    I have a question regarding reporting formats (3x1, 4x1, Standard 3x1,
    standard 4x1, partial extended 3x1, partial extended 4x1, including a few
    ADEMCO formats). My home security system is capable of supporting any of
    these reporting formats. For a few of the programming questions, it requires
    entry of a number/letter to invoke the function being activated. In this
    case I need to know what to program the system to enable auto test signal
    sent to the monitoring receiver (the programming manual does not provide a
    list of options for all questions). Since my system is currently set to a
    standard 3x1 reporting format (which means that it can only send 15 event
    codes to the monitoring receiver), I need to know which event code to
    program in my system to support a system test.

    Any advice would be appreciated regarding where I can find a list of the
    event codes for reporting formats above.

    Thanks, Darol

    You can make up the event codes yourself and make sure the CS has the
    list. Or you can ask the CS what their 'default' is.

    You should really not use 3x1 if your panel can report in Contact ID,
    SIA, or even 4x2.

    I'm surprised you even have a three digit acct. #.

    What panel do you have?

    Thanks for the response. I have a FBII XL-2T panel. You are correct
    regarding the 3x1 format, and yes I do have a 3 digit account number. My
    interest was to determine which reporting codes are already used by the
    panel, and select another unused code for the panel test. I figured a
    "standard" already exists for the different reporting formats. I was just
    seeking that "standard"

    Thanks, Darol

    The "standard" is Contact ID, which your panel supports. I suggest
    you use that format. If your CS tells you they don't support it, find
    someone else to monitor it.
