User Instructions

Notices

FCC Part 15 Information to the User

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by GE Security can void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

FCC Part 15 Class B

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against interference in a residential installation.

This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.

If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

Connect the affected equipment and the panel receiver to separate outlets, on different branch circuits.

Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

ACTA Part 68

This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC Rules. Located on this equipment is a label that contains, among other information, the FCC registration number and the ringer equivalence number (REN) for this equipment. If requested, this information must be provided to the telephone company.

FCC Part 68 Registration No. B4ZUSA-25644-AL-E

The REN is used to determine the maximum number of devices that may be connected to your telephone line. Excessive RENs on a telephone line may result in devices not ringing in response to an incoming call. In most areas, the sum of all device RENs should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of devices that may be connected to a line, as determined by the total RENs, contact the local telephone company. For products approved after July 23, 2001, the REN for this product is part of the product identifier that has the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. The digits represented by ## are the REN without a decimal point (e.g., 03 is a REN of 0.3). For earlier products, the REN is separately shown on the label.

A plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and telephone network must comply with the applicable FCC Part 68 rules and requirements as adopted by ACTA. A compliant telephone cord and modular plug is provided with this product. It is designed to be connected to a compliant modular jack that is also compliant. See the Installation Instructions for details.

Alarm dialing equipment must be able to seize the telephone line and place a call in an emergency situation. It must be able to do this even if other equipment (telephone, answering system, computer modem, etc.) already has the telephone line in use. To do so, alarm dialing equipment must be connected to a properly installed RJ31X jack that is electrically in series and ahead of all other equipment attached to the same telephone line. Proper installation is depicted in the following diagram. If you have any questions concerning these instructions, consult your local telephone company or a qualified installer about installing an RJ31X jack and alarm dialing equipment for you.

If this equipment causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone company may temporarily disconnect your service. If possible, you will be notified in advance. When advance notice is not practical, you will be notified as soon as possible. You will also be advised of your right to file a complaint with the FCC.

The telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the operation of the equipment. You will be given advance notice in order to maintain uninterrupted service.

If you experience trouble with this equipment, please contact the company that installed the equipment for service and/or repair information. The telephone company may ask you to disconnect this equipment from the network until the problem has been corrected or you are sure that the equipment is not malfunctioning.

This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the telephone company. Connection to party lines is subject to state tariffs.

Getting to Know Your Security System

This security system is designed to protect your family and property, whether you are on the premises or away.

This manual describes how to operate your system. It describes basic arming and disarming commands as well programming instructions for system features.

The dealer or installer may have already discussed with you many details concerning your system. Specific setup information is included in the “Appendix A: User Sheets”.

Overview

Your security system is comprised of different components. Each component plays a special role in system operation (see Figure 1):

Figure 1. Security System Components

Panel

The panel is at the heart of your system. It stores the intelligence to monitor all the sensors and devices in the system. The panel is the piece of equipment that initiates a call to the central station in an alarm situation. The panel circuitry is enclosed in a steel cabinet and is installed out of the way of household or workplace traffic.

Touchpads

Touchpads allow you to communicate with your panel. You’ll use a touchpad to arm, disarm, and program your system.

Door/Window Sensors

Door and window sensors protect the perimeter of your home by alerting the panel when a door or window is opened.

Motion Sensors

Motion detectors in hallways or individual rooms detect a person moving across the field of detection.

Concord

1

Environmental Sensors

Environmental sensors such as smoke and heat detectors remain alert for the presence of fire or carbon monoxide 24 hours a day.

Phone Interface and Voice Module

Your system may contain a Phone Interface and Voice Module that allows you to use a Touchtone phone located onor off-site as a touchpad. The module also makes it possible to get voice feedback from speakers, guiding and informing with spoken prompts and system status reports.

Energy Saving Module

Your system may contain an optional Energy Saving Module which helps you save money by allowing your system to monitor and control the temperature of your home or business. The module can also be programmed to alert the central station in the event of furnace or AC failure.

SuperBus®2000 Cellular Backup Module

Your system may contain an optional SuperBus 2000 Cellular Backup Module which expands your systems reporting means with cellular telephone reporting. The module can automatically report alarms with a cellular telephone in case of inoperative landline telephone communications.

SuperBus 2000 Wireless Gateway Module

Your system may contain an optional SuperBus 2000 Wireless Gateway Module which allows the control and status monitoring of your system through the internet. The module will also allow you to use Event Notification by phone (voice) or email.

Communicating with the Panel

Touchpads allow you to communicate with the panel. In turn, the system can be set up to communicate with you through:

status beeps from touchpads and speakers,

alarm sirens,

scrolling text on touchpads,

display text on fixed display touchpads,

voice feedback over Touchtone phones or interior speakers, and

system information over pagers.

Instructing the Panel

Most of your instructions to the panel consist of this basic pattern:

Command + Access Code

Not just anyone can walk up to a touchpad and operate your security system. Before the system will process most commands, users are required to enter a pre-programmed 4-digit access code.

Keychain touchpads that are enrolled as part of the system do not require an access code, but are usually kept in an individual’s pocket or purse.

If you would rather use an actual key (see Figure 2) to arm and disarm the system, your security dealer can install a special key and keyswitch in your home.

Touchpads—Your System Interface

There is a broad range of touchpads that can be used with your panel—from a single-button panic sensor which sends only panic alarms, to an alphanumeric touchpad that displays text and allows extensive user programming (see Figure 3).

Alphanumeric Touchpads

Alphanumeric touchpads are mounted on a wall and communicate by displaying text on a twoline display.

Fixed Display Touchpads

Fixed English (display) touchpads communicate using lighted text, LEDs, and an 11 character display.

Wireless Handheld Touchpad

This touchpad is wireless and can be carried from room to room. Users can even turn on and off system controlled lights from anywhere in the home.

Keychain Touchpads

Keychain touchpads are handy for simple arming and disarming functions. They are wireless and can be carried off-site in a purse or pocket.

The installer can program specific buttons or button combinations to operate a gate or garage door, or to send a Police or Auxiliary panic alarm.

Touchtone Phones

Your system can be set up to allow system operation from a Touchtone phone onor off-site. This includes arming and disarming, plus system features such as checking the system status and turning on and off lights.

Panic Buttons

Panic button touchpads are dedicated to sending only one signal— usually a Police or Auxiliary panic alarm. These touchpads are wireless and usually kept near or on the user.

Beeps and LEDs— How Your System Talks to You

Touchpads and interior sirens produce a variety of operating beeps to inform you of different system states and operations.

Key Beeps

A Key beep is the tone you hear when you press a button on an alphanumeric, fixed display, or handheld wireless touchpad. The sound confirms that the button was pressed adequately. Key Beeps can be turned on or off by the installer.

Status Beeps

Status beeps come from touchpads or speakers and are sounded when there is a change in the current status of the system. Status beeps are not alarms, but they do warrant your attention.

There is more than one type of Status beep:

Concord

3

Note

Your system may or may not be monitored. If it is not monitored, no central station report will be made.

Exit Delay beeps indicate that an arming command has been entered and the countdown to arming has begun.

Entry Delay beeps indicate that you’ve entered the building and the countdown to an alarm has begun. (So disarm the system as soon as you get in!)

Chime feature beeps tell you that a door was opened or closed.

Protest beeps inform you that you’re trying to arm the system while there is an open door or window.

Trouble beeps tell you that there is a problem with the system or one of its components.

Sensor test beeps are the sounds the system makes during a sensor test to indicate that a sensor was tested properly.

Status beeps are described in more detail throughout the manual and in the “Appendix A: User Sheets”.

LEDs

Fixed display touchpads have 2 LEDs which allow you to determine the current system status at a glance. The red LED is labeled Armed and the green LED is labeled Ready. The table below explains LED behavior.

Notification by Pager

Your system can dial the phone numbers of five different pagers to notify pager holders of events they may want to be aware of. Some of the events include:

System disarming

System arming

Trouble conditions

Alarm conditions

For more information, see “Notification By Pager”.

What Happens in an Alarm Condition

When there is an alarm condition, four things happen all at once:

Speakers and touchpads emit emergency tones.

System lights flash.

Panel notifies the central station for help.

Pagers are notified of the event.

Fire and Smoke Alarms

If your system contains smoke and fire detectors, it monitors the premises for smoke and fire alarms 24 hours a day in all arming levels.

Most alarms can be canceled or aborted (fire alarms CANNOT be aborted) and are always reported to the central station. Since many communities charge for dispatching the fire department in error, your dealer may give you specific instructions to follow in the event of an accidental smoke or fire alarm. Record these instructions in Appendix A: User Sheets under “Accidental Smoke and Fire Alarms”.

4

Concord

Note

In some cases a smoke sensor reset switch has been installed. If so, you’ll need to press it after Step 2.

Resetting Smoke Detectors

Most wireless smoke detectors used with this system automatically reset themselves, after detecting smoke. Most hardwired smoke detectors must be manually reset after detecting smoke, before they are able to detect smoke again. Check with your installer for smoke detector reset procedures for your system

To reset wireless smoke detectors:

1. Disarm the system. The smoke detector will reset once all the smoke has cleared.

To reset hardwired smoke detectors:

1.Disarm the system.

2.The light on the smoke detector remains lit until it is reset.

3.Disarm system again to reset hardwired detectors.

Preventing

Accidental

Alarms

Note

Programmed Idle Text is programmed by your installer to identify sensors, outputs, etc. For example, a sensor could be identified as “Front Door.”

Your security system is engineered with advanced technology that reduces the chance of an accidental alarm caused by a technical problem. In wireless systems, this technology prevents other devices, such as garage door openers, ham radios, television remote controls, and cellular phones, from interfering with your security system.

Most accidental alarms occur when leaving the residence after arming the system, or upon returning, before disarming the system.

If, for example, you arm the system, then run upstairs for something you forgot, the Exit Delay time may expire. Once the Exit Delay expires, opening an armed door or moving in front of a motion detector will cause an alarm.

Aborting Accidental Alarms

Your system can be set up with the opportunity to abort an accidental intrusion, Police or Auxiliary alarm.

If the Dialer Abort feature is turned on, disarming the system within a specified time period will silence the siren and prevent the alarm from being reported to the central monitoring station (thus aborting the alarm). Your system will display “report aborted” for a few seconds, if you disarm before the alarm is reported. If you don’t disarm in time to abort the central station report, the system will automatically send an “alarm cancelled” report to the central station when the system is disarmed. Follow the procedures of your central station to prevent a false dispatch. See “Alarm Information” in Appendix A to determine if this feature is enabled for your system.

Fire alarms caused by smoke sensors, fire panic alarms, and heat sensors cannot be aborted. Disarming a fire alarm will silence the siren, but fire alarms are always reported. If an accidental fire alarm has sounded, follow the procedures of your central monitoring station to prevent a false dispatch.

Note

There is a communicator delay (Dialer Abort Delay) of 30 seconds programmed into this panel. The panel will delay 30 seconds before dialing the central monitoring station or a numeric pager to send reports. You can have your installer program this delay time between 15 - 45 seconds.

To cancel an alarm:

1.Press 1. Touchpads display “ENTER CODE.”

2.Enter your Access Code.

OR

1. Enter your Access Code

Touchpads display date and time or Programmed Idle Text. The system sounds one long beep. If you’re using a Touchtone phone, see “Using a Touchtone Phone to Operate Your System”.

Guidelines for Preventing Accidental Alarms

The following guidelines will go a long way toward preventing accidental alarms.

Close doors and windows before you leave your house.

Gather your belongings, so you can exit immediately after arming the system.

Concord

5

Always enter and exit within the programmed delay times.

Make sure you leave through a door that has a delay time set for it.

Disarm your system immediately upon returning home.

Be aware of the devices in your security system and learn how each one operates.

If you have pets, ask your installer if you need pet lenses in your motion detectors.

Check the location of your smoke detectors. Smoke detectors near bathrooms and kitchens can be tripped by steam and smoke from cooking.

Take note of system beeps, voice announcements and indicator lights which indicate the current system status.

Basic System

Operations

This section describes:

Arming your system.

Using the chime feature.

Delay times.

Bypassing sensors.

Basic light control.

Basic output control.

Checking the system status.

For instructions on using a phone to perform any of these functions, see “Using a Touchtone Phone to Operate Your System”.

Arming Your System

Since your security needs may vary throughout the day, this system was designed with three arming levels to meet these different needs. By arming your system to a particular level, only those sensors programmed to detect in that arming level will report alarm conditions to the panel.

No matter which level your system is in, all sensors programmed to be active 24 hours a day will continue to report alarm conditions. This includes smoke detectors, fire sensors, panic buttons, and environmental sensors.

Keychain Touchpad Arming

To disarm your system with a keychain touchpad, press the unlock button.

Your installer can set up your keychain touchpad to arm the system in one of two ways:

1.Press the Lock button to arm the system directly to Level 3—AWAY with no Exit Delay. Using this method, you would not be able to arm to Level 2—STAY.

2.Press the Lock button to increase the arming level each time it is pressed (Level 1 to Level 2, or Level 2 to Level 3). The Exit Delay time would be applied.

Press the Lock button after arming to AWAY (Level 3) to activate the Latchkey feature (must be set up by installer). For more information, see “Latchkey Paging”.

Note

Your system may be configured to sound short beeps on exterior sirens when arming or disarming the system using a keychain or wireless touchpad. This gives confirmation that an arming change was successful even when outside. Ask your installer about this feature.

Arming Level 1—OFF

Use arming Level 1 when the system is not being used for intrusion detection. For example, on an active Saturday morning—kids playing inside and out, someone working in the garage, various house projects going on.

Even though Arming Level 1 disarms the system, your system continues to monitor fire, smoke, and panic alarms.

Here are some other situations in which you’d set the system to Level 1—OFF:

Upon entering your armed home or business. When entering the armed premises through a designated delay door, the Entry Delay time begins. Sirens and touchpads beep to remind you to disarm the system.

6

Concord

Note

If Quick Arm feature is on, an access code is not required to arm the system to Level 2— STAY.

Note

If Quick Arm feature is on, an access code is not required to arm the system to Level 3— AWAY.

Note

Contact your installer if you want to use this feature.

Before opening a door or window while inside or outside the home or business. When you wake up in the morning and want to get your newspaper, you must disarm the system before opening the door to prevent an accidental alarm.

To stop sirens and cancel an alarm. When an alarm condition occurs disarming the system turns off any sirens.

To disarm to Level 1—OFF using a touchpad:

1.Press 1. Touchpads display “ENTER CODE.”

2.Enter your Access Code. Touchpads display date and time or programmed text and the system sounds one long beep.

To disarm to Level 1—OFF using a keychain touchpad:

1. Press the Unlock button.

Arming Level 2—STAY

There are times when you want intrusion protection, but still want the freedom to move around within your house without setting off an alarm. For example, in the evening when your family is inside for the night. In this and similar situations, set your system to 2—STAY.

To arm to Level 2—STAY using a touchpad:

1.Close all protected perimeter doors and windows.

2.Press 2 at any touchpad. Touchpads display, “ENTER CODE.”

3.Enter your Access Code. Touchpads display, “Armed to STAY” and the system sounds two short beeps.

4.If leaving the premises, exit through a designated delay door immediately.

To arm to Level 2—STAY using a keychain touchpad:

1. Press the Lock button.

Arming Level 3—AWAY

At other times, you want every sensor to be alert when the family goes on vacation, or at closing time.

In this and similar situations, set your system to 3—AWAY for maximum protection. All sensors are active—perimeter door and window sensors, and interior motion detectors.

To arm to Level 3—AWAY using a touchpad:

1.Close all perimeter doors and windows.

2.Press 3 at any touchpad. Touchpads display, “ENTER CODE.”

3.Enter your Access Code. Touchpads display, “ARMED TO AWAY” and the system sounds three short beeps.

4.Exit through a designated delay door immediately.

To arm to Level 3—AWAY using a keychain touchpad:

1.Press the Lock button twice to go from Level 1 to Level 3, or once to go from Level 2 to Level 3.

Quick Arm

The Quick Arm feature lets you arm your system without using an access code. You will still need to enter an access code to disarm the system.

Quick Arm to Level 2:

1. From Level 1--Press 2.

Quick Arm to Level 3:

1. From Level 1 or 2--Press 3.

Concord

Note

In UL Listed systems, this feature is disabled.

Important !

If you step outside and are planning to come back in, do not close the door behind you!

Note

Arming to Level 2 will also cause Exit Delays.

Quick Exit

Your system may be set up so that when your system is armed to Level 2—STAY, you’re able to press D on any touchpad and simply walk out the door without having to disarm and rearm the system.

This is useful when your system is armed and you want to quickly pop outside to pick up the newspaper without disarming your system.

To use Quick Exit:

1.When the system is armed to 2—STAY, Press D at any touchpad (opening the door without pressing D will cause an alarm).

2.Open the door and go outside. Leave the door open if you are planning to come back in!

3.Come back in within two minutes and close the door. The system will rearm to 2—STAY.

Using the Chime Feature

Turning on the Chime feature is like having bells on every protected door and window. When this feature is on, sirens and speakers sound 2 beeps whenever anyone opens a protected door or window.

The Chime feature works only in Level 1—OFF.

To turn Chime on/off:

1.While in Level 1—OFF, from any touchpad, Press 7 + 1. While the Chime feature is on, touchpads display, “CHIME IS ON” or “CHIME ON.”

Chime-On-Close

The Chime-On-Close feature works like the regular Chime feature, but in addition to the double beeps heard upon opening a protected door or window, the system sounds one long beep when the door or window is closed again.

You can turn the Chime-On-Close feature on or off from the programming menus. Refer to “Using Programming Menus” for information on programming your system.

Using the Voice Chime Feature

If the installer wired speakers to the Phone Interface and Voice module outputs, you can program your system to speak the programmed sensor text whenever someone opens a protected door or window. When this feature is on, speakers announce, “Sensor name open/closed.” You can turn the Voice Chime feature on or off from the programming menus. Refer to “Using Programming Menus” for information on programming your system.

Exit and Entry Delay Times

After arming your system, you need time to exit the building so you won’t set off an alarm. Likewise, upon returning to your home or business, you’ll need enough time to open the door and get to a touchpad to disarm the system.

The Exit Delay is a period of time long enough to let you leave through a designated delay door after arming the system.

The Entry Delay is a period of time long enough to let you open and enter through a designated delay door and get to a touchpad to disarm the system.

Exit Delay Example

You’re about to go on an errand. You are inside your house and have just armed the system to Level 3—AWAY.

The interior sirens and touchpads sound three quick status beeps, telling you that the system accepted the command and has started the Exit Delay time.

During the Exit Delay time, the system sounds one short beep every 4 seconds. Exit the premises immediately.

During the last 10 seconds of the Exit Delay you’ll hear one short beep every second, warning you that the Exit Delay is about to expire. When the delay expires, you’ll hear three more quick status beeps. These beeps indicate that the Exit Delay has ended. Opening an armed door or window after the Exit Delay has expired will cause an alarm (see Figure 4).

Entry Delay Example

You are returning to your house that is armed to Level 3—AWAY. When you unlock and enter the designated delay door, the interior sirens and touchpads sound two short beeps every two seconds. This tells you that the Entry Delay time has begun and reminds you to disarm the system to avoid setting off an alarm.

During the last 10 seconds of Entry Delay, you’ll hear two beeps every second. If you hear 3 beeps every 3 seconds, an alarm has occurred while you were away.

Figure 5. Entry Delay Example

Your installer will work with you to decide which door(s) should be delay door(s), and determine the delay times that will work best for you and your family. Then, the installer will program the Exit and Entry Delay times into your system.

Extended Delay

In some situations, additional time is needed to arm or disarm the system.

In these instances, the installer can program an Extended Delay time, giving you as much as 16 additional minutes to arm or disarm the system before setting off an alarm.

Refer to Appendix A “Doors and Delay Times Settings” for a list of actual Exit Delay times.

Exit Extension

Your system may be set up so that the delay time is restarted if you re-open the delay door during the initial delay time.

This is useful if, after arming the system, you walk out the door, then remember something you forgot inside. You can re-enter and exit through the delay door without disarming and re-arming the system.

If your system is not using this feature, you must disarm the system when you re-enter the armed premises to avoid setting off an alarm.

No Delay—For Instant Alarm

You can choose to turn off the Entry and Exit Delays, causing the delay doors to arm immediately. Anyone entering the house through the delay door when the system is set to No Delay would immediately cause an alarm.

No Delay is normally used:

When you’re staying at home, after you’ve armed the system.

Concord

Note

If Quick Arm feature is on, an access code is not required. See the “Quick Arm” section in this manual.

Note

When a sensor is bypassed, you are allowing that door or window to go unprotected.

Note

You cannot bypass sensors directly using a keychain touchpad.

When you’re arming your house from the outside. (You must have a wireless touchpad in order to do this.)

Arming to Level 2 or 3 with No Delay, using a touchpad:

1.Close all perimeter doors and windows.

2.Enter 2 + CODE or 3 + CODE. The system sounds two or three short beeps.

3.Immediately after hearing the beeps, press 4 for No Delay. Touchpads display, “ARMED TO STAY NO DELAY” or “ARMED TO AWAY NO DELAY,” for example.

Changing the arming level will restore delay doors to their normal Exit and Entry Delay times.

Auto STAY Arming Feature

The Auto STAY Arming feature helps cut down on false alarms in the event that you arm the system to 3—AWAY, but fail to leave during the Exit Delay time. Here’s how it works:

If you arm the system to Level 3—AWAY, and do not leave the premises within the Exit Delay time

If feature turned on

The system can tell that no one opened and closed a delay door

 

within the delay time. It assumes that someone is still inside and

 

the panel will arm to 2—STAY to avoid a false alarm.

 

 

If feature turned off

The system arms to Level 3—AWAY regardless of whether or not a

 

delay door has been opened and closed.

 

Your movement inside the premises could activate a motion

 

detector, causing an alarm.

 

 

The dealer can turn this feature on or off for you. See Appendix A “System Features” to see if this feature is available to you.

Arming While a Door or Window is Open

It is possible to arm your system while leaving a door or window open. This is useful if, for example, you like to sleep at night with the window open.

If the door or window has a sensor installed on it, the system must be told to ignore, or bypass, that sensor when it’s open. All other sensors will remain active.

There are two methods for bypassing a sensor:

Directly — After arming the system, bypass door/window sensors before you open them. You must know the sensor number of the door or window you wish to bypass. Your installer can include the zone number as part of the sensor text.

Indirectly — As you are arming, bypass sensors on doors and windows that are already open. This method should not be used in UL Listed installations.

Bypassing a Sensor Directly

Use this method if the system is armed and you would like to open a window without disarming.

Refer to the “Appendix A: User Sheets” to determine what the sensor number is for the sensor you wish to bypass.

To bypass sensors directly:

1.Close all doors and windows.

2.Arm your system to the desired level.

3.At any touchpad, press # + CODE. (# is labeled Bypass)

4.Touchpads display, “BYPASS SENSOR _ _,” or “ENTER SNSR _ _.” Enter the desired sensor number.

5.Touchpads display, “BYPASSED ZONES 01,” or “SENSOR 01 BYPASSED,” for example.

6.If the touchpad displays “INVALID,” or “FAILURE,” or if the touchpad sounds one long beep, make sure that you entered a valid sensor number. Heat and smoke sensors cannot be bypassed.

7.Bypass other sensors, if necessary, by repeating Step 3.

8.The bypassed door or window can now be opened.

To arm (unbypass) bypassed sensors:

Concord

Note

For system lights to respond to basic and advanced light commands, the light switches must be turned on.

1.Repeat the above procedure substituting the bypassed sensor number or,

2.Close bypassed doors and/or windows and arm your system again.

Bypassing a Sensor Indirectly

Use this method if you are arming the system and would like to bypass doors and windows already open.

To bypass sensors indirectly:

1.Leave open only those doors and windows that are to remain open. Close all others.

2.Arm your system to the desired level. The touchpad emits protest beeps and displays “PROTEST,” because of the open sensor(s).

3.At any touchpad. press # (Bypass). Touchpads with displays show, “BYPASSED ZONES 01,” or “SENSOR 01 BYPASSED,” for example.

4.The system sounds arming level beeps to indicate that the system is armed and open sensors have been successfully bypassed.

To arm (unbypass) bypassed sensors:

1.Close bypassed doors and/or windows.

2.Arm your system again.

To bypass sensors indirectly using a keychain touchpad:

1.Press the button once to arm the system and again to bypass open sensors.

Was the Bypass Successful?

To confirm whether or not a sensor was bypassed:

1.Press the Status button on the touchpad. (* is labeled Status.) Touchpads list bypassed sensors or zones.

Basic Light Control

There are two kinds of light control:

Basic light control, offering instant light control at any touchpad, and

Advanced light control, in which lights turn on and off automatically according to specific situations. (See “Advanced Light Control”).

To turn all lights on or off:

1. From any touchpad: Press 0 + 0.

From a 4-button keychain touchpad: Press the Lights button.

To turn a specific light on or off*:

1.From any touchpad: Press 0 + light number.

From a 4-button keychain touchpad:

You cannot turn on a specific light using a keychain touchpad.

Refer to the User Sheets in Appendix A to determine which light number is associated with which lamp.

Basic Output Control

Panel output points control the hardware installed on your system. These outputs are usually configured to turn on automatically in response to certain events.

Your installer may have configured your system so that you can control some output points from your touchpad. Have the installer list and explain any outputs that are programmed for your control. Use the following procedure to turn an output on or off.

To turn the output on or off:

Concord

11

1.From any touchpad press 7 + 7 + output number. If the output was already activated, it will shut off. If the output was off, it will activate.

Checking the Status of Your System

Checking the system status means finding out about the current condition of your system. This includes finding out if any sensors are open or currently bypassed, whether or not the AC power and backup battery are okay, the nature of the most recent alarm, and more, depending on the features in use and the equipment in your system.

Check the system status if:

Your system sounds trouble beeps (five short beeps every minute).

Your touchpads display, “ALARM,” and “POLICE,” “AUXILIARY,” or “FIRE.”

Your touchpads display, “PRESS STATUS” or a blinking *.

If an alarm or system trouble condition has occurred, it is displayed on a touchpad the first time you perform a Short or Full Status check. Performing a system status check a second time displays the system status including any trouble conditions.

If any alarm or system trouble is active, it continues to show up in every status check until the system is disarmed.

Short System Status

A Short Status indicates the current arming level, sensor status (whether open or bypassed), low battery, supervisory, auxiliary phone, AC power or backup battery failures.

To get a Short System Status:

1. Press *. (* is labeled Status.)

The system sounds beeps according to the current arming level (one for Level 1, two for Level 2, three for Level 3). Touchpads display and optional voice modules announce the status information, for example, “SYSTEM IS OK,” or “SENSOR 02 OPEN.”

Full System Status

A Full Status combines the Short Status information with added details about specific system features.

To get a Full System Status:

1. Press * + *.

Interior sirens sound beeps according to the current arming level. Touchpads display and optional voice modules announce the status information, for example, “SYSTEM IS OK,” “SENSOR 03 BYPASSED,” “SYSTEM BATTERY IS OK,” “AC POWER IS OK.” If the optional Energy Saver module is installed the system will display/announce its status (on/off) and the current temperature (if on).

Panic Alarms

Panic alarms are easily activated from any touchpad to quickly alert the central monitoring station to a Fire, Police, or Auxiliary emergency. A panic alarm can be sent at any time, regardless of the current arming level:

1—OFF, 2—STAY, or 3—AWAY.

This system is designed to inform a central monitoring station of the nature of the emergency so the correct personnel can be dispatched immediately.

Each type of panic alarm sounds and reacts differently when activated.

To activate an Auxiliary panic alarm from a touchpad:

1. Press and hold the Auxiliary button(s) for 2 seconds.

To send an Auxiliary panic alarm from a keychain touchpad:

1. Press and hold the Lights and Star buttons at the same time for 2 seconds.

Lighting During an Auxiliary Panic Alarm

If your system is equipped with system lighting, all system lights will turn on and remain on during an Auxiliary panic alarm.

Siren Time-out

If the system is not disarmed after an alarm, the sirens will continue to sound until the time-out period is reached. The time-out period can only be programmed by your installer or dealer.

Even though reaching the time-out stops the sirens, the alarm will still be in progress and will remain so until the system is manually disarmed.

Access Codes

The system requires a valid access code before it will process most commands.

There is one System Master code which serves as the primary User Programming code for your system. Only a very limited number of users will need to know this code.

There are two Partition Master codes (one for each partition) which allow access to system operations in their respective partitions.

There are 230 Regular User codes (000-229) which act like keys to arm and disarm the system. If necessary, they can be assigned to neighbors, baby-sitters, or repair persons for temporary use.
