*9 Stay Arming interaction with Audible Exit Fault
« on: January 30, 2019, 12:16:29 PM »
I use the *9 method (STAY with No Entrance Delay) of securing my house at night. I want all of my doors to have Instant Alarm functionality while I sleep. I also have First System Option [013] Opt. 6 enabled (Audible Exit Fault) to alert me if I've botched my exit. The reference manual for my DSC 1864 has a note in the "Audible Exit Fault is Disabled" explanation block that states, "Note: For
  • [9] arming, if Audible Exit Fault is enabled a violated zone will begin entry delay as per Audible Exit Fault functionality. If this option is disabled, a violated delay zone at the end of the exit delay will cause an instant alarm.'


What does this note mean? Have I inadvertently put an entry delay back onto my entry delay door, or is this just referring to the 4 second window after the expiration of the exit delay that the Audible Exit Fault is active? If push comes to shove, I'd rather have the *9 function than the Audible Exit Fault function.

Thanks for the help.

The audible entrance delay will allow you to disarm and correct the issue prior to the siren triggering.  If it arms correctly without the Exit Fault triggering, then the system will arm as desired.

Audible Exit Fault is primarily designed for someone who took a bit too long to exit such as forgetting your keys or your cell phone and run back to grab it without disarming and rearming.

I always, always disable audible exit fault.  Not only is it annoying (I had an outside siren and made that mistake one morning), but it's also a common cause of service calls for "my alarm went off and nobody called me".
