RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PROPER PROTECTION

The Following Recom
mendations for the Location of Fire and Burglary Detection Devices Help Provide Proper Coverage for
the Protected Premises
.
Recommendations for Smoke and Heat Detectors

Regarding the number and placement of smoke/heat detectors, we subscribe to the recommendations contained in the National
Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) Standard #72 noted below.


Early warning fire detection is best achieved by the installation of fire detection equipment in all rooms and areas of the household
as follows: For minimum
protection, a smoke detector should be installed outside of each separate sleeping area, and on each
additional floor of a multi
-floor family living unit, including basements. The installation of smoke detectors
in kitchens, attics (finished
or unfinished)
, or in garages is not normally recommended.

For additional protection, the NFPA recommends that you install
heat
or
smoke detectors
in the living room, dining room,
bedroom(s), kitchen, hallway(s), attic, furnace room, utility and storage rooms, basement
s and attached garages
.

In addition, we recommend the following

Install a smoke detector inside every bedroom where a smoker sleeps.


Install a smoke detector inside every bedroom where someone sleeps with the door partly or completely closed. Smoke could be
blocked by the closed door. Also, an alarm in the hallway outside may not wake up the sleeper if the door is closed.


Install a smoke detector inside bedrooms where electrical appliances (such as portable heaters, air conditioners or humidifiers) are
used.


Install a smoke detector at both ends of a hallway if the hallway is more than 40 feet (12 meters) long.


Install smoke detectors in any room where an alarm control is located, or in any room where alarm control connections to an A
C
source or phone lines
are made. If detectors are not so located, a fire within the room could prevent the control from reporting a fire
or an intrusion
THIS CONTROL COMPLIES WITH NFPA REQUIREMENTS FOR TEMPORAL PULSE
SOUNDING OF FIRE NOTIFICATION APPLIANCES.




Recommendations
for Proper Intrusion Protection


For proper intrusion coverage, sensors should be located at every possible point of entry to a home or commercial premises. T
his
would include any skylights that may be present, and the upper windows in a multi
-level buildi
ng.


In addition, we recommend that a communications backup be used in the security system so that alarm signals can still be sent
to
the Central Moni
toring Station if
communications are out of order (alarm signals are normally sent over the cellular and/or
Wi
-
Fi/internet networks).


This security system is designed for use with devices manufactured or approved by Resideo Technologies, Inc., through
its subsidiary Ademco Inc. (“Resideo”), for use with your security system. Your security system is not designed for use
with any device that may be attached to your security system's keypad or other communicating bus if Resideo has not
approved such device for use with your security system. Use of any such unauthorized device may cause damage or
compromise the per
formance of your security system and affect the validity of your Resideo limited warranty. When you
purchase devices that have been manufactured or approved by Resideo you acquire the assurance that these devices
have been thoroughly tested to ensure optim
um performance when used with your security system
.

NOTE:
If “15” is entered to bypass an answering machine, and a 4286 Phone
Module is included in the system, you should note the following:

When calling in
from an off
-premises phone, the user should make the initial call,
allow 1 or 2 rings only, then hang up, then call again. The phone module will now
seize the line, and 2 long tones sound, followed by the usual voice prompt for the
access code. If this pr
ocedure is not followed, phone module operation will not be
possible.

PAGER OPTIONS (
Q
160-

Q
172)

The system can send various reports to several pagers (VISTA
-20P = up to 4; VISTA
-15P = up to 2).
To program pager reporting, do the following:

1. Enter the pager phone number(s), preface characters, and pager report options in data fields *160
- *171.

2. Enable Pager Delay, if desired, in field *172 (delays alarm reporting for ALL pagers).

3. Make sure appropriate user open/close pager reports are enabled (see Security Codes
section in User Guide)
. Users that perform
actions in partition 1 wil
l, if enabled, attempt to report to all pagers enabled for open/close reporting in partition 1. Users that
perform actions in partition 2 will, if enabled, attempt to report to all pagers enabled for open/close reporting in partition 2.

4. If using latchkey pager report, define the latchkey report schedule using Scheduling mode (master code + [#] [6] [4] then select
event type
03
). System must be armed for the Latchkey report to be sent.

5. If using a function key to manually send a message to a pager, use *57 Function Key Menu mode to define the key (function
01
).

6. If reporting zone alarms and troubles to a pager, use *81 Zone List menu mode to assign the zones associated with each pager
(zone lists 9-
12

).

† VISTA-
15P supports zone lists 9 and 10 only.

keypad using data fields *182-
*185.



IMPORTANT:
Be careful when selecting combinations of options for configurable zone types. Contradictory options can
cause unpredictable r
esults.


Configurable Zone Type Options

Auto Restore
(entry 2): Faults on zones set for this option are cleared; restore messages sent upon restoral of faults.

Vent Zone
(entry 2): Zones set for this option are ignored if faulted when arming the system, but are protected if the zone is later restored
(e.g., an open window can be ignored when arming, but if the window is later closed, it will be protected; opening the window
again causes
an alarm.)
NOTE: Vent zones are not for use in UL installations.

Bypass
Disarmed
(entry 4): Zones set for this option can be bypassed only while the system is disarmed.

Bypass Armed
(entry 4): Zones set for this option can be bypassed when the system is armed.

Dial Delay
(entry 6): Alarms on zones set for this option participate in dial delay central station reporting, if system dial delay enabled in
field *50.

Fault Delay
(entry 6): Faults on zones set for this option are delayed by the time set in field *87. Do not use this option if using entr
y/exit
delay for this zone type.

Faults Display
(entry 7): Selects how faults on zones set for this zone type are displayed.

Power Reset/Verification
(entry 7): Selects whether the system resets power (when user enters code + OFF), and whether the system
performs alarm verification (see description for zone type 16 in
Zone Type Definitions
section) when a fault occurs on these zones.

Use Entry Delay
(entry 8): Selects whether to use the system’s entry delay times.

Use Exit Delay
(entry 8): Selects whether to use the system’s exit delay t
ime.

Interior Type
(entry 8):

NOTES:

1. Fault Delay: Do not use the “Fault Delay”
option with a configurable zone type if it
is set for an entry or exit delay, otherwise
unpredictable results may occur.


Fault Delay applies only to alarms and
troubles.

2. To create an interior type zone, select
“respond as interior zone type” (entry 8,
interior type = yes)
, and set zone
response to “fault” in entries 3-
4 to
ensure fault displays; do not set as
“normal,” “alarm,” or “trouble.”

3. Do not set fire zones to respond as a
“fault” (entries 1-
6), otherwise faults will
not display unless the [

] key is pressed.

4. 4219/4229 modules must use EOLRs or
unpredictable results may occur.

5. RF Zones: The “open” option in entries
1, 3, and 5 is not applicable for RF
zones. Use the “intact EOL” option for
normal RF zone conditions and “shorted”
for off
-normal RF zone conditi
ons.

6. a. Zone-
Doubling/Double-
Balanced: A
short on either zone of a zone-
doubled
pair or on a double-

Zones and Partitio
ns

Each protection zone needs to be programmed with various attributes using *56 Zone Programming mode or
Q
58 Expert Programming
Mode.
Using this mode, enter the zone number to be programmed and make appropriate entries at the prompts. Finally, Confirm the serial
number of wireless transmitter zones.

The VISTA
-20P system can control two independent areas of protection (known as partitions) for use by independent users, if desired, by

simply assigning zones to one or the other partition during zone programm
ing. The VISTA
-20P, by default, automatically distributes users
between the two partitions. The master user can change the user number distributions.
Zones can also be assigned to a common partition, which is an area shared by users of both partitions (such as a lobby in a building). This
allows either partition to arm, while leaving the common partition disarmed for access into the other partition. The following describes the
functioning of the VISTA
-20P common partition:

• The common zone sounds and reports alarms only when both partitions are armed. If only one partition is armed, the system ignores
faults on the common zone.

• Either partition may arm its system if the common zone is faulted, but once armed, the other partition will not be able to ar
m u
nless the
common zone is first bypassed or the fault is corrected.

• Faults on the common zone are displayed on common zone keypads, and will also appear on another partition’s keypad when that
partition is armed.

• Either partition can clear and restore t
he common zone after an alarm.

All of the RF transmitters have one or more unique factory

assigned input (loop) ID codes. Each of the inputs requires its
own programming zone

programming zones).

RF Transmitters can be enrolled as one of the following types:

Type

Description

RF

(Supervised RF)

Sends periodic check
-
in signals, as well as
fault, restore, and low
-battery signals. The
trans. must stay within receiver's range.

UR

(Unsupervised RF)

Sends all the signals that the “RF”
type
does, but the control does not supervise
the check
-in signals. The transmitter may
therefore be carried off
-
premises.

BR

(Unsupervised
Button RF)

Sends only fault signals. It will not send a
low
-battery signal until it is activated. The
transmitter m
ay be carried off
-
premises.


NOTE:


For the built
-in hardwired zones, the Input Device type is
automatically displayed as HW and cannot be edited.


To change the input type of a previously programmed
wireless device (type RF, UR, BR) to a wired zone (t
ype AW),
you must first delete transmitter’s serial number (see To

The system provides the ability to program each of the four keypad function keys to perform one of 12 system oper
ations.
The end user can then activate the function by simply pressing and holding the programmed key for 2 seconds. Typical
functions (listed below) include single-
button arming, turning lights on/off, or single-
button paging.

To assign emergency key functions (function key option “00”), first program the respective emergency zone number (95 for
“A” key, 96 for “C” key, 99 for “B” key) with the desired zone type using

56 (or

58) Zone Programming mode, then use

57
Function Key menu mode to assign the desired key.

To use a function key to activate a relay action (

57 Menu mode key function 07), use

79 Menu mode to map the output, and
use

80 Menu mode to define the output’s action; select system operation type “66.”

To use a function key for a user macro, use

57 menu mode to activate the desired key, then define the actual macro
functions using the user code + [#] + [6] [6] command.

Info
(*79/*80 Menu Mode)


Output Devices:

The VISTA-
20P system supports up to 16 relays and/or Powerline Carrier devices (X
-10 devices)
plus 2 built
-in trigger outputs in any combination. These 18 “outputs” are assigned to system
-wide
output numbers (01-
18). Use *79 Menu Mode to assign output numbers and map them to device
addresses.


The VISTA-
15P supports 8 relays and 2 built
-in trigger outputs (total 10 outputs).


Output Functions:

The system also provides installer
-defined output functions, which can
be assigned to any of the
physical outputs. Therefore, the action of any one of the outputs can be based on as many of these
defined functions as desired. This lets a single relay or X
-10 device perform many functions.


The control supports: V20P = up to
48 defined functions; V15P = up to 24 functions


Use *80 Menu Mode to define output functions.


WARNING:
Relays and output devices are not recommended for life safety applications.


NOTE:
When navigating the *79 and *80 menus: The [
Q
] key is used to accept
an entry and advance to
the next prompt. The [#] key is used to
go
back to the last question to check or change an entry. Press [

Programming Output Devices
1. Use *79 Menu Mode to assign module and output numbers and map them to device addresses.


NOTE:
You must map output devices using *79 Menu Mode
before
you can use *80 menu Mode.

2. Use *80 Menu Mode to create output definitions, which control the output devices, if desired.

3. Use *81 Zone List Menu mode to define zone
lists for use with output devices if the device action is based on more than
one zone.


To program a device for manual activation (user code + [#] [7] / [#] [8] + 2-
digit device number) or for scheduled automatic
activation, simply map the device using *79 Menu mode.


To program a device to automatically activate upon a system event (or function key), use *79 Menu mode to map the
device, then use *80 Menu mode to define the automated device action.

The Output Definition Worksheet is on page

Use this mode to program output function definitions (up to 48 functions) that provide automated control of any of the output

devices, based on events occurring on individual zones or zones with certain zone types.
Each output definition is identified
by an output function number, and includes the following components:


Output Definition Components

Component

Description

Output Function No.

A re
ference number that defines an output’s characteristics.

Activated By

Determines whether the initiating event occurs on a zone, a zone list, or a zone type.

Event

Event that triggers the output action. Can be an event occurring on a specific zone number
or a zone list, or a
specific zone type.

Partition

If the output is activated by zone type, this defines the partition in which the programmed event is to cause the
device action.

Output Action

Defines the action of the relay/X
-
10 device when the defined

event occurs. Can close for 2 seconds, stay
closed until reset, continuously pulse (1-
second close-
open-
close
-open, etc.), toggle the device state, or
activate for a defined duration (set in data field *177).

Output No.

Assigns this function to a specifi
c output number (defined in *79 Menu Mode). This is the output number that
will perform this function upon the triggering event. Note that each defined function is associated with only one
output number. This means that if more than one output device needs
to perform this particular function, you
need to define another output function number with the same attributes, but assign the appropriate output
number. (i.e. output devices can be assigned more than one function number, but each function number can
onl
y be assigned a single output number.


For example,
if you want to pulse a strobe light upon fire alarms on zone 4 using a relay mapped to output number 2 (as
programmed in *79 Menu Mode), program the following in *80 Menu Mode:

Prompt

Entry

Output Funct.
#

Adding Custom Words (will not be annunciated by voice keypads or touchscreens)

You can
add
up to 10 installer
-defined words to the built
-in vocabulary, which can then be used when programming zone
descriptors. Each of the 10 words can
consist of a word string of one
or more words, but no more than
ten
characters can
be used for each word or word string.

When adding custom words, the keypad keys perform the following functions:

[4]
Moves cursor one space to the left.

[6]
Moves cursor one space to the right.

[8]
Saves t
he new word in the system's memory.

1. Select Custom Word mode (enter 1) when the prompt “CUSTOM WORD ?” is displayed.

2. Enter the number (01–
10†) of the custom word or word string to be created, corresponding to index numbers 245
- 254 respectively (for
example, if you are creating the first custom word or word-
string, enter 01, for the second, enter 02, etc.). A cursor will now appear at
the beginning of the second line.


† or 11, 12, 13 for partition 1, partition 2 and common lobby descriptors respectiv
ely. See Assigning Partition Descriptors paragraph
below.


NOTE:
Custom words 8, 9, and 10 are “reminder words” that are programmed using Scheduling Mode.

3. Refer to the Character List of letters, numbers, and symbols on a following page.


Press [#], foll
owed by the two-
digit entry for the first letter you would like to display (e.g., # 65 for “A”).


Press [6] to advance t
he cursor to the right, in position for the next character.


To delete a character,
simply enter the SPACE character (#32)
at the unwant
ed character’s location.
.
4. Repeat Step 3 to create the desired word(s). Note that the “4” key can be used to move the cursor to the left, if necessary. Remember,
no word or word-
string can exceed 10 characters
(except custom message/partition descriptor word numbers 11, 12, and 13, which can
be a maximum of 16 characters)
.
5. When the word is complete, press the [8] key to save the custom word(s) and return to the “CUSTOM WORD ?” display.

Repeat Steps 2–
5 for other custom words to be entered. To change a custom word, just overwrite it. When all words have been
programmed,
press [0] to return to the Descriptor entry. The custom word(s) will be automatically added to the built
-in vocabulary.


Assigning Partition/Custom Message Descriptors
VISTA-
15P: You can create a custom message display that appears on alpha keypads instead of “System Ready.” To assign a custom
message, use word number 11 as described below.

VISTA-
20P: You can assign a partition descriptor (up to 16 characters) for each partition plus the
common lobby. The system displays the
appropriate partition’s word instead of “DISARMED READY TO ARM.”

Use the same procedure as for adding custom words (described above), but use these word numbers in step 2:


11 = partition 1 ___________________________________________

12 = partition 2 ___________________________________________ (VISTA
-20P only)


13 = common lobby ________________________________________ (VISTA
-20P only)

Once a custom word is entered in any of these word locations (11-
13), the system d
isplays t
he appropriate partition’s word
instead of the default “DISARMED READY TO ARM” message VISTA-

Uploading/Downloading via the Internet
UL
: Up/downloading via the Internet has not been evaluated by UL.


This control, when
used with a compatible Internet/Intranet Communication Device, supports upload/download programming
capability via the Internet using the AlarmNet network or, depending on the communication module used, a Private local area
network (Intranet). This allows
site maintenance independent of central station monitoring, and modification to sites globally via
the Internet. Depending on the module used, Internet connection from the protected premises is either via high speed
(broadband) cable or phone service, or v
ia the
digital cellular network
.

Refer to the instructions provided with the communication module for information regarding its installation, programming, and
registration. The System Requirements table below lists two sets of system requirements, depending upon whether you intend to
communicate over the Internet or whether you are communicating over a Private LAN (Intranet).

Zone Type Definitions

Zone types define the way in which the system responds to
faults in each zone.

Type 00 Zone Not Used

Program a zone with this zone type if the zone is not used.

Type 01 Entry/Exit Burglary #1



Assign to zones that are used for primary entry and exit.


Provides entry delay when zone is faulted if control is
armed
in the Away, Stay, or Night
-Stay modes.

No entry delay provided when the panel is armed in the
Instant/Maximum mode.

Entry delay #1 is programmable for each partition (field *35).


Exit delay begins whenever the control is armed, regardless of
the arming mode selected, and is programmable (field
Q
34).

Type 02 Entry/Exit Burglary #2



Assign to zones that are used for entry and exit and require
more time than the primary entry/exit point.

Provides a secondary entry delay,
similar to
entry
delay #1.

Entry delay #2 is programmable for each partition (field *36).


Exit delay is same as described for Type 01.

Type 03 Perimeter Burglary


Assign to all sensors or contacts on exterior doors and
windows.


Provides an instant alarm if the zone is faulted when the panel is
armed in the Away, Stay, Night
-Stay, Instant or Maximum
modes.

Type 04 Interior Follower



Assign to a zone covering an area such as a foyer, lobby, or
hallway through which one must pass upon entry (to and from
the keypad)
.

Provides a delayed alarm (using the programmed entry 1
time) if the entry/exit zone is faulted first. Otherwise this zone
type gives an instant alarm.

Active when the panel is armed in the Away mode.

Bypassed automatically when the panel is armed
in the Stay
or Instant modes;
if armed in Night
-Stay mode, zones
assigned to zone list 05 (night
-stay zone list) are not
bypassed when system armed in Night
-Stay mode.

Type 05 Trouble by Day/Alarm by Night



Assign to a zone that contains a foil
-protected door or window
(such as in a store), or to a zone covering a sensitive area
such as a stock room, drug supply room, etc.

Can also be used on a sensor or contact in an area where
immediate notification of an entry is desired.


Provides an instant alar
m if faulted when armed in the Away,
Stay, Night
-Stay, Instant or Maximum (night) modes.

During the disarmed state (day), the system will provide a
latched trouble sounding from the keypad (and a central
station report, if desired).
Type 06 24-
hr Silen
t Alarm


Usually assigned to a zone containing an emergency button.


Sends a report to the central station but provides no keypad
display or sounding.

Type 07 24-
hour Audible Alarm


Assign to a zone that has an emergency button.


Sends a report to the central station, and provides an alarm
sound at the keypad, and an audible external alarm.

Type 08 24-
hour Auxiliary Alarm


Assign to a zone containing an emergency button, or to a
zone containing monitoring devices such as water or
temperature sensor
s.

Sends a report to the central station and provides an alarm
sound at the keypad. (No bell output.)

Type 09 Supervised Fire

Provides a fire alarm on short circuit and a trouble condition
on open circuit. A fire alarm produces a pulsing bell output.

This zone type is always active and cannot be bypassed.


Type 10 Interior w/Delay



Provides entry delay (using the programmed entry time), if
tripped when the panel is armed in the Away mode.


Entry Delay 1 begins whenever sensors in this zone are
violated, regardless of whether
an entry/exit delay zone was
tripped first.

Bypassed when the panel is armed in the Stay or Instant modes; if
armed in Night
-Stay mode, zones assigned to zone list 05 (night
-
stay zone list) are not bypassed w
hen system armed in Night
-Stay
mode.

Type 12 Monitor Zone


Works as a dynamic monitor of a zone fault/trouble (not alarm). In
the case of a short/open, the message, "*ALARM*
-24 Hr. Non-
Burg.
-#XXX " (where XXX is the zone number) will be sent to the
Cen
tral Station. The system keypad will display a “check” message
indicating the appropriate zone (but keypad beeping does not
occur). Upon restoral of the zone, the message, "*RESTORE*
-24
Hr. Non
-Burg.
-#XXX

" will be sent to the Central Station.

The “check” message will automatically disappear from the keypad
dynamically, when the zone restores; a user code + off sequence is
not needed to reset the zone.

Faults of this zone type are independent of the system, and can
exist at the time of arming without
interference.


Since this is a “trouble” zone type, do not use this zone type with
relays set to activate upon “alarm.”

Type 14 24 Hour Carbon Monoxide Monitor



Assigned to any zone with a carbon monoxide detector.

A carbon monoxide alarm produces
keypad and detector sounding
(does not affect bell output
).

Always active and cannot be bypassed.

Type 16 Fire w/Verification


Provides a fire alarm when zone is shorted, but only after
the
alarm
is verified
to help eliminate
false alarms due to elect
rical or
physical transients
.

Verifies alarm by resetting smoke detectors after short is detected
(removes power 7 seconds for zone 1, 3 seconds for trigger
output). Another short circuit within 90 seconds triggers fire alarm
,
otherwise first alarm is i
gnored.


Provides a trouble response when zone is open.

Type 20 Arm
-Stay (BR only)


Arms the system in Stay mode when the zone is activated.

Pushbutton units send the user number to the central station when
arming or disarming.


User number for butt
on must be assigned.

Type 21 Arm
-Away (BR only)



Arms the system in Away mode when the zone is activated.

Pushbutton units send the user number to the central station when
arming or disarming.


User number for button must be assigned.

Type 22 Disarm (BR only)



Disarms the system when the zone is activated.


User number for button must be assigned.

Type 23
*
No Alarm Response


Can be used on a zone when an output relay action is desired, but
with no accompanying alarm (e.g., lobby door access).

Type 24 Silent Burglary


Usually assigned to all sensors or contacts on exterior doors and
windows where bells and/or sirens are NOT desired.


Provides an instant alarm, with NO audible indication at any
keypad or external sounder, if the zone is faulted
when the system
is armed in the Away, Stay, Instant, or Maximum modes.


A report is sent to the central station.

Type 77 Keyswitch


Assign to zone wired to a keyswitch.


Do not use input type “BR” devices with this zone type.

Types 90-
93 Configurable


Allows for various custom responses. Options include response to
ent
ry/exit delays, response opens/shorts, types of alarm/trouble
sounding, dial delay, and unique Contact ID report codes. Types 92
and 93 can only be programmed via downloader. UL installations:
Zone Types 90 -
93 may not be used as fire or burglar alarm zones
on fire or UL burglar alarm installations.


*
The system can still be armed when these zone types are in a
faulted condition.

frequency communication channel –
the
Cell
communicator may be used. The Subscriber control unit must be programmed that

a)
it transmits over the both channels to the receiver
once every 24 hours;

b)
failure of communication of either channel is reported to the Central Station on the other channel within 240 sec;

c)
the first attempt to send a status change signal shall utilize the Telephone line. Where it is known to have failed, transmission
attempts over the alternate communication channel shall occur.


Protection circuit conductors shall form double fully supervised circuits so arranged that an alarm signal will be initiated

AVIS:
l’étiquette d’Industrie Canada identifie le matériel homologué. Cette étiquette certifie que le matériel est conforme aux normes de protection, d’exploitation et
de sécurité des réseaux de télécommunications, comme le prescrivent les documents concernant les exigences techniques relativ
es au matériel terminal. Le
Ministère n’assure toutefois pas que le matériel fonctionnera à la satisfaction de l’utilisateur.


Avant d’installer ce matériel, l’utilisateur doit s’assurer qu’il est permis de le raccorder aux installations de l’enterpris
e locale de télécommunication. Le matériel doit
également être ins
tallé en suivant une méthode acceptée da raccordement. L’abonné ne doit pas oublier qu’il est possible que la conformité aux conditions
énoncées ci
-dessus n’empêche pas la dégradation du service dans certaines situations.


Les réparations de matériel nomol
ogué doivent être coordonnées par un représentant désigné par le fournisseur. L’entreprise de télécommunications peut
demander à l’utilisateur da débrancher un appareil à la suite de réparations ou de modifications effectuées par l’utilisateur
ou à cause de mauvais fonctionnement.


Pour sa propre protection, l’utilisateur doit s’assurer que tous les fils de mise à la terre de la source d’energie électrique, de lignes téléphoniques et des canalisations
d’eau métalliques, s’il y en a, sont raccordés ensemble.
Cette précaution est particulièrement importante dans les régions rurales.


Avertissement :
L’utilisateur ne doit pas tenter de faire ces raccordements lui
-même; il doit avoir racours à un service d’inspection des installations électriques, ou à
un électr
icien, selon le cas.


AVIS : L’indice d’équivalence de la sonnerie
(IES) assigné à chaque dispositif terminal indique le nombre maximal de terminaux qui peuvent être raccordés à une
interface. La terminaison d’une interface téléphonique peut consister en une combinaison de quelques dispositifs, à la seule condition que la somme d’indices
d’équivalence de la sonnerie de tous les dispositifs n’excède pas 5.

Limitations Statement
WARNING

THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS ALARM SYSTEM

While this System is an advanced design security system, it does not offer guaranteed protection against burglary, fire or other
emergency. 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 (e.g., passive infrared detectors), smoke detectors, and many other sensing devices will not work without
power. Battery
-operated devices will not work without batteries, with dead batteries, or if the batteries are not put in properly.
Devices powered solely by AC will not work if their AC power supply is cut off for any reason, however briefly.

Signals sent by wireless transmitters may be blocked or reflected by metal before they reach the alarm receiver. Even if the
signal path has been recently checked during a weekly test, blockage can occur if a metal object is m
oved into the path.


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


While smoke detectors have played a key role in reducing residential fire deaths in the United States, they may not activate or
provide early warning for a v
ariety 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
as follows. Smoke detectors may have been im
properly 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. Finally, smoke detectors have sensing limitations. No smoke detector can sense every ki
nd
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 on the nature of the fire and/or location of the smoke detectors, the
detector, even if it operates as anticipated, may not provide sufficient warning to allow all occupants to escape in time to prevent
injury or death.


Passive Infrared Motion Detectors can only detect intrusion within the designed ranges as diagrammed in their installation
manual. Passive Infrared Detectors do not provide volumetric area protection. They do create multiple beams of protection, and
intrusion can only be detected in unobstructed areas covered by those beams. They cannot detect motion or intrusion that takes
place behind walls, ceilings, floors, closed doors, glass partitions, glass doors, or windows. Mechanical tampering, masking,

painting or spraying of any material on the mirrors, w
indows or any part of the optical system can reduce their detection ability.
Passive Infrared Detectors sense changes in temperature; however, as the ambient temperature of the protected area
approaches the temperature range of 90° to 105°F (32° to 40°C), the detection performance can decrease.


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 are located 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 by noise 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.


Telephone lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a premises to a central monitoring station may be out of service or
temporarily out of service.
Telephone lines are also subject to compromise by sophisticated intruders.


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.


This equipment, like other electrical devices, is subject to component failure. Even though this equipment is designed to las
t as
long as 10 years, the electronic components could fail at any t
ime.

The most common cause of an alarm system not functioning when an intrusion or fire occurs is inadequate maintenance. This alarm
system should be tested weekly to make sure all sensors and transmitters are working properly. The security keypad (and rem
ote
keypad) should be tested as well.

Wireless transmitters (used in some systems) are designed to provide long battery life under normal operating conditions.
Longevity of batteries may be as much as 4 to 7 years, depending on the environment, usage, and the specific wireless device
being used. External factors such as humidity, high or low temperatures, as well as large swings in temperature, may all reduce the
actual battery life in a given installation. This wireless system, however, can identify a true
low
-battery situation, thus allowing time
to arrange a change of battery to maintain protection for that given point within the system.

Installing an alarm system may make the owner eligible for a lower insurance rate, but an alarm system is not a substit
ute for
insurance. Homeowners, property owners and renters should continue to act prudently in protecting themselves and continue to
insure their lives and property.

We continue to develop new and improved protection devices. Users of alarm systems owe it to themselves and their loved ones to
learn about these developments.
