Testing Sirens

The purpose of this weekly test is to verify that the panel is activating sirens with the appropriate
warning sounds.
¾
To perform an alarm siren warning sound test:
1. Contact the central monitoring station to inform them that you will be activating alarms and
they should not dispatch authorities.
2. Activate alarms of each type (fire, police, auxiliary), one at a time.
3. Listen for the appropriate siren sound when each alarm is activated (see the "Alarm Sound"
table).

Test Procedure
Send a:
Police panic alarm,
Fire panic alarm, and
Auxiliary panic alarm.
Press the Bypass key.
Press and hold Lock and Unlock simultaneously for 3
seconds.
Press and hold the appropriate panic button(s) for 3 full
seconds.
Open the secured door or window.
Press and hold the test button until the system sounds
transmission beeps.
Avoid the motion detector's view for 5 minutes, then
enter its view.
Rub your hands together until warm, then place one
hand on the detector for 30 seconds.
Tap the glass twice, away from the sensor. Wait at least
30 seconds before testing again.
Tap the glass 3 or 4 inches from the sensor.
Apply an ice cube wrapped in plastic to the sensor.
Do not allow the sensor to get wet.
Your security system uses a variety of different alarm sirens, status beeps, and trouble beeps to
communicate with you. The next few pages describe the different sounds and what they mean.
Try to familiarize yourself with the differences. You will hear some sounds each time you tell
your security system to do something, like arm or disarm. Some sounds you will hear only when
there is a problem with the system, like a low battery. Other sounds you will only hear in an
emergency. Getting to know your system sounds allows you to react quickly and appropriately.
