In the rules for camera 1 click " add device" and add the cameras you want and check the siren for each one. They will have the same options to adjust. That triggers others cameras what to do when camera 1 detects motion. That is assuming your upgrading your whole system. The reason @michaelkenward ask about your old system is they may not have a siren in the cam or be compatible with a newer smart Hub.

Thanks for your message. I probably should have been more specific. I was referring to a new Ultra system.

On my old system I can say if motion detected on cam 1 also start recording on camera 2

Can I do similar on a brand new 4k system.

In other words if motion detected on cam 1 also sound siren on cams 2,3&4

I'm still confused about what this "old system" is.

 

If you are just adding more cameras to an existing Ultra system, nothing changes. Anything you did on the old system carries over to the new one.

 

Just adjust the rules to take in the new cameras.

Don’t worry about old system. Irrelevant.

Can you make all sirens on all cameras fo off based in motion detection on just 1 camera

Not if "old system" has hub with siren. Next time check what the user has in place before sounding off. L

Thanks @dcfox1 ,

 

This confirms what I thought would be the case.

 

As per tag, I am considering purchasing a whole new system
