I'm trying to understand the difference between the zone definitions on a DSC.

Here's what I got :

01 Delay 1 03 Instant 04 Interior 05 Interior, Stay/Away
06 Delay, Stay/Away
25 Interior, Delay
32 Instant, Stay/Away

I want to configure my system to arm all the windows and door contacts AND the basement motion sensors only when I sleep. If any of the sensors are tripped, I would like a delay before the alarm rings (just in case I sleep walk and go to basement or open a window during the night smile ). When I go out, I want to arm everything. Delay would only be active if I enter through the Entry/Exit doors. Any other sensors tripped would activate siren immediately.

Here are my zones :

Zone 1 : Main entry/exit Doors
Zone 2 : PIR basement
Zone 3 : Window Contact
Zone 4 : PIR Upstairs
Zone 5 : PIR basement
Zone 6 : Window Contact

If I understand correctly :

Zone Definition Meaning
01 Entry/Exit Doors
03 Contacts
04 PIR
05 Contacts but w/sleep arming
06 ???
25 ???
32 PIR but w/sleep arming

So the correct programming would be :

Protected Zone Zone Definition
01 01
02 32
03 05
04 04
05 32
06 05

Hi Soupcue,

No it's still not working at it's full potential. I have it running properly when there's no one in the house. However, I can't seem to get it working in STAY mode. The panel is a PC1616 (new series that replaced eth pc1555mx). It's a DSC 632 board inside with a little bells and whistles.
