Alarm.com Nag Screens

This plugin depends on the status screen being shown immediately after login but, occasionally, users will be nagged by a variety of screens after logging into alarm.com asking them to confirm email addresses, etc. before they are shown their system status screen. If you're getting errors, the first thing you should try is manually logging into alarm.com on your browser and dismiss / handle any tasks you're presented before the status page. The plugin will most likely work once this is finished.
