3. Before you start don’t forget to call our monitoring station (1-855-488-3777) to put your system on test. Quick Tip – Before calling the monitoring station please have ready your verbal passcode & your account number as well. If you are unsure of your account number call our office 403-343-1122.

4. Arm your system in away mode and once the countdown stops; start opening windows and doors, walk in front of the motion detectors if you have glass breaks clap your hand close to it and make it as loud as you can.

5. Once you have completed all your zones turn off your alarm system and call back the monitoring station to see if they received your signals.

Should the system fail to function properly, call us 1-403-343-1122 immediately for service.

To turn this feature ON and OFF press [*] [4].

Use the zone bypassing feature when you need access to a protected area while the system is armed,or when a zone is temporarily out of service, but you need to arm the system. Bypassed zones will not be able to sound an alarm. Bypassing zones reduces the level of security. If you are bypassing a zone because it is not working, call a service technician immediately so that the problem can be resolved and your system returned to proper working order. Ensure that no zones are unintentionally bypassed when arming your system. Zones cannot be bypassed once the system is armed. Bypassed zones are automatically cancelled each time the system is disarmed and must be bypassed again, if required, before the next arming.

1. Enter [✱] [1]. You may be required to enter your access code.

2. A menu will outline the various bypassing options. Use the arrow (< >) keys to scroll through the options. When you find the correct option, press the [✱] key to select it, or press the corresponding number in parentheses. The bypassing options are as follows:

[0] Bypass Open Zones- This section will only display the zones which are currently open or bypassed. Use the arrow (< >) keys to scroll through these zones. Zones that are open will be indicated by an exclamation (!) mark in the lower right-hand side of the keypad display. To select a zone to be bypassed, press the [✱] key. A “✱” will appear next to the zone label to indicate that the zone has been bypassed. When you are done selecting zones, press [#] to exit.

[1] Bypass Zones – This selection takes you immediately to bypassing zones. Use the arrow (< >) keys to find the zone to be bypassed and press the [✱] key to select it. A “✱” will appear next to the zone label to indicate that the zone has been bypassed. When you are done selecting zones, press [#] to exit.

[2] Clear Bypasses – This selection will allow you to turn bypassing off for all of the zones in your partition.

[3] Recall Bypasses – This selection will automatically bypass the same group of zones which were bypassed the last time the partition was armed.

[4] Group Bypassing – This selection will only appear if your system is setup for group bypassing. Once in this menu, you can either scroll (< >) or press the number key of the corresponding group you wish to bypass.

[5] Previous Menu – This selection will return the display to “Enter Code to Arm System.” From here, you will be able to arm the system.

Press *2 this will silence the beeping for 4-6 hours.

Away Arming

Arming the system in the Away mode will have all interior zones and perimeter zones active. If motion is detected in the interior zones, or if one of the perimeter zones is violated, the alarm sequence will begin. To arm in the Away mode

1. Prepare the partition to be armed by closing all protected doors and windows. Also, stop any movement in areas covered by motion detectors.

2. If the time and date appear on the LCD keypad display, press the [#] key. The “Enter Code to Arm System” message should appear. If the display reads “Secure System Before Arming,” ensure that all

doors and windows have been shut and that all motion has ceased.

3. When you see the “Enter Code to Arm System” message, enter your 4- or 6-digit access code & select the partition(s) if applicable to be armed. If the access code was entered incorrectly, the keypad will beep steadily for two seconds.

Then exit the premises through a designated exit/entry door. The system will recognize that you have left the premises. Once the exit delay expires, the system will be armed in the Away mode.

Stay Arming

This feature, if enabled, will allow you to arm the perimeter zones while leaving some interior zones inactive so that you can remain on the premises while the system is armed.

To arm in Stay mode

1. Prepare the partition to be armed by closing all protected doors and windows.

2. If the time and date appear on the LCD keypad display, press the [#] key. The “Enter Code to Arm System” message should appear. If the display reads “Secure System Before Arming,” ensure that all doors and windows have been shut.

3. When you see the “Enter Code to Arm System” message, enter your 4- or 6-digit access code. If the access code was entered incorrectly, the keypad will beep steadily for two seconds.

When you enter your access code to arm the system and do not exit the premises through a designated exit/entry door, the system will arm in the Stay mode, automatically bypassing the interior zones.

The interior zones can be reactivated at any time by entering [✱] [1] at any keypad. If you reactivate the interior zones, be sure that you do not enter areas not protected by motion detectors. To access areas protected by motion sensors, you must enter your security code to disarm the system.

Arming Without Entry Delay

The entry delay is the period during which someone may enter an armed area without causing an alarm, providing time to get to a keypad to disarm the system. If you wish to arm your system without the entry delay, enter [✱] [9] then your access code. The Armed light will flash as a reminder that the system is armed and has no entry delay. The system will bypass the interior zones. An entry through any exit/entry door will create an instant alarm.

Quick Arm

When the Quick Arm feature is enabled, you can arm the system by pressing [✱] [0], instead of your access code. Please note that pressing [✱] [0] will only allow you to arm the system; to disarm, you must enter a valid access code. Your system administrator will inform you if the Quick Arm feature has been enabled on your system.

Disarming Your System

1. Enter the premises through a designated exit/entry door. Entering the premises through any door not designated as a point of entry will cause an immediate alarm. As soon as the exit/entry door is opened, the keypad sounder will beep, and the entry delay will begin. The entry delay provides up to 255 seconds to disarm the system.

2. Go to the keypad and enter your access code. If you make an error when entering the code, press the [#] key and enter the code again. The Armed light will turn off and the keypad buzzer will stop. A valid access code must be entered before the entry delay time expires.

Call Monitoring Station 1-855-488-3777 to advise them to ignore any signals from this device. Remove the carbon monoxide detector from the wall & cut the red wire. This will take all power away from the device. This is not recommended unless you will be replacing the device. Once the carbon monoxide detector is disabled this zone may show open on your security system – if this occurs follow the instructions on bypassing a zone or contact our office to disable the zone from your security system.
