Silent Alarm

Is there a way to shut off the Siren, in Armed Mode, and have the system use alternate notifications? I want to install the system using only the Camera's, Door and Window Sensors, so that there is no chance of false notifications, But I do not want to have an audible alarm other than through Alexa or my mobile devices / laptop.... I'm wondering if anyone knows of a way to arm the system, shut off the Siren and have the warning done through Echo Devices, Ring: Chime Pro and Mobile Notifications ONLY....

Re: Silent Alarm

@MsMorganna698 While there is not a way to disable the siren on the Base Station, you can leave it in a Disarmed state and enable the alerts on each sensor. This will allow you to be notified of a door opening or closing, or if motion is detected, without the alarm actually triggering. You can enable alerts for each sensor in the Ring App > Main Menu > Devices > Alarm Base Station. From there, you can tap on each Contact Sensor and Motion Detector to enable the alerts for the desired sensors.
