Accenta/Optima User Guide
Your alarm system can have a duress code. The Duress code is used in a hold-up situation where there is
pressure to set or unset the system. The Duress code operates like your normal code but in addition it will
silently send a signal to the Alarm Receiving Centre. The operator at the ARC may request the Police to attend
The duress code can only set up, edited and deleted by the installer while in Engineer program mode.
The Duress code facility is not applicable to the Optima compact system.
