Sked Functions COMMAND 52
The Skeds feature tells your security system to automatically initiate certain system tasks at scheduled times. Each Sked instructs your system to initiate a specific task like disabling Opening/Closing Reports, controlling Relays, bypassing specified zones, etc.
COMMAND 52 lets you review and/or change certain aspects of the Skeds feature in your security system. Each Sked is programmed with either a time and/or date (January 01 to December 31) or day(s) of the week (Sunday to Saturday). The time is specified by the exact hour and minute with a 24-hour clock. The day or date of execution can only be changed by your alarm technician. You can only use COMMAND 52 while your system is disarmed.
COMMAND 52 will NOT operate while the system is Armed, Perimeter Armed, or during Entry or Exit Delays.
Before you can use COMMAND 52, you must enter a passcode beginning with the digit "8" that was programmed into your security system by your alarm technician Please consult your alarm company before making any changes to the Skeds functions.
Sked functions associated with each Alpha II Function Key (A, B, C, D): In the COMMAND 52 Mode, the function keys (A, B, C,D) are used for selecting functions related to the Skeds feature and are different from their normal operation.
A Key = Active Skeds Review, B Key = Bypass Holiday (Turn ON/OFF), C Key = Change Sked Time, D Key = Day of Week Change.
To use COMMAND 52:
A = Active Skeds Review In the COMMAND 52 Mode, pressing Function Key A lets you review "active" Skeds (working Skeds which can have their times changed). This function displays the Number and Type of each active Sked. There are two Sked Types: Type 1 (Date of Year) and Type 2 (Day of Week). You can review each Sked Type as it appears on the display of your Alpha II Command Center. After each active Sked has been displayed once, your security system automatically exits the "Active Skeds Review" function.
To use Function A:
NOTE: If at any time you want to QUIT and EXIT this function, press function A key to exit the Active Skeds Review and return to SKEDS FUNCTION?.
B = Bypass Holiday (Turn Holiday Bit ON/OFF) Pressing Function Key B lets you bypass (Turn-OFF) or activate (Turn-ON) the current day as a Holiday. Certain Skeds may be programmed into your security system by your alarm company to operate on specified days, except when those days fall on designated holidays. Holiday periods are programmed into your security system by your alarm company. However, you may decide that you want to bypass a scheduled holiday. Or, you may want to manually activate a holiday period. To do so, pressing Function Key B in the COMMAND 52 Mode lets you turn the Holiday Bit ON or OFF.
This Function Key "toggles" the selection between ON and OFF, each time it is pressed. When the desired selection is showing in your Alpha II display, press the COMMAND Bar to enter the selection into the memory of your security system. At the same time, this causes your system to automatically exit the "Holiday Bypass" function.
To bypass or activate Holiday Mode (Turn ON or OFF):

Pressing Function Key C lets you Review and/or Change Sked Times, Set Sked Intervals, and Disable Skeds.
