Night Zone in DSC Impassa

Zone type in Impassa is 1 for armed in both stay and away mode, zone type is 5 for armed in away mode and not in stay mode, what is the zone type for PIR motion for arming in night and away mode but unarmed in stay mode?

That would be still zone type 5. To reactivate it when arming in stay mode, you use the *1 command. Zone type 37 (Night zones) are exempt from this function.

I am still not clear on this, so do I program the PIRs that have to be active in night mode as zone type 37 and leave the ones that are not active as zone type 5 or did I get that backwards.

The *1 command _activates_ stay/away zones that would normally bypass in stay mode. Zone type 37 works like a stay/away zone and bypasses in stay mode, but is _not_ activated by *1.

Thanks for clarifying, it helps a lot to understand how it works, wish the technician who installed it took some type to explain
