Quick Guide to User Functions
Full User Guide Available Online: This Quick Guide describes the most frequently used features and functions of your system. For full
details of all user functions, please see the system's User Guide located online at: http://www.security.honeywell.com/hsc/products.
The full version User Guide is also available from your installer upon request.
Congratulations on your ownership of a Honeywell Security System. This system provides:
• Three forms of detection: burglary, fire and emergency (see your installer for
which forms of detection are installed)
• At least one keypad which provides control of system and displays system status
• Your system may also be programmed to automatically send alarm and status
messages to a Central Monitoring Station
The following is a list of some of the most common features and
functions of your system:
• Several modes of burglary detection: Away, Stay, Instant, Maximum.
• Bypass feature lets authorized persons to bypass selected zones
while leaving the rest of the system armed.
• Chime mode alerts you to the opening of protected doors and
windows while the system is disarmed, if enabled.
• Fire and carbon monoxide detection are always active (if installed)
and an alarm sounds if a fire or carbon monoxide condition is
• Panic keys (if programmed) let you manually initiate a fire and
personal alarms using the keypad.
• User Code security codes are used in conjunction with keypad
command to perform system functions.
• Each user can be assigned a different security code, each with
different authority levels.
• The system sensing devices have been assigned to various "zones,"
which are specific areas of detection (e.g., front door, storage room
• Zone numbers (points of detection) are displayed at the keypad
when an alarm or trouble condition occurs.
• Partitions provide 8 independent areas of detection with each
partition containing a group of zones that can be armed and
disarmed without affecting other zones.
• Function keys may have been programmed to perform various
functions. Ask your installer if these keys are active.
• A Scheduling feature can be programmed to automatically perform
certain functions (e.g., arm the system) at a predetermined time
each day. See the full User Guide for details.
• Entry Delays give you time to disarm the system when you enter
through the designated entrance door.
• You must disarm the system before the entry delay period ends, or
an alarm will occur (keypad beeps during the entry delay period,
reminding you to disarm the system).
• Exit delay gives you time after arming the system to leave through
the designated exit door(s) without setting off an alarm. If
programmed, a slow beeping will sound during the exit delay period
until the last 10 seconds, which then changes to fast beeping
(alerting you to the end of exit delay). If you cannot leave within this
delay time period, you should stop, disarm the system, and start
over to avoid a false alarm.
• See your installer for your delay times. See the full User Guide for
details on Exit Error alarms.
• Various sensors for perimeter and interior
• Smoke and/or combustion detectors designed
to provide early warning in case of fire.

• If your system is connected to a Central Monitoring Station,
an alarm message is also sent (may be delayed 30 seconds
to reduce false alarms).
• To stop the alarm sounding, simply disarm the system.
• Memory of Alarm: When an alarm condition occurs, the
keypad displays the number(s) of the zone(s) that caused the
problem, and displays the type of alarm. Clear the Memory of
Alarm display by entering another "off" sequence.
IMPORTANT: If you return to the premises and the main
burglary sounder is on, or the keypad beeps rapidly upon
entering the premises, it indicates that an alarm has oc-
curred during your absence and an intruder may still be
on the premises. LEAVE IMMEDIATELY and CONTACT THE
POLICE from a nearby safe location.
NOTES on FIRE and CO DETECTION
Your fire alarm system (if installed) is on 24 hours a day, for
continuous detection. In the event of an emergency, the
smoke and heat detectors sound their alarms, triggering a
loud, interrupted pulsed sound from the Keypad(s) and any
• You can silence the alarm at any time by pressing a valid
code + OFF.
• Carbon monoxide (CO) detectors, if installed, provide
continuous detection. If a high level of carbon monoxide is
detected, an interrupted pulsed alarm sound occurs at the
keypads and the detector(s). Immediately move to a spot
where fresh air is available, preferably outdoors. From a safe
area, call your security service provider for further
instructions. To silence the keypad sounding, press a valid
code + OFF. To silence the detector, see its instructions.
