Omni AC Power Failures not Reported to the Central Station

AC Fail does not report to Central Station and no dial out. Will dial out for other alarms but not AC Fail. Does show in event log as AC Fail.

Check AC Fail Report Time is not set to 0 in DCM

AC failures are detected and reported on the consoles after 3 minutes, so a report time of 1 minute would dial the central station 4 minutes (3 + 1) after the actual power failure. The default value of 60 minutes means that the central station will not be notified unless the power failure lasts for 63 minutes.

Check DCM Type, ONLY Contact ID will dialout and report AC Fail to Central Station .
