Delay on Exit Problem using SmartThings

I cannot seem to configure SmartThings Home Monitor (SHM) to allow me a delay upon exit.  In SHM options under "Set response", I've set  the "Delay time" to one minute.  I've set the "Delay before alert" to one minute, which I believe is the siren alert, but not sure as unclear in the app.

I arm the system, open the main door and walk out.  One minute later, SHM sends me a text about the door being opened.  Two minutes after exit, the siren goes off.

How to I configure SHM to allow a delay upon exit?  Thanks in advance.


  • After more research, I discovered the problem, and fixed it.  The actual door sensor was connected to SHM in addition to my virtual sensor.  I removed the actual sensor, and problem solved!

    Hope this helps someone in the future having the same problem.

  • Well, back to my original problem.  I removed the actual door sensor from SHM, but of course that means if an intruder goes through that door, it will not trigger an alert.

    So does anyone have a solution for my problem?  Again, I wish to arm the system using my wall-mounted tablet (I replaced an old ADT keypad), then exit through the door and not trigger an alert?
