Ideas for development of systems
1. Since I get a lot if notifications on my phone I utilize a soft/ short sound as system default to keep from constant interruptions. I would like to assign a far more aggressive sound/ alarm for simplisafe push notifications but there doesn't seem to be an option in app to allow it and my Samsung android doesn't seem to allow me to assign different sounds to different apps either. Sms alerts can have distinct sounds assigned, but push alerts are ideal and some alerts like doorbell motion detected don't have option to sms alert unless bell is pressed.
2. Doorbell should have option to play a recorded message (like "you are being video recorded") as soon as motion is detected as a preemptive measure since people with nefarious intentions aren't necessarily planning to press the doorbell button or wait for you to get and respond to a motion alert. Ideally, let a custom message be recorded and user selectable. Why not add option to all outside cameras to warn before someone has to break in to setoff an alarm.
3. Let's take above idea further and develop outdoor motion sensors specifically intended to preemptively alert potential thieves before attempting to break-in as soon as they approach perimeter of home. Voice warning and ability to send secret alert.
4. Develop a garage door sensor for system that can at least send secret alert when door is opened/ closed.
