When in the "Max" setting on the remote, the Arm button will arm in the delay mode, the system will be armed at the end of the 60 seconds of chiming. This is also always true when arming from the console. This is a steady chime of a single tone, ding, ding, ding...but can be confused at first with the Trouble Chime.

The slow steady "Trouble Chime" the console makes when trying to Arm the system from any device while an un-bypassed window or door sensor is open has a similar cadence, but has TWO tones, a high and low, ding dong, ding dong...

The other difference between the two is you'll see a steady LED light corresponding to a number in the "zones" panel for an open window or door during the trouble chime. It will continues until the system is disarmed and bypassed, while the delay-arm chime will last only 60 seconds before the sytem arms. Be aware of the setting on your remote : min or max.
