Auto-Stay Arming is a feature found on most alarm systems. The purpose of this feature is to prevent false alarms caused by a user accidentally activating an interior sensor when they set their system to Arm Away. The way that the Auto-Stay Arming feature works is that the system will check to see if an entry/exit zone is activated during the exit delay countdown when Arming Away. If no entry/exit zone is activated during this time, then the system will automatically revert to Arm Stay mode, even though it was set to Arm Away. This idea here is that the system assumes that the user is still inside the building since no entry/exit zone was triggered.
The Auto-Stay Arming feature sometimes causes problems because a user who wants to test their interior sensors will wonder why their system isn't Arming Away when they set it to that mode. The reason is because they didn't leave the building and activate an entry/exit zone. The easiest way to overcome this problem is to simply activate an entry/exit zone during the exit delay period. In most cases, this is as simple as opening and closing the front door. The other option is to disable the feature entirely.
Complete the following steps to disable Auto-Stay Arming:
1. Open System Configuration. Start from the main screen of the 2GIG GC2 System. Press the 2GIG logo in the bottom-right corner. Enter the Installer Code. This code is set to 1561 by default, but it is sometimes changed. Then choose System Configuration. You will enter the System Configuration Menu.
2. Disable Auto-Stay Arming. Press the "Go To" button that is in the center of the arrow keys. Enter "26". This is the Question Number for the Auto Stay feature. Press 0 to disable the feature. The task bar should read (0) Disabled.
3. Save your changes. Press the End button in the lower-right corner. You will be taken to a summary screen. Make sure the box next to "Save Changes" is checked. Then press the Exit button in the lower-right corner. The panel will begin rebooting. It will take a few moments for this reboot process to complete. When the system powers back on, Auto-Stay Arming will be disabled.
