Panic Button from App

Perhaps this has already been mentioned in the forum, but I don't want to take the time to search through all of them to see.

I'd like to suggest the ability to hit a panic alarm from the app on my phone. I have the keypad, the key fobs and a few of the individual panic buttons. What if my wife is coming home and sees something going on at the house as she pulls up? Maybe they haven't broken in to activate the alarm yet? Maybe we forgot to set the alarm before we left? Or, what if we are away and see someone snooping around the house on the video cameras? There should be a way to use the app to activate a panic alarm and instantly set off the sirens, and prompt law enforcement dispatch.

Just a suggestion that I hope they will consider, if they aren't already.

@darinhamman this has been requested in the past and in my opinion a bit too prone to false alarms.  I do have three echo devices that I can say "Alexa, turn on house lights" and nine go on outside and inside the house to light it up like a Christmas tree. Yes, not as good a deterrent as a full alarm and sirens going off but still something.
