4. To view the list of points, press [ENTER] or [View untested points]. To scroll through thelist of points, use /[PREV] or /[NEXT].

5. When you fault a point (press the test button on a smoke detector for example), the keypad emits a brief tone and shows the point name.

Detector Walk Test

It is a good idea to perform a walk test on any installed motioned sensor. The video below teaches how a proper motion detector walk test can increase the effectiveness of your detector.
