I’m contemplating switching my alarm setup from Smart Alarm to a combination of SHM and Rule Machine. Here’s my motivation: for as great (and reliable) as Smart Alarm has been, its always bothered me (and more importantly, the wife) that there isn’t an easier way to see the armed/disarmed status of the alarm. I know it follows the mode, but seeing the current mode the house is in isn’t all that easy/intuitive either. So I’m thinking of setting up SHM to act only as a switch/indicator and have Rule Machine take care of the rest. Here is what my logic in RM would look like:
Anyone have any experience trying this or have any reason to believe this wouldn’t be at least somewhat reliable?
EDIT: I haven’t set it up in my rule pictured above, but I would have Rule Machine set off all the sirens in the house as an action on True.
