Yes CP-01. I also program 15-30 dialer delays, but also use cancel codes.

On this ADT install, every door, window, and motion was programmed the
same way, entry/exit delay. I don't recall what the actual time delay
was, but if this is ADT's answer to reducing false alarms...wow.

I was told that ADT has been using Lynx systems with GSM radios on strip
mall installations in the New York area. A few stores were broken into,
the Lynx system was obviously smashed. The problem is with how ADT
handles the signal that comes in from the GSM radio. They do not
dispatch or even call the customer on ECP failure...YIKES!
