24 hr cicuit is NC continuous loop. The 24hr loop activates an internal
alarm whereas the main loop (also NC) activates the external sounder.
Systems are made up of many types of sensor i.e. PIR, door contacts,
vibration sensors which would constantly trigger while alarm set. Hence
separate 24 hr loop.
These things have to be designed to meet National Standards. If its to use
in your own home you can ignore the 24 hr loop if you like. I'm sure 4 way
cable is available and you just ignore the 24hr loop connections.
