For proper intrusion coverage, sensors should be located at every possible point of entry to a home or commercial premises. This would include any skylights that may be present, and the upper windows in a multi-level building. In addition, we recommend that radio backup be used in a security system so that alarm signals can still be sent to the Central Monitoring Station in the event that the telephone lines are out of order (alarm signals are normally sent over the phone lines).
Early warning fire detection is important in a home. Smoke and heat detectors have played a key role in reducing fire deaths in the United States. With regard to the number and placement of smoke/heat detectors, we subscribe to the recommendations contained in the National Fire Protection Association's National Fire Alarm Code (NFPA 72). These recommendations can be found on page 43 of this manual.


This manual is a step-by-step guide that will acquaint you with the system's features and benefits. It defines the components and their functions, describes their operation, and provides clear step-by-step instructions for normal and emergency procedures. Keep this manual in a convenient place so that you can refer to it as necessary.

Congratulations on your ownership of a First Alert Professional Security System. You've made a wise decision in choosing it, for it represents the latest in security protection technology today. This system provides: Three forms of protection: burglary, fire* and emergency At least one keypad which provides control of system and displays system status Various sensors for perimeter and interior burglary protection Smoke or combustion detectors* designed to provide early warning in case of fire. Your system may also have been programmed to automatically send alarm or status messages over the phone lines to a Central Monitoring Station. * Commercial installations and some residential systems may not include fire protection check with your installer. NOTE: The features and procedures described in this manual apply to both the FA168C and FA148CP security systems. Differences are noted where applicable.


Burglary Protection Several modes of burglary protection: Stay, Night-Stay, Away, Instant, Maximum. STAY: arms perimeter zones only and entry delay is on INSTANT: same as STAY, except entry delay is off NIGHT-STAY: arms perimeter zones and selected interior zones; entry delay on AWAY: arms perimeter and all interior zones, entry delay is on MAXIMUM: same as AWAY, except entry delay is off You can BYPASS selected zones while leaving the rest of the system armed. CHIME mode alerts you to the opening of protected doors and windows while the system is disarmed. Fire Protection Fire protection is always active (if installed) and an alarm sounds if a fire condition is detected If necessary, you can manually initiate a fire alarm using the keypad (if programmed). Refer to the Fire Alarm System section for information regarding fire protection, smoke detectors and planning emergency exit routes. Security Codes You were assigned a 4-digit security code during system installation. Use your security code when arming and disarming the system, and when performing other system functions. Other users can be assigned different security codes, each with different authority levels, which define the system functions a particular user can perform.
Zones and Partitions The system sensing devices have been assigned to various zones, which are specific areas of protection (e.g., front door, kitchen window, etc.). Zone numbers are displayed at the keypad when an alarm or trouble condition occurs on a sensor. Partitions (FA168C) provide two independent areas of protection, with each partition containing a group of zones that can be armed and disarmed without affecting other zones or users. Partitioned systems (FA168C) can include a common zone area, which is an area shared by users of both partitions (such as a lobby in a building). Arming, Step-Arming and Disarming Burglary Protection The system must be armed before the burglary protection can sense intrusions. To arm your system, enter your user code followed by the desired arming key. If programmed, the [#] key can be pressed instead of entering the security code when arming the system. You can also use the step-arming key, if programmed, to arm the system, which lets you use a function key to arm the system in one of three modes by simply pressing the key repeatedly. To disarm the system, enter your user code then press the [OFF] key. Alarms When an alarm occurs, both the keypad and external sounders will sound, and the keypad will display the zone(s) causing the alarm. If your system is connected to a Central Monitoring Station, an alarm message will also be sent. To stop the alarm sounding, simply disarm the system. Memory of Alarm When an alarm condition occurs, the keypad displays the number(s) of the zone(s) that caused the problem, and displays the type of alarm. The message remains displayed even after disarming the system, but can be cleared with another off sequence.










AWAY: STAY: All burglary zones, interior and perimeter, are armed. Perimeter burglary zones, such as protected windows and doors, are armed. Entry delay is turned off: Lit with STAY = Instant mode Lit with AWAY = Maximum mode






This appears when one or more burglary protection zones have been bypassed. Appears when burglary portion of the system is not ready for arming (due to open protection zones). The system is ready to arm when this message disappears and the READY indicator light comes on. Appears when AC power has been cut off. System is operating on backup battery power. Appears when AC power is present. Appears when the CHIME feature is activated. Low battery condition in a wireless sensor (if zone number displayed) or low system battery (if no zone number displayed). Appears when an intrusion has been detected and the system is armed (also appears during a fire alarm or audible emergency alarm). Accompanied by the protection zone in alarm. Appears when a malfunction is discovered in the system at any time or if an open is detected in a FIRE zone at any time or a fault in a DAY/NIGHT burglary zone during a disarmed period. Accompanied by a display of zone number in trouble. Appears when a fire alarm is present. Accompanied by a display of the zone in alarm. A FIRE display also appears when a fire alarm is manually activated, accompanied by a display of emergency key zone number programmed for fire.

(Keypad shown without swing-down front door)
(Keypads shown with typical function key labels) IMPORTANT! When entering codes and commands, sequential key depressions must be made within 4-5 seconds of one another. If 4-5 seconds elapse without a key depression, the entry will be aborted and must be repeated from its beginning. Be sure to observe this precaution when performing any of the procedures in this manual. If you make a mistake while entering a security code, stop, press the [] key, and then start over. If you stop in the middle while entering a code, and then immediately start the entry over, an erroneous code might be entered.




The OFF key is used to disarm the system, silence alarm and trouble sounds, and clear alarm memories.
IMPORTANT: If you return and the main burglary sounder is on, DO NOT ENTER, but CONTACT THE POLICE from a nearby safe location. If you return after an alarm has occurred and the main sounder has shut itself off, the keypad will beep rapidly upon your entering, indicating that an alarm has occurred during your absence. LEAVE AT ONCE, and CONTACT THE POLICE from a nearby safe location.

(Security Code)

The READY indicator light will be lit if all zones are secure, and the keypad will emit a single tone to confirm that the system is disarmed.
2. To Silence a Burglary Alarm and Clear a Memory of Alarm Enter your security code and press the OFF key to silence the alarm (or warning tones of a Memory of Alarm). Note the zone in alarm on the keypad display, and make that zone intact (close door, window, etc.). Now enter the security code plus OFF sequence again to clear the keypads Memory of Alarm display. 3. To Silence a Fire Alarm and Clear Memory of Alarm Simply press the OFF key to silence the alarm. Then enter the security code plus OFF sequence to clear the keypad's Memory of Alarm display. See the Fire Alarm System section.


Use this key when you want to arm your system with one or more zones intentionally unprotected.
Vent Zones: Your system may have certain windows set as vent zones, which are automatically bypassed if left open when arming the system (you do not need to manually bypass them). However, if a vent zone window is closed after arming, it becomes protected and will cause an alarm if opened again while the system is armed. When bypassing zones: The system must be disarmed before you can bypass zones. Bypassed zones are unprotected and will not cause an alarm if violated. The system will not allow fire zones to be bypassed. Zones are automatically unbypassed when the system is disarmed. 1.

Your installer assigned a master code that is used to perform all system functions. In addition, you can assign different security codes for use by other users (FA168C provides 46 additional codes; FA148CP provides 30 additional codes). Only the System Master and Partition Master can assign user codes to users. Users are identified by 2-digit user numbers and are pre-assigned to either partition 1 or partition 2 (FA168C). Only the Installer or System Master can change user partitions. In addition to a security code, each user is assigned various system attributes. User codes can be used interchangeably within a partition when performing system functions (a system armed with one user's code can be disarmed by another user's code), with the exception of the guest code described below. User code programming involves these steps: 1. Choose a user number from the set of users assigned to the partition in which the user will be operating, and assign a 4-digit security code. 2. Assign an authority level to that user. 3. Assign other attributes as necessary (see attributes on the next page). NOTE: The factory settings are designed to meet most normal user situations. Therefore, the only step you usually need to do when adding users is assign a user number (from the partitions pre-assigned user numbers) and a security code.
Authority levels define the system functions a particular user can/cannot perform.

Reserved for user 02; Can perform all system functions and assign codes in both partitions; can change its own code as follows: Master code + [8] + 02 + new master code + new master code again Can only perform security functions in assigned partition. Cannot perform other system functions. Can only arm the system. Cannot disarm or do other functions. Can arm the system in assigned partitions, but cannot disarm the system unless the system was armed with this code. This code is typically assigned to someone (e.g., babysitter or cleaner) who has a need to arm/disarm the system only at certain times. The user of this code should not use the Quick Arming feature. Intended for use when you are forced to disarm or arm the system under threat. When used, the system will act normally, but can silently notify the Central Monitoring Station of your situation, if that service has been provided. (FA168C) Can do everything a standard user can do, and can assign user codes to users in their partition.

Each keypad is assigned a default partition for display purposes, and will show only that partition's information. If the user is authorized, a keypad in one partition can be used to perform system functions in the other partition by using the GOTO command. Refer to the GOTO section. If the user is authorized, that user can arm other partitions. Refer to the MultiPartition Arming section. The following table shows the relationship of the keypads in each partition when system is armed and disarmed.


Arming State Keypad Status Partition 1 Only


Arming State Disarmed Armed Keypad Status Partition 2 Only Partition 2 Only
Arming State Disarmed Disarmed Keypad Status Common Zone Only Common Zone Only Common Zone Only Common Zone Only
Condition 1 Condition 2 Condition 3 Condition 4


Disarmed Partition 1 and Common Zone Armed Armed Partition 1 Only Partition 1 Only
Disarmed Partition 2 and Disarmed Common Zone Armed Partition 2 Only Armed
When both partitions are disarmed, the keypad in each partition displays zone status for its partition only. The common zone keypad shows the status in that zone only. See Condition 1 above. When partition 1 is disarmed and partition 2 is armed, the keypad in partition 1 shows the status of partition 1 and the common zone. Partition 2 will display the status of partition 2 only. See Condition 2 above. When partition 1 is armed and partition 2 is disarmed, the keypad in partition 1 shows the status of partition 1 only. Partition 2 will display the status of partition 2 and the common zone. See Condition 3 above. As long as any one of the two partitions is disarmed, the common zone will always be disarmed. The common zone will be armed only when both partition 1 and 2 are armed. See Condition 4 above.


If the user is authorized, a keypad in one partition can be used to perform system functions in the other partition by using the GOTO command. You must use an Alpha keypad to access another partition. Keypads automatically return to their original partition after 2 minutes with no keypad activity. 1.

Silencing Low Battery Warning Tones at the Keypad
Replacing Batteries in Wireless Sensors
Wireless sensors may not have been used in your security system IMPORTANT: Use only batteries recommended by your installer as replacement.
Routine Care Treat the components of your security system as you would any other
electrical equipment. Do not slam sensor-protected doors or windows. Keep dust from accumulating on the keypad and all protective sensors, particularly on motion sensors and smoke detectors. The keypad and sensors should be cleaned carefully with a dry soft cloth. Do not spray water or any other fluid on the units.


Your fire alarm system (if installed) is on 24 hours a day, for continuous protection. In the event of an emergency, the strategically located smoke and heat detectors will sound their alarms and automatically send signals to your system, triggering a loud, interrupted pulsed sound* from the Keypad(s) and any external sounders. A FIRE message will appear at your Keypad and remain on until you silence the alarm (see below for silencing fire alarms). * Temporal pulse sounding is produced for Fire alarms, as follows: 3 pulsespause3 pulsespause3 pulsespause. , repeated.

*-6)1%78)6 &)(6331



Silencing Fire Alarms and Clearing Memory of Alarm
You can silence the alarm at any time by pressing the OFF key (the security code is not needed to silence fire alarms). To clear the display, enter your code and press the OFF key again (to clear Memory of Alarm).
2. If the Keypad's FIRE display does not clear after the second OFF sequence, smoke detectors may still be responding to smoke or heat producing objects in their vicinity. Investigate, and should this be the case, eliminate the source of heat or smoke. 3. If this does not remedy the problem, there may still be smoke in the detector. Clear it by fanning the detector for about 30 seconds. When the problem has been corrected, clear the display by entering your code and pressing the OFF key.
Smoke Detector Depending on the type of smoke detectors in your system, it may be Reset necessary to "reset" the smoke detectors after a fire alarm has been
turned off. Check with your installer. This "reset" is accomplished at a keypad, as follows: Enter User Code*, then press the [1] key (* except arm only user).

Quick Arm (if programmed) Bypass Zone(s)
Arms system in mode selected, quickly and without use of a code. Bypassed zones are unprotected and will not cause an alarm if violated. Bypasses all faulted zones automatically. Also disarms system. Memory of alarm remains until cleared. Memory of Alarm remains until cleared. Determine cause. Also silences sounders. Memory of alarm remains until cleared. Keypad beeps rapidly on entry if alarm has occurred while absent. Alarm display will remain upon disarming until cleared. Performs desired action and sends silent alarm to Central Station. See the Panic Keys section for emergency functions programmed for your system. Note: Keys A, B, and C may have been programmed for other functions. The keypad will sound if doors or windows are violated while system is disarmed and chime mode is ON.

First Alert Professional offers the finest security, fire and personal emergency protection for your home by incorporating advanced technology with simple operation.

How it works.

The FA168C is the communication center of your security system the brains. All the sensors from around your home are connected to the FA168C. When your system is armed and a sensor detects a problem, it sends a signal to the control panel that then sends a signal to the central station. To alert anyone inside the home, it can also sound a siren.

Feel at ease

Protecting vulnerable locations.
Sensors are usually placed at entry points to your home such as doors and windows, which are most vulnerable to intrusion. These include magnetic contacts and glassbreak sensors. Inside the home, Passive Infrared Detectors sense motion through body heat. Smoke and fire detectors are also protecting your home and theyre working even when the system isnt armed. Home or away, your system can react to fire emergencies at any time.


At the heart of your security system is the keypad the piece of equipment that puts control right at your fingertips. In Standard, Deluxe or Alphanumeric models, these keypads offer simple operation combined with the latest, most advanced technology.

The FA168C: Convenient, Versatile, Simple
The FA168C from First Alert Professional puts high-tech enhanced security to work in your home and convenient options right at your fingertips.
Advanced technology is at work, protecting your home 24 hours a day!
In the event of fire or intrusion, the central station is contacted via the telephone line. Its important that the line is always operating properly, so the system continually checks it for proper voltage. If the phone line is out of service, an alert will be sounded and visually displayed on the keypad. PARTITIONS The FA168C has two partitions, allowing it to function as two systems in one. This is ideal for a mother/daughter home, or if you have a professional office in your home. Partitioning gives you two completely independent areas of protection. ZONES By assigning certain devices or areas of the home to specific zones, the system can better pinpoint the exact location where an unauthorized entry occurs or where a fire may be starting. The system comes standard with 8 supervised zones that support a wide variety of alarm devices. Up to 40 expansion zones can be added depending upon the number of devices needed to properly secure your home. 40 expansion zones may be used for either hardwired or wireless devices, which is particularly helpful if you choose to take advantage of the convenience of our advanced 5800 series of wireless accessories. These zoning features allow for maximum flexibility and expansion of the system. If you decide to enlarge your home, you have a system that can grow with you, simply and easily. ACCESS The FA168C features a master code and can be programmed for up to 48 secondary user codes in each partition. The secondary user codes can be assigned to different family members, and you can have a babysitter code programmed as well as a duress code. When used to arm or disarm the system, the duress code sends a silent message to the central station. This is important should you ever come face to face with an intruder who forces you to disarm the system. By entering the duress code, you have silently summoned for help while keeping your master code private. PANIC The FA168C has three programmable panic keys that can be used at the keypad or with wireless devices. They can be programmed for 24 hour silent, audible, personal or fire emergencies. One touch of a panic key and help is on the way.

POWER The FA168C comes with a battery back-up which meets standard UL requirements. In the event of a power outage, this allows for uninterrupted system operation, keeping your home and family secure. In the event of a power failure the power indicator on the keypad will be off, indicating that the system is operating on battery power. CONVENIENCE With this system, youve got it! The FA168C can be set up so that if you want to operate the garage door, unlock entryways, or control lights or appliances, you can do so through your keypad or choose from a variety of wireless remote devices. With wireless remotes, arm your system with just the press of a button. Or, arming your system can be as easy as 1, 2! "Quick Arm" allows you to just press the "#" key and "arm" rather than your code and thats it your system is armed! Its a simple and quick way to leave your home and still arm your system. The FA168C has a paging feature available which will send signals to your pager to alert you about certain system conditions. The pager would display a code number that corresponds to a specific system condition, alerting you immediately if, for example, your home was experiencing a break in. The paging feature is especially helpful if you have latch-key children. The system can be programmed so that when youre at work, the pager will notify you when your son or daughter arrives home from school because they have been assigned their own user codes. The FA168C can also page you if your child has not arrived home by a pre-programmed time. PREVENT FALSE ALARMSThe FA168C has features that can help you prevent false alarms which are recommended by the Security Industry Association (SIA). After all, you want to avoid unnecessary visits from the police and fire departments. Consider these scenarios. Have you ever run out the door, forgot something, and had to rush back inside? With this system, you can re-enter your home within a pre-programmed amount of time and you dont have to worry about setting off the alarm. Or, youre getting ready to leave the house, youve set the alarm by pressing the "AWAY" button, but you havent left within the time allowed what happens? This system is so smart it knows you havent left yet, goes back into STAY mode, and avoids setting off a false alarm!
