Security System User`s Guide
Security System User’s Guide
Before using this manual, you should be familiar with the
User’s Cards located inside the keypad. The User’s Cards
provide instructions for frequently used functions.
This guide contains instructions for system owners to change
other user’s passcodes. It also describes basic features of the
security system.
Maintenance and Service
The keypad requires very little maintenance, however, test the
system weekly to insure early detection of a need for service.
A test schedule and maintenance program can be arranged
with your alarm company. If you notice a change in operation
during normal use or testing, call for service as soon as
possible. Do not attempt to repair the control panel, keypads,
or detectors yourself.
Call ________________________________ Before Testing
The security system is connected to this telephone number:
The security control panel is connected to the phone jack
Power Failure
If your keypad indicates a power failure, and you have power
in the rest of your premises, there may be a problem with the
electrical transformer or circuit breaker supplying power to
your security control panel. First, check to be sure that the
transformer is securely plugged into the electrical outlet. If it
appears to be damaged in any way, do not attempt to repair it.
Call your security company for service.
Transformer location: _____________________________
If the transformer is plugged in, check the circuit breaker
supplying power to the outlet. If the breaker is tripped, check
the appliances on the circuit for signs of electrical problems.
Make sure someone has not intentionally turned the breaker
off. When all is clear, reset the breaker.

Fire Safety
Residential fire is a leading cause of accidental death. Most
fire related deaths occur at night when the occupants
suffocate in their sleep from smoke and deadly gases, rather
than from burns. To help reduce this risk, the following threestep program should be implemented:
1. Minimize fire hazards around the home. Smoking in bed,
cleaning with flammable liquids such as gasoline, leaving
children home alone, and unsafe holiday decorations are
some of the more common causes of household fire.
2. Install a fire warning system. The primary purpose of this
system is to protect lives, not property, by giving the
earliest possible warning of the danger. In the event of a
fire, the alarm system generates a loud intermittent tone
distinctly different than a burglar alarm.
In homes with more than one sleeping area a smoke
detector (indicated by an inverted "s" in a circle) should be
provided to protect each area.
3. Plan and practice an escape plan. A fire alarm warning
may be wasted unless the family has planned for a quick
evacuation. Because there may be very little time
between detection of a fire and the time it becomes
deadly, it is important that every member of the family
understand exactly what to do.
Possible escape routes through open windows marked with arrows.
Page 2
Primary and alternate escape routes should be established.
Since stairwells and hallways may be blocked during a fire,
exiting through a bedroom window at night should be an
essential part of the escape plan. If the sleeping area is above
the ground floor, provide a means for safely descending
outside the building if one does not already exist.
As part of this plan, all family members should arrange to
meet at a predetermined location away from the house (such
as a neighbor’s), to verify that all are accounted for.
In Case of Fire
1. The primary purpose of a fire warning system is to protect
lives. In the event of a fire alarm, quickly leave the
building and call the fire department from a neighbor's or
public telephone.
2. If it is determined the alarm was accidentally tripped, the
bell should be silenced, the detectors reset and your
alarm company notified immediately of the situation.
Emergency Keys
There are three emergency keys across the top of the keypad.
These keys perform system functions when pressed twice.
Your alarm technician programs the Emergency Keys.
Remember, press the key two times to perform an
emergency function.

Reporting to the Security Company
❒ My system reports to my security company.
❒ My system does not report to my security company.
Your system may be programmed to send a "closing" report to
your security company when you turn it on, and an “opening”
report when you turn it off.
❒ My system sends opening and closing reports.
❒ My system does not send opening and closing reports.
Your security system automatically disconnects your
telephone from its line when it sends reports to your security
company. This prevents reports from being interrupted during
transmission. Once the report has been completed, the
telephone line is restored to normal service.
Note: If damage occurs to the telephone line and your
telephone service is interrupted, reports will not be sent to
your security company unless an alternate means of
transmitting signals is installed in your system.
Passcode Privileges
Users can have one of three passcode types: Owner, User, or
• Owner type passcodes can re-configure how the system
responds to “watched” points. This feature is described in
Watch ~Test in the User Cards. In addition, the Owner
passcode can be used to change other users’ “type” and
can change other users’ passcodes. The type and
passcode change features are described in the pages that
• User type passcodes are given to most users of the
system, and allow all but owner functions to be performed.
• One-Time passcodes allow the user to disarm the system
one time only. You can give them to temporary users, such
as housekeepers or service workers.

Show User
The Show User mode shows each user’s passcode type on
lights 1 to 8. The type for Code 1 displays on light 1 and so
Flash (fast blink) ––– Owner type
Wink (slow blink) ––– User type
On –––––––––––––– One-Time type
Off –––– Disabled passcodes and One-Time
passcodes that have been used once to turn
the system off.
To renew One-Time passcodes:
1. Press Key 6 to enter Show User Mode.
2. Enter your passcode. (Owner type required.)
3. Press 9 to renew all One-Time passcodes.
Lights for One-Time passcodes turn on.
4. Press Clear to exit Show User Mode.
To change Passcode Types:
1. Press Key 6 to enter Show User Mode.
2. Enter your passcode. (Owner type required.)
3. Press keys 1 to 8 to toggle the passcode type. Key 1 for User
1 and so on.
For example, if light 3 is winking (User Type), pressing key 3
changes the code type for user 3 to One-Time. Light 3
changes from wink to on.
Pressing 3 again disables the passcode; light 3 is off.
Pressing key 3 a third time changes to Owner; light 3 flashes.
You can not change your own passcode type.
To "remove" a passcode, change its type to disabled.

Security System Limitations
Not even the most advanced security system can guarantee
protection against burglary, fire, or environmental threats. All
security systems are subject to possible compromise or
failure-to-warn for a variety of reasons including, but not
limited to, the following:
• If sirens or horns are placed outside the hearing range of
people in remote areas of the building or in areas which
are frequently closed off, they do not provide the intended
• If intruders gain access through unprotected points of
entry, the system will not detect their entrance.
• If intruders have the technical means of bypassing,
jamming, or disconnecting all or part of the system, they
will not be detected.
• If the AC power supply is OFF and the backup battery is
either missing or dead, sensors will not detect intrusion.
• Smoke detectors cannot detect smoke in chimneys,
walls, or roofs, or smoke blocked by a closed door. They
may not detect smoke or fire on a level of the building
different from the one on which they are located. Smoke
detectors may not be able to warn in time about fires
started by explosions, improper storage of flammables,
overloaded electrical circuits, or other types of hazardous
• If phone lines are out of service, reports from the security
system to the security company cannot be sent.
Telephone lines are vulnerable to compromise by several
Inadequate maintenance and failure to test are the most
common causes of alarm failure. It is strongly recommended
that you test your system once a week to be sure that all
system components are working properly.
Although having a security system may make you eligible for
reduced insurance premiums, the system is no substitute for
insurance. Warning devices cannot compensate you for loss
of life or property.
