    You need to enter Programming mode, go to location 005, and enter a 12 digit string(entry 1, entry 2, exit, and bell cuttoff. ## to exit.
    [005] System Times
    030 I_______I_______I_______I Entry Delay 1 (001-255 seconds) (5.15 “Entry/Exit Delay Options”)
    045 I_______I_______I_______I Entry Delay 2 (001-255 seconds) (5.15 “Entry/Exit Delay Options”)
    120 I_______I_______I_______I Exit Delay (001-255 seconds) (5.15 “Entry/Exit Delay Options”)

    I'm having the same issue. I'm not sure how to program a 5500 keypad. Where do I need to go to change the setting for enter delay? What do I need to punch in? My bells goes off right away. Once I walk into the door. I don't understand the manual - it tells me 030045060. I don't understand what all this number means. Also when I press the stay mode. Whenever I walk through a motion. My bells goes off. How to I program my motion so that it does not alarm in stay mode.

    You need Installers code to change Delays and bell cuttoff.
    You show a 9 digit string, check manual to be sure of the length, PC 5010 and 1832 may be different. Verify.
    The first digits you have look like 30 second delay for Entry 1, and 45 seconds for Entry 2. Your manual will show exact length.
    The Motion needs to be programmed as 5(interior)
    Entry door needs to be programmed as "01"(Entry 1)
