Help program DSC 1555

Recently bought a new house, with Ranger America alarm installed. No luck getting installer code from them. So I bought a new board 1555 to replace the locked out board. I have read both User and Installer manual, but have no clue. Would somebody help me to program the new board. I have LED keypad

Zone1: Doors with 30 second delay
Zone2: Motion detector with 30 second delay
Zone3: Windows
Zone4: Windows
Zone5: Windows
Zone6: Windows

Don't see any resistors connected to the old board

and also help me how to program the Stay and Away button

Appriciate your help

Ok, that's pretty straight forward.

First step: Go to program * 8 [installer code]
Go to zone 1-8 definitions: Enter 001
enter the zone definitions for your configuration, in this case: 01 05 03 03 03 03 00 00
It should automatically be ready to go to another programming section at this point.
Go to Master code: Enter 007
Enter the 4-digit code you want for the master code.
Turn off the dialer: Enter 380 and press 1 turn off option 1 and turn off the communicator. Press #.
Enter 015. Press 7 to turn off the phone line voltage monitor. Press #.
If you don't want to install the loop resistors, enter 013.
Press 1 to turn on option 1 and disable the resistor requirement.
Press #
The default delay times are 30 second entry, 120 second exit. If you want to change them, you would need to go to section 005.

If those are all of the changes you are making, press # until you go back to run mode.

If you cross reference the code above with the installer manual, especially the programming sheet section, their programming syntex will start making a little more sense.

The Stay and Away buttons are already on by default.

No, it's not intuitive.

Everythinks working fine. That save me a lot. Do you know what they ask for the second keypad? $150, and motion detector for $100. Thanks Mr Ron again, you are big helper of this forum.

One more question for you, Mr. Ron, how do I connect the motion detector to the 1555 board. I saw the motion detector has 4 wires, red-black-yellow-green. I guess red and black will go to the same connectors of keypad for the power, how about yellow and green( label on the board of motion detector as N and NC) ? which one goes to the common and zone 2?

Again, thank a lot for your help, Mr Ron

Are you adding a motion detector to an unused zone, or are you adding an additional motion to a loop that has one? The answers are slightly different.

What you are trying to create is a loop of normally closed switches (of which the relay output of the motion is one) so that if any switch in the loop opens the loop will trip.

One way or the other: It doesn't matter, really, which one goes to common and which goes to the zone imput, being that it's just a NC switch. Being an AR tech geek, I habitually connect the common terminal on the relay to common, and the NC terminal to the zone input.
