    to do that you have to go into engineers set up ,my advice is to try and find why you can not use zone 1 for E/E . was the E/E on zone one in the beginning .

    Try engineers mode. Factory code is 9999 with alarm unset.

    LCD Keypad

    Select using ^ button

    Set up programs

    Program 1

    Program edit

    Timed zones (check zone 1 one is yes), use button 1 to toggle

    Entry time 01 = 10 secs 02= 20 secs etc

    Exit time... as above

    X to go back and exit engineers mode

    Thanks for the replys .
    Yes zone 1 it was used as a E/E before.
    My panel is the led panel older version so there is no lcd display .I did try to change the setting on zone 1 to timed but no change instead i have now got timed in zone 3 on my pir's .can i not just swap the wires into that zone 3 as i know it is timed and use another zone for the pir 's

    Something is not right if you cant put timed on Zone 1..

    But in answer to your question, yes, just swap the zones around in the panel if it will only work entry/exit on zone 3.
