Veritas alarm programming options

As part of the installation process, you need to decide how you want your Veritas alarm system programmed, whether you just require *standard* programming (which covers 80% of scenarios) or whether you want something more *advanced*.  N.B. advanced programming is an additional cost, linked to the extra programming time required.

As a top level guide, the Veritas alarm has the capability to create up to 4 part sets and have 7 different user codes.


  • - Full set: sets all sensors in property

  • - Part set 1 - night set: only setting sensors downstairs, not upstairs

  • - Code x1: single code for setting / unsetting alarm

  • - Chime function: option for ‘chime sounder’ when door opens

  • - Single area: all sensors in property counted as ‘1 area'


  • - Part set 2 – garage only for instance

  • - Part set 3 – perimeter protection only whilst moving round property.

  • - Multiple codes (up to 3) inc with zone limitation (e.g. cleaner with only access to certain rooms)

Example uses for part sets, areas & codes

> Night set

Part set alarm for use at night, only arming sensors downstairs, allowing full use of property upstairs but protecting downstairs.  Good for regularly setting alarm at night.

> Perimeter set

Part set alarm so that only sensors on doors / windows are armed - so that the owner can walk around the property internally, but have key entry / exit points armed.  Good for vulnerable people alone at home in evening.

> Delivery driver set

Specific user-code that part sets alarm so that alarm is unset in a single room (e.g. utility room), giving access to room by a 3rd party (e.g. a delivery driver) but arming all other areas of the property.

> Cleaner set

Specific user-code that part sets alarm to give access to *most* parts of the house, but arms specific high-security / private areas e.g. owner’s study and bedroom.

> Workman set

Similar to cleaner code, but provides access to different parts of the house (e.g. ground level access only, forbidding access to the 1st floor bedrooms).

> Dog at home set

Part set alarm so that certain areas on omitted where you dog has access.

> Garage only set

Garage set-up as a specific ‘area’ meaning that the user can unset the alarm in the main property but keep the alarm in the garage armed.  Good for larger properties which have separate out-buildings (e.g. a garage) which have high-value items stored.
