How do I change entry and exit delays?

Any doors that you regularly enter/exit through you will want to make a delay zone. This will give you time to exit your premises before the system arms and will also give you an entry delay when you enter so that you can disarm the system. You will generally want to make your delay times long enough to allow you plenty of time to exit or disarm the system, but not so long that it gives a burglar time to disable the alarm panel. To customize these delays follow these steps:

  1. You will enter into programming by pressing *8 and then enter the Installer Code which is 5555 by default.
  2. Enter programming section 005.
  3. Next enter 01.
  4. The first delay that you’ll enter is for entry delay 1. You’ll enter the duration in seconds using 3 digits using values from 030 to 255.
  5. Do the same thing for entry delay 2.
  6. And again for the exit delay. Use values 045 to 255 for the exit delay.
  7. Press # a few times to exit programming. - Back To Top

 

 

 

How do I change the installer and master codes?

To change the installer code:

  1. Enter programming. *8-Installer code
  2. Go to section 006.
  3. Enter a new 4 digit installer code. DO NOT LOSE OR FORGET THIS NUMBER! IT IS THE ONLY WAY INTO PROGRAMMING!
  4. Press # to exit programming.

To change the master code:

  1. Use *8-installer code to go into programming.
  2. Enter 007.
  3. Now enter a new 4 digit master code.
  4. Press # to exit. - Back To Top

 

 

 

How do I add wireless zones?

  1. Enter programming. Press *8 followed by your installer code. Default code is 5555.
  2. Now go to section 898. This is the Wireless Enrollment Mode.
  3. You will need to activate the device that you are enrolling. This can be done in different ways depending on the kind of device. You’ll want to trip or tamper the device so that it broadcasts its serial number to the panel.
  4. The keypad should beep and display the ESN of the device that you’re enrolling. Confirm that it is correct and then press *. If it is not correct then press # and try again. Most likely another unenrolled device was picked up instead.
  5. The keypad will now ask for the zone number. Enter the 2 digit zone number and press *.
  6. Next you’ll need to enter the 2 digit zone type. The zone type definitions can be found in the manual. Press * to finish enrolling the device.
  7. You can repeat steps 3-6 as needed. When finished press # twice to exit programming. - Back To Top
