How do I have my security console arm automatically?


If you have installed either a SH624 – Security / Home Automation Remote Control or a KR10A – Security Remote Control, you can create a macro to Arm your Security Console or your virtual armed status.

In the Macro Designer, under the Module drop-down list you will see a new entry – “Security”. When you select this you will either see 2 or 4 possible choices for macro commands. Note: for more information about creating Macros, see ‘Using Macro Events’ in the main help file.

If you only have a KR10A installed, you will not see the delayed commands. Drag these steps into your macro like you would any other macro step. If you have more than one remote installed, you can select which one you want to issue the arm command.

If you create a macro with just the Arm Console step, you can put a timer on this macro so it runs on a scheduled basis. This will arm your console automatically.
