protection point (no confirming sounds, no display), call for
service immediately.
The external sounder should sound for 1 second and then turn
off. If the sounder does not sound, CALL FOR SERVICE.
Open each protected door and window in turn and listen for three
beeps from the keypad. Identification (zone number or zone
description) of each faulted protection point should appear on the
display. The display clears when the door or window is closed.
The identification of the detector should appear on the display
when it is activated. The display clears when no motion is detected.
Note that if wireless motion detectors are used, there is a 3-minute
delay between activations. This is to conserve battery life.
The identification of each detector should appear on the display
when each is activated.
When all protection points have been checked and are intact
(closed), there should be no zone identification numbers displayed
on the keypad.
If the test mode is inadvertently left active, it automatically turns
off after 4 hours. During the final five minutes, the keypad emits a
double beep every 30 seconds.
