Thank you for the answer Marcus. First of all I want to clarify that I dont have a Point already but looking into getting one in the Kickstarter campaign coming up.
I understand the privacy reasons, but here's some scenarios from the top of my head:
If I get a notification of "Broken glass", I would like to find out if its a fotball from the neighbor kids or a burglar.
If "door opened" notification appear, I would like to know what really happens. Is it the kids coming home, any intruders, or just a "bug" in the hardware/software.
If theres a notification that says "alarm sounding" which alarm is sounding, is it a fire alarm that need a new battery. Is it real fire? Is it the neighours alarm? A car alarm from a car parked outside the house's open window?
If we could check the status in the home by listen to the sound after a notification, it would clarify if its worth calling for emergency, taking the drive home to check, call a neighbour, or just stay calm.
