An alarm may be acknowledged by pressing the “ALARM ACKNOWLEDGE” switch. This shall
silence the panel sounder, and change the “ALARM” LED from flashing to steadily lit.
All notification appliances may be silenced by operating the “SIGNAL SILENCE” switch on any
panel in the same region or from any panel programmed as a global annunciator. This shall steadily
light the “SYSTEM SILENCED” LED. If a subsequent alarm is activated, the notification appliances
shall “resound” Until again silenced. Once silenced, all notification appliances may be restored again
by operating the “SIGNAL SILENCE” switch.
