Question

How can I arm the system with an entry or exit delay?

Answer

First, set the Delay switch on the Handheld Remote to MAX. You cannot use the Keychain Remotes to arm the system in Delay Mode. You can arm the system without using a Remote by pressing the ARM button on the Console. Arming this way will ALWAYS arm the system in the Delay mode.Press ARM on the remote. Lamps connected to Modules set to the same House Code and Unit Code as the Console turn on. The console chimes for 1 minute while you leave the house. Then you hear a beep signifying that the system is armed, and the lamps(s) turn off.

If you open a door (that has its sensor set to MAX), the console gives a pre-alarm beep, and lamps connected to modules set to the same House Code and Unit Code as the Console turn on. After a delay of approximately 30 seconds the alarm sounds, Lamp and Wall Switch Modules flash, and the automatic dialer calls the first telephone number and plays back the recorded message.
