Perimeter Watch Mode, command 6.
Perimeter Watch Mode
COMMAND 6 is used to monitor the perimeter of your building when the system is disarmed. This is called the Perimeter Watch Mode. When in this mode, the Alpha II emits a short tone to alert you of entry or exit through the perimeter of your building. No alarms are generated by this mode except 24-hour alarms (fire, panic, etc.). There is no tone for interior movement.
This command is useful in a residential system when you want to monitor entrances or exits in your home. In commercial installations, the Perimeter Watch Mode can be used as a door chime to alert you when a customer or delivery person has entered your business.
To use COMMAND 6:
- Press the COMMAND bar. The display should show SYSTEM COMMAND.
- Press the 6 key. The display now shows WATCH.
- To exit the Perimeter Watch Mode, press COMMAND, then 6 or arm the system.
