The partial alarm functionality allows the user to select which devices are used to detect an alarm breach. It could be used to secure the home while sleeping by including only main door and window sensors. It can also be suited to exclude some devices generally triggered by pets.
Under Settings > Alarm > Partial Alarm Settings you can configure your partial alarm. From the settings you can choose:
- Which sensors you want to include when the home is set to partial alarming.
- If you want to have partial alarming as the default. This will make automatic arming and alarm button activate partial alarm instead of the full alarm.
Auto-disarming will only happen if a user comes back home and a sensor included in the partial alarm is triggered. We don't disarm the alarm if another sensor is triggered because this would prevent users from partially arming when at home. For example, some users may want to partially arm by night, without auto-disarming the alarm while going to the bathroom.
