I would like two options to be added to the app. One would be a Quick Arm, and the other would be a Quick Disarm.
The Quick Arm would make it so that when you hit the Home or Away button on the keypad (only that button) it will start the countdown to arm the system, without having to type the code first. The way I see it, if my system is already disarmed, there is no need to verify my identity to arm it. Or at least, that should be my decision to make.
The “Quick Disarm” option would automatically set the system to “Disarm” mode during an entry delay, upon entering the code. In other words, if you trigger your door sensor as you get home, you would only have to type “1234” and the system disarms itself, rather than “1234, (Disarm button)”.
The Quick Disarm should also make it so that during an exit delay, if you realize you forgot something, you should be able to just press “Disarm” and stop the countdown, rather than having to type "1234, (Disarm button). If the system hasn’t finished arming, I shouldn’t need my code to stop arming. Chances are pretty slim that a burglar has already arrived within 60 seconds.
