System integrity check is a function that runs the status revision of security detectors and devices before arming.
The function prevents arming the system if the window in the room is not closed, the detector body is open, or communication with one of the devices is lost. The system integrity check is part of the requirements of UK document PD 6662:2017. The document includes the requirements of the applicable European standards designed to reduce the number of false alarms and increase the security system reliability.
The function is disabled by default. It can be activated in the Ajax apps by a user with administrator rights or a PRO with the right to configure the system.
At the activation, you can specify whether to allow arming the system with malfunctions.
If arming with malfunctions is permitted. You need to confirm the action and re-activate the armed mode. For example, to arm the system in the Ajax app or press the arming button on the SpaceControl again.
SpaceControl with firmware version 3.18 and below does not require a second press to confirm arming with malfunctions.
If a system with malfunctions is armed, all users with access to the events feed will receive a notification in the Ajax app. The notification contains a list of all malfunctions. The monitoring station of the security company also receives the same notification.
If arming with malfunctions is not allowed. You cannot activate the armed mode if the system integrity is violated. For example, a window is open in the protected facility. To arm the system, you should eliminate the malfunction first.
