    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.
