The easy is to create a virtual alarm and set it in "health care" mode.

Then you can use your http switch as siren.


Be aware that easily during night it will say that noone is at home (as no motion is present).

Some months ago I created an heath care partition exactly to auto-arm my alarm after X min of empty home.

Result: NEVER worked (I opened a ticket - 16 months ago - and they reply, as usual, without a timeline with a generic "We have found the issue, and the dev team is already working on it. The fix should be included in one of our next beta releases")

Is now working as expected? (I dropped the sponge, never tested again, I like to remember that this is called "health care" partition..)

I'm not sure if it works or not. When I tried it plenty of time ago I was not able to overcome the "sleeping" problem, so the alarm was triggered during the night when I was at home...
