How do I turn on/off the door chime?

To Enable/Disable Door Chime Press and hold the [CHIME] button. When the command is entered, the keypad will provide an audible indication:

  • Chime ON=3 rapid beeps
  • Chime OFF=1 long tone
  • How do I program the Time and Date?

    To Program the Time & Date you need to follow these steps:

  • Step 1 - Enter [*][6]+[Master Code]
  • Step 2 - Enter [01]
  • Step 3 - Enter Time [HH:MM] in 24 Hour Format
  • Step 4 - Enter Date [MM:DD:YY]
  • Step 5 - Enter [#]

  • When you are done, you should wait about 15 seconds and the time should appear on the keypad.

    There is an orange triangle with an exclamation mark lit up on my keypad. Why is it there, and what do I do?

    This symbol means that there is some kind of trouble on your system. Press [*] then [2] and refer to the chart on page 11 in the User Manual to determine what the problem is.

    I followed the instructions to find out what was causing the Trouble on my system. The system shows I have a low battery, what do I do?

    Around every 5 years a panel needs a new battery, just like a car. You can come by our office and purchase a battery for under $30, or you can usually find them at local hardware stores for a little higher price.

    I followed the instructions to find out what was causing the Trouble on my system. The system shows a Failure to Communicate Error. What is this, and how do I fix it?

    A "Failure to Communicate" error occurs when the communication path fails. This could be caused by your phones being out, cell towers being worked on, or an equipment failure. If your monitoring is run through your landline phones, you should check if your phone's handset has a dial tone.

    If you want to manually test your system's communications you can do so following these steps:

  • Step 1 - Enter [*][6]+[Master Code]
  • Step 2 - Enter [04]
  • Your horns will sound for 3 seconds and the keypad will flash. The alarm system will also attempt to send a Manual Test signal tp the Monitoring Station. If this is successful, the yellow triangle should clear, and you may hear 6 quick beeps around 30 second after the horns sound.
