❑The Third Edition UL® 1981 Standard requires the ability to report the number of accounts that are programmed to transmit signals to each Receiver.
•The Receiver Groups Form is used to define any number of Receiver Group Names, and then assign the Receiver IDs (and the Line Card Numbers within those Receivers) as the members of each Receiver Group.
✓Data entry in the Subscriber Panels section establishes which Accounts belong to which Receiver Groups (by entering the correct Receiver and Line card information for each CSID).
✓The Receiver Distribution Report also lists each Receiver Group and identifies how many, and which, Accounts are reporting to each Receiver/Line combination based on data entered in this Subscriber Panels section of the Edit View's Monitoring tab.
•For tracking the Accounts who are being monitored for other Alarm Dealers, the Receiver Distribution Report may also be used to list (and count) how many CSIDs are on-line for each Alarm Dealer by assigning Dealer's Accounts to specific Receiver/Line combinations in the Subscriber Panels section when they are put on-line, and identifying each of the Alarm Dealer's Receiver/Line combinations in a Receiver Group created for that Alarm Dealer.
➢Note 1: Receiver/Line Card Combinations can be assigned to more than one Receiver Group so as a result of that fact, you could report the number of UL® Accounts on-line in one Receiver Group, and also report to the Alarm Dealer as to how many Accounts they have on-line within their Receiver Group.
➢Note 2: It is also important to remember that, if you manually added the TOTAL Number of Accounts that are listed, that total would be incorrect, because in this case, some Subscribers could be included in more than one Receiver Group.
