iPad app and pop-up of camera after being triggered



I'm looking for a solution to get more grip in my house to see what's going on after being triggered.


I have an Aritech alarm system, attached to a binary sensor which is notifying Fibaro when one of our doors is being opened. This works fine...


I have now two possibilities:

1. attach an alarm sirene like the Neo Coolcam, but this only produces a sound (like a doorbell) and some light flashing

2. mount an iPad to the wall and run the Fibaro app


For finding a solution for option 2 my question is: would it be possible to pop-up the camera screen in the Fibaro iPad app to notify people in the house somebody is approaching via one of my doors in the house? Possibly along with a signal/sound?


What do you think of the best app for an iPad which is mounted to the wall? Is Fibaro app the only option? I don't really like the app as my iPad home-screen as for end-users it's probably a bit too technical and I would prefer per room a picture with sensors/actors in the room to make things logical and easy for non-technical users. 


Any advice is welcome.
