System Schedule Options & Auto Arm/Disarm [Show All]
1) DMP schedules can now be set active or inactive without having to use the temporary window option.
2) Holidays can be edited from the main schedules page rather than having to first click on a time window.
3) DMP area schedules can now allow auto arming and disarming to be enabled or disabled.
We wanted to ensure that you approve of giving the customer the
authority to enable auto arming or disarming and so there is a per
device option to enable this feature to show up for your
customer. The option is present for XR 150, 350, or 550 panels
only. To enable from the Dealer Site, Go to the
Customer->Device->General, scroll down under Options, set Auto
Arm/Disarm Options to Yes, click Save Changes.
performing those steps, the options to enable/disable auto arm/disarm
will show on the Customer Site from the Area Schedule page. If
the DMP progamming option of area schedules is turned on then only the
auto arm/disarm option for the matching area will be shown in the area
schedule. If area schedules is turned off then all areas will be
shown for auto arm/disarm in the same area schedule.
We chose to
show the options under the schedule since then it confirms there is a
schedule prior to setting the option. Also, if enabling auto-arm
there is a warning window presented so they understand how the time
windows will affect the operation. If auto arm or disarm is
enabled then they will not be able to delete the schedule.
customer can configure an automatic task rule to send out an email
reminder to re-enable the auto arm/disarm at some point in the
future. There is also a helpful "Tip" message shown to the user
if they are changing the current auto arm/disarm option to make them
aware of this reminder option.
