I would like the option for a silent alarm instead of having the siren go off.
I agree. This should be a simple firmware update and option added in the alarm app. This would also make it easier for the initial test period if your system is monitored. We have animals, a cat, a dog. The siren going off terrifies them, and they want to run away. Please enable an option for “Silent Alarm” or just an option to turn off the frigging siren!
