My app no longer gives me alarm/siren setting option in mode settings.

 

Any fixes?  Anyone else experience this?

For android, you tap, add device, then choose your base under the Alarms section (you choose the base because it has the siren in it).

 

I don't see an alarm section in your screen shot, so I'm guessing that's the iPhone app, but it does look like your base is there is the screen shot you posted. The icon shows your base and a bell indicating the siren. Choose that.

Bmfesq,

 

Within the rules for your cameras, you can click "Add Device" and create a trigger condition for the siren. Is this what you're looking for?

 

(Mode > select base station > edit desired mode > edit desired rule > Add Device > select siren)

I understand how to set the alarm and other rules- THE SIREN-ALARM OPTION IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

Do I need to set anything on the BASE?

For rules........you have to tap "Add Device". In there you'll see where you can add the siren so that it goes off when motion is detected.

 

If you just want to set the siren off manually, they moved the botton. It is now a pull down menu/bar at the top of the screen when in live mode or when on the devices tab.

I see the manual alarm in live mode atop the screen.

The alarm option is just not there under adding device or new rules.

 

see the pics I attached.  It is simply not there anymore, did I miss an app update?  Somewhat tech savvy but this is baffling.

At the end of creating the rule, there should be an Add Device selection further down the summary page. If the rule already exists, re-edit it and use the same Add Device selection to add the alarm.

That did it. The icon that looks like the base has the siren option. Thanks
