Congratulations on your ownership of a Honeywell Security System. This system provides:
• Three forms of detection: burglary, fire and emergency (see your installer for which forms of detection are installed)
• At least one keypad which provides control of system and displays system status
• Various sensors for perimeter and interior burglary detection
• Optional smoke or combustion detectors designed to provide early warning in case of fire.
Your system may also be programmed to automatically send alarm and status messages to a Central Monitoring Station.
Syst em Basi c s
The following is a list of some of the most common features and
functions of your system:
• Several modes of burglary detection: Stay, Away, Instant.
• Bypass feature lets you bypass selected zones while leaving the
rest of the system armed.
• Chime mode alerts you to the opening of protected doors and
windows while the system is disarmed.
• Fire and carbon monoxide detection are always active (if
installed) and an alarm sounds if a fire or carbon monoxide
condition is detected.
• Panic keys (if programmed) let you manually initiate fire, police
and medical alarms using the keypad.
• 4-digit security codes are used in conjunction with keypad
commands to perform system functions.
• Each user (up to 32) can be assigned a different security code.
• The system sensing devices have been assigned to various
“zones,” which are specific areas of detection (e.g., front door,
kitchen window, etc.).
• Zone numbers (points of detection) are displayed at the keypad
when an alarm or trouble condition occurs.
• Message Center allows recording and play-back of brief voice
• Speaker Phone allows the control to be used for hands free
telephone conversation. See the full User Guide for details.
• Two-way Voice allows the Central Station to listen, talk or
conduct a two-way conversation with in individuals at the
premises. See the full User Guide for details.
• Follow me reminder announcements allow the panel to dial a
number and deliver system status messages. See the full User
Guide for details.
• A Scheduling feature can be programmed to automatically
perform certain functions (e.g., arm the system) at a
predetermined time each day. See the full User Guide for details.
Ent r y/Ex i t Del ays
• Entry Delays give you time to disarm the system when you
enter through the designated entrance door.
• You must disarm the system before the entry delay period ends,
or an alarm will occur (keypad beeps during the entry delay
period, reminding you to disarm the system).
• Exit delay gives you time after arming the system to leave
through the designated exit door(s) without setting off an alarm.
If programmed, a slow beeping will sound during the exit delay
period until the last 10 seconds, which then changes to fast
beeping (alerting you to the end of exit delay). If you cannot
leave within this delay time period, you should stop, disarm the
system, and start over to avoid a false alarm.
• See your installer for your delay times. See the full User Guide
for details on Exit Error alarms.
