Custom Quick Responses on Doorbell

Community Member

It would be incredibly useful to have the option to choose Custom Quick Responses when the doorbell is pressed.


If the door goes while I'm in a meeting (or on a call, out having a meal etc) and unable to speak via microphone - being able to press a button to respond with a custom phrase like "Please put the parcel over the back gate" would be a lifesaver. ("You can just leave it"  would result in them leaving the parcel in full view of the sidewalk, so that's not a suitable alternative). 

Even better would be the option to choose the response from the notification drawer, so that I don't need to wait for the Home app to load.
