Burglary System Overview
Basic Features
Partitions Partitions provide three independent areas of protection, with each partition containing a group of
zones that can be armed and disarmed without affecting other zones or users.
Partitioned systems can include a common area, which is an area shared by users of two other
partitions (such as a lobby in a building).
Some users may be given the authority to view status and arm/disarm other partitions.
See Accessing Other Partitions section for details.
Zones Each partition consists of specific protection points known as zones.
When a zone is faulted, its zone number is displayed on the keypad for easy identification.
Keypads The system is controlled from the keypad, and the keypad displays system status.
Each keypad is assigned a default partition for display purposes, and will show only that partition's
When entering codes and commands, sequential key depressions must be made within 4-5 seconds of
one another. If 4-5 seconds elapse without a key depression, the entry will be aborted and must be
repeated from its beginning.
If you make a mistake while entering a security code, stop, press the [] key, and then start over. If you
stop in the middle while entering a code, and then immediately start the entry over, an erroneous code
might be entered.
Keypad Lockout: The system may have been programmed to lockout the keypads for 15 minutes if
more than 30 keystrokes (within a 15 minute period) are made without a valid user code plus
command being entered. The message “Code Sabotage” is displayed during the lockout period.
Voice Keypads Voice Keypads (if installed), are functionally the same as other keypads.
Voice announcements of system status (see Before Arming section)
Voice chime, which can alert you to the opening of doors and windows while the system is disarmed
(see Voice Chime in Chime mode section)
Message center, which lets you record and playback messages (see Using the Voice Message Center in
the System Overview section).
Security Codes Your installer assigned you a security code at the time of installation. This code is required to perform
most system functions.
Each security code can have a different authority level which defines the functions each user can
perform. Refer to the Security Code section for details on adding and changing security codes.
Arm/Disarm You can arm your system in several different modes, depending on whether you are staying in or
leaving the premises.
To arm the system, simply enter your security code followed by the desired arming mode key.
To disarm the system, enter your security code followed by [1] OFF.
Refer to the Arming/Disarming sections for specific arming commands.
Exit/Entry Delays
Exit Delay When you arm the system, the system gives you a programmed amount of time to leave through the
designated exit door and/or certain other zones (if programmed) without setting off an alarm.
A slow beeping, if programmed, will sound during the exit delay period until the last 10 seconds, which
then changes to fast beeping.
If programmed, the keypad displays a countdown of the number of seconds of exit delay remaining.
When exit delay expires, all zones become protected and cause an alarm if opened.
Your system may have been programmed such that exit delay remains in effect until a final zone (e.g.
exit door) has been closed for five seconds. Ask your installer.
Exit Delay
Press the [
] key if armed in STAY mode to restart the exit delay timer.
Restart This gives you time to open the entry/exit door to let someone in after arming STAY. The system
(if programmed) automatically re-arms when exit delay expires, which avoids having to disarm the system and then
re-arm it again.
When the system is armed AWAY, reopening and closing the entry/exit door before exit delay time
expires (e.g., reentering to get a forgotten item) will restart the exit delay time.
Entry Delay Gives you time to disarm the system when you re-enter through the designated entrance door. You must
disarm the system before the entry delay period ends, or an alarm will occur.
See your installer for your delay times.
