CARETAKER PLUS: MOST FREQUESNTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Which sensor programming group should I use for a wireless freeze sensor?
Group 29 (Auxiliary Environmental) is the sensor group for freeze or water sensors. It is a
24-hour, Instant, Auxiliary Interior siren type, is active in all protection levels, and reports
to the central station.
How do Entry/Exit Delay sensor programming groups 10, 11, and 12 work together?
Groups 10, 11, and 12 are Entry/Exit Delay sensor groups with the following differences:
Sensors programmed to Group 10 can have separate entry and delay times
(programmable from 8 to 88 seconds).
Sensors programmed to Group 11 have the same entry and exit delay times
(programmable from 1 to 8 minutes).
Sensors programmed to Group 12 have the same entry and exit delay times and are twice the
delay times programmed for group 11.
How do the delays cascade or affect each other?
Delays affect each other differently depending on whether they are on entry or exit:
On entry, delays cascade down (the lesser time remaining of the zone group already open or
the next delay zone activated). On exit, programmed delays cascade up (the greater time
remaining of the group you already have open or the next delay zone activated).
For example, let’s assume an overhead garage door is assigned to Group 11 and both of its
entry and exit delays are programmed for 1 minute.
A garage-to-house service door is
assigned to Group 10 and both of its entry and exit delays are programmed for 32 seconds.
Opening the overhead garage door upon entry (from outside) will start its 1 minute timer
counting down. When the service door is opened, the time remaining on the overhead door 1
minute timer or the service door 32 second delay timer, whichever time is less, becomes the
entry delay time remaining. Opening the service door upon exit (from inside) will start its 32
second delay timer counting down. When the overhead door is opened, whatever time
remaining on the service door 32 second delay timer is canceled and the overhead door 1
minute delay timer is started.
Why doesn’t pressing the BYPASS button allow the system to arm when it is protesting an
open sensor programmed to Group 26?
For personal safety reasons, sensors programmed to Group 26 (24-hour Fire sensors) cannot
be bypassed or ignored.
What are the four types of 4/2 format reports that can be sent to the central station?
The four types of 4/2 format reports that can be sent to the central station are: Alarms,
Cancels, Troubles, and Restorals.
How do the STATUS, BYPASS, COMMAND, and FIRE buttons work differently in the
program mode of operation?
In the program mode of operation the—
STATUS button
Scrolls backwards through the displayed list. It can also
can be used to erase incorrect entries and allow you to
re-enter the correct entry.
BYPASS button
COMMAND button
Scrolls forward through the displayed list.
Enters program sub menus and also enters keyed-in or
displayed data into the panel memory.
FIRE button
Exits from the displayed sub menu back to the main menu.
Does turning on the Touchpad Quiet feature affect all of the system’s alphanumeric
touchpads?
Turning on the Touchpad Quiet feature affects only the touchpad from which it is being set.
Touchpad Quiet can be set at selected touchpads.
Why run a Customer Sensor Test after completing the installation?
A Customer Sensor Test is run after completing the installation to quickly verify that the
installed sensors are all transmitting to the panel, the backup battery is OK, and to instruct
the customer how to do a sensor test themselves.
Why should I use Dealer Sensor Test to test the system during installation?
The Dealer Sensor Test is used to determine if sensors are transmitting and if sensor locations
are acceptable before being permanently installed. An actual wireless signal strength-to-noise
test is performed.
What does the optional Feature Expansion Module (FEM) provide?
The optional Feature Expansion Module (FEM) provides—
—increased voice volume on alarm.
—a special switched DC power supply for resettable hardwire smoke detectors.
—interface for an optional Energy Saver Module (ESM).
How does the optional Energy Saver Module (ESM) work?
The optional ESM works like a switch that takes control the heating or air conditioning away
from the thermostat and allows the premises to heat up or cool down beyond the normal
thermostat comfort levels. Thus saving energy when no one is home.
Does it matter where I locate and mount the ESM?
Yes, it does matter where the ESM is located. It should be mounted as close to the existing
thermostat as possible so that they both ìseeî the same temperatures at the same time.
How many optional Energy Saver Modules (ESMs) can be used in a system and why?
Only one ESM is allowed per system. There are no capabilities to program high- and lowtemperature settings for multiple ESMs.
What is a Buddy system?
A buddy system is two or more neighboring ITI SX-V or Learn Mode systems within wireless
range of each other that will communicate with the central station should there be a phone
failure on one of the systems.
How do I wire, program, and learn a buddy transmitter?
In general, the buddy transmitter is a SX-V or Learn Mode wireless door/window sensor with
its external contact terminals wired to the local panels fail to communicate and ground
terminals and then learned into the neighboring panels memory.
To wire, and program a Learn Mode buddy transmitter:
1. Connect the external contact + terminal to the panel terminal 20 (FTC) and the external
contact terminal to panel terminal 11 (Gnd).
2.
Learn the Learn Mode transmitter into the neighboring panel memory while the
transmitter is in the alarm state. Do this by shorting the transmitter external contacts (panel
software version 2.0) or leaving the external contact terminals open (panel software version
1.0) and then tripping the transmitter tamper switch. Select a sensor group such as 02 (24hour fixed panic).
What should I measure between terminals 24 (Brown) and 25 (Gray) with the phone line
disconnected from the panel and why?
You should measure 18 to 20VDC between terminals 24 (Brown) and 25 (Gray) with the
panel power on and the phone line disconnected from the panel. This is sufficient voltage to
power the local phones and allow for local system phone operation even with a phone line
failure (no incoming phone voltage).
Do all versions of panel software allow the use of an Interrogator?
No. Only panel software version 2.0 or later supports the use of an interrogator.
How do I know what software version the panel has and how do I get new software?
The software version number is labeled on the large (64-pin) integrated circuit located near
the center of the panel circuit board. You can obtain a software upgrade kit by contacting
ITI Order Entry or Customer Service and ordering ITI part number 15-187.
What should I check when the system displays or announces a battery failure?
If the system displays or announces “System Battery Failure” check the panel backup battery
(a low battery will measure 5.6VDC or less) and/or backup battery charging voltage (should
measure 6.8VDC with the battery disconnected). If no charging voltage exists, check for a
blown (open) “pancake” (automatic resetting) or “barrel” (replaceable) shaped fuse on the
circuit board in series with the battery lead. If the system displays or announces “Sn nn Low
Battery” check the specific wireless sensor battery.
What are the typical voltage readings from terminal 11(Gnd) to terminals 10 (+DC In), 12
(CCS), and 13 (AC) when the line carrier type of AC power transformer is plugged in and the
panel power switch is on and off?
You should measure the following:
Terminals
On Voltage
Off Voltage
11-10
9-12VDC
12-13.5VDC
11-12
5VDC
5VDC
11-13
5VAC
5VAC
