Alarmhandler asks you once for your SMS alarm PIN code and then stores this inside the app. When you’re setting up Alarmhandler to control your SMS alarm, you specify the type and phone number. This means the app knows exactly how the SMS message should look like. After you’ve hit one of the control buttons in the app, the standard message/SMS app opens up with a pre-filled message, ready for you to send by just tapping Send.
Yes, just add more estates under Select estate by tapping +. To add the SMS alarm in use for the different estates, just tap + on the Overview page and select SMS Alarm.
