THIS MANUAL IS FURNISHED TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND YOUR
SECURITY SYSTEM AND BECOME PROFICIENT IN ITS OPERATION.
ALL USERS OF YOUR SECURITY SYSTEM SHOULD READ AND FOLLOW
THE INSTRUCTIONS AND PRECAUTIONS IN THIS BOOKLET AND, IF
POSSIBLE, PRACTICE ON THE KEYPAD CONTROL WHILE YOUR
PROFESSIONAL INSTALLER IS ON SITE. FAILURE TO DO SO COULD
RESULT IN THE SECURITY SYSTEM NOT WORKING PROPERLY. THIS
BOOKLET SHOULD BE KEPT IN AN ACCESSIBLE LOCATION FOR THE
LIFE OF THE SECURITY SYSTEM. IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND ANY
PART OF THIS MANUAL YOU SHOULD NOTIFY YOUR INSTALLING
COMPANY SHOWN ON PAGE 1.
The SECURITY CONTROL can be turned on (ARMED) and off (DISARMED) by
entering a 4 or 6 digit code into the Keypad Control, which is similar to a
telephone keypad. If your Security Control has been so programmed, you
may be able to turn on (ARM) your System by simply pressing the [STAY] or
[EXIT] key. The system must always be disarmed using a 4 or 6 digit code.
The LED keypad includes up to 35 lights and a built-in electronic sounder.
These provide specific information relating to the status of the security system
which is described in the booklet. Understanding what the lights and sounds
mean will help you to easily operate your system.
Keep in mind, the level of security you will obtain with this system
relates specifically with two major factors:
1. The quantity, quality and placement of security devices attached to
this system.
2. The knowledge you have of the security system and how that
knowledge is utilized in a weekly test of the complete system.
You should be aware of the following facts when preparing a
safety/security plan for your home/business.
Your security system is an electronic device and is subject to failure or
malfunction. Do not rely on it as your single source of security.
Your system should be tested weekly.
Your system will not work without power.
Warning devices will need to be loud enough, wired correctly, and properly
placed to provide notification of an alarm event.
Smoke and heat detectors may not detect heat and smoke in all situations.
Use qualified security professionals to install and maintain your security
system.
It may be possible to arm the security system without the backup battery
connected. Your periodic test should be done with AC Power removed to
verify the battery is connected and adequately charged.
Care should be taken to plug in and restrain the AC Transformer after
testing.
Please read the following information and instructions carefully
before operating your security control system.

UNDERSTANDING THE LIGHTS
ARMED LIGHT
The armed light is “on” when the system is armed. The armed light is “off”
when it is disarmed. The armed light will flash when there has been an
alarm during the previous arm cycle.
BYPASS LIGHT
The bypass light is “on” when any zone in this keypad’s partition is
bypassed. The zone(s) that is bypassed will also be illuminated. If the
bypass light is “off”, no zones are bypassed.
CANCEL LIGHT
The cancel light will flash during an abort delay time. If a code is entered
followed by the [CANCEL] key while this light is flashing, all abortable
reports will stop the communication process. Note: The abort feature
must be enabled. Entering a code followed by the [CANCEL] key during or
after an alarm report to the central station will cause the cancel light to
come on. It will stay on until the central station has received the cancel
report. Note: The cancel feature must be enabled.
CHIME LIGHT
The chime light is “on” when the chime feature is “on”; “off” otherwise.
EXIT LIGHT
The exit light is “on” during the exit delay. Please note that the light will
flash during the last 10 seconds of the exit delay as a warning that the time
is running out. (The user may want to disarm the system if the exit light is
flashing in order to prevent an alarm. The user may then re-arm the system
and exit before the delay expires.)
FIRE LIGHT
A steady fire light means a fire zone has been faulted. A rapidly flashing fire
light means that a fire zone is in a trouble condition.
Page 5
INSTANT LIGHT
The instant light is “on” when there is no delay on your entry/exit door(s).
Any time the instant light is “on” and the exit delay has expired, the
opening of an entry/exit door will produce an immediate alarm. The
instant light can be toggled on or off by pressing the [Stay] key while the
system is armed. When the instant light is “off”, the entry/exit door(s) is
delayed.
POWER LIGHT
The power light is on if the primary power is on. The power light will flash if
the system has a low battery condition.
READY LIGHT
The ready light is “on” when the system is ready to arm and “flashes” if
ready to force arm. The ready light is off when the system is not ready to
arm because of a zone(s) being faulted.
STAY LIGHT
The stay light is “on” when the all interior (motion detector) zones are
bypassed.
ZONE LIGHT
The zone lights are “off” when everything is normal. A zone light will be “on”
if the zone has been bypassed. If a zone light is “flashing”, that zone is in
alarm or has been faulted. If a zone light is “flashing” rapidly, it means that
the zone is in a trouble condition. Trouble conditions are:
Tamper
Hardware
Low Battery
Loss of Supervision
(A combination of Alarm/Fault and Tamper/Trouble will produce a rapid
“flashing” light for a short period of time, followed by a slow “flashing”
light.)

Panic/Hold-Up activation.
KEYPAD FUNCTIONS
ARMING YOUR SYSTEM IN THE “AWAY” MODE
AWAY is used when the user is away from the premise and wants the interior
protected. Listed below are the steps to arm in the AWAY Mode:
Step 1
Close all protected doors and windows.
• Ready light will be on or flashing when all protected zones and
sensors are secure. NOTE: If any zones are bypassed, a sensor
in that zone can be violated without affecting the ready light.
• The security system will not arm if the ready light is not on or
flashing.
• If the power light is off, you have no AC power. Restore power if
possible. If not, contact your installing company listed on page 1
of this booklet for service.
Page 7
Step 2
• Enter your 4 or 6 digit user code to arm the system.
• The armed and exit lights will illuminate.
• You may now leave the building.
NOTE: The exit light will flash rapidly for the last 10 seconds of the exit delay
as a warning to the user that the exit time is about to expire. The user may
wish to disarm and rearm the system if more time is needed.
ARMING YOUR SYSTEM IN THE “STAY” MODE
STAY is used when the user is inside the premise and wants protection around
the perimeter. Listed below are the steps to arm in the STAY Mode:
Step 1
Close all protected doors and windows.
• Ready light must be on or flashing when all protected zones and
sensors are secure. NOTE: If any zones are bypassed, a sensor in
that zone can be violated without affecting the ready light.
• The security system will not arm if the ready light is not on or
flashing.
• If the power light is off, you have no AC power. Restore power if
possible. If not, contact your installing company listed on page 1 of
this booklet for service.
Step 2 • Enter your 4 or 6 digit user code.
• If “Auto Bypass” is enabled, all interior zones will be bypassed if you
do not leave through a designated entry/exit door. If Auto Bypass is
enabled, omit Step 3.
• When “Auto Instant” is enabled, if you do not leave through a
designated entry/exit door the instant light will illuminate indicating
that the entry/exit doors no longer have an entry delay. If “Auto
Instant” is enabled, omit Step 4.
Step 3 • Press the [STAY] key.
• The stay light will illuminate indicating that all interior zones are
bypassed. (All interior devices will bypass automatically, giving the
user freedom of movement within the interior area.)
• The bypass light will illuminate if any zone(s) are bypassed. If any
zone(s) have been bypassed previously by the user, the light(s)
corresponding to the bypassed zone(s) will illuminate, alerting the
user that a zone(s) may be unprotected and can be faulted without
an alarm.
Step 4
• To toggle from a “delayed entry” mode to an “Instant” mode, press
the [STAY] key again.
• The instant light will illuminate indicating that the entry/exit doors
have no entry delay.

DISARMING THE SYSTEM
When you enter the protected area through one of the designated Entry/Exit
doors, the keypad control will sound a continuous tone for the duration of the
entry delay time, or until you enter a valid code. The red armed light will go
off and the tone will stop. The security system is now DISARMED. If a valid
code is not entered before the end of the entry delay, an alarm will occur.
(NOTE: If the red armed light is flashing during the entry delay, the
alarm system has been activated in your absence. Leave the building
immediately and call your alarm company and/or the police from a
safe location.)
CANCEL / ABORT FEATURE (Optional, see page 1)
The cancel light will flash during an abort delay time. If a code is entered
followed by the [CANCEL] key while this light is flashing, all abortable reports
will stop the communication process. Entering a code followed by the

EMERGENCY EVACUATION PLANS
An emergency evacuation plan should be established for an actual fire alarm
condition. For example, the following steps are recommended by the National
Fire Protection Association and can be used as a guide in establishing an
evacuation plan for your building.
Draw up a floor plan of your home. Show windows, doors, stairs, and
rooftops that can be used for escape. Indicate each occupant's escape routes.
Always keep these routes free from obstruction. Determine two means of
escape from each room. One will be the normal exit from the building. The
other may be a window that opens easily. An escape ladder may have to be
located near the window if there is a long drop to the ground below. Set a
meeting place outdoors for a headcount of the building occupants.
Practice escape procedures. In a home, sleep with bedroom door closed; this
will increase your escape time. If you suspect fire, test the door for heat. If
you think it is safe, brace your shoulder against the door and open it
cautiously. Be ready to slam the door if smoke or heat rush in. Practice
escaping to the outdoors and meeting in an assigned spot. Call the Fire
Department from a neighbor's phone. NOTE: After the installation of your
Security System has been completed, notify your local Fire and Police
Departments to give them your name and address for their records. Early
warning fire detection is best achieved by the installation of fire detection
equipment in all rooms. This equipment should be installed in accordance
with the National Fire Protection Association's Standard 72. For additional
information write the National Fire Protection Association, Batterymarch Park,
