Suggestion...Camera motion tied to mode and water sensor secret alert

Would it be possible to have an option for the water sensor to trigger a secret alert instead of sounding the alarm when it detects water? Also I think it would be more sensible to have camera motion detection tied into the modes as an option for each mode(off, home, away) instead of just being able to turn motion detection on or off without regard to the mode.

I'm all for flexibility so if this does get implemented please make it an option. I (and I can guarantee others) absolutely want a noise, a phone call, etc. if there's a water leak and not just a secret alert to a phone that may be set to silent or belong to someone who is asleep, not at home, etc.

^ And that seems to be the consensus among users here, I'd think it would be paramount to get those alarms/alerts so one could prevent hundreds or possibly thousands of dollars worth of damage. (plus, some home insurance companies can be iffy with coverage for water damage, depending on source or situation).

I think it is just a hassle to have to disable motion for cameras via camera settings each time (if you don't want motion in certain modes) and would be a whole lot easier to have motion detection for each camera linked to what mode the system is in.

Oh I agree, if you don't want the audible alert it must be a pain. I'm all for both options existing, I just don't want to lose functionality if they add this.
