General System Operation Your security system is made up of a DSC control panel, one or more keypads and various sensors and detectors. The control panel will be mounted out of the way in a utility closet or in a basement. The metal cabinet contains the system electronics, fuses and standby battery.
Additional features of the PC1616/PC1832/PC1864 Security System are an Automatic Inhibit (Swinger Shutdown) for Alarm, Tamper and Trouble signals after 3 occurrences in a given set period (see Section 5.6 Option  in the Installation Manual). There is also a Programmable Keypad Lockout option (see Section 5.3 Option  in the Installation Manual).
Remote Arming and Disarming The system can be armed and/or disarmed using the remote control device (wireless key) model DSC WS4939. When arming the system by using the Arm button on the wireless key, the system will acknowledge the command by sounding a single bell squawk and when disarming using the Disarm button on the wireless key the system will acknowledge the command by sounding two bell squawks that can be heard from the exterior of the premises.
When Alarm Sounds The system can generate 2 different alarm sounds: Continuous Siren = Intrusion (Burglary Alarm) Temporal / Pulsed Siren = Fire Alarm Intrusion (Burglar) Alarm Continuous Siren If you are unsure of the source of the alarm approach with caution ! If the alarm was accidental, enter your Access Code to silence the alarm.

For SIA Installations, duplicate or duress codes derived from user codes +/- 1 digit are not allowed.
Bell Squawk Attribute This attribute is used to determine whether an access code should generate an arming/disarming Bell Squawk upon entry of the code for Away arming. The Wireless Keys with access codes associated with them may gener- ate Arming/Disarming Bell squawks. If desired, this option may be used with codes that are manually entered. Please contact your installer to have this programmed.
 Auto-arm Control Pressing  while in the User Function menu will enable (3 beeps) or disable (one long beep) the Auto-arm fea- ture, by partition. With this feature enabled, the panel will automatically arm in the Away mode (Stay Away zones active) at the same time each day.

Guidelines for Locating Smoke Detectors Research has shown that all hostile fires in homes generate smoke to a greater or lesser extent. Experiments with typical fires in homes indicate that detectable quantities of smoke precede detectable levels of heat in most cases. For these reasons, smoke alarms should be installed outside of each sleeping area and on each storey of the home.
Household Fire Safety Audit Read this section carefully for important information about fire safety. Most fires occur in the home. To minimize this danger, we recommend that a household fire safety audit be con- ducted and a fire escape plan be developed. 1.
