Can I use the Chime without doorbell

Is it possible to manually trigger the siren or another sound on the Chime? 

 

I don't have the doorbell. Does this mean, if I manually trigger the siren from the app, will the Base Station in addition to the Chime play the siren?

Hi @honestabe

 

Q "Is it possible to manually trigger the siren or another sound on the Chime? "

 

-A This feature is currently not available. (The chme can be used with a camera to trigger a sound when motion is detected)

 

Q "I don't have the doorbell. Does this mean, if I manually trigger the siren from the app, will the Base Station in addition to the Chime play the siren?"

 

-A You currently can not us the chime as a siren.

By "currently not available", do you mean that it might be implemented in the future? (the ability to manually trigger the siren or another sound) 

 

I'm confused. What are the sounds that the Chime gives off? The product page says, "...to play siren, home presence simulation, or melody based on motion detection".
