Letting the dog out.

Is there a way to temporarily bypass the entry sensor on ONE DOOR ONLY when we let the dog into the yard, that does not require disarming the system?

Hi @adveniam,

At this time, it is not possible to disarm an individual sensor on your system. For your situation, it may help to adjust some other settings on your system. Shortening the Exit Delay for whichever mode your system is armed in may make it more palatable to disarm the system briefly while letting your dog into the yard as it won't require as much time to re-arm your system.

Well, you could cheat by temporarily putting a magnet near the sensor while and when the door is opened/open. Spoofing the system, if you will.
