How do I do a local system test?
Local System Test
It is easy for you to test your security system without sending reports to the Central Station. This local system test is performed only when the security system is disarmed to ensure that your security system is operating properly, and should be used to test your system regularly.
COMMAND 44 is used to test your security system. This command tests your Command Center, the system’s sounders (both interior and exterior) and the system’s detection devices. No alarm reports are sent to the Central Station unless a 24-hour zone is faulted (e.g.: panic, fire duress). Contact your Central Station before you test your fire protection system because an alarm report may be transmitted.
To test individual detection devices, simply activate sensors and open protected doors and windows one-at-a-time. As detection devices are faulted, the Command Center display panel indicates the faulted zone. This verifies that the detection device is working properly.
To use COMMAND 44:
1. Ensure that the security system is disarmed. 2. Press the COMMAND bar. The Command Mode indicator light comes on. 3. Press the 4 key twice. Audible devices (both interior and exterior) sound. To silence the audible warning, press any numeric key of the Command Center keypad. 4. After silencing the audible devices, you may test detection devices. Open a door or a window, or activate a motion sensor. The Command Center display panel indicates the zone which you have faulted. This verifies that individual devices are working properly. 5. To end the Local System Test simply press any numeric key on the Command Center.

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
