How Do I Activate the Chime on a DSC Impassa?

You can activate the chime on a DSC Impassa by toggling the chime setting to On. To toggle the chime, either press and hold the "Chime" button on the keypad, or enter in the command [*] [4]. The system will make a particular sound depending on whether the chime has been set to On or Off.

The DSC Impassa System will only produce a chime when an entry/exit zone has been activated. The chime sound will only emit when the chime setting is set to On. There is no way to individually configure the chime settings for different entry/exit zones. Only entry/exit zones can produce a chime.

When the chime function is toggled to On, the system will produce three consecutive beeps. When the chime function is toggled to Off, the system will produce one long continuous tone. With the chime function set to On, the system will produce a chime whenever an entry/exit sensor is activated.

Complete the following steps to toggle the chime function on a DSC Impassa System:

1. Toggle the chime. Either press and hold the "Chime" button for two seconds or enter in the key command [*] [4]. This will toggle the system's chime function. Make sure that the system is disarmed when doing this.

2. Check the setting. If the system produces three consecutive beeps, then chime has been toggled to On. If the system produces one long continuous tone, then chime has been toggled to Off. Listen for the sound, and make sure that the chime has been set to the desired setting. If it hasn't, repeat Step 1 to toggle the chime On or Off.

3. Test the chime. Activate an entry/exit zone. If the chime function is set to On, a chime should be produced by the system. If it is set to Off, then the system will not produce a chime.
