Arming Your System with Alarm.com

Arming the system sets the security sensors to an alarm state. The Armed Away status sets both contact sensors and motion sensor into an alarm state, while Armed Stay status only sets contact sensors to an alarm state.

Arming Options– When you select one of the arming buttons (Stay/Away), a pop-up will display available options for your system. Options may vary depending on your system configuration.

Silent Arming – By default, when you arm your system, the panel makes exit delay beeps. Silent Arming allows you to arm the system without any noise.

No Entry Delay– Once armed, the system will bypass the entry delay that normally occurs when an entry/exit zone is violated.

Bypass Open Zones– The system will bypass open zones while arming the system. This feature can be used to attempt to force the system to arm regardless of zones that may be open. When bypassed, a zone will not trigger an alarm on the system.
