I have dialer delay on certain sensors. It’s my understanding that the delay before setting the alarm off is 30 seconds, which is what I want. On this particular occassion (can’t remember this morning or yesterday morning - long days), the sensor(door) was tripped with alarm in armed/stay mode. The panel was dinging away but I couldn’t get to it before the siren started sounding. It actually sounded for about 10 seconds before I could get my code in to disarm.
With the delay option on, is there a certain number of seconds it will ding and a certain amount it will fire the siren off, or just 30 seconds ding and right to active alarm?
When the siren has gone off in the past, I’ve always gotten somebody on the 2-way asking if everything’s ok. This time I waited for a bit, but nothing. Can you tell me if the alarm went through or should I take this up with the monitoring station?
Also, all other devices that were supposed to activate during an alarm did, e.g., camera & image sensor.
