How to Change Main Panel Battery

Put the system on test by pressing the down arrow 4 times the display will show system test press OK. The display will then show enter code (enter 4-digit code) & press ok. Then the display will show sensor test & press OK. Finally, the display will shop trip sensor.

Now you will need a Phillips screwdriver & unscrew the small screw from top of keypad

There are two pins on the top of the keypad that hold the front of the keypad onto the wall plate. Press those down & pull the front of the keypad away slowly, so the wires are not disconnected. The panel will make a snapping noise. Lay the front of the keypad down. The keypad may beep a couple of times (those are testing beeps, so you can ignore them)

Pull back on the two tabs holding the battery in place to remove it.

Pull on leads to disconnect from the old battery.

Match the correct lead to the correct post on the new battery & press on.

Slide the battery back into place making sure not to pinch the wires underneath it.

Close front cover keypad again. Making sure not to pinch any of the wiring while closing.

Insert screw back into top of keypad.

To take system out of test then press status 3 times & the display should show disarmed.

To stop the trouble beeps, press STATUS or arm/disarm the system while the trouble condition exists. Trouble beeps will resume four hours later unless the trouble condition is corrected.

The following list explains the trouble beep conditions:

AC power failure – This condition (if programmed by installer) occurs if your security system has been accidentally unplugged or if there has been an AC power outage. Any status lights go out immediately, and trouble beeps start after five minutes. If you press any button, the display will light and pressing STATUS will show the AC failure. If AC power is not restored within a programmed period of time (5 to 254 minutes) the system will call the central monitoring station. The back up battery, if fully charged, will last for 18 to 24 hours—depending on the load applied to the panel—with no AC power.

System battery failure – This condition occurs if the emergency backup battery has failed. Trouble beeps will start. Press the STATUS button and the display will show System Low Battery – If your AC power is not working, your security system will shut down once the battery has failed. If the condition does not clear after AC power has been restored and 24 hours have passed, call your security system dealer.

Restoration of power – This condition occurs after a complete loss of power (AC and battery). When power is restored, the panel will return to the arming state with the same zones bypassed it had prior to losing power.

Sensor failure -This condition occurs if a sensor is not communicating with the panel. Trouble beeps will start and the STATUS button will light. Press the STATUS button and the display will show what sensors have failed. Perform sensor tests. You may need to call your security system dealer if the problem continues.

Sensor low battery – This condition occurs if a system sensor has a low battery. The sensor may still be communicating with the panel. Trouble beeps will start and the STATUS button will light. Press the STATUS button and the display will show what sensors have a low battery. You may need to call your security system dealer to resolve this problem. Some sensor batteries can be replaced by the homeowner.

Fail-to-communicate – This condition occurs if your security system cannot communicate to the central monitoring station. Your system will try to report to the central monitoring station eight times before it tells you there is a fail-to-communicate problem. Trouble beeps will start, and the STATUS button will light. Press the STATUS button and the display will show Comm Test Fail or Comm Failure. You may need to call your security system dealer if the problem continues.

Sensor open – This condition occurs if a door or window is open or a system sensor has been disturbed and not reset properly. For example, a door/window sensor magnet may have been removed from the sensor. Your system will indicate this condition to you by causing the STATUS button to light. When you press the STATUS button, the display shows, for example, Sn 1 Front Door Open. Correct the problem by resetting the sensor. If this condition continues, call your security system dealer.

Sensor tampered – This condition occurs when a sensor is physically tampered with, for example, the cover is taken off of one of the sensors. If the system is armed an alarm will occur. Your system will indicate this condition to you by causing the STATUS button to light. Trouble beeps will start. Press the STATUS button and the display shows Sn # Name Tampered. Correct the problem by resetting the sensor. If this condition continues, call your security system dealer.

RF jam detected – The panel receiver may be experiencing some interference. The system will call to notify the central monitoring station about this problem.

Clearing status – Some types of status conditions, such as the alarm history, must be cleared manually. To clear system status, press the STATUS button, read and/or listen to the status messages, then press DISARM. If the trouble condition was a low system battery, perform a sensor test. The STATUS light should turn off if all trouble conditions have been corrected.

When a smoke detector goes off, disarm the system to silence the siren, wireless smoke sensors reset automatically once they are clear of smoke.

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 Chime feature to signal when a protected door is opened while the system is disarmed. The panel chimes twice when a chime sensor is tripped, if the chime mode is enabled. This feature allows you to be notified when family members are going in and out of your home. The Chime features are turned on or off in the system menu.

To enable or disable the Chime feature:

1. Scroll up/down until the display shows Chime.

2. Press Enter. The current setting will flash.

3. Scroll up/down to toggle Chime on/off.

4. Press Enter. The setting will stop flashing.

5. Press STATUS to exit.

A solid bell icon will appear in the display when Chime is enabled.

Bypassing a sensor allows you to open the sensor while the system is armed.

For example, if your Doors & Windows are armed and you want to open your kitchen window but do not want to disarm the entire system, then you can bypass the kitchen window sensor and then open the kitchen window without causing an alarm. Bypassed sensors are automatically unbypassed when the arming level is changed to a level where the sensor is not active.

Bypassing

1. Press BYPASS and enter the master code.

2. Scroll up/down until you reach the sensor to be bypassed.

3. The display shows, for example, Sn 1 Front Door on the first line.

4. Press Enter to bypass (deactivate) the sensor.

5. When a sensor is bypassed, the panel displays Bypassed on the second line.

Unbypassing

1. Press BYPASS and enter the master code.

2. Scroll up/down to the sensor to be unbypassed. The sensor must be currently bypassed.

3. Press Enter to unbypass (reactivate) the sensor.

4. The panel removes the word Bypassed from the second line of the display.

To stop the trouble beeps, press STATUS or arm/disarm the system while the trouble condition exists. Trouble beeps will resume four hours later unless the trouble condition is corrected.

Disarm (off)

1. Press DISARM, then enter your code when the panel displays Enter Code.

2. The panel displays and speaks Disarmed, the DISARM button lights up, and the panel beeps once. Arming doors and windows
