm memory display.
If a trouble is present when the panel is disarmed, the “Trouble” light will come
ON (See Viewing Trouble Conditions section to determine the source of the
trouble.) Note that troubles will not display while the system is in the Alarm
Memory Display Mode.
If you return home and find that an alarm has occurred while you were away, it
is possible that an intruder may still be on the premises. Go to a neighbour's
house and call the local police to investigate.
VIEWING TROUBLE CONDITIONS
The PC1500/PC1550 continuously monitors a number of possible trouble
conditions. If one of these trouble conditions occur, the keypad will beep twice
every 10 seconds and the keypad “Trouble” indicator will light. Pressing any key
on the keypad will silence the sounder but the “Trouble” light will remain ON until
the trouble condition is cleared. If you cannot determine the cause of the trouble
condition, contact your installer for assistance.
To View Type of Trouble:
Press [ ][2] to display the type of trouble. A zone light will come on to indicate
which type of trouble exists.
∗
Press [#] to return to Ready.

TYPE OF TROUBLE
1 ........... Low or disconnected standby battery.
2 ........... Loss of AC power (Loss of AC power will turn on the
trouble light but keypad sounder will not sound).
3 ........... Fuse open (bell/siren).
4 ........... Failure to communicate with monitoring station.
5 ........... Tamper trouble.
6 ........... Loss of time on the system clock.
QUICK ARM FEATURE
When the Quick-Arm feature is enabled, the system may be armed simply by
pressing [ ][0] instead of the 4 digit access code. This feature allows a person
to arm but not disarm the system.
Enter [ ][6][Master Code][4] to turn the Quick-Arm feature ON and OFF. When
the command is entered, the keypad buzzer will beep 3 times if Quick-Arm is
being enabled and will sound one long beep if it is being disabled.
Press [#] to return to Ready.
∗
∗
DOOR CHIME FEATURE
The door chime feature is used, while the panel is disarmed, to provide a tone
from the keypad each time a door or window is opened or closed. The doors
and windows which will provide this indication are programmed by your installer.
Enter [ ][6][Master Code][6] to turn the door chime feature ON and OFF. When
the command is entered, the keypad buzzer will beep 3 times if the door chime
feature is being enabled, and will sound one long beep if it is being disabled.
Press [#] to return to Ready.

KEYPAD ZONES
There are three keys on the keypad labelled [F] Fire, [A] Auxiliary and [P] Panic.
These keys are only functional if they have been programmed by your installer.
The installer should indicate which of these keys are functional by placing a
coloured label next to the key symbol on the keypad door label.
[F] Fire
Holding this key down for two seconds will sound a Fire Alarm. The alarm will
sound pulsing. The keypad will sound three beeps once the panel has accepted
the alarm. An auxiliary warning device is also activated if your installer has
connected it to your system. To silence the alarm, enter a valid access code.
[A] Auxiliary
Holding this key down for two seconds activates this function if your installer has
programmed it. There is no audible alarm and no lights on the keypad will come
on. When the panel has accepted the alarm, the keypad will sound a series of
beeps. An auxiliary warning device is activated ONLY IF connected to your
system by your installer.
9
[P] Panic
Holding this key down for two seconds causes a steady tone on your siren or
bell if your installer has programmed this key for audible operation. An auxiliary
warning device is also activated if your installer has connected it to your
system. Enter a valid access code to silence the alarm.
The 4 digit Master Code is used to arm and disarm the security system, to
program additional security codes and to change other system features. The
Master Code will be supplied to you by your installer. All keypad entries are
made by pressing one key at a time. (See Additional Codes section)
FIRE ALARM OPERATIONS
ARMING THE SYSTEM
MASTER CODE
Alarm
On a fire alarm, the bell/siren will sound pulsing. The digital communicator
transmission is delayed for 30 seconds. If the alarm is not acknowledged
within the 30 second delay, the communicator will transmit the fire alarm to the
monitoring station.
Bypass light
If the “Bypass” light is ON, insure that zones are intentionally bypassed before
arming the system (See Zone Bypassing section).
Silence
To silence the bell/siren, press the [#] key. If the alarm is silenced and the
smoke detector is not reset, the alarm will resound after 90 seconds.
Trouble light
If the “ Trouble” light is ON, check to see what the trouble condition is and call
for service. (See Viewing Trouble Conditions section).
Reset
To restore the smoke detector(s) to normal, press [ ][7]. If the detector still
has smoke in it, the alarm will resound and the sequence described above will
repeat. If the detector is clear of smoke, the system will return to normal.
NOTE: If you suspect that the communicator has transmitted and there is
no fire condition, call the monitoring station to avoid an
unnecessary response. If a fire condition is apparent, follow your
evacuation plan immediately. If the alarm sounds at night,
evacuate immediately.
Ready light
If the “Ready” light is NOT ON, check to see that all doors and windows are
closed and that motion is stopped in areas covered by motion detectors. The
system cannot be armed unless the “Ready” light is ON indicating that all
zones are closed.
∗
TESTING YOUR SYSTEM
It is recommended that you test your system weekly. Perform system
tests in the off-peak hours, such as early morning or late evening.
1. Inform the monitoring station that you are testing your system.
2. Disarm the system (“Ready” light ON).
3. Perform a bell/battery test by pressing [ ][6][Master Code]. The signal will
sound for about 2 seconds. If a trouble occurs after the test, press [ ][2] to
view the trouble condition.
4. Activate each sensor in turn (e.g. open a door/window or walk in motion
detector areas). Observe the zone light come ON when the zone is
activated. The zone light will go OFF when the system restores to normal
(i.e. door or window closed).
5. If they are programmed for operation, press the [F], [A], and [P] keys in
turn. The [F] key will sound the bell/siren in a pulsed mode. Enter the access
code to silence the alarm. The [A] key is silent. The [P] key may be
programmed as silent or audible. If the alarm sounds, enter the access
code to silence.
6. If the panel has a zone programmed for fire, activation will cause the alarm
signal to sound in a pulsed mode. CAUTION: Do not use an open flame
or burn materials to test a smoke detector. Contact your alarm installer
for information on safe methods to activate a smoke detector.
7. Should the system fail to operate properly, call your alarm dealer for service.
∗
10
∗
Check the following items before arming the system:
NOTE: The system may be armed with a zone bypassed or a trouble present
but your security protection will be reduced.
To Arm
Enter your 4 digit access code. As each digit is entered, the keypad sounder will
beep. If the correct access code is entered, the keypad sounder will beep
quickly and the “Armed” light will come ON.
If the access code was entered incorrectly or the “Ready” light comes ON, the
keypad buzzer will sound steadily for 2 seconds. If this occurs, press the [#] key
and re-enter your access code.
When the correct access code is entered and the “Armed” light comes ON, exit
the premises through the door indicated by your installer as the Exit-Entry door.
At the end of the exit delay period, all lights, except the “Armed” light, will go out
and the system will be armed. The exit time delay can be changed by your
installer.
AUTO-BYPASS OPTION - HOME-AWAY ARMING
This feature, if selected by your installer, will allow you to arm your system with any
valid access code and the system will automatically bypass the interior zones. The
“Bypass” light will come on. If you exit within the allowed exit time, the system will
automatically activate the interior zones and the “Bypass” light will go out. This
feature is designed to save the customer from having to manually bypass interior
zones each time they wish to arm the system and remain at home.
In residential applications where the system has been armed and the interior
zones are automatically bypassed, the interior zones can be reactivated from a
keypad that is outside the interior zone's protection area. To reactivate the interior
zones, press [ ] then [1] and the “Bypass” light will go out.

ABOUT YOUR SECURITY SYSTEM
Your DSC security equipment has been designed to give the greatest possible
flexibility and convenience. Read this manual carefully and have your installer
instruct you on system operation and on which features have been implemented
in your system. All users of this system should be equally instructed in its use.
Fill out the System Information page and store this manual in a safe place for
future reference.
8. When testing is complete, call and advise the monitoring station.
MAINTENANCE
With normal use, the system requires minimum maintenance. The following
points should be observed.
1. Do not wash the keypad with a wet cloth. Light dusting with a barely damp
cloth should remove normal accumulations of dust.
Fire Detection
This equipment is capable of monitoring fire detection devices such as smoke
detectors and providing a warning if a fire condition is detected. Good fire
detection depends on having adequate number of detectors placed in appropriate
locations. This equipment should be installed in accordance with applicable
standards and codes. Carefully review the Family Escape Planning guidelines in
this manual.
2. The battery/bell test is designed to determine battery condition, however it is
recommended that the standby battery be replaced every three years.
NOTE: Your installer must enable the fire detection portion of this
equipment before it becomes functional.
Most fires occur in the home and to minimize this danger it is recommended
that a household fire safety audit be conducted and a family escape plan be
developed.
Testing
To insure that your system continues to function as intended, it is important that you
test your system weekly. See the testing procedure elsewhere in this manual. If
your system does not function properly, call your installing company for service.
GENERAL SYSTEM OPERATION
Your security system is made up of a DSC PC1500 or PC1550 control panel, one
or more LED615 keypads and various sensors and detectors. The control panel
will be mounted out of the way in a utility closet or in a basement. The metal cabinet
contains the system electronics, fuses and stand-by battery. There is normally no
reason for anyone but the installer or serviceman to have access to the control
panel. The LED615 keypads have an audible indicator (buzzer), a group of zone
and system status lights and command entry keys. The keypad is used to send
commands to the system and to display the current system status. The security
station(s) will be mounted in a convenient location inside the protected premises
close to the entry/exit door(s).
The security system has several zones of area protection and each of these zones
will have one or more sensors connected to it (motion detectors, glassbreak
detectors, door contacts, etc.). When a sensor is in alarm, the zone of alarm will
be indicated on the LED615 (zone lights 1 through 6).
Important Notice
A security system cannot prevent emergencies. It is only
intended to alert you and, if included, a monitoring station, of
an emergency situation. Security systems are generally very
reliable but they may not work under all conditions and they
are not a substitute for prudent security practices or life and
property insurance. Your security system should be installed
and serviced by qualified security professionals who should
instruct you on the level of protection that has been provided
and on system operations.
3. For other system devices such as passive infrared, ultrasonic or microwave
motion detectors, glassbreak detectors or smoke detectors, consult the
respective manufacturer’s literature for testing and maintenance.
FIRE SAFETY IN THE HOME
HOUSEHOLD FIRE SAFETY AUDIT
1. Are all electrical appliances and outlets in a safe condition? Check for frayed
cords, over-loaded lighting circuits, etc. If you are uncertain about the
condition of your electrical appliances or household service, have a
professional evaluation.
2. Are all flammable liquids stored safely in closed containers in a well ventilated
cool area? Cleaning with flammable liquids should be avoided.
3. Are fire hazardous materials (matches) well out of reach of children?
4. Are furnaces and wood burning appliances properly installed, clean and in
good working order? Have a professional evaluation.
FAMILY ESCAPE PLANNING
There is often very little time between the detection of a fire and the time it
becomes deadly. It is thus very important that a family escape plan be
developed and rehearsed.
1. Every family member should participate in developing the escape plan.
2. Study the possible escape routes from each location within the house and
since many fires occur at night, special attention should be given to the
escape routes from sleeping quarters.
3. It is essential that escape from a bedroom be possible without opening the
interior door. Consider the following when making your escape plans:
• Make sure that doors and windows that open to the outside are easily
opened. Ensure that they are not painted shut, and that their locking
mechanisms operate smoothly.
• If opening the exit or using the exit is too difficult for children, the elderly or
handicapped, plans for rescue should be developed. This includes making
sure that those who are to perform the rescue can promptly hear the fire
warning signal.
11
2
• If the exit is above the ground level, an approved fire ladder or rope
should be provided as well as training in its use.
• Exits on the ground level should be kept clear. Be sure to remove snow from
exterior patio doors in winter; outdoor furniture or equipment should not block
exits.
• The family should have a predetermined assembly point where everyone can
be accounted for; for example, across the street or at a neighbour’s house.
• Once everyone is out of the house, call the Fire Department.
• A good plan emphasizes quick escape. Do not investigate first or attempt to
fight the fire, and do not attempt to rescue belongings or pets as this takes
up valuable time. Once outside, do not re-enter the house. Wait for the fire
department.
• Write the plan down and rehearse frequently, so that should an emergency
arise, everyone will know what they are to do. Revise the plan as conditions
change; for example, when there are more or fewer family members in the
home, or if there are changes to the house.
• Make sure your fire warning system is operational by conducting weekly tests
as noted elsewhere in this manual. If you are unsure about system operation,
contact your installing dealer.
• It is recommended that you contact your local fire department and request
further information on home fire safety and escape planning. If available, have
your local fire prevention officer conduct an in-house fire safety inspection.
