Simon XTi-5 security panel - Bypassing Sensors

Bypassing a sensor allows you to open the sensor while the system is armed. For example, if your doors and windows are armed and you want to open your kitchen window, but do not want to disarm the entire system, you can bypass the
kitchen window sensor and then open the kitchen window without causing an alarm.
You may also refer to page 11 of the Simon XTi-5 user manual.

The following videos explain how to directly and indirectly bypass a sensor.
