I understand what you are saying, and it does work that way if the garage door is open before the control is force armed. I’m asking about the info I copied from the M1 manual into my earlier post about what it says should happen if the door is open after the the control is armed (during the exit delay timer period)…

CAUTION! Force arm operates in a unique way on entry/exit zones! – Entry/Exit zones that are also force armable can be violated during the exit delay and still become force armed. This allows a user to arm, open a garage door, back out, and then shut the door at their leisure, without creating a false alarm and without a long exit delay time. As soon as the garage door is closed, it will automatically return to service.

Is the above statement from the M1 manual incorrect?
