Bypassing A Zone:
If a zone is showing “open” or in "error" and you are not able to arm your system, you can try to bypass the zone. Bypassing a zone tells your system to ignore any activity on that zone. Doing so can allow you to arm a system that has an error that needs service. This will keep your site safe while awaiting repairs.

To turn off a bypass, follow the same steps and use the 'star' button to toggle off the "B" in the zone.
