Bypass a window or door

Can I bypass a window or a door when the system is in home or away mode?

In other words, I want to set my system in home or away mode, but keep a particular window or door open and not  protected.

Yeah, just arm Home or Away mode with the door or window open and it will be ignored.

That said, if you close the door or window when the system is armed then the system will consider the sensor back in the system and trigger the alarm if you subsequently open again without first disarming the system.
