Door contact set up.

Evening all. I’m trying to set up 2 part arms at home on my elite 24 panel. My setup consists of 4 PIR’s and 4 door contacts, 2 of them being entry/exit timed. My first part arm is a day one omitting only the kitchen pir because of my dog and arming everything else. The 2 part arm is a night one only arming all the door contacts but I want these as all guards at night time including the timed entry/exit doors.

I part armed the day option today but on return soon as I opened my front door the house alarm activated straight away so I’m unsure if I’ve incorrectly set up the attributes to what I’m wanting for the part arms. Is it possible to have a door contact set as both a timed entry/exit for the day part arm & full arm and just as a guard for the night arm or is it one or the other? I’ve added a picture of what I checked in the attributes. Cheers
