Base station additional speaker/keypad speaker

Hello, I have a SimpliSafe gen 3 alarm system. We will be extending our current system for a larger house but would like to have an extension of the base station speaker. Is there a product that we can purchase to do that?

Hi @nathan,

 

Absolutely! You can find our 105dB Extra Siren here

Is the just a siren or a speaker for the command prompts like “SimpliSafe Armed Home” too?

@nathan​ The Extra Siren only delivers tones from the system, and not voice prompts. So you will hear the alarm through the Siren, but it won't announce anything like "Front Door, Open" if you had an entry sensor installed.

If you get the extra siren as I did you can have it beep as it's being armed and aslo chime when a sensor is being opened as well.

What about the doorbell?  We have to place the base station downstairs or it fails to connect to the smartlock, but then we can't hear the doorbell upstairs.

@rjordan​ At this time, the Extra Siren does not sound when the doorbell has been rung.

Any information on whether a voice command extension speaker of some sort is forthcoming?

@sgw​ we offer arming via Voice Command via Google Assistant and Alexa, as part of the Fast Protect Monitoring Plan - so you could arm your system using a Nest Speaker or an Echo. But we are not developing our own component like that.

ok, I mis-spoke. I'm not looking for a microphone to give it commands. I want a repeater speaker to here the jiberish that your base station spews forth from another location in the house.

What name should we give these messages? voice command? voice prompt? the voice?' base messages?

Please, please, please create auxiliary speakers so we can hear voice prompts from the Base Station. Even with the Base Station set to the loudest level you cannot hear them in different rooms or levels in the house. Would think this is a number one priority for safety to the home owners.

@rrjak​ The Extra Siren currently cannot announce the Base Station's voice prompts. But if you create an "Ideas" post for this in the Product Requests and Suggestions section of the Community, we can pass this suggestion over to our dev team.

You can't do this for us?

This is a huge short coming of the entire system. We need to completely change brands to just get a second remote speaker. Crazy.
