Product Improvement - External Alarm Status Indicator
Before I enter my garage, I'd like to know if my alarm has been disarmed. I have triggered my alarm a couple of times because the disarm signal from the keychain remote didn't reach the base station. Please consider developing a small devise that would indicate the system status from armed to disarmed and disarmed to armed. This could simply be a small box with a set of bright red and green LEDs. It would flash a green light for maybe ten seconds to indicate a disarmed status and red for armed. It would only indicate status changes and would not be continuously lit. This would provide a positive indication that the alarm is off before I open my garage and armed before I leave my driveway. It could be mounted to a window with suction cups, 3M Command strips, etc. or water resistant for use externally.
I would like a 5% royalty for every status indicator sold. Joking of course. I would just be happy to have a devise like this made available for all SimpliSafe subscribers. I know I'm not the only one left wondering if my keychain remote successfully armed or disarmed my alarm.
