How do I or what do I set my sensors to allow for night mode. I have 15 zones of which all are PIR's. How do I set the system at night to allow me to disable certain sensors i.e. beedroom. This is to allow movement in certain areas.

You can determine the behaviour of the PIRs in Night Mode by selecting the Zone Type.

Use Zone Type PIR Away if the zone is active only in Away Mode, like in the bedrooms and other areas where people need to move around

Use Zone Type PIR Night Away if the zone is active in Away and Night modes

In Day mode these two zone types are not active

On the keypad, arm to day mode for all PIRs to be inactive. Arm to Night mode for PIRs in PIR Night Away to be active, arm to Away Mode for all PIRs to be active

PIRs are normally programmed as PIRAway or PIRNightAway zone type.
PIRAway means it is enabled only in Away mode and disabled in other modes.
PIRNightAway means it is enabled both in Night and Away modes.

Zone name announcement can be triggered by creating a response (which has 'Say ZoneName' action) put under the PIR's zone On Response.
