What is the difference between 24 Hour Silent zone type , vs 24 Hour Silent burglary option in zone type programming? Is there a difference ?
The different zone types work like this:
24 Hour Silent - You would primarily program this for panic buttons. It will trigger a silent alarm any time the sensor is tripped.
24 Hour Burglary - This is basically a perimeter sensor that has a silent alarm. I can’t really think of any applications for this in a residential alarm. It probably works best with a commercial system where you aren’t terribly concerned with the intruder ransacking the place, and more concerned with catching them. Where an audible alarm would let them know that police are on the way, a silent alarm would let them think they have more time to get whatever they want.
