How Do I Disable Auto-Stay Arming on a Honeywell LYNX Touch System?
You can disable Auto-Stay Arming on a Honeywell LYNX Touch System by accessing the System Settings Menu from within Installer Programming. In order to do this, you will need to provide the system's Installer Code. Once you have finished, you can save your changes and exit programming.
Auto-Stay Arming is a feature available for most alarm systems. The purpose of this feature is to prevent false alarms. With the setting enabled, a user must fault an entry/exit zone when setting their system to Arm Away. If they do not activate an entry/exit zone, the system will automatically revert to Arm Stay instead. This because the system will assume that since no entry/exit zone was activated, the user must still be inside the building. If the user is still inside the building and the system is set to Arm Away, they might cause a false alarm by activating an interior sensor. Auto-Stay Arming will revert the system to Arm Stay mode in order to prevent this from happening.
Although the intentions behind Auto-Stay Arming are good, it can cause some users problems when testing if they don't know what they're doing. If a user has their system on test mode with a central station and they want to test their interior zones, they might become frustrated when their system will not Arm Away. The reason why the system won't Arm Away is because the Auto-Stay Arming feature is activating. To overcome this problem, a user can simply fault an entry/exit zone during the exit delay period, usually by just opening and closing the feature. Or, they can disable Auto-Stay Arming from within Programming.
