How to use the TIME column to check Oracle database backup mode

You can use the TIME column in the V$BACKUP view to check the length of an Oracle backup mode with this sample query from an Oracle expert.

Is there a script that can be used as an alert that tells if the database has been in backup mode for a specified period of time? (Ex. 1 hr, 2 hr. etc.)
