For the past several years, due to the advancement of control panel technology, keypad “Stay” shunting has become a modern-day option for alarm system programmers. Although it enables installers to completely eliminate individual mechanized shunts, which clearly had their own limitations and vulnerabilities, many serious concerns still exist when “Stay” shunting is utilized. Personally, I believe it can create a danger to the customer and a liability for the alarm company in certain circumstances. To minimize the potential liability that keypad “Stay” shunting brings to alarm companies, customers should be informed of the associated dangers of such programming before their alarm system is installed.
