Notification for Sensor Closed
I just got my system and am loving it!
One issue I have is that there is no notification beep when an entry sensor (door/window) is closed.
You get the beep beep when you open... but dead silence when closing up.
Every alarm system I have ever seen has one beep type for open and one beep type for close (number of beeps, tone of beeps, etc). It gives confirmation that the sensor is functioning and that the thing you just closed is, in fact, closed.
I figure this shouldn't be a huge undertaking. Just a small change in the code.
Possibly add a checkbox in the settings, in case some people don't want that notification.

Yes, please!! With small kids and an indoor-only cat, there's significant peace-of-mind in knowing that a door has been closed. Also, since there are no notifications, spoken audio, or chimes to indicate which door opened - then we don't know which door to check.

Count me in to those who definitely would like to hear a (slightly different) chime when closed.
Funny - today’s SimpliSafe newsletter says:
If you set an Entry Sensor to “disabled,” it won’t trigger your alarm — but you’ll still hear a chime when it’s opened or closed!
