Accessing sensors event log
- If a sensor is "disabled" in the "Off" system state, I'm not seeing any activity logs from it in the Timeline. Applies to both Motion and Entry sensors.
- If I set a sensor to "silent alert" in the "Off" system state I'm seeing events from the Entry sensors, but not from the Motion ones.
- Also, the "silent alert" for an Entry sensor only reports "entry sensor opened" event, but not "entry sensor closed".

To clarify, the Base Station actively sends only three types of signals to the event log:
Errors - including failed check-ins, jamming, and battery
In terms of alarm signals for Entry, Motion, and Glassbreak Sensors: only Secret Alerts are available in Off Mode. So if the system is Off (disarmed), the Base Station will send only Secret Alert signals, and not anything else from these sensors.
Separately, our server will request updates on the system's current state - regularly on its on, and whenever you request it from the SimpliSafe app. The "closed" state of Entry Sensors is sent at that time, and not immediately after the sensor is actually closed.
