How to set Panic button FA1600

My wife has decided that she needs a quick panic button for the alarm. I thought I set it with *22 and then hitting 100 to set the first button series of *1 for the panic button sequence and not enabling the next two button series but it is not arming. What am I missing?

For what it's worth, a FA1600 is a Vista 100.

The default zone type setting for zone 995 (* + 1) is 00 (disabled). You have to assign it a panic zone type.

The only panic key combo that has a default zone type is [* + #] (zone type 06)

Thanks for the reply. It has been so long since I set the system up I've got to review zone types. I may be back to ask more questions.

I cannot believe I've forgotten everything I learned on setting this up. I have a siren that goes off when triggered. How do I trigger the * +1 to make the siren go on for the panic? I've enabled 995 but do not remember how to set the zone. I started hitting #93 and could not remember what any of the language meant and continued to hit 0 till I finally got out. I may have even disable something for all I know.

Ok, been reading the books again and thought I had it figured out. Went 999 for zone for the * = # buttons to make the alarm go off. Not going off when hit. Tried 07 and 09 for zone type, partition 1, report code 07, bell 1, hardwire 01? I'm going off of memory but this did not work.

Can you walk me through were I went wrong?

Oddly enough, for the Vista 100/FA1600 being the largest and most complicated of their systems; the manuals are the worst written of the lot...
