How do I turn siren so it goes off if it see motion. As soon as I turn it on it just starts. I want to set it so it only goes off if there is motion.

Add new rules for the cameras that do not sound the alarm.

Create a custom mode with the cameras you need, and then add the siren to sound as the additional rule

 

OR

when you say turn on the siren sounds, are you hitting the icon or setting the siren on in the current mode ( you prob need to edit the mode )

I do most see Mode/rules only Mode....When I go into mode it just gives me the option armed (motion and audio detection on) which I have it on... the siren goes on as soon as I turn it to on...not when there is a motion only

Other options are disarmed/schedule/geofencing and Add a Mode

when I go to add a motion cause I thought maybe I could add for the siren to only go off when there is a motion.... it doesn’t give options, just a space for me to type.
