time allowing you to contact our service department. Should the battery
power become low, the Power LED flashes.
Special Fire Command Tones
Your keypad also contains a small speaker that allows it to alert you to
events as they occur on your system. Below are brief descriptions of the
different tones you'll hear from the keypad:
Key press tone: A short beep when you press a key on the keypad.
Trouble tone: A steady tone indicating a trouble condition on your
system. Enter the user code to silence the trouble tone.
Fire Alarm Tone: Your keypad may sound a siren-like tone in one
second intervals. This is in addition to other bells or sirens you may have.
Understanding Fire System Terms
A zone refers to a group of one or more protection devices. For example,
smoke detectors on the east side of the premises can be grouped
together as the zone EAST SMOKES.
Central Station Monitoring
Your system can also be programmed to send alarm and trouble reports
to a central station where operators can dispatch the appropriate
Status List
Status is a feature that automatically displays the status of your system
on the keypads. The Status List displays alarm or trouble conditions on
zones and trouble conditions that occur with AC or battery power or the
phone lines. If more than one alarm or trouble condition occurs at the
same time, the keypad sequences this information on its display.
Silencing the Bells During an Alarm
While the alarm bell or siren is sounding, enter the user code. The
keypad displays ALARM SILENCED.
Special Fire Command Messages

Auto Recall Event Displays
Your system sends periodic recall (test) reports to the central station to
test the communications link. Each successful test transmission is
logged into the Display Events and shown as AUTO RECALL.
Emergency Evacuation Plans
The National Fire Protection Association recommends you establish an
emergency evacuation plan to safeguard lives in the event of a fire or
other emergency. Use the following steps as a guide.
Draw a floorplan of your home or business
On a sheet of paper, draw the walls, windows, doors, and stairs. Also
draw any obstacles a person may encounter exiting the building.
Develop escape routes
Determine at least two routes occupants in each room can take to safely
escape. One route can be the most obvious such as the door. Another
can be through a window that can be easily opened.
Draw arrows on the floorplan to show escape routes from each room.
There are two event types recorded by the system:
Decide where to meet
Zone Events - Records zone alarms, troubles, and restorals.
Prearrange a meeting place at a neighbor's house or across the street
in the front of the house. Always perform a head count to make sure all
occupants safely exited. NEVER ENTER A BURNING BUILDING. If the
head count shows a person missing, give this information immediately
to the authorities. Never enter a burning building to look for someone.
Supervisory - Records problems with the system’s hardware components.
The system’s memory can hold up to 16 events. Once these events are
stored, any new event causes the oldest event to be cleared.
1. Access the User Menu.
Practice your escape plans
2. Press COMMAND until DISPLAY EVENTS? displays. Press any
Devising an escape plan is only the beginning, before the plan can be
effective everyone should practice the escape routes from each room.
