Schedule for Secret Alerts

​Coming from ATT Digital Life, a great feature was to specify a time range for Alerts to trigger. Example: I want a silent alarm to trigger and send me an sms message when there's motion in my garage or when the front door opens between 12 midnight and 6 am only. Outside of those hours, I don't want an sms message sent to me as people are active around the house.  Seems easy to check for a time range before sending a push or sms message.​

SimpliSafe's Secret Alerts allow you to receive Smart Alerts from specific individual Entry, Motion, or Glassbreak sensors without triggering an alarm. For example, making sure that your children are not getting into your liquor cabinet or gun safe, when you'd prefer not to trigger an actual full alarm. You can learn more about the feature on our Help Center here.

Secret Alerts can be set on a per-mode basis. So in this user's situation, they can set their garage sensor to be on Secret Alert in Home Mode - then use Home Mode when it's time to go to bed. If there is motion detected in the garage, they will receive a notification, but there will not be an actual alarm. But all their other sensors - on doors and windows - can still trigger as per usual.

That option does not exist on SS systems.

You can accomplish something similar if you set the system to be armed in the "Home Mode" before going to bed and disarming when you get up.  It's not automatic, but allows you to get silent (or not so silent if you choose) alerts from any of your intrusion sensors.  I guess another downside would be if you wanted to use your "Home Mode" during both the day and night but wanted different behavior at night than during the day.

Has there been any movement in setting up time periods when secret alerts are received? We can schedule the system to arm or disarm at certain times…but if I disarm it for someone coming home (such as a child) but still want to know when/if they opened the front door only during certain time periods…is that STILL not an option?
