3. Press the left or right arrows to select Sensor Type, then press the down arrow.

  • Note: When you arm your panel, (01) sets an entry/exit delay of 30 seconds, and (02) sets an entry/exit delay of 45 seconds. (01) and (02) should be used for doors. (03) Perimeter should be used if the sensor is set to a window.


4. If 04, 06, 07, 08, 10, or 23 were selected above, enter Equipment Type, then press the down arrow.

6. Enter the sensor serial number. To auto-learn the sensor, press Shift then Learn, then activate the sensor.

  • Note: If you choose to add wirelessly without entering the serial number, ensure the battery pull tab is removed and that the sensor is in a closed state. Press shift on the panel, then press learn. Open the sensor by opening your door or window, then return it to a closed state. Your panel will display your sensor's information if it was recognized. You can press ok to continue.
