I am trying to sneak into the house the afternoon early from work to set up a surprise for my wife and I just realized that if I open the front door or the garage she is going to get an alert on her phone from HomeKit (both the Yale lock and the garage door are HomeKit enabled and we get notifications when either opens/closes).
If I go into the HomeKit app and turn off notification for either device will it stop the notification on her device as well or are her notification settings within HomeKit independent of mine? I am the owner of the Homekit account if that helps.
