How do I Partially Arm the Perimeter?
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.
