The control panel features programmable area partitioning. That is, the system may be divided into up to two discrete multiple-zone areas, each allowing access by only those users programmed for their respective area.

Opening Suppression and Closing Suppression, available through Napco Quickloader software, suppress reporting within programmed “windows”. Conversely, Exception Reporting can transmit a “fail to close” if the panel is not armed within programmed intervals and, similarly, a “fail to open” if the panel is not disarmed within programmed intervals. Furthermore, the panel can be programmed to automatically arm either area at any time. A log containing up to 800 events (accessible through Quickloader™ software) monitors control-panel activity referenced to a precision real-time clock. A detailed event history may be displayed at the computer, using Napco’s PCD3000 Quickloader Software.

Keypads feature a liquid-crystal display for messages. In normal use, the LCD shows zone identification and status messages. Conventional LEDs and a sounder are also provided for annunciation.

Data may be quickly and easily downloaded to the control panel using a PC-compatible computer with Napco's PCD3000 Quickloader software and PCI2000 computer interface. Or, the panel may be programmed using the keypad in its secondary mode of operation. In the keypad programming modes (there are two: Dealer and User), the LCD shows memory address, data values, programming prompts, and the alphanumeric characters required for entering up to 32 user codes and custom zone descriptions.

The “Mercantile” version is supplied with a heavy-duty enclosure for increased tamper resistance and a tamper switch for tamper protection.
