-  Eight Programmable User Codes and Eight Radio Remote User Codes
Users can program up to eight user codes and eight radio user codes. Only the Master Code holder can add or change other system user codes.
-  Two Areas The control panel is partitioned into two areas. Users can operate both areas from one master codepad or from multiple separate area addressable codepads.
-  Three Arming Modes Users can arm the system using one of three modes: AWAY Mode: Arms the entire system. STAY Mode 1: Arms most zones. Does not arm zones programmed as isolated (installer). STAY Mode 2: Arms most zones. Does not arm zones programmed as isolated (Master Code holder).
-  Dual-tone Multi-frequency (DTMF) Telephone Remote Arming Users can arm the system from any remote location using a DTMF telephone. Once a communication link is established between a DTMF telephone and the system, users can operate the system using the telephone in the same way as a codepad.
-  Day Alarm Day alarm monitors a group of zones when the system is disarmed. For example, the front door of a shop has a pressure mat or electronic beam that customers turn on as they enter or exit. The codepad beeps each time the mat or beam turns on.
-  Duress Alarm A codepad duress alarm can work as a silent hold-up alarm and is useful when the system reports to a monitoring station or pocket pager. Codepad Tamper Alarm Codepad tamper limits the number of times that someone can try to enter the wrong user code. When someone exceeds the limit, the system starts an alarm and sends a report to a security monitoring station.
-  End-Of-Line (EOL) Resistor Value Choice Users can choose different EOL resistor values when programming the control panel. The selected value applies to all zones at once. Users can add the control panel into an existing system without changing the EOL resistors.
-  Built-in Telephone Line Fault Monitor When the system detects a telephone line failure, it creates a telephone line fault. Users can program the system to sound an alarm if the telephone line is cut while the control panel is armed.
-  Zone Lockout The first zone to send an alarm condition is locked and a siren runs for a specified time. All other zones that send alarm conditions are reset when the sirens reset, but continue to report if another alarm condition occurs. This prevents an intruder from setting off the alarms in all zones, waiting for the sirens to stop, and then entering the site.
-  Automatic Battery Testing The system performs a battery test each time a user arms the system, and automatically every four hours. When the system detects a low capacity back-up battery, it creates a low battery fault.
-  Event Memory Recall Event Memory Recall plays the last 40 system events, including all alarms, system arming, and system disarming. If the control panel is partitioned, Event Memory Recall plays the last 10 system events.
-  Programmable Ring Burst Time Telephone ring times might be longer or shorter depending on the technology in a system. Different timing can cause control panels to answer calls that should be answered by an answering machine, fax, or a person. Users can program the control panel for the correct ring burst time. Adjust the ring time by 5 ms up to a total of 75 ms, or by 80 ms up to a total of 1200 ms. 
-  Call Forwarding The telecommunications provider must offer a call forward option. Users can program call forwarding modes to operate when the system is armed in the AWAY Mode.
-  Call Forward Modes • Immediate On: Redirects all incoming calls to another number, including mobile phone, pagers, and answering services. The telephone called first does not ring. • No Answer: Redirects all incoming calls to another number when the telephone that was called first is not answered within 20 seconds. Outgoing calls can still be made from the first telephone.
