Hi @Frans_Keeman, Just to be sure, do you want to deactivate the Alarm State or do you want to set the Surveillance Mode to Disarmed so the Alarm State will not be activated when entering the house?
If you want to deactivate the Alarm State you can do 3 things. 1st one is to (short) press the Alarm Off Button, the 2nd one is to (short) press the Surveillance Mode Switch (which is the new functionality) and the 3rd one is to do it with a flow. You can choose anything you want in the When… column. This could be the click of a button or anyone coming home (which requires a reliable presence detection)
If you want to set the Surveillance Mode to Disarmed there are again several options, either long press on the Surveillance Mode Switch and select Disarmed or create a flow with the Set Surveillance Mode card from the Surveillance Mode Switch in the Then… column and choose whatever trigger you like in the When… column. (Pressing a button, coming home etc.)
(When the Surveillance Mode is set to Disarmed an active Alarm State will be set to Deactivated so no need to set the Alarm State separately)
I guess you mean that deactivating the Alarm State will leave the Surveillance Mode in the state it is?
This is by design, if you want to do set the Surveillance Mode to Disarmed on deactivating an Alarm State you have to make a flow like this
I don’t know what you do when the Alarm State is activated (Flashing lights, playing a sound through a speaker, activate a Sirene etc) but to stop all that create a flow triggered by the The alarm is deactivated card and do the opposite of the flow you trigger with the The alarm is activated card.
