1.0 Introduction
Thank you for selecting the Spectra security system from
Paradox Security Systems. The Spectra security system
will give you peace of mind by providing reliable security
protection. The Spectra system can realize your dreams of
home automation such as controlling garage doors, lights,
heating, temperature and much more. Consult your
installer to take full advantage of your Spectra system’s
capabilities.
This advanced technology security system provides you
with reliable security protection and powerful features that
anyone can use without memorizing complex and
confusing codes. The system consists of the Spectra
control panel, one or more Spectra keypads, various input
devices (i.e. motion detectors, door contacts, etc.) and
various output devices (i.e. bells, sirens, lights, etc.).
The elegant and user-friendly Spectra 1686H and 1686V
LED keypads allow you to easily access your security
system's functions and provide you with an easy-tounderstand display of your security system's alarm and
operational status. All the actions performed in your
security system will be executed and displayed through the
keypad. Therefore, before using your security system, we
highly recommend you read this manual carefully and have
your installer explain basic system operation to you.

2.0 Basic Operation
Both the Spectra 1686H and 1686V LED keypads function
and display information in the same way. The following
sections provide you with an introduction to the buttons
and indicator lights on your keypad.
Many of the features in your system must be
enabled by the installer. If the feature is not
programmed, the keypad will emit a rejection beep
and the action will be cancelled. Refer to System
Checklist on page 30 for details.
2.1 Auditory Feedback
When you enter information on the keypad, it will guide you
with beep tones that communicate acceptance or rejection
of your entries. You should be familiar with these two
keypad beep tones:
Confirmation Beep: When an operation (i.e. arming/
disarming) is successfully entered on the keypad or when
the system switches to a new status/mode, the keypad
produces an intermittent beep tone (“BEEP-BEEP-BEEPBEEP”).
Rejection Beep: When the system reverts to its previous
status or when an operation is incorrectly entered on the
keypad, it will emit a continuous beep tone (“BEEEEEEEEP”).

2.2 Keypad Indicator Lights
All Spectra LED keypads include coloured lights which
convey the current status of your system. As explained in
Figure 1 on page 3, the state of each light represents a
specific condition in your system.
2.3 Zone Display
The numerical buttons on the 1686V/H keypads are
designed to communicate the status of the zones in your
system. Each button corresponds to a zone in your system.
If a button’s light is OFF (extinguished), the corresponding
zone is closed. If a button’s light is ON (illuminated), the
corresponding zone is open (i.e. open door, movement
detected, etc.).
2.4 Alarm Memory Display
If an alarm has occurred on a zone, the [MEM] button will
illuminate. All zones where alarms occurred will be stored
in memory. After disarming the system, press the [MEM]
button to illuminate the buttons corresponding to the zones
that were in alarm (see Zone Display on page 4). To exit
the Alarm Memory Display, press the [CLEAR] button. The
system will erase the contents of the Alarm Memory every
time the system is armed.
2.5 Trouble Display
Your alarm system continuously monitors fourteen possible
trouble conditions. Most of these trouble conditions can be
reported directly to your monitoring station. When a trouble
condition occurs, [TBL] will illuminate.

2.6 Partitioning
Your Spectra system is equipped with a partitioning feature
which can divide your alarm system into two distinct areas
identified as Partition 1 and Partition 2. Partitioning can be
used in installations where shared security systems are
more practical, such as a home office or warehouse
building. When partitioned, each zone, each user code and
many of your system's features can be assigned to either
Partition 1, Partition 2, or both partitions.
If the system is not partitioned, all zones, user
codes, and features will be recognized as
belonging to Partition 1.
Spectra LED Keypads 9
1686_EU08.fm Page 10 Wednesday, September 29, 2004 2:29 PM
3.0 Programming Access Codes
Access codes are personal identification numbers that
allow you to enter certain programming modes, arm or
disarm your system as well as activate or deactivate PGMs
(see PGM Button (Programmable Outputs) on page 23).
The Spectra security system supports the following:
• 1 System Master Code
• 2 Master Codes
• 45 User Access Codes (including 1 Duress code)
For information on how each access code can arm or
disarm the system refer to the System Checklist on
page 30.
3.1 System Master Code (Default: 123456)
The System Master Code can arm or disarm any partition
using any of the methods described in this section and can
create, modify or delete any user access code (see
Programming Access Codes on page 11).
Do not delete the System Master Code in
section [001]. If you do, the System Master Code
will be lost, you will not be able to re-program it
and your system will have to be serviced by a
technician.
3.2 Master Codes
Master Code 1 is permanently assigned to Partition 1 and
can be used to create, modify or delete user access codes
(see page 11) that are assigned to Partition 1.
10 User’s Guide
1686_EU08.fm Page 11 Wednesday, September 29, 2004 2:29 PM
Master Code 2 is permanently assigned to Partition 2
(except when partitioning is disabled, Master Code 2 will be
assigned to Partition 1) and can be used to create, modify
or delete user access codes (see page 11) that are
assigned to the same partition.
Master Codes cannot modify or delete user access
codes assigned to both partitions. Only the System
Master Code can modify or delete user access
codes assigned to both partitions.
3.3 Duress Code
If you are forced to arm or disarm your system, entering the
Access Code assigned to User 048 will arm or disarm the
system and immediately transmit a silent alert (Duress
Code) to the monitoring station.
The Duress Code feature must be enabled by your
installer.
3.4 Programming Access Codes
Your system can use either 4- or 6-digit access codes (see
page 31), where each digit can be any value from 0 to 9.
Six-digit codes are considered more difficult to “crack” and
therefore, more secure. Avoid programming simple or
obvious access codes, such as your telephone number,
address or codes such as 1234.

4.0 Arming & Disarming
Take full advantage of your Spectra system by familiarizing
yourself with all the arming methods.
If your system is not partitioned (see page 9), the
system considers everything as belonging to
Partition 1
4.1 Exit Delay
After entering a valid arming sequence, an Exit Delay
Timer will provide you with enough time to exit the
protected area before the system arms. The READY light will
flash during the Exit Delay and the keypad may beep.
During the final 10 seconds, the beeping and the light will
accelerate.
4.2 Disarming & Deactivating an Alarm
To disarm an armed system or a system in alarm, enter
your access code. An entry point (i.e. front door) will be
programmed with one of two Entry Delay Timers. When an
entry point is opened, your alarm system will not generate
an alarm until this timer elapses. Any user can disarm a
partition that they have been assigned to, except users
assigned with the Arm Only Option. To disarm alarms
generated by a Delayed Fire Zone, please refer to page 26.
.
How do I deactivate an alarm?

4.5 Force Arming
Force arming allows you to rapidly arm the system without
waiting for all zones in the system to close. During Force
arming, a Force zone is considered “deactivated” until it
closes, after which the system will arm that zone. Force
arming is commonly used when a motion detector is
protecting the area occupied by a keypad. For example,
when arming the system from within a Force zone, the
system will allow you to arm even if the zone is open, and
the system will arm the zone once it closes.

5.3 Panic Alarms
In case of an emergency, the Spectra system provides three
panic alarms that can immediately generate an alarm after
22 User’s Guide
1686_EU08.fm Page 23 Wednesday, September 29, 2004 2:29 PM
simultaneously pressing and holding two specific buttons for
two seconds. Based on your needs, these panic alarms can
generate audible alarms (sirens or bells) or silent alarms,
both of which can send a message to your monitoring
station. The three different panic alarms can communicate
specific messages to your monitoring station. For instance,
pressing [1] & [3] can mean “call the police” or anything you
require. Your installer must enable this feature.
1) Press & hold buttons [1] and [3] for the police.
2) Press & hold buttons [4] and [6] for a medical alarm.
3) Press & hold buttons [7] and [9] for a fire alarm.
5.4 Programming the Clock
How do I program the System Clock?
1) Press the [ENTER] button.
2) Enter [MASTER CODE].
[ENTER] button flashes.
3) Enter [100] (see Appendix A on page 35).
4) Enter the desired [TIME].
Example: 6:15 p.m. = 18:15
5.5 PGM Button (Programmable Outputs)
Your Spectra system may include one or more
programmable outputs (PGMs). When a specific event or
condition occurs in the system, the PGM can be used to
reset smoke detectors, activate light switches in your home
or office, open/close garage doors and much more. A PGM
can also be programmed to activate whenever the [PG]
button is pressed and held for 3 seconds.

6.0 Fire Alarms
In the event of a fire alarm, the bell/siren will emit three
“squawks” at 2-second intervals until silenced or reset by
entering a valid access code. If the zone is a Delayed Fire
Zone, there will be a delay before the system contacts the
monitoring station. This will prevent unnecessary reporting
of false alarms. If there is no fire condition, contact your
monitoring station immediately to avoid an unnecessary
response.
What do I do if a Delayed Fire Zone was set off
accidentally?
1) Press the [CLEAR] button within 30 seconds of the
alarm.
2) Try to correct the problem.
3) If the problem persists, the alarm will sound again. Press
[CLEAR] again.
These steps will instruct the system to delay reporting the fire
alarm to the monitoring station (see Figure 2 on page 27 for
details).

Minimizing Fire Hazards
The three most common causes of fires:
• Cooking is the leading cause of home fires in the U.S.
It's also the leading cause of fire injuries. Cooking fires
often result from unattended cooking and human error,
Spectra LED Keypads 27
1686_EU08.fm Page 28 Wednesday, September 29, 2004 2:29 PM
rather than mechanical failure of stoves or ovens.
• Careless smoking is the leading cause of fire deaths.
Smoke detectors and smolder-resistant bedding and
upholstered furniture are significant fire deterrents.
• Heating is the second leading cause of residential fires.
However, heating fires are a larger problem in single
family homes than in apartments since the heating
systems in single family homes are often not
professionally maintained.
Fire Safety Tips
• In the event of a fire, escape first, then call for help.
Develop a home fire escape plan and designate a
meeting place outside. Make sure everyone in the family
knows two ways to escape from every room. Practice
feeling your way out with your eyes closed. Never stand
up in a fire, always crawl low under the smoke and try to
keep your mouth covered. Never return to a burning
building for any reason—it may cost you your life.
• Finally, having at least one working smoke alarm
dramatically increases your chances of surviving a fire.
And remember to practice a home escape plan
frequently with your family.
Providing a Fire Warning System
Household fires are especially dangerous at night. Fires
produce smoke and deadly gases that can overcome
occupants while they sleep. To warn against fire, smoke
detectors should be installed outside each separate
sleeping area in the immediate vicinity of the bedrooms
and on each additional story of the family living unit,
including basements.

1686_EU08.fm Page 29 Wednesday, September 29, 2004 2:29 PM
7.0 Testing & Maintenance
With the system disarmed and the READY light ON, activate
motion detectors by walking in the protected area. Open
and close protected doors and verify that the
corresponding button illuminates. Your installer can advise
you of the best way to test your particular system.
Do not use open flame or burning materials to test your fire
detection devices. Contact your installer for safe methods
of testing your system.
Under normal use, your system requires virtually no
maintenance other than regular testing. It is recommended
that the standby battery be changed every three years.
Speak to your installer about the necessary tests and at
what frequency they should be performed.
