1. Prior to testing, ensure your system is disarmed and Ready light is On.

2. If there are any open zones you must secure them before you start.

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.

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.

Bypassing Zones with a LCD5500/LCD5520 keypad
Start with disarming the system.
1. Press [*] to enter the function menu. The keypad will display “Press for < > Zone Bypass”.
2. Press [1] or [*], then your [access code] (if required). The keypad will display “Zone Search < > Zone Name”.
3. Enter the two-digit number of the zone(s) to be bypassed (01-64).
You can also use the [<] [>] keys to find the zone to be bypassed, and then press [*] to select the zone.
The keypad will display “Zone Search < > “Zone Name?”. “B” will appear on the display to show that the zone is bypassed. If a zone is open (e.g., door with door contact is open), the keypad will display
“Zone Search < > “Zone Name” O”. If you bypass the open zone, a “B” will replace the “O”.
4. To unbypass a zone, enter the two-digit number of the zone(s) to be bypassed (01-64). You can
also use the [<] [>] keys to find the zone, and then press [*] to select the zone. The “B” will dis-appear from the display to show that the zone is no longer bypassed.
5. To exit bypassing mode and return to the Ready state, press [#]

Bypassing Zones with a PC55XXZ or LCD5501Z keypad
1. Disarm the system.
2. Press [*] [1], then your [access code] (if required).
3. Enter the two-digit number of the zone(s) to be bypassed (01-64). The zone light will turn on to indicate that the zone is bypassed.
4. To unbypass a zone, enter the two-digit number of the zone (01-64). The zone light will turn off to indicate that the zone is not bypassed.
5. To exit bypassing mode and return to the Ready state, press [#]

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

Away Arming
When you arm your system using the Away arming method, both interior zones (e.g.,
motion detectors) and border zones (e.g., door and window contacts) will be active and will
cause an alarm to sound when opened.
1. Check that your system is ready to be armed (Ready light is ON).
2. Enter your [access code]. As you enter each digit, the keypad sounder beeps.
If you enter the access code incorrectly, the keypad sounder buzzes steadily for two seconds. Re-enter your access code correctly.
When you enter a valid access code:
• The keypad sounds fast beeps.
• The Armed light turns ON.
• keypad will display “Exit Delay in Progress”.
• The exit delay begins and the keypad beeps once every second until the end of the exit delay. The keypad beeps quickly for the last 10 seconds of the exit delay.
3. Exit the premises through the entry/exit door. Doing this tells the system that you are away, and the system arms all the interior zones. At the end of the exit delay, all keypad lights, except the Armed light, turn OFF. LCD5500Z/LCD5520Z keypads display “System Armed in Away Mode” and “Enter Code to Disarm System”. The system is now armed

You may also be able to quickly Away arm your system using the “Away” function button
on your keypad. If your installer has programmed this button, press and hold it for two seconds to arm in Away mode.

Stay Arming
Use the Stay arming method when you want to stay on the premises but prevent unauthorized entry from outside the premises. The system will arm only the border (e.g., door and window contacts) zones and will bypass the interior zones (e.g., motion detectors) so that you will be free to move around inside.
1. Check that your system is ready to be armed (Ready light is ON)
2. Enter your [access code]. As you enter each digit, the keypad sounder beeps.
If you entered the access code incorrectly, the keypad sounder buzzes steadily for two seconds. Re-enter your access code correctly.
When you enter a valid access code:
• The keypad sounds fast beeps.
• The Armed light turns ON.
• Keypad will display “Exit Delay in Progress”.
• The exit delay begins and the keypad beeps once every second until the end of the exit delay. The keypad beeps quickly for the last 10 seconds of the exit delay.
3. DO NOT exit the premises through the entry/exit door. This tells the system that you are
staying, and the system automatically bypasses the Stay/Away zones.
At the end of the exit delay, all keypad lights, except the Armed light, turn OFF.
The keypad will display “System Armed in Stay Mode” and “Enter Code
to Disarm System” or the Bypass indicator will be on. The system is now armed.

No Entry Arming
If you want to arm the system, and no one else will be entering, you can remove the entry
delay from zones that normally have one.
An entry through any zone will then create an instant alarm.
1. Check that your system is ready to be armed (Ready light is ON)
2. Press *9, then your [access code].
• The Armed light flashes as a reminder that the system is armed and has no entry delay.
• The keypad sounds fast beeps.
• Keypad will display “Exit Delay in Progress”.
3. The system is now armed in Stay mode.

Disarming
1. If you are outside, enter the premises through a designated entry/exit door. If you are
inside, go to step 2.
NOTE: Entering by any other door will immediately cause an alarm.
The keypad beeps to indicate that you must disarm the system. Your system should have a minimum
30 second entry delay for false alarm reduction purposes. Please consult your installer
for the programmed entry delay time on your system partition.
2. Go to the keypad and enter your [access code]. The correct access code must be entered before the entry delay period expires. If a valid access code is not entered during this time, the system will sound an alarm.

NOTE: If you entered the access code incorrectly, the keypad sounder buzzes steadily for two seconds. Re-enter your access code correctly. As soon as the correct code is entered, the Armed light turns OFF and the keypad stops
beeping.

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.

beside the code number (e.g., [01P]), that code has already been programmed. If there
is no “P”, then no code is programmed for that access code number. If an access code
already exists for the code number you select, it will be replaced by the new code.
5. To select a code for editing, press *. The keypad will display “Enter New Code < >”.
6. Enter the new [code]. All codes must be four digits unless otherwise indicated by your
installer. Enter digits 0 through 9 only. Once the code has been entered, the keypad will
beep 3 times. NOTE: Do not use the factory default or obvious codes such as [1111] or
