I’m going through my house replacing the old V1 contact sensors on my exterior doors with my V2 and I’m wondering what happens if the reset button is pushed on a sensor once the system is armed? Previously the V1 sensors were actually outside the doors neatly tucked in the upper corner of the door frame. As I have placed 2 new V2 sensors the same way, I’ve realized an intruder could push the reset button. Would that set the alarm off or let them in.
I understand now in context of security it makes sense they are actually on the inside so they can’t be tampered but I never thought of that with the other sensors. Ive now got 2 V2s already stuck in place. I’d prefer they aren’t stuck on the inside of the door for aesthetics , but what’s the point of a security system that could be bypassed with one button?
