This system consists of a main control unit, one or more keypads, and various contact
sensors and detectors. The control unit is generally placed in an out of sight location
such as a closet, utility room, etc. It houses the main electronics and a backup battery
for standby power. Ordinarily, there is no reason for anyone except the installer or
service personnel to have access to the control unit.
Keypads are the primary user interface, and they display the current system status
using their LCD screen and LED lights. Keypads also produce audible feedback at
appropriate times. Generally speaking, a keypad is installed adjacent to any primary
entry/exit door(s).

Operating The System
Read this entire section before attempting to operate the system.
User Codes
<>
User Codes are required for arming, disarming, and to authorize certain features
of your system. User codes can be either 4 or 6 digits (refer to System Notes).
<>
If a mistake is made while entering a user code, press the asterisk key and enter
the code again.
<>
To prevent someone from hunting for a code the system can be set to temporarily
lockout the keypad after repeated incorrect codes. Consult your installer or
installation record sheet for the number of incorrect attempts allowed.
Checking the Ready Status
<>
When the Ready light is off, one or more zones are violated. The display will show
“Not Ready x Zn” where the x represents the number of violated zones. The system
cannot be armed until you secure or bypass the violated zone(s).
<>
To identify violated zones, press the UP arrow key repeatedly to view each zone by
name and number. If a zone is programmed as bypassable, you may bypass it
(permanently exclude it) for the immediate arming cycle by pressing the Bypass
key + zone number + the Bypass key again. The display will show “Ready w/
Bypass” once the system is ready to be armed. The Bypass key may require the
entering of a user code with an appropriate authority. NOTE: Zones not programmed
as bypassable must be secured before the system can be armed.
<>
When the Ready light is on steady the alarm system is ready to be armed. The
display will show “Ready to Arm”.
<>
If the Ready light is flashing, it indicates the system can be armed even though
one or more zones are violated. This only occurs if the violated zones are
programmed as force-armable. Arming will temporarily exclude these violated
zones from the system. If a force armed zone becomes secure while the system
is armed, it will automatically become live, meaning that it can activate an alarm if
violated. This feature is handy for a garage door. The system can be armed while
the door is up. After backing out of the garage and closing the door, the garage
door will become normal and it will be re-included into service.
Page 7
M1 Cross Platform Controllers - User Guide
Arming in the “Away” Mode
Away mode arming is the highest arm level, intended for use when the
premises is unoccupied. Both perimeter and interior zones will be armed.

to warn you that the time is about to expire. If you feel that you will be unable
to get out and close the exit door in time we recommend that you return to the
keypad, disarm, and rearm.
Arming in the “Vacation” Mode
Vacation mode is a second level of Away mode. It can be used to activate
energy saving automation features when the building will not be occupied for
an extended period of time. After arming, pressing the Exit button at any time
during the exit delay time to change the armed mode to vacation.
