L3000 and 5811

Hello,

I would like to set-up an entry/exit door to only arm with away and not with stay. Is this possible?

Thanks,

Jim

It always helps to describe what you're trying to do. If you want to be able to use the back patio door (for instance) while Armed in Stay mode, that's simple: Program that door as Zone Type 10, "Interior Delay" zone in *56 Zone Programming.

If you want to be able to use your usual entry and exit doors (front door and/or door to garage) while Armed in Stay, that gets trickier. When you Arm in Away, the system needs to see a Zone Type 1 or 2 door open and close after Arming, or it will revert back to Stay Mode.

Thanks for the reply.

Sorry, I will attempt to describe my situation in more detail.

The garage entry door to the house has a 5811 on it. This is the door we use to enter and exit our house. I would like this to be armed when AWAY and unarmed with STAY.

Our entire perimeter (windows and door) have 5811s and we keep these armed during the day.

At night and when we leave the house we arm AWAY which adds the motion detectors and I would like to have the garage entry door armed as well.

Thanks for any info you can provide.

It sounds like what you are trying to do is bypass that door when you are arming in stay mode.

You can simply bypass the zone when you arm, that's really the only way to do this with the system you have. See page 21 of the user manual. http://www.alarmhow.net/manuals/Adem...r%20Manual.pdf

Thanks for the reply.

I previously saw this option but was hoping for something that didn't require me to complete each time. Was looking for something that was automatic/pre-programmed.

These simple little all-in-one wireless units don't have a lot of extras. Larger systems, like the Vista 20p, have a means to program macros, but as you can see from the manual, that' option doesn't exist for your system.

Well, it looks like I may have solved my own problem/situation.

I enrolled the garage entry door 5811 as a zone type #10 Interior with delay. I set the wireless keypad by the door to 30s exit delay, set the panel #34 exit delay time to 30s, and set the panel #35 entry delay time to 30s.

When armed in STAY the garage entry door is bypassed automatically and does not alarm when entered/exited, while the rest of the doors and windows are active.

When armed in AWAY the garage entry door is active with a 30s delay for exit and a 30s delay for entry.

As far as I can tell it is working exactly as I wanted.

Kind of an unorthodox solution, but it will work. The only function that you lose for that door is the chime feature, but since it's house to garage, it shouldn't be an issue.

Never used the chime prior, so it's not a loss.

Works exactly as I wanted, so that's a win.

Thanks again.
