Trying to do a response where a PIR in zone A under specific conditions triggers bypass of zone B and then a PIR in zone B triggers bypass of zone C. But the bypass appears to do exactly that - bypass completely so the PIR in zone B doesn't report to Comfort and so the bypass of zone C never happens.

I suppose this is sort of logical, but was just wondering if this is the correct behaviour or whether I've got something wrong in my code.

I could probably do this using a timer or simply bypass zones B and C from the zone A trigger, but would like other automation functions to continue to operate - for example, lights off and unbypass in zone C after a specified period of inactivity. Is this possible? I suppose I could also put in additional "non-alarm" PIRs, but this seems to be a waste of inputs!

Bypass means the zone is ignored completely
You may be able to accomplish what you want by setting a Flag for the zone which is checked in the zone response and Skips the alarm
The zone response based on Time can also set Flags in other zones etc

Thanks for your reply Chiu.

Hadn't used Skip Alarm before but had been considering trying this and your reply gave me the necessary kickstart. Have set the zone-on response to check a flag before doing what needs to be done and set & unset the flag in other responses as needed. Also had to use Skip Announcement and now this appears to do exactly what I wanted. Once again thanks for your ever present assistance.

Regards,
Leon
