SimpliSafe Stance On Automatically Disarming Alarm

@Davey,

I'm 99.9% sure I saw a post in the past that boiled down to, "We're not going to allow for automatically/programmatically disarming the alarm for security reasons" but I can't find it.

Am I crazy and this post didn't happen or is it that I just can't find it? If I recall it was in response to someone asking for the ability to automatically disarm the alarm from homekit or based on being nearby or some such. At any rate, what *is* SImpliSafe's stance on this functionality? It's not there now, I know, but is it fairly safe to say this isn't going to be a thing that happens due to security concerns?

Hi Worthing,

I wouldn't say that we have a hardline stance on it. Just that, as the system is designed currently, we wanted arming and disarming to always involve a human. Every time you see an Arm or Disarm on your timeline, you'll know that a person did it, and with which device. If a PIN was used, you'll even know who.

I just want to be able to arm/disarm with siri!  This was promised, originally..... but has fallen through the cracks into the blackhole!
