SECURITY SYSTEM OPERATION
Disarming the Security System and Silencing Alarms
Before going any further, you should know how to disarm your security system in the event that the alarm sounds. Turning the system OFF disarms the burglar alarm, resets the fire and emergency alarms, and silences all sirens and sounders.
Press the OFF key.
Now enter your four digit Code.
1 1 1 1
That's all there is to it.
Watch the display. The top line will read "DISARM" - The bottom line will read "ENTER CODE", indicating that your option is to enter your code number. For each digit that you press, an "X" will appear indicating that the key has been pressed.
After the four-digit code has been successfully entered, the console will beep once to indicate that you have correctly disarmed the system. The console LED will be set to green, and the display will return to the normal top-level system display.
If an incorrect code is entered, the console will beep three times and display
" *** INVALID CODE *** ".
Re-enter your code.
In the event that you make a mistake, press the OFF key again, and then enter your master code again.
Practice disarming your system until you are comfortable with this procedure.
¾ Panic, Tamper, and Fire zones are always armed, as are the Emergency buttons on the console.
¾ In the event that the alarm has been activated, the menu keys and the arrow keys are locked out. You must silence the alarm using the OFF, DAY, NIGHT, or AWAY keys.
Arming the Security System
Now that you know how to disarm the system, here's how to arm the security system. The security menu is used to arm and disarm the security system. To enter the security menu, from the top-level display, press the 2 key on the console keypad. The console should display:
0=OFF 1=DAY 2=NIGHT
0 = OFF
5=DAY INST 6=NIGHT DLY
The OFF key disarms the security system, resets the fire and emergency alarms, and silences all sirens and sounders.
1 = DAY
The DAY mode is intended for use when someone will occupy the house or business that is being protected. In the Day mode, the perimeter zones (doors and windows) are armed; however, interior motion detectors and interior traps are not armed so that you may move about freely inside. In the Day mode, there will be an Entry Delay on the Entry-Exit zone, so that someone arriving can turn off the alarm before it sounds.
2 = NIGHT
The NIGHT mode is used when you are asleep and everyone in your household is at home. In the Night mode, your doors, windows, and non-sleeping area (i.e. downstairs) motion detectors are armed. In the Night mode, there is no entry delay. The alarm system sounder will be activated immediately if any door, window, or non-sleeping area (motion detector) is tripped.
3 = AWAY
Use the AWAY mode when you leave your house and no one is home. All doors, windows, and motion detectors are armed. All zones have an Exit Delay so that you will have time to leave and close the door after you arm the system. The system will be fully armed after the Exit Delay. There is an Entry Delay on the Entry-Exit zones in the Away mode, so that you will have time to turn the system off when you return through your door.
Note that the Entry Delay only applies if you come in through an Entry-Exit zone. If someone attempts to climb into a window, or if an interior zone is tripped before the Entry-Exit zone, the alarm will be activated immediately. If you do enter through an
Entry-Exit zone first, then the other zones are disabled during the Entry Delay, in case you have to cross through another zone to get to your console (an interior motion detector, for example).
4 = VACATION
This mode arms all doors, windows, and interior motion detectors (same as Away mode). There is an Entry Delay on the Entry-
Exit zones. Use this mode when you are leaving for a period of days.
5 = DAY INST
Functions same as Day mode, however, there is no Entry Delay on any of the security zones. There will be an instant alarm if any of the zones are violated while in this mode.
6 = NIGHT DLY
Functions same as Night mode, however, there is an Entry Delay on the Entry-Exit zones. Use this mode if you are going to sleep but a family member is expected home at a later time.
To arm the system into one of the 6 security modes, from the security menu, choose the security mode and press the appropriate key (1 - 6).
Enter your user code number on the console keypad.
The console will beep once and the console LED will be set to red. The top line will display the security mode. The bottom line will display, " *** ARMING SYSTEM *** " to indicate that the system is being armed. The system will be fully armed after the
Exit Delay expires. If arming in Away or Vacation mode and Audible Exit Delay is enabled, the console will beep until the Exit
Delay has expired. During the last 10 second of the Exit Delay, the console will beep twice as fast so leave and close the door promptly.
Using Shortcut Keys
There are three shortcut keys on the console to arm the system in the Day, Night, and Away security modes, and Off to disarm, without having to go into the security menu.
From the top-level display, press one of the shortcut security keys. Enter your code number on the console keypad.
The console will beep once and the console LED will be set to red. The top line will display the security mode to indicate that you have correctly armed the system. The system will be fully armed after the Exit Delay expires.
The programmed Entry Delay is __________ seconds.
The programmed Exit Delay is __________ seconds.
For extra convenience, the OmniLT can be armed by simply pressing the DAY, NIGHT, or AWAY button twice, eliminating the need to enter the code.
To quick arm the system in the Away mode, from the top-level display, press
The quick arm feature only works if the alarm system is in the Off mode, and if no alarms are sounding. This feature is disabled when the system is shipped. If desired, it can be enabled or disabled at any time - See Set Up Arming, Enable Quick Arm.
8 = BYPASS
You can Bypass a zone that you do not want protected while the system is armed. Bypassing is also the only way that a tamper or panic zone can be disarmed. For example, if there is a liquor closet or gun case on a tamper zone, then you must bypass that zone to gain access to it.
Another reason to Bypass a zone is if the zone is having trouble. If a zone is causing a trouble indication, you can bypass that zone to "cut it out" of the system until repairs are made.
When a zone is bypassed, it is no longer checked for alarms. When you bypass a zone using the console (or over the phone) it will Stay bypassed until you Restore it. The console status display will show that the zone is bypassed only when the security system is disarmed. When the system is armed, it does not display bypassed zones.
To bypass a zone, from the main menu or from the top-level display, press 2 on the console keypad, then 8 for bypass. Enter the zone number followed by the ' # ' key, or use the arrow keys to select the zone. After the zone is entered, you will be prompted to enter your security code. The bottom line will now read "ZONE NAME BYPASSED" to remind you that the zone is bypassed.
If a fire zone is bypassed, the console will continue to beep until that zone is restored - See Restoring Zones.
In order to prevent the alarm from sounding unexpectedly if a window or door is open when the system is armed, the OmniLT will automatically bypass the zone if it is opened when the system is armed.
Note that there is an exit delay before the system is armed in any mode. The bypass will only take place if the zone is not ready
(i.e. open) when the exit delay is over and the system is actually armed.
When a zone is Auto-Bypassed, it will be automatically restored once it is secure (i.e. closed), or the next time you arm or disarm the system. The auto-bypass is recorded in the event log as "ZONE NAME BYPASSED". To prevent any zone from being bypassed unintentionally, you should always look for "SYSTEM OK" on the display before arming and leaving the premises.
The Auto-Bypass feature can be disabled if you do not want the system to automatically bypass open zones. If the auto-bypass feature is disabled, the alarm will sound if a zone not ready (i.e. open) when the system is armed.
NOTE: The Auto-Bypass feature is disabled on UL Listed Installations.
9 = RESTORE
Restoring a zone puts it back on active duty in the system. When restored, the Bypassed indication will no longer be displayed on the status line and the zone will be checked for alarms.
To restore a zone, from the top-level display, press 2 on the console keypad, then 9 for restore.
Enter the zone number followed by the ' # ' key, or use the arrow keys to select the zone. Press ' 0 ' as the first key to restore all zones. The 0 = ALL choice is removed once a digit key or the down arrow is pressed. After the zone or all zones is entered, you will be prompted to enter your code.
What To Do When You Come Home
Entry through a door:
If you enter your home while the system is armed in the Day or Away modes, using your normal entry door:
Console beeper comes on - display indicates: " *** DISARM SYSTEM *** - PRESS OFF THEN CODE"
Any lights or control modules programmed to come on for the door that you used will do so.
The system will wait the Entry Delay time.
You should go to your console (or telephone) immediately and turn the security system off. If you wish, you may go directly to a different security mode, rather than turning the system Off.
If you return home and hear the alarm sounding or the outdoor lights are flashing, DO NOT ENTER. Use a neighbor's phone to call for help.
What Happens When the Alarm is Activated
Burglar Alarm Activated
If someone enters through any zone other than an
-Exit zone, if the security system is in the
mode, or if the security system is not turned off during the
The sounder is activated, which makes a loud, continuous sound.
The display shows the type of alarm and the zones that have been tripped:
"BURGLAR ALARM! - ZONE NAME TRIPPED".
If more than one zone is tripped, then the bottom line will show each zone tripped for two seconds.
The When Alarm macro is activated. Any units programmed to come on will do so.
The Flash For Alarm Unit Number begins to flash on and off.
The system now waits the Dial Out Delay. (0 - 60 seconds)
If programmed, the in-house phones are seized (disconnected) and the OmniLT begins to dial out.
If you are having your system monitored by a central station, the central station will be sent a code representing the type of alarm
(burglary) and zone involved. In most cases, the central station will call back, requesting your password or passcode.
If you are not using central station monitoring but are using the voice dial out capability, the system looks at the Dial Order to determine which number to call first, and calls that number.
If you are using both central station monitoring and voice dial out, then the voice dial out is delayed by five minutes to give the central station time to call you back.
For more information on the digital and voice dialer - See Digital Dialer and Voice Dialer.
The system continues to sound all alarms and flash the flashing light for 1-30 minutes after the alarm is activated.
After a 1-30 minute period, the sounder is turned off, and the alarm system resets itself. The console beeper stays on.
If a zone is tripped after a reset, the sounder will again be activated, and the dialer will again dial out.
At any time, the alarm system can be turned off at the console.
Fire Alarm Activated
When the fire alarm is activated by the smoke/fire detector(s), the alarm responds exactly as described under Burglar Alarm
The console display reads, "FIRE ALARM! ZONE NAME TRIPPED".
The sounder will activate in a 3 pulse temporal pattern to distinguish the fire alarm from the burglar alarm.
If programmed, the in house phones are seized (disconnected) and the OmniLT begins to dial out.
The fire alarm takes priority over the burglar alarm, however, if a gas alarm is already active, it will not override the gas alarm.
NOTE: If multiple alarm types occur, such as both Fire and Police, the display will alternate between the alarm types.
Gas Alarm Activated
When the gas alarm is activated, the alarm responds exactly as described under Burglar Alarm Activated, except:
The console display reads, "GAS ALARM! ZONE NAME TRIPPED".
The sounder will pulse on - off - on, then an extended off period to distinguish it from the burglar or fire alarm.
If programmed, the in house phones are seized (disconnected) and the OmniLT begins to dial out.
The gas alarm takes priority over the burglar alarm, however, if a fire alarm is already active, it will not override the fire alarm.
Emergency alarm conditions can be activated through the console. These conditions (Fire, Police, and Auxiliary) are initiated with the simultaneous depression of two keys for approximately 1-second.
NOTE: The Emergency keys are always armed. The Fire and Auxiliary Emergency alarms are silenced by pressing the ' * ' key.
To cancel a Police Emergency alarm you must press the Off key and enter your code.
When the 1 key and the 3 keys are pressed simultaneously, the Police Emergency alarm is activated. This alarm operates exactly the same as described for Burglar Alarm Activated except:
The console display indicates: "BURGLARY! - POLICE EMERG TRIPPED".
When the 4 key and the 6 key is pressed simultaneously, the Fire Emergency alarm is activated. This alarm operates exactly the same as described for Police Emergency Button except:
The sounder activates in a 3 pulse temporal pattern distinguish the fire alarm from the burglar alarm.
The console display will read: "FIRE ALM - FIRE EMERG TRIPPED".
The Fire Emergency alarm can be turned off at any time by pressing the ' * ' key.
When the 7 key and the 9 key is pressed simultaneously, the Auxiliary Emergency alarm is activated.
The console beeper comes on - display indicates:
"AUX ALARM! AUX EMG BTN TRIPPED".
¾ The console beeper continues to sound until the alarm is disarmed.
Duress Code Entered or Duress Alarm Activated
(See Duress Code for a description of when to use)
In the event that you enter your duress code or a Duress zone is tripped, the system performs a silent dial out as follows:
No alarms, lights or console beepers are activated. The system does not display the duress alarm.
The system waits the dial out delay, then begins to dial out.
The alarm system will reset itself after the outside siren has been on for 1-30 minutes. When the alarm system resets, any zone that is ready is reactivated, so the alarm system will be activated again if the zone is tripped. If a zone remains not ready (i.e. a door has been left open) it will be automatically bypassed when the alarm resets.
The console will display, "(FIRE, BURGLAR, or EMERGENCY) ALARM RESET" when this happens.
At any time, you can silence your alarm system by pressing the Off key and entering your code. If the system has reported, or is in the process of reporting an alarm to a central station, it will send the alarm code followed by a code indicating that the user has canceled the alarm. If an alarm is canceled before the dial out delay has expired, the system will not report any alarm.
If an alarm is canceled during a voice dial out, the system hangs up immediately.
The OmniLT constantly monitors the alarm zones and several internal matters and will alert you if it detects trouble. The particular trouble is indicated on the bottom line of the display and a trouble signal is given by beeping the console beeper continuously, 2 beeps per second.
When any trouble condition occurs, the console will beep twice per second and continue to beep until the ' * ' key (cancel) is pressed to acknowledge the trouble. The console will say "TRBL NOW" (trouble now) if the trouble condition actually exists while you are looking at the console. It will say "HAD TRBL" (had trouble) if the trouble occurred and then corrected itself.
The following are trouble indications and their meanings:
¾ ZONE NAME TRBL NOW or HAD TRBL: If the reading for a zone becomes abnormal, trouble will be indicated on that zone -See Status \ Test. Excessive resistance in the contact and wiring usually causes trouble on security zones. If the cause is not obvious, call your installer for service.
¾ AC POWER OFF TRBL NOW or HAD TRBL: Indicated if the normal house current powering the OmniLT controller is interrupted for more than 3 minutes. If this happens without good cause, check the wall mounted transformer to ensure that it hasn't come out of the wall socket; check to see that the socket has power; check the MAIN fuse (F3) on the OmniLT controller to be sure that it is good.
¾ BATTERY LOW TRBL NOW or HAD TRBL: Every hour, the OmniLT takes a dynamic test of the battery. If the battery voltage is too low, then the console will indicate "BATTERY LOW". If this happens, make sure that the battery is connected. The "BATTERY LOW" indication will remain until the next battery test is executed, 1 hour later, or when a
Status | Test command is given.
¾ COMMUNICATOR TRBL NOW or HAD TRBL: Indicated if the digital communicator (not the voice dialer) was unable to make contact with the Central Station after trying both numbers multiple times. If this happens, there could be a problem with the system, central station, or the phone line. Call your installer for service.
¾ FUSE TRBL NOW or HAD TRBL: Indicated when the solid state fuse that protects the "Auxiliary" power supply opens.
The fuse will automatically reset when the fault condition is cleared.
¾ PHONE LINE DEAD TRBL NOW or HAD TRBL: Indicated if the phone line is dead for more than 1 minute.
To silence the trouble beeps on the console, press the ' * ' key. If more than one type of trouble has occurred, the display will show each one for two seconds. Pressing the ' * ' key will acknowledge all trouble indications.
If the trouble condition occurs again, the console beeper will beep again - See Set Up Arming, Beep On Trouble if you wish to disable the beeper.
¾ NO CONTROLLER DATA: Indicated in the event that the console's alarm functions are no longer operational. This may indicate a wiring problem to the console or a more serious problem. Call your installer for service.
There are 8 user codes that you may assign to users of the system. All OmniLT codes are 4 digits in length. A code can be any number from 0001 to 9999. Each user should be assigned a security code with an authority level and times in which the code will be valid. Memorize your codes! Don't give them to anyone who doesn't need to know them.
The levels of authority that you can assign to a user code are Master, Manager, and User.
The Master code allows complete access to the entire system. Only the owner(s) or the one(s) who will govern the system should have and use the master code.
User code 1 is always set to a Master code - See Set Up Codes.
