DSC 832 System Open Front Door error

Hi. I can't arm the system because of this error. When I look around the front door, I don't see the circular sensor I see in the frame of other doors. Where would the sensor be? I don't think it is a wireless sensor either. Very old system that came with an even older house.

Would appreciate any help to resolve this. A d how do I bypass this zone for the time being to arm the overall system?

Is this a recent issue, or has this door never shown as closed?

Look carefully around the door frame, including the hinge side. If the contact has been in place for a long time, it could easily be under layers of paint.

To bypass a zone:
1. Enter [✱] [1] (access code if required).
2. The keypad will flash the ĎBypassí light and turn on the zone lights for any zones already bypassed.
3. Enter the 2 digit zone number to bypass the zone.
4. The keypad will turn on the zone light.
5. Press [#].
All zones that were lit when the [#] key was pressed are now bypassed. The ĎBypassí light will be on steady to
indicate zones are bypassed.
