Is there a way to disable a door sensor UNTIL it is MANUALLY re-enabled and not at next re-arm.

Regular Visitor

Is there a way to disable a door sensor UNTIL it is MANUALLY re-enabled and not at next re-arm.

WE have to keep a cat home for several weeks and can not close the garage door where his litter his. I do want to have to by-pass the garage door each time I need to arm the alarm.

 

Thanks in advance

Apologies for the inconvenience, but security sensors are unbypassed (or re-enabled) each time the security system is disarmed.  This is a feature to ensure that a security sensor is not inadvertently left bypassed, when the system is armed.  You may disable a sensor from the Touchscreen itself or remotely from the Web or mobile app.

I assume that when you say "you can disable a sensor from the console or app" you met by-pass, or actually turn off the sensor with the slider on the sensor page. But that again will be re-arm next time.

Removing the battery is also useless since everyhour the warning will come back.  I seriously thing that the console and app should provide this feature.
