I tried the settings that you sent in the link. It does stop the sensor from setting off the alarm but however the door has to be left open for 1 minute before the alarm sounds so isn’t very practical. They need an entry delay in the settings like they do for exit. The entry delay should sound alarm after the specified time after door is open and only cancel if the correct code is entered
Now my overhead garage door is programmed to delay 5 minutes after opening before alarming when the mode is set to away which is my entry delay. I have 5 minutes to change to home mode using either the keypad, a handset, or the phone app.
So what would you have Ooma change to meet your definition of entry delay?
Now I can walk in and close the door and nothing happens.
Not sure if you are having the same problem
If it doesn't alarm then you are correct it is not an entry delay. With my old ADT alarm opening the door with the entry delay started a 45 second timer. If the correct code wasn't entered in that time window the alarm would go off even if the door was closed.
In any event it is very unlikely that a burglar would attempt entry via an overhead garage door. The automatic opener would have to be broken and that chain is pretty tough. The overhead garage door is the only sensor with a delay when in away mode. Even if the overhead door is forced, the burglar would still have to force open the door from the garage to the house in order to steal anything valuable. That door has a sensor on it. The sliding patio door would be the logical choice. If the door frame remained intact preventing the attached sensor from activating a motion sensor would detect the intruder as soon as he stepped through the smashed glass. Before I purchased my house I learned it was broken into once. Entry was made by kicking in a basement casement window. The previous homeowner had the basement casement windows on the rear of the house converted to glass block. Shortly after purchasing the house I had the remaining 4 windows converted to glass block.
No matter what precautions a homeowner takes a burglar can still get in. However I am confident that my Ooma system will activate if that happens. The weak link is still the phone line that carries my internet service. I have requested that Ooma notify me when the cellular backup is available for my Telo.
