Ademco - armed in away, shows stay after exit delay
« on: August 29, 2010, 01:30:07 PM »
I have the following:

Ademco -Vista 20p
Ademco -4219 zone extender
Ademco -6160 & 6160v keypads

When I instant alarm in AWAY. after the exit delay the keypad shows STAY.

Why?  Is there something miss programmed?

No, this is a false alarm reduction feature that most new security systems have.  If the system is armed in away mode, and an entry/exit zone is not faulted during the exit delay, it knows you didn't leave, and that you're still inside, so it reverts to stay mode.

It's all in the manual.

Thanks for the quick reply.  I have diligently studied the manual, but I missed that point.

You're not alone, judging by how often this question is asked, a great number of DIYers miss that tidbit of info.

This feature can be turned off in the programing. I had to turn it off to allow remote arming in Away with a phone module.

I always shut off this new irritating feature.  If a customer wants to have everything on when he arms it Away, autoarmstay defeats this.  I think it's a bad idea to have it.  For those few idiots who need it, I believe they should have to manually activated it instead.  Just my2c

I think you guys might want to rethink defeating this feature.   The number one cause of false dispatches of the pd is............customers!    motion detectors and people don't play well together by design!   Push for full perimeter systems, its better for the customer.  Who wants to be a prisoner in their own home, unable to go downstairs and get a glass of water without interacting with the alarm first.   Sorry if I sound "preechy" but the whole industry has to do what we can to reduce false alarms.

what happens if you arm it in away with a keyfob from outside?

Doesn't matter.  If auto stay is enabled it MUST see an entry/exit door open and close after it is armed Away or it reverts to stay mode.

I think it's field 84.
I have all the answers . . . some of them are correct.

My friend's System, Vista 20P, will default to Stay when armed Away if no one goes through the exit/entrance door.  However, if she arm the System (Away) with her KeyFob while outside the house (doors closed), it is armed as Away.  Does that mean she doesn't have the "Auto Stay" enabled? 

Is there another way to have the Vista 20P defaults to Stay, when armed Away without the "Auto Stay" being enabled?  I will check on my next visit to her house to confirm.  I'm curious, since what you said doesn't match up with the results we experience with her System.

Unless you're using an Envisalink or keyfob, I actually think it's a good idea to have the feature turned on.

First post and I am so glad to find this feature is optional...have asked many times while ADT rep at my residence and each time have been told no way around it. My scenario is my detached building. If I set away for that structure from the main house keypad via zone 2, the detached always defaults to stay as I am not present to trigger door sensor while exiting the location.

My question is this, as an ADT customer with only 3 numerical keypads on a Vista 20, can I change this field in programming with the equipment I have? Would I need to obtain at least one Alpha as discussed?  If so, how difficult would it be to swap and am I stuck without the ADT master code?

Any help is appreciated...

As a note, I'm pretty handy with electronics in general so I can take direction/suggestion and run with it  ;)

Don't hold back on the advice.

Thanks very much!!
