Enable camera speaker for siren use

Each and every camera has a speaker for the PRO 2, why not create a patch file to enable the use of the siren through the camera speaker.  If the owner has cameras setup around their house that would be a great outdoor deterrent

Great idea!

I really like this idea! I would use it to keep my pets off the table if they trigger the motion sensor. Better than a minute long siren in a distant room.

Great idea. When the alarm is triggered you can't hear it very well oitside. If the camera would do it as well, knowingly not as loud as the base, that would be great.  I have a hard enough time getting the speaker to work from the app as it is...might as well have the speaker do something.

Very Much agreed NETGEAR, please consider

Yes, please!!  I use these cameras to alert me to bear activity.  The siren inside on the base station is no use for me.  But a loud siren outside at bear activity would scare the bears away from human habitation and ultimately save their lives!  Thank you for your consideration.

I like this idea also!  It would be perfect to have every camera sound an alarm when you trigger the base station alarm.

 

I’ve always thought “what good is it to trigger the alarm on the base station when the intruder is outside and probably wouldn’t hear it, based on the location?”

I was just thinking of this myself with my new system! That and having the option to have a time stamp on the recorded video. The speakers in the cameras won't be capable of 100db though, but would be sufficient in conjunction with the base station siren.
