A zone can be programmed to announce on the keypads whenever it is triggered. This is not referring to Walk test, which is a test mode in which all zones are announced when triggered.

To program a zone to announce, Assign a Response with action Say ZoneName in the Zone Response (using Response Wizard in Comfigurator)

The Zone Response is activated whenever the zone is triggered (eg door open or Movement detected). The Say Zone Name action will cause the programmed zone name to be announced

The Response can be smarter, eg it can announce only at certain times
If Hours >= 7 And Hours < 22 Then
    Say ZoneName
End If

An example file is attached
Zone 1 will will announce when open
Zone 2 will announce only from 7 AM to before 10 PM

This will announce the zone only between 8 PM and 6 AM

Comfort Responses has powerful conditional programming to allow for almost any situation

Comfigurator 3.6.x Zone Settings has an "Announce" Checkbox
When checked this zone will anounce its own name when the zone is opened

This requires Comfort firmware 7.009 and above

The action announce zone is needed only for conditional announcements
