SECURITY CODES & AUTHORITY LEVELS
Authority Levels Authority levels define the system functions a particular user can perform. Depending on your
authority, there are certain system functions you may be prohibited from performing. There
are six authority levels, each having certain system restrictions.
Level 1 Master: Can perform all system functions in assigned partitions, and
can add, delete or change Manager and Operator level users.
Master codes are added by the Installer.
Level 2 Manager: Can perform system functions in assigned partitions, and can
add, delete or change Operator level users.
Level 3 Operator A: Can perform system functions in assigned partitions, but
cannot add or delete other users.
Level 4 Operator B: Same as Operator A, except Operator B cannot bypass zones
Level 5 Operator C: Can arm the system in assigned partitions, but cannot disarm
the system unless the system was armed with this code.
Typically assigned to someone who has a need to arm/disarm
the system only at certain times (such as a baby-sitter).
Level 6 Duress: Can arm and disarm the system, but also sends a silent panic
alarm to the central station, if that service is connected.
