NOT READY message on ELK keypad


Senior Member
Is this normal folks? My system is in disarmed mode. When my motion senses movement, the keypad shows NOT READY. Then it goes away if it doesn't sense any movement anymore.

Congratulations, your panel is working just like the design engineers planned. If you have a violated motion sensor you have a panel that is "not ready." Who wants to go into the force arming capability of the M1?
The Force Arming is a very useful option in a situation where you have the motion detector pointing at the keypad where you're standing to Arm the system.

Without Force Arming option then every one has to stand still until the message say READY before you can arm the system.
