The fixed display touchpad used with Concord™ Express Systems includes ARMED and
READY indicator LEDs (light emitting diodes) that provide instant feedback.
The red LED is the ARMED indicator. It will flash during the exit delay when you are arming the
system to level 2 (STAY) or level 3 (AWAY). It will also flash during the entry delay, before you
disarm your system.
The arming indicator will stop flashing — but will remain on — when the exit delay expires and
the system is armed.
The arming indicator will be off when the system is disarmed.
The green LED is the READY indicator. It will be on whenever the system is functioning nor-
mally. The ready indicator shuts off if the system detects a trouble condition.
If your system contains smoke and fire sensors, it monitors the premises for smoke and fire
alarms 24 hours a day and in all arming levels.
These alarms cannot be cancelled or aborted and are always reported to the central station. Since
many communities charge for dispatching the fire department in error, your dealer may give you
specific instructions to follow in the event of an accidental smoke or fire alarm. Record these
instructions in the Appendix A User Sheets under "Accidental Smoke and Fire Alarms."
