Burglary Protection
To detect an intrusion, ensure the GC3 Panel is in the
System Ready to Arm
state (see "Bypass Sensors" on
page 9
). Then, arm the system.
Arm the System (Stay Mode)
Apply this mode when people and/or pets will be staying inside. Typically, this mode arms the premises' perimeter zones (for ex
ample, doors and windows) and
leaves the interior zones (for example, motion detectors) disarmed.
To arm the system:




1 2 3
IMPORTANT:
Consult your installer to determine if the
Quick Exit
feature is enabled on your system. When
Quick Exit
is allowed and
the system is armed in Stay Mode, you have the option of tapping the
Quick Exit
button on the System Armed screen to start the
Exit
Delay
countdown. This gives you time to exit the premises without having to disarm the system. At the end of the countdown, the syst
em
automatically re-arms itself in Stay Mode.
Tap
Arm Stay
. The system announces,
“Arming Stay.”
During the countdown, you have the option to
tap
Silence
which will extend the length of the
timer and silence the audible countdown.
After the countdown expires, the system is
armed. The system announces, “System
Armed Stay.” 8

Arm the System (Away Mode)
Apply this mode when people and pets will be leaving the premises. Typically, the installer con
fi
gures the system so this mode arms both the perimeter zones (for
example, doors and windows) and the interior zones (for example, motion detectors).
To arm the system:


1
Tap
Arm Away
.
2
Exit the premises before the audible
Exit
Delay
countdown expires. During the
countdown, you can tap
Silence
which
will extend the length of the timer and
silence the audible countdown.
3
After the
Exit Delay
expires, the
system announces, “System Armed
Away.”
NOTE:
Consult your installer to determine if the
Auto Stay
feature is enabled. For compliance with
ANSI/SIA CP-01-2010
, when
Auto
Stay
is enabled and you arm the system in Away Mode, you must exit the premises through an Exit/Entry door. If no one exits out
through an Exit/Entry door by the end of the
Exit Delay
countdown, the system automatically arms itself in Stay Mode. For more in-depth
information, see the
GC3 User Guide
.
NOTE:
Consult your installer to determine if the
Exit Delay Restart
feature is enabled. When this feature is enabled, if you exit and then
re-enter the premises before the Exit Delay countdown expires, the Exit Delay countdown restarts one time before the system arm
s. For
compliance with
ANSI/SIA CP-01-2010
, this feature is enabled by default. For more in-depth information, see the
GC3 User Guide
. 9

Bypass Sensors
When you open a protected door or window, the
System Not Ready to Arm
message appears and reveals the zone in YELLOW on the
Sensors Not Ready
list.
Before you can arm the system, place the system into the
Ready to Arm
state by (1) walking to the sensor and closing it, or (2) bypassing the sensor.
To bypass the open sensors:


1
Review the
Sensors Not Ready
list
and close any desired sensors. If
you want to bypass the sensors in
the list, tap
Bypass All
.
2
Enter a valid user code. If the installer
enabled the
Quick Bypass
feature, you
are NOT prompted for your code and will
skip this step.
3
The system bypasses the sensor. You have
the option to tap yellow bubble (
) to view
the sensor(s) in the
Bypassed Sensors
list. 10
Copyright © 2019 Nortek Security & Control LLC
Disarm the System from Away Mode
To disarm the system from Away mode:
1

Enter the premises through a designated Entry Delay sensor-protected door.
Disarm the System
When the system is armed, it is actively protecting the premises. When you no longer want the system to protect the premises, y
ou can disarm the
system.
Disarm the System from Stay Mode
To disarm the system from Stay mode:
1
At the
Security
or
Menu
screen, tap
Disarm
.
2
Enter your code to disarm the system.
TIP:
If a false burglary alarm is activated while the system is armed (for example, someone inadvertently opens a protected door/
window) and you want to cancel or silence the alarm, see “If You Want to Cancel/Silence a False Burglary Alarm “ on
page 11
.
2
Enter your code to disarm the system.
NOTE:
Consult your installer to determine the length of the Entry Delay feature. For compliance with
ANSI/SIA CP-01-2010
, the default setting is 30 seconds. For more in-depth information, see the
GC3
User Guide
. 11

In the Event of a Burglary Alarm
Sensors have been installed to protect perimeter doors and windows for the premises. Motion detectors may also be installed to
protect interior areas. Each
sensor is programmed to alert the system to react in a speci
fi
c way should its protection zone be violated.
When the system is armed, it initiates the following sequence of events when a protected zone is violated:
1. For instant sensors, the alarm siren immediately sounds and continues to sound until a User Code is entered or for the amoun
t of time speci
fi
ed by the
Burglary Bell Cutoff Time
setting. The factory default setting is four (4) minutes. Consult your installer to determine the cutoff time for your system.
2. For delayed sensors, the system immediately starts the
Entry Delay
countdown to allow time to disarm the system. At the end of the countdown, the
alarm siren sounds and will continue to sound until a User Code is entered or for the amount of time speci
fi
ed by the
Burglary Bell Cutoff Time
setting. For
compliance with
ANSI/SIA CP-01-2010
, the factory default setting for this countdown is 30 seconds. This is designed to reduce the transmission of false
alarm reports. Consult your installer to determine the length of your system’s countdown.
3. After the report is received by the Central Station, an operator will respond per the terms de
fi
ned in your individual Service Agreement with your 2GIG
alarm dealer. For more in-depth information about speci
fi
c alarm protocols, contact your alarm dealer.
If You Want to Cancel/Silence a False Burglary Alarm
In the event of a false alarm (for example, if you enter the home while it is armed and do not disarm the system before the cou
ntdown expires), you can silence the
alarm and cancel the alarm report using one of these options:

»

If you disarm the system BEFORE the countdown expires
, the system silences the alarm siren and does not transmit an alarm report to the Central
Station.

»
If you disarm the system AFTER the Abort Window Dialer Delay countdown expires
, the system silences the alarm siren and transmits an alarm
cancellation report to the Central Station. For a cancellation report to be transmitted, you must disarm the system before the
Alarm Cancel Time
expires.
For compliance with
ANSI/SIA CP-01-2010
, the factory default setting is
fi
ve (5) minutes. Consult your installer to determine the setting for your system.
Cross Sensor Zone
A cross sensor zone is comprised of two wireless sensors and both sensors must be tripped within a programmed period of time be
fore the system activates an
alarm. For compliance with
ANSI/SIA CP-01-2010
, if only one of the sensors in the cross sensor zone is tripped within the programmed period of time, the system
automatically transmits a trouble report to the Central Station but does not activate an alarm.
Swinger Shutdown Count
The swinger shutdown count de
fi
nes the maximum number of times a zone’s sensor can activate (i.e., “trip”) an alarm during a single arming session. After
the sensor trips an alarm for the count, the sensor cannot set off an alarm until eight (8) hours passes or until the system is
disarmed and then rearmed. For
compliance with
ANSI/SIA CP-01-2010
, the default swinger shutdown count must be set to two (2) trips. 12

If You Need to Use the Duress Code
In the event that you
fi
nd yourself needing to transmit a user duress report to the Central Station (for example, being held by an unwanted intruder a
gainst your
will), use the steps below to input your system’s unique Duress Code. This noti
fi
es the Central Station that you are in a duress situation without alerting the intruder
that you have contacted your provider for assistance. To learn how to create a unique Duress Code for your system, see “Change
the Master User or Duress
Code” on
page 16
.
To use your system's unique Duress Code:
1
If the system is armed, tap
Disarm
. If the system is disarmed, tap
the system logo in the top right corner.
2
Enter the
Duress Code
.
After the duress report is received by the Central Station, an operator will respond per the terms de
fi
ned in your individual Service Agreement with your 2GIG
alarm dealer. For more in-depth information about speci
fi
c duress situation protocols, contact your alarm dealer.
NOTE:
For compliance with ANSI/SIA CP-01-2010, the Duress Code must be a unique code. For more in-depth information, see the GC3 Use
r
Guide. 13

Fire and Emergency Protection
Smoke and Carbon Monoxide (CO) detectors may be installed to protect the occupants of the dwelling from harmful, and possibly d
eadly effects of
smoke, heat, and
fi
re-related dangers. The system’s
fi
re and emergency protection features are always protecting the premises.

Manual Alarms
You can notify the Central Station of an emergency event by manually activating the alarm at the GC3 Panel. For compliance with

ANSI/SIA CP-01-2010
, the
Alarm
button on the GC3 Panel is designed with a double-action trigger. This means you must
fi
rst press the
Alarm
button on the panel and then touch and
hold the appropriate alarm button on the touchscreen. This reduces the risk of inadvertently transmitting a false alarm to the
Central Station.
To activate a manual alarm:
1
Press the
Alarm
button on the GC3 Panel.
2
Touch and hold the
Panic
,
Fire
, or
Emergency
button for two (2) seconds.
NOTE:
Consult your installer to determine if one or more Wireless Keypads, Wireless 4-Button Key Fob Remotes, or Panic Button Remote
s
have been con
fi
gured to trigger alarms on your system when the appropriate button or button-combination is pressed. If con
fi
gured to trigger
alarms, the remote will transmit an alert to the system. The system then transmits the appropriate report to the Central Statio
n. For more
in-depth information, see the
GC3 User Guide

Security Codes
The system supports a total of 101 unique security codes, which includes the types of security codes detailed below and one (1)
Installer Code which is reserved
for use by 2GIG alarm dealers and their professional installers.
Types of Security Codes
The system supports three (3) types of security codes:

»
Master User:
You are provided one (1) Master User Code for accessing the
System Settings and, depending how the installer con
fi
gures your system,
other PIN-protected features. The factory default setting for the code is
1111 or
111111.
Consult with your dealer to determine if your user pin code length is 4
or 6 digits. You should always change the default code to a unique one. See
“Change the Master User or Duress Code” in the next section.

»
User:
You can create up to 98 unique user access codes. This is the code that
occupants use to arm and/or disarm the system. See “Create a User Code” on
page 17
.

»
Smart Areas:
If Smart Areas are enabled, user can be assigned to one or
more areas.

»
Duress:
You are provided one (1) Duress Code. See “If You Need to Use
the Duress Code” on
page 12
. Some 2GIG alarm dealers and/or installers
change this to their own default code. To protect your system, the person
who knows the Master User Code should always change the default code to
a unique one that is known only by trusted system users. See “Change the
Master User or Duress Code” in the next section. 16
Copyright © 2019 Nortek Security & Control LLC

Change the Master User or Duress Code
The
Master User Code
provides users with the ability to access the
System Settings
menu and, depending on your system con
fi
guration, may also provide
access to other pin-protected features. The
Duress
code lets users send a silent duress report to the Central Station. See "If You Need to Use the Duress Code"
on
page 12
.
IMPORTANT:
When customizing codes for your system, ensure they are simple enough to remember, but not something that can be
easily guessed or discovered by an intruder. For example, do not use the dwelling’s physical address, telephone digits, birth d
ates, or
birth years. Codes should only be given to trusted individuals. For example, in a residential installation the primary homeowne
r may know
the Master User Code, while family members and/or legal occupants may only know their individual user code and the Duress Code.

, enter the system’s Master User Code, and then tap the
Users
