Remotely triggering an alarm

I was alerted to movement by outdoor cameras while remote and found there were people on the property trying to get into the house  I discovered then that there is no obvious way via the app or website to set off the alarm.  Am I missing some way to trigger the system alarm remotely similar to the panic button or  is a break-in/indoor device trigger required for an alarm to be sounded?

This missing functionality was addressed in the previous version of this support app.  You are not missing anything (at this time).

@general_kaos​ got it... Thanks! Hopefully they'll get it figured out in a future version of their mobile application. Certainly seems there would be enough interest in providing this as an additional security feature.

It seems to be an oversight that a person cannot activate his alarm system remotely thru the App. What if a glass detector doesn't detect someone and they are in a room with valuables. would an alarm activation button be a good thing?

This just seems like such a no-brainer. Of course, this should be built into the app.
