Chime in Home Mode for disabled sensors
I just spent a good amount of time on tech support attempting to verify/understand this lack of capability as well. I want to arm in HOME mode - e.g. to protect my street side doors and windows while in the house -- but need the chime active (along with SMS or notification alerts in case I'm out of earshot of the base station) in case a grandchild goes out a rear patio door toward the pool. Also helps me know someone is through a door or window that's not currently alarmed while I'm at HOME in HOME mode. Works perfectly if I leave the alarm OFF, but goes silent if I put the alarm in HOME. Huh? What logic is that? They recommended alarming everything which is a silly option when there are people in and out of the rear patio. Ugh.

@brucemid15 It sounds like what you're looking for is Zoning - that is, having different Entry Sensors armed while others are not. But our system unfortunately doesn't work in that way. When you set your system to Home or Away, all sensors are armed. And all the Secret Alert setting does is to change whether or not triggering a sensor while the system is armed will generate an actual alarm.
