Safe + Safe and Disarmed



Can someone explain to me the difference between "Safe" and "Safe and disarmed"? My assumption is that they are the same! This would also count for "Breached" and "Breached and disarmed".

It gives you the ability to use the armed state as a variable with the graphic blocks.

i.e "Safe" will act as a trigger whether the sensor is armed or disarmed

"Safe and armed" lets you use the sensor as a trigger when the sensor is armed, but not when it is disarmed..

etc etc

  • Sorry, I'm still confused. Let me turn it the other way around.

    I know the difference (well think I do...) between "Breached" and "Breached and Armed", i.e. "Breached" is that the sensor has been crossed but will not send and alarm state; where as "Breached and Armed" will send an alarm state.

    But then what is the difference between "Breached" and "Breached and disarmed"? Unless there is some factor that happens just after disarming?

    The reason I am asking is that I am trying to test whether the sensor has been disarmed, even though it may still be breached (such is if I am standing in front of the sensor at the time) so that I can turn the siren off. Do I just test for "Breached and Disarmed" or do I test for "Breached" as well?

    Breached means that detecting motion (for example) will trigger the scene if sensor is armed or not.

    Breached and disarmed means that sensor will trigger the scene only if has been breached but not armed (won't trigger the alarm).
