NOTE: [C][O][D][E] represents a unique sequence of four numbers that you select or program as your personal code for operating your security system.

Change an Access Code

To Change an Access Code from a TouchTone Phone:

  1. Press * + [C][O][D][E] + # + 8 from any TouchTone phone (off hook), and listen for one siren BEEP.
  2. Immediately enter your new access code. The system announces your new code "N N N N Ok".
  3. Listen carefully to the code announcement to be sure it is correct.

To Change an Access Code from the Alphanumeric Touchpad:

  1. Enter [C][O][D][E] + STATUS + 8. The display will read ACCESS CODE _ _ _ _.
  2. Enter your new code. The touchpad displays: ACCESS CODE OK.
CAUTION:

Avoid using the number 6 in your primary and temporary access codes. Since the system uses 6 to bypass sensors, it could interfere with normal system arming when detected as part of your access code.

IMPORTANT!
7777, 8888, AND 9999 cannot be used as access codes. These are panic codes in the security system and cannot be changed.

Automatic Test Features

Your security system has server al automatic test routines built in. If the system detects a problem, it notifies you.

  • If the system detects a problem, the interior sirens beep rapidly, six times every minute. As soon as you pick up the telephone, they system immediately announces the problem and releases the telephone to your control. You are then able to review the message. Perform a short status test by pressing * + #. The six beeps may occur again 10 hours later if the problem is not corrected. The arming level indicator on the Alphanumeric Touchpad blinks until the trouble is corrected.
  • If monitored, the system reports the trouble condition to the monitoring service.

The following table describes some of the trouble messages you may hear:
