Bosch Keypad instructions D1255

Security Keypad

D1255 Keypad from Bosch. Radionics is the old name and they were bought by Bosch years ago.

Training for managers – Have your account number and password ready for the dispatchers. The D1255 Keypad allows you to use CMD commands as well that are shortcuts when they are programmed or turned on. An example of this is CMD 47 (Reset) The Bosch systems can be programmed in many ways so the following is a general instruction sheet. Your system can be customized to turn functions on or off in the keypad menu. Also the new D1260 keypad which is the ATM style has buttons on the sides to take you to where you want to go faster and it has the users manuals built into it with a large screen. It does draw more mA current to operate so a new power supply may need to be added if you do more than one. The D1256 Keypad is a Fire keypad and has very few buttons so employees can view, silence and reset alarms. The D1265 is the new virtual keypad with a touch screen. You may want to simplify these instructions and post them or put them in a procedure notebook. You can also get the instruction sheets off of www.boschsecurity.us for each product.

1. Secure all points on system such as closing doors and verify that no balloons or moving displays are in areas with motion detectors then ARM system by TYPING IN YOUR CODE and pressing enter. Even hanging signs can set the system into alarm.

2. Disarming is also done by TYPING IN YOUR CODE and pressing enter. Normally this should be done in the first 30 or 60 seconds whatever your delay time is. Make sure you enter in the door that has a delay programmed.

3. For other functions press MENU then scroll using NEXT and PREV, once you get to a menu item you would like to use press ENTER then the keypad may or may not ask you for your code, if it does enter your code and then press ENTER.

4. If the system will not arm up then press the NEXT button and note the message, press the NEXT button again and note all the messages. This will tell you the faulted points and problems.

5. In order to clear the Keypad memory buffer simply enter your code and then press the ESC button and it will clear old events that have restored.

6. Bypassing and Un-bypassing can be done using the instructions on #3, when you get to bypass or unbypass it will ask you for your code and then the point number you want to bypass or unbypass. If you don’t know the point number just press NEXT and the keypad will take you through the available choices. There are limits as to the amount of points you can bypass.

7. If an employee gives his or her code to another employee for even a day then that code should be deleted and another one added for that person so it does not stay compromised. Avoid codes such as 2468 or 1234 or 3333 or even date codes such as 1976 or 1985 since these are too easy to guess. Even using the last 4 of your employees social security numbers is not recommended. We recommend changing codes periodically as well as changing the main store password.

8. The sheet where you keep your codes should be kept locked up and it is best if only one or two people have access to that information. Our dispatchers have access to your password but they will never ask you for your code and they do not have access to your codes.

9. If a panic switch is depressed it will not restore until it is reset. Some switches simply need to be pulled back out and others need a reset key and others need to be taken apart to be reset.

10. If a door contact is damaged it can be bypassed until repairs are made. Please send us notification of the problem in writing by email or fax and confirm that we have scheduled a date to come out and service the issue.

11. Other important information: This panel can autoarm at several different times. This panel can have multiple areas and multiple keypads so you can arm and disarm a cashroom each time you go into it etc….Please ask us about additional options that are available.
