DSC1832 Stay arms as away

Hi All

Just moved into new house and installed new DSC1832 with wirelss keypad. So far just have 3 wireless door sensors. All working OK

Only issue I have is when I alarm Stay (press button on keypad) it arms away.

can anyone tell me where I should be looking?

I haven't change the function of any buttons on the keypad.

TIA

Mark

Do you have any motion detectors in the house? If there are none programmed then it doesn't make any difference to the system and it will always arm as away.

It's an automatic function intended to prevent arming the system with active motions without leaving. While it _can_ be disabled in the programming; it doesn't hurt anything if you have no zones programmed as "stay/away" zone types.

Thanks guys

Don;t currently have any motion sensors hooked up, but I DO want to distinguish home and away. I have the alarm integrated with my home automation system and want it to do different things based on whether it's armed home, away, night.

Can I configure a PIR and just put a resistor across the contacts until i get the PIR installed (in middle of rewiring)? If not, will just put PIR inside panel's case.

Thanks

Yes you can even use a jumper wire if you program the zone NC. But the system only knows what you tell it is there. So program as interior 05 or 06 and should work fine for what you want until you actually wire the motion.
