    Hi. Premier 48.
    I want to be able to arm just the downstairs at night.
    All my zones are in area A, for the normal full arm.
    I was going to put downstairs in "area B", so I can arm just that, but the manual states:
    "If a zone is assigned to more than one area, it will only be
    recognised by the system when all areas it is assigned to, are
    armed."

    ..which I guess means that the above wouldn't work - downstairs would stay disarmed because those zones are also part of the full area, which is disarmed.

    Do I have to separate the two zones, A = downstairs, B = upstairs, and then use "Area Arm Suites" to group the two zones together for the full arm?

    Apologies if this is a dumb question. I've literally just had a quick look at the manual for the first time now.

    I think I have the answer: part arm.
    I thought the part arm thing would have me having to choose zones every time I tried to arm, but it's easier than that.
