Instant Trigger for Door Sensor (Home Mode Only)

Is there a way to configure the Door Sensor to Instant Trigger in Home Mode only?  The device settings only allow the Instant Trigger setting to be turned on for both Home and Away modes.  I'd like for the Instant Trigger to sound the alarm immediately for the Door Sensor in Home mode, but not Away mode.

Sorry if this is a topic that has already been covered.  I didn't see a search section in the forum...

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Hi jcohran,

Right now, Instant Trigger does indeed work for all modes. But thanks for the suggestion! I'll forward to our dev team.

@davey_d​ Hi Davey

Any update on this. The two sensors needed on the front door to make this work seems to confuse my base station.

Any progress on this. Would be a great feature - to get around this I'm thinking of adding a second sensor to my front door.

I agree that this would be a critical feature.

@jcohran  Great suggestion and would greatly benefit customers.  For me, our one entry sensor not set to instant trigger is the one door we use all the time, the door from the kitchen to the garage.  In home mode, it would be ideal to be on instant trigger!
