How do I turn off the annoying beeping when the system is being set to home? Thanks

Hi @Jmb6379 ,
It sounds like you're talking about the countdown timer, which comes from the Keypad, and happens when the system is armed in both Home and Away modes. At this time, there is no way to disable the countdown timer.
However, you can sort of disable the countdown. In Home Mode, you can set the Countdown timer to just 1 second, so it arms immediately and the countdown chirps won't start at all.
@davey_d Davey - this is an issue for me, too. I want to set the alarm to Home without waking people up. If I set the delay to zero, I can’t get out without triggering the alarm. It would be nice to be able to disable the beeping. I would not have a problem with it also disabling it for Away alarm. Thanks

Thanks for your suggestion. What you could do is open the door before you arm the system. Since the alarm only triggers if a sensor switches from Open to Closed, it won't trigger. When you close the door behind you, it'll be ready to trigger then.
It does occur to me that the Base Station will announce both "Alarm On - Home" as well as "Entry Sensor Open". But at least the Base Station's voice prompts volume can be adjusted in the settings (or turned off entirely). The Keypad's beeps cannot.
The specific beeping tone of the keypad is really upsetting to my dog and it seems like others have reported similar issues. Is there a way to turn that noise off yet? There's options to change all the other noises so it doesn't seem unreasonable that there should be an option for that too.

@Corduroy apologies, but the option is not available yet. In the meantime, the Keypad does have a tiny speaker hole in the back that you can plug up with tape or putty. That might reduce the sound enough that it's no longer a bother for your pet.
Agree it is annoying beep when set to home. Changing delay exit time is not an acceptable solution.
I agree with this AND we should be able to shut off the countdown timer completely. I can’t fully use my system because if I want to use the motion sensor it has to be in Away mode. The beeping sends my dog into a meltdown. I could silence it with my ADP system with no issue. I don’t understand how something so “simple” isn’t available in this system. You add in either their inability or their decision not to integrate Homekit for a large number of subscribers and that’s another checkmark in the “cons” column…
I have the same problem that the specific tone of the keypad beeps are really upsetting to my dog. There needs to be a way to turn this off.

Following up on the initial thread- is there a way yet to turn off the beeping countdown for when arming the system in “home” mode? The beeping is disruptive when one family member leaves while someone else in the family is asleep. Thanks!
@LindsSS There is currently no way to turn off the beeping countdown when arming your system into Home Mode. You can set the Exit Delay for Home Mode to 0 seconds to arm your system immediately and bypass the countdown. The guided flow in this Help Center article lists out how you can change the Exit Delay.
Any update? Just bought and setup my new system and hate the home chimes! This could be a make or break. Setting to one second is a ridiculous option. Please fix this annoying issue!
SimpliSafe folks - honestly, we deserve a better sense of which future enhancements you are working on and when you expect to release them. Folks in this post gave you one great enhancement request. How about committing to improving your product and marketing that to those paying the bills?
