Activate Siren on all Camera’s and Alarm

Activate Siren on all Camera’s and Alarm

It would be very useful and handy if there was a feature to sound the siren on all the installed camera’s and alarm within one location. I have multiple cameras and have always thought that it would be good to have a feature to turn on all the sirens simultaneously if needed to alert neighbours of a issue or scare someone away.

This is actually possible. If you have Alexa, there are many automations you can set up through 3rd party apps such as Simple Commands and IFTTT. Once you setup the routine in the app and then use that in Alexa, you can arm, disarm, set off the alarm, all with a set command. Once you learn how to use the

3rd party apps with Alexa, there's no limit to what you can do.

yes!... Especially since it can already start the recording and turn on the lights as a "linked device"

This is a good idea, I submitted a feature request similar to this in that any sounds from the ring system should be configurable to also sound on echo devices. In this way you could make sure the sounds are heard from wherever you like in the property.

When the alarm sounds it could even set all the echo devices to maximum volume - this would not only make it more disorienting for the intruder with the alarm sound coming from multiple locations but also alert the occupent better.

Another vote from me.

Was looking for an external siren in the UK and couldn't find anything. 

This would be at least be an alternative.

 

EDIT: Found another thread requesting this.

Hi,

 

I would also like an outside Siren / Speaker blasting out at high decibels. My entire street has triple glazed windows and when they are all shut and you can hardly hear the base station outside.

 

I set the siren off went next door to my neighbour and with their windows and doors closed we couldnt even hear the alarm sounding.

 

My Base station is located on the ground floor next to 8 ft from the external wall and 10 ft from a window.

Agreed!

Totally agree. Really disappointed that the system does not do this. On alarm - all lights, sirens and recording should start

New Neighbor

Totally agree

It would have to be safeguarded against false triggers for it to be feasible. Left to the general user, it'd go off when unwarranted. Silent capture would be better than crying wolf for every cat walking by.
