How can I have the Smoke/CO listener only cause a professional monitoring response when the system is in Away mode? Some sensors let me choose which modes they are armed for, but the Smoke/CO sensor has no such settings.
I triggered it accidentally after installing it and was surprised to get a call from the monitoring center even after I canceled it in the ring app, I assumed it was only active when the system was armed.
I’m trying to avoid the situation where I’m not home or near my phone (like if a friend is housesitting) and they accidentally set off the smoke alarm, triggering a response from the fire department. I don’t expect everyone that ever cooks here to know how to disable it from the keypad.
I really only want the fire department to be alerted when the alarm is in “Away” mode. I’ll accept the risk that I may die in a fire because the fire department wasn’t called when I slept through the alarm.
