Hello! I set up a Raspberry Pi as the Homebridge hub, which exposes my Verisure alarm system. It's great because it shows me the status of all the sensors - the temperature and relative humidity of the fire alarms, the status of the door contact sensor, and so on. However, I have two questions that I hope someone can answer: 1. The Verisure Homebridge plugin only seems to vote. This makes sense for sensors such as temperature and relative humidity, but not for "events" such as the opening of the door contact sensor. I left the default probing interval at 60 seconds so as not to completely discharge the batteries too quickly. However, door opening events are delayed by up to 60 seconds and can be missed altogether. Is there a way to configure event-based door contact sensors so that they push their status changes into the HomeKit so they can react instantly, instead of being questioned? 2. I would like to create an automation that turns on all the lights in case of an alarm. However, the Homebridge Verisure plugin does not expose the "fire alarm", "burglar alarm" and "flood alarm" sensor events, so I can't do that. Do you know if it would be possible to enter these events in the HomeKit in any way? I know I can set up a shortcut to trigger automation of a particular SMS, but of course it wouldn't work if the phone is turned off, so I'd have preferred proper support for HomeKit events for these conditions. Thanks!
