Part sets allow for the protection of the perimeter or a selected area of a building. The SPC allows for two part sets per area, you can define the name of this element and also how they operate.
Please note that Part sets are disabled by default on SPC systems and when a user is accessing a keypad or web page the part set options do not appear

How to configure
In order to enable the Part set options you must edit the area for which you wish to enable the options for how you wish the part set to operate, The options you have are
Turns on or off the part set option
This will apply the exit timer to the Partset A or B mode.
This will change access zones into entry/exit type zones for either Partset A or B operation. This feature is useful for a domestic installation where a Passive Infrared (PIR) sensor is located in the hallway. If the user partsets the system at night and returns downstairs during the night, he/she may unintentionally activate the PIR sensor in the hallway and trigger the alarm. By setting the partset access option, the buzzer will sound for the entry time period when the PIR sensor is activated thereby warning the user that the alarm will activate if no action is taken.
This will change the behaviour of entry/exit zones to alarm zones when in Partset A or B mode. This feature is useful for a domestic installation when the system has been set in partset mode. If the user partsets the system at night he/she may wish the alarm to activate immediately if the front or back door is opened during the night.
This will restrict the reporting of alarms in Partset Mode to local reporting only (No remote reporting).
no bells will be activated for partset A or B.
For convivence you can change the name of the Part set to anything you choose, this is set in the system options and is definable for Part Set A and B
Selecting which zones are included?
Each zone on SPC can be included in the Part Set A or B so you can arm all zones, downstairs, upstairs, perimeter the choice is yours. To do this you select if a zone is excluded from Part set A or B. This option is available in each zone
If the ‘Exclude A’ attribute on a zone is set, then an alarm will not be generated by that zone opening while the panel is in the Partset A mode. The ‘Exclude A’ attribute is valid for Alarm zone type and Entry/Exit zones only. A FULL alarm is generated if a zone with the EXCLUDE A attribute is opened while the system is in FULLSET or PARTSET B Mode (Bells - Internal and External, Strobe).
When the ‘Exclude B’ attribute is set, the zone opening will not generate an alarm while the panel is in the Partset B mode. The ‘Exclude B’ attribute is valid for Alarm zone type and E/Exit zones only. A FULL alarm is generated if a zone with the EXCLUDE B attribute is opened while the system is in FULLSET or PARTSET A Mode (Bells - Internal and External, Strobe).
