Hi @bethesda ,

There's a couple of things that the system can do.

When the system is disarmed, you'll get a Door Chime from the Base Station, which is just a simple beep. Currently, it doesn't announce the actual name of the device.

You can also set up Secret Alert for each Entry Sensor, which can be done by mode. If your system is connected to the app, it will send a Push Notification to your phone, with exact info on which sensor was opened. When set for Off Mode (i.e. when the system is disarmed), Secret Alerts will replace the Door Chime, so the Base will no longer make a chime.

This procedure is more complicated than it should be.  If I want to go out a door early in the morning without the Base Station chiming (so I don't wake up or panic my wife), I have to go in and change and save a setting.  There should be a simple on/off for any sensor one might use on a door.  Am I missing something?
