hey di wires I'm George from alarm grid today we're gonna be going over how you should program your report codes if you're doing a self-monitoring plan with alarmgrid so first of all let's get into what a self-monitoring plan is it is literally in the name it's a self monitoring plan which means any signals from the alarm system are not being transmitted to a dispatch or central station in other words right so the self monitoring plan only sends the signals to the total connect or interactive platform that you have whether that's Total Connect 2.0 or alarm com the app then sends you emails or text message notifications when an alarm goes off and again this is only if you're being self monitored now you don't need to have the reporting codes enabled on your alarm system whether you have a Vista or a wireless Honeywell 2gig kosis whatever kind of system it is you don't need to have the reporting codes enabled on this because if you do then that means it's trying to signal out to a Central Station when on a self-monitoring plan it is not now I'm more often than not alarm grid technicians will actually take care of that programming for you so that way you don't have to do it but if you want to get a jump start and do it on your own I'm gonna show you guys a quick little video on how to do that now the method differs between if you're using a wired Vista system or a Honeywell Lynx or lyric system it also differs if you're using an alarm comm system which we can actually turn that off on our own so you don't actually have to do that for if you're using closest to Gig DSC inter logics anything like that alright so first thing we're gonna go ahead and start off with is going to be our Vista system so if you have a Vista system the first thing you want to do is go ahead and head over to your keypad because we're going to need to enter into programming now when you go into programming there's two things that are there's actually one main thing that I want you to pay attention for so first thing you got to do is go to your system you're gonna need to know your installer code now a lot of people get the installer code and the master code confused the master code is what you use to arm and disarm the system whenever you leave or whenever you go to sleep at night the installer code is what you use to go into programming there are two complete different codes so make sure you have the installer code the default installer code for a Vista system or a Honeywell system is four one one two so to go into programming on a Honeywell Vista system I'm gonna enter in my installer code and then 800 so it's gonna be four one one two eight zero zero now this is what I want you guys to pay attention to if you enter in your correct installer code and 800 right after you should see installer code 20 if you only now if you see installer code 20 on the keypad that is perfect but if you if your keypad only shows the number 20 on the screen that means you have a fixed English keypad and if you go any deeper into programming thus you're basically going to be working blind so if you get to this point where you only see a 20 on the screen hit star 99 it's a exit out of programming we're gonna stop there if you have a 20 if you only have a 20 on the screen and you're gonna have to buy an alphanumeric keypad and then we'll come back to doing these steps alright so make sure your keypad says installer code 20 if your keypad says installer code 20 you're okay to proceed and we'll then move on so the first thing we're gonna go ahead and do is get into the reporting codes for the individual zones themselves so what I'm gonna go ahead and do I'm gonna go ahead and go into star 56 that's gonna give me that's gonna bring me into deep level zone programming star 5 6 it's gonna ask you if you want to set to confirm just hit zero and now it's gonna enter it's going to go to our enter Zone number screen so you only need to disable the report codes for the zones that are programmed so if you only have zones 1 2 3 if you only have one zone on your system for instance I'm only gonna have zone 1 I'm gonna show you guys how to disable it you can enter in the zone number there so if it's like zone 3 you can entering 0-3 if it's zone 1 I'm gonna go back to 0 1 whatever zone you want this that's the number of the zone the zone number is gonna be right there in the bottom right corner so once you hit the zone you want you're gonna hit start to proceed it's gonna bring you to a zone summary screen now if you go to a zone and you see the zone type is set to 0 0 you do not need to disable the report code for that because if it's 0 0 that means that zone is disabled so if you see a 0 0 under ZT zone type you do not need to change the report code for that right now my zone number is set to 1 my zone type is set to 0 and I actually already have my reporting code set to 0 0 but here's what I'm gonna show you guys what to do now so once you after you get to your zone summary screen you're just gonna hit star until you get to the report cold screen the report cold screen is going to look like this so I'm gonna hit start to proceed I'm gonna hit start to proceed star again and now this is my report cold screen it has my zone number in my top left has report code right after it and then the second line is where you need to switch everything to zero zero so if you see something different here let's say sometimes you'll see a 1 0 1 0 if this is what you see on your on your zone make sure you switch this out and you enter 0 0 0 0 hmm and after you confirm that both the first and the second have been set to 0 0 0 0 you just hit start to proceed and just hit start until you get back to the zone number screen you don't need to program the Alpha so I'm gonna hit 0 for that and then now we're into enter zone number again alright once you've completed this for every zone that you have just hit 0 0 to quit that's going to take you out of the deep level zone programming so I'm gonna hit 0 0 and it's gonna take me back to my enter star or field number so it's going to take me back to my more programming screen now that we're back at our main programming screen we now have to disable some of the other other reporting codes on some of the other features on the system that's gonna be fields 59 through 76 all right so 59 through 76 really all you're gonna do is hit star 59 that's gonna take you to the field and after that you're basically just gonna keep hitting zero until you hear three beeps to confirm on everything and I'm gonna show you guys in a second what that looks like but once you get to 77 which is a Daylight Time savings you're just gonna stop there and we're gonna exit from programming so here's what it looks like right again I'm gonna start a star 59 so scar five nine and it's gonna say exit error report it has a number there I'm just gonna hit zero it gives me the three beep confirmation and it automatically jumps to the next to the next one again I'm just gonna hit zero and if you don't hear the three beeps hit zero again those three beeps are confirmation that you're changing the setting in that field now bypass report code sorry that number in the bottom right is actually showing you the field numbers so we did 59 we did 60 and now we're at 61 so we hit zero zero we now jump to 62 again you can just keep keep hitting zero zero it'll jump to the next one and we're gonna do this all the way until we get to 77 and then stop so again zero zero zero zero some of them may require more than one or two zero so just keep hitting zero until you hear the three beep confirmation okay so again now we're in 66 so we have about 10 more to do as you see this one took a lot more zeros we're now at 72 and again all I'm doing is I'm just pressing down the zero until I hear the three beeps now we're at 76 this is our last one it jumps over to 77 and it brings us to our daylight start our daylight and savings time right so right there that's where we stopped that's where we're done with the reporting codes on the Vista system once you get to that field just hit star 99 to exit programming make sure you only do star 99 if you do anything else you may lock yourself out of programming so it's star 99 to exit programming and you should be fine so star 9 9 and we're back at the main screen we're out of programming and that is how to disable the report calls on a Vista system now we're gonna jump over to our lyric and lynx systems if you have a links or lyric system the process is gonna be a little bit easier because we don't actually have to go through the actual zone fields and you know you might not need the manual all this and it's just everything is on a on a graphic user interface screen so it's a lot easier to deal with so the first thing we have to do is go into programming same way we did on our Honeywell sistar Honeywell Vista series system we got to do the same thing on the lyric system again default installer code for these systems is for one one two your code may have been changed by your or your company during the installation so make sure you guys are using the correct code again that there's a big difference between a master code and an installer code alright so on the lyric system to get to programming we're gonna hit security we're gonna go to tools and this is where you enter in the installer code - 4 1 1 2 if you are not taken to this screen then you are not using the correct installer code if you're taking to a user's advanced setup in different things like that you're probably using your master code so make sure you use the installer code that way you can get into programming once I'm on this screen I'm just gonna go into programming and it's a programming and the first thing we're gonna do same thing we did on the Vista system is disable the reporting codes for the actual zones themself so I'm gonna go over to zones and let's say I'm gonna go to my zone 3 and I'm gonna hit edit right so you highlight the zone you hit the edit button so right now you see it says alarm report in the bottom left you wanna sorry about that just a couple of faults on the Vista system so what you're going to want to do on the lyric system is if you see the alarm report it's set to yes you're gonna want to hit that option and set it to no and this is going to be for every zone if you're being self monitored again this is for a self monitoring plan only do not do this if you're being monitored by a Central Station because if you turn off the reporting that means if an alarm goes off on that door it will not get sent to the Central Station so this is only for self monitoring people and yeah so alarm report you set that to note and then obviously always hit save before you do anything and again you can do this for all of your zones you go to backdoor edit alarm report toggle it to no hit save and you do that for every single zone alright once you've gotten through all your zones depending on how many you have just hit the back arrow key one time and now we have to disable some of the panel features so we go to reporter we're gonna go to relieve its report selection yes so it's the report selection and all of these that show enabled we're just going to toggle them to disabled if you literally tap them they will go from enabled to disabled now there may be some grade ones that you cannot change if that is the case don't worry about it you can leave them as is but you want to try to set every single one that you can to disabled so there's only a couple of them that I couldn't change I'm gonna hit the down arrow key there is a second page so make sure you disable those as well again some of them are grayed out so I'm just gonna disable the ones that are not grayed out and there we go and then once you're done with everything you hit save alright so as you saw the lyric system same concept on link system it's they both have the same fields so just do the same stuff and you saw how much easier it was on the touchscreen systems now on the lyric system we're gonna hit the back arrow key all the way out if you're doing this on a lynx system on an l5210 l7000 Dell 5100 L 5200 make sure that when you guys are backing out of programming there's gonna be a prompt that says do you want to do you want to allow the Installer to re-enter programming you always always always want to say yes to that if you say no getting back into programming is gonna be a headache for you so always say yes on that prompt now after that you've disabled the reporting codes on the link system you if you have a Vista system showed you how to do that as well and that was just a quick video on how to show you guys how to program report codes for a self monitored plan now again self monitored plans means that there is no Central Station you're only getting texts and messages from the app and then it's up to you to contact the authorities right those are the self monitored plans if you guys have any questions at all about the plans are about their reporting and programming's feel free to email us at
