Manually trigger Siren on Outdoor Cameras

Since the outdoor cameras have a siren built in to go off during an alarm, I would love to see an option to go in app and manually set a siren off on a desired camera like other companies do, eufy, ring, reolink they all let you do it. Sometimes I will get a ton of notifications while at work and look into cameras and it's geese lol and my neighbor has ring and he just hits the siren on a camera and of course the run inmy yard and I'm yelling in mine but nothing. Just would be a nice thing to have to help scare off things like that.

@lance843 2nd that suggestion, and to remind SS, its been out there before, and a long time ago. SS, don't hesitate for any concerns on negatively impacting battery life. As lance843 and others have positioned the request, it would be on the customer to whether to use it or not. Both my outdoor cameras are on AC so using an on demand siren feature wouldn't be a battery issue and, again, even those cameras on battery only, its the customer who owns it making the call.

Please consider Lance's post as an official request, log it and provide a response that it will be at least considered (I do apologize if it already shows "submitted" in the community).

Hello @lance843, 

Thank you for this suggestion! I will forward it to our devs for their consideration.

It would be an amazing feature to be able to play a siren sound on the fly on the simply safe app for all the cameras with speakers in them. I just experienced an issue today that would have been great to just play a siren sound instead of telling a creepy guy to go away.

I'm not looking to set off the alarm for authorities, just looking to play a siren sound to scare off an unwanted guest at your door.

Hi @biohazard156​,

Your post sounded similar to this request, so I merged it here. We have submitted this feature to our dev team, and once we hear more from them we'll provide an update in this thread!

I agree.  Simply safe products are not cheap and this should definitely be an option.
