Alert if Smart Lock is left unlocked for [x] minutes

I have a suggestion - I'd like to have the option of a Smart Lock alert if my lock is left unlocked for more than X minutes. Ideally I could set X but it would also work to have options like 30min, 60min, 120min, etc. This would help remind me if I forget to lock up!

I'd like to find a way to set up an alert if a door is left open for a set amount of time.  I want to be reminded if I leave the garage door open.  Don't seem to be able to do this currently.

This would be a great feature to add to SimpliSafe. Other alarm companies already have this feature in their apps.

I have a suggestion, could you please add another alert that lets one know if a door has been closed after it has been opened.  Or a timer to the open status alert that send an alert when the door has been opened for xxx seconds.  Allow xxx seconds to be controlled by the user.   The reason for the suggestion, is i have a residence on the coast, and in the summer if a door is left open to one of the decks, the a/c will run forever...trying to cool down the room.   An alert would let me know that someone left a door open to the decks.   Better yet...Integrate with Ecobee, or IFTTT.   Thanks!

This is one of the features I used the most on the previous system I owned.

Must have this, please add
