How do I disable arm away voice on Honeywell system?
An audible exit warning is a series of sounds from the keypad designed to let you, and anyone else inside the premises, know the system has been armed, and the time to exit is counting down. The sound is usually a one second on/one second off series of beeps, which will increase to rapid beeping during the last 10 seconds of the exit delay period. By disabling the exit warning you will no longer hear the audible countdown after arming the system in the away or maximum mode. Arming in the Stay mode still provides an exit delay period, but there is no audible warning. So by disabling the exit warning the system will not issue any warning sounds during the exit delay period for arm stay or away.
Follow these steps on a keypad:
- Installer Code (4112 is default) +  + . You should see 20 or Installer Code 20 on the screen. "No AC" will appear on Fixed English keypads. This is normal while in program mode.
- Press *37 followed by 0. You may have to hit zero twice if your panel supports 2 partitions. If you have a Honeywell LYNX Plus (L3000) you will follow the same instructions.
- Enter *99 to exit panel programming.
The LYNX Touch panels have a different setting that disables the exit warning. The discontinued L5100, can disable the exit warning by doing the following:
Security > More > Tools > Installer Code (4112 is default) > Program > Down Key > System Settings. You will see the 'Exit Warning' selection in the center of the bottom row in the System Settings menu. Click that until it says, "No." Then be sure to save the changes and back out of programming.
The L5200 and L7000 panels will show the same selection as the earlier model LYNX Touch units, however, the 'Exit Warning' setting will be greyed out, meaning you are unable to disable the warning. This is due to the fact that the newer panels are designed to reduce false alarms, so features like Exit Warning are hard coded and can not be disabled. This ultimately reduces false alarms but does slightly limit your ability to manage the panel settings.
The long and short of it, the VISTA and early model LYNX panels can disable the exit warning, while the new LYNX Touch units and any SIA (false alarm reduction) panels can not disable the audible beeping during exit. If you do have a new LYNX Touch unit and the exit warnings are bothersome. You can simply lower your volume in the Home Screen Settings. This will affect the volume of the exit warning.
