TESTING THE SYSTEM

Using the Test mode allows each detection
point to be checked for proper
operation.
Testing should be conducted weekly to ensure proper
operation
.


The keypad sounds a single beep about every 30 seconds as a
reminder that the system is in the Test mode.


Alarm messages are not sent to your Central Station while Test mode is
on.

If a problem is experienced with any detection
point (no confirming
sounds, no display), call for service immediately.

Quick Guide
to User Functions


For full details of all user functions, please see the system’s User Guide. T
he
full version User Guide is also available from your
installer upon request.


Congratulations on your ownership of a Honeywell
Home
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.


SYSTEM BASICS

The following is a list of some of the most common features and
functions of your system:


Several modes of burglary detection: Stay
, Night
-Stay, Away, Instant,
Max
imum
.

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)
; an
alarm sounds if a fire or carbon monoxide condition is detected.


Panic keys (if programmed) let you manually initiate fire and personal
alarms using the keypad.

4-digit security codes are
used in conjunction with keypad commands

to perform system functions
.

Each user can be assigned a different security code, each with
different authority levels
.

The system sens
ors
have been assigned to various “zones,” which are
specific areas of detection
(e.g., fro
nt door, kitchen window, etc.).


Zone numbers (points of detection) are displayed at the keypad when
an alarm or trouble condition occurs.


Partitions provide two independent areas of detec
tion
plus an optional
common area, with each partition containing a group of zones that can
be armed and disarmed without affecting other zones or users.


Function keys may have been programmed to perform various
functions. Ask your installer if these keys are active.


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.


ENTRY/EXIT DELAYS



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 sys
tem).



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, whic
h 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.

NOTES on BURGLARY
DETECTION



The system must be armed before the burglary detection
can sense
intrusions.


To arm your system, enter your security code followed by the
desired arming key.


To disarm the system, enter your security code then press the OFF

key.


When an alarm
occurs, the keypad sounds
and displays the
zone(s) causing the alarm. The external sounder may also sound.


If your system is connected to a Central Monitoring Station, an
alarm message is also sent (delayed 30 seconds by default to
reduce false alarms).


To stop the alarm sounding, simply disarm the system.



Memory of Alarm:
When an alarm condition occurs, the keypad
displays
the number(s) of the zone(s) that caused the problem, and
displays the type of alarm. Clear the Memory of Alarm display by
entering another “off” sequence.


IMPORTANT:
If you return to the premises and the
main burglary sounder is on, or the keypad beeps
rapidly upon entering the premises, it indicates that an
alarm has oc
curred during your absence and an
intruder may still be on the premises. LEAVE
IMMEDIATELY and CONTACT THE POLICE from a
nearby safe location.


NOTES on FIRE
and CO
DETECTION


Your fir
e alarm
system (if installed) is on 24 hours a day, for
continuous
detection. In the event of an emergency, the smoke and
heat detectors
sound their alarms, triggering a loud, interrupted
pulsed sound
from the Keypad(s) and any external sounders.

You can silence the alarm at any time by pressing the OFF key (the
security code is not needed to silence fire alarms).


Carbon monoxide (CO)
detect
ors, if installed, provide
continuous
detection. If a high level of carbon monoxide is detected, an
interrupted pulsed alarm sound
occurs at the keypads and the
detector(s). Immediately move to a spot where fresh air is available,
preferably outdoors. From a safe area, call your security service
provider for further instructions. To silence the keypad sounding,
press the OFF key. To silence the detector, see its instructions.





CHECKING
OPEN
ZONES

Ch
ecking Zones: Before arming your system, all protected doors, windows and other detection
zones must be closed or bypassed; otherwise the keypad displays

SECURITY CODES

Your installer assigned a master code that is used to perform al
l system functions.

In addition, other security codes can be assigned for use by other users.


Only the System Master and Partition Master can assign security codes to users.


Users are identified by 2-
digit user numbers.


Only the System Master can change user partitions.


In addition to a security code, each user is assigned an authority level and various system
attributes.
See the full User Guide for definitions of each Authority Level.


Security codes can be used interchangeably within a partition
when performing system functions
(a system armed with one security code can be disarmed by a different security code), with the
exception of the Guest and Arm Only codes
.

Security code programming involves these steps:

1. Choose a user number from the set of users assigned to the partition in which the user will be
operating, and assign a 4-
digit security code.

2. Assign an authority level to that user.

3. Assign other attributes as necessary.


Assigning Security Codes and Us
er Attributes

The following lists the various command strings for adding security codes and attributes.

NOTE:
Partition Master codes apply only to those user numbers previously assigned (by the system
master/installer) to the partition master’s partition.
