Control Center Control button Antenna Status LED The Control Center, typically located on the upper part of the front windshield. It consists of: The In-vehicle system antenna. The Status LED, as a visual indicator of the system’s status. The Control button, for placing the system into Valet Mode* and to perform the Emergency Override* operation.
Remote control command table Feature Description Lock the doors and arm the vehicle Unlock the doors and disarm the vehicle Activate Silent Mode and Auxilairy functions Panic Press together to control an Auxiliary output Three- button remote conﬁguration This system may be used with an optional 3-button remote, which is available for purchased through your authorized Directed dealer.
Remote control functions The remote control buttons are used to send commands to the sys- tem.The descriptions below reﬂect the standard conﬁguration for this system. The buttons can be custom conﬁgured for the user’s speciﬁc needs by the installer. Press and release Doors lock and system is armed.
Using your system Active arming You can activate or arm the system by pressing for one second. When the system arms you will hear a short siren sound or chirp, and the parking lights ﬂash once. If the vehicle’s power door locks have been connected to the system, the doors lock.
When the system is armed: Light impacts trigger the Warn Away® signal. When triggered,the siren chirps and the parking lights ﬂash for a few seconds. Heavy impacts trip a Triggered Sequence. The sequence consists of the siren sounding continuously and the parking lights ﬂashing for a pre-programmed period, which can range in duration from 1 to 180 seconds.
Multi-level security arming Multi-Level Security Arming allows you to select which of the security system’s inputs or sensors are active, or are bypassed when the system is armed. (See the Table of Zones section of this guide) Press one time to arm the system, siren chirps one time. Pressing again activates Multi-Level Security Arming.
Arming while driving Your system can be armed while driving the vehicle. Press on your transmitter for two seconds while the vehicle is run- ning or while the ignition is on. The siren chirps once, and then once more indicating that the ignition is on. The security system does not respond to any input except the door triggers and the Failsafe®...
High Security Disarm High Security Disarm makes it possible to silence and reset the system when it is triggering, without disarming. If the system is triggered, and the siren sounds for longer than six seconds, pressing will stop the trigger and return the system to an armed state. The system does not disarm, but rather reset.
Location of Valet Button_________________________________ Number of Pulses______________________________________ The unit responds to one to ﬁve pulses of the Valet button when dis- arming. Check with your installer to discuss how you want the system conﬁgured. Note: As a precaution, if programmed for passive arming the system should be placed into Valet Mode until a remote is available.
Panic mode If you are threatened in or near your vehicle, you can attract attention by triggering the system with your remote. Press for approximately two seconds, to enter Panic Mode. The siren sounds and the parking lights ﬂash for the programmed siren duration.
Nuisance prevention circuitry Your system has Directed’s Nuisance Prevention Circuitry (NPC). It prevents annoying repetitive trigger sequences due to faulty door pin switch es or en vi ron men tal con di tions such as thunder, jack ham mers, or airport noise. For example, if the alarm triggers three times within a 60- minute period and each time the same sensor or switch triggers the alarm, NPC will interpret those triggers as false alarms.
Auxiliary outputs This system also supplies outputs that can control convenience options such as remote control trunk release and window automation. Consult your dealer for available options for your system. Channel 2 Trunk release: When connected, pressing AUX for 1.5 seconds will remotely release the vehicle trunk lid.
Arming diagnostics If the system is armed while an input is active - door open, sensor triggering - the unit chirps once when arming and then one more time a few seconds later. This is called Bypass Notiﬁcation. Bypass Notiﬁcation does not occur when using Silent Mode or if chirps have been programmed OFF.
System status chirps The siren chirps when arming/disarming the system. The pattern of chirps audibly report the system’s status as described below. Action Chirps Description System armed 3-second delay, System armed with Bypass Notification Disarm System disarmed Disarm System disarmed with Tamper Alert Disarm System disarmed NPC active Table of zones...
Interpreting zone diagnostics Warn Away responses are not reported by arming or disarming diag- nostics. If you receive a Bypass notiﬁcation when arming or a Tamper Alert notiﬁcation when disarming, look at the in-vehicle status LED. Active or triggered zones will be indicated by a pattern of blinks by this LED.
installed, the system can never in ad vert ent ly stop your vehicle in trafﬁc or on railroad tracks while the vehicle is in operation. It is unlike other systems that shut down your engine while it is running. This sys tem is de signed to per form starter in ter rupt, or starter kill.
Triggered sequence, VRS Fif teen seconds after the last door has closed, the in-vehicle LED will begin ﬂashing. This delay is intended to allow you time to distance your self from your ve hi cle in the event of a carjacking. Forty-ﬁve seconds later, the siren begins chirping and the park ing lights begin ﬂashing.
Disarming the VRS Take the time to familiarize yourself with the VRS trig ger ing se quence and the disarm pro ce dure. It is important to recognize and identify the VRS trigger sequence and know how to disarm it in case of ac ci den- tal activation.
Code hopping The receiver and transmitters each use mathematical formulas called al go rithms to change their codes each time the transmitter is used. This technology has been developed to increase the security of the unit. The control unit knows what the next codes should be. This helps to keep the transmitter “in sync”...
Rapid resume logic This Directed system will store its current state to non-volatile memory. If power is lost and then reconnected, the system will recall the stored state from memory. This means if the unit is in Valet Mode and the battery is dis con nect ed for any reason, such as servicing the car, when the battery is re con nect ed the unit will still be in Valet Mode.
Programming options Programming options control what your system does during normal op er a tion, and require few or no additional parts. However, some may require additional in stal la tion labor. The following is a list of the program settings, with the factory settings in Bold: Active arming (only with the remote) or passive arming (au to mat- ic arming 30- seconds after the last door has been closed).
Panic mode en abled/dis abled with the ig ni tion on: Some states have laws against siren ca pa bil i ty in a mov ing vehicle. Forced passive arming On or off: If your system is programmed for passive arming and the forced pas sive arming feature has been pro grammed on, the system will passively arm af ter one hour, even if a protected entry has been left open.
Full trigger response 30 or 60 seconds: This determines how long the full triggered sequence lasts. Some states have laws regulat- ing how long a security system can sound before it is considered a nuisance. If your installer is programming the security system with the Directed Bitwriter, the full triggered response can be programmed for any duration ranging from 1 to 180 seconds.
Installation options The system has many options that may require extra parts and labor. Some of the possibilities are listed here. Progressive unlocking: In most cars with electric power door locks, the system can be conﬁgured so that when the system is disarmed, only the driver’s door unlocks.
Security & Convenience Expansions Listed are some of the many expansion options avail able. Please con- tact your dealer to ﬁnd out about all the convenience options avail- able to you. Audio Sensor: Metal on glass, cracking glass, and breaking glass each produce dis tinc tive acoustic signatures.
Power Window Control: Automatic power window control is pro vid- ed with the 529T and 530T systems. Tilt Sensor: The 507M tilt sensor can be added to your system to protect your car when its parked. An alarm is triggered if the vehicle is lifted, to protect expensive rims.
