Question about alarm stay

Question about alarm stay

Just recently got Xfinity home. With this mode, can I leave the premises through the door that has the sensor that is set for front door without tripping the alarm and then when i come back I have to enter the code? Or do I have to disarm the system altogether when I want to leave temporarily and come back (like going out for the mail)?

Re: Question about alarm stay

Yes, you would want to first disarm the system before opening the front door and then re-arm after coming back from getting the mail.

 

The other option would be to bypass the front door sensor so it doesn't trip the alarm when opened... but that would mean the alarm wouldn't trip if the door opened by an intruder as well.
