Entry delay vs. Exit delay

Hi there - what is the difference between entry delay and exit delay? The sensor doesn’t know whether I’m entering or exiting, right? Doesn’t it just know whether the door is open or closed?

Entry delay is for when you get home and need time to turn off your alarm.
Exit delay is for when you go to leave and need time to exit before the alarm turns on.

Hey @flapjack! @Eagle328 is correct, these delays are based on changing armed status by leaving or returning. When your Alarm is in a disarmed mode, the Exit delay will kick in once you’ve armed the Alarm in a Home or Away mode, if it is set to do so. The Entry delay would then come into play when you need time between entering your home and reaching the Keypad to disarm the Alarm, for instance.
