Doorbell Motion tied to Armed State

I would like to disable notifications for all cameras (including cameras on doorbells) whenever the system is set to Home or Off (especially when off).  Is this possible and if so, how do I configure this in the app?

@shdwlynx short answer is no, however, I am confident SS will read this post and pass it on to product dev team. BTW, don't hold your breath. :-) I would like this feature too, and add, again, the ability to pass on to digital assistants an alarm state so I, and others, can have our IoT lights turned on.

SS, feel free to prove me wrong on both counts and have these features available Sept 1!

@captain11​ any chance you know where their real bug tracker is, so I can post something somewhere useful?  For instance, Jira or BugHunt, etc.?  Anyone from SimpliSafe care to comment?  This seems like a basic feature that every user would want because who wants 20 alerts per hour when your kids are outside playing?  The IoT integration would be nice, too.  I don't suppose there's an API somewhere...

@shdwlynx​ Sorry about the delay, just saw your post. (was on vacation).  To the best of my knowlege there are no API's out there that accomplish this (believe me, I have looked, including using IFTTT with no success).

I'd like to voice my support for this feature enhancement as well. As other devices in the SimpliSafe system allow fine tuned control surrounding alerting depending on the alarm system state, I expect the same for their cameras as well.

Having to have all or none for notifications is not ideal.

If you search the forums you will see this has been flagged many times

There are many hollow promises of how the engineering team are always looking for ways to improve; yet there is absolutely nothing in the way of tangible improvement.

Add me to the list of people who would support this request.  I just set my system up yesterday, and the notifications are driving me crazy.  As far as I can tell, we only have the option to allow all push notifications or allow none of them.

Still waiting months and months later...how damn hard is it to block notifications when in home or off mode is it anyways! Can't even get a SIMPLISAFE person to address this issue on why it can't be fixed. SMH

I agree as well.  Please enhance the system so we can determine when we want Motion alerts sent via push.  Always, Home, Away, Off, Never... etc.   Personally I want them sent in Home and Away mode.

+1! Having dozens of motion notifications when I’m in my own backyard is getting very annoying, I only want these notifications when the alarm is on in Away mode

@AlexabethP​ you have to do what I do and when you know you are going to be outside for awhile like I do when I'm mowing I have to go in app under each camera and turn it off for each, pain sometimes yes but it will not kill me, not yet anyway lol

+1 I would also like this feature. Just got some doorbell pros setup and I was surprised there was not an option for this yet.
