Hi all, I've set up all my doors and windows with door/window sensors (including temperature modules), and 2 smoke detectors and 3 flood detectors. What's the best (and usable) way to set up really critical alarms (if armed)? Do I really need to set up the alarms using the alarm settings in the advanced tab of each sensor? Or is it also reliable to use a single scene, connect all sensors with OR and send a notification? In this way, I would also not be able to include the sensor room or name in the message, but I would be able to change the text at one location instead of needing to edit every single sensor. Just want to find out what's your best practices, how you set it up for alarming you? Do ALARMS/Notifications work like "listeners"? Can i Just configure a scene which has all items like "if smokedetector=breached, or..." and the send push notifications? Or doesn't this work as Scenes always are started by manual actions/buttons/mobiles or by the setting of a single sensor (like notifications)? Regards, Andy
