Intrusion Alarm Systems | B4512 Control Panels
B4512 Control Panels
The B4512 Control Panel integrates intrusion and
residential fire, providing one simple user interface for
both systems. The B4512 provides up to 28
individually identified points that can be split into 2
areas. The control panel includes a built-in Ethernet
port for IP network communications, and is
compatible with modules that send events to selected
public switched telephone network (PSTN), IP
network, or cellular network destinations through four
programmable route groups.
With the B4512, you can monitor doors, windows, and
motion within areas like showrooms or those that hold
inventory. Each user can have a personalized
passcode, a wireless keyfob, and a credential to
control the system.

functions with one easy command. Users can activate
custom functions with a keypad, keyfob, token, or
card, or the control panel can activate a function in
reaction to a faulted point, or automatically through a
scheduled event (SKED).

(NFPA 720)
• Watch mode
• Scheduled events (SKEDs) perform several functions,
such as turn on (arm) the system, turn off (disarm)
the system, bypass and unbypass points, and control
User interface
• Supervision of up to 8 keypads
• Custom keypad text is fully programmable through
• Full function menu including custom functions
• Authority by area and 32 character name for each
• 14 custom authority levels control user’s authority to
change, add, or delete passcodes to disarm or bypass
areas; and to start system tests
• Programmable primary and secondary language by
user and keypad; select from English, Spanish,
French, and Portuguese
Area programming offers a wide selection of different
system configurations. Make area arming conditional
on other areas (master or associate), if desired. You
can configure any area for perimeter and interior
arming, not requiring a separate area for this function.
For higher security applications, the Area Re-Arm
feature guarantees that areas are always rearmed, and
are disarmed for no longer than a specific,
configurable, amount of time (for example, service
Custom functions
For added convenience, the installer can program
custom functions that allow customers to complete
complex tasks with one simple action. For example, a
custom function can bypass a group of points and arm
the system, allowing the user to perform these
• Two-man rule. Requires two people with two unique
passcodes to be present at the time of opening.
• Early ambush. Allows users to verify that the facility is
safe by requiring two passcodes. The control panel
sends a duress event if the user does not enter the
passcode a second time after inspecting the
• Dual authentication. Requires two forms of
identification before processing certain system
commands, including turning off the system and
opening doors. A standard system user must have a
passcode, a credential (token or card), and
appropriate command authority permissions assigned
in the door and keypad’s assigned area.
Easy exit control
The control panel changes from one On (armed) state
to another without turning off (disarming) the system.
For example, if you change the state from Part On
(Perimeter Arm) to All On (Master Arm), the control
panel complies and reports the change. Easy Exit
Control reduces the number of keystrokes, simplifying
system operation.
Programmable passcode-controlled menu list
Passcode-controlled shortcuts provide users only with
the options and information pertinent to them,
simplifying system operation.
Flexible control
The system provides the flexibility to choose added
convenience or high security. For example, you can
restrict to a keypad's immediate local area turning on
(arming) and turning off (disarming) the system with a
passcode, even if the user has access to other areas.
This is particularly useful for high security areas,
where a user may have access to the area, but would
prefer to only turn off (disarm) the area individually
rather than with the rest of the system. Another option
is to program the system to turn off all areas the user
can access from any keypad.
Monitor Delay/Delayed Response
Create a special point index that delays the reaction of
a point for a specified time (up to 1 hour in minutes
and seconds). This delay provides time for the
specified condition to reset before activating any
annunciation. The system can annunciate locally and
send a report, if desired. When the system is armed,
the point can respond like a normal point – providing
dual functionality. Use this feature to ensure that
perimeter doors have not been propped open, or to
monitor critical areas such as computer rooms and
safes, for example.
3 | B4512 Control Panels
System users
The system supports up to 32 users. Each user can
have a personalized passcode, a wireless keyfob, and a
credential to control the system. User passcodes
contain three to six digits. You can assign passcodes
to one of 14 customized authority levels in each area
and can be restricted to operate only during certain
times. Programmable primary and secondary language
by user and keypad; select from English, Spanish,
French, and Portuguese.
Communication formats
The control panel prioritizes and sends reports to four
route groups. Network communication uses the
Modem4 communication format, whereas phone
communication uses Contact ID or Modem4
communications formats. Each group has a
programmable primary and backup destination.
The control panel provides flexible communications for
most central stations with reporting capabilities such
Individual point numbers
Opening or closing reports by user and area number
Remote programming attempts
Diagnostic reports
IP communication
The control panel uses on-board Ethernet (IP)
connection (the on-board Ethernet port is excluded on
“E” versions) to communicate with a Conettix D6600
or a Conettix D6100IPv6 Communications Receiver/
The control panel can optionally communicate with a
Conettix D6600 or a Conettix D6100IPv6
Communications Receiver/Gateway using a B426
Conettix Ethernet Communication Module or a
Conettix Plug-in Cellular Communicator (B440/B441/
Using Conettix IP communication offers a secure path
that includes anti-replay/anti-substitution features and
provides enhanced security with AES 256-bit
encryption (using Cipher Block Chaining (CBC)).
The control panel supports Domain Name System
(DNS) for both remote programming and central
station communication. DNS provides ease of use,
eliminating the need to use static IP addresses as your
reporting destination, and accommodates a simple
solution for central station disaster recovery. IP Setup
is available via the keypad Installer menu and the
remote programming software, eliminating the need to
use complicated internet programming tools such as
ARP and Telnet. The control panel supports both IPv6
and IPv4 networks.
For more information on the enhanced
communications capabilities, refer to RPS Help or the
control panel's Program Entry Guide.
Communication paths
The control panel accommodates up to four separate
phone and four separate network paths to the central
station receiver. When resetting alarms or turning a
system on and off, the user is identified by name and
Personal notification
The control panel can send text messages and emails
for personal notification over Ethernet or using a
cellular communicator. You can configure up to 16
destinations using a combination of cellular phone
numbers and email addresses. The control panel sends
notifications in the user’s programmed primary
Firmware updates
The system allows remote firmware updates through
Remote Programming Software (RPS) using the RPS
Firmware Update Wizard. The Firmware Update Wizard
uses the on-board USB connection or the on-board
Ethernet (IP) connection (the on-board Ethernet port
is excluded on “E” versions) to transmit firmware
The control panel can optionally receive firmware
updates from RPS using a B426 Conettix Ethernet
Communication Module or a Conettix Plug-in Cellular
Communicator (B440/B441/B442/B443). Notice!
Cellular firmware updates require more time than
Ethernet updates and carrier data rates apply.
• Control panel updates. Remotely update the control
panel firmware for easy feature enhancements
without replacing ROM chips.
• Module update support. Remotely update the
firmware on connected SDI2 modules for easy feature
enhancements without visiting each individual
A wide variety of input options
Each point:
• Accommodates normally‑open (NO) and
normally‑closed (NC) devices with end‑of‑line (EOL)
resistor supervision.
• Accepts programming for fire, gas, fire supervisory, or
intrusion applications.
• Supports hardwired and wireless devices.
• Supports IP cameras by Bosch as point sources.
Security and fire detection
The control panel provides eight on-board points, and
up to 20 additional off-board points (depending on
model and expansion interfaces). You can program
individual points to monitor some types of burglar
alarms, fire alarms, and supervision devices.
Event log
The event log stores local and reported events. The
event log includes information such as time, date,
event, area, point, and user. View the event log from a
keypad or use RPS to remotely retrieve event
information. When the event log reaches a
programmed threshold of stored events, it can send an
optional report to a receiver.

The control panel offers:
• Five scheduled events with up to 25 different
• Two opening windows and two closing windows
• Two user windows
• Day-of-week, date-of-month, or holiday only schedules
• One holiday schedule of 366 days (leap year)
Installers can perform limited programming on-site
with a keypad (critical parameters; such as account
IDs, central station and RPS IP addresses and phone
numbers, reporting formats, and more). They can also
do full programming on-site or remotely (attended or
unattended) with RPS. A programmable system
passcode prevents unauthorized remote programming.
Keypads and RPS offer diagnostic help for monitoring
and troubleshooting. The diagnostics features allow
you to view the status of the on-board Ethernet
connection, plug-in communicators, and SDI2 devices,
including inputs, outputs, and RF. The features provide
the status of the control panel and its connected
devices, such as firmware version, power, and missing
conditions. View the status of each area. Diagnostics
also include connection data for connected wireless
and Ethernet devices.
