Entry Sensor Announce available now!
We’re happy to announce that a popular feature request is rolling out to all users! Included in the Fast Protect™ Monitoring and Self Monitoring w/Camera Recordings plans, Entry Sensor Announce enables your Base Station to verbally call out the sensor by name whenever it’s opened. e.g. “Front door Entry Sensor open” instead of the chime.
You can enable Entry Sensor Announce in the SimpliSafe® app:
- Tap the three-bar ☰ Menu on the top left
- Select My System
- Select Device Settings
- Select the Entry Sensor you would like to modify
- Under Entry Sensor Alert, select Sensor Name Voice Prompt
This is a per-sensor setting, so you’re able to choose which sensors produce a Voice Prompt, and which sensors produce just a chime. Also keep in mind that the announcement is only available for preset list of sensor names; if you use a custom name, the Base Station will revert to just “Entry Sensor open”.
The feature is available already on iOS as of this posting, and will be rolling out to Android users in the next couple of weeks.
