countdown beep on main hub?

​We recently installed a SimpliSafe solution in our home and are generally very happy with it. That said, we are constantly setting off the alarm because we don't hear the keypad countdown beeping when a door is opened.​

​We have a fairly wide first floor and we typically forget the alarm is set, open one of the doors and then can't hear that the countdown beeper from the keypad is alerting us that the alarm is about to trigger.​

​Is it possible to set the main hub to beep as well so that we have a better chance of hearing the countdown beeps?​

Hi folks,

Yes, in case of an alarm event, it is the Keypad that chirps a countdown. If you have a Wireless Siren, that chirps too. But the Base Station stays silent. That behavior is on purpose, so that it can stay hidden from potential intruders before the main sirens actually come on.

I agree and many have asked. There is a option I have not tried but has been posted here several times. you can buy the extra https://simplisafe.com/wireless-siren and it's been posted that you can set it to beep when you trigger a door.

Interesting that this is marketed as an "extra sire" and will beep upon door open, but that the main base station will not beep upon door open.
