Figure 1- Controls and Indicators
The HS2TCHP Touchscreen is an interactive touch-sensitive color LCD that can be used on any PowerSeries Neo control panel. Due to the custom requirements of individual installations, some of the features described here may perform differently than described. Consult your installer for the details of your specific installation and to the User Manual for general security system information.
To ensure that your system continues to function as intended, you must test it weekly. Please refer to the “Testing your System” section in this manual. If your system does not function properly, call your installing company for service.
This system is capable of transmitting alarms, troubles and emergency information to a central station. If you initiate an alarm by mistake, immediately call the central station to prevent an unnecessary response.
Using Your System
This section provides additional information about how to use your alarm system.
When Alarm Sounds
The system can generate 3 different alarm sounds:
- Temporal/pulsed siren = Fire Alarm
- 4 beeps, 5-second pause, 4 beeps = Carbon Monoxide Alarm
- Continuous siren = Intrusion (Burglary Alarm)
Note: The priority of signals is fire alarm, carbon monoxide alarm and medical alarm, then burglary alarm.
Note: Medical alarm is silent. It only results in an alarm transmission to the monitoring station.
Intrusion (Burglary) Alarm Continuous Siren
If you are unsure of the source of the alarm, approach with caution! If the alarm was accidental, enter your Access Code to silence the alarm. Call your central station to avoid a dispatch.
If the Intrusion Alarm was Accidental
- Enter your Access Code to silence the alarm. If the code is entered within 30s (or the programmed value of the alarm transmission delay) the transmission of the alarm to the monitoring station will be canceled.
- Call your central station to avoid a dispatch.
Fire Alarm Pulsed Siren
Follow your emergency evacuation plan immediately!
If the fire alarm was accidental (e.g., burned toast, bathroom steam, etc.), enter your Access Code to silence the alarm. Call your central station to avoid a dispatch. Ask your alarm company if your system has been equipped with fire detection. To reset the detectors, see the Sensor Reset section.
Wireless Carbon Monoxide Alarm
Activation of your CO alarm indicates the presence of carbon monoxide (CO), which can be fatal. During an alarm, the red LED on the CO detector flashes rapidly and the buzzer sounds with a repeating cadence of: 4 quick beeps, 5-second pause, 4 quick beeps. Also, during an alarm, the siren connected to the control panel produces a repeating cadence of 4 quick beeps, 5-second pause, 4 quick beeps. The keypad will also provide audible and visual indication of the CO alarm.
If an Alarm Sounds:
- Operate silence button.
- Call emergency services or your fire department.
- Immediately move outdoors or to an open door/window.
Warning: Carefully review your Carbon Monoxide Installation/User Guide to determine the necessary actions required to ensure your safety and ensure that the equipment is operating correctly. Incorporate the steps outlined in the guide into your evacuation plan.
Note: Fire and CO alarms are silenced by entering a valid access code. A message “Bell Silenced” is displayed on an LCD or touch screen keypad. The message is cleared once all the Fire zones or CO zones have been restored on system.
When a trouble condition is detected, the Trouble ( ) or System indicator will turn on, and the keypad will beep every 10 seconds. Press the ( ) key to silence the beeps. Press ( ) to view the trouble condition. The Trouble ( ) or System indicator will flash. The corresponding trouble will light up.

2. To exit the function menu, press [#].
Testing Your Entire System
All smoke detectors in this installation must be tested by your smoke detector installer or dealer once a year to ensure they are functioning correctly.
Note: Should the system fail to function properly, call your installation company for service immediately.
- Prior to testing, ensure that the system is disarmed and the Ready light is on.
- Close all zones to return the system to the Ready state.
- Perform a System Test by following the steps in the “Testing Your Keypad Sounder and Siren” section.
- To test the zones, activate each detector in turn (e.g., open each door/window or walk in motion detector areas).
Note: Some features described above will not be functional unless enabled by your installer. Ask your installer which features are functional on your system.
On an HS2TCHP keypad, the following message will be displayed when each zone (detector) is activated:
“Ready to Force,” “Not Ready”. Use the zone status button to view which zones are open. The message will disappear when the zones are closed.
Note: If your system has PIR cameras enrolled, two images from each PIR camera are sent to the monitoring station during a system test.
Walk Test Mode
The installer can initiate a Walk Test mode for the system. While in Walk Test mode, the Ready, Armed, and Trouble LEDs will flash to indicate that Walk Test is active. When the system automatically terminates the Walk Test mode, it will annunciate with an audible warning (5 beeps every 10 seconds), beginning five minutes prior to the termination of the test.
