This video is about Changing and Accessing the Installer Code Programming Section


Hi DIYers, Sterling from Alarm Grid here. Today we're going to show you how to change and access the Installer Code Programming section. We have another video that describes the master code. Many people don't realize there are two separate codes for the panel. One is the master code. That allows you to arm and disarm and gets you into the User Code screen.

The code that we're going to talk about right now is the installer, or program, code. By default, it's 4-1-1-2. The way to access our Programming section is hit, from the Home screen, More > Tools. We enter our code. We still have it set to the default, 4-1-1-2. We are now into our Installer Code Programming section. This where you would program your zones and system settings. You can see on here, you can do some testing, view the Event Log, set up scheduling. This is the next-level features for the programming stuff, things you would want to do during system setup or as you add devices. To get into Programming, you hit Program. You can see there are many options here. We'll go through all of the options in different videos. Right now, we're just going to show you the installer code. Go here, and all you do is type a new code. Right now it's 4-1-1-2. If we wanted to set it to something else, 4-5-6-7 > Done. It's already saved.

You're going to get this question every time you back out of Installer Code Programming. It asks if you want to allow the installer to re-enter Programming. You always want to say Yes here. We'll show you in another video what happens if you say No. If you say Yes and back out, now if we try to go back in, 4-1-1-2 does not work anymore. It kicks you back to the Home screen, but if we put our 4-5-6-7 code, we're back in. That is how to change and access the Installer Code Programming section.
