adi wires i'm george from alarm grid today we're gonna be going over how to silence the exit delay on a lyric system whenever you're arming so usually an exit delay is the time that the system gives you to exit the home before it fully arms so for instance if you're doing an arm away the the panel is always gonna give you the kind of a countdown beep i think it's like once every second and then wants to get closer once it gets closer to zero I believe at ten seconds it starts doing it a more frequent so whoever's in the house knows that they have to exit pretty soon there is a way to silence it and it is very easy so the exit delay is something that can be programmed in the system by default it's usually set to 60 seconds however some people switch it for longer if their front door is further away from the panel and they need more time to exit the house you'll notice that the exit delay only sounds on an arm away by default if you're doing an arm stay you get a three beep confirmation but then after that there's no beeping because they knows that there's people still in the house so I'm gonna show you guys that real quick right so we're at the primary screen I'm gonna go ahead and hit security after I hit security I'm gonna show you guys the arms stay first to show you guys what that one looks like right so if I do an arm stay I'm gonna enter in my master code which by default is one two three four so I'm gonna go one two three four you hear that three beep confirmation and then the arm state but notice now it's not making any sound at all and it's not gonna make any sound for the rest of the for the rest of the exit delay right I'm gonna go ahead and disarm this now again using the same code and now I'm gonna show you what an arm away sounds like right so we do arm away I enter my code and it gives me that countdown basically every second once it gets down to ten seconds right here it gets a more frequent beep alright I'll just go ahead and let it go sighs so you guys can see ten seconds now it's beating faster and since I didn't open up a door or an entry/exit it should go into an arm stay so I have a feature it's an auto stay feature which means that if you do an arm away and you don't open up an entry/exit door such as your front door garage or anything like that then the system automatically reverses to stay because it knows that nobody left the house and it's a way to just prevent false alarms from happening right so we now I went into an armed stay but you notice while I was arming away it was giving you that beeping confirmation and then at ten seconds they got more frequent so let's go ahead and disarm it and now now I'm going to show you guys how to silence that exit exit beeping now keep in mind if you silence the exit beeping it will double whatever that exit delay is programmed to be so - 60 seconds is gonna double it to 120 if yours is 120 it's gonna double it to 240 all right so keep that in mind so there's two easy ways of doing this right if you do an arm away it's right there silent exit all right you just highlight it blue that means it's enabled then you enter in your code one two three four and now there's no beeping and it's our Malloy now I said I'm using one two three four because that is my default cold yours could be different if you or your company has changes so make sure you're using the correct codes all right as you see is gonna calm down all the way down I'm not gonna wait here for that so let's just go ahead and disarm it right so that's the first way all right so the first way to do is is that directly from the arm away the second way to do that is from an arm custom so whenever you do arm custom you're gonna be taken to a list of all your zones which you can highlight the ones that you want to bypass so if for instance right now my front door I have highlighted because I want to bypass it as my front door right now is open right I don't have the magnet connected to the contact or to the read switch so if I unhighlight it that means none of my none of my sensors are bypassed so to bypass you highlight the sensors blue so I'm gonna bypass front door and then you hit armed custom now my entry delay is enabled right so if you want to get rid of entry delay you just unhighlight it but keep in mind if you hunt unhighlight that that means any of your doors that you have around the house are automatically going to be set to perimeter which means that there's not gonna be any entry any entry delay so whenever you enter in through a door the alarm is immediately gonna go off so usually we like to keep that highlighted just because you're always gonna enter in your house to do one of the entry exit doors however if you come if you you strictly are on a plan to use the Total Connect application and you just use the app to arm in disarm the system then obviously if you get rid of if you make all your doors perimeter then you can use the app before entering the house to disarm the system reducing any cause of a false alarm right so again you know it backs you back out to the zone screen if you take too long so again I'm just going to go to armed custom I'm gonna leave my entry delay enabled right so right now it's enabled and then silent exit you want to enable that by highlighting it blue as well so that is this that is the second way on how to silence your exit delay so I hit side and exit I enter in my code one two three four and now there's no beeping and it's in you'll see up at the very top armed custom exit now exit now and then I did do the arm away right so now let's go ahead and hit a disarm and those are the two ways on how to silence the exit delay either you can go armed away directly here or armed custom which is what we just did if you guys do have any questions about the lyric system feel free to contact us our email is support at alarm grid comm if you guys found this video helpful make sure you like underneath subscribe to the YouTube channel and enable the notifications so whenever we upload new content you guys do get notified i'm georgia i'll see you guys next time
