Arm with door open but not bypass it

When we leave we usually have a specific door open, arm and close the door on the way out.

But that door remains bypassed while the alarm is armed.

How do you get around this?

Use the App on your phone to arm it after the door is closed. No alarm system will let you proactively arm an open or triggered sensor.

frontpoint does, so I dunno what you mean by no alarm does.

I think maybe the point that was trying to be made is “most” alarms will bypass an open sensor/contact when attempting to alarm system. This was the case with me for ADT, Protection 1, AT&T Digital Life and Desert Alarm. I remember it will ask if you want to bypass a zone when setting alarm but that may time out if not answered.
