Russound ISK2, ComPoint Advanced Keypad Product Manual
Installation and Trim
The ISK2 Keypad is designed to install in a standard US
electrical plastic wall box with an internal volume of at
least 18 cubic inches (295 cm3). The keypad occupies a
single gang and accepts a Decora® wall plate. For the
best accessibility, viewability, and microphone reception,
we recommend installing the keypads at a standard thermostat height of 58 to 60 inches (1.5 m). This may vary
according to personal preferences or requirements.
ComPoint system components interconnect with CAT-5
cable. Run CAT-5 from the hub location to every keypad
location. If the ComPoint system is sharing speakers
with an audio system, loop the speaker cables through
the keypad locations. If dedicated speakers are being
used, run the speaker cables to the keypads.
cable to the keypad is short, a jumper will suffice. If the
CAT-5 is long, use a resistor instead to reduce the load
on the keypad amplifier.
Be sure to observe correct polarity when connecting the
speaker wires. The standard color code for 4-conductor
speaker cable is as follows:
Wire Color
Left +
Left –
Right –
Right +
When running CAT-5 and speaker cables, avoid running
them near AC power wiring. If you have to run the
cables parallel to electrical wiring, space the cables at
least two feet (0.6 m) from the AC power lines.

The keypad also has an 8-pole screw-terminal connector
for accessing the internal speaker relay. The speakers
connect to the output terminals. The input connectors
are used for connecting an audio system amplifier when
it shares the speakers with the keypad.
Note: Both speaker output channels must be connected,
since they are wired in series. If you are using only one
dedicated speaker, connect the speaker to one channel
and connect a shorting jumper or a 2-watt power resistor of up to 8 ohms to the other channel. If the CAT-5

The ISK2 Keypad allows you to perform the following
• System-wide paging
• Point-to-point intercom
• Call and reply to door station
• Door strike release
• Listen to another zone
It also allows you to put the zone in Do Not Disturb
mode to prevent communications and doorbell chimes
from being heard in the room where it’s installed.
To send a page, press and hold the Talk key and speak
anytime Page appears in the keypad display. Release
the key when you’re done speaking.
If the display shows a zone label instead of Page, first
use the Next or Previous key to select Page before you
press the Talk key.
If the system is busy when you press the Talk key, the
display indicates Busy and the Talk key blinks red for 7
When you press the Talk key, all keypads sound a single
ping tone to announce your message. They also indicate
which zone you’re sending from by showing your zone’s
label on their displays. The zone indication remains for
30 seconds after you release the Talk key.
The keypads sound a double ping when you release the
Talk key. This lets others know they can reply to the
page within 30 seconds.
To reply to a page from another zone within the 30-second limit, press and hold the Talk key and speak. Your
reply will be heard only in the zone that sent the page.
Paging is not allowed when there is a door station call,
intercom session, or other page in progress. Also, a
door station call takes precedence over a page and thus
interrupts a page in progress.
To talk with someone in another zone, first use the Next
or Previous key to select that zone. When the desired
zone label appears in the display, press and hold the
Talk key and speak. Release the Talk key when you’re
done speaking.
If the system is busy when you try to start an intercom
session, the display indicates Busy and the Talk key
blinks red for 7 seconds.
If the selected zone is in Do Not Disturb mode, the
display alternately shows the zone label and DND at 1second intervals and the DND key blinks rapidly for 7
When you press the Talk key on the sending keypad, the
receiving keypad sounds a single ping and shows the
sending zone’s label on its display.
When you release the Talk key, both the sending and
receiving keypads sound a single ping to signal the person receiving can reply hands free within 7 seconds.
After 7 seconds, the keypads sound a double ping to
signal the end of the hands-free reply period.
To reply to an intercom from another zone before the
double ping, just speak. After the double ping, press and
hold the Talk key while you speak. You can reply as long
as the sending zone’s label appears on the display.
An intercom session is not allowed when there is a
page, door station call, or other intercom session in
progress. Also, a door station call takes precedence
and thus interrupts an intercom session in progress.
Door station call
The door station call function gives you the convenience
of answering the door from any keypad.
When a visitor rings the doorbell from a door station, all
keypads indicate the calling door station for 15 seconds
by showing the door station label on their displays.
To reply to a door station call within the 15 seconds,
press and hold the Talk key on a keypad and speak.
Release the Talk key when you’re done speaking.
Please note that you must use the Talk key when replying to a door station call. For your privacy, ComPoint
does not allow a hands-free reply to the door station.
When you release the Talk key, the door station sounds
a single ping to let the caller know they can answer your
reply hands free within 7 seconds. After the 7 seconds,
the door station pings twice to indicate the end of the
After 15 seconds, you can reconnect by using the Next
or Previous key to select the door station and then
pressing the Talk key to start a new intercom session.
This does not ring the doorbell.
Door strike release
If your ComPoint system includes an optional ISDR1
Door Strike Release Module, you can activate it from a
keypad to unlock the door.
To activate the Door Strike Release Module during a
door station call, press and hold both the Next and
Previous keys simultaneously for 3 seconds. The module
then activates and the keypad confirms activation with
an audible buzz tone through the speakers.
To activate the Door Strike Release Module when there
is no door station call in progress, first use the Next or
Previous key to select the door station, then press and
hold both keys for 3 seconds.
Listen to another zone
You can use your ComPoint system to continuously listen to any single zone from one or more other zones.
This is done by first turning on a keypad microphone in
the zone you want to listen to, then selecting that zone
on one or more other keypads.
To turn on a keypad’s microphone, use the Next or
Previous key to select that keypad’s own zone label. The
Talk key lights up red and after 2 seconds the display
shows MicOn to show the keypad microphone is active.
To listen to the zone with the active microphone from
other keypads, use the Next or Previous key to select
that zone on the other keypads. Each display alternately
shows the zone label and Listn to indicate the system is
in Listen mode.
To exit Listen mode, press any key other than Volume
Up or Volume Down in the zone you’re listening to.
Listen mode cannot be disabled from any other zone.
Other communication events have priority over Listen
mode and thus interrupt listening to another zone.
Do Not Disturb mode
You can prevent pages, intercom sessions, door station
calls, and doorbell chimes from being heard in any zone
by using Do Not Disturb (DND) mode.
To turn on DND mode, press and release the DND key.
The DND key lights up red to indicate DND mode is on.
To cancel DND mode, press any key other than Volume
Up or Volume Down. The red DND light shuts off.
Combined Listen and DND modes
You can use DND mode in a zone you are listening to.
This way the zone you’re listening to won’t be disturbed
by the doorbell or communication events.
To set up a zone for listening and DND, first select that
zone’s label on its keypad. Then press and release the
DND key.
The Talk key and DND key light up red and the display
shows Listn to indicate the keypad’s microphone is on
and the zone is also in DND mode.
