How to Change an Access Code

Access codes

There are three types of access codes:

Master code               The master code is your most powerful code and can be used for all user operations including programming.

User codes 1 to 8     There are eight user codes, which can be used for many user operations, but not programming, or bypassing sensors.  A user code can be deleted by pressing Disarm while the code is being changed.

Duress code                The duress code, when used in place of another user code, generates a silent duress alarm that is reported to the central monitoring station. The duress code can be deleted by pressing Disarm while the code is being changed
