Keypad beeper alarm state

Hey all. I've recently thought of a suggestion for SS3.

When the siren is sounding, since the keypad has a buzzer in it, why not keep the keypad buzzer sounding continuously, to act like a mini-siren?

The beeps could be based on this format

Intrusion/panic alarm: Continuous beeping (Beeeeeeeeeeeeep) or two tone switch (Hi-beep, Lo-Beep, Hi-beep, Lo-beep)

Fire alarm: Smoke detector alarm (Beep, beep, beep, 2 second rest, beep, beep beep)

Carbon monoxide alarm: Continuous beeping (Beep Beep Beep Beep, 3 second rest, Beep Beep Beep Beep)

Auxiliary/medical alarm: Continuous beeping (Beep Beep Beep Beep Beep Beep)

Water/temp sensor alarm: Beep 1 time (Beep, rest 3 seconds, Beep, Rest 3 seconds)

This could be implemented with a software update.

Johnny, if you could take this recommendation into the dev team, I would really appreciate it.

Absolutely will pass this on, tech_aiden!

If I were to speculate a bit though, having the speaker more active like that might be a bit of a power drain.

Yeah, it could be a bit of a power drain, but I guess it'll attract the intruder "more" to smash the keypad.

Maybe this could be an option, as well.
