That is why you should have the front door on the alarm as final exit. But if you are happy.

I will change that and give it a go, thanks.

I think Door contacts might be a good addition.

Entry/Exit is the correct zone type for Texecom.

If using a PIR instead of a door contact, I'd probably use Timed Exit for the area arming attribute with a time that allows the PIR to settle.

Connect via wintex, click Areas on the left, select the area and change from Entry/Exit to Timed Exit. Leave the zone attribute as it is - it's Entry/Exit.

I never said the circuit type is wrong, I merely pointed out that its best to have a contact on the final exit door as opposed to relying on a detector.

To me timed exit is a pain, since how long do you set it for? (Rhetorical question) if its too short the alarm will never set, if its too long people walk off and leave it as they think it will set. (Most times it will, but not always)
If the final exit door is on the alarm, the alarm will set when the door is opened then closed and if there is a problem you will know within a second or two.

Its up to the individual what they have, I just don't like timed set, or a detector on final exit* (*unless its when you are staying in the house e.g. at night.)

But the front door IS on the alarm - it's a PIR and it's the entry/exit route.

How long you set it for, is a reasonable amount of time to get ou the door, but without needing to be stood around waiting to hear it's set for a period of time that the end user determines is long enough, but not too long.

I've got a set of contacts (entry/exit), with a PIR that covers it too - that's set to guard access on a Texecom, so that you can get in to unset the alarm - come in another way and it sets the alarm off.

Rgds,

BG
