SECURITY CODES

1. Enter your Master code and press the CODE key.

2. Enter single-digit user number ('2', '3', '4', '5', '6' or '7') for which a code is to be assigned,  changed, or deleted.

3.If  assigning or changing a user's code, enter the desired 4-digit code

for use by that user number. The keypad will beep once. If deleting a user's code,

perform steps 1 & 2 and stop. In a few

moments the keypad will beep once, indicating that the existing code

has been deleted.

To assign your

Duress

code, do the following:

Enter your [Master code] + [8] + [8] + [desired 4-digit code]. The

keypad will beep once.

The

Master

code can be changed by the main user of the system. To

change it, do the following:

Enter your [Master code] + [8] + [1] + [new Master code] + [new Master

code] again. The keypad will beep once.

Important:

Temporary users should not be shown how to use any

system function they do not need to know (e.g., bypassing protection

zones).

SECURITY CODES

General

At the time of installation, your installer programmed a personal four-digit Master code,

known only to you and yours. This code is used to perform most system functions,

including arming and disarming of the system. As an additional safety feature, temporary

User Codes can be assigned for use by those not having a need to know the Master code.

Note that the Master code remains in effect even when other user codes are assigned.

IMPORTANT! When performing any of the procedures that follow, do not

allow more than 2 seconds to elapse between steps, otherwise the entry

will be aborted, and the procedure must be repeated from its beginning.

To Assign, Change, or Delete User Codes It is recommended that obvious codes such as

1-1-1-1 or 1-2-3-4 not be assigned. Temporary users should not be shown how to use

any system function that they do not need to know (e.g., how to bypass pro-tection zones).

The Master security code can be used to assign up to 4 secondary User codes. It can also

be used to change any User code or to remove (delete) any secondary User code from

the system.

To Assign or Change a User Code:

1. Enter your Master code and press the CODE[8] key.

2. Enter the single-digit User Number for whom a code is to be assigned or changed

(User Nos. 3 to 6 may be assigned.)

3. Enter the desired 4-digit code for use by that User Number. The keypad will beep

once when a User code has been successfully entered.

To Delete a User Code:

Perform steps 1 and 2 above and then stop. In a few moments, the keypad will beep

once, indicating that the existing code has been deleted.

Duress Code

This feature is intended for use when you are forced to disarm or arm the system under

threat. When used, the system will act normally, but can silently notify the central station of

your situation, if that service has been provided.

The Duress code may be any 4-digit code assigned to User Number 8.

SECURITY CODES

Duress Code

(Continued)

To program a Duress code:

Enter your Master Code + 8 + 8 + [desired 4-digit duress code].

The keypad will beep once.

Note:

The Duress code must differ from the Master Code or any other User’s Code.

To change the Duress code:

Enter Master Code + 8 + 8 + [new 4-digit duress code].

To delete the Duress code:

Enter your Master Code + 8 + 8, and then stop. When the keypad beeps once it signifies

that the code has been deleted.

To Change Your Master

Code

1. Enter your Master code and press the CODE [8] key.

2. Enter “2”.

3. Enter your new Master code.

4. Enter your new Master code again. The keypad will beep 3 times, indicating

acceptance.

Quick Arming

Ask your installer if "Quick

Arming" is active for your

system; if so, check here:

If your system supports "Quick Arming", the "#" key can be pressed in place of the

security code when arming the system. The security code is

always

required, however,

when disarming the system.

Phone Module

Ask your installer if your

system includes a phone

module; if so, check here:

If your system includes a phone module, your installer will have programmed a 2-digit

phone access code for your system. Be sure to obtain this phone code from your installer.

Complete information regarding the use of this phone access feature is provided in a

separate manual entitled PHONE ACCESS USER'S GUIDE, which accompanies the

phone module.

SECURITY CODES

How to Assign Security Security Codes and Attributes

The following lists the command strings for adding user codes and attributes.

Refer to the User Setup chart at the back of this manual for factory

assignments of user attributes and to keep a record of user programming.

Change System

System Master code + [8] + 02 + new Master code + new code again

Master Code

The System Master code can be changed only by using the current

System Master code or by the Installer using the Installer code.

Add a User:

System Master code + [8] + user no.+ new user’s security code

User 01 = installer User 03-17 = standard users

User 02 = master (factory set master code is 1234)

The Keypad beeps once to confirm that new user was added.

Delete a User:

System Master code + [8] + [user no.] + [#] [0]

The security code and all attributes set for this user number,

including any associated RF keys, are erased from the system.

Security Codes and Authority Levels (cont’d)

To Add a User

IMPORTANT:

Temporary users should not be shown how to use any system

function they do not need to know (e.g. bypassing protection zones).

CODE

1. Enter Master or Manager code and press the 8

key.

2. Enter the new user's 3-digit User Number (002-250).

3. Enter 4-digit security code for that user. The following prompts will

appear.

ADD NEW USER?

0 = NO , 1 = YES

Enter 1 to add a new user code. Entering 0 will

change the existing user's code to the code entered

in step 3. See Changing A User's Code section.

USER NUMBER = 003

ENTER AUTH. LEVEL

Enter the authority level, 1-6, for this user within

this partition.

1=master 2=manager 3=operator A

4=operator B 5=operator C 6=duress code

GROUP BYPASSING?

0 = NO , 1 = YES

Enter 1 (YES) to allow this user to perform group

bypasses. Enter 0 (NO) this user will not be able to

perform group bypasses.

ACCESS GROUP?

ENTER 0-8

If access schedules have been programmed, this

prompt appears. Enter the user's access group

number (1-8) if this user should have limited

access to the system. Enter 0 if no access group

should be assigned.

RF BUTTON ?

0 = NO , 1 = YES

This prompt will appear if a 5800 series button

transmitter has been supplied and has not yet been

assigned to a user. Press 1 if a button transmitter

will be assigned to this user. Otherwise press 0.

ENTER BUTTON ZN #

(001-250)

If assigning a button transmitter, this prompt will

appear. Enter the button's zone number (see your

installer for zone number).

Security Codes and Authority Levels (cont’d)

MULTI-ACCESS ?

0 = NO , 1 = YES

If you as a user have access to other partitions, the

keypad will prompt for ability of this new user to

access (GOTO) those partitions. Press 0 (NO) or 1

(YES). If no, the system activates this user code and

exits “Add a User” mode. If yes, the keypad prompts

for the Global Arm option for this user.

GLOBAL ARM ?

0 = NO , 1 = YES

Press 1 (YES) if this user will be allowed to try to

arm more than one partition at the same time.

Press 0 if this user will arm only his assigned

partition.

PART.2 - SHOP?

0 = NO , 1 = YES

The keypad now prompts for the user’s access to the

next partition (see GOTO command). Again press 0

or 1. If yes, the system will automatically assign a

user number for use in that partition and will

prompt for authority level and global arm options

for this user within the partition (see previous

steps).

PART. 1 A0* WHSE

USER 003 AUTH=3G.

When all partitions have been displayed, the

keypad will scroll through the partition(s) to which

access has been assigned, and will display the user

number, authority level and global arm option for

each. The “G” after the authority level indicates

that the global arm feature is active for this user in

the displayed partition. The "*" indicates the

partition from which this user can be changed or

deleted. The "." at the end of the second line

indicates that this user sends open/close reports.

Open/close reporting is automatically active for any

users added by you, if you have open/close reporting

active.
