using your system
The buttons described in this manual correspond to the standard
configuration. Remember, this is not the only way your transmitter may be set up. It can be custom configured to meet your
needs.
➜ active arming
You can activate, or arm, the system by pressing
on your
transmitter for one second. When the system arms, you will hear
a short siren sound, or chirp, and the parking lights will flash
once. If the vehicle’s power door locks have been connected to
the system, the doors will lock.
12
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
While the system is armed, the status LED will flash approximately once per second, indicating that the system is actively
protecting your vehicle. If you hear a second chirp after arming,
and see the status LED flashing in groups, refer to the Diagnostics
section of this guide. This extra chirp is called Bypass Notification.
➜ passive arming
The system also can be programmed to arm itself automatically
(called passive arming). If the system is programmed for passive
arming, it will automatically arm 30 seconds after the ignition is
turned off and the system "sees" you leave the vehicle by opening
and closing a door. Whenever the system is in its 30-second
passive-arming countdown, the status LED will flash twice as
fast as it does when the system is armed. The siren will chirp
once 20 seconds after the last door has been closed. The system
is not actually armed at that point. The system arms and the
doors lock (if connected and programmed for passive locking) at
the 30 second mark, but the siren will not chirp. The early chirp
provides you with a 10-second warning prior to arming.
note: If any protected entry point (such as a door or a
switch-protected trunk or hood) is open, the system will
not passively arm (unless forced passive arming is programmed on). See Programming Options section of this
guide. Additionally, each time a protected entry is triggered during the arming countdown, the 30-second
countdown starts over.
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
13
When armed, your vehicle is protected as follows:
➤
Light impacts will trigger the Warn Away® signal. When
triggered, the siren will chirp and the parking lights will flash
for a few seconds.
➤
Heavy impacts will trigger the system. The triggered
sequence is between 1-180 seconds of constant siren and
flashing parking lights.
➤
If a door is opened, the system will immediately start
chirping the siren and flashing the parking lights. Three
seconds later, the siren output changes to a continuous blast.
This progressive response gives you time to disarm the system with your transmitter if you inadvertently open the door
while the system is armed, while still providing an instant
response (even if the door is immediately closed).
➤
Turning on the ignition key will trip the same two-stage
response as opening a door.
➤
The optional starter kill prevents the vehicle’s starter from
cranking.
➜ multi-level security arming
Multi-Level Security Arming allows you to select which of the
security system's inputs or sensors will be active and which will
be bypassed at the time that the system is armed. (See the Table
of Zones section of this guide.) Pressing
again within five
seconds of arming the security system will activate the MultiLevel Security Arming feature. Each time
is pressed again, a
different security level is selected. The different security levels
can be selected as follows:
14
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
➤
Press
one time: The parking lights flash once. The
system is armed.
➤
Press
a second time within five seconds: The parking
lights flash twice. Zone 2 is now bypassed.
➤
Press
a third time within five seconds: The parking
lights flash three times. Zone 4 is now bypassed.
➤
Press
a fourth time within five seconds: The parking
lights flash four times. Zone 7 is now bypassed.
➤
Press
a fifth time within five seconds: The parking
lights flash five times. Zones 2 and 4 are now bypassed.
➤
Press
a sixth time within five seconds: The parking
lights flash six times. Zones 2 and 7 are now bypassed.
➤
Press
a seventh time within five seconds: The parking
lights flash seven times. Zones 4 and 7 are now bypassed.
➤
Press
an eigth time within five seconds: The parking
lights flash eight times. All input zones, except zone 5, are
now bypassed.
➤
Continued pressing of
will begin the Multi-Level
Security Arming cycle over again.
note: Multi-Level Security Arming only applies to a single arming cycle. Once the system is disarmed and then
re-armed, all the zones will be active again.
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
15
➜ disarming
To disarm the system, press
. You will hear two chirps, and
the parking lights will flash twice. If the power locks are
connected to the system, the doors will unlock. If the siren chirps
either four or five times when disarming, refer to the Diagnostics
section of this guide. This is called Tamper Alert.
➜ high security disarm
This security system offers High Security Disarm. High Security
Disarm is a feature that makes it possible to silence and reset the
system while it is triggering, without disarming the system. If the
system is triggered and the siren has been sounding for longer
than six seconds, pressing
or
on the remote transmitter
will stop the trigger and return the unit to the armed state. The
system will not disarm, but rather reset. This prevents you from
disabling the system should you wish to disarm it without visually checking the vehicle. Pressing
after resetting the system
will disarm the system; pressing this button during the first six
seconds of the triggered sequence will disarm the security system
immediately. The six second timer is provided for your convenience, in case the system is accidentally triggered.
16
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
➜ disarming without a transmitter
This feature allows you to disarm the security system without the
remote transmitter should it be lost, damaged, or disabled. In order
to disarm the system without a remote transmitter, you must have
the vehicle’s ignition key and know where the Valet button is
located. Be sure to check with the installer for the location and the
number of presses of the Valet button required to disarm the system.
To disarm the security system,
turn the ignition to the ON position. Press the Valet button the
preset number of times (one to
DRW-35
five times) within 15 seconds. After five seconds the system will
disarm. If the system does not disarm, you may have waited too long;
turn the ignition off and on and try again.
Location of Valet Button_________________________________
Number of Pulses______________________________________
important! The unit can be programmed to respond to
one to five pulses of the Valet button for the disarm function. Be sure to check with the installer for the desired
programming.

full
The dome light activates for 30-seconds after seeing door
closure, ignition, or security disarm. (This is the factory setting.)
➜ silent mode
To temporarily turn off the arm or disarm chirps, use Silent
Mode™. Simply press
for less than one second before
arming or disarming, and the confirmation chirp(s) will be eliminated for that one operation only. If you want the arm/disarm
chirps turned off permanently, your dealer can do this for you.
note: The Warn Away® response to lighter impacts is
bypassed if the system is armed using Silent Mode. This
ensures that no chirps will be emitted by the siren in an
area you want chirp-free. The system is still fully capable
of triggering. Only the Warn Away® response is bypassed.
18

➜ panic mode
If you are threatened in or near your vehicle, you can attract
attention by triggering the system with your transmitter. Just
press
or
for two seconds, and you will enter Panic
Mode. The siren will sound and the parking lights will flash for
the programmed siren duration. To stop Panic Mode at any time,
press
,
or
on the remote transmitter again.
➜ valet mode
You can prevent your security system from automatically arming
and triggering by using Valet Mode. This is very useful when
washing the vehicle or having it serviced. In Valet Mode, the
security system will not arm, even with the remote transmitter,
but all convenience functions (door locks, trunk release, etc.)
will continue to work normally.
To enter or exit Valet Mode:
1. Turn the ignition on.
2. Turn the ignition off.
3. Press and release the Valet
DRW-35
button within 10 seconds.
The status LED will light solidly if you are entering Valet Mode,
and it will go out if you are exiting Valet Mode.

To enter or exit Valet Mode using the transmitter:
1. Open any vehicle door.
2. Press
.
3. Press
.
4. Press
again.
The status LED will light solidly if you are entering Valet Mode,
and it will go out if you are exiting Valet Mode.
➜ one-time bypass
This feature stops the alarm from arming or activating any
outputs that are programmed to activate when the alarm is
armed.
One-time bypass will defeat the following actions:
Passive arming: If programmed ON the alarm will not arm
itself.
If the remote is used to arm the alarm after exiting the vehicle:
Window roll up: If programmed ON this output will not
activate.
Linked Auxiliary Outputs: If programmed to activate on
arm, they will not activate.
To activate one-time bypass:
1. After parking turn the ignition off.
2. Turn the ignition On for more than 1-second and less than
3-seconds.
3. The siren will chirp once to indicate one-time bypass has
been activated.
20
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
To cancel one-time bypass perform one of the following:
Arm then disarm the alarm.
Turn the ignition On for more than 3-seconds.
➜ nuisance prevention® circuitry
Your system has Directed’s Nuisance Prevention® Circuitry
(NPC®). It prevents annoying repetitive trigger sequences due to
faulty door pin switches or environmental conditions such as
thunder, jackhammers, airport noise, etc.
Example
If the alarm triggers three times within a 60-minute period and
each time the same sensor or switch triggers the alarm, NPC® will
interpret those triggers as false alarms. After the third trigger,
NPC® ignores, or bypasses, that sensor or switch (along with any
other sensors or switches sharing the same zone) for 60 minutes.
If the bypassed sensor tries to trigger the system while it is being
bypassed, the 60-minute bypass period will start over. This ensures
that a sensor that continually triggers will remain bypassed.
Doors are covered by NPC® differently; if the alarm is triggered
by an open door for three full cycles, the doors will be bypassed
until the trigger ceases.
note: Arming and disarming the system does not reset this
function.The only ways to reset a bypassed zone are for it
to not trigger for 60 minutes, or to turn on the ignition. If
testing your system, it is important to remember that the
NPC® programming can cause zones to be bypassed and
appear to stop working. If five chirps are heard when disarming, NPC® has been engaged. If you wish to clear the
NPC® memory, turn the ignition key on.

NPC® is programmable. See Programming Options section of this
guide.

diagnostics
The microprocessor at the heart of your security system is
constantly monitoring all of the switches and sensors that are
connected to it. It detects any faulty switches and sensors and
prevents them from disabling the entire system. The microprocessor will also record and report any triggers that occurred
during your absence. Refer to the System Status Chirps and
Table of Zones charts for diagnostic information.
➜ arming diagnostics
If the system is armed while an input is active (door open, sensor
triggering, etc.) the unit will chirp once when arming and then
one more time a few seconds later. This is called Bypass
Notification.
note: Bypass Notification will not occur when using
Silent Mode™ or if chirps have been programmed OFF.
The security system will ignore the input that was active when
the system was armed, until the input goes away. Three seconds
later the system will monitor that input normally. For example,
if your vehicle has interior light exit delay, and you arm the
system before the interior light goes out, you may hear Bypass
Notification chirps. Once the light shuts off, however, the doors
are monitored normally.

23
➜ disarming diagnostics
Extra disarm chirps are the Tamper Alert. If four chirps are heard
when disarming, the system was triggered in your absence. If five
chirps are heard, a zone was triggered so many times that Nuisance
Prevention® Circuitry has bypassed that zone. The status LED will
indicate which zone was involved. (See Table of Zones section of
this guide.) The system will retain this information in its memory,
and continue to chirp four or five times each time it is disarmed,
until the next time the ignition key is turned on.
➜ system status chirps
The siren will chirp when arming/disarming the system. The
pattern of chirps will audibly report the system’s status as
described below.

➜ interpreting zone diagnostics
Warn Away responses are not reported by arming or disarming
diagnostics. If you receive a Bypass notification when arming or
a Tamper Alert notification when disarming, look at the LED.
Active or triggered zones will be indicated by a pattern of blinks
by the LED.
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
25
Example
If Zone 3 was active or triggered, the LED will blink three times
with a two-second pause. Then it will blink three times again,
and repeat until the ignition is turned on.
note: Your system stores the last six triggered zones in
memory. If your system has been triggered but the LED
has been reset by turning on the ignition, your dealer can
still recall the last six zones that were triggered. Contact
your dealer for details.
code hopping
The receiver and transmitters each use mathematical formulas
called algorithms to change their codes each time the transmitter
is used. This technology has been developed to increase the security of the unit. The control unit knows what the next codes
should be. This helps to keep the transmitter "in sync" with the
control unit even if you use the remote control out of range of
the vehicle. However, if the transmitter has been pressed many
times out of range of the vehicle, or if the battery has been
removed, it may get out of sync with the control unit and fail to
operate the system. To re-sync the remote control simply press
of the transmitter several times within range of the vehicle.
The alarm will automatically re-sync and respond to the transmitters normally.

high frequency
Your system transmits and receives at 434 MHz. This provides a
cleaner spectrum with less interference and a more stable signal.
Enjoy a phenomenal increase in range – even in areas with high
radio interference.
owner recognition
Owner Recognition is a feature available exclusively from Directed.
Using the Directed Bitwriter®, a hand-held programming tool,
your dealer can program many of the system settings. The
programmer makes it possible to program different settings for
each transmitter that is used with the system. Then, whenever a
specific transmitter is used, the system will recall the settings
assigned to that transmitter. Owner Recognition lets up to four
users of the system have different settings that meet their specific
needs. It is almost like having four separate alarms in your vehicle,
one for each user.
note: Owner Recognition cannot be programmed without a Directed Bitwriter® and the necessary software.
Check with your dealer for more information.

rapid resume logic
This Directed system will store its current state to non-volatile
memory. If power is lost and then reconnected, the system will
recall the stored state from memory. This means if the unit is in
Valet Mode and the battery is disconnected for any reason, such
as servicing the car, when the battery is reconnected the unit will
still be in Valet Mode. This applies to all states of the system
including arm, disarm, VRS®, and Valet Mode.
power saver mode
Your system will automatically enter Power Saver Mode while
armed or in Valet Mode, after a period of time in which no operation has been performed. This lowers the current draw to the
vehicle’s battery. Power Saver Mode takes over under the
following conditions:
➤
Power Saver when the system is armed: After the system has
been armed for 24 hours, the LED will flash at half its
normal rate, decreasing the system's current draw.
➤
Power Saver in Valet Mode: When the system enters Valet
Mode the LED illuminates steadily. If the vehicle is not used
(ignition is not turned on) for a period of one hour while the
system is in Valet Mode, the LED will shut off. If the system
remains in Valet Mode, the LED will come back on the next
time the ignition is turned on and then back off.
28

programming
Programming options control what your system does during
normal operation, and require few or no additional parts.
However, some may require additional installation labor.
The following is a list of the program settings, with the factory
settings in Bold:
➤
Active arming (only with the transmitter) or passive arming (automatic arming 30-seconds after the last door has been closed).
➤
Arming/disarming confirmation siren chirps on or off.
➤
The ignition controlled door lock feature on or off: With
this feature on, the doors will lock three seconds after the
ignition is turned on, and the doors closed, and unlock
when the ignition is turned off. The system will not lock the
doors when the ignition is turned on with any door open. If
your installer is programming the security system with the
Directed Bitwriter®, ignition lock and unlock are independent features and can be programmed separately.
➤
Passive door locking (with passive arming) or active door
locking (only when arming with the transmitter). Passive
locking allows the vehicle's doors to lock when the security
system passively arms (after the 30 second countdown). This
feature only works if passive arming has been programmed.
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
29
note: When programmed for passive arming and active
lock, if the system is disarmed without a door being
opened, the system will relock the doors when it passively rearms.
➤
Panic mode enabled/disabled with the ignition on: Some
states have laws against siren capability in a moving vehicle.
➤
Forced passive arming on or off: If your system is
programmed for passive arming and the forced passive
arming feature has been programmed on, the system will
passively arm after one hour, even if a protected entry has
been left open. This feature is useful if a door has been left
ajar when leaving the vehicle. Forced passive arming ensures
that the security system will be armed in every situation.
note: When the system passively arms after one hour, the
entry point that has been left open, and anything connected to the same zone, is bypassed and cannot trigger
the system. However, the remaining inputs to the system
are fully operational.
➤
Automatic Engine Disable (AED) on or off: The purpose of
this feature is to protect the vehicle from being stolen at all
times, regardless of whether or not the alarm is armed. If
AED is programmed on, the starter of the vehicle will be disabled 30 seconds after the ignition is turned off. Once the
key is turned off, the LED will flash slowly (one-half its
normal armed rate) to indicate the AED arming cycle.
Thirty seconds later, the starter of the vehicle will be disabled. To start the car, it will be necessary to disarm the
system with the transmitter. It is also possible to disarm the
30
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
AED feature by turning the ignition key to the RUN position and pressing the Valet button the programmed number
of times. AED is disabled when the system is in Valet Mode.
note: This feature will only function if the Failsafe®
Starter Kill relay has been installed.
➤
Full trigger response 30 or 60 seconds: This determines how
long the full triggered sequence lasts. Some states have laws
regulating how long a security system can sound before it is
considered a nuisance. If your installer is programming the
security system with the Directed Bitwriter®, the full triggered response can be programmed for any duration ranging
from 1 to 180 seconds.
➤
Nuisance Prevention® Circuitry on or off: Please refer to the
NPC® section of this manual for a complete explanation of
how NPC® operates. If NPC® is programmed off, the security system will respond to inputs from any sensor indefinitely.
note: Because many states have laws regulating security
systems, programming NPC® off may cause your system
to violate state laws.
➤
Progressive door trigger on or off: When the system is armed
and a door is opened, the system responds with ten chirps
prior to beginning the full triggered sequence. If an instant
trigger is desired, the progressive door trigger can be programmed off.
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
31
➤
Valet pulse count: The number of presses of the Valet button
required to disarm the security system, AED, or the VRS®
system can be programmed from one to five presses. The
default setting is one press.
➤
Siren tones and chirp volume: The output of the Revenger®
Soft Chirp® siren consists of six different tones in sequence.
Any of these tones can be eliminated by your dealer, resulting in a unique, easily identifiable siren sound. The siren
chirps can be either full volume or six decibels quieter than
the full alarm blast.
installation options
The system has many options that may require extra parts and
labor. Some of the possibilities are listed here.
➤
Progressive unlocking: In most cars with electric power door
locks, the system can be configured so that when the system is
disarmed, only the driver’s door unlocks. A second press of the
button unlocks the other doors.
➤
Vehicle Recovery System (VRS®): VRS® is an anti-carjacking
device designed to help in the safe recovery of your vehicle
in case of a carjacking. Please refer to the Vehicle Recovery
System section of this guide for a complete explanation of
how the Vehicle Recovery System operates.
32
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
vehicle recovery system (vrs®)
The optional VRS® feature is designed to ensure that any unauthorized user of your vehicle (even if using your keys and remote control)
will not be able to permanently separate you from your vehicle.
The VRS® cannot prevent a carjacking attempt; however, it does
ensure that if your vehicle is taken by an unauthorized user, it will
be disabled (after several progressive warnings) as safely as
possible. Should a carjacking occur, the VRS® allows you to
concern yourself with your personal safety without worrying
about your property.
Directed has engineered this vehicle security system, the Failsafe®
Starter Kill, and the VRS® feature to provide the best combination of personal safety and property protection available. When
properly installed, the system can never inadvertently stop your
vehicle in traffic or on railroad tracks while the vehicle is in operation. It is unlike other systems that shut down your engine
while it is running. This system is designed to perform starter interrupt, or starter kill. The Failsafe® Starter Kill cannot shut
down an already-running engine – it can only prevent an engine
from starting in the first place.
important! Any installation that allows this product to
shut down a vehicle's engine when it is running is contrary to the product’s design and intended usage, and
Directed hereby expressly disclaims any liability resulting
therefrom.
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
33
➜ arming the vrs®
To arm the VRS®, turn the ignition to the ON position and press
the arm button on the remote transmitter for one second. The
parking lights will flash and the siren will chirp once. This can be
done before driving or while driving the vehicle. Once the system
is armed, it will initiate its triggered sequence (see below) if any
door is opened and closed. If you are forced from the vehicle, the
system will trigger as the door is opened and closed. This is how
the system works to combat intersection carjacking. To protect
against parking lot carjacking, arm the VRS® before leaving the
vehicle. The system will now trigger automatically the next time
you or anyone drives the vehicle. This helps to protect the vehicle
if someone takes your keys and remote transmitter by force in a
parking lot.
note: If the VRS® system is armed while operating the vehicle and not disarmed prior to leaving the vehicle, it is still
armed and will trigger the next time the vehicle is driven.
➜ vrs® triggered sequence
Fifteen seconds after the last door has closed, the system’s status
LED will begin flashing. This delay is intended to allow you time to
distance yourself from your vehicle in the event of a carjacking.
Forty-five seconds later, the siren begins chirping and the park-
ing lights begin flashing. This time could be used to notify authorities that your vehicle has been hijacked, and tell them what
the VRS® will do next.
34
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
Fifteen seconds after the siren chirps begin, the siren’s output will
change to a continuous blast.
From this point on, when the ignition key is turned off, the VRS®
will immediately turn on the starter kill. This will prevent the
vehicle from being restarted, thus immobilizing it at that spot.
Three minutes after the constant siren output begins, the flashing
parking lights and the siren will stop. The starter kill will remain
active until the system is disarmed. If the door is opened or the
ignition is turned off and on in an attempt to restart the car, the
siren and light flashing will begin again.
➜ disarming the vrs®
Take the time to familiarize yourself with the VRS® triggering sequence and the disarm procedure. It is important to recognize
and identify the VRS® trigger sequence and know how to disarm
it in case of accidental activation.
Once the VRS® is armed, it does not disarm automatically. You
must disarm it the next time you operate the vehicle. You must
disarm it with one of the following procedures:
If the system has not entered the triggered sequence (siren has
not started chirping):
1. Turn the ignition on.
2. Press
on the transmitter for one second. The
lights will flash and the siren will chirp twice.
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
35
If the system has entered the triggered sequence (siren has begun
chirping), pressing the disarm button of the transmitter will not
disarm VRS®. To disarm the VRS® during a VRS® trigger sequence:
1. Turn the ignition on.
2. Press the Valet button the preprogrammed number of times to
DRW-35
disarm the VRS® system.
note: If the VRS® system has begun its chirping sequence,
the ignition must be turned off, then on to disarm. If you
are driving the vehicle at the time, pull to a safe place
away from traffic and follow the triggered sequence disarm procedure.
programming options
See your dealer for further details on the options listed below
available with this system.
Automatic Engine Disable: Prevents the vehicle from being started
even if the vehicle is not armed after turning the ignition Off and
exiting the vehicle.
Comfort Closure: Windows will close upon locking the vehicle.
Dual Sensor Trigger: If programmed both the onboard and at
least one of the optional sensors need to be triggered within 1second of each other for full alarm.
36
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
Forced Passive Arming: If passive arming is on and a door is left
open the system will be armed after 30-seconds.
High Security Disarm:
If the system is triggered this feature allows
the user to silence the siren and reset the system to the armed
state without having to visually check the system status.
Multi-level Arming: Allows bypassing of user selected alarm zones
of the vehicle.
Grouped Arming: Allows bypassing of the group of alarm zones
for warn-away, or both warn-away and full alarm of the vehicle.
Panic with Ignition Off: Prevents the Orange Panic button on the
remotes from activating panic with ignition On (not allowed in some
states).
Parking Light Supervision: The parking lights will illuminate for
30-seconds after disarming the system or turning the ignition off.
Remote Start Reporting: This channel 3 program option allows
bypass of the security inputs that would trigger an alarm when
activating an added optional remote start system, but still retains
a high level of security.
Retained Accessory Power: This output from the security system
can be connected to vehicle accessories. After the ignition has
been turned off, it will continue to supply power until a door
has been open and closed.

security & convenience expansions
Here we have listed only some of the many expansion options
available. Please contact your dealer for a complete explanation
of all the options available to you.
Audio Sensor: Metal on glass, glass cracking, and breaking glass
each produce distinctive acoustic signatures. The 506T audio
sensor uses a microphone to pick up sounds, and then analyzes
them with proprietary acoustic software to determine if the glass
has been struck.
Backup Battery: The 520T keeps the system armed, triggers the
alarm and keeps the starter kill active if main battery power is
disconnected.
Field Disturbance Sensor: An invisible dome of coverage is estab-
lished by installing the 508D "radar" sensor. Your security
system can then react to any intrusions into this field with the
triggered sequence.
Headlight and Parking Light Automation: The 545T Nite-Lite®
will automatically turn on your parking and headlights when it
gets dark. In addition, the 545T will turn your headlights on
whenever the windshield wipers are used. A transmitter function
can also be used to turn on your parking and headlights for a
programmed time.
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
41
Power Trunk Release: The channel two output of the system can
operate a factory power release for the vehicle’s trunk or hatch.
(An additional relay may be required.) If the factory release is not
power activated, then Directed's 522T trunk release solenoid can
often be added.
Power Window Control: Automatic power window control is pro-
vided with the 529T and 530T systems.
Valet Start System: For the ultimate in convenience, the Valet
start system can start your vehicle, monitor engine functions,
and power your climate control system with a push of a button.
Over-rev protection, open-hood lockout, brake pedal shutoff,
and automatic timer shutoff are all included. (This feature is
only for automatic transmission, fuel-injected vehicles.)
543T XHFplus External Receiver/Antenna: The 543T XHFplus
external receiver/antenna can be used to upgrade the transmitter/receiver performance in areas of high radio interference
such as military bases, airports, and hospitals.

glossary of terms
Control Unit: The "brain" of your system. Usually hidden under
the dash area of the vehicle. It houses the microprocessor which
monitors your vehicle and controls all of the system's functions.
Fail Safe Starter Kill: An automatic switch controlled by the secu-
rity system which prevents the vehicle’s starter from cranking
whenever the system is armed. The vehicle is never prevented
from cranking when the system is disarmed, in Valet mode, or
should the starter interrupt switch itself fail. Your system is ready
for this feature, however installation may require additional labor.
Input: A physical connection to the system. An input can be
provided by a sensor, pinswitch or through an existing system in
the vehicle, such as ignition or courtesy lights.
LED: A light mounted somewhere in the vehicle. It is used to
indicate the status of your system. It is also used to report triggers and faults in the system or sensors.
Shock Sensor: This is a sensor mounted in the vehicle that is
designed to pick up impacts to the vehicle or glass.
Siren: Noise generating device usually installed in the engine
compartment of the vehicle. It is responsible for generating the
"chirps" you hear, as well as the six tones you hear while the
alarm is triggered.
Transmitter: Hand-held, remote control which operates the
various functions of your system.
© 2005 directed electronics, inc.
43
Trigger or Triggered Sequence: This is what happens when the
alarm "goes off" or "trips". The triggered response of your
system consists of the siren sounding and parking light flashing
for the programmed duration.
Valet Button: A small push-button switch mounted somewhere
inside the vehicle. It is used to override the alarm when a transmitter is lost or damaged, or to enter or exit Valet mode.
Warn Away Response: Lighter impacts to the vehicle will generate
the Warning Zone response. It consists of several seconds of siren
chirps and parking light flashes.
Zone: A zone is a separate input that the alarm can recognize as
unique. Each input to the system is connected to a particular
zone. Two or more inputs often share the same zone.
