Key Fob Alert

Is there any type of alert that will tell me if my system is armed or unarmed when I use the key fob? Just want to make sure the signal was received at the base station without having to check the phone app. If you have to check the app, why have the key fob? Thanks.

@dddrexel if you turn on push alerts and set for activity you will get an alart on your phone. Yes,  you will get dinged by your phone and have to look at it but not be forced to open the app itself. Note you will also get push alerts for unarming and any secret alerts.

Hi @dddrexel, 

The Key Fob will not give off an alert when you use it to arm or disarm your system, but Captain provides a great workaround here! With push notifications enabled, you'll see an alert right on your phone's screen after arming or disarming your system with your Key Fob.
