Alarm Sensor

Do a door alarms/sensors need to be bypassed on Shabbat?

I used to turn off the chime until I realized it was a superficial workaround – the alarm still reports an immediate (silent) signal change.

Not a problem. Leave it alone and go about your business.

Isn’t it a direct action?

What is the alarm does make a sound when you go in and out?

That would not change the situation.
