How to set up a do not disturb prompt to turn off the alarm when you get home?

Cupertino, October 9, 2023

A question for the HomeKit experts: We have a HomeKit enabled alarm system and would like to ask ourselves to turn it off when we get home. We can achieve this behavior by creating a HomeKit automation, but there's a problem: we get the prompt even if the alarm is already off (eg someone's home). Setting it as a shortcut still prompts every time, even with a condition to do nothing if the alarm is already off. What is the best way to have an alarm disable prompt that only appears if the alarm is enabled? If this is not achievable with native HomeKit, is there a way to achieve this with HomeBridge or similar? Thanks!
