What is the difference between stay, sleep & bypass?

[Stay] and [Sleep] are types of bypass settings; they are predetermined bypasses set by the installer on a panel as per end user specifications as a custom selection of activation zones whilst the areas are armed.


In other words, [Stay] and [Sleep] are the same function where there are predetermined zones that will be armed and disarmed. For example, a user can use [Stay] during the day when they are out and want the house armed but would like certain zones disarmed to allow for pets to move around the property without triggering the alarm. [Sleep] would then be the exact same function except different zones are selected, to allow user movement throughout the house at bed time without triggering the alarm.

[Bypass] on the other hand would then be the setting for the selected zones to allow for movement without triggering the alarm while the area is armed, for the 2 arm functions [Stay] and [Sleep].
