Hi @dcoonley, 

Just so I have this right, the Base Station no longer gives an announcement for things like turning off your system and when an Entry Sensor is opened? I would recommend resetting your Base Station by taking the following steps:

  1. Remove the power plug from the Base Station, which will reveal the security screw.
  2. Unscrew the security screw using a Philips head screwdriver.
  3. Twist the entire bottom panel counter-clockwise, and pull away to open the battery compartment.
  4. Take out one battery. This will fully power down the Base Station.
  5. Wait 3 minutes with the Base Station fully powered down.
  6. Reinsert the battery and reassemble the Base Station.
