Your installation company uses this special code to install and initially
program your system. It can also be used to arm and disarm your system,
both from the touchpads and from the central station (by telephone lines). If you do not want the installation company to have access to your system
once it has been installed, ask the installer for the installation code and
instructions for changing it. Once you have changed the code, only you can
arm and disarm the system.If it becomes necessary to change the
programming of your system, you will have to give the installation company
the new code. Talk to your installer about the installation code. There are
many reasons why you might want your installation company to be able to
access your system at any time.
(Warning: Without this number, it is virtually impossible for anyone to reprogram
or reset your security system.)
Code 1 (sometimes known as the master code) enables you to change other
code numbers, and change the day and time shown on your touchpad liquid
crystal display (LCD) and optional printer. This main user code number
should be written down and stored for periodic use in a safe, secure place.
Because code 1 can activate the Walk Test mode, during which the 4720 is
temporarily prevented from responding to an actual fire alarm, code 1
cannot be used by the end user in a UL commercial fire installation. Your
installer must reprogram options and perform other tasks that require the use
of code 1.
Up to 98 primary access codes can be provided by your security system.
These primary codes are the basic keys to your security system. They can
be programmed to allow the user to arm and disarm the system, operate all
DOOR functions, and bypass system zones. Primary codes can be individually programmed with specific time windows
appropriate for each employee or user. For example, night shift workers can
be programmed for PM hours only, or part-time workers for their scheduled
work hours only.
Access codes are 3 to 6 digits in length. You must be sure that codes do not
conflict. For example, assigning a code as 543 would prevent another code
previously assigned as 5432 from working.
After entering a new access code, always remember to press the TEST
button. You can record new access code numbers on page 29.
Note: When changing codes, make sure that no code starts with the duress
trigger digits (see page 12).
- Display the code you wish to change (Steps 1-6 in Displaying Codes).
- To change the access code displayed, press CLR.
- Enter the new access code you have assigned (3 to 6 digits).
- Store the new code in memory by pressing TEST.
- Display the code you wish to delete (Steps 1-6 in Displaying Codes).
- Press CLR to clear a code from memory without assigning a new code.
- Press TEST.
The display will then show the next access code in sequence. Repeat Steps
1-3 for each additional code you wish to change.
Note: Do NOT delete your main access code.
