THIS MANUAL IS PROVIDED TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND YOUR SECURITY SYSTEM
AND BECOME PROFICIENT IN ITS OPERATION. ALL USERS OF YOUR SECURITY
SYSTEM SHOULD READ AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS AND PRECAUTIONS IN
THIS BOOKLET. FAILURE TO DO SO COULD RESULT IN THE SECURITY SYSTEM NOT
WORKING PROPERLY. THIS BOOKLET SHOULD BE KEPT IN AN ACCESSIBLE
LOCATION FOR THE LIFE OF THE SECURITY SYSTEM. IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND
ANY PART OF THIS MANUAL YOU SHOULD NOTIFY YOUR INSTALLING COMPANY.
The SECURITY CONTROL can be turned on (ARMED) and off (DISARMED) by entering a
4 or 6 digit code into the Code Pad Control, which is similar to a telephone Code Pad. If your Security Control has been so programmed, you may be able to turn on (ARM) your
System by simply pressing the [ON] or [PARTIAL] key. The system should always be disarmed using a 4 or 6 digit code. The LED Code Pad includes up to 35 lights and a built-in electronic sounder. These provide specific information relating to the status of the security system which is described in the booklet. Understanding what the lights and sounds mean will help you to easily operate your system.
READ THE ENTIRE MANUAL AND, IF POSSIBLE, PRACTICE ON THE CODE PAD
CONTROL WHILE YOUR PROFESSIONAL INSTALLER IS ON SITE. KEEP IN MIND, THE
LEVEL OF SECURITY YOU WILL OBTAIN WITH THIS SYSTEM RELATES
SPECIFICALLY TO THE FOLLOWING MAJOR FACTORS:
1. The quantity, quality, and placement of security devices attached to this system.
2. The knowledge you have of the security system and how that knowledge is utilized in a weekly test of the complete system.
YOU SHOULD BE AWARE OF THE FOLLOWING FACTS WHEN PREPARING A
SAFETY/SECURITY PLAN FOR YOUR HOME/BUSINESS.
1. Your security system is an electronic device and is subject to failure or malfunction. Do not rely on it as your single source of security.
2. Your system should be tested weekly.
3. Your system will not work without power.
4. Warning devices will need to be loud enough, wired correctly, and properly placed to provide notification of an alarm event.
5. Smoke and heat detectors may not detect heat and smoke in all situations.
6. Use qualified security professionals to install and maintain your security system.
7. It may be possible to arm the security system without the backup battery connected. Your periodic test should be done with A.C. Power removed to verify the battery is connected and adequately charged.
8. Care should be taken to plug in and restrain the A.C. Transformer after testing.

EMERGENCY ACTIVATION KEYS
NOTE: You must hold these keys for 2 seconds to activate these functions.
Your system may not be programmed for these activations.
Fire Key - If programmed, you can activate the Fire alarm by pressing the
Emergency Activation [Fire] key for two seconds. If your system is connected to a monitoring center, an emergency report could be sent to that center. This key should only be pressed in an emergency situation requiring response by fire department personnel.
Auxiliary Key - If programmed, you can activate the auxiliary alarm by pressing the Emergency Activation [Auxiliary] key for two seconds. If your system is connected to a monitoring center, an emergency report could be sent to that center. This key should only be pressed in an emergency situation requiring response by emergency personnel.
Police (Panic/Hold-Up) Key - If programmed, when the Emergency Activation
[Police] key is pressed for two seconds, a local audible alarm will sound. If your system is connected to a monitoring center, an emergency report could be transmitted to that center. These keys should only be pressed in an emergency situation requiring immediate response by law enforcement personnel.
EMERGENCY EVACUATION PLAN
An emergency evacuation plan should be established for an actual fire alarm condition. For example, the following steps are recommended by the National
Fire Protection Association and can be used as a guide in establishing an evacuation plan for your building.
Draw up a floor plan of your home. Show windows, doors, stairs, and rooftops that can be used for escape. Indicate each occupant's escape routes. Always keep these routes free from obstruction. Determine two means of escape from each room. One will be the normal exit from the building. The other may be a window that opens easily.
An escape ladder may have to be located near the window if there is a long drop to the ground below. Set a meeting place outdoors for a headcount of the building occupants. Practice escape procedures. In a home, sleep with bedroom door closed; this will increase your escape time. If you suspect fire, test the door for heat.
If you think it is safe, brace your shoulder against the door and open it cautiously.
Be ready to slam the door if smoke or heat rush in. Practice escaping to the outdoors and meeting in an assigned spot. Call the Fire Department from a neighbour's phone. Early warning fire detection is best achieved by the installation of fire detection equipment in all rooms.
