Door open warning after a certain time

Would anyone else find it useful to have a feature you could set up for a door or window that would warn you via text message if a door or window had been open for more than a user defined amount of time? Our last system (we do like SimpliSafe more) had this feature and it was really nice, given my tendency to leave the garage door open.

@royk57 Your request is a good one in the garage door scenario, and I am going to take this opportunity to ask, again, like many others. for Simplisafe to integrate with a major door opener company like Chamberlain, who have this feature already native in their or app, or at least, update the SS3 system to work with the already existing door sensors.

@roy57, I have two Chamberlain MyQ garage door openers, so I am covered on leaving the door open, but for over a year before that had a SS entry sensor mounted on an Etsy sourced nylon holder and would easily see if the doors were open in my SS3 system. Works great in home mode (set to instant alert and will alarm if open) but only secret alert in away mode. That is where customers need Simplisafe to step up and integrate it appropriately for garage door applications.

SS, think of the revenue oppty! Repackage entry sensors, call them garage sensors, nylon holders already exist, sell them after you update the software and make a mint!! And, added bonus: make many of your customers happ(y,ier)!!
