The action Change Entry Delay is implemented from Comfort Firmware 5.206

This allows an entry door zone to have a different entry delay from the default Entry Delay programmed in Security > Arming & Disarming



"Change Entry Delay 60"

means Change entry delay to 60 seconds (in Response Wizard under Security category)

Assign this response to a Zone Response  for the entry door zone


This works only when the system is armed so that opening doors with this action does not change entry time when not armed

I wasn't aware of this feature and it looks useful for some situations such as garage doors.

Does the change in entry delay reset to the default when the alarm is next set to away/night mode?

Thanks

Yes this is especially useful for Garage doors which require a longer entry time

This action affects only the zone which performs the Response which contains the action. It does not affect entry delay of any other entry door which does is not not assigned to the Response, so the main entry door is not affected

I have the On Response for an entry Zone (Door) as follows;

Response
If SecurityMode <> SecurityOff Then
Change Entry Delay 120
Announce Welcome Home
End If


I had cases where the Entry Time did not change, and initially I thought the logic was not executed, so I added the Announce to get audio confirmation. There have been a few cases where the alarm was in Night Mode and the entry time did not change to 120, but I got the announcement.

Any idea why this would be the case?

          The entry alert delay should be working
          If it was not set to 120 then what entry  time was used in the cases that it did not work?

          Is that the only entry zone in the house? The action wl work for the immediate entry alert caused by the zone only, and other entry zones will revert to the default value

          Also upgrade to the latest 7.017 firmware in case yours is an old version which does not have that feature

          15 seconds when not working and 120 when it works.

          I have multiple entry zones, but this is the only zone that I have Change Entry Delay as I need more time to get to the keypad.

          We suspect that the shortened entry delay time is not due to  "Change Entry Delay" time action not working, but due to another non-entry zone detector activated during entry time. This would cause the entry warning pre-alert to a full intruder alarm, default 5 seconds

          In ULT 7.021  the non-entry path zone that is detected during Entry alert  is recorded in the Event log (in older versions it does not appear in event log)
          So after this happens you can check the event log and see if there ia a zone activated after entry



           Current time is 01:16 am
