The arming procedure is used (when leaving the premises) to set devices in your system to cause an alarm should there be a change in their condition. You are turning on the security for an area or building which is unoccupied.
The arming procedure will vary depending on how your system is programmed.
Each arming station controls specific area/s. Only the area/s controlled by an arming station can be armed at that arming station.
Each PIN will only be authorized to arm specific area/s. When an arming procedure is used, only the area/s assigned to the PIN will be armed.
It is not possible to arm an area with an unsealed input. If at any time during the arming process the console sounds 7 quick beeps and displays the word unsealed, refer to the section on Unsealed Inputs.
After an area is armed you will have a pre-set time to exit the area before an alarm occurs.
To arm the system, you must specify that you are leaving an area, by using the ON key.
1. Before commencing, the display must show:
There Are No Alarms In This Area Code:
2. Enter your PIN
[ON] The area light(s) will illuminate.
3. The result of step 2 will depend on: – Whether the system has been programmed to display the areas assigned to your PIN. – Whether the areas to be armed are sealed. (See Unsealed Inputs).
Areas not displayed:
If your system has not been programmed to display the areas assigned to your PIN, any of those areas which were disarmed, will now be armed (provided all inputs were sealed). The display will return to that shown in step 1. The area light(s) will illuminate when the arming procedure has been successful.
If the areas assigned to your PIN are displayed, any of those areas which are disarmed will be listed.

Unsealed Inputs (When arming your system)
It is not possible to arm (or disarm, if your system is programmed that way) an area unless all the inputs in that area are sealed, as an unsealed input would usually set off an alarm. For example, all the doors and windows must be closed.
If any input is unsealed when you try to arm or disarm an area, The Challenger console will sound 7 quick beeps and will display the unsealed inputs.
Unsealed inputs are listed either:
One at a time
Unsealed On 6. Front Door NEXT or ENTER
As a list of numbers
Unsealed On 6, 7, 9. Input No:
From either display:
[NEXT] ~ Update the list of unsealed inputs and display the next inputs in the list (if any)
[?][ENTER] ~ Display the input name in full.
[ENTER] ~ Exit the function and return to the display shown when you were attempting to arm the system.
After you have determined which inputs are unsealed, you must seal them (eg. close door) then exit this display and try again to arm the system.
Note: If you are unable to seal an input, refer to Isolate Inputs.
