Feature request: Keypad or base beeps
It would be very helpful if when someone opened a door in home or away mode that the keypad or base would beep. They keypad has a ridiculously low beep(s) when it's triggered. So beeps that can be adjusted. This would be helpful to remind someone to enter the pin if they forgot the system was in home mode or when they enter and it was in away mode.

I'm a little unclear about what you're asking. The Keypad already does chirp for the countdown, before the main alarm sirens start. It's just not very loud (since the speaker in the Keypad isn't very powerful - and there is no way to change volume right now), and is rather high pitched. I've heard that some users might have trouble hearing it at all.
The Base Station, conversely, does not make any sound at all during the countdown, and also shows no indicator light. This is on purpose, so it can stall for time. If the intruder ever finds it, it should be too late for them!
But as Shiherlis mentions, there is also a Wireless Siren, which does both the main siren, and the countdown chirps. It's significantly louder, and even echoes the Door Chime for when Entry Sensors are opened. Check it out on our online catalog.

If an entry sensor is on the door, the Base Station (which you referred to along with the Keypad) should chime upon opening. Now, your Base may be in a location that makes it difficult to hear, but the option is available along with volume preferences.
The Keypad does not have the above feature, but posts for workarounds are on the old forums (and I assume the new upon data migration) that amplify it and the Base Station sounds. Others can assist in reiterating those options as I have never used them.
