STEP 6 – Configure the Fire Panel
1. Ensure the Telco Fault on the panel is enabled. Then choose a setting that is no higher than 90

1. Close the Wall Outlet Box, then close and lock the cabinet cover.
2. Refer to the fire panel's installation/operation guide the testing procedure.
3. (Notify the monitoring station that a test will be conducted.) Test the system to ensure it is
