What do the command center warning tones mean?
Command Center Warning Signals
The Command Center contains a built-in sounder used as an interior warning device. A bell or siren can also be mounted on the exterior of your premises to alert your neighbors of an emergency and to give the police an audible reference to help them locate the alarm. Several different warning signals are emitted from the Command Center to alert you when an event occurs (not all signals will be heard outside). Some of these tones are optional, and can be selected by your alarm technician.
1. Entrance Warning: The Command Center beeps during the entry delay period to remind you to disarm your security system. If the security system is not disarmed before the entry delay expires, an alarm signal may be sent to the Central Station and the alarm audible sounds. 2. Keystroke Entry: Pressing any key on the Command Center sounds a short beep tone, indicating that the entry is accepted. 3. Faulted Zone: The Command Center sounder is activated for two seconds after you enter an arming command to indicate that a zone is faulted, and the indicator of the faulted zone lights. 4. Watch Tone: When the Perimeter Watch Mode is activated, the Command Center emits a brief tone to alert you when any perimeter zone is faulted and the zone indicator lights to indicate which zone is faulted. The tone sounds only when the door or window is opened. It does not sound again for that zone until the door or window is closed and then reopened. 5. Service Tone: Some zones may be programmed to sound a service tone when they are faulted. The zone indicator light annunciates which zone is faulted. To silence the service tone, enter COMMAND 4 or enter your personal passcode plus ENT, at the Command Center. NOTE: Some zones, such as fire zones, may be programmed so that the sounder cannot be silenced until the zone fault is corrected My system can be silenced by entering COMMAND 4 or by using my personal passcode plus ENT. The system cannot be silenced unless the zone is returned to normal. 6. Telephone Trouble: If the security system cannot report to the Central Station due to telephone line trouble or other cause, the Command Center emits a steady beep tone. This tone may be silenced by entering COMMAND 4 or your personal passcode plus ENT.

How do I change a personal passcode?
Personal Passcode Change
Your security system provides you with the convenient feature of changing your personal passcode whenever you feel it necessary, without the services of your alarm technician. It is recommended that you write down your old and new passcodes before you begin.
Notes Before Beginning:
The first and last digits of your new passcode should NOT be the same. Care should be given when entering a passcode containing the same digit in consecutive positions within the new passcode (e.g., "3" in 33467). When entering this type of passcode, it is easy to make mistakes.
The passcode can be from 2 to 5 digits in length.
The new passcode must begin with the same first digit as the old passcode. Example: If the old passcode is 2563, the new passcode must begin with a "2".
To change your personal passcode: 1. Ensure that your security system is disarmed. 2. Press the COMMAND bar. The Command Mode indicator lightcomes on.
3. Press the 5 key. Your security system is now in the passcode change mode. 4. Enter the passcode you wish to change. Press the ENT key. 5. Enter the new passcode. Press the ENT key. 6. Enter the new passcode again. Press the ENT key. The CMD light will go out. If the CMD light goes out before completing step 6, you must start the passcode change procedure over from the beginning. 7. Test the new passcode by using it to arm and disarm the system. Do not use any of the Command Center arming commands to arm the system until you are certain that the new passcode is working
How to arm entire system with delays.
To arm the entire system with delays, follow the steps below:
COMMAND 1 is used to arm the entire system, both perimeter and interior zones. Once you have entered COMMAND 1, the exit delay time starts. You now have a predetermined amount of time to exit the protected area before the system arms. During the exit period, you may move through motion detectors or any protected area on your way to the exit door without causing an alarm. To cancel COMMAND 1, enter your personal passcode and press ENT.
NOTE: If you leave the building after the exit time expires, you may begin the entry delay, or initiate an alarm. If this happens, disarm your system by entering your personal passcode and press ENT . If your system reports to a Central Station, you may need to call them if an alarm occurs. Application
COMMAND 1 is useful in applications where you want your cleaning service, a serviceperson or anyone to arm your system when they leave, but you do not want them to have the passcode to disarm the system. COMMAND 1 arms the system, but it will not disarm the system.
Arming with COMMAND 1:
1. Ensure that all zones are secure. All of the Zone Status indicator lights on the Command Center should be off. 2. Press the COMMAND bar. The Command Mode indicator light comes on. 3. Press the 1 key. The PERIMETER indicator and the INTERIOR indicator lights begin to flash on and off. This indicates that the system has begun exit delay time. 4. To disarm your security system or cancel COMMAND 1, enter your personal passcode and press ENT before the delay time expires.
How do I tell if my wiring is good and all the devices are connected on the D6112 keypad bus?
Remove the data wires from terminals 11 and 13 on the control panel. Also remove the power going to those devices. Using a multimeter set to read resistance, place one lead on a data wire and the other lead on the other data wire.
The correct resistance reading should be 9K Ohms per device connected.
Number of device / Device Resistance / Wire / Max resistance
1 9 k ohms 15 k ohms 23 k ohms
2 18 k ohms 15 k ohms 32 k ohms
3 27 k ohms 15 k ohms 41 k ohms
4 36 k ohms 15 k ohms 50 k ohms
