Advanced System Functions
(System Master and Master users only)
Accessing Other Partitions
• Each keypad is assigned to a partition by your installer and is used to perform functions in that
partition and display that partition’s system status.
• Certain users, if authorized, can “GoTo” another partition from their partition’s keypad to perform
functions in the other partitions or display another partition’s status. See GoTo command below.
• Certain users, if authorized, can arm/disarm all partitions with a single command from their home
partition. See Multi-Partition Arming below.
Common Area • Your system may have been set up to use a common area, which is an area shared by users of the other
partitions, such as a foyer or lobby.
• If a common area is part of the system and one of the partitions is armed, faults occurring in the
common area will be displayed on its keypads and the disarmed partition’s keypads.
• The common area will be armed and will sound and report alarms only when both the other partitions
are armed; if either of the other partitions is disarmed, the common area remains disarmed and ignores
• Either partition can arm its system if the common area is faulted, but once armed, the other partition
will not be able to arm unless the faulted common area zone is bypassed or the fault is removed.
• Either partition can clear and restore the common area after an alarm.
• Entry/exit time for the common area is the same as for partition 1.
• Security code + [∗
∗] + partition number (0,1,2, or 3), where:
0 = return to keypad’s original partition; 1 = partition 1; 2 = partition 2; 3 = partition 3
• You can only “goto” those partitions that were assigned to you.
• Can only be performed using an Alpha keypad.
• The keypad remains in the new partition until directed to go to another partition, or until it
automatically returns to the original partition (after 2 minutes with no keypad activity).
• Security code +  + arming command (2, 3, 33, 4, 7, or 1), where:
2 = arms all partitions AWAY; 3 = arms all partitions STAY
33 = arms all partitions NIGHT-STAY (INTERNAL)
4 = arms all partitions MAXIMUM; 7 = arms all partitions INSTANT
1 = disarms all partitions
• You can use this feature only if you were given that authority.
• You must use an Alpha keypad.
• The system arms only if all partitions are “ready to arm” (unless the system is programmed to allow
arming with faults in certain zones); if any partition is “not ready,” the system does not arm at all.
• You can use the GoTo command to bypass open zones before arming, if desired.
• If any partition is already armed when multi-partition arming is attempted, that partition remains in
its existing armed state.
Defining Macro Keys
• Only the system master can define macros.
• A macro key is a convenience key that can activate up to 16 keystrokes.
• Typical functions include arming sequences, bypassing zones, or turning on/off electrically operated
• Up to four macros can be assigned in the system, but only to keys pre-programmed by the installer.
• System Master Code + [#] +  
• Follow the prompts.
• Enter the macro number (1-4; see installer for appropriate macro number) to be programmed at the
“Select Macro?” prompt.
NOTE: It is not possible to define four different macros for each partition. The four macros that can be
defined can be used or not used in any partition.
• If a macro has been previously defined, the keystrokes are shown on the bottom line of the display,
otherwise the display is blank.
To exit this mode (and keep the existing macro definition), press any key except the [∗] key. The
system returns to normal mode.
To define a macro for the selected key, press [∗] and continue with the next prompt.
Enter the first of the series of desired commands, (do not include your user code), then press/hold the
“D” key for at least two seconds to complete the first command. This key terminates each command,
and appears as an “F” in the display as shown:
MACRO PGM The keypad beeps to acknowledge your input and displays
60203F#701F2F the command you entered (followed by “F”).
• Enter the next command, followed by press/holding the “D” key for at least two seconds. The keypad
beeps and displays the keystrokes entered.
•. Repeat until the all the desired commands have been entered (up to 16 characters including the “F”s).
Check your keystrokes before continuing. If you made a mistake, you must start over.
• To exit, press/hold the “D” key for at least two seconds. The display returns to system status and
indicates system is ready.
