What is the meaning of "Siren Tracking"?

In the back of the manual, where it lists response codes for configuring the outputs, there is a column "Siren Tracking"... I searched the manual but couldn't find a real description of what that means, any ideas? I want to configure the outputs as typical interior and exterior siren outputs, so am curious if I need it or not (or under what circumstances I might want it).

Oops, it's a Concord 4, forgot that I wasn't posting in a Concord-specific subforum

Finally figured this out... The manual does describe the behavior, but calls it "siren Pattern". basically it means whether that output will be continuously on, or will pulse with a coded signal: continuous for police, 3 beeps for fire, and rapid beeps for aux. Seems you'd want it on, if you want your sirens tone to indicate the type of alarm. But if the siren expects a continuous power signal, leave it off.
