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. Both
types display protection point identification and system
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. Entrance
can be made through an entry delay zone without causing
an alarm if the system is disarmed before the entry delay
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.

within your house without causing an alarm. Entrance can
be made through an entry delay zone without causing an
alarm if the system is disarmed before the entry delay time

maximum protection. An alarm will occur immediately upon
opening any protection point, including entry delay zones.

7. BYPASS KEY: Removes individual protection zones
from being monitored by the system. Displays currently
bypassed protection zones.

protection point, including entry delay zones

that can be given to other users of the system.
