driazen posted a topic in Questions/HelpSo I have a question for anyone with with pets and the new alarm requirements 4/2017. In my previous setup I had contact and glass break sensors and such on doors and windows and just one motion sensor(small open floor plan house). In the previous setup I could set it to all devices but require 2 activation's and any of the contacts + the motion sensor set the alarm off. This worked well as I could have a good alarm system but wouldn't set off for my indoor pets. With the new system it appears I can no longer use my motion sensor in my alarm scheme as it will always activate. Plus looking at the 5 minute rule if I got two or more sensors and set them up id still be in a mess if I set it to two as they have a 5 min separation and if the pet walked the whole house in less than 5 minutes it would go off. Is there any way to set up with motion sensors and contact sensors in the new system with indoor pets without having to have every single room in the house on a separate motion sensors and requiring many items to be tripped to set the alarm off? Thanks for any assistance.
