Arming and Disarming Your Keypad

USF administers two brands of keypads, Ademco and Bosch. Both are advanced devices that offer features not available with other systems: They are highly visible, are black-lit, and have built-in sounders that alert individuals to events.

Arming Your Ademco Keypad

Arming and Disarming an Ademco Keypad

To arm your Ademco keypad (or to turn your system on):

  • Make sure that all doors and windows are shut and there is no motion in the alarmed area
  • Enter your 4-digit passcode and press 2 (or AWAY)
  • The keypad will beep twice and display the exit message, indicating that you have 60 seconds to leave

To disarm your Ademco keypad (or turn your system off):

  • Enter your 4-digit passcode and press 1 (or OFF)
  • The keypad will beep once and display the disarmed message

Arming Your Bosch Keypad

Arming and Disarming a Bosch Keypad

To arm your Bosch keypad (or to turn your system on):

  • Make sure that all doors and windows are shut and there is no motion in the alarmed area
  • Enter your 6-digit passcode and press ENT
  • The keypad will briefly display the exit message and a delay tone will begin, indicating that you have 60 seconds to leave

To disarm your Bosch Keypad (or to turn your system off):

  • Enter your 6-digit passcode and press ENT (you have 8 seconds to enter your code)
  • The keypad will then display the disarmed message

When either the Ademco or Bosch system is turned on, if you fail to disarm the system before the entry-delay time expires, you will cause an alarm. If this happens, silence the alarm by disarming it; then call Public Safety at 415-422-4201, to notify them that you are not in an emergency situation.
