Getting Started
Your Responder HD remote is powered by an internal rechargeable
battery that can only be serviced by an authorized Directed dealer.
Due to transit and storage time prior to your purchase, the battery
charge may have depleted. To ensure proper operation, check the
battery level and connect the battery charger if not fully charged. See
Battery Information and Status Screen Icons sections for more information about the battery.
Charging the remote control:
1.
2.
3.
Plug the AC adapter into a 110V AC outlet. Insert the mini-USB
connector into the port on the remote control. The Status screen
Info Center then indicates the remote control is charging.
While the Status screen is off, the blue transmit LED will continue
blinking until fully charged (the remote control also remains
functional to command the system or access the Status screen to
check the battery level).
Once fully charged the remote control is ready for use. Disconnect the mini-USB end from the remote control first and then the
AC adapter from the AC outlet.

Port
Note

If the battery is excessively depleted when the charger is
connected, functionality may be delayed while it charges to
the minimum voltage required to operate the display, after
which normal charging resumes.

Alarm Features
Normal Arm Protection
Status LED: The Control Center Status LED flashes as a visual indicator
that your vehicle’s security system is active.
Starter Kill: The Failsafe starter kill relay prevents the engine from
starting
Note
May require additional parts and installation
Sensor triggers: The onboard shock sensor can distinguish minor impacts from major impacts to the vehicle exterior. Minor impacts causes
the system to emit a Warn-away output by chirping the siren and
flashing the parking lights for 3 seconds. Major impacts caused for
example by a forcible entry attempt, results in a Full Trigger output. The
siren sounds and the lights flash for 30 seconds or longer. Both Warnaway and Full Triggers send a message to the remote control.
Sensor Silent Arm protection
Sensor warn-away and Sensor full trigger activations only send messages to the remote, while the vehicle’s light flash and siren outputs
are defeated. Point of entry triggers will activate the light flash, siren,
and send messages normally.
© 2011 Directed Electronics. All rights reserved.
35
Feature Details
Point of entry triggers: Opening the Hood or Trunk causes a Full Trigger output, while opening a Door or turning on the Ignition causes the
the siren to chirp 3 seconds before beginning the Full Trigger output.
This 3 second delay allows time to disarm and silence the siren in
case of accidental trigger. The Full Trigger message is still sent to the
remote.
Full Silent Arm Protection
Sensor warn-away, Sensor full trigger and Point of entry activations
will only send messages to the remote, with vehicle light flash and
siren outputs defeated.
Sensor Warn-away Messages
When the remote receives a Sensor Warn-away message it emits 10
beeps (if on) and plays a sensor zone specific WARN AWAY animation once. Warn-away messages cannot be reviewed or displayed
in reports.
Full trigger Messages
A Full Trigger message generates a Full Trigger output of siren tones
and zone specific TRIGGER animation for 15 seconds followed by an
alert that consists of 2 beeps per minute for 10 minutes.
To stop the output and alert, press a command button to perform a
command, or toggle the menu wheel. If the output is not stopped, the
next press or toggle of the remote control buttons or wheel replays
the zone specific TRIGGER animation for review before returning to
normal operation.
Emergency Override
The following procedure disarms the system when a programmed remote is not available. Number of presses__________
1. Turn the ignition On.
2. Press the control button on the Control Center the correct
number of times (the default is 1 press).
3. After a few seconds the siren output ceases and the system
is disarmed.
36
© 2011 Directed Electronics. All rights reserved.
Note
As a precaution, if programmed for Passive Arming or Auto
re-arming the system should be placed into Valet Mode until
a remote is available .
Trigger Zone Fault Report
When armed by remote command the system runs a status check
of the alarm trigger zones. Faulty zones (usually caused by dome
light delay or open trunk) are bypassed and reported via the control
center LED and remote, while all other trigger zones remain active
and are monitored to protect the vehicle. Should a faulty zone self
correct (dome light turns off) it becomes active and is then monitored
normally.
The siren chirps once again a few seconds following the arming chirps
as an audible alert, the control center LED flashes in groups to indicate
the zone number. The remote emits a fault tone, displays a screen for
each faulty zone, and then updates the Sensor status icon in the Status
screen. Press any button within 20 seconds of the fault tone to review
the report without performing a command.
The most recent alarm triggers (if any) are reported when the
alarm is disarmed via the remote control, siren chirps, parking light
and control center LED flashes. The siren chirps 4 times (or 5 times if
NPC On*), the lights flash 3 times, and the control center LED flashes
in groups to indicate the last two zones that were triggered (see Table
of Zones). The remote control Disarm output is replaced by screens
and beeps that identify the two most recent triggers.

since the vehicle was last driven. When armed, the report will display
screens for two most recent Alarm Zone triggers since the system was
armed.
Note
The last trigger report clears when ignition is turned on.
Nuisance Prevention (NPC)
NPC monitors all alarm zones and, if any are triggered excessively,
bypasses them until corrected. If a point of entry (trunk, hood, door)
is left open following a forced entry, it is bypassed. It becomes active
again only after being closed.
Sensors that trigger excessively are bypassed and reported to the
remote via Sensor Status icon in the Status Screen, and by NPC On
screens that are displayed during the Disarm Trigger and Last Trigger
reports.
Bypassed sensors automatically reset after one hour and after the
vehicle is driven. Disarming then re-arming the alarm does not reset
bypassed sensors.

Remote and System Operations
Passive Arming*
Park and exit the vehicle, after the doors are closed the Passive arming countdown begins. The led flashes quickly and upon reaching 20
seconds the siren then chirps once. At 30 seconds the system arms
itself.
Anytime before the system arms you can re-enter the vehicle or
open the trunk to load or unload items and, after closing passive arming resumes.
To stay secure in case of accidental disarming the system, if a
door is not opened within 30 seconds the system re-arms itself and
locks the doors.
Auto Re-arming*
Onetime Bypass*
Turn the ignition On for one to three seconds and then Off. The siren
chirps once to confirm one-time bypass is enabled.
One-time bypass can be used to temporarily bypass the Passive arming operation for one cycle. It also bypasses the comfort closure and
auxiliary channel outputs programmed to activate when arming. After
the next disarm all operations return to normal.
* These features must be turned on by an authorized Directed dealer.
© 2011 Directed Electronics. All rights reserved.
45

Out of Range
Each time a command is performed the remote will expect a command
response from the system. If a command response is not received the
OUT OF RANGE screen and tone plays as an alert.
No Remote Output
Occasionally when a command is performed the remote may not
generate a command response output or Out of Range output. This
indicates that the system received the command but it was an incomplete command (e.g. AUX button press too short to activate the trunk
release) or it was an illegal message (e.g. the command was corrupted due to local RF interference). These are temporary normal functions of the system and remote, perform the command again within 10

System Expansion Options
Controlling two vehicles (Car Select)
The Responder HD and 1way companion remote can control systems
in two different vehicles saving the need for multiple remote controls.
This feature also allows for customized system configurations on each
vehicle that has more than one driver. See Owner Recognition for
details.
When you select the car you wish to control, the remote control sends a request to the selected car which, if within range, responds with its system status information. The remote then displays the
new car screen followed by the updated status screen. If the newly
selected car does not respond the remote control then displays the
CAR 1 NOT AVAILABLE screen (or Car 2 if applicable) and remains in
the newly selected car mode.
Owner recognition
The system can be configured to recognize the remote used when
disarming and change selected features to match the remote users
preferences. Memory seat adjustment, siren chirps, passive arming,
remote button auto unlocking, alarm output duration can all be custom
set for each remote user at the time of installation.
Comfort closure
Comfort Closure emulates turning the key in the door cylinder or holding the lock button of an OEM keyless entry. It will automatically close
the windows and sunroof on vehicles with this type of OEM convenience feature.
Alarm output duration
The length of time the siren sounds can be adjusted from 1 to 180

seconds at the time of installation.
Arming and warn-away chirp control
The system arm, disarm and sensor warn-away chirps can be configured for those that prefer a custom silent alarm operation.
Driver door priority unlocking
The door unlocking operation can be configured to emulate an OEM
style of driver priority unlocking for added security during disarming.
Auxiliary Channels
The Auxiliary Channel outputs of this system can activate many of the
convenience features found in today’s vehicles. Once a command
is performed to activate a convenience feature the Responder HD
displays an animation that matches the feature. The system installer
can clarify if any of the below listed features are compatible with your
vehicle.

Battery Information (Responder HD)
The Responder HD remote control is powered by an internal rechargeable battery that can be serviced only through an authorized Directed
Electronics dealer. The information and precautions in this section
can help maximize your battery’s life and usage in providing your
Responder HD remote control with many years of trouble free operation.
The battery information for the 1way companion remote control can
be found in the 1-way Companion Remote Control section of this
manual.
Warnings! NEVER connect the supplied AC adapter
to products other than the Responder HD remote control. It is a high current device designed specifically for
rapid charging of the Responder HD battery and may
cause severe damage or explosion when connected to
any other products.
Battery
Charging the battery when the temperature is below
32°F (0°C) or above 113°F (45°C) may cause severe
battery damage and/or reduce battery life. Avoid
placing the remote control in areas exposed to extreme cold or heat (direct sunlight) when charging the
battery.
Low Battery
After a command is performed the Responder HD and
1way companion remote controls check their battery level
and, when the level requires attention, will begin generat© 2011 Directed Electronics. All rights reserved.

ing alerts. Once the alerts begin they will continue to command the
system for several days but should be charged at the earliest opportunity or failure to control the system may occur.
Low Battery Alerts
When disarming the system using a remote control with a low battery
the siren will emit one additional chirp as an alert. If confirmation
chirps are programmed off, the system will still emit one chirp as an
alert when disarming. The Responder HD remote control also interrupts each Status screen output and plays the LOW BATTERY ON REMOTE
screen with several alert beeps.
Important
To preserve power at critically low battery levels the
HD remote disables the color display, stops receiving
messages from the system, and only performs basic
commands. The beeps and blue transmit LED continues
to operate while performing basic commands until the
battery is charged.
Battery Life
The Responder HD remote control has many features that make it one
of the most unique remote controls on the market today, including superior long range communication with the system. The default feature
settings provide for excellent battery charge duration. However, to
maximize this duration between charges, the following suggestions
will help:
