SYSTEM OVERVIEW
This system provides three (3) forms of protection: burglary, fire, and emergency, depending on the options set by your
installer. The system consists of a Control Panel with a color touch screen, wireless sensors that provide perimeter and
interior burglary protection, and wireless smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. In addition, optional remote control key
fobs, wireless panic buttons and keypads may have been provided or installed.
The system monitors all protection “zones” and the system’s status. The Control Panel displays monitoring information
and controls the alarm siren. Your system may have also been setup to send alarm and status reports to a Central Station
and may have the capability for 2-way voice communications with the alarm monitoring operator.
FEATURES
The following is a list of standard features and options that can be included in your system. Ask your installer which
options are available, and check the boxes that apply.


Stay
and
Away
arming modes:
Stay mode
arms the system perimeter only and is used typically at night when
the premises are occupied.
Away mode
arms the system perimeter and interior; it is used when the premises are
unoccupied.


64 user-unique 4-digit codes to operate the system
: The system supports one (1)
master user code
that can
assign and maintain the other
user codes
.


One of the 64 user codes functions as a
duress code
. Controlling the system with this code gives the appearance of
normal operation, but using it sends a silent duress report to the Central Station to initiate a silent alarm call for help.


Voice announcements from the Control Panel
: The system has a vocabulary of descriptive words that can be
assigned to sensors so each has a unique announcement such as “front door” or “bedroom window” if desired.


Home automation with the built-in Z-Wave controller for remote control of Z-Wave enabled home appliances (optional
feature).


Alarm history with system event log
: Each alarm and system alert is logged into the system’s memory. These
events can be displayed and reviewed at the Control Panel or reviewed remotely by the Central Station.


Real-time clock and calendar appears on the system’s display and is used to time stamp items in the event log.

‰
2-way voice communication: After an alarm, the system can automatically connect with a Central Station operator
to converse with people in the premises.

‰
Remote control of the system using a Web-enabled device through the Internet.
*

‰
Three optional 24-hour emergency functions:
Panic
,
Fire
, and
Emergency
. These functions can be activated
by pressing buttons on the Control Panel, using wireless sensors, using the wireless keypad or using portable
pendant devices (such as the panic button remote).
*
Requires the optional Cellular Radio Module. Copyright ©

BASIC OPERATION
The following are general operational concepts that your
system supports. Understanding these concepts will help
you to use your security system to its fullest extent.
Sensor Types/Zones
The system’s wireless sensors have been assigned to
selected “types” (often called “zones”). The sensor type
determines how and when the system will react to a signal
from the sensor. Some sensors are armed 24 hours a day.
Other sensors are armed only when the system is armed.
Smoke, Heat, and Freeze Protection
If wireless smoke, heat, and freeze detectors have been
installed in your system, they are armed 24 hours a day.
They will sound an alarm when smoke is detected and can
report the fire alarm to the Central Station. See “
Smoke,
Heat and Freeze Protection
” on
page 18
for emergency
planning and evacuation information.
Burglary Protection
Burglary protection is provided by perimeter and interior
sensors. When the system is armed in the
Away mode
,
both perimeter and interior sensors are armed and can
trigger an alarm. When the system is armed in the
Stay
mode
, only the perimeter sensors are armed and can
trigger an alarm.
Both arming modes offer an
Exit Delay
that allows time
to exit the premises without triggering the alarm. Upon
re-entry, an
Entry Delay
is enabled that allows you time to
disarm the system.
You can set sensors to sound a chime and/or a voice
announcement when they are triggered. This allows you
to monitor your doors and windows while the system is
disarmed.
For more details, see “
Burglary Protection
” on
page 8
.
User Codes
The system installer has already programmed a
master
user code
for your system. This code can be used to
control the system as well as assign and change the other
user codes. The
master user code
can also access several
system setup settings in the User Toolbox.
Alarms
When an alarm occurs, the Control Panel’s siren and an
external siren (if installed) sound for a preset period of time.
During active alarms and after disarming, the alarm history
button displays all the activated alarms and the sensors
that were involved. The alarm history clears the next time
the system is armed or can be cleared manually.
Messages
Your security system supports receiving messages from
the Central Station. The messages detail system upgrades,
additional services, special regional weather alerts, etc.
Trouble Alerts
The system monitors itself for abnormal operating
conditions and will alert you if trouble is detected. Trouble
conditions can be reported to the Central Station.
Wireless Sensors
Your security system comes with wireless sensors. Some
sensors are visible, but others may be hidden by door-
jambs or where the sensor is mounted. Depending on your
type of installation and the amount of sensors installed with
the Control Panel, sensors can include but are not limited
to the following:
Door/Window Sensor
Glass Break Sensor
CO Sensor
Key Fob
Motion Detector
Smoke/Heat/Freeze Alarm
Panic Remote Button
Wireless Touch Screen Keypad

BURGLARY PROTECTION
When your system was set up by your installer, wireless sensors were placed to monitor specific doors and windows. The
installer selected these doors and windows as likely places where an unlawful intrusion may occur and be detected. Each
sensor was programmed to have the system react in a specific way. See "
Installer Programmed Options
" on
page 34
for
specifics about each sensor.
Some sensor types (such as smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, panic buttons, etc.) are always active and can
trigger an alarm at any time. Other sensors on protected doors and windows are part of the burglary protection part of the
system that can be turned on or off. Turning on the burglary protection part of the security system is called “
Arming the
System".
The burglary protection part of the system can be armed in two modes:
Stay mode
or
Away mode
.

IMPORTANT:
Security systems installed in a commercial location are for use only as a burglar alarm system and not for
fire protection. This security system has been evaluated and complies with UL 1610. For commercial installations (UL
1610), only one method of communication is to be used. This method of communication is a Cell Radio Module. Copyright ©

SENSOR STATUS
The security system constantly monitors all of the sensors attached to the protected doors and windows in your home or
business. The Control Panel knows if each door or window with sensors is
open
or
closed
. The open or closed condition
of the protected doors and windows is called the
sensor status
.
For maximum security, all the doors and windows on your premises should be closed when you leave the building. In
some cases, such as when using the security system when you stay at home, you may want to leave some doors or
windows open. The system recognizes bypasses to resolve the open doors or windows. See "
Bypassing/Un-Bypassing
Sensors
" on
page 11
.
NOTE:
Before you can arm the system, you must close or bypass all doors and windows with sensors.
CHECKING FOR CLOSED SENSORS
In most cases, you will be arming the security system with all of the sensor-protected doors and windows closed. The
Control Panel provides easy ways to verify that all the sensor-protected doors and windows are closed before arming the
system:


The
Home
button lights blue when all perimeter sensors are closed. The
Home
button is not lit if
an
y
perimeter sensor is open.
Open interior sensors do not change this indication
.


The
Security
button on the display’s
Home
screen lights green when all perimeter sensors are closed. The
Security

button lights orange if
any
perimeter sensor is open.
Open interior sensors do not change this indication
.


The
Arm
button on the display’s
Security
screen and
Menu
screen lights green when all perimeter sensors are
closed. If any interior sensors are open (or when any motion detector is triggered), a house icon displays on the
status bar. The
Arm
button lights orange if
any
perimeter sensor is open.

DEALING WITH A SENSOR FALSE ALARM
When armed, the Control Panel reports alarm conditions on all sensors, both visually (on the status bar, and
through a system alert icon) and audibly (through voice and chime announcements). There are rare times
when an sensor will send a false alarm condition to the Control Panel. The conditions of a false alarm vary
depending on the type of sensor and how that sensor communicates with the Control Panel.

● Perform a System, Sensor, and Panel Test to find any false alarm conditions. See "
System Test
" on
page 29
. See "
Sensor Test
" on
page 29
. See "
Panel Test
" on

SENSOR BYPASSING
Before the system can be armed, all protected doors
and windows must be closed or bypassed. You can
bypass open sensors on protected doors or windows
before arming the system. When a sensor is bypassed,
the system ignores that the door or window is open. Two
types of sensor bypasses are available:


Forced


Manual
In some cases (such as when using the security system
for protection when staying at home), it may be desirable
to leave some sensor-protected doors or windows open.
Temporarily bypassing a sensor for this situation is called
Force Bypassing
.
NOTE:
Force bypasses are automatically removed when
the system is disarmed.
Sensor bypassing is also sometimes used when a sensor
requires service. A sensor’s magnet may be missing, or
an external switch contact connected to a sensor may be
faulty. This causes the sensor to report as
open
to the
Control Panel.
In these conditions, you may need to schedule a service
call with your qualified alarm service technician to repair or
replace the troubled sensor. If the security system needs
to be armed before the sensor can be serviced, the sensor
can be manually bypassed so the rest of the system can
be armed. Depending on programming, manual bypasses
can remain in place until they are manually removed.
NOTE:
Bypassed Sensors offer no protection and cannot
cause an alarm. Use Bypass if you want to arm your
system with one or more sensors open and intentionally
unprotected.
Force Bypass All Sensors
If any sensors are open when the system is disarmed,
the
Arm
button on the panel turns YELLOW. When you
tap the
Arm
button, the system automatically reveals
the
Bypass
screen which lets you arm the system while
forcing it to bypass all open sensors.
To force bypass all open sensors:
1
Ensure a sensor is open, such as a door or window.
2
At the
Security
or
Menu
screen, tap the
YELLOW
Arm

button.
3
At the
Bypass
screen, tap
Bypass All
. This forces the
system to bypass all of the open sensors in the list,
including any open interior sensors.
4
At the
Enter Code
screen, enter a valid
user code
to
bypass the sensor.

NOTE:
The
Quick Bypass
feature can also be
configured by the installer. For details, refer to the
Control Panel’s
Installation & Programming Guide
.
5
At the
Ready to
Arm (Sensors Bypassed)
screen, tap
Stay
or

STAY MODE
Use
Stay mode
to partially arm the system when
individuals will be occupying the premises. This arms
only the sensor-protected perimeter doors and windows.
This leaves interior motion sensors or other interior doors
unarmed.
In a home setting,
Stay mode
is typically used during the
evening hours when occupants are no longer expected
to leave or enter the premises. This allows occupants to
move about the premises without triggering the burglary
alarm. Because all the interior burglary protection is OFF,
an alarm would only be triggered when a sensor-protected
perimeter door or window is opened.
Entry Delay in Stay Mode
Certain sensors, such as a door, can be configured by
your installer to use a delay timer before triggering an
alarm.
This provides a way for an authorized person to enter
using a predetermined door to disarm the system before
an alarm is triggered.
To arm the system using an
Entry Delay
:
1
At the
Security
or
Menu
screen, tap the
Arm
button.
2
At the
Ready to Arm
screen, place a check-mark in
the
Entry Delay
box. This is the default setting.

NOTE:
If you un-check the
Entry Delay
box, an alarm
will be triggered when the sensor is opened while
armed in
Stay
mode.
3
Tap
Stay
to arm the system
NOTE:
When re-entering the premises, the user must
enter through the door(s) programmed to use the
Entry
Delay
timer. This gives the user a specified amount of
time to disarm the system. If the system is not disarmed in
time, an alarm is triggered.
Quick Exit in Stay Mode
A programmable option, called
Quick Exit
may be
displayed on the Security screen while the system is
armed in
Stay mode
. Tap the
Quick Exit
button to start
a timer that allows someone to exit or enter through
a sensor-protected door that is programmed for delay
without having to disarm the entire system. When the
delay timer runs out, the system returns to the normal
Stay mode
.
The
Quick Exit
option can be turned ON or OFF by the
installer. See "
Installer Programmed Options
", on
page 34
,
to understand the options that have been programmed for
your system.
SILENT CONTROL IN STAY MODE
Three options for silencing the beeps and announcements
are available when arming or disarming the system in
Stay
Mode.


At the
Home
or
Security

AWAY MODE
Away mode
is for arming the system when everyone
is leaving the premises.
Away mode
arms all sensor-
protected perimeter doors and windows, interior motion
sensors, interior glass break sensors and any other
sensor-protected interior doors. The premises must be
unoccupied while the system is armed.
Away mode
is
typically used for arming the system during the daytime
hours in a residential location, and non-business hours in
a commercial location.
When the system is armed in
Away mode
, you cannot
move about the premises without triggering the burglary
alarm (if the system is installed with interior motion
detectors). An alarm also occurs if any sensor-protected
door or window is opened or glass breakage is detected (if
glass breakage detectors are installed in your system).
Exit and Entry Delays in Away Mode
Certain sensors, such as a door, can be setup by your
installer to have a delay before triggering an alarm. This
provides a way for an authorized person to exit and re-
enter the premises without triggering an alarm.


Exit Delay
allows time to leave after arming the
system.


Entry Delay
allows time to enter and disarm the
system before an alarm is triggered.
When arming the system in
Away mode
, an
Entry Delay

check box is shown on the
Arming
screen. By default, this
option is checked, so the programmed delay doors allow
time for disarming the system after the door is opened. If
you clear the
Entry Delay
box, the delayed alarm trigger is
removed from all sensor-protected doors programmed for
delay. Those entrances instantly trigger an alarm if they
are opened in

DISARMING THE SYSTEM
To stop the Control Panel from triggering burglary alarms,
the system needs to be disarmed. Disarming turns off the
burglary detection part of the system for sensors that are
not 24-hour sensors. Disarming also stops any type of
alarm in process.
Disarm the system from

. A wireless key fob can also be used to
disarm the system. Entering a
user code
is not required
when disarming with a wireless key fob.
An important feature of the Control Panel is its ability to
warn you if an alarm has occurred while you were away.
If an alarm was triggered while the system was armed,
the alarm siren runs for a preset length of time then
stops. When you enter to disarm the system, instead of
sounding the normal
Entry Delay
beeps, the Control Panel
sounds repeated fast beeps to warn you that an alarm has
occurred while you were away.
When you enter your home to disarm the
system, if you hear fast repeated beeps instead
of the normal
Entry Delay
beeps, use
Extreme
Caution!
An intruder may still be present inside
the building! Wait outside and use a Cell Phone

IF A BURGLARY ALARM OCCURS
If an armed sensor is tripped while the system is armed
in the
Stay
or
Away mode
, an alarm occurs and the siren
sounds. Delayed sensors start the
Entry Delay
to allow time
to disarm the system. Instant sensors trigger the alarm right
away. Most sensors trigger the alarm siren, some sensors
may be set to trigger a silent alarm without sounding the
siren.
Burglary Alarm Siren
If a burglary alarm is tripped while the system is armed, the
Control Panel sounds the alarm siren for a preset time (see
"
Installer Programmed Options
" on
page 34
). After the time
expires, the siren will stop.
The system limits the number of times a sensor can re-
trigger an alarm while the system is armed. The setting
is one to six times per sensor, per arming period (see
"
Installer Programmed Options
" on
page 34
).
Alarm Memory
If an alarm has occurred while the system was armed, the
Disarm
screen shows the time and date of the alarm and
the sensor(s) that triggered the alarm.
After the system is disarmed, the
Alarm Memory
screen
appears. The
Alarm Memory
screen shows the sensor(s)
that caused the alarm. If more than one sensor was
triggered, the display shows the order in which the alarms
occurred.
The alarm memory automatically clears the next time the
system is armed. You can also check the
Clear Alarm
History
box and tap
OK
to manually clear the alarm
memory (24-hour fire and CO sensors that are still violated
remain in alarm memory).
Optional 2-Way Voice Communications
2-way voice communications provides a method for alarm
verification and can provide emergency assistance. The
Control Panel contains a built-in microphone that can
monitor sounds around the area of the Control Panel.
The built-in microphone and speaker allow 2-way voice
communications with a Central Station operator after
an alarm. The operator can converse with people in
the premises through the Control Panel’s speaker and
microphone.
Your installer can set the system to use 2-way voice
communications after an alarm and/or after a panic alarm is
triggered.
NOTE:
If a panic alarm or sensor is set for a silent alarm,
the operator can only listen and will not be able to talk. This
is for your protection.
KEY FOB: ARMING AND DISARMING
Your system may be equipped with one or more wireless
key fobs. Up to eight (8) key fobs can be used to control the
system remotely. Each key fob has four (4) buttons and can

SMOKE, HEAT AND FREEZE PROTECTION
Your residential system should be installed with Smoke,
Heat, and Freeze alarms as well as Carbon Monoxide
detectors as a part of an overall fire, heat, and gas
protection system. Fire protection is active 24 hours a day,
365 days a year.
NOTE:
In
Turkey, systems are installed with Smoke/Heat
alarms.
In the event of a fire or poisonous CO gas emergency, the
installed smoke or carbon monoxide detector automatically
activates your security system. Not only will the fire alarm
itself emit a loud sound, the Control Panel emits an
intermittent and loud horn on an external sounder (if an
external sounder has been installed). The fire alarm sound
continues until the timer expires on the Fire Alarm or until
you enter a
user code
at the Control Panel.
If the Alarm Sounds:


Get out and stay out. Never go back inside for people
or pets.


If you have to escape through smoke, get down low
and go under the smoke.

● Call the fire department from outside your home.
Initiating a Fire Alarm Manually
If you become aware of a fire emergency before your
detector(s) sense an issue:
IMPORTANT:
Always yell “
Fire
” to alert everyone in
proximity.
1
Go the Control Panel and tap the
Emergency


button.
2
At the
Emergency
screen, press and hold the
Fire

button for two (2) seconds.

This action triggers the fire alarm’s sounder and siren.
You can also trigger the fire alarm from the wireless
keypad by holding down the
Fire
button.
3
Get out and stay out of the dwelling. Never go back
inside for people or pets.
4
Call your local Fire Department from a safe location
outside the dwelling.
If the Fire Alarm Sounds Automatically
If the fire alarm sirens are sounding:
1
If flames and smoke are present, yell “
Fire
” to alert
everyone else.
2
Evacuate all occupants from the premises and call your
local Fire Department from a safe location.
OR
1
If no flames or smoke are apparent, investigate the
causes of the alarm.
2
Go to the Control Panel and enter your
user code
to
stop the fire sounder and sirens.
3
Review the
Alarm Memory to determine which sensor
caused the alarm.
4
Go to the sensor and look for a possible reason the
sensor tripped.
5
Correct the condition that caused the detector to trigger
an alarm.
Silencing a False Fire Alarm
If the fire alarm is sounding due to a detector sensing burnt
food or some other non-emergency condition:
1
Silence the fire alarm sounder by entering your
user code
.
2
Review the alarm memory to determine which sensor
caused the alarm (See "
Alarm Memory
" on
page 16
). If
the alarm restarts, there may still be smoke inside the
detector’s sensor. Re-enter your
user code
to stop the
alarm from continuing to sound.
3
Fan the detector for 30 seconds to clear the detector’s
sensor chamber.
4
After the problem has been corrected, from the
Alarm
Memory
screen, check
Clear Alarm History
, then tap
OK
.
NOTE:
Violated Fire and CO sensors clear from
Alarm
Memory
screen only when the sensors return to normal
operation.
5
Carefully inspect your premises for fire, heat, or gas
if your Fire Alarms and CO Detectors remain in alarm
state. Copyright ©

RECOMMENDED FIRE ALARM LOCATIONS
In the United States, this equipment shall be installed in accordance with the
National Fire Alarm Code, ANSI/NFPA
72
, (National Fire Protection Association, Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269). Printed information describing proper
installation, operation, testing, maintenance, evacuation planning, and repair service is to be provided with smoke
detectors and alarms.
NFPA Standard #72
The
National
Fire
Protection Association’s (NFPA) Standard #72
recommends the following placement for smoke
detectors:
Early warning fire detection is best achieved by the installation of fire detection equipment in all rooms and areas of the
household. The equipment should be installed as follows:


Install a smoke detector outside each separate sleeping area, in the immediate vicinity of the bedrooms and on each
additional story of the family living unit, including basements (excludes crawl spaces and unfinished attics).
Also install smoke detectors in the living room, dining room, bedrooms, kitchen, hallway(s), finished attics, furnace
room, utility/storage rooms and attached garages.

GC2e Wireless Security System | User Guide
Do Not Mount a Smoke Alarm Here


Directly above a sink, cooker, stove, or oven


Within 5 feet (1.5 m) of any cooking appliance


Next to a door or window that would be affected by drafts (extractor fan or air vent)


Outside


In or below a cupboard

● Where air flow would be obstructed by curtains or furniture


Where dirt or dust could collect and block the sensor


Where it could be knocked, damaged, or inadvertently removed
Fire-warning equipment for residential occupancies are capable of protecting about 50% of the occupants in potentially
fatal fires. Victims include the elderly, children, and the physically or mentally impaired. Victims include any persons who
cannot escape even when warned early enough that escape should be possible. For these people, other strategies such
as protection-in-place or assisted rescue or escape would be necessary.


Studies show that Smoke/Heat/Freeze Alarms may not awaken all sleeping individuals. Individuals in the household
who are capable of assisting others are responsible for providing assistance to those who may not be awakened by
the audible alarm or those who may be incapable of safely evacuating the area unassisted.

● A battery-powered alarm must have the specific battery type installed, be in good condition, and be mounted
properly.


The use of alcohol or drugs may also impair the ability to hear the audible alarm. For maximum protection, ensure
that an audible alarm is installed on every floor.


Smoke/Heat Alarms only provide protection to the residence if smoke actually reaches the alarm. The Smoke/Heat
Alarm is not a substitute for an insurance policy. Home owners and renters should have adequate insurance to
protect their properties.
Emergency Action Plan
Establish and regularly practice a plan of escape with all members of your household in the event of fire.
The National Fire
Protection Association recommends the following steps:
1
Mount your detector or your interior or exterior sounders where they can be heard by all.
2
Determine two means of escape from each room. One path of escape should lead to the door that permits normal
exit from the building. The other should be an alternate escape (such as a window) should the path to a door be
impassable. Station an escape ladder at such windows if there is a long drop to the ground.
3
Sketch a floor plan of the building. Show windows, doors, stairs, and rooftops that can be used to escape. Indicate
escape routes for each room. Keep these routes free from obstructions and post copies of the escape routes in every
room.
4
Ensure that all bedroom doors are shut while you are asleep to prevent deadly smoke from entering while you
escape.
5
Try the door. If the door is hot, check your alternate escape route. If the door is cool, open it cautiously. Be prepared to
slam the door shut if smoke or heat rushes in.
6
When smoke is present, crawl on the ground. Do not walk upright, since smoke rises and may overcome you. Clearer
air is near the floor.
7
Escape quickly, but do not panic.
8
Establish a place outdoors, away from your house, where everyone can meet and then take steps to contact the
authorities and account for those missing. Choose someone to assure that nobody returns to the house — many die
going back.

Sensor Test
When each sensor is tested, the Control Panel does the
following:


Beep sand announces the sensor’s name


Displays green bar lights by the sensor name


Displays green signal bars to show the strength of that
sensor’s wireless signal.

be sent to the Central Station if the system is disarmed
within a preset period of time after an alarm is triggered.
The alarm report is always sent, but it will be followed by
a cancel report if you disarm the system within the preset
time.
This option helps the Central Station to determine whether
you accidentally caused the alarm or if the alarm was
caused by an intruder. It also lets the Central Station know
that you have returned to the premises. Even if a cancel
message is sent, the Central Station will verify the alarm
and possibly dispatch help. The cancel message may be
processed by the Central Station at a later time depending
on system programming.

● Five Minutes is the default, or _______ Minutes
Dialer Delay
If an alarm occurs, the system will delay dialing for a short
time to allow you to disarm the system in case the alarm
was accidentally tripped. The dialer delay reduces nuisance
traffic to the Central Station and can prevent receiving fines
that many cities impose when police respond to a false
alarm. Your installer also can program the system for no
dialer delay.
NOTE:
The dialer delay is also known as the abort window.
It gives you time to disarm, but doesn’t delay the siren from
sounding. Disarming during the abort window can display a

REGULATORY INFORMATION
Wireless Product Notice
Radio controls provide a reliable communications link and fill an important need in portable wireless signaling; however
,
there are some limitations which must be observed.
For U.S. installations only: The radios are required to comply with FCC Rules and Regulations as Part 15 devices. As
such, they have limited transmitter power and therefore limited range.
A receiver cannot respond to more than one transmitted signal at a time and may be blocked by radio signals that occur
on or near their operating frequencies, regardless of code settings.

● Changes or modifications to the device may void FCC compliance.


Infrequently used radio links should be tested regularly to protect against undetected interference or fault.


A general knowledge of radio and its vagaries should be gained prior to acting as a wholesale distributor or dealer,
and these facts should be communicated to the end users.
FCC Notice
This equipment generates and uses radio frequency energy and if not installed and used properly, that is, in strict
accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, may cause interference to radio and television reception. It has been
type tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B computing device in accordance with Part
15 of FCC Rules, which are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a residential
installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment
does cause 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:


Relocate,the Console away from the TV/radio receiver.


Plug the Console into a different wall outlet so that the Console is on a different branch circuit.


Reorient the TV/radio antenna.


If necessary, the user should consult the dealer or an experienced radio/television technician for additional
suggestions. Copyright ©

IMPORTANT NOTICE
ALARM SYSTEM LIMITATIONS
This security system can not offer guaranteed protection against burglary, fire, or other emergencies. Any alarm system,
whether commercial or residential, is subject to compromise or failure to warn for a variety of reasons. For example:


Intruders may gain access through unprotected openings or have the technical sophistication to bypass an alarm
sensor or disconnect an alarm warning device.


Intrusion detectors (sensors) do not work without power. Battery operated devices do not work without batteries, with
dead batteries, or if the batteries are not put in properly. Devices powered solely by AC do not work if their AC power
supply is cut off for any reason, however briefly.

● Signals sent by wireless sensors may be blocked or reflected by metal before they reach the alarm Control Panel,
even if the signal path has been recently checked during a weekly test. Blockage can occur if a metal object has
been moved into the sensor’s signal path.


A user may not be able to reach a panic or emergency button quickly enough.

● Even if the system responds to the emergency as intended, however
, occupants may have insufficient time to protect
themselves from the emergency situation. In the case of a monitored alarm system, authorities may not respond
appropriately.


Alarm warning devices such as sirens, bells or horns may not alert people or wake up sleepers if they are located
on the other side of closed or partly open doors. If warning devices sound on a different level of the residence
from the bedrooms, then they are less likely to waken or alert people inside the bedrooms. Even persons who are
awake may not hear the warning if the alarm is muffled from a stereo, radio, air conditioner
, or other appliance, or by
passing traffic. Finally, alarm warning devices, however loud, may not warn hearing-impaired people or awaken deep
sleepers.

● While smoke detectors have played a key role in reducing residential fire deaths, they may not activate or provide
early warning for a variety of reasons in as many as 35% of all fires, according to data published by the Federal
Emergency Management Agency. Some of the reasons smoke detectors used in conjunction with this system may
not work are where smoke cannot reach the detectors, such as in chimneys, in walls, or roofs, or on the other side
of closed doors. Smoke detectors may have been improperly installed and positioned. Smoke detectors may not
sense fires that start where smoke cannot reach the detectors, such as in chimneys, in walls, or roofs, or on the
other side of closed doors. Smoke detectors also may not sense a fire on another level of a residence or building.
A second floor detector, for example, may not sense a first floor or basement fire. Moreover, smoke detectors have
sensing limitations. No smoke detector can sense every kind of fire every time. In general, detectors may not always
warn about fires caused by carelessness and safety hazards like smoking in bed, violent explosions, escaping gas,
improper storage of flammable materials, overloaded electrical circuits, children playing with matches, or arson.
Depending upon the nature of the fire and/or the locations of the smoke detectors, the detector
, even if it operates as
anticipated, may not provide sufficient warning to allow occupants to escape in time to prevent injury or death.


This equipment, like other electrical devices, is subject to component failure. Even though this equipment is designed
to last as long as ten years, the electronic components could fail at any time. The most common cause of an alarm
system not functioning when an intrusion or fire occurs is inadequate maintenance.


Although, installing an alarm system may make homeowners eligible for lower insurance rates, an alarm system
is not a substitute for insurance. Homeowners, property owners, and renters should continue to act prudently in
protecting themselves and continue to insure their lives and property.
Panel Operating Conditions
For optimal performance, the Control Panel should be operated under the following conditions:


Operating Temperature
0°C to 49°C (32°F to 120°F)


Humidity
