1. Arming the System


To arm the system, enter your 4 digit access code. As you press each digit the keypad will beep. If the correct code is entered, the keypad will beep quickly and the "Armed" light will come on. If the access code was entered incorrectly, or the "Ready" light comes on, the keypad will buzz steadily for 2 seconds. If this occurs, press the pound key and re-enter your code.


When the correct access code is entered and the "Armed" light comes on, exit the premises. At the end of the exit delay time, all lights on the keypad will go out except the "Armed" light and the system will be fully armed. The exit time delay can be adjusted by your N E S Alarm installer.


Alternate Arming Methods - AWAY Arming


Arming the system in the "Away" mode will have all the interior and perimeter zones active. To arm in the "Away" mode, just enter your access code and exit thru the designated delay zone. The system will recognize the occupants have left the premises and once the exit delay has expired, the system will be fully armed.


Alternate Arming Methods - STAY Arming


This feature allows you to arm the perimeter zones while leaving the interior zones inactive so that you can remain on the premises while the system is armed. To arm in the "Stay" mode, enter your access code to arm the system, but do not exit the premises. The system will arm in the "stay" mode automatically bypassing the interior zones.


To leave the premise while it is in "Stay" mode press *0. The system will give you a 2 minute exit delay so that you may exit thru the delay door. You may also use this code as a way to QUICK-ARM the system if you enter this code when the system is disarmed. Note that this code will only arm the system, you still need a valid access code to disarm it.


2. Disarming the System


Enter the premise thru a designated entry delay door. Upon opening the door your keypad will sound a beep letting you know to disarm the system. Just go to the keypad and enter your access code. If you make an error entering your code, just enter it again. Once a correct access code is entered the keypad will stop beeping and the "ready" light will come on.


3. Updating the Master Code or Adding New Access Codes


To change the current master code:

  • Enter *5 (current master code) 40 (new master code)
  • The (master code) must be 4 digits, 0 thru 9 only
  • Push # to return to the Ready mode when you are finished


Adding additional codes:

  • Up to 32 additional access codes (01 thru 32) may be added
  • Enter *5 (master code) (code number) (new 4 digit code)
  • The (code number) is a double digit number 01 to 32
  • Push # to return to the Ready mode when you are finished
  • Always write down your access codes and keep them in a safe place


To remove a code from the system:

  • Enter *5 (master code) (code number) *
  • The (code number) is always a 2 digit number from 01 to 32. The (master code) cannot be erased
  • Push # to return to the Ready mode when you are finished


4. Bypassing Zones


Use zone bypassing when access is needed to part of the protected area while the system is armed. Bypassed zones will not cause an alarm. Zones cannot be bypassed after the system is armed.


To bypass zones:

  • Enter *1 (zone to bypass)
  • The (zone number) is a 2 digit number from 01 to 32


As each zone is bypassed, the zone light will come on to show which zones are bypassed. If a zone is bypassed in error, press that zone number again and the zone light will go off indicating the zone is not bypassed.


Push # to return to the Ready mode when you are finished.


6. Viewing Trouble Conditions


Your system continuously monitors a number of possible trouble conditions. If one of these conditions occur, the keypad will beep twice every 10 seconds and the keypad "Trouble" indicator will light. Pressing any key on the keypad will silence the beep, but the "trouble" indicator will remain on until the trouble condition is cleared.


To display the type of trouble condition that has occured:

  • Enter *2 and a zone light will come on to indicate which type of trouble exists.
