FUNCTIONS OF THE KEYPADS
1. DISPLAY WINDOW: Shown on next page, a 2-line,
Liquid Crystal Display (LCD). Fixed-word keypads are
functionally similar, but use pre-designated words in their
displays (see page 6). Both types display protection point
identification and system status messages.
2. OFF KEY: Disarms the burglary portion of the system,
silences alarms and audible trouble indicators, and clears
visual alarm trouble after the problem has been corrected.
3. AWAY KEY: Completely arms both perimeter and
interior burglary protection for backup protection by
sensing an intruder's movements through protected
interior areas as well as guarding protected doors,
windows, etc. Late arrivals can enter through an entry
delay zone without causing an alarm if the system is
disarmed before the entry delay time expires.
4. STAY KEY: Arms the perimeter burglary protection,
guarding protected doors, windows and other perimeter
protection points, and sounds an alarm if one is opened.
Interior protection is not armed, which allows movement
within your house without causing an alarm. Late arrivals
can enter through an entry delay zone without causing an
alarm if the system is disarmed before the entry delay time

within the keypad's home partition. This key is also used
to display all zone descriptors that have been programmed
for your system, by holding the key down for at least 5
12. INSTANT KEY: INSTANT arms in manner similar to
STAY mode, but turns off the entry delay period, offering
greater security while inside and not expecting any late
arrivals. An alarm will occur immediately upon opening any
perimeter protection point, including entry delay zones.
13. MAX KEY: MAXIMUM arms in manner similar to
AWAY mode, but eliminates the entry delay period, thus
providing maximum protection. An alarm will occur
immediately upon opening any protection point, including
entry delay zones.
