Restricting active time for contact sensors

Cupertino, February 14, 2021

Look to pick up one of those magnetic contact sensors for the front door (probably Vocolinc). Trying to figure out if it's going to be a nuisance, notifications stop every time I leave or return to my own home. Is it possible to restrict the moments when the sensor is active? Ideally, I would like to deactivate it for a 30-minute window around the time I leave for work and a 30-minute window around the time I return and have it activated at any other time. This would significantly reduce the number of "unwanted" notifications.
