Scheduled arming and Google Assistant

Hi, just wanted to put in my vote that I think there should be a scheduled arming feature (I see previous forum posts where this has been requested a lot). My previous Digital Life system had it, and it was nice to have as a safeguard in case of forgetting to do it myself in the evening. In fact, it's this missing feature that right now has me a bit hesitant about whether to keep the Simplisafe (I just made the switch yesterday since Digital Life will no longer be supporting cellular emergency calls, and I didn't like the 3 year contract and more expensive monthly cost for the Brink upgrade they offered). Yes, I know you can set reminders, but that isn't as useful as I'm not always checking the notifications on my phone.

That said, I found that you can set up a scheduled arm (no disarm) if you have Google assistant/home. Simply create a routine in the Google home app that runs at a specified time each day, and have it arm your security system as the action for that routine.
