Operating Your System
Thank
for choosing the
Security
When properly installed and maintained, the system will provide years of reliable operation. It
should be noted however, that no security system provides total protection over
life or property. The following is a list of precautions that should be adhered
to:

Please read this manual entirely and keep it in a secure place. If you have any
questions, contact your security representative right away.
The system must be tested at least once per week to ensure proper operation. Contact
your security representative for testing procedures and to schedule a regular maintenance program.
If the system is malfunctioning, have service performed as soon as possible and only
by qualified professionals.
If alterations are made to the building’s electrical system, be sure that changes are not
made that could affect uninterruptable power to the control panel.
If service is performed to the telephone system, test the system to be sure that
communication to the central station is not interfered with.
No security system can detect intrusion or other emergency conditions in all
circumstances. Be sure to have your security representative instruct you on areas of
vulnerability and recommendations for future upgrades to the system.
Motion detectors are designed to detect specific types of motion within a defined area.
Intruders cannot be detected in obstructed areas such as behind walls and closed doors.
Be sure that you fully understand exactly what areas are and are not protected and under
what conditions (temperature and time variations, etc.).
Smoke detection devices cannot detect all types of fire, nor do they perform under
circumstances. Have your security representative explain the limitations of the fire
system to you and your family. Have smoke detectors cleaned and tested on a regular
basis.
Security systems rely upon AC as a primary power source. When AC fails, the control
will be powered by a standby battery. For this reason, the standby battery should be
checked and replaced by a qualified service technician at regular intervals.
The system is capable of being armed with AC power absent. The system could then
fail if the battery voltage falls below the acceptable range, before AC power is restored.
It should be noted that it is possible to arm the system with the standby battery
disconnected.
If the control station “Trouble” light is ever on, contact your security representative
immediately to determine the nature of the “Trouble” condition.
If upon returning to the building it is discovered that an alarm has occurred, DO NOT
ENTER THE PREMISES. Get to the nearest telephone immediately and contact the
proper authorities.
Be sure to inform your neighbors that a security system has been installed. Also explain
the meanings of the various audible signals and ask them to contact the appropriate
authorities upon activation of an alarm.
U.L. requires audible burglar alarms to be provided by a bell and fire alarms to be
provided with a horn. For combination burglar and fire alarm systems, the sounder will
emit a steady tone for fire alarms and a pulsing tone for burglar alarms. The fire alarm
signal takes priority over the burglar bell.
U.L. Requirements: Exit time may not exceed 60 seconds. Entrance time may not
exceed 45 seconds. Cut-off time for siren/bell cannot be less than 4 minutes.
Your system is programmed as follows:
Exit Time = s e c o n d s

ARMING
Before the control can be armed, all of the intrusion zones must be secure as
indicated by the green READY indicator. If the READY indicator is off, one or
more zones are faulted. The indicator(s) corresponding to the faulted zone(s) will
light. Use the pull out zone I.D. card on the control station to determine the areas of
protection which are assigned to each of the six (6) zones, thencheckthe appropriate
doors and windows to see that they are closed.
1. Verify that the
indicator is on.
2. Enter your User Code.
3. The control station will begin beeping and the red ARMED indicator will blink
to indicate that arming will take place after the exit time expires. (The ARMED
indicator will light steady after the system arms).
4. Leave the building immediately.
The control is programmed with an exit delay time which allows a specific amount
of time to leave through any delay defined intrusion detection zone without causing
an alarm. Be sure that you have been informed on routes to enter and exit from
without causing an alarm. If too much time is taken to exit, the beeping tone will
change to a steady tone, indicating the start of entry delay. Disarm the control and
start over to avoid a false alarm.
Your security system is divided into two areas of protection:
1. PERIMETER-Thefirstlineofdefense. Consistsofoneormorezoneswhich
detect intrusion through doors and windows.
2. INTERIOR The backup or second line of defense. Consists of one or more
zones that detect intruders that have already entered the building. Interior
detection devices usually consist of motion detection devices, interior door
contacts, and under carpet sensors, designed to surprise
intruder.
prior to arming the control, you may first choose to turn off the interior protection,
allowing free movement within the building when armed.
3
Turning Off the
Zones and Entrance Delay
Control station key 4 may be used to turn the interior zones off prior to arming. This
will allow the system to alarm instantly if the entrance door is opened, while armed.
1. Press the 4 key and hold for three seconds.
2. When interior defined zones are turned off, the corresponding Zone indicators
will flash. The flashing will stop 30 seconds after the system is armed.
3. Arm the system by entering your User Code.
Note: Upon disarming, the interior zones
your Installer has altered
feature through programming.
Automatic Interior Off/Delay Off
Your system may have been programmed to automatically turn the interior zones
off if you arm and do not leave the premises before the exit delay time expires. The
entrance delay may also be programmed to automatically turn off at this time. When
the system is disarmed, the interior and delay
return to their normal on or off
state. See your security representative for details.
Two
Arming
Your system may have been programmed with an abbreviated arming feature.
When this feature is enabled, only the first two digits of your User Code will be
required to arm the system and perform other features. Disarming however, will still
require the entire code sequence.
If the READY indicator is off, one or more detection devices such as a door or
window has been left open. The system cannot be armed. One or more of the six
ZONE indicators will also be lighted indicating the area of protection that is at fault.
Use the pull out zone I.D. card on
control station to define the area of protection
assigned to each zone.
NOTE: If an attempt Is made to arm the system
the READY light off,
a three second error tone
be
to alert you that the system did
not arm.
DISARMING
Your system is programmed with one or more entrance delay zones which allow
time to enter the premises without causing an alarm. Each delay door may be
programmed with a different entry time. Be sure to check with your installer.
Note: If your system has the
Follower” feature enabled, all
interior designated zones automatically become delay zones whenever
you first enter through a delay zone. This allows you to walk In front of
motion detectors on the way to the control station after you enter.
1. After entering the premises through a delay zone, the control station will sound
a continuous tone to remind you to disarm the system.
CAUTION: If the ALARM
is lighted, an alarm has occurred.
Leave the premises immediately and go to the nearest phone to contact
the appropriate authorities. Do not
into the premises.
2. Enter your User Code.
3. The red armed light should turn off indicating that the system is disarmed.
Testing the Burglar and Fire Alarm Audibles
UL listed burglar and fire alarm systems which have separate audible
sounding devices require a weekly test. Notify the Central Station or the
appropriate authorities before and after conducting the test. Use the
following procedures.
Burglar alarm
1. Arm the system by following the instructions on the preceding pages.
2. Upon expiration of the exit delay open a non-delayed door, window, or
motion detector. The sounding device will activate. To reset, follow the
instructions on disarming the system.
Fire alarm
1. Follow the procedure for activation of the auxiliary alarms as outlined on
page of this manual.
5
ALARM CONDITIONS
Whenever an alarm occurs, the ALARM indicator will light, the audible alarm will
sound (if applicable), and the control
communicate with the central station (if
this option was purchased).
NOTE: If upon returning to the premises it discovered that an alarm has
occurred,
NOT ENTER THE PREMISES. Leave immediately and go to
the nearest phone and contact the appropriate authorities.
To reset the alarm:
1. Enter your User Code to reset the alarm.
2.
The ALARM indicator will remain lighted.
If the alarm was activated through one of the six “hardwire” zones, the corresponding ZONE indicator(s) will also be lighted, identifying the specific area
that was violated. Use the zone I.D. card to determine the area of protection
which corresponds to each zone.
If the alarm was activated manually by pressing one of the emergency keys, no
zone indicators will be lighted.
Press the
key to extinguish the ALARM indicator after determining the
type of alarm that occurred and area of protection involved.
A history of the alarm condition will be stored in the control’s memory and may be
recalled at any time. See “Special
for more information.
If for any reason a false alarm occurs, perform the following steps:
1. Enter your User Code.
2. The armed light should turn off.
3. Notify the appropriate authorities of the alarm immediately.
4. Press the
key to extinguish the ALARM light. Use the zone I.D. card to
detemine the area of protection assigned to each zone.
6
THE EMERGENCY KEYPAD PANIC ALARMS
Your system may have been purchased with up to three emergency keypad panic
alarms. These may be used to activate an alarm in the event of a Fire, Hold-up, or
other emergency condition, as programmed by your installer. Each alarm is
activated by pressing the appropriate emergency panic key (located below the
numeric keys). Each alarm may be audible or silent. It may also be programmed
to report the condition to a central monitoring station. Check with your security representative to determine the characteristics of your system.
Each of the three emergency panic keys (from left to right: A, B, and C) can initiate
a specific type of alarm as programmed and labeled by your installer.
To activate an Emergency Alarm:
1. Press the appropriate emergency panic key. The Emergency Alarm will
activate.

SPECIAL FEATURES
The CHIME mode allows audible monitoring of zones while
system is
disarmed. When the CHIME mode is active, the control station sounder will beep
whenever a perimeter burglar defined zone (door, window, etc.) indicator is opened.
For example, the CHIME feature will cause the control station to beep two times
whenever the front door has been opened. Many businesses use this type of signal
to announce that a customer has entered. In a residential application, the CHIME
is useful for monitoring opening of doors by children.
To Turn CHIME On
1. The system must be disarmed.
2. Press the “6” key and hold for three seconds. The control station will beep three
times to signify that the CHIME has been turned on.
3. The control station will now beep two times when any burglar zone is opened.
Note: The CHIME feature does not annunciate

1. Press the
times to signify that the CHIME has been turned off.
Your system may be programmed for quick arming even with one or more zones
faulted. In this condition, when an attempt is made to arm the system with faulted
zones (READY light off), the control station will emit a three second error tone,
indicating that the system refused to arm. If a second attempt to arm is made within
eight seconds after the tone quits, all faulted zones will automatically be bypassed
and the system will Force Arm. Depending upon how your system was
grammed at the time of installation, force armed zones will either be permanently
bypassed until disarming or may return to operation when or if they become
operable.
8
The bypass key is used to bypass selected zones in your system. A bypassed zone
will NOT be capable of activating an alarm as it is temporarily removed from your
system. Bypassing (also referred to as shunting) is most commonly used to allow
free movement of an area (zone or group of zones) while arming the rest of the
system or to temporarily remove a zone or zones that require service allowing partial
use of the system until repaired. When zones are bypassed, the corresponding
ZONE indicators flash to indicate that they have been removed from operation. The
flashing will cease 30 seconds after the exit delay expires when the system is armed.

3. To simplify testing, all zones should first be secured (READY light ON). If it
is not possible to secure all zones prior to beginning the walk test mode, please
note that the control station will beep continuously as a result of the non-secure
zones. This will eliminate the advantages of the audible walk test mode,
although the zone indicator lights may still be relied upon for testing.

FIRE DETECTION
Your system may or may not include fire detection, depending upon what options
were purchased, and the local codes and regulations for your area. Fire alarm
systems are active 24 hours a day and cannot be turned off.
fire systems require
regular testing and maintenance. Common household dust build-up in smoke
detectors can cause them to false alarm or fail in a time of need. Consult your
security representative for a scheduled maintenance program.
1. The red ALARM indicator will be lighted and the alarm sounder will be
sounding steadily. The ZONE indicator(s) corresponding to the violated Fire
Zone(s) will also be lighted. If the alarm was activated manually through the
control station emergency panic zone, no ZONE indicators will be lighted.
2. Press the * key to silence the control station and the audible alarm.
3. Notify the alarm monitoring service or the proper authorities immediately
if the alarm was unintentional.
4. The red ALARM light will remain on.
5. To clear the alarm, enter a valid User Code.
6. If the TROUBLE indicator lights, a Fire Supervisory/Trouble condition may
exist. Consult your Security Representative to define the trouble condition.
Many smoke detectors “latch on” and illuminate a built in indicator when triggered.
This feature allows you to determine which detector caused the alarm. If a smoke
detector remains latched after resetting a fiie alarm activation, the yellow TROUBLE
indicator will be lighted.
1. Check all smoke detectors for the presence of a latched condition to determine
which detector triggered the alarm. If all detectors appear normal, a wire may
be broken or shorted. Call for service.
2. Press Key 7 and hold for three seconds. The system will attempt to reset the
smoke detectors. If the smoke detector(s) did not reset, the control station will
continue to indicate the TROUBLE condition. Call your security representative for service.
12
Emergency Evacuation Plan
Preparation and education are of prime importance in the prevention of fire. An
emergency evacuation
should be established BEFORE an emergency situation
arises. Your system may or may not contain
detection and notification
equipment. Be sure to have your installer explain and that you fully understand
exactly what your system consists of. Use the following steps in establishing an
emergency evacuation plan:
1. Evaluate all possible escape routes from your home and draw a floor plan.
2.
Select two exit escape routes from each
3. Provide emergency escape ladders for rooms above the first floor. Check
the ladders to be sure that they will reach the ground.
4.
Draw a rough sketch of your escape plan so that everyone is familiar with it.
5. Practice your escape plan to assure that everyone knows what they have to
do in an emergency situation.
6. Establish a meeting place outside where your family is to report.
7.
Advise the local fire authority if you have installed a fire alarm system.
Discuss the
wlth all residents:
1.
Familiarity with alarm signals.
2.
Status of bedroom doors.
3. Testing of door during a fire and use of alternate escape routes if HOT to
touch.
4. Crawling and holding breath techniques during a fire.
5. Escape FAST, DO NOT STOP for packing.
6. Emphasize that no one is to return to a burning building.
13
The purpose of heat and smoke detectors is to detect a fire in its earliest stages and
sound an alarm, giving occupants more time to exit the premises before smoke
reaches a dangerous level.
Cl KNOW FIRE HAZARDS
No detection device can protect life in all situations; therefore, safeguards should
be taken to avoid such potentially dangerous situations as smoking in bed, leaving
children home alone, and cleaning with flammable liquids such as gasoline.
The best fire protection is minimizing
hazards through proper storage of
materials and good housekeeping practices. Careless use of combustible materials
andelectricalappliances or overloading of electrical outlets are major causes of fire.
Explosive and fast burning materials must be eliminated from the home.
IN CASE OF FIRE
Leave immediately! Do not stop to pack or search for valuables. In heavy smoke,
hold your breath and stay low-crawl if necessary. The clearest air usually is at the
floor. If you have to go through a closed door, carefully feel the door and door knob
to see if undue heat is present. If relatively cool, brace your foot against the bottom
slightly. If there is
of hot air, slam the door quickly and latch it. Unvented fire
will build up considerable pressure. Be sure that all the household realizes this
danger.
Use your neighbors phone or street fire alarm box. The job of extinguishing the
should be left to the professionals. Too many unforeseen things can occur when
inexperienced people try to extinguish a fue.
BE PREPARED
Perform
drills regularly. Use them to assure recognition of an alarm signal. For
your protection, simulate different circumstances (smoke the hall, living room,
haveeveryonereacttothesituation.
a floorplanandshow
from each room. It is important that children be instructed carefully. Their tendency
is to hide in a crisis.
It is imperative that one meeting place outside the home be established. You should
insist that everyone meet there during an alarm. This will eliminate the tragedy of
someone re-entering the house for a missing member who is
safe.
If you have small children and/or invalids residing in your household, you can help
yourfnedepartmentby placingdecalson bedroom windows. Mostfiredepartments
supply the decals.
Become familiar with the distinctive sounds of your Fire alarm and Burglar alarm
signals.

Smoke Detector Location
Smoke detectors should be installed in accordance with
Association
Standard 74.
The following is from NFPA 74: Smoke detectors shall installed outside of each
separate sleeping area in the immediate vicinity of the bedrooms and on each
additional story of the family living unit including basement and excluding crawl
spaces and unfinishedattics (see illustration below). For family living units with one
or more split levels (i.e., adjacent levels with with less than one full story separation
between levels), a smoke detector required by the above shall suffice for an adjacent
lower level, including basements.
EXCEPTION: Where there is an intervening door between one level and the
adjacent lower level, a smoke detector shall be installed on the lower level.
Ceiling mounted smoke alarms should be located in the center of the room or hall,
not less than 4 inches from any wall. When the detector is mounted on a wall, the
top of the detector should be 4 to 12 inches from the ceiling.
Do not install smoke alarms where normal ambient temperatures are above
or below
Also, do not locate smoke detectors in front of air conditioners, heating registers,
or other locations where normal air circulation will keep smoke from entering the
detector.
Heat from a fire rises to the ceiling, spreads out across the ceiling surface and begins
to bank down from the ceiling. The comer where the ceiling and wall meet is an air
space into which heat has difficulty in penetrating. In most
this ‘dead’ air space
measures about 4 inches (O.lm) along the ceiling from the comer and 4 inches
(O.lm) down the
as shown in the illustration below. Heat or smoke detectors
should not be placed in this ‘dead’ air space.” (See illustration on next page).
