How can the siren option be disabled to prevent inadvertent siren activation when a motion alert is triggered?  We want the notification so that we can check the video feed and possibly interact with a person, but don't want any chance of accidentally triggering the siren.

I think I got it now - it's the NOTIFICATION that has the option for turning the siren on. No, you can't remove that.

That setting is in your modes and rules. It's off by default so someone must have enabled it there.

There's no setting to completely disable the siren.  You can trigger it directly with motion (or not) and you can enable or disable push notifications.  I want the notification without any possibility of then having the siren turned on.

Reboot the phone and reinstall the app. The option is there with the latest app.

When that option is on, it instantly triggers the siren on a motion event.  Unchecking it does not remove the siren option from the notification.
