Does Security Alarm set off camera sirens when triggered?

We had someone attempt to break in our home. Purchased the Ring Security Alarm, and multiple other cameras. It’s all set up linked with one another. Have it set when alarm sounds all cameras start recording. Question is if alarm is triggered do the cameras also set of their Alarms? Thank you.

They do not. It's been asked many times. Ring has passed the request along though. Maybe in a future update.
I also asked it outside lights could strobe or flash as well if the alarm goes off.

Hopefully they’ll get that worked out and pushed to us in an update. Sirens and the lights would definitely wake neighbors and hopefully scare anyone trying to gain access into a home. I appreciate you responding to this thread.

Nice suggestion to add external sirens and flashing strobes.

This feature is absolutely needed as I was shocked that they do not have this in place already due to a lack of an actual outside siren!!! Ring needs to get on one or the other now!

I would really like this feature also.  Right now I am using a work around using Home Assistant on a Rasberry Pi Computer attached to my network.  It works oK but would be nice to have this as a feature since the ring alarm doesn't have an external siren and can't be heard outside the house.  They already have the ability to activate the lights and start recording why not add a feature to set off the siren also.  Shouldn't be a hard thing to add.  I know from a software prospective you would need the ability in the API but they already added lights and recording  to the API, I don't see why they can't incorporate this.  This would really be a selling point for the system.
