Security System Operation (cont'd)
How to Check the Status of Other Partitions
This system supports between one and eight Partitions (depending on
the system.) Partitioning enables a single physical alarm system to
control up to eight areas of protection (partitions) depending on the
system you have purchased. Each TouchCenter and other keypad is
assigned a default partition for display purposes, and will show only
that partition's information.
Note: A letter "H" following the partition name or number indicates
that this is the default partition for the TouchCenter.
For example, if your physical site is a four-apartment housing unit,
your alarm system may be configured with four partitions. Each
apartment's zones (door, windows, smoke detectors, etc.) are assigned
arming/disarming control of its own partition (area). A landlord or
manager may be granted access to all partitions, so he/she can control
the entire system.
If a user is so authorized, a TouchCenter or other keypad in one
partition can be used to perform system functions in another
programmed by the installer can be accessed in this manner.)
To check the status of other partitions perform the following:
1. From the "Home" screen, press the SECURITY button. The "Arming" screen
2. Press the "Current Partition" tab (lower
edge of the screen; in this case it displays
Main H). The "User Authorization" screen
is displayed with the instructions "For
Authorized Partitions, Enter Code".
