To bypass a sensor means to deactivate a security sensor (or zone) on your security system. If someone enters a bypassed area, the alarm will not sound off. You can still arm and secure your system in other areas.
There are a number of reasons to use the bypass function. You may want to leave a specific door or window open. It can also be useful when a sensor is not working (i.e., low battery). You could still arm the rest of your system until a technician can come fix the malfunctioning sensor.
To bypass a sensor:
- Press System Disarmed.
- Press the > arrow (to the right of the Arm Away icon) to expand the display.
- On the top right of the screen, press ALL. This will list your sensors.
- Select the sensors you’d like to bypass and press either Armed Stay or Armed Away.
