    Hi, having installed a new Texecom Premier and got it all working (thanks to help from this forum) I've now got another issue which I'm sure is a programming one.

    My Zone 3 is a loop of upstairs window contacts (no tamper) which are programmed as normally closed. The circuit works perfectly. If a window is opened while the system is armed i get an alarm. Happy days.

    However, in the summer we regularly go out and leave the upstairs windows ajar. Therefore i want it to be able to omit them. So, under Zone 3 attributes I made sure that 'O' was in place to made the zone omitable. I then tested using the omit procedure in the manual (enter code - press omit - enter zone #, etc.) only to find it not working. it simply ignored the omit and arm failed as the zone was active.

    I then tried to do the same thing via 'part arm', so added the variable to make it under 'part arm 1'. Again the procedure in the manual fails.

    The photo below shows the Zone 3 attributes (part 1)

    and the resulting position when i try to omit or part arm.

    All advice gratefully received.

    firstly if you have told your insurance you have an alarm system, you may not be insured during the summer. Insurance often require that it must be armed and serviced. safer usually to advise you don't have one unless they insist.

    Would have to see what it shows in the event log as to the arm fail.

    it may be more prudent to use force omit where any zone left active, ie open window is omitted at set, and would restore to an active device if it was then made secure whilst armed (unlikely event, but burglar could close the window to and then reopen it ).

    @secureiam You point re insurance is well made and valid - but not relevant in my circumstances.

    I'll try the force omit and see how that goes. Appreciate the response. Thanks

    to be fair if you omitted the zone after entering the code it should not have failed to arm, the event log will give an idea of the sequence of events

    That worked perfectly and, i think, is a better solution than omit or part arm. Both omit and part arm are 'fiddly' and there is no way the wife would get her head around it - whereas this just works.

    I'm waiting for some decent weather to sort out a bell tamper issue and then it's a fully working system!
