Alarm Siren Button Is Too Easy To Click By Mistake

When I use the iOS app and expand the video screen, the alarm button is very close to the "minimize" arrows on the screen and I risk to turn on the alarm by mistake. Would it be possible to make the arlam button smaller?

Yes, the new placement does get in the way or viewing area and also possibly pressing it by mistake.

Completely agree.  WAY to easy to accidently hit the button.

I’d like to agree here as well. I registered just to post this topic and I’m glad to see it’s already listed.

 

instead of minimizing, I press the stop button to exit full screen because those two buttons are too close. I’d suggest moving the alarm button to top center or the minimize button to bottom right.
