Exit Alarms If an entry/exit door or interior zone is faulted when the exit delay ends (e.g., exit door left open), the
system sounds an alarm and starts the entry delay timer.
Disarming the system before entry delay ends stops the alarm sound .
The message " ALARM CANCELED " or "CA" is displayed on the keypad, along with a zone number
indicating the faulted zone.
No message is sent to the Central Monitoring Station.
If you do not disarm the system before the entry delay ends, and an entry/exit door or interior zone is
still open, the alarm sound continues and an "exit alarm" message is sent to the Central Monitoring
Station. The message ""EXIT ALARM" or "EA" and the faulted zone number is displayed on the keypad.
To stop the alarm, the system must be disarmed (your code plus OFF); to clear the display, enter your
code plus OFF a second time.
An “exit alarm” also results if an entry/exit door or interior zone is faulted within two minutes after the
end of the exit delay.
To clear an exit alarm:
Make the open zone intact, then
Enter your code plus [1] OFF to clear the display.
Your system may have been programmed for this feature to minimize false alarms sent to the Central
Monitoring Station. Ask your installer if "Exit Alarm" is active in your system. If so, check this box: [ ]
Before Arming (Ready [

Before arming the system, you should close or bypass all protected doors, windows and
(using [

••
Press [

] to display open zones (do not enter code first).
••
To bypass zones, see the Bypassing Zones section below.
Some systems, if programmed, may allow arming even if selected zones in the exit route are faulted.
Depending on the programming, these zones, if left faulted when exit delay expires, will either be
automatically bypassed or cause an alarm. See your installer.
Voice Status: Voice Keypads (if installed), can announce system status and faulted zones (up to 3 zone descriptors) if
Voice Status is on.
To turn Voice Status on/off: [#] + [0] [2] [4]
(also turns on Voice Chime mode; see Chime mode section)
To announce System Status: Press [

Ready All zones are closed or bypassed and you can now arm the system.
Some systems, if programmed, may allow arming even if selected zones in the exit route are faulted.
Depending on the programming, these zones, if left faulted when exit delay expires, will either be
automatically bypassed or will cause an alarm. See your installer for your system’s programming.
Bypassing Zones
Bypass Notes
••
You can bypass zones before arming the system or while the system is already armed.
Your system may have a limit on the total number (1-7) of zones you may bypass (check with your
installer).
Bypassed zones are unprotected and will not cause an alarm if violated.
The system will not allow fire zones to be bypassed.
Zones are automatically unbypassed when the system is disarmed.
Vent Zones: Your system may have certain windows set as “vent” zones, which are automatically bypassed
if left open when arming the system (you do not need to manually bypass them). However, if a vent zone
window is closed after arming, it becomes protected and will cause an alarm if opened again while the
system is armed.
To Bypass
••
Security code + [6] BYPASS + zone numbers
Zones Use 2-digit zone number(s) for the zone(s) to be bypassed.
Single digit zone numbers must be preceded by a zero (e.g. 05, 06).
When finished, the keypad will momentarily display a "Bypass" message for each bypassed zone number.
Wait for all bypassed zones to be displayed, then arm the system as usual.
When armed, “ZONE BYPASSED” is displayed with the arm message.
••
To display bypassed zones prior to arming, enter your security code and press the [6] BYPASS key.
Quick Bypass
••
Security Code+ [6] BYPASS + [#]
Wait for all bypassed zones to be displayed, then arm the system.
Active? ____ In a few moments, all open zones will be displayed and automatically bypassed. Make sure that only
those zones that you wish to leave unprotected are bypassed, and that there are no other zones
unintentionally left open.
Allows you to easily bypass all open (faulted) zones without having to enter zone numbers individually.
This feature is useful if, for example, you routinely leave certain windows open when arming at night.
