System Information
System Information
mercial System” users manual* for information regarding
the security and control functions.
Your system is typically made up of a main control panel,
one or more display touchpads, and initiating and notification devices such as pull stations, smoke detectors, sirens,
horns, speakers, and strobe lights.
Using the Touchpad Buttons
The touchpad is the primary way to manually operate the
fire system. Below is a description of the touchpad buttons
and what they do.
The system may optionally include security and control features in addition to fire detection annunciation, if allowed
by the fire authorities in your area.
This manual covers only the fire detection and annunciation
features of your system. Please refer to the “Advent Com-

Using Systems with Keyswitches
If a keyswitch is installed with the fire touchpad(s), an
access code is not needed to utilize the touchpad ACKNOWLEDGE, SILENCE, DRILL, and RESET control buttons.
Global Settings
Global system settings specify how the entire system
behaves.
Partitions
The system can be set up by your security consultant to
operate as a multi-partition system. This way the same sys-
tem can be used to protect separate areas such as multi-tenant office buildings, with each area having its own
touchpad, sensors, sirens and so forth. Your system can
operate with up to four or eight (depending on model) separate partitions.
Areas
Choose whether or not to treat partitions as areas. If treated
as areas:
‰ Zones, touchpads, programming options, etc., belong
to areas instead of partitions.
‰ Users may “jump” from one area to another area using
an alphanumeric touchpad.
2
Advent™ Commercial Fire System
Access Codes
‰ The word “partition” will be changed to “area” wherever it is spoken, displayed, or printed.
Global Access Code
There are two types of codes regarding partitions/areas.
Global access codes can be used in all partitions/areas. All
other access codes belong to the partition/area in which they
were added and cannot be used to control other partitions/
areas. When a touchpad is redirected to a new area, any
access code used must be valid in that area to work.
The partition/area of an access code cannot be changed.
However, the same code may be programmed in more than
one partition/area, with each instance of the code representing a unique user number. The panel does not allow the user
to add a duplicate code within a partition/area, globally, or a
user code which is equal to the installer code.
Note
If a partition access code is used to enter the Access
Code Menu, all new codes are for that partition. If a global access code is used, all new codes will be global.
Area Jumping
Steps
Every time a jump occurs, a 4-minute time is started. When
this timer expires, the touchpad jumps back to its original
area automatically. Also, every time the touchpad becomes
inactive, (no menu changes) a shorter, programmable time,
(default 10 seconds), starts. When this timer expires, the
touchpad jumps back to its original area automatically.
If the touchpad is redirected to its original area, no timers
are started because the touchpad is already where it belongs.
To jump between areas:

Global Status and History
If partitions have been turned into areas, the user can also
check for global status and history. Selecting global status
allows the user to view the following:
‰ Whether any alarms are active in any enabled area.
‰ Whether a battery test, LED test, or download is in
progress.
‰ All current system or area troubles.
‰ Status of main power and main battery.

3. Press 75, #.
System displays the global history
then returns to the main menu.
Access Codes
Access codes are numbers that you must enter from a touchpad to operate or make changes to the system. They are
used to limit certain system operations to authorized personnel. Access codes are programmable and can be from
four to six digits long. The system will indicate if and when
an access code is required to perform any desired function.
When ENTER YOUR CODE is displayed, enter the access code
using the touchpad buttons located behind the touchpad
door.
The system automatically has one access code in each partition/area for the primary user. It is the primary access code.
You can change the primary access code, but you cannot
delete it. In addition to this primary access code you can
create secondary access codes for other users.
Adding Access Codes
Add an access code to the system whenever you want to
give other authorized personnel use of the system.
Access Code Guidelines
‰ Do not use sequential numbers (1234, 5678, etc.) that
can be easily defeated by unauthorized users.
‰ Do not use birthdate/year combinations which others
may know.
‰ Do not use phone number sequences which others may
know.
‰ Keep a separate log of all programmed user codes and
their user names in a secured location.

Advent™ Commercial Fire System
Each access code has an authority level which determines
the authority the user has to execute certain actions. There
are three pre-defined authorities and eight configurable
authorities.
Installer Authority - Can enter program mode (if partitions/areas are disarmed), gain remote access, do phone test,
do installer zone test, initiate a downloader call, review status and event history, control lights and devices, change
installer code, change arming level within one hour of exiting program mode. Cannot change schedules or access
codes (except own), bypass zones, extend arming levels,
change arming levels except as stated above. Installer code
is permanent.
Primary Authority - Primary user for that partition/area.
There is exactly one primary code per partition/area. This
code is permanent and cannot be restricted. Can do everything except enter program mode, do installer zone test, initiate a downloader call. Primary codes are permanent.
Full Authority - Can do everything the primary user can do
except add/delete/change/list codes of equal or higher authority.
Authority 1 to 8 - Configurable authorities. In general,
authority 1 should be the highest of the configurable authorities
and authority 8 the lowest.
Authority Level Definitions
The three pre-defined and eight configurable authorities
allow you to carry out a specific set of actions which require
an access code and deny others. Whenever one of these
actions is requested from a touchpad, the panel prompts you
for an access code and determines whether the entered code
has sufficient authority. If not, the panel responds with
INVALID AUTHORITY.
When using a keyswitch to request an arming level change,
no access code is needed and the action is associated with a
zone, not a user.

Preventing Accidental Alarms
This section describes how to avoid the surprise and annoyance of accidental alarms.
Tips for Avoiding Accidental Alarms
‰ Become familiar with all system devices and how they
operate.
‰ Check the location of your smoke detectors. Keep in
mind that smoke detectors can be activated by some
steam, dust, and gases.
Manually Resetting Smoke
Detectors
Manually resetting a smoke detector following a test or
alarm resets tripped detectors. This procedure is rarely
needed because smoke detectors are automatically reset
when an alarm is acknowledged. Do not reset smoke detectors until the location of the activated detector is determined
and the smoke source is eliminated.
To manually reset tripped smoke detectors:
Steps
Response
1. Turn the access keyswitch
on, (if applicable).
2. Open the touchpad door
and press the RESET (target) button.
Tripped detectors are reset
