If you do not disar m t he syst em befor e t he ent r y delay ends, and an
ent r y/exit door or int er ior zone is st ill open, t he alar m sound
cont inues and an exit alar m message is sent t o t he alar m monit or ing
company. The message EXIT ALARM or EA is displayed on t he
keypad, along wit h a zone number indicat ing t he fault ed zone. To st op
t he alar m, t he syst em must be disar med (by ent er ing your 4-digit
secur it y code). To clear t he display, ent er your secur it y code plus
OFF.
An exit alar m also r esult s if an ent r y/exit door or int er ior zone is
fault ed wit hin 2 minut es aft er t he end of t he exit delay.

Recommendations for Smoke and Heat Detectors
Wit h r egar d t o t he number and placement of smoke/heat det ect or s,
we subscr ibe t o t he r ecommendat ions cont ained in t he Nat ional Fir e
Pr ot ect ion Associat ion's (NFPA) St andar d #72, not ed below.
Ear ly-war ning fir e det ect ion is best achieved by t he inst allat ion
of fir e det ect ion equipment in all r ooms and ar eas of t he
household as follows: For minimum pr ot ect ion, a smoke det ect or
should be inst alled out side of each separ at e sleeping ar ea, and
on each addit ional floor of a mult i-floor family living unit ,
including basement s. The inst allat ion of smoke det ect or s in
kit chens, at t ics (finished or unfinished), or in gar ages is not
nor mally r ecommended.
For addit ional pr ot ect ion, t he NFPA r ecommends t hat you inst all
heat or smoke det ect or s in t he living r oom, dining r oom, bedr oom(s),
kit chen, hallway(s), at t ic, fur nace r oom, ut ilit y and st or age r ooms,
basement s, and at t ached gar ages.

Recommendations for Proper Protection (cont'd)
Recommendations for Proper Intrusion Protection
For pr oper int r usion cover age, sensor s should be locat ed at ever y
possible point of ent r y t o a home or commer cial pr emises. This
includes skylight s and upper windows in a mult i-level building.
In addit ion, we r ecommend t hat r adio backup be used in a secur it y

Emergency Evacuation
Est ablish and r egular ly pr act ice a plan of escape in t he event of fir e. The following
st eps ar e r ecommended by t he Nat ional Fir e Pr ot ect ion Associat ion:
1. Posit ion your det ect or or your int er ior and/or ext er ior
sounder s so t hat t hey can be hear d by all occupant s.
2. Det er mine t wo means of escape fr om each r oom. One
pat h of escape should lead t o t he door t hat per mit s
nor mal exit fr om t he building. The ot her should be
an alt er nat ive r out e, such as a window, should your
pr imar y escape pat h be impassable. St at ion an
escape ladder at such windows if t her e is a long dr op
t o t he gr ound.
3. Sket ch a floor plan of t he building. Show windows,
door s, st air s, and r ooft ops t hat can be used t o escape.
Indicat e escape r out es for each r oom. Keep t hese
r out es fr ee fr om obst r uct ion and post copies of t he
escape r out es in ever y r oom.
4. Assur e t hat all bedr oom door s ar e shut while you ar e
asleep. This will pr event deadly smoke fr om ent er ing
while you escape.
5. To det er mine which escape pat h t o use dur ing a fir e,
fir st feel t he door . If it is hot , check your alt er nat e
escape r out e. If t he door is cool, open it caut iously. Be
pr epar ed t o slam t he door if smoke or heat r ushes in.
6. Wher e smoke is pr esent , cr awl on t he floor ; do not
walk upr ight . Smoke r ises and may over come you.
Clear er air is near t he floor .
7. Escape quickly; don't panic.
8. Est ablish a common meet ing place out door s, away fr om your house, wher e
ever yone can meet and t hen t ake st eps t o cont act t he aut hor it ies and account for

Maintaining Your System
Taking Care of Your System
The component s of your secur it y syst em ar e designed t o be as
maint enance-fr ee as possible. However , t o make sur e t hat your
syst em is in r eliable wor king condit ion:
1. Test your syst em weekly.
2. Test your syst em aft er any alar m occur s (see Test i ng t he Syst em
sect ion).
Replacing Batteries in Wireless Sensors
Each wir eless sensor in your syst em has a 9-volt or 3-volt bat t er y. The
syst em det ect s a low bat t er y in any wir eless sensor , including smoke
det ect or s, t he opt ional per sonal emer gency t r ansmit t er , and t he
opt ional por t able wir eless keypad. (The syst em det ect s a low bat t er y
in a por t able wir eless keypad as soon as one of it s keys is pr essed, and
r esponds be displaying 00 on t he wir ed keypad.)
Alkaline bat t er ies pr ovide a minimum of 1 year of oper at ion, and in
most unit s and applicat ions, pr ovide 2–4 year s of ser vice. Thr ee-volt
lit hium bat t er ies pr ovide up t o 4 or mor e year s of oper at ion. Act ual
bat t er y life depends on t he envir onment in which t he sensor is used,
t he number of signals t hat t he t r ansmit t er in t he sensor has t o send,
and t he specific t ype of sensor . Fact or s such as humidit y, high or low
t emper at ur es, or lar ge swings in t emper at ur e may all lead t o t he
r educt ion of act ual bat t er y life in an inst allat ion.
If you have a low bat t er y in a wir eless sensor , t he keypad displays a
LOW BATTERY message. In addit ion, a bat t er y-oper at ed smoke
det ect or wit h a low bat t er y emit s a single "chir p" sound
appr oximat ely once ever y 20–30 seconds, ident ifying it self as t he
smoke det ect or wit h t he weak bat t er y.
NOTE: The LOW BATTERY message comes on as a war ning t hat
bat t er y r eplacement in t he indicat ed sensor (s) is due wit hin 30 days.
In t he meant ime, t he sensor causing t he low-bat t er y indicat ion is st ill
fully oper at ional.
Wireless
sensors may
not have
been
installed in
your security
system.
- 47 -
Maintaining Your System (cont'd)
Important: Use only bat t er ies r ecommended by your inst aller as
r eplacement .
Silencing Low Battery Warning Tones at the Keypad
You can silence t he keypad’s war ning t ones by pr essing t he
1
key,
OFF
but t he keypad's LOW BATTERY message display will r emain on as
a r eminder t hat you have a low-bat t er y condit ion in one or mor e of
your sensor s. When you r eplace t he weak bat t er y wit h a fr esh one, t he
sensor will send a "good bat t er y" signal t o t he cont r ol as soon as t he
sensor is act ivat ed (opening/closing of door , window, et c.), causing t he
LOW BATTERY display t o t ur n off. If t he sensor is not act ivat ed, t he
display will aut omat ically clear wit hin appr oximat ely 1 hour .
Routine Care
• Tr eat t he component s of your secur it y syst em as you would any
ot her elect r ical equipment . Do not slam sensor -pr ot ect ed door s or
windows.
• Keep dust fr om accumulat ing on t he keypad and all pr ot ect ive
sensor s, par t icular ly on mot ion sensor s and smoke det ect or s.
• The keypad and sensor s should be cleaned car efully wit h a dr y soft
clot h. Do not sp r a y wa t er or a ny ot her fl ui d on t he uni t s.

While t his syst em is an advanced design secur it y syst em, it does not offer guar ant eed pr ot ect ion
against bur glar y or fir e or ot her emer gency. Any alar m syst em, whet her commer cial or r esident ial, is
subject t o compr omise or failur e t o war n for a var iet y of r easons. For example:
• Int r uder s may gain access t hr ough unpr ot ect ed openings or have t he t echnical sophist icat ion t o
bypass an alar m sensor or disconnect an alar m war ning device.
• Int r usion det ect or s (e.g., passive infr ar ed det ect or s), smoke det ect or s, and many ot her sensing
devices will not wor k wit hout power . Bat t er y-oper at ed devices will not wor k wit hout bat t er ies,
wit h dead bat t er ies, or if t he bat t er ies ar e not put in pr oper ly. Devices power ed solely by AC will
not wor k if t heir AC power supply is cut off for any r eason, however br iefly.
• Signals sent by wir eless t r ansmit t er s may be blocked or r eflect ed by met al befor e t hey r each t he

level of a r esidence or building. A second-floor det ect or , for example, may not sense a fir st -floor or
basement fir e. Mor eover , smoke det ect or s have sensing limit at ions. No smoke det ect or can sense
ever y kind of fir e ever y t ime. In gener al, det ect or s may not always war n about fir es caused by
car elessness and safet y hazar ds like smoking in bed, violent explosions, escaping gas, impr oper
st or age of flammable mat er ials, over loaded elect r ical cir cuit s, childr en playing wit h mat ches, or
ar son. Depending upon t he nat ur e of t he fir e and/or t he locat ions of t he smoke det ect or s, t he
