Feature Request: Nighttime Alarm Mode

I'm not sure if this has been suggested before because I don't see a search anywhere on this forum while on mobile.

During the day when I have the system set to home there are a few windows that I like to have open if the weather is nice but I don't want them to set an alarm off.

On the other hand when I'm asleep I do want those windows to set off an alarm.

This probably could be solved with away mode for most people but I have motion sensors that cover large areas of rooms and sometimes I get up in the middle of the night.

If you arm your system in home mode and want windows open just open windows first then arm it, all it will say is warning living room sensor open or something to that so it will be armed just not those windows you have open until you close them and once you close them they will be active again. But if you have it armed then no don't open window do it before you arm.

My previous alarm system had a "Home' and "Night' mode, with the main difference being an entry countdown for the doors in "Home' and an instant trigger in "Night'.  I've seen that come up a few times in the forums, and I've spoken about it myself.  I don't see it being introduced, at least any time soon.  I've tailored my settings for Home mode to make it work for both situations.  

For the windows, SimpliSafe actually suggests that one could get a second entry sensor magnet (just the skinny part) and place one right above the other. This would prevent the window from triggering until the sensor got above the 2nd magnet.  That might not be a good solution for you, but I thought I would just throw it out there.
