Partially Arm the Perimeter
COMMAND 8 is used to arm the perimeter of your building while the
selected portions of the perimeter remain disarmed. Perimeter zones that
are not secure (faulted) when COMMAND 8 is entered, are automatically
bypassed and are not included in the system. COMMAND 8 does not arm
the interior of your building. Exit delays are provided with this arming
command. Although this command does not send a "Closing Report" to the
Central Station, it will still send alarms.
NOTE: Bypassed zones (not armed with the system) cannot be armed
again until the system has been disarmed, the zones returned to normal, and
the system is armed again. Bypassing a zone will compromise your
protection. Enter your personal passcode, plus ENT , to cancel.
Use this command in residential systems to arm the front of your house
while the interior and the rear perimeter doors are left unarmed. This gives
you freedom of movement between the house and patio.

zones return to normal before the exit delay time expires, the system is
armed as in COMMAND 3.

personal passcode and press ENT .
