User manual for ADE Optima Compact alarm system

Recommended Posts

Please can you advise how to download or order a user manual for an ADE Optima Compact of unknown generation.  I have looked everywhere on the internet and Honeywell's site with no luck.  I have attached picture.

I have already looked at manuals for g3 and g4, they do not match the buttons or work.  I will look at the g2 download when I am allowed to.

What you want to do on it?

Hi Al yeti


This is not the manual for mine and the buttons do not correspond and I don't have a screen.  I have a ADE Optima Compact as in picture supplied.  I do not want to start pressing buttons I think correspond and causing a problem I then do not know how to get out of with a siren blaring or my code no longer working.

Hi I can still not download the g2 file, it gives and error code and says I am not allowed. I am logged in as myself. Do you know how to resolve this.

Well the compact was the same as the late accenta 8 as far as I know and you must have a duff panel


The panel works fine as do all the keys.  I need the correct user instructions for it, is all.

I figured it out, using bits of the manual instructions. Thanks for your efforts.

Hi Declan, I'm searching in exactly the same way you did!  I have the exact same ADE Optima Compact alarm, same panel.  I have the 4-digit code but no real idea what I'm doing.  The only information I could find is this link - https://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Technical/DataSheets/Ade/ACCENTA6_8_User.pdf

Is this what helped you in the end or do you have another link?  Thanks in advance
