Alarm Control is used to control the alarm generator. This concerns programmed alarms that can be used if a control output should toggle in accordance with the actual alarm.


  • Drag-and-drop Alarm Control to::

Amplifier > Control Inputs > CI_1-CI_6 > on_action/off_action


Access Panels > Programmable Keys > p1-px > press_action/release_action

Alarm Control - Settings

The Alarm source that should be controlled.

Start, Stop or Toggle the Alarm.

Zones in which the Alarm will be broadcast. Alarm broadcasts usually go to all zones. This field can be left blank if access panel keys are used for zone selection.

In this example for General Alarm, the priority should be set high, with only Emergency PA as a higher priority in the system. The highest priority is 1 and the lowest is 100.
Default Priority = 10.

This is used together with dynamic zone selection to ensure that some critical zones are always part of the audio activity regardless of zone selection.

  • Auto Select selected - the call will start regardless if a zone selection button is pressed or not.

On Busy
When one or more destination zones are busy with higher priority broadcasts, the following options are available:

Reject - Reject the broadcast
Go Partial - Run the broadcast now on free zones
Queue - Put the broadcast in queue and run when all zones are free

If no value is chosen, a default value is used.

  • For input actions Program Activation, Message, the default value is Go Partial.
  • For input action Live Speech, the default value is Reject.

On Interrupt
When a broadcast is interrupted by a higher priority broadcast, the following options are available:

Cancel - Cancel the broadcast
Mute - Mute the broadcast in interrupted zones while a higher priority broadcast is running
Mute All - Mute the broadcast in all zones when interrupted
  • For input actions such as Program Activation, Message, Live Speech, the default value is Mute.
