Arming and Disarming The System

ENTRY DELAY TIMER

Your installer will program designated entry points (i.e. the front door) with an entry delay. This delay will allow you enough time to enter your code to disarm the system before the alarm is triggered.

DISARMING AN ARMED SYSTEM

You can only disarm the area to which your User Access Code is assigned. User Access Codes with the Arm Only option cannot disarm area(s).

How do I disarm the system?
The keypad will beep and begin the Entry Delay Timer.

1) Enter your [ACCESS CODE], you will receive three beeps and a message that says "System Disarmed" or "System not Ready"

Note: If you have access to more than one area, press the area’s number, press the [0] button for all areas, or scroll and press [ENTER] when the area you want to disarm appears.
After Confirmation Beep, “Success Disarm” should appear on LCD screen.

If enabled by the installer, a One-Touch Button or a keyswitch can also be used to disarm the area.

How do I disarm an accidentally triggered system?
1) Enter your [ACCESS CODE].
2) Call your Security Company quickly to advise them of the false alarm.

ARMING THE SYSTEM

This method is used for the everyday arming of the system. All zones within the protected area must be closed to arm the system.

How do I regular arm the system?

1) Enter your [ACCESS CODE].
After Confirmation Beep, “System Armed, Exit Timer (countdown timer)” should appear.

When the countdown timer acitvates, you may leave the building.

Note: If enabled by your installer, the One-Touch Buttons or a keyswitch can also be used to arm the area.

Alarm Memory

Your system will record all the alarms that occurred during the last armed period. If an alarm was triggered, the keypad will display “Alarms in Memory”, or "Memory" in the top left of a Wireless Keypad.

How do I view the list of the alarms that occurred?
When an alarm has occurred, the LCD screen will display
“Alarms in Memory [MEM] to View”.1) Press the [MEM] button.
Each zone whose alarm was triggered will appear below “Alarm in:”.


2) Press the clear button to clear the Alarm Memory Display.

Bypassing

BYPASS PROGRAMMING

The installer can program certain zones with the bypass option. This will enable you to program the system to bypass certain zones when you arm the protected area. When a zone is bypassed, it will remain unarmed once the system is armed. This option may be useful, for example, when you are having issues with a zone that is part of the protected area. The system will keep the bypassed zone(s) in memory until the area is armed. Once the area is disarmed, the system will unbypass the zones.

To bypass a zone:
The zone must have the Bypass option programmed by the installer.
Your User Access Code must be programmed to enable the Bypass option.
Your User Access Code must have access to the zone’s Area Assignment.

Fire Zones cannot be bypassed

Zone Bypass

How do I activate the Zone Bypass feature for a zone?


1) Press the [BYP] button.

2) Enter your Access Code.

3) Enter the zone number and press [BYP] once the zone you want to bypass appears.
If “zone bypassed” or the zone doesn't appear solid on the keypad, and the keypad emits the Rejection Beep (1 long beep), the zone may not have the bypass feature enabled.

Keypad Functions

PANIC ALARMS
