Useful Hints For PowerMaxComplete Users
Stopping an alarm: When the alarm sounds press the DISARM ( ) button on your key-ring
transmitter or press
on the keypad and then
enter your access code (1 1 1 1 by default).
Stopping trouble beeps: When trouble occurs in
the system, the TROUBLE indicator on the front panel
will light, and a sequence of 3 beeps will sound once
per minute. If you do not wish to eliminate the trouble
immediately and the beeps are bothersome, press the
DISARM ( ) button on your key-ring transmitter, or
press
on the keypad and then enter your
access code (1 1 1 1 by default). This will silence the
buzzer for 4 hours, after which the trouble beeps will
resume sounding. Be advised, however, that in any
case the trouble beeps are silenced during night
hours.
Perimeter and interior zones versus 24-hour
zones: Most of the protection sensors in your system
are linked to perimeter and interior zones. These
zones trigger alarms while the system is in the armed
state and do not trigger alarms while the system is in
the disarmed state. Other sensors are linked to 24hour zones which trigger alarms irrespective of
arming/disarming.
Arming while perimeter zones are not
secured (doors and/or windows are open):
Your display will read “NOT READY” if a protected
door or window is open. You can find out which zone
is “not ready” by clicking the
button. You
can eliminate the problem by closing the door/window
or by performing "Forced arming" (zone deactivation)
if this option was enabled by the system installer. In
case you intentionally choose to bypass a zone, leave
the door or window open and arm the system (a voice
message will announce that ”Forced Arming” is under
way - not applicable in PowerMaxComplete that does
not have VOICE option).
Bypassed zones will not be protected during one
arming period.
D-303984 PowerMaxComplete User's Guide
Gaining access to 24-hour zones: If you wish
to access a sensor defined as a 24-hour zone without
causing an alarm:

Click
- the display will read:
NORMAL MODE / WALK TEST.

Click
again - the display will read:
USER SETTINGS.

Click
- the display will read: ENTER
CODE ___.
Key your secret 4-digit <User Code> - the buzzer will
play the “happy tune” (- - - ––––).
You have 4 minutes during which the 24-hour sensor
can be opened and accessed. When the 4 minutes
are up, the system will automatically revert to the
normal mode.
Canceling accidental alarms: Upon alarm, the
internal sounder is activated first for a limited period of
time (set by the installer). Then the external siren
starts and the event is reported to the central
monitoring station. If you accidentally cause an alarm,
you may simply disarm the system before the external
siren starts - the alarm will not be reported.
If you cause an alarm accidentally and the external
siren has already started - you can still disarm the
system within a time limit set by the installer (1 to 15
minutes, as desired). If you manage to disarm on time,
a CANCEL ALARM message will be automatically
sent to the central monitoring station.
Failing to exit before the exit delay expires:
If you exit the protected site after the exit delay expires
(the exit delay beeps stop), the system will interpret
this as if you just entered. The entry delay countdown
will begin and the entry delay beeps will sound. To
prevent an alarm, you must disarm the system before
the entry delay expires.
Unauthorized entry took place while you
were away: If you hear alarm sirens when you are
about to re-enter the premises, and lights which
should be off are on - an intruder may still be inside or
another event may have occurred. Do not confront the
intruder - remain outside and call the emergency
services.

INTRODUCTION
1. Introduction
Overview
The PowerMaxComplete is a wireless alarm control
system that provides protection against burglary, fire
and tampering. In addition, it can be used to control a
light or an electrical appliance within your household
and/or to monitor the activity of disabled or elderly
people left at home. Status information is presented
visually and verbally, and in most cases a recorded
voice prompts you to take correct action - not
applicable in PowerMaxComplete that does not have
VOICE option.
The PowerMaxComplete includes an optional
partition feature. Partitioning allows you to have up to
three independently controllable areas with different
user codes assigned to each partition. A partition can
be armed or disarmed regardless of the status of the
other partitions within the system.
The PowerMaxComplete is governed by a control
panel (Figure 1) designed to collect data from various
sensors that are strategically located within and along
the perimeter of the protected site (Figure 2).
In the disarmed state, the system provides you with
visual and verbal status information, and initiates an
alarm if smoke is detected or upon disturbance in a
24-hour zone (a zone which is active 24-hours a day).
In the armed state, the system will initiate an alarm
upon detection of disturbance in any one of the
armed zones.
You will need a 4-digit security code to master the
system (code 0000 is disallowed), and you can
authorize 7 other persons to use the system by
providing them with their own security codes.
Moreover, you can obtain up to 8 multi-function keyring transmitters and proximity tags that will allow
you and other users to easily control major functions.
4
Proximity tags enable authorized people to enter
restricted areas. Presenting valid proximity tag, while
the system is armed (and when partitioning is set to
disabled), causes the system to disarm. Presenting
valid proximity tag, while the system is disarmed,
causes the system to be armed in AWAY (optional
HOME) mode.
The system identifies a wide range of events alarms, attempts to tamper with sensors and several
types of trouble. Events are automatically reported
via the public telephone network, GSM network (in
digital form), or GPRS network to central monitoring
stations and to private telephones (in plain language
and/or SMS messages). The person receiving such a
message is expected to investigate the event and act
accordingly.

INTRODUCTION






Note: Remote operation is performed per partition,
or per user code defined for a particular partition,
when partition is enabled.
Numerical keys serve as function keys: In the
disarmed state, numerical keys are used to control
various system functions. A simple icon on each
key identifies the task of that key.
PGM remote control: Gate control mechanisms,
courtesy lights and various other devices can be
switched on and off via a special PGM
(programmable) output. Your installer will determine
the control means, in accordance with your needs.
Note for PowerMaxComplete with Partition
feature: The PGM outputs operate on the entire
alarm system and not per partition, when partition
is enabled.
Data retrieval: You can obtain status information,
trouble information and review memorized alarm
events - visually and verbally.
Looking after elderly, physically handicapped
and infirm individuals: The system can be
programmed to monitor activity within the protected
area and send out an alert message if the person
under surveillance remains still for too long.
Distress calls: Miniature pushbutton transmitters
dealt out to specific individuals may be used for
sending emergency calls for help.
Disarming under duress: If a user is forcibly
compelled to disarm the system, he can use a
special code that disarms the system apparently as
usual, but sends a silent alarm to the central station
(see chapter 2).
 System supervision: All wireless detectors and
wireless commanders within the protected site send
periodic supervision messages. If such a message
is overdue, the PowerMaxComplete displays an
‘inactivity’ trouble message. Your installer can
disable this feature if so desired.
 Battery supervision: You do not have to worry
about ‘dead’ batteries. The PowerMaxComplete
displays a ‘Low Battery’ message whenever a
battery in a wireless device is found to be near the
end of its useful life.
Terms of the Trade
Better understanding of your system is assured if you
take time to read the definitions in APPENDIX B at
the end of this manual. However, if this is not your
first alarm system, then simply read on.

Multi-Function Transmitter
Your system responds to signals sent by a 4-button
(MCT- 234) or a 6-button two-way (MCT- 237)
‘keyfob’ transmitter, or by a two-way wireless keypad
(MKP-150/151) or keyprox (MKP-160) - see figure 4.
The MCT-234 keyfob transmitter is used to control
single or multiple predefined partition(s) only. The
MCT-237 keyfob transmitter and the two-way
wireless keypad can control a single or any
combination up to 3 partitions.

Pressing AWAY twice within 2 seconds initiates
Latchkey arming, if enabled by the installer. The
devices can be used for:
A. Controlling a gate or another electrical
device: Pressing the AUX button opens/closes
an electrically-controlled gate, or controls a
chosen electrical device.
B. Arming the system in the INSTANT mode
(without an entry delay): Pressing the AUX
button immediately after arming, during exit
delay, causes the system to be armed without
an entry delay. This means that entering the
protected premises via any zone will trigger an
immediate alarm. You and other holders of
keyfob transmitters will have no problem,
because you can disarm the system before
D-303984 PowerMaxComplete User's Guide
entering by pressing the DISARM (

) button on
C. Getting status information (Voice version only):
Upon pressing the AUX button on your transmitter,
the voice module announces the system status
over the loudspeaker - not applicable in
PowerMaxComplete that does not have VOICE
option. When partition is enabled, the control
panel announces the status of the partition to
which the keyfob is enrolled.
D. Skip Exit Delay: Pressing the AUX button will
immediately cause the system to arm "instant".
Disarming by a keyfob whose battery voltage is
low (if enabled by the installer)
If you try to disarm the system with a keyfob whose
battery voltage is low, a protest beep will be heard for
15 seconds. During this period you should press again
the disarm button of the keyfob or control panel (for
the control panel, user code is required) to disarm the
system. If you perform this action during the 15
seconds period, the Low Bat message will be stored in
the event log.
If the disarm button is not pressed again during the 15
seconds period, perform either of the following actions:
A. Press AWAY twice to arm the system, otherwise
the system will not be armed and an
acknowledgement (from the user that he knows
about the Low Bat) will not be stored in the event
log.
B. Press AWAY and then press disarm button, to
acknowledge, otherwise the acknowledgement
will not be stored in the event log.
Voice Announcements
(Not applicable in PowerMaxComplete that does not
have VOICE option).
The pre-recorded voice announcements respond to
your commands by announcing what the system is
doing and by prompting you to perform certain
actions. They also announce alarms, troubles and
identify the source of each event.
The sounds you will hear while using the control panel
are:
Single beep, heard whenever a key is
pressed
Double beep, indicates automatic return to
the normal operating mode (by timeout).
Three beeps, indicates a trouble event


Happy Tune (- - - –––), indicates
successful completion of an operation.
Sad Tune (–––––), indicates a wrong
move or rejection

INTRODUCTION
Proximity Tags
Screen Saver Option
When Partition is Disabled
Your system responds to valid proximity tags
enrolled to the system. The proximity tag enables
you to perform a variety of functions without entering
user code, for example, arming, disarming, reading
the event log, etc. Whenever the user code is
required, you can simply present a valid proximity tag
and perform the desired operation without the need
to key-in your user code.
When Partition is Enabled
When the system is disarmed, after presenting a
valid proximity tag to the control panel, the message
"<OK> for AWAY" is displayed. Now you can press
the
button to immediately arm the control
panel, or wait for 3 second for system automatic
AWAY arming (the message "Please exit now" will
be displayed). Presenting the proximity tag once
again will DISARM the system.
Instead of pressing the
button (see
above), you can press the
button once /
twice (the message "<OK> for HOME" / "<OK> for
disarm" is displayed, accordingly) and then press the
press
button for HOME arming /
disarming.
The control panel transmits an RF signal. A valid
proximity tag that is presented to the control panel
transmits a coded RF signal back to the control unit.
The Screen Saver option (if enabled by the installer)
causes that when no key is pressed during more
than 30 seconds, the display is “PowerMax” and the
LEDs do not light (to prevent an intruder to know the
system status). The normal display returns after
8
pressing the
button followed by entering user
code (Refresh by Code) or after pressing any key
(Refresh by Key), as selected by the installer.
If Refresh by Key was selected, the first pressing of
any key (except Fire and Emergency) causes normal
display return and the second press performs the key
function. Regarding the Fire and Emergency keys,
the first key press causes normal display return and
also performs the Fire/Emergency function.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Partitioning refers only to
purchased control panels that support the partitioning
feature.
Access to any desired partition is achieved through
the use of an individual code or proximity tag. It is not
possible to access the INSTALLER MENU if one or
more partitions are in the AWAY or HOME modes.
Before attempting to perform any operation on any
given partition(s), it is necessary to perform the
operations below which enable you to select the
desired/allowed partition(s) using the individual code
or proximity tag:
PRESS
RESULTANT DISPLAY
When non partitioned system is not ready for
arming (at least one zone is open) the display reads
NOT READY TRBL (trouble), NOT READY MEM
(memory), NOT READY MSG (message) or NOT
READY BYPASS.
When partitioned system is not ready for arming (at
least one partition zone is open), the display is N.
RDY TRBL (trouble), N. RDY MEM (memory), N.
RDY MSG (message) or N. RDY BYPASS.
If the system is not ready for arming, click
to review the numbers and names of all open zones /
partitions, one by one.
It is highly recommended to fix the open zone(s),
thus restoring the system to the state of “ready to
arm”. If you do not know how to do this, consult your
installer.
IMPORTANT! All arming procedures below are
based on the assumption that quick arming has been
enabled by the installer. If quick arming is disabled,
the PowerMaxComplete will prompt you to enter your
security code before arming.

Forced Arming
Forced arming allows you to arm any system
partition even though one zone or several zones are
disturbed, and the NOT READY message is
displayed.
Automatic forced arming only works if the installer
allowed this option while programming your system.
Disturbed zones will be bypassed - they will not be
armed. The protected site will not have maximum
protection.
Note: When forced arming is carried out, the buzzer
“protests” by emitting a continuous tone during the exit

Arming in the Latchkey Mode
This mode is useful for a parent at work who wants
to be sure that his children have returned from
school and have disarmed the system. Arming in the
“latchkey” mode means that a special “latchkey”
message will be sent out when the system is
disarmed by a “latchkey user”.
Latchkey users are holders of user codes 5 through
8 or users of Keyfob transmitters 5 through 8. The
latchkey message is considered an alert and not an
alarm, and is therefore sent to the private telephones
programmed by the user as targets for alert
messages.
Latchkey arming is possible only when you arm “AWAY”.

READING ALARM MEMORY AND TROUBLE DATA
5. Reading Alarm Memory And Trouble Data
Reviewing Alarm/Tamper Memory
The PowerMaxComplete retains in its memory alarm
and “tamper” events that occurred during the last
arming period.
For PowerMaxComplete that includes partition
option: In order to review alarm and tamper events
of a specific partition, you need to select the desired
partition(s), (please refer to Partition Selection
Process in Chapter 2).
Note: Alarms enter the memory only after expiry of the
“abort period” (see APPENDIX B). This means that if
you disarm the system immediately - before the abort
period expires - there will be no memory indication.
A. Alarm / Tamper Indications
When the memory contains at least one event and
the system is in the disarmed state, a flashing
MEMORY message will be displayed as exemplified:

Remember! The memory indication and content are
cleared upon the next arming of the system.
Reviewing Trouble Information
A. Trouble Indications
If TRBL flashes in the display, the TROUBLE
indicator illuminates, and 3 beeps are sounded once
per minute, you will have to investigate the system in
order to find out the origin and type of trouble.
The LCD will display the device number(s) of the
trouble indication. The trouble types are as follows:
SENSOR / KEYFOB / WIRELESS COMMANDER
TROUBLES
 Inactivity - No radio signals have been received
from a particular sensor / wireless commander (if
its supervision feature has been enabled) during a
pre-defined period.
 Low battery - The battery in a sensor, keyfob or
wireless commander is near the end of its useful life.
 "Clean me" - The fire detector must be cleaned.
 Gas trouble - Gas detector failure.
 Siren AC failure - There is no power to the siren.
GSM TROUBLES (if used)
 GSM line fail - GSM telephone line failure.
 GSM net fail - GSM network failure.
 RSSI low - The GSM received signal strength is low.
 GSM communication fail - There is no
communication
(RS-232
format)
between
PowerMaxComplete and GSM unit.
SYSTEM TROUBLES
SYSTEM TROUBLES indicate the state of the entire
system and not a specific partition.
D-303984 PowerMaxComplete User's Guide
READING ALARM MEMORY AND TROUBLE DATA

AC Supply Failure - There is no power and the
system is working on backup battery power (this
trouble is reported 5 minutes after its occurrence).
 System Jammed - A radio-frequency signal is
blocking communication channel of sensors and
control panel.
 Communication failure - A message could not
be sent to the central monitoring station or to a
private telephone (or a message was sent but
was not acknowledged).
 CPU low battery - The backup battery within
the control panel is weak and must be replaced
(see Chapter 9 - Replacing Backup Battery).
 CPU tamper - The control panel is being
tampered with.
 Fuse Trouble - The siren fuse is burnt out.
 Line Failure – There is a problem with the
telephone line.
IMPORTANT! If the trouble beeps bother you, disarm
the system again (even though it is already disarmed).
This will cancel the trouble beeps for 4 hours.
B. Investigating Trouble Sources
In a state of trouble, a flashing TRBL message is
displayed as shown in the following examples:
READY
HH:MM
(alternating)
READY
TRBL
or, if the system is not ready for arming NOT READY

You can review the current troubles one by one, by
clicking the
button.
EXAMPLE: The kitchen sensor - zone No. 9 - has been
inactive and the living room sensor - zone No. 15 - has
reported a low battery. However, these troubles do not
prevent the system from being “ready to arm”.
To investigate the source of trouble, proceed as follows:

Note (not applicable to PowerMaxComplete that does
not have VOICE feature): When a voice message is in
memory, the MSG display will also appear (as shown
in Chapter 3 - Recording a Message).
To read status information - memory data, open zones
and trouble sources (in this order) - click the
button repeatedly. The memory content
will be displayed first, in the same manner shown in
Chapter 5 - Reviewing Alarm / Tamper Memory. If the
system is not ready, open zone information will follow
in the same manner as shown in Chapter 2 Preparing to Arm. Trouble sources will be displayed
last, in the same manner shown in Chapter 5 Reviewing Trouble Information.
Correcting Trouble Situations
The trouble indications (illuminated TROUBLE
indicator and flashing TRBL message) are cleared
once you eliminate the cause for trouble. If you do
not know how to cope with a trouble situation,
report it to your installer and seek his advice.
INACTIVITY: Once an inactive sensor or wireless
commander renews its periodical transmissions, the
inactivity trouble no longer exists and will no longer
be indicated by the control panel.
LOW BATTERY: Upon replacing the battery in a
wireless device in a keyfob or in a wireless
commander that reported a low battery, the next
transmission made by the relevant sensor will include
a “battery restored” message, and “low battery” will no
longer be indicated by the control panel.
SYSTEM TROUBLE: Correction of any one of the
system troubles is automatically sensed by the
control panel, and the trouble indication is cleared
accordingly.

SPECIAL FUNCTIONS
6. Special Functions
Looking after People Left at Home
An
important
characteristic
of
the
PowerMaxComplete is its ability to function in a
mode contrary to the usual behavior of an alarm
system. When the system is in the disarmed state (or
even when armed “HOME” with perimeter protection
only), it can keep track of in-house activity and will
report lack of motion in interior zones if there is no
detection of motion within predetermined time limits.
To use this characteristic, you must ask your installer
to program a specific time limit beyond which lack of
motion will be reported as a “not active” alert.
To make things clear, let us assume that an elderly,
sick or handicapped person is left unattended in a
protected site. This person, disabled or sick as he
may be, will not stay entirely still for hours. It is only
natural that even while being asleep he will turn over
in his bed from time to time. He might also wander
into the kitchen to eat or drink, or to the bathroom for
other necessities. Upon doing so, the bedroom,
bathroom and kitchen motion detectors will detect his
movement.
If, for example, the “lack of motion” time limit is set by
your installer to 6 hours, a virtual 6-hour clock will
carry out a 6-hour “countdown”.
If motion is detected within the 6-hour time frame, the
countdown will restart from the beginning (the virtual
6-hour clock will be “reset”) and no alert message will
be sent out.
If no motion is detected within the 6-hour time frame
in any interior zone, the control panel will send a
“not-active” alert message to the central monitoring
station or to private telephones designated by the
installer.
IMPORTANT! In addition, you may provide the
person confined to interiors with a single-button
transmitter for distress situations, see next
paragraph.
To make this possible, ask your installer to define
one of the 28 zones of the PowerMaxComplete as an
emergency zone.
Then, obtain one of the transmitters listed below and
link this transmitter’s ID code to the emergency zone.
Compatible distress transmitters are (see Fig. 5):
MCT-201 - pendant-type
MCT-211 - wristwatch-type
MCT-101 - pocket-type

Suppose the disabled person discussed above has
an accident such as falling in the bathtub without
being able to get up. It might take hours before the
“No Active” alert is sent out, but he (or she) must be
assisted much sooner.
Even though the odds for such an accident are not
high, it is advisable to provide the disabled person with
a miniature, single-button pendant-type or wristwatchtype transmitter. Pressing the button on this
transmitter will cause the PowerMaxComplete to send
an “emergency call” to the central monitoring station
or to private telephones designated by the installer.

Remark Regarding Listen-in & Speak-out modes
Listen-in & Speak-out modes allow one way speech at
a time. Back and forth exchange of uninterrupted
speech between two parties is a method normally
used in military, commercial and amateur radio
communication. Once you finish talking you should
say “Go Ahead” or “Over” and then switch from speakout to listen in. When the person at home finishes
talking he should also say “Over”, as a cue to you to
switch back from Listen-in to speak out.
EXAMPLE:
You (at remote telephone):
[1], “Hey, George,
can you hear me? Are you in any trouble? Over”....
[3]
Person at home: “Yes, I am. I had a dizzy spell while
trying to get out of bed and fell on the floor. I am
unable to get up and my thigh hurts. Can you help
me? Over”...
You (at remote telephone):
[1], “Sure, I will
send someone right away, stay put - over”..
[3].
Person at home: “Thanks, please hurry, over”.
You (at remote telephone):
[1], “All right, over
and out”.....
[]9][9] (END OF SESSION).

SPECIAL FUNCTIONS
Important! If you wish to exit the two-way
communication mode and execute another
command, just press [] and then key your user
code followed by the command (see “keying

Reporting to Private Telephone
control
panel
The PowerMaxComplete can be programmed by the
installer for selective transmission of messages to
private telephone subscribers. Messages are divided
by type into 4 groups:
Group Events Reported
1
2
3
Fire (*), Burglary (**), Panic, Tamper
Arming AWAY, Arming HOME, Disarming
No-activity, Emergency (***), Latchkey,
Gas, Flood, Temperature
4
Low-battery AC failure
Note: In control panel with no-voice option, the
following siren signal will be sent to private telephone
upon event reporting:
* FIRE: ON - ON - ON - pause.... (- - - - - - ......).
** BURGLAR: ON continuously (
...)
*** EMERGENCY: 2-tone siren; like an ambulance.
When the called party answers a call initiated by the
PowerMaxComplete, he will hear a verbal message
composed of the “house identity” and the type of
event that occurred. For example, once smoke is
detected in the Smith residence, the message will
be: [The Smith Residence - Fire Alarm].
If a person under surveillance in the Watkins
residence has been inactive, the message will be:
[The Watkins Residence - No Activity].
The called party must acknowledge the message (as
explained later on), but if he does not respond, the
message will be transmitted repeatedly as many
times as possible within a 45-second time limit.
When
the
45
seconds
are
up,
the
PowerMaxComplete will disengage the line and call
the next private telephone number on its list.
The called party can acknowledge the message by
pressing a key on the telephone keypad, as follows.
Command
Acknowledge
only:
The
PowerMaxComplete disengages the
line and considers the event duly
reported.

Conducting a Walk Test
The walk-test is an indispensable operation by which
you verify that all detectors function properly, without
disturbing the neighbors with loud sirens. The test
must be performed at least once a week, and
should include all detectors in all zones.
Before performing walk-test, all the detectors must
be in normal state. Normal state is achieved when no
motion is made for at least 2 minutes.
21
SPECIAL FUNCTIONS
Note: During the test period, 24-hour zones will not
cause an alarm if violated, but a fire zone will
function normally.
A typical test will take place as follows:
A. Click

USER SETTINGS
7. User Settings
What are the Settings You Need?
The installer provides you a ready-to-use alarm
system, but a few settings and adjustments will still
be needed.
Note: Although the user settings are your
responsibility, you may request your installer to
perform them for you (except for the user codes,
which you would like to keep secret).
The user settings include (if enabled by the installer):
 Bypassing zones - determining which zones
will be bypassed (disabled) during the present
disarm period and the next armed period.
 Reviewing the bypass list - "show bypass" displaying the numbers and names of bypassed
zone one by one.
 Recalling the last bypassing scheme** "recall bypass" - re-using the previous bypassing
scheme, which becomes suspended after
disarming but is still saved in the
PowerMaxComplete memory.
Note: RECALL BYPASS is applicable when
partition is disabled.
 Private report* - determining the event groups
to be reported to private telephone subscribers.
Determining the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th telephone
numbers to which the system will report event
messages that were defined by the system
installer. Determining the number of times the
called party's private telephone number is
dialed. Determining whether or not 2-way voice
communication with private telephones will be
allowed. Determining whether to use a single
acknowledge signal, or, an acknowledge signal
from each telephone before the current event is
considered reported. Determining the 1st, 2nd, 3rd
and 4th SMS telephone numbers to which preselected event types will be reported.
 Setting user codes* - programming a security
code for yourself and additional 7 codes for
other system users. Codes 5 through 8 are
“Latchkey” user codes (see Chapter 2 - Arming
in the Latchkey Mode for additional details).
 Enrolling keyfob transmitters* - teaching the
PowerMaxComplete system to recognize the ID
code of each keyfob transmitter (multi-button,
Code-Secure™ type, wireless transmitter), so
that the PowerMaxComplete can respond to
commands transmitted by them.
 Enrolling proximity tags - Teaching the
PowerMaxComplete to recognize the ID of each
proximity tag so that the PowerMaxComplete
can respond to proximity tags presentation.

Bypassing Zones
A. General Guidance
You can program the PowerMaxComplete to exclude
(bypass) selected zones, regardless of whether
these zones are "functional" (undisturbed) or "open"
(disturbed). Bypassing permits free movement of
people within certain zones although the system is
armed. It is also used to temporarily remove from
service faulty zones that require repair work. Fire and
temperature zones can not be bypassed.
Remember – zone bypassing compromises security!
Note: Zones will be bypassed throughout one
disarm-arm period only. Disarming the system after
arming will suspend the entire bypassing scheme,
which can be recalled later, if so desired.
B. Bypassing Procedure
When partition is enabled, you may set the bypass
option according to the type of partition access
permission.

READING THE EVENT LOG
8. Reading The Event Log
Event Log Description
All events are memorized in an event log. You can
access this log, review the events one by one and
draw functional conclusions.
If the event log fills up completely it continues to
accept new events at the expense of old events - the
oldest event is deleted upon registration of each new
event.
The date and time of occurrence are memorized for
each event. When reading the event log, events are
shown in chronological order - from the newest to the
oldest.
Because of the limited display space, the event
description is shown first, then the date and time.
The two displays are shown alternately several
times, until you click
to move on to an
older event, or until the “no action” 4-minute timeout
restores the system to the normal operating mode.
Access to the event log is provided by clicking the
asterisk () key and then keying your master user
code.
Should you wish to get an overall view of using
the log, refer to Figure 9. The flow chart may
even serve as your only guide to using the event
log, instead of going through the written step-bystep procedure.

MAINTENANCE
9. Maintenance
Replacing the Backup Battery
The PowerMaxComplete uses regular electrical
supply, but incorporates backup 9.6V battery pack
(see sticker on battery cover). It is important to
replace it immediately upon receiving the following
trouble message when reviewing system troubles
(see Chapter 5 - Reviewing Trouble Information):
CPU LOW BATTERY
Figure 10. Battery Replacement
Open battery compartment cover. Insert 6-battery
pack or 8-battery pack and connect its connector to
the PowerMaxComplete receptacle.
Note: Dispose of used backup batteries according to
the manufacturer's instructions.
Note: Removal of the cover will start a “tamper” alarm the trouble indicator will light and both “memory” and
“trouble” will flash in the display window. If you
interrogate the system at this stage by clicking the
button, “CPU TAMPER ALARM” and
“CPU TAMPER OPEN” will be displayed, in addition to
“CPU LOW BATTERY”.
34
With correctly inserted fresh batteries and tight
closure of the lid, the TROUBLE indicator should
extinguish. The “MEMORY” message will continue
blinking in the display (caused by the “tamper” alarm
you triggered). Clear it by arming the system and
disarming it as soon as the exit delay starts.
Replacing Wireless Devices
Batteries
The wireless sensors supplied with your system are
powered by high-capacity lithium batteries that last
several years, depending on the number of times the
sensor is triggered into transmission.
However, if and when a battery becomes weak, the
sensor itself sends a “low battery” message to the
control panel, and a low battery trouble message is
displayed together with the zone information (see
Chapter 5 - Reviewing Trouble Information).
The keyfob transmitters used to control the system
are powered by an alkaline battery that lasts about
one year if you do not press a button more than 10
times a day. Battery exhaustion is clearly evident by
flashing of the transmitter’s red indicator while the
button is pressed (instead of lighting steadily).
When a low battery indication appears for the first
time, it may be considered as a pre-warning. It
normally gives you ample time (about 30 days) to
obtain a new battery and replace the old one, and
the detector or keyfob unit will be fully operational
throughout this period. However, to be on the safe
side, it is advisable not to wait that long.
Use the battery specified in the detector’s own
installation instructions. If you do not have the
instructions, seek the advice of your installer or ask
him to replace the battery in the specific device that
sent the low battery message.
The Wireless Commander is powered by a long life
3 V Lithium battery. If the battery is weak when
reading the PowerMaxComplete event log the
display will read, for example, "C01 Low Battery"
(meaning there is a low battery condition in the
wireless commander #01), and the message "remote
commander" will be heard.
For replacing the wireless commander battery, refer
to the MCM-140+ Wireless Commander user guide.
After battery replacement, the detector unit will send
a “battery restored” signal to the control panel, and
the “low battery” message will be cleared.
D-303984 PowerMaxComplete User's Guide
MAINTENANCE
Periodic Testing
Cleaning the Control Panel
The components of your security system are
designed to be maintenance-free as much as
possible. Nevertheless, it is mandatory to perform a
“walk test” at least once a week and after an alarm
event to verify that all system detectors function
properly. Proceed as described in Chapter 6 Conducting a Walk-Test, and If there is any problem,
notify your installer at once.
The control panel may occasionally get stained if
touched with greasy fingers, and may accumulate
dust after a long period of use. Clean it only with a
soft cloth or sponge moistened lightly with a mixture
of water and mild detergent, and then wipe it dry.
The use of abrasives of any kind is strictly
forbidden. Also never use solvents such as
kerosene, acetone or thinner. These will certainly
ruin the external finish and damage the
transparency of the top window.

PERFORMANCE LIMIT
10. Performance Limits
Although the alarm control system you purchased is
highly reliable, it does not guarantee protection from
burglary and fire hazards. Even the most advanced
systems can be defeated or might occasionally fail to
warn. Some of the reasons for this are:
Sloppy maintenance: If the system is used over a
long period of time without testing, a key element
such as a detector or a siren might go wrong without
any visible or audible signs of failure. If a low battery
warning is neglected, there will be no backup power
to keep the system operational during a power
outage.
Power failures: In case of prolonged absence from
the protected site, the mains supply may suddenly
fail (an earth leakage protection relay may trip,
disconnecting the mains supply). After such an
event, the alarm system will draw power from the
backup battery, until all reserve power is exhausted,
leaving the premises without protection.
Telephone line trouble: Telephone lines may be
disconnected or short circuited. With the telephone
line "down", your alarm system will not be able to
report events to the central station.
36
Sirens do not always wake up sound sleepers:
Sirens and bells installed outside or far from
bedrooms are not likely to awaken people who are
sound asleep behind closed doors inside the
protected area or in adjacent buildings.
The system is sometimes defeated: With sufficient
technical know-how, intruders may find a way to
defeat various types of sensor or disconnect warning
devices. Intruders may also take advantage of
unprotected openings and skylights, or even enter
forcibly at unpredictable spots.
Smoke detectors have their limits: In many cases,
smoke detectors fail to warn on time because the fire
started at a different level of the house, or too far
away from the detector.
All this gives sufficient proof that even with a
good alarm system installed, there is still need
for life and property insurance. In addition, users
should test their alarm systems at regular
intervals, to make sure that malfunctions are
detected before a true alarm event occurs.

APPENDICES
APPENDIX A. PARTITIONING
PowerMaxComplete includes an optional partition
feature. Partitioning is available only if your installer
has enabled the feature. Once partitioning is
enabled Partitioning menus are added to the
system which can be viewed on the control panel's
LCD display. Partitioning allows you to divide the
system into three independently controllable areas
with different users assigned to each partition
whereby each user can arm the partition to which
they are assigned.
Each user code can be assigned to a combination
of up to 3 partitions and each partition can be
armed or disarmed regardless of the status of the
other partitions within the system. For example, you
can define the garage as partition 1, the basement
as partition 2, and the house as partition 3. Since
each partition is independent of other partitions,
you can arm or disarm each partition as desired
without altering the states of the other partitions.
PowerMaxComplete also supports a situation
where an area is used by two or more partitions.
For example, a reception area which is common to
two offices, each of which is assigned to a separate
partition, will be armed only after both offices
(partitions) are armed. In the armed state the
reception area will be disarmed after either office
(partitions) has been disarmed to allow the user of
that office to use the reception area without
generating an alarm. Such an area is termed a
"common area".

APPENDICES
Siren
A partition is alarmed when receiving an event from
an alarmed device assigned to that partition.
Alarmed devices do not affect partitions to which
they are not assigned. A siren is common to all
partitions; therefore, an alarm from one or more
partitions will activate the siren.

Siren Activity

The siren will be activated when receiving an
event from an alarmed device.
Overlapping siren activations from different
partitions will not cause the duration of the siren
to be extended.


When the siren sounds, it will not stop until all
alarmed partitions are disarmed. However if the
siren is active due to an alarm from a common
area zone, and one of the partitions assigned to
this area disarms the system, the siren will also
stop. In case that the alarm is initiated from a
common area but continues with zones that are
not assigned to a common area, the siren will
not stop until all partitions assigned to the
alarmed zones are disarmed.
In case that there is a fire in partition 1 and a
burglary in partition 2, the siren will sound FIRE.
When partition 1 is disarmed the siren will
sound BURGLAR for the remainder of the siren
timeout period.

APPENDICES
APPENDIX B. GLOSSARY
This list of terms is arranged in alphabetical order.
Any term indicated by cursive (italic) letters within the
explanatory text can be looked up separately.
Abort Period: When an alarm is initiated, the
internal sounder is activated first for a limited period
of time which is the abort period set by the installer. If
you cause an alarm accidentally, you can disarm the
system within the abort period before the real sirens
start and before the alarm is reported to the remote
responders.
Alarm: There are 2 kinds of alarm:
Loud alarm - both internal and external sirens blare
out constantly and the control panel reports the event
by telephone.
Silent alarm - the sirens remain silent, but the control
panel reports the event by telephone.
A state of alarm is caused by:
 Motion detected by a motion detector
 Change of state detected by a magnetic contact
detector - a closed window or door is opened
 Detection of smoke by a smoke detector
 Tampering with any one of the detectors
 Pressing the two emergency buttons simultaneously
(panic)
Arming: Arming the alarm system is an action that
prepares it to sound an alarm if a zone is “violated”
by motion or by opening a door or window, as the
case may be. The control panel may be armed in
various modes (see AWAY, HOME, INSTANT and
LATCHKEY).
AWAY: This type of arming is used when the
protected site is vacated entirely. All zones, interior
and perimeter alike, are protected.
Chime Zones: Allow you to keep track of activity in
the protected area while the alarm system is in the
disarmed state. Whenever a chime zone is "opened",
the buzzer beeps twice. The buzzer doesn't beep,
however, upon closing the zone (return to normal).
Residences can use this feature to annunciate
visitors or look after children. Businesses can use it
to signal when customers enter the premises or
when personnel enter restricted areas.
Note: Your installer will never designate a 24-hour
zone or a fire zone as a chime zone, because both
zone types actuate an alarm if disturbed while the
system is in the disarmed state.
Although one zone or more are designated as chime
zones, you can still enable or disable the chime
function.
40
Control Panel: The control panel is a cabinet that
incorporates
the
electronic
circuitry
and
microprocessor that control the alarm system. It
collects information from various sensors, processes
it and responds in various ways. It also includes the
user-interface - control keys, numerical keypad,
display, sounder and loudspeaker.
Disarming: The opposite of arming - an action that
restores the control panel to the normal standby
state. In this state, only fire and 24-hour zones will
sound an alarm if violated, but a “panic alarm” may
also be initiated.
Disturbed Zone: A zone in a state of alarm (this
may be caused by an open window or door or by
motion in the field of view of a motion detector). A
disturbed zone is considered “not secured”.
Forced Arming: When any one of the system zones
is disturbed (open), the alarm system cannot be
armed. One way to solve this problem is to find and
eliminate the cause for zone disturbance (closing
doors and windows). Another way to deal with this is
to impose forced arming - automatic de-activation of
zones that are still disturbed upon termination of the
exit delay. Bypassed zones will not be protected
throughout the arming period. Even if restored to
normal (closed), bypassed zones will remain
unprotected until the system is disarmed.
Permission to “force arm” is given or denied by the
installer while programming the system.
HOME: This type of arming is used when people are
present within the protected site. A classic example
is night-time at home, when the family is about to
retire to bed. With HOME arming, perimeter zones
are protected but interior zones are not.
Consequently, motion within interior zones will be
ignored by the control panel, but disturbance of a
perimeter zone will cause an alarm.
Instant: You can arm the system AWAY-INSTANT
or HOME-INSTANT, thereby canceling the entry
delay for all delay zones for the duration of one
arming period.
For example, you may arm the control panel in the
HOME-INSTANT mode and remain within the
protected area. Only perimeter protection is active,
and if you do not expect somebody to drop in while
the system is armed, alarm upon entry via the main
door is an advantage.
To disarm the system without causing an alarm, use
your control keypad (which is normally accessible
without disturbing a perimeter zone) or use a keyfob
transmitter.
D-303984 PowerMaxComplete User's Guide
APPENDICES
Latchkey: The Latchkey mode is a special arming
mode in which designated "latchkey users" will
trigger a "latchkey message" to be sent to a
telephone when they disarm the system.
Note: This applies to latchkey users 5 to 8 only
For example, if a parent wants to be sure that their
child has returned from school and disarmed the
system. Latchkey arming is only possible when the
system is armed in the AWAY mode.
Magnetic Contact Detector, Wireless: A Magnetcontrolled switch and a wireless PowerCode
transmitter in a shared housing. The detector is
mounted on doors and windows to detect changes in
state (from closed to open and vice versa). Upon
sensing that a door or window is open, the detector
transmits its unique identification code accompanied
by an “alarm” signal and various other status signals
to the control panel. The control panel, if not armed
at that time, will consider the alarm system as “not
ready for arming” until it receives a “restored” signal
from the same detector.
Motion Detector, Wireless: A passive Infrared
motion sensor and a wireless PowerCode transmitter
in a shared housing. Upon sensing motion, the
detector transmits its unique identification code,
accompanied by an alarm signal and various other
status signals to the control panel. After transmission,
it stands by to sense further motion.
Non-Alarm Zone: Your installer can designate a
zone for roles other than alarm. For instance, a
motion detector installed in a dark stairway may be
used to switch on lights automatically when someone
crosses the dark area. Another example is a
miniature wireless transmitter linked to a zone that
controls a gate opening mechanism.
Quick Arming: Arming without a user code. The
control panel does not request your user code when
you press one of the arming buttons. Permission to
use this arming method is given or denied by the
installer while programming the system.
D-303984 PowerMaxComplete User's Guide
Remote Responder: A responder can be either a
professional service provider to which the home or
business owner subscribes (a central monitoring
station) or a family relation/friend who agrees to look
after the protected site during absence of its
occupants. The control panel reports events by
telephone to both kinds of responders.
Restore: When a detector reverts from the state of
alarm to the normal standby state, it is said to have
been “restored”.
A motion detector restores automatically after
detection of movement, and becomes ready to detect
again. This kind of “restore” is not reported to the
remote responders.
A magnetic contact detector restores only upon
closure of the protected door or window. This kind of
“restore” is reported to the remote responders.
Smoke Detector, Wireless: A regular smoke detector
and a wireless PowerCode transmitter in a shared
housing. Upon detection of smoke, the detector
transmits its unique identification code accompanied by
an alarm signal and various status signals to the control
panel. Since the smoke detector is linked to a special
fire zone, a fire alarm is initiated.
User Codes: The PowerMaxComplete is designed
to obey your commands, provided that they are
preceded by a valid security access code.
Unauthorized people do not know this code, so any
attempt on their part to disarm or defeat the system
is bound to fail. Some operations, however, can be
carried out without a user code as they do not
degrade the security level of the alarm system.
Zone: A zone is an area within the protected site
under supervision of a specific detector. During
programming, the installer allows the control panel
to learn the detector’s identity code and links it to
the desired zone. Since the zone is distinguished
by number and name, the control panel can report
the zone status to the user and register in its
memory all the events reported by the zone
detector. Instant and delay zones are “on watch”
only when the control panel is armed, and other
(24-hour) zones are “on watch” regardless of
whether the system is armed or not.

APPENDIX C. HOME FIRE ESCAPE PLANNING
Fire can spread rapidly through your home, leaving
you a short time to escape safely. Your ability to get
out depends on advance warning from smoke
detectors and advance planning - a home fire escape
plan that everyone in your family is familiar with and
has practiced.
 Pull together everyone in your household and
make an evacuation plan.
 Draw a floor plan of your home, showing two ways
out of each room, including windows. Don’t forget
to mark the location of every smoke detector.
Test all smoke detectors (by a qualified testing
laboratory) periodically, to ensure to ensure their
serviceability. Replace batteries as required.
 Make sure that everyone understands the
escape plan and recognizes the sound of smoke
alarm. Verify that the escape routes are clear and
that doors and windows can be opened easily.
 If windows or doors in your home have security
bars, make sure that the bars have quick-release
mechanisms on the inside, so that they can be
opened immediately in an emergency case. Quick
release mechanisms won’t compromise your
security, but they will increase your chances of
safely escaping a home fire.
 Practice the escape plan at least twice a year,
making sure that everybody is involved - from
kids to grandparents. Allow children to master fire
escape planning and practice before holding a
fire drill at night when they are sleeping. The
objective is to practice, not to frighten, so telling
children there will be a drill before they go to bed
can be as effective as a surprise drill. If children
or others do not readily waken to the sound of
the smoke alarm, or if there are infants or family
members with mobility limitations, make sure that
someone is assigned to assist them in fire drill
and in the event of an emergency.
42

Agree on an outside meeting place where
everyone can meet after they’ve escaped.
Remember to get out first, and then call for help.
Never go back inside until the fire department
gives the OK.
 Have everyone memorize the emergency phone
number of the fire department. That way any
member of the household can call from a cellular
phone or a neighbor’s home.
 Be fully prepared for a real fire: when a smoke
alarm sounds, get out immediately and once you
are out, stay bout - leave the firefighting to the
professional!
 If you live in an apartment building, make sure that
you are familiar wit the building evacuation plan. In
case of a fire, use the stairs, never the elevator.
Tell guests or visitors to your home about your
family’s fire escape plan. When visiting other
people’s home, ask about their escape plan. If they
don’t have a plan in place, offer to help them make
one. This is especially important when children are
permitted to attend “sleepovers” at friends' homes.
