SHMDelay problem

I’ve got SHMDelay installed. It works fine with 30 second delay when I set to arm away but the alarm goes of immediately when I return. I have the return set to 30 seconds. I’ve tried every setting and can’t figure it out. Help!

Did you setup the virtual button on SHM instead the real contact sensor?

Yes, I setup a simulated sensor for the door. I added it in SHM and removed the physical sensor like it says. It works when I exit but I get an immediate intrusion alert when I come back in.

Do you have this in global settings?

My delay profile settings, if not showing is default to nothing:

I have 4 profiles for different doors, everything works fine.

That’s exactly what I have. Do you have front door removed from SHM?

Yes, I have 4 doors with separate delay profiles, I removed them from SHM and I added 4 separated virtual buttons to SHM.

Do you have motion sensors near the door that is triggering the alarm?

I don’t have any motion sensors yet

You have to have them removed from. SHM as well. They have to be added to the profile for the corresponding contact sensor.

I am stuck. I am trying to create a delay profile but it gives an error. What can it be?
