1. Welcome
The Alliance System combines sophisticated design with versatility, making it the leader in its field.
Your system has been programmed to meet your requirements. However, not all of the features described in this guide
may apply to your system. Depending on how the system has been programmed, some of the system features may not
be authorized to all users.
This guide explains how to use the Alliance System if you are responsible for managing the system. This guide details
all the procedure variations, including the different responses from the system.
The terminology used to describe the various parts of your premises or Alliance System has been programmed
specifically for your requirements.
It is important that you regularly test your system to ensure that all installed equipment is operating properly.

2. The Alliance System Keypad
The LCD Display
Messages are displayed on the liquid crystal display (LCD) on the keypad. They guide you through the functions of the
Alliance System, such as identifying problems, procedures necessary to rectify problems, programming functions, and
other menu options. The display might also show information you have entered on the keypad.
09:36 19MAR2003
Code:
The first line of the display shows system information and scrolls if there are more characters than can be displayed.
The second line of the display shows instructions and characters you enter on the keypad.
In some instances there can be insufficient space to display all the text being presented (e.g. a list of areas in the
building).
•
If a complete list is displayed on line 1, there is a full stop “.” at the end of the list.
•
If the list is incomplete, the text will continue to scroll across the LCD. To jump to the beginning, press
[ON/NEXT] on the keypad. The display will update the information at the same time.
•
If only part of a name or location is shown, it can be moved left by entering the applicable number preceding
the text, and then pressing [ENTER].
Your system might display a custom message instead of the one shown above if it has been programmed to do so. For
example:
Welcome to the Alliance System
Code:
The LEDs
The red LEDs on the keypad, together with the information shown on the display, allow you to determine the system
status at a glance.
Area LEDs:
The area LEDs, one for each of the possible security areas, indicate the status of that particular area.
On
The area is unoccupied and armed.
Off
The area is occupied and the security system has been set to allow normal access.
Blinking
An alarm has occurred in the area while the area was disarmed (LED flashes slow) or armed
(LED flashes fast).
System faults:
System faults are displayed on the arming station keypads if the arming station has an LCD fitted and/or system faults
LEDs.
Report fail (FTC)
There is a failure in the communications between the control panel and a central station.
RAS fail
A remote arming station (RAS) is off-line.
DGP fail
A data gathering panel (DGP) is off-line.
Battery fail
The auxiliary battery power is low.
Trouble
Indicates a trouble in the system (RAS fail, low battery, etc.).
AC fail
Indicates an AC power loss.
Line fail
Indicates a failure in the telephone line or connection between the control panel and the
telephone line.

3. User Identification
All users of the Alliance System need PIN codes and/or cards. The PIN code has between four and nine digits and is a
combination of numbers between 0 and 9. The PIN code is unique for each user.
The PIN code is programmed to let a user do specific tasks, such as arm or disarm the system.
The Alliance System combines options for alarm and access control. Alarm control provides options to monitor zone
inputs and determine if an alarm should occur when an intruder is detected. Access control provides options to monitor
and control access to the premises.
The following features are used to group functions together and consequently determine which functions a user can
access.
Alarm groups
Alarm groups contain options available to control the alarm system and perform functions.
There are many alarm groups and each one is assigned specific areas and a specific set of functions. Your user number
is assigned to an alarm group and therefore performs only the functions of that alarm group.
Time zones are allocated to each alarm group. This means that the functions of an alarm group can be further controlled
by the time.
Example: An alarm group for managers allows access to all Alliance System user operations at all times,
while an alarm group for a cleaning company only allows their cards to disarm an area for 1 hour between
17:00 and 23:00.
Door Groups
Door groups contain options available to gain access to the premises by controlling doors.
There are up to 128 door groups in your system for controlling access to doors. Each door group is allocated specific
door numbers, and each door number is allotted a time zone (during which you can access the door).
Your user number is assigned to a door group and will therefore access only the doors of that door group during the
specified time zone(s).
Example: A door group for a night shift worker allows their PIN code to be used to only open a door between
23:00 and 07:00.
Floor Groups (Not Available At This Time)
Using a PIN Code
When you enter your PIN code on the keypad, each key pressed is indicated by * on the display. If you enter the wrong
PIN code, or a code/card that is not valid at a particular arming station, the keypad will beep quickly seven times.
Correct a wrong code by pressing [CLEAR] and enter the correct code.
If you access a menu and do not use any keys for two minutes, you will automatically exit from the menu. It is a good
practice to exit the menu using 0[ENTER] or [CLEAR] rather that the time-out feature because if someone else uses
the menu before it times out, the functions they use will be logged against your PIN code.
Users can only access the menu options that their PIN code has been authorized to access. When you try to access an
option that you are not authorized to access, the message “You are not authorized to enter” will display.

Alliance System User’s Guide
4. Duress Signal
The duress function activates a silent signal to alert security personnel. For example, if you are asked, under threat, to
breach you system’s security this function lets you do so while at the same time activating the system duress feature.
However, your system must be programmed to use it.
The duress function requires that you use a duress digit in conjunction with your PIN code. The duress digit is the last
digit of you PIN code plus one.
Example: PIN = 1234
duress digit = 5 (if the last digit of your PIN code is 9, the duress digit is 0)
To activate duress:
•
Enter your PIN code without the last digit (1 2 3, in the example above)
•
Enter the duress digit (5, in the example above)
•
Press [OFF] or [ON/NEXT] or [ENTER]
To reset the duress function (turn off the silent signal), enter a valid PIN code.
Note If duress was activated under conditions that are no longer valid (false alarm), and it has been reset,
you must contact your central station company to ensure that they take no further action.
Note Using your PIN code with the duress digit still activates the functions associated with the PIN code.
Alliance System User’s Guide

5. Opening Doors
An Alliance System keypad can be used to open a door by entering a door code.
Your door code is related to your PIN code. It varies, depending on whether your PIN code has been programmed to
allow you to arm/disarm your system, as well as open doors.
Open A Door
1.
The bottom line of the display must show:
2.
Enter your door code.
Code:
Note In most systems with access control, an “alarm code prefix” is used. The alarm code prefix is the
number of digits to subtract from the beginning of your full PIN code to make your door code (this is
programmed by the installer).
Example: Prefix = 2
Full PIN code = 123456
Door code = 3456
A door code only opens doors programmed for that code (the door group assigned to the user might not
allow access to all doors).
If an invalid code is entered, or the code is not valid for the arming station, the keypad sounds seven quick
beeps.
3. Press:
[ENTER] to only open the door
Or
[OFF] to disarm the security and open the door if your full PIN code is entered.
Or
[ON/NEXT] to arm the security and open the door if your full PIN code is entered.
If the door can only be opened for a preset time, the display might show:
Shunted Zone
Code:
If the door is closed before the end of the maximum open time, “Shunted Zone” is removed from the display and the
keypad sounds the warning buzzer for three seconds to indicate that the door is no longer shunted.
If the door is not closed at the end of the shunt time, the display shows “Shunting Ends” on the top line of the display.
The keypad sounds the warning buzzer for a preset time to let you close the door or re-enter your PIN code to extend
the suppression time.

Alliance System User’s Guide
6. Arming the System
Arm your premises, or areas in it, when they are unoccupied. If an event, such as someone forcing a door open, occurs
when the system is armed, it will set off an alarm.
Once you have armed the system, you must leave the area within a preset exit time to avoid setting off an alarm. All
users must be informed of this time limit.
You might not be able to arm specific areas in the premises because:
•
Your keypad has been programmed to arm only specific areas in the premises. Make sure you know which
keypad to use if there is more than one present in the premises.
•
Your PIN code has been programmed to arm only specific areas of the premises. Make sure you know which
areas you can arm.
•
You cannot arm an area if it has a zone input device not properly closed (such as magnetic contacts on a door
or window). Before arming, make sure that all doors and windows are properly closed. If a zone input is open
when you arm, the keypad will sound seven quick beeps and you will get the message “Active On…”
Arm the System
1.
The display must show:
There Are No Alarms In This Area
Code:
2.
Enter your PIN code.
3.
Press [ON/NEXT]
4.
The result of step 3 depends on whether the system has been programmed to display a list of areas assigned to
your PIN code.
Programmed Not to Display Areas Assigned to Your PIN Code
If your system has not been programmed to display the areas assigned to your PIN code, all areas that were disarmed
are now automatically armed (provided zone were not programmed for tamper). The display returns to that shown
above. The area LEDs illuminate when the arming procedure is successful.
Programmed to Display Areas Assigned to Your PIN Code
If a list of the areas assigned to your PIN code is displayed, all
disarmed areas are listed. For example:
0-ALL 1, Office 2, Boardroom
Enter Area:
From the display you have the following options:
Option
Action
Arm all areas at once and return to the original display.
Enter 0 and press [ENTER].
Arm the selected area. If there are more disarmed areas, they will be
displayed.
Enter area number and press
[ENTER]. When finished arming,
press [ENTER] again.
Exit the menu option and return to the original display. Areas already armed
will stay armed.
Press [CLEAR].
Display the next disarmed area in the list. You can then select an area to be
armed, or continue to press [ON/NEXT] to continue scrolling.
Press [ON/NEXT].
The area LED(s) illuminate when the arming procedure has been successful.
Alliance System User’s Guide
9
7. Disarming Your System
If the area you want to access is armed, you must first disarm the system before you can access the area without setting
off an alarm. The illuminated (red) area LED(s) on the keypad indicates which areas are armed.
On entering the area, the system will allow a preset entry time to disarm the area before an alarm occurs.
If there is an alarm condition when you are disarming the system, the alarm is reset. You must then find out what
caused the alarm and fix it. See Section 11, Listing Past Alarm Events, for details on how to get a list of all the alarms
that recently occurred.
You might not be able to disarm specific areas in the premises because:
•
Your keypad has been programmed to disarm only specific areas in the premises. Make sure you know which
keypad to use if there is more than one present in the premises.
•
Your PIN code has been programmed to disarm only specific areas of the premises. Make sure you know
which areas you can disarm.
Disarm the System
1.
If there are no alarms in the area, the display must show:
There Are No Alarms In This Area
Code:
2.
Enter your PIN code.
3.
Press [OFF]
4.
The result of step 3 depends on whether the system has been programmed to display a list of the areas assigned to
your PIN code.
Programmed Not to Display Areas Assigned to Your PIN Code
If your system has not been programmed to display the areas assigned to your PIN code, all armed areas are now
automatically disarmed (provided zones were not programmed for tamper). The display returns to that shown above.
The area LED(s) distinguish when the disarming procedure is successful.
Programmed to Display Areas Assigned to Your PIN Code
If a list of the areas assigned to your PIN code is displayed, all
armed areas are now listed. For example:
0-ALL 1, Office 2, Boardroom
Enter Area:
From the display you have the following options:
Option
Action
Disarm all areas at once and return to the original display.
Enter 0 and press [ENTER].
Disarm the selected area. If there are more armed areas, they will display.
Enter area number and press
[ENTER]. When finished
disarming, press [ENTER] again.
Exit and return to the original display. Areas already disarmed will stay
disarmed.
Press [CLEAR].
Display the next armed area in the list. You can then select an area to be
disarmed, or continue to press [ON/NEXT] to scroll.
Press [ON/NEXT].
The area LED(s) distinguish when the disarming procedure is successful.

Alliance System User’s Guide
8. Active Zones (When Arming)
You cannot arm an area unless all the zones in that area are normal, as an active zone would usually set off an alarm.
For example, all doors and windows must be closed.
If a zone is active while you try to arm or disarm an area, the keypad sounds seven quick beeps and displays the active
zones.
Active zones are listed either one at a time or as a list of numbers.
One at a time:
Active On 6.Front Door
NEXT or ENTER
List of numbers:
Active On 6, 7, 9,
Zone No:
From the displays you have the following options:
Option
Action
Update the list of active zones and display the next zones in the list (if any).
Press [ON/NEXT].
Display the zone name in full.
Enter the zone number and press
[ENTER].
Exit the menu option and return to the original display.
Press [CLEAR].
After you have determined which zones are active, you must check these and correct the problem (e.g. close the door),
then exit this display and try again to arm the system. If you are unable to close the zone, refer to Section 22, Bypass
Zone, Menu 10.
Alliance System User’s Guide

9. Types of Alarms
There are three types of alarms used in the Alliance System.
1.
Local Alarm
2.
Alarm
3.
System Alarm
•
Local alarms occur when an area is occupied (disarmed). For example, zones with 24-hour security have been
activated such as a fire door being opened.
•
The circumstances that caused a local alarm need to be checked and rectified by someone on site. The alarm
does not need to be reported to a central station.
Local Alarm
See Section 10, What to Do When There Is An Alarm under “Resetting A Local Alarm” for the procedure to identify,
acknowledge, and reset a local alarm.
Alarm
•
The area is armed and one of its zones has been activated. For example, a door lock has been forced open
causing a siren to sound.
•
The area is disarmed and a 24-hour zone was activated. For example, a hold-up button is activated or a
tamper switch is open.
•
The exact type of alarm (siren, flashing light, etc.) depends on how the system has been programmed.
•
The area LED on the panel identifies the location of the alarm.
See Section 10, What to Do When There Is An Alarm under “Resetting a Zone In Alarm” for the procedure to reset an
alarm.
System Alarm
•
The state of a security system when an Alliance System device (control panel, RAS, or DGP) is tampered,
stops communicating, or detects a fault condition such as an AC fail or a low battery.
Examples:
Alarm equipment interfered with or covers removed (DGP tamper)
Communications cabling interfered with – cut or shorted (DGP or RAS fail)
Connections to siren speaker(s) interfered with – cut or shorted (siren fail)
Telephone line connection lost due to disconnection, short, or other failure (line fault)
Panel failed to report a pending event to the central station (report failed FTC)
Power supply interrupted and/or overload and battery problems (AC fail, fuse fail, low
battery)
The exact type of alarm (siren, flashing light, etc.) depends on how the system has been programmed.
Your system has been programmed to respond to a system alarm in one of two ways:
1. Latching System Alarms
A PIN code, which is authorized to reset system alarms, must be entered to reset a system alarm. (The
procedure to identity and reset latching system alarms is the same as described for “Alarms” above.)
2. Non-Latching System Alarms
The system alarm resets automatically as soon as the condition causing the alarm is rectified. (The procedure
to identify the system alarm detail is the same as the procedure described in “Alarm” above.)
12
Alliance System User’s Guide
10. What to Do When There Is An Alarm
When there is an alarm, the LED of the area in alarm flashes red on the keypad. The time and date message is no longer
displayed.
An area can have several zones associated with it. When there is an alarm, it is important that you know which zone is
causing the problem so that you can quickly locate and fix it.
Resetting a Local Alarm
•
The keypad emits a modulating tone until the local alarm is acknowledged (if programmed).
•
The LED of the area in alarm flashes red on the keypad (if programmed).
•
The display shows the following:
,Alarm On …
Code:
1.
Press [ENTER] [ENTER].
2.
The zones causing the alarm are listed either one at a time or as a list.
One at a time:
Local Alarm On A4, Rear Door
NEXT or ENTER
As a list of numbers:
Local Alarm On A4, A5, A9, NEXT
Zone No:
3.
From the displays you have the following options:
Option
Action
Acknowledge the local alarm (see note below). Depending on programming, a
user code may be required to reset.
Enter 0 and press [ENTER].
Display the complete zone name.
Enter the zone number and press
[ENTER].
Update the list of zones and display the next zone on the list (if any).
Press [ON/NEXT].
Exit the menu option and return to the original display.
Press [CLEAR].
4.
The display shows:
There Are No Alarms In This Area
Code:
5.
Fix the problem (e.g. close the door).
Note If your system has been programmed to remind you about alarms, it will automatically re-alarm after
a preset time unless the cause of the alarm has been fixed, no matter how many times you acknowledge the
alarm.
When a re-alarm does occur, the letter preceding the zone number will not be shown.
Alliance System User’s Guide
13
10. What To Do When There Is An Alarm
Resetting a Zone In Alarm
The LED of the area in alarm flashes red on the keypad.
The sirens are active (if programmed).
When an alarm occurs, the display “There Are No Alarms In This Area” disappears from the top line. Instead the
display will show:

Code:
1.
Enter your PIN code.
2.
Press [OFF]. The display shows:
0-All 1, Area One 2, Area Two
Enter Area:
3.
Enter the area number of the zone in alarm (flashing LED)
and press [ENTER]. The display shows:
There Are No Alarms In This Area
Code:
4.
Determine where the alarm occurred by reviewing the quick
alarm history (see Section 11, Listing Past Alarm Events).
5.
Fix the problem.
Additional Information About Alarms
14
•
If the alarm conditions are no longer valid, and the alarm has been reset, you must contact your central station
company to ensure that they take no further action.
•
If you are unable to reset an alarm because of a faulty zone, refer to Section 22, Bypass Zone, Menu 10.
•
You can only reset an alarm for an area that is assigned to your PIN code. If you are unable to reset the alarm,
ensure that the flashing area LED is for an area you can disarm with your PIN code. If not, your attempt to
reset the alarm might result in your arming/disarming your system.
•
If you are unable to reset a system alarm because the conditions require a service technician, notify your
alarm company.
•
The system can be programmed so that certain alarms (such as tamper alarms) require a specific action from
your installer. “Engineer Reset Req” will appear on the display and a code will be shown. Give this
information to your installer.
Alliance System User’s Guide
11. Listing Past Alarm Events
This list provides you with a quick alarm history. It is a fast and easy way to review where alarms have occurred. This
information is useful when you have to reset an alarm without first checking its cause.

12. The Alliance System Menu
The Alliance System menu has 23 user option menus available for performing various user functions (Menu 19, is
reserved for the installer only). Some of the functions are specific only to certain installations, while others might not
be authorized to you. Therefore, you are unlikely to see all the menu options when you access the system menu, but
only those that have been programmed to be available when your PIN code is used. As manager of the system, your
PIN code is programmed by the installer to access a wider number of the menu options than the general user.
If you access the menu and do not use any keys for two minutes, you will automatically exit from the menu. It is a good
practice to always exit from the menu using 0[ENTER] or [CLEAR] rather than the time-out feature because if anyone
else uses the menu before it times out, the functions they use would be logged against your PIN code.
If you attempt to select an option that is not authorized to your PIN, the display will show the message, “You Are Not
Authorized To Enter”.
Although you might be authorized to access a menu option, you might not be allowed to access all the information it
provides. You will only be allowed to access information on the areas assigned to your PIN code.

When programming cards, the ID number programmed in the card is the user number (unless your system
uses a card offset).
•
The user’s alarm group, which determines the user’s area(s) and alarm control functions (e.g. Manager, Staff,
etc.).
Note Your own alarm group might not allow you to program PIN codes. If it does allow use of the
function, there might still be restrictions on which alarm groups you are allowed to update.

Access control
The control of entry to, or exit from, a security area.
Active
The zone input is activated (e.g. Emergency Exit Door open).
(See Normal/Active/Tamper/Bypassed).
Alarm
The state of a security system when a device connected to a zone input is activated and
the condition of the area is such that activation should be signaled (e.g. a door lock is
broken, causing a siren to sound).
Alarm group
Alarm groups define the options available to users, arming stations or door reader to
allow alarm control. Alarm groups are defined by a set of areas, alarm control functions
and menu options.
Zone types for area control (keyswitches) also make use of alarm groups.
Alarm group restriction
An alarm group restriction can be assigned to an alarm group to enable different types of
user to:
- Use timed disarm option for certain area(s)
- Restrict alarm control to “Arm/reset only” on certain area(s) or
- Use the “User Count” or “Emergency” function.
Alarm reporting
A procedure to transmit alarm events or other events to a central station by means of a
dialer and a set of rules called a protocol.
Alarm control
The control over alarm functions.
Area
A section of a premise, which has specific security requirements. The Alliance System
allows any premise to be divided into 16 areas of different security requirements. Each
area has its own zone inputs. Each area is identified with a number and a name (e.g. Area
1 Office, Area 2 Workshop, Area 3 Boardroom, etc).
Armed
The condition of an area where a change in the status of any zone input (from normal to
active) causes an alarm. An area or premise is only armed when it is unoccupied,
although some zone inputs (vaults) can remain armed continually.
Burglar alarm
An alarm triggered by a security device, such as a PIR or door contact that indicates
someone has entered without authorized access.
Bypassed
The zone input has been excluded from functioning as part of the system and does not
indicate normal or active status.
(See Normal/Active/Tamper/Bypassed)
Central station
A company that monitors whether an alarm has occurred in a security system. A central
station is located away from the premise/area it monitors.
Control panel
An electronic device that is used to gather all data from zone inputs on the premises.
Depending on programming and status of areas, it generates alarm signals. If required,
alarms and other events will be reported to a central station.
Cursor
A flashing underline character on the liquid crystal display (LCD) that indicates where
the next character entered on the keypad will appear.
DGP
(Data Gathering Panel) A device that collects data from other security devices within an
area, and transfers it to the main control panel or 4-door DGP.
Dialer
An electronic device that allows the system to transmit alarms and other events to a
central station. It can also be used to perform up/download.
Disarmed
The condition of an occupied area when the security system has been set so that normal
activity does not set off an alarm.
Door contact
A magnetic contact used to detect if a door or window is opened.
Door control
The control over door functions.
Door group
A feature that assigns a group of doors to a user, in order to allow the user access to those
doors. Access to each door in a group can be restricted via a time zone.
Dual detector
A security device based on two techniques, such as PIR and RADAR or PIR and
Ultrasonic, used to detect intruders in an area or premise.
Alliance System User’s Guide
Duress
When a user is being forced to breach the system security (e.g. forced at gunpoint to open
the door), the duress feature allows the user to signal a central station by entering a duress
digit in conjunction with a PIN code.
Engineer
Installer employee qualified to install and service the control panel.
Event flags
A signal activated by a zone input condition, area condition, system status or fault
condition, door command (on doors 1 to 16), or shunt condition. The main purpose of an
event flag is to activate an output.
History
A list of past alarm and access control events stored in memory that can be viewed on an
LCD arming station or sent to a printer.
Hold-up
An alarm (silent) triggered by a hold-up button only sends a message to a central station.
Installer
A company that installs and services security equipment.
Keypad
A remote arming station (RAS) with keys to input data used to program the control panel,
perform user functions, view alarms, etc.
Keyswitch
A device using a switch with a key to arm or disarm areas.
LCD
(Liquid Crystal Display) The part of a remote arming station (RAS) where messages are
displayed.
LED
(Light Emitting Diode) A light indicator on an arming station, which conveys a condition
(e.g. area in alarm, communication fault, etc).
Local alarm
An alarm that occurs in an occupied area and is signaled within a premise and not
reported to a central station.
Logic equation
A logic expression that combines macro inputs in a specific manner. The result of a logic
equation is called a macro output.
Macro input
An event flag or an output that is used in a logic equation. Each macro input is an event
flag or output.
Macro logic program
A set of rules that is created by macro inputs, logic equations and macro outputs that is
used to trigger event flags or zone inputs.
Macro output
A macro output holds the result of a logic equation. The macro output can have a timing
element. Macro outputs trigger event flags or zone inputs.
Normal/Active/Tamper
/Bypassed
Describes the condition of a zone input.
Normal:
The zone input is NOT activated (e.g. Emergency Exit Door closed).
Active:
The zone input is activated (e.g. Emergency Exit Door open).
Tamper:
The zone input is open or short-circuited. Someone may have tried to tamper
the security device.
Bypassed: The zone input has been excluded from functioning as part of the system and
does not indicate normal or active status.
On-line/off-line
Operational/non-operational. A device may be off-line due to a malfunction in the device
itself or it may be disconnected from the control panel.
A PCB module that connects to the control panel or a data-gathering panel (DGP) to
provide relay or open collector outputs. When programming, 1 output controller equals 8
outputs.
Output controller
PIN code
A 4 to 10-digit number given to, or selected by, a user. It is necessary to enter a PIN code
on an Alliance keypad as a prerequisite to perform most functions. In programming, the
PIN code is associated with a user number, which identifies the PIN code holder to the
system.
PIR detector
(Passive Infrared) A security device used to detect intruders in a certain part of an area or
premise based on infrared detection.
Poll
An inquiry message continually sent by the control panel to data gathering panels (DGP)
and remote arming stations (RAS). Polling allows the remote unit to transfer data to the
control panel.
RAS
(Remote Arming Station) A RAS is the user’s control panel for security functions for
areas or for access points (doors). The RAS can be a console (LCD keypad, reader) or
any other device that can be used to perform security function, such as arm/disarm, open
doors, etc.
Reader
A device used for access control that can read cards to allow access. Depending on the
needs and the type of cards, the reader can be a magnetic swipe reader or a proximity
reader.

RTE zone
(Request-to-Exit) A zone input that is programmed to activate a door event flag (e.g. a
button provided inside a door to allow users to exit without using the door reader).
Shunt
A procedure that automatically stops a zone input from generating an alarm when it is
activated (e.g. shunts stop a door from generating an alarm when opened for a short time).
Tamper
Tampers are situations where a zone input, arming station, control panel, DGP, or
associated wiring are tampered with, or accidentally damaged. The tamper feature
activates a signal when tampers occur.
Time zone
A program setting, which identifies specific time periods on specific days. Time zones
are allocated to functions to control the activity of that function by time and day and are
primary used to restrict access (e.g. automatically arm or disarm areas or open doors).
Up/Download
A protocol providing means to view the status of a system or change parameters in the
system.
User
Anybody making use of the system. Users are identified to the system with a unique
number that is associated with the user’s PIN code.
Zone input
An electrical signal from a security device (PIR detector, door contact) to the system.
Each device is identified with a zone input number and name (e.g. 14 Reception Hold-up
Button, 6 Emergency Exit Door).
