ADT Alarm Systems have entry and exit delays, and the setting options are pretty much the same for all models. Actual delay times can only be set by the installer and not by the consumer. Exit delays cannot be set at all. Entry delays can be turned off to sound instant alarms while the house is occupied or while vacant for long periods. These instructions cover model 4110 for the arming the system with the delay set either on or off, with the house either occupied or vacant. Each setting is only one step. Methods may vary for other models.
Setting the Delay
For delay ON with the house occupied, enter your four-digit security code and press "STAY."
For delay OFF with the house occupied, enter your four-digit security code and press "INSTANT."
For delay ON with the house vacant, enter your four-digit security code and press "AWAY."
For delay OFF with the house vacant, enter your four-digit security code and press "MAXIMUM."
