So I have a pretty random question. I am a volunteer firefighter, so in the middle of the night when my alarm is set on ‘armed (stay)’ I might get a fire call and have to run off. At 3AM, I’m not always conscious enough to turn off the alarm before I run out the door (which also takes time), leaving a very upset wife when I come back.
I need a way to have the alarm system turn off when I get a fire call.
I always have to grab a specific set of keys for the firehouse
I have an iphone
Fire calls come in with a pager or an alert on my phone
Possible solutions I’ve come up with:
-Put a door sensor on my keyring, and the other part on the wall (but this would have to be perfectly aligned every time
-Some sort of app on my phone so when the fire call application notifies me, it would automatically turn off alarm system (love this idea, just don’t know what could do it)
-Button by keychain to turn off alarm (would have to remember to hit it)
-Remove this door from alarm system (seems like a bad idea)
So I need help. Any solutions I’m missing? Any idea how to do any of the solutions in a decent and reliable way?
Thanks in advance everyone!
