Helix added CP-01 compliance features in firmware version 5.11.00. The following article covers the functional changes for compliance.

  • CP-01 compliance for false alarm reduction.  Functional changes are:
    • Silent arming is no longer allowed to latch on HeliTouch or HeliPad.  Must be enabled for each arming.
    • No delay arming is no longer allowed to latch on HeliTouch or HeliPad.  Must be enabled for each arming.
    • Auto Stay Arming.  When arming to AWAY, revert arming level to STAY if no entry/exit door opens/closes during exit delay.   This is optional, but defaults to enabled.  This applies to arming from on-site devices only.  Remote arming & keyfob arming are exempt.
    • Exit Delay Restart.  Automatically restart exit delay (1 time) if an entry/exit door opens/closes then opens again during exit delay.  This is optional, but defaults to enabled.
    • Alarm Abort Annunciation.  Annunciate that an alarm report has been aborted (no alarm report sent to CS), by sounding 2 short beeps on siren 3 seconds after canceling an alarm. This is optional, but defaults to enabled.
    • Alarm Cancel Annunciation.  Annunciate that an alarm report has been canceled (an alarm cancel event sent), by sounding 3 short beeps on siren 3 seconds after canceling an alarm. This is optional but defaults to enabled.
    • Alarm Cancel Window.  An alarm cancel event will be sent when the panel is in alarm, the alarm event was reported and the alarm is canceled within the first 10 minutes.
    • Event Reporting Delay.  Alarm events will be delayed in being reported to CS by the Event Reporting Delay time (defaults to 30 seconds).   Life safety, silen tpanic and holdup events are not delayed.
    • Swinger Disable.  Zones that go into alarm multiple times within an arming cycle will be disabled when the number of alarms exceeds the programmable Swinger Threshold (defaults to 2 alarms per zone).   Zones are re-enabled by disarming.
    • Recent Close event will be reported along with the alarm event when an intrusion alarm occurs within 2 minutes of arming.
    • Exit Error event will be reported along with the alarm event when an entry/exit zone is left open at the end of exit delay.
    • Zone states are ignored for 60 seconds after power up of the panel.  This applies to power up resets only.  Zones are active immediately for all other resets.
    • When arming silent, the exit delay time is doubled (up to 255 seconds).
  • New options required for CP-01:
    • Auto Stay Arming.  Defaults to enabled.
    • Exit Delay Restart.  Defaults to enabled.
    • Alarm Abort Annunciation.  Defaults to enabled.
    • Alarm Cancel Annunciation.  Defaults to enabled.
    • Event Reporting Delay.  1-45 seconds, default =30 seconds.
    • Swinger Threshold.   1-6, default = 2.
