SYSTEM NOT READY

If the system is not ready to be armed the READY indicator will be OFF. On LED based keypads the zone indicator lights will display the zones which are currently not ready. The condition of each zone indicator reflects what the status of each zone as follows;

For example, assume the zone 3 is not ready. Typically this might mean that a protected door or window is open.

Once the problems with each zone have been resolved the READY fight will appear and the system can be armed.

To ARM the system when the system is NOT READY one of the following actions are necessary;

- Make the zone(s) ready. Determine which zones are not ready and perform what is necessary to ready the zone(s) (example, close the door or window, etc.),or

-Bypass the one(s) not ready. Bypassing should only be performed if the zone cannot be made ready or intentionally will remain not ready. Remember. zones that are bypassed are not protected when the system is armed,
