Entry/ Exit Delay

When a user enters an area that is monitored by a security system, a built-in delay begins counting to give the user time to enter the required passcode. Implementing entry/exit delays helps to avoid setting off alarms when it’s not necessary. Predetermined delays can last 15 to 120 seconds before the alarm signal is sent to the central station.
