Ademco - 6321
ITI - 4321 or 63211

Power down (disconnect battery), power up, press * and # simultaneously, then follow the installer's guide to READ the installer code. (press #,2,0 - I think!)

A) Press both [*] and [#] at the same time within 50 seconds after power is applied
to the control,
B) After power-up, enter [Installer code (4-1-1-2)] + 8 0 0 (long beep indicates one
of the partitions is armed and system cannot enter program mode).
(method B is disabled if you exit the program mode using *98)

You have it right. Power down again, and press * & #. It should get you in, unless you locked it out via the downloader. The first field 20 is the master code. Press #20, it will display the mastercode. Press *20 to enter the new code. Press *99 to exit programming.

Prevent installer code reentry :

Press *98. Exits Programming Mode and prevents re-entry by:
Installer Code + [8] + [0] + [0]. To enter the programming mode if * 98 was
used to exit, you must first power the system down. Then power up again,
and press [*] and [#] at the same time, within 50 seconds of powering up.

Allow installer code reentry:

 Press *99. Exits Programming Mode and allows re-entry by:
Installer Code + [ 8] + [0] + [0] or by: Pressing [*] and [#] at the same time,
within 50 seconds of power-up.

Turn on all lights in case of alarm.
There is a random time function for turning on lights - again outside, maybe inside too...yes?
Can we control the heating from schedule trigger?
Can we control from a phone? yes?
Can we trigger a chime from a motion detector?

Landscape Bulbs

GE 4414 Emergency 18 watt PAR 36 @ (sylvania 30965)

Have tried replacement with Sylvania 36PAR36/cap/wfl32 12V (55091) which has a lifetime of 4000 (vs. 300 hours), but may not handle the weather particularly well. (At 6 hours/night, that's only 50 days vs. 666 days.) We'll see!
